I don’t know how many boxes I’ve seen in the last week that are simply labeled “random.”
Holiday, Dorothy, frames and kitchen? Yep. That all belongs together. Throw it in storage. We’ll figure it out later.

Is it possible that my kid became a toddler over night? Miss D went to sleep on Sept. 29 as a baby, and woke up on Sept. 30 as a big 11 month old. Like, I swear she acts older. She sat and watched a whole show on her own yesterday. Unheard of. She actually started telling me specifically when she wants to go “ni-ni” – using words! She’s even started throwing tantrums with the best of them.
I am not prepared for this.

So, remember that time I was trying to give away our cat, Halle?
No one wants her.
Not having the heart to take her to the animal shelter, both Halle and Harley found themselves living on my parent’s patio while we all lived in limbo for two weeks. Halle loves the outdoors, while Harley is terrified. We had hopes that maybe Halle would go exploring and never come back – therefore eliminating our problem. However, they both adjusted rather quickly to becoming outdoor cats, and neither really left the patio.
Until one day, Harley grew a pair and went on a grand adventure. She was gone all day and came back at sunset. That happened a few days in a row… until she stopped coming back. No one has seen her in weeks.
Yes. I lost the wrong cat. But never fear, she’s not at the pound (I called). She’s probably cuddle whoring it up indoors at the neighbor’s right now. Typical Harley. She goes where the gettin’ is good.
Halle, on the other hand, is currently sitting outside on the patio in her heated cat house just laughing at me. “Try to get rid of me, mom? I’ll show you!”

I die at Ellen DeGeneres’ version of the Matthew McConaughey Lincoln commercial. I love me some Matthew, but seriously. Just die.
Funniest woman on TV. Hands down.

I weigh myself once a month, when I do Dorothy’s monthly update. Yes I actually hold her and weigh us together, and then just weigh myself and do the math. That’s what you call scientific guessing.
However this month was interesting. Either I’ve lost about 7 lbs in the last 30 days by doing absolutely nothing, or my scale is very off. I’m hoping for the former, but we all know it’s probably the latter.
We’ll just pretend that I’m the size of my high school self. Okay?
cinco | pumpkins
I’m in need of pumpkins. Several pumpkins. Since I may or may not be putting together a toddler project inspired by The Children’s Museum’s Creepy Carnival Haunted House. Okay that’s exactly what I’m doing…
People of the Ville – where do I find these without breaking the bank?
Random, I tell ya.
