More Tidbits…

…because I’m tired people.  And I’m still sick.  Yep, it’s been a month now, and I can’t shake it.  So here are a few little bits of things to keep you entertained…

1.  “THE MUSIC DIDN’T SUCK.”  Yes folks, this was an advertisement for a church that I received in the mail.  First of all, I don’t go to Mass because the music “doesn’t suck”.  I go to worship God.  Second of all, isn’t the word “suck” kind of a misfit for a church ad???

2.  On Friday evening, my little boy had a baseball game.  Can I just say how much I am enjoying the baseball–seriously.  I didn’t think I would really get that into it, but I really do enjoy the games!  Anyway, it was a 6:00 game, and I fed the kids early but of course not me, because why would I do something good for myself?  So when I got home from the game, I grabbed a beer and a bag of chow mein noodles.  Yes, I ate 1/3 bag of chow mein noodles and a beer for supper.  And I wonder why I can’t get over this cold…

3.  Here is my friend:

Isn’t he cute?!  Actually, I’m not sure of his sex.  Or should I say gender?  I think we used to say sex, and now we have to say gender.  Whatever.  I love this little frog.  He is on our deck  He sits in the same spot all day long, and then at night he disappears.  The next day, he’s in a different spot.  It’s sort of like hide and seek.  This has been going on all summer, and now fall.  I think I’m going to give him a name.  I’ll let you know what I come up with.  And it’ll be better than “froggy,” which is what I’ve been calling him.

We also have a chipmunk friend.  He is too quick for me to get a photograph.  I think he has a nest under our sidewalk in the front garden.  He likes to dig in the pot of petunias on our stoop, and he makes a rather large mess of the mulch.  He digs in it and flicks it all on the sidewalk.  I call him Chippy.  Yes, it’s very original.  I’m sure Henry get’s his creative naming abilities from me.

4.  In addition to dreams about accounting and husbands leaving, I am now dreaming about not having anything to blog about.  Oh the pressure, people!

5.  I still have 135 bulbs to go…  I have had time to plant not a one of them.

6.  Apple tarts make a delightful breakfast.  Another reason I’m not well, I’m sure. 

7.  Ella loves to read.  Here she is, on the couch, reading Jemima Puddleduck.  Don’t you just love to say Jemima Puddleduck?  And also Mrs. Tiggywinkle. 

Unfortunately, she doesn’t stay in this position long.  She’s a mover.

8.  I got this “one word” meme from my sister.  Henry answered it, too.  Here are his answers:

9.  We’re going to a Hokie football game this weekend.  I’m excited and nervous and dreading it all at once.  I’m certain I will have stories to tell when I get home, and at least for a while, will not have that blog-fodder nightmare.

10.  Did you happen to see the Virginia Tech v. Nebraska game on Saturday night?!  I’m so proud of my Hokies!!!  Woohoo!!!  Yes, things are looking up in Blacksburg.



Alrighty, quiet time (and I use that term loosely) is over now.  Must go hang with Hank.

  1. Hooray for your Hokies! (I can rejoice with you because my Dukes keep winning, too.) And I love that you have backyard friends, too. I just posted about my backyard deer this morning. Hope you’re feeling better soon.

  2. Hope you feel better Kristen… I’ve been a bit under the weather too. I think I’m a carrier of Strep (the strep throat kind, not the BAD kind). Ugh…

    Your first point totally caught me – about the church that advertised itself as the church where the music didn’t suck. Good grief! Because we all go to church to be entertained, apparently. Ugh. As if being relentlessly contemporary was what counted.

    I love the frog :0)
