Little tidbits of life this week that made me laugh, think, and pause....


While lounging in the house in my new shorts.
the Mr. - "What's up Navajo?"


After letting the Chitlin roam in the backyard nakie on a hot day...
"There's poop by the door... Weird... We don't have a dog."


"Ok... so we made it up the skate ramp.  Who's going to help me down?"

They Don't Call it "Change" for Nothing

Things are no longer as we know it in our little place called Cubicle Land.. In fact, life has certainly changed... Our cubicle walls have been torn down, leaving us exposed to curious bystanders and passersby.  We have been moved around from our comfort zones and forced to sit closer to our "team".... and by closer, I mean - in each others' face and catching awkward glances past the top of our computer screens.  So every day I look over and think... "There you are!"  This place is no longer Cubicle Land... but more like the Land of "Everyone Can Now See How Much I Eat and Shop Online When I'm Supposed to Be Super Swamped with Work so I Better Be More Conscious of What I Eat, Do, and Say" pods.  Yes... that would be more accurate.  Apparently, it's a really great way to get to know your team.  Like people now know I have the bladder of a small child and the thirst of a dehydrated alcoholic - two things not matched well together ... and I now know, from looking around the room, that some people think that picking your nose while staring at your computer screen is the same thing as picking your nose in your car.... it's as if no one sees you doing it... but really everyone does.  *sigh*

I suppose I must do as they do in the wild... and just adapt to the change.

They Don't Call it "Busy as $*&@" for Nothing

Holy beJesus... I never knew what busy was until I became a Mom & Wifey. (I remember when busy just meant plans to go to the bars 5 nights out of the week.) It's come to the point that if I actually have NOTHING to do... I just don't know what to do with myself.  Like now... the Chitlin is taking a nap, the house was cleaned yesterday, the Mr. is preoccupied with watching Nascar, and our dryer is waiting to be fixed until tomorrow... uhhhhhh tick toc, tick tock... at least we have each other dear blog and blogging friends. :) 
So... the last few weeks have been busy as $*&@ and I can finally just sit, read, catch up, and write.  It's been a whirlwind of events... including a couple of Birthdays.

We flew up to the Bay Area Memorial Weekend for my Bday... woo hoo! Turned 21 again!

Then the Chitlin turned 2!

We also had Grandma in town, the Chitlin's Birthday dinner, and then her Birthday party... as well as the after party... It was also Sister Bestie's and 3 of my Besties' Birthdays right after each other... We also had Bestie Kate's Baby Shower... but somehow managed to throw in a beach day and make it to today... Fathers Day :)
