Please excuse my dust...

I changed my layout and completely hate it.

Moral of the story: Make sure you have enough time to create it then fix it. ;)

We'll be back up with a better layout soon. Tonight, perhaps??



weeknight tidbit

The newest in the weekday lineup! It's Tawdry Tuesday!! ;)

Keeping the definition in mind, I'll try to grace your presences with the most tacky crap of the week. ;) What a great Tuesday uplift! Here goes this week's tawdriness:

*According to Merriam-Webster, my go-to guide for words, here is a real word-

spantabulus (verb) : something wonderful or splended
that paper you wrote was spantabulus.
Seriously?? I may have to look around for another online dictionary that I can call home. I don't think old man Merriam (or Webster) would appreciate such an uncool word in their catalog of the English language. Blah.

*Here is one of the dumbest tattoos I've ever seen. And what a genius place for it. Awesome, dude.

*Another delightfully tacky tattoo. What are these people thinking???....

Saint Canine. Neat. Remind me to get that one.

Now, go out and be tawdry! If nothing else, maybe you've learned a new word today. :-D
I need to go write 50 thousand Biology Lab reports and write a research paper and make 2 PowerPoint presentations. Don't you wish you were in college???
Happy Tawdry Tuesday, all!



Web Wednesday

Happy humpday, all! FYI- it just means it's the middle of the week. Not the other thing. ;) I thought I might start posting some of my recent favorites on the web every Wednesday. Hence the term "Web Wednesday." I know, very clever. I pride myself on that.

Old Magazine Covers

Truck Spills - whale

Funny idea

Ctrl vs. Esc

My BIGGEST pet peeve!

Okay, that's all for this week's Web Wednesday. Hope you liked 'em! And don't be shy, I like comments. ;-D

♽ Happy Earth Day ♽

For all you treehuggers out there, today is your day!! ;) Actually technically it's the Earth's day, but it doesn't know the difference, so I'll give it to you greenies. Let's all go plant a tree!

Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge supporter of all things green and environmentally friendly, but I think lately it's more of a fad and the cool thing to do. It's kinda sad, really. I guess if your need to "be doing the coolest thing" is what gets you to go more "green", then that can only help. My issue is that in a year when everyone moves on to something else, what good will it have done? Really? If you have a strong opinion otherwise, feel free to share. I'd love to hear it.

P.S.- I used to own a green cleaning business, so I know quite a bit about this subject. Soon I'll post a "My favorite green cleaners" post. ;) Look forward to it!

In other not-so-good-news, I had to put my cat down yesterday. :(

VERY sad.

Her name was Naya and she was such a good kitty. Only 8 mos. old, but had Feline Infectious Peritonitis. She was pretty much doomed from the start. Here's a quick pic:

That's me loving on her. ;) She looks a little scared. He he. The vet said to wait at least 6-8 weeks before getting another cat to make sure all of the FIP virus is out of the house. And don't worry folks, it's not catchable by humans.

Okay, I wish you all a wonderful earthy day!



Just a little musical FYI: Here's what I like to listen to on the way to school...

What are your favorite driving songs??....



Trying the Haiku

I'm pretty sure the English version of the Haiku is 5-7-5 syllable form, so we'll go with that. Here we go:

once the sun was here
it has now gone behind clouds
show yourself dear sun

;) I wish it were sunny. Obviously.

✯ My kiddos are driving me crazy ✯

On Saturday it was 82∘outside. Sooo nice.
(Don't mind the Urology sign...) ➠
We went to the Daffodil Parade and had a great time forgetting sunscreen. Oops, I got a little red. Anyway, the kids played and ran and played some more. And with all that energy release + the sun, they slept GREAT.

Then came the next day. It has been cold and rainy again. My kids are confused. Their bodies are in Spring mode, but their shoes are in mud mode. So of course they have to stay inside and they're acting like I'm keeping them from seeing Hannah freakin' Montana right outside or something. I'm just about to send them out and tell them to go mud wrestle and come in at dark. ;)

Any ideas for what to do on rainy/cold Spring days??...

That's all for now, folks. Love it or just come back later. :p



[ -March for Babies is coming- ]

Help me to help babies!! :) Check out my page and see a picture of my little preemie at 3 days old under the special lights for jaundiced babies. She's got a cool pair of shades on, too. ;)

Please donate! Any and all amounts are welcome and appreciated. Let's help those babies!

Thanks again! xoxo



I know I haven't posted in awhile, but.....

I'm sitting here in my usual coffee shop studying Biology (gag-- okay, I actually secretly love it.) and across from me are 4 high school girls studying for one of their tests and they ALL HAVE MACBOOKS. All of them. If I could do it inconspicuously, I'd take a picture with my Macbook and show y'all! Yeah, my Macbook that took until I was 24 to get. And they're about 16. Wow. And just to show me up a little more... They all have nicer & newer cars than I do!!! SERIOUSLY?!!? Who are their parents???

I just want to say that I never had crap like that when I was in High School. I'm not bitter though... ;)

Okay I swear I'll post more later. Lots going on, not lots of time!! ¡Ciao!
