What’s What Wednesday

1.  Washi Tape – I guess I’m late to the game, but I just discovered the stuff.  Truth is, I honestly don’t know what to do with it, just that it may help me to look crafty when I’m not.  I ordered a bunch from Wishy Washy Tape and can’t wait to see it.  I have a project in mind, but I’ll share that if it actually works.

2.  Rockin’ Tunes Giraffe – I used 3 coupons and got it on sale at Target today.  I’m really hoping C will take to it, as I went all out to get it.  Did I mention that it took my husband more than a half hour to put the damn thing together?  Sometimes I wonder about him.  I mean, seriously, 4 screws, man!

3.  I’m itching to get the Halloween decor up.  Last year we didn’t get it up until the weekend before Halloween.  I asked hubby to pull out all the decorations today, but he was so busy putting together a stupid rocking horse that it never happened.  We don’t go insane with the decorations, but we do set up a graveyard out front for the kiddos.

4.  I made bread today, but it fell.  Super disappointing since it took so much time.  My husband thinks it tastes great and is eating it as though it is going out of style.  Sometimes I wonder if he’s humoring me, or if he’ll really eat anything.

5.  I’m loving the cooler weather!  We got a blast of hot weather out of nowhere the last week or so, and a storm that came through on Monday dropped the temps – for now.  And I was the crappy mommy who took her kid out in short sleeves today.  It was like 72 degrees in the house…how was I to know it was only 59 degrees outside?

That’s all for today.  Plan on catching up on New Girl and The Mindy Project tonight.  If FOX doesn’t put it on demand, I guess we’ll be watching Lincoln.

What The Tuck Tuesday

1.  Jackhammering the street in front of my house at 8:30 in the morning = hysterical child.  No, he wasn’t asleep at 8:30, he was having fun playing in his room when the house started to vibrate and the world’s largest noise overtook our senses.  We live under the flight path of one of the busiest airports in the US, and this jackhammer had us going.  This continued for a full hour, as they hammered out a nice hole in the street.  An hour of inconsolableness.  Poor C.

2.  iGoogle’s passing is starting to really concern me.  I mean, what am I going to do for a homepage?  How am I supposed to subtly get my nerd on with the RSS feed from TheOneRing.net?  I discovered igHome, so let’s hope that doesn’t suck.

3.  I had to empty the dishwasher this morning.  Oh, I know…That has to be the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever heard, right?  But since it is one of two things that are my husband’s responsibility around the house, it snarls my day (remember the hysterical child and jackhammering?).

4.  Not watching FOX on Tuesday night really sucks.  My husband is working (for free – thank you government shutdown), and he would want to watch New Girl and The Mindy Project with me, so I’ll wait and we can watch together on demand.
