Where I update you on my most insignificant thoughts and activities.

I've decided that I like Michael Buble. Does that officially make me old or cool, I can't tell? I once saw him on a talk show and he was SO manic, I could have sworn he was a hard-core drug user.

On a related note, I bought a bathing suit at Target, and I can't decide if I like it, or if I look like I'm 95. This does not relate to potential drug-use, but my inability to differentiate between modern and mumu.

L has gone two days without a nap. And it has resulted in her cryyyyyying at the top of the stairs for 10 minutes (after being put to bed), because she cannot find her water bottle. Darkness and half-blindness and tiredness do not mix. Apparently.

And in the spirit of L-themed disasters, let me offer you this photo:

Today I painted 2 of 4 walls in my bedroom. And it took for-freaking-ever. Painting seems like it should only take 20-30 minutes per wall. Sadly, it does not. Mike is officially happy that the main wall of our bedroom is no longer adorned with two, rough blotches of blue paint (as it has been for the past 18 months). Yep, I said 18. It appears I debated paint choices that varied by .000000000001% color difference, bought two gallons of chosen paint....and then got bored.

Lately, I've fallen in love with "Jersey Shore". Holy hell, that's a train wreck. A totally awesome, greasy, tight-tee, train wreck. And I am super curious to know what Schnookie or Schnickers or Snickums would look like if she wasn't orange, as she is seriously reminiscent of an oompa-loompah and it makes me want candy, every time.

I am also officially signed up for the St. Louis half marathon. Which means, I've been running lately, and you know what? I REALLY hate running.

Here's to the start of a new week and new adventures...

Your Jersey Shore commentary has me rolling... she DOES Look like an oompa-loompa!

I despise running. In fact, I resolve to do it only when being chased.

I have also recently gotten into Jersey Shore. Why? WHY??

L is so cute, and I applaud you for having the patience and noise tolerance to allow roller-blading in the house.

First, I am a huge Buble fan, so much so that my 2 year old can recognize any of his songs when the come up on the ipod and responds with "oh momma, Micheal Buble is DREAMY!!"

Second, I wish I could drink milk with my roller skates on.

Third, we are painting our dining room and I hate how long it takes. You think, oh its a day project. We are are day 5. The kitchen is next. /dread/

Fourth, I know that if we had cable I would spend half my days watching "Jersey Shore" on my DVR and now I want an everlasting Gobstopper... BAD.

Michael B is totally cool, but I'm all like, almost 57, so whatever.

HGTV has created a syndrome that makes EVERYTHING look easy. Paint, easy! Caulk, easy! Tile, easy! Install a swimming pool with a classy deck, easy! It's kind of evil, don't you think?
