Recovering academic librarian, SAHM, knitter, yarn snob, & walking addict. My world is being overtaken by toys that make noise.
Some people get worked up over the most irrelevant and trite shit.
Word. It must be so exhausting! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Little Nyce#2 is a girl. She's looking healthy and big. Due date 7/4/15.

Exciting! - Anne Bouey
Awesome! - Stephen Mack
Yay! Sisters! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
So this just happened to me:
*grabs popcorn* - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn
went shopping at Target. By the parking lot entrance was an older looking man, probably 45-50, with a gas can, holding a sign that said, "out of gas. Please help." After I parked my car I walked over to him and gave him $20. He was very gracious, explained that he was trying to get back to Fresno and thanked me profusely. As I turned back towards the entrance, this woman stopped her car... more... - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Also, "these people." Lady you're lucky you were stopped where you could block traffic, because I had some thoughts to share with you about your word choice. Are people born this ignorant? - Mary Carmen from iPhone
People like that - those people, in fact (!) - are made. Sad. And good for you. And yeah, karma. - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn
Dunno if you've read one of Jon Carroll's annual Untied Way column, where he advocates a day of personal Untied Way charity: you go to an ATM, take out as many $20s as you can do with it being just a little uncomfortable, and whenever somebody asks for money, you give them a $20. Without worrying about what they're going to do with it. - Walt Crawford
[No, I did not misspell United in the previous comment: This is the Untied Way, not the United Way.] - Walt Crawford
Walt, I have not, but I love it. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I'd rather donate and be "wrong" than not donate and be "right". Intent is all. - Mo Kargas
I make it a point to always donate bus money when asked for it. Most of the time "bus money" is a social fiction but pride is as valuable as any coins. And it reminds me of the "5cent economy" at my sister's school where people would ask friends for five cents and you had to give it unless you really didn't have anything on you, because what kind of selfish tightfisted jerk can't spare a measley 5c? So, same thing, but scaled up to adult salaries and needs. - Deborah Fitchett
Aquaman looks like Rob Zombie.
More Atlantean than Atlantean - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Time to start making up new lyrics to Devil Man, then. - Corinne L
Sometimes it's a bit scary how "5 years ago" me, would not recognize me today. I'm cool with it. I've gained way more than I lost.
The baby wanted tacos. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
so let it be written... - MoTO Boychick Devil
So say we all! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
my mom once told me that i wanted onion rings ALOT during the third trimester. perhaps this is why I STILL WANT ONION RINGS?!? - Big Joe Silence
I don't think it is possible for me to cry then laugh, then laugh then cry, then cry and cry and laugh; any more than I am these days. #hormonal #pregnant
Just about 20 weeks.

Does anyone want any sourdough starter? I seem to be neck deep in it again.
i am proud to say that i've managed to keep the starter you sent me alive! i'm such an adult! ; ) - jambina
Yay! - Mary Carmen
I just won this cabinet at auction and I am in love with it, but I'd like to refinish it to give it new life and go with my furniture. Can anyone recommend any good websites or resources for a novice. Something that has step by step instructions would be awesome. Thank you!

Norm from this old house should be available at your local library. Or any HGTV famous makeover book. Also Home Depot and Lowes has DIY books a plenty (also available at your local library) - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
Watching my daughter dance is so awesome.
Dear SI joint: If you could just slip back into place and hold it together until the chiro tomorrow, I'd greatly appreciate it. Stop making the pregnant lady hurt. Thank you, MC
:-( - Kirsten from Android
Owwww - Stephen Mack
Pregnancy is AWESOME! - Mary Carmen
Thing I just said to myself: I should get up and puke before the baby gets up.
Pregnancy is weird. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
At least you have plans. - Eric - Let Me Know
It's crazy consistent. Now instead puking all day, I wake up, look at the toilet, puke and then go on my way. So odd. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
So it's only Tuesday, eh?
apparently. - ellbeecee from Android
this Tuesday is trying its damndest to be a Monday, too. - ~Courtney F
The Dink says, hi!

Hi! - bentley
such a cutie! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Hi, Mariella! - Jenica
Hello :) - Pete
Hi, sweetie pies - MoTO Boychick Devil
Adorable!! - Harold Cabezas
hello, charmer. - Jenica
I am debating with myself: should I go out in the rain and get the bacon cheeseburger my body is craving?
If you could pick up a taco for me.... thanks. - Yolanda
pics or it didn't happen - Mike Nencetti
Don't they deliver? - April Russo
No one around here delivers a decent burger. Actually our delivery options are pretty slim. We live in the sticks. - Mary Carmen
Lack of decent delivery/carry out options is one of the few things against living in the sticks. - Katie
Baby moving. Baby moving.
Dancing? - Anne Bouey
The one that's still cooking. Feeling more movement. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Yeah, I just figured this baby is getting an early start. :) - Anne Bouey
I may be screaming along with Styx in Raleys.
In today's installment of, "What's Mary craving?" English muffins. All the English muffins. The dink seems to like them, too.
The dink must be served. - MoTO Boychick Devil
She is trying to share hers with the cat. The cat seems unimpressed. - Mary Carmen
yes well, it's a cat, so... - MoTO Boychick Devil
I should send Bob over - he loooooves toast, especially English muffins. - Jennifer Dittrich
What the fuck is Johnny Weir wearing?!?!
18 weeks pregnant.

Which kitty photo bombed you? - Laura from iPhone
Margie. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I think this is the best thing I've seen in a long time. What an easy and simple act of kindness and generosity. I'm sending a donation. If anyone wants in with me, let me know. http://www.npr.org/blogs...
I really think this child is a boy. This pregnancy has been a test of patience, pain tolerance and endurance.
About to spend my late afternoon interviewing nannies. This should be fun.
Is the wind from the east? - bentley
lololol - Mary Carmen
+1 Bentley - Micah from FFHound!
This afternoon my daughter decided that crushing graham crackers into the furniture was a fun idea. In related news, I love my new vacuum.
at least it was something dry? - Big Joe Silence
tell me about your vacuum. I still need one with good attachments for furniture and also to do the stairs. - Laura Norvig
Anyone watch Dr. Phil today? It's the continuation of the Mean Girls episodes. Epic. Parenting. Fail. I have no idea how a child thinks it is okay to punch or smack their parents.
Because they never stopped the kid when they were growing up. - VALZONE#NEWHIP
Apparently we only want to eat strawberries for dinner.
A sign of a finely tuned intelligent appetite, no doubt furthered by superior parenting. :) - Steven Perez
Gave the baby a bath, finished washing her. Turned around for five minutes. She took the biggest dump of her life. I'm tapping out.
Mary, I had both grand kids take steamers in the bath. You got lucky. - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
New Sleater-Kinney: 2 thumbs up.
I'm only halfway through but loving it so far. - Stephen Mack
