Hair, There, and Everywhere

Hair, There, and Everywhere

Beanie is having some issues lately.   He’s got a sinus infection, an upper respiratory infection, he’s teething, and he’s on Week Three of not sleeping through the night.   But more important than any of that nonsense, his hair is having some problems. Travel with me for a moment back through the Land of Bean’s Hair.   Its a magical, mythical place.   I didn’t even know babies could have hair like this kid. When Bean was born, I didn’t really get to see him right away because I…

Bake Like You Mean It

Bake Like You Mean It

So, we all know that I’m not a baker.   This has been proved time and again.   Most recently with cake pops (read about Part I here and Part II here).   But I’m nothing if I’m not persistent, and so I continue to make the effort to become a better baker. Next step:   Boxed cake mixes. Beanie’s daycare has a Halloween party on Friday and – if he feels better – we’re gonna go.   He gets to wear his costume and I get to bring treats…

“I’m Funked Up”

“I’m Funked Up”

For the past two weeks, something has been a little off.   I have been trying to put my finger on it, but its been hard.   Nothing seems to be really wrong. Work is good.   Beanie is good (aside from a little respiratory infection).   Money is good.   There’s nothing really to stress me out.   But still.   Things have just felt a little…well…off. And that’s when I realized.   It wasn’t me having an off week.   It was Chris.   Chris is the one…

She’s a Super Geek! Super Geek! She’s Super Geeky!

She’s a Super Geek!  Super Geek!  She’s Super Geeky!

Okay, as I write this post Chris is sitting next to me to tell me exactly what to say because I don’t speak the geek. And he does. Apparently, someone who shall remain nameless was messing around with the blog this week and made some changes that may have caused some problems with your feeds. (PAUSE:   If you read that last sentence and don’t know what I’m talking about, then you probably weren’t affected/effected/defected/erector set…sorry.   Sometimes word association games take over my thought process.) What Nameless Person wanted…

If I Won the Lottery…

If I Won the Lottery…

This week, a gas station just up the street from my neighborhood sold a winning lottery ticket.   I think the lucky bastard person won one million dollars.   I keep looking around my town for who it could possibly have been.   I was almost convinced I had found the winner when I was in the grocery store and I saw this one woman putting about 10 lobsters in her buggy from the fish monger.   But then she used a coupon to buy them, so I’m not so…

The Untouchables

The Untouchables

When I was growing up, we had a formal living room in our house.   It was my Mom’s room.   It was where she kept her collection of porcelain bunnies.   It was where actual coffee table books laid on an actual coffee table.   It was where the china was kept. It had white carpet. My sister and I were forbidden to enter the formal dining room.   The rest of the house was ours to destroy, but that formal dining room was all Mom’s.   And death…
