Mary Carmen

Recovering academic librarian, SAHM, knitter, yarn snob, & walking addict. My world is being overtaken by toys that make noise.
Wednesday, la la la la.
Can't trust that day... - Hedgehog
Rapidly approaching the "fuck it, shit is just being swept into boxes" stage of packing.
there are worse places to be. - Jenica
yes, I am not at the "let's set it all on fire" stage yet. - Mary Carmen
exactly. - Jenica
There is too much errand running associated with moving.
Major moving stuff and unpacking happening. This is a great thing as this means it will now not happen all at once. Kitchen almost completely set up. My closet is done. Getting bathroom done.
Baby's closet unpacked. The men are setting up their nerd cave. Furniture gets moved Saturday. I start shopping next week for a dining set for the EIK and for new couches and other odds and ends. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
As much as I despise moving, this move has been the best so far. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Forced FF hiatus. Can't post, comment or like without it being a total assache.
Ugh, I am so sorry - I hope whatever is causing that clears out soon. - Jennifer Dittrich
I'm sorry, MC. I hope everything else is going well. - John (bird whisperer)
Oh good, I can only post to FF from my iPhone. Really not making this easy for me.
Yikes, what the heck. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
FF is behaving wonky as FUCK for me lately. Seriously curbing my desire to use it.
Nooo!!! don't go away. what's it doing weird? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Same here. - joey
So much to do. So much to do. So much to do.
Breathe, regroup and plan your attack. You're phenomenally efficient. You've got this, Wonder Woman. Xo - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
JFC. *smh*
How's it going over there? Sorry I haven't been able to help pack. =( - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Things are going great. Almost finished. Moved a lot over already. Kitchen unpacked. I love the space! - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Yay! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Always remember how small a world it truly is.
I hate to beat a dead horse, but seriously, how did I do this while I was 7 months pregnant? I packed for a couple of hours this afternoon and I feel like a truck ran over me.
Mariella helped by not helping? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Why were you beating a dead horse 7 months ago and if it was dead already then why are you beating it again now if you hate doing it? There has to be a better exercise plan. - Steve C Team Marina
Must have been some kind of intense nesting instinct! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
For me, when each of my kids was M's age, I thought that was a totally exhausting phase -- paying constant attention, not great sleep, growth spurts, etc. It was very hard to get anything done. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Now that Mariella is mobile, I find myself saying lots of things I never thought I would say. A small sample:
"Take the wire out of your mouth!" - Mary Carmen
"We do not eat cat food." - Mary Carmen
"Please don't empty the water bowl." - Mary Carmen
"Leave the cat alone." - Mary Carmen
"Can you get out of there by yourself?" - Mary Carmen
"Stay away from the oven!" - Mary Carmen
"Don't chew on my shoe, it's dirty!" - Mary Carmen
"Where did you come from?" - Mary Carmen
"Yes, you spit up. Please stop sitting in it." - Mary Carmen
"You can't have that." - Mary Carmen
I think this answers your previous question. - Christa
"You can't have that." - Mary Carmen
"You can't have that." - Mary Carmen
I think you're right, Christa! - Mary Carmen
Damn kids. :) - Christa
It is pretty adorable when I call her name and tell her to come over to me and she does. - Mary Carmen
"WHEN I'M MOBILE! BEEP BEEP!" - Big Joe Silence
Doing the house walkthrough today and getting the keys. We can begin moving in by Friday. AMEN!
It smells fucking delicious in my house right now.
I just spent 2 hours in Babies R Us. How does that even happen?
I can't imagine, unless I sit down and doze off. :) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
because things. you know. - Big Joe Silence
I have no idea how I did this when I was 7 months pregnant. I am already so over packing and wanna just nap.
I was so impressed that you did all that pregnant. Now you know why! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Totally. - Mary Carmen
Your in-laws provided greater motivation. - Holly's favorite Anna from Android
Very interesting photo set. One of my beefs with projects like this is that I rarely see anyone with my body type, (the imagery of overweight seems to stop at the line between overweight and obesity, which could be the difference between a size 16 and a size 22 (not every obese person weighs 500+ pounds)) however, the two images of the overweight...
women actually remind me of me. Interesting to see it. - Mary Carmen
Packing and baking. Baking and packing.
Sentence I just said to my child: "Find your nappy place."
Topping the list of awesome things that happened in NY, M finally got on a twice a day nap schedule. I owe a debt of thanks to my mom. - Mary Carmen
blessed naptyme! - Big Joe Silence
I think my Give a Fuck finally got up and left.
Let the packing frenzy begin!
Are you home now? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Got home last night. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Feeling like the fattest fat who ever fatted.
*fist bump, MC!* - LB sad.
I think your autocorrect changed them from "phat" - Johnny from iPhone
Is that good or bad? Because if it's bad, I might have to smack you for using that kind of language about my friend. - Holly's favorite Anna
Yeah! What she ^^^ said!!! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
No phat is definitely good. At least where I come from. - MoTO: Team Marina
"Phat is good, in the same way as 'bad' and 'sick' can be," said Pete , Professor of Those Dang Kids Studies at the University of Cod Liver Oil-Get Off My Lawn - Pete : Team Marina
I think Anna was talking to me. And no, I don't feel the good version of phat. Only the bad. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
ETA that my comment was one of solidarity for having those feelings myself, not to say you are any kind of fat. But you are certainly phat. *hugs* - LB sad. from Android
Aw, MC, *hugs* - Anne Bouey
Here's the deal with me:
I'm a hyper, happy, always look on the bright side, workaholic, who loves to laugh, have a fun time, drink snooty Belgian beer, and knows dick about wine. I swear like a sailor on shore leave and have a thick NYC accent. I could eat pizza or a bacon cheeseburger every day and be quite happy. I will always think my ass and hips and thighs are too big and will perpetually be "on a diet." I like being silly before I fall asleep and first thing when I wake. I am mostly nocturnal and do enjoy sleeping in very late on Sundays. I love football and hockey. I'm addicted to yarn and often come home with it. I will cry any time I see a stray cat or dog and I get very grouchy when I'm hungry or tired. I hate talking on the phone, but love getting/sending text messages. I think the Who and the Kinks are the best bands ever and that the Rolling Stones are overrated. I will go to every record store in NYC to hunt down that Sweet Things 7 inch on vinyl and will listen to the same record over and over... more... - Mary Carmen
OK. :) - Steven Perez
No reason to give up who you are. - John (bird whisperer)
I know someone will find all this just may take 30 years to find him. ;-) - Mary Carmen
That much effort deserves attention. Most don't put so much work into putting themselves out there. You will do well with what you have written. - Julian
PREACH IT. Also, lurv for you. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
*crushes on MC* - Ayşe E.
And now I have a total girlcrush. :D - Hookuh Tinypants

Funny, I snoot Beer at Belgians that drink. That and I am only slightly envious of the recored collection Pictured. - Brent - Yes I am
Great info - hadn't seen it before now! - Paulette
And now I completely understand why we were insta-friends. *MWAH MA BELLE* - jambina from iPhone
WRONG! (about the 30 years :) - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I think I will now go and cry based on Micah's comment. Happy tears! - Georgia

I just read this again 5 years later and am smiling at what has changed, what has not changed and what will never change. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!
My child is actually napping. Its a miracle.
Life is never, ever dull in Nyce World.
She has started to reach for me when she wants me to hold her. My heart melted.
Awww.... - Laura

My father has become that old Italian man who walks his dog in front of the house, waters his lawn with the hose and knows everybody's business
We usually start during young age;) he's definitely pretty late - Monaca di V.le Monza from BuddyFeed
I must be Italian - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
