Getting My S*** Together.

Hi Guys! Where ya been?!

Kinsey turned 1! We bought a house! We moved! Kinsey got shots! Bryant got sick! I got sick! Kinsey got an epic, multi-day fever, 8 days post-shots!

Did I leave anything out?! Oh, yes. Grad school. I am doing that too. Holy shit dudes (and ettes), I’ve been busy.

I woke up this morning and felt a sense of disorder and decided that I needed to turn off Vampire Diaries and piece by piece, get my life back together. I got my ass out of bed at 7am (shut it, that is EARLY), and I did the dishes, made Kinsey’s breakfast, took a bunch of empty boxes out to our recycle bin, and got dressed, all before the little woke up at 8. I thrive on routine and order, and our life has been the opposite of that, so I needed that 1 hour to pump me up! I suppose when your house is a disarray of boxes, that sort of thing happens, but enough already.

I meal-planned today. Haven’t used my fancy template in about 3 weeks, and instead, have been scribbling meal ideas on the backs of receipts and making several trips to Trader Joes because I KEEP FORGETTING TO BUY LIME! Our Pad Thai last night was missing scallions, and cilantro, which is what happens when you send your husband out for berry cobbler ingredients and he comes back with parsley. Oye.

It has been snowing too. Not even the real kind–but the stupid, may as well be rain, kind. Which, would be fine, except it is Spring now, and my front and backyard is a bunch of dirt…nay, MUD. So, every time I let the damn dogs outside, they trample in with mud packed into their paws, and I’m vacuuming and mopping, yet somehow miss some, and then find Kinsey with dirt all over her face, because dirt is tasty. Then, I resolve myself to the couch, and camp out watching more Vampire Diaries while Kinsey naps, because this cold was wicked awful, and I can’t mop anymore. Out of my control, I suppose, but what is in my control is everything else (and the remote, so I really should just shut it off, but I HAVE TO KNOW WHO THIS JOHN GILBERT DUDE IS!)


Meal planning.


Cooking like a mother f*ing boss.

And, once Utah gets the memo that it is officially Spring, I’ll get my ass outside, and I’ll rake/weed/plant and whatever else people are supposed to do with yards.

I’m getting my mojo back, and thankfully, no one suffered too badly during my multi-week, ‘I don’t want to do anything’ state of mind.


So, what have you guys been up to? I’m way behind on my reader as well (go figure). Will catch up soon….probably. 🙂



  1. We have snow here just coming and going, I wish spring would just come already. Phoebe is waking up at 6 which results in me being exhausted and not having chance to do any of those nice waking up productive things, and being shattered in nap times. I haven’t got her jabs done yet (oops) since she’s had illness after illness… I’m hoping this week will be the week! Only 6 weeks late. Hope the new house is great!
