Brainstorm with me please... My 9 year old is currently trying to create a school wide notice about conduct.
Words cannot express how much I want this $130 skeleton, AND if the brand name is to be trusted, he is not merely a Halloween skeleton, but an everyday skeleton and also essential. So I would be justified in sitting him casually at my kitchen table year round.
That’s my city. I’m nowhere near where the shooting happened and I don’t think I know anyone who lives in that neighborhood anymore. I’m not hopeful that there will be any meaningful follow up coverage, but I was a little surprised to see it reported by Buzzfeed news since I keep is set to US coverage.
Personally, I started more projects instead of finishing any, but here is the art and craft post, so add yours!
There were some really beautiful projects last week, and hopefully we’ll see some more this week.
Since I alluded to wanting to bring back the craft roundup posts we used to have when I applied for authorship, I figured I should make good on that, So without further ado ... let’s post some projects in the comments
In addition to the new baby (he's enormous!), we're apartment hunting.
The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, in fact.
A drunk guy just offered to pay for my groceries at the Superstore. For perspective, It was around 8pm, not prime drunk grocery shopping time, my husband was right there, I'm 36 weeks pregnant, and it was just over $100 worth of groceries. Obviously I said "no, thanks" to which he relied "are you sure... it wouldn't…

I intended to write this as a response to Nycyclist's post about considering quitting facebook, but it's not totally relevant, and I think might sort of smack of thread hijacking so I figured I'd be better served posting here. (Even though posting to my own Kinja feels a lot like shouting into a void) But here is why…

AAAAAAnd she's "concerned about my weight". Of course. The 10 pounds of weight I've gained is matter for concern. Obviously. And she…
It's my husbands day off/birthday and he and our daughter are playing The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess, and it's the cutest thing ever. She was trying to whistle for Epona, even though she doesn't know how to whistle.
One of the pertinent details about me is that I'm currently 6 months pregnant, and coming to terms with the fact that this fetus owns a penis. My older child is a girl, and I really wanted another one. Not that there's anything wrong with boys, I have 3 nephews who are perfectly lovely little boys. It's just that it…
