One-On-One Time

I worked from home yesterday because of a grumbly in my tumbly and hubs came home around noon because he didn't have any lessons. The little man was at preschool and we were both sitting downstairs watching TV and the house seemed so quiet.

Hubs gets up at 5:30 every morning and basically goes to bed when the little guy does, so we don't get a lot of one-on-one time. We have to plan dates and focus on spending quality time together - and sometimes it will be months before we get away together for a couple of hours. I always look forward to our dates and we have a great time, but we still rush back home and through the door to see our little man.

Today, he said, "It seems so weird being in the house and him not being here, you know?"

I said, "Yep, but at the same time, it's nice to have some us time, you know?"

Then I crawled into his lap and we snuggled and watched Law and Order together. It was good one-on-one time, you know?



  1. our son is just 8 months
    old and we aren't ready
    to have alone time yet :)

    he has been sleeping in
    his own bed in his room
    since he was 8 weeks so
    our love life isn't suffering.

    haha we miss him when he
    sleeps and the rest of that
    cliche, cheesy stuff.

  2. cute picture. and though I can't relate because hubby and I have no kids yet. I can completely understand how it would be hard to get away but still feel weird without baby boy there.

  3. I love having special unexpected one-on-one time with my hubs, too. One time Macy went on vacation with my parents for a whole weekend and we were beside ourselves cause we had no idea what to do! LOL. Hope your having a great day! = )

  4. How do you get your pictures so big????

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
