miscellany monday

I'm feeling quite random this morning, so I thought I'd play along.

(1) I need to do better about eating breakfast in a timely manner. I wake up hungry, but the kids get up when I do, so it's difficult to feed myself. A brilliant friend of mine recently told me that if it's five hours after you wake up, it's not really breakfast. Thanks, Gini!

(2) I'm dying to do some sewing. There are many projects I'm anxious to start. Another quilt, a skirt for me, a dress for my niece, another mei tai baby carrier or two. . . Maybe today is the day!

(3) The start of the week always gets me excited about the possibilities. I know most people moan about Monday's, but I don't usually. I'm a SAHM, and I love my job!

(4) The hummingbirds have been reckless and abundant around here lately. If I can ever get a decent picture of them, I'll post it.

(5) Typing is significantly more complicated with a baby in your lap "helping."
I know I'm not alone in this observation.

(6) In a town the size of mine, it's always wise to assume when going to Walmart that you will, in fact, run into about half a dozen people that you both know and haven't seen in 8-25 years. It happens. Often. Ask me how I know. Maybe next time, I'll clean up a bit after housecleaning before Wal-marting.

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Have a great week, and don't forget to check out lowercase letters and link up your own random Monday thoughts!



  1. Hi Susan! Thanks so much for following my blog! I with you on #3 - the weekends are still my favorite time since my husband is home, but there's no more Monday morning blues (or Sunday night dread, for that matter!). I don't know that I'll ever want to go back to work full-time again! :) Have a great day!

  2. I'm a new SAHM... and I love it! I honestly think I had more rest when I worked because this is honestly non-stop! But I wouldn't change it for anything in the world!!

  3. Enjoyed your post! Yes, typing while my 2 year old is in my lap is always interesting. He loves to push my space bar over and over. I also agree about Mondays... I really don't want to go through life whining about at least 1/7 of my days... Mondays are a great time to start anew, whatever that might be! Sort of like New Years Day with my resolutions :)

  4. Being a SAHM is exhausting, but so rewarding! I was really optimistic when I posted and about 20 minutes later my three-year-old had a MASSIVE tantrum! Arrrrrg!
    But, as bad as a tantrum is, it is temporary!

    And to Jessica,
    I just checked out your blog for the first time today. We seem to have much in common. I'll be back!

    I love discovering new blogs!

  5. LOL about the Walmart comment....Um we live in a small town too and you are guaranteed when ya hit Walmart you run in to like a dozen peeps ya know and it takes even longer to get out of the store LOL...and I still sometimes go without makeup and a sweatsuit....what am I thinking LOL
