Weekend Fails

You'd think over the course of three days I couldn't do that much damage, but you'd be wrong.

I share these in hopes that

1. You feel better about yourself
2. You will share your fails so I will feel better about myself.

So in no particular order, here's how I screwed up:

1. Friday night I realized I had a load of clothes in the washing machine that had been washed who knows when but had to be rewashed because they smelled bad

2. Saturday I was exhausted and slept ridiculously late. When I got up, there were some dirty dishes I needed to wash so I filled the sink with soap and water to let them soak. And promptly forgot about them. Until Sunday.

3. Saturday night we had Japanese food night with some friends. I wore a blue kimono someone kindly gave me. When I got out of the car, there was blue dye on the car seat. So now we have to get that cleaned. I also got some blue dye on my gray shorts. Yay. (Does not change the fact that I do love the kimono!)

4. Sunday, Jeremy decided to mow the grass, so I went to the grocery store. I needed napkins. I even wrote it down. And I didn't get napkins.

5. I thought I'd clean out the fireplace (this is it's own fail since I should have done this back in spring). I was vacuuming up some of the soot when the hose on the vacuum got clogged. I cleaned everything out and started up the vacuum again but when I cleaned it out, I must have jostled some of the dirt in there because it poofed up a big cloud of soot all over the living room... which has a white couch and white berber carpet. So yay.

6. I had just started growing my nails out a bit but uneven nails drive me crazy and I wasn't patient enough to wait until I had a nail file, so I bit them all off. =(

7. Last, I would like to mention the fail that was leaving LSH out of last night's Game of Thrones season finale. HBO, you fail.


Please tell me you did something dumb this weekend too. Please.

  1. I have lime green paint in speckles all over me from painting the deck furniture. I can relate. I may also have ruined my Nike slides which I love and have had forever. They are now black with a greenish tinge. Aunt Kiki

Cloak Girl

So back in college there was a girl who wore a forest green cape every day. I don't remember her name, though I roomed across the hall from her one year. She was obviously very into fantasy. She loves Lord of the Rings and had a whole fantasy village set up outside her room window.

She was a little "weird" to most people and was often made fun of. I remember just thinking she was a little different. I mean, I liked LOTR too, but I didn't wear a cape. No one else did.

She was a nice girl though. I know she must have known she was the object of a lot of jokes. Despite what your mockers think, you're never oblivious to that.

Well, today I made a green cloak. I am now cape girl. I guess some people might mock me. Honestly I don't care. Not at this point. I have learned to sew and can make a cloak. In fact I did so in just a few hours today. So I'm pretty proud of myself.

The character I'm cosplaying is Kvothe from The Name of the Wind. If you like fantasy…

Mom of the Year

Before I write this blog post, I want to say a few things. By its nature, this post is exclusive. It is about one thing and not about other things. But it is not meant to say that one thing is better than another. It's just not about all those things.

All of us who are parents are doing the best we can. I respect and admire those who choose to stay home with their little ones full-time. You're doing hard work, and it's a great thing. 

I see a lot of posts from parents who stay home with their children talking about how they love it and it's the best thing. They can't imagine not doing that. Wonderful! I see posts that get shared that extol staying home full-time with your children. That's great, too. 

But this post is specifically for the mom who works full-time outside the home. I don't see much for those of us who do that, so this is for us. I know "working mom" is a bit of a misnomer since all moms are working moms, but for clarity's sake, tha…

My Journey of Health, Perspective, and Trust

This is less a post about failing, although I certainly had those moments. It's just something I'm sharing. I hope it helps someone in some way.
It started back in May of 2011. I just randomly started having breathing trouble and was coughing a lot. Of course working at WebMD, I began a long process of self-diagnosing. Something I try to never do now. My symptoms seemed to point to asthma, although I imagined a dozen worse scenarios. The doctor thought it could be severe allergies so he gave me some medications to try. It didn't help. 
I went back and he gave me an asthma test. It did not indicate asthma but did show some improvement in breathing with a breathing treatment, so I then got inhaled steroids and a rescue inhaler. That did seem to help a bit... but when I say a bit, I really mean that. I spent the whole summer barely able to breathe and unable to be outside for more than a couple of minutes. I couldn't work out. I could barely walk around for any length of…
