We're only nine days into the new year and I've already learned so much. Not about actual somewhat, or at least for the most part, important things. But things none the less! A sample of my newly acquired knowledge: My husband is a home improvement perfectionist. Apparently. Yesterday I started what I thought was a … Continue reading Some stuff I’ve learned…
Okay, before you read any further, I'm going to need you to promise not to judge me on a couple of points. (Or at least not publicly. Please and thank you.) 1.The fact that I just put up my Christmas tree. Yes, I know it's November 14. Yes, I know this is ridiculous. This is … Continue reading A Crafty Christmas Start
Here we are at the end of July and I'm not quite sure how to feel about it ending. July has been a little all over the place. If there was ever a month that needed to get it's shit straightened out, it's definitely been July. For one thing, we've been crazy busy this past … Continue reading Bye Bye July…
An update on my gardening adventure. Because I know the curiosity has been killing you. A little while ago, I wrote about the most likely impending death of my recently planted garden. Based on my previous gardening (and also anything Pinterest related) experience, it was all but a given. But somehow despite storms, a few … Continue reading Garden Gone Wild
So, I've been crazy busy lately and just haven't had time... yeah, that's already a lie. The truth is I have been watching a lot of hockey (A LOT) and have been entirely too focused on that to do anything but the day-to-day essentials. That's kind of like being busy, right? Tomorrow is game 7 … Continue reading Hey, look over there….
Birds are chirping, the sun is shining, insects are emerging from every nook and cranny... spring is here! With all this sunshine and happiness also comes my annual tradition of heading to our local greenhouse and rounding up the latest collection of all the plants I want kill. Er, grow, I mean grow. (I really … Continue reading Green Thumb Wannabe
I'm not sure if I mentioned it or not (just kidding, I know I've been insufferable) but the McGills went to WrestleMania! And it was every bit as awesome as I thought it could be. So awesome, in fact, that I'm just now getting started on this post because it turns out post-vacation adulting is … Continue reading The McGills Excellent Adventure
Earlier this week I was at the office doing a little work on an off day. I was there in what is basically my non-office hours uniform: wrestling t-shirt, yoga pants, bird's nest hair and ancient, beat-up Chuck Taylors (seriously, I bought them when I was in the 7th grade. That's more years ago than … Continue reading What’s my age again?
As far as I'm concerned "Tues" is a four letter word, but not one of the fun ones. (I know it's not an actual word, but just go with me here). Monday gets the bad reputation, but we all know Tuesday is just the worst. At least with Monday you've had a Sunday to rest … Continue reading Tuesday, ugh…
OK, it's getting serious. Only 30 days until we pack the tiny family Fiesta and head west to Texas for WrestleMania, baby! For most normal people, the 30-day-out marker would be a good time to maybe kind of start thinking about what you might want to take. But, as you should have learned by now, … Continue reading Time to pack….
