Envy

September 27th, 2012

I have a 45-60 min commute home every evening.  Usually, I call my mom or my friends to catch up, and it’s great.  Sometimes, no one is available, so it’s just me, the many other commuters, and my thoughts.   Let me do some simple math for you!  Catie + alone w/ thoughts = not […]

I have a 45-60 min commute home every evening.  Usually, I call my mom or my friends to catch up, and it’s great.  Sometimes, no one is available, so it’s just me, the many other commuters, and my thoughts.

 

Let me do some simple math for you!  Catie + alone w/ thoughts = not good.  Did you follow that?

 

*Matt, at this point, it’s wise if you stop reading – you might consider The Big D if you keep reading*

 

See, I have a SUV, and I LOVE my SUV.   It’s comfy, stylish & big enough.  However, I have mini van envy…  Seriously – I see these mom’s in mini vans on my way home, and the van’s look roomier, comfier, and easier to get the car seat in & out of.  Not to mention, it might have better gas mileage (but probably by only 2 mpg, not enough to make an impact, I’ll need a Ford Fiesta for that).  I know, what you’re all saying…”Catie – mini van’s are NOT the cool thing & you’re a cool kid.”  But guess what my friends?  You’re right, I’m a cool kid, but one who doesn’t care – mini van’s are where it’s at.  Plus, I think I’d look awesome in a mini van.

Go Pack! Go!

September 24th, 2012

Apparently Aunt Sarah didn’t read the disclaimer on the last email & couldn’t bear to see Link in a Bronco’s shirt.  She was kind of enough to send him this jersey.  Not to worry Sarah, he’s wearing it today along w/ a Packer’s onsie underneath.

The problem is not that I live in a split household & my son is proudly wearing one of his dad’s favorite football teams.  The problem isn’t even that he has 2 chins, because I love his 2nd chin & i love calling him chinners.  The problem is I’ve been hearing he is starting to resemble me a smidge, and I see it too, WHEN HE’S DOING HIS DOUBLE CHIN.  ugh.

bark’n’splash

September 9th, 2012

I’ve been waiting weeks to take Lucy to one of our local Bark’n’Spalshes.  I kind of figured Lucy wouldn’t get in, unless they had a kidde pool, in which they didn’t.  My hopes remained high. I couldn’t even coax her with a treat…ugh.  Lucy remained the only dry dog there.  Maybe next year we’ll go […]

Matt & Link spent a lot of quality time together yesterday while I enjoyed a bike ride with a friend.  When I got home, Matt was trying to teach Link to crawl.
C: Matt, Stop!  I’m not ready for him to crawl.  I like him being in 1 place.

M: But he wants to…look, he kicks his leg like a frog.  He’ll be crawling anyday

C: Nah, he’s still got another month.

 

I turned around this evening to see him scooching after a toy.  UGH!
