Portrait of dumb ass...

Spent the last five days fighting a migraine. Tentatively hopeful it's gone for good.

Got ready for work... And whacked my head on the kitchen counter hard enough to make my teeth rattle.

... I'll be taking another pill when I get to work.

Some Days

Some days you just need a hug from your mom.

I'm so lucky to live close to mine.

Tent Twister

We had a lot of fun on our shoot today. 
I was all "I can put this tent away, how hard can it be?"

Ummm... I couldn't get out of the tent.  Once I figured out that this was going to be a fiasco I asked Christy to roll video!

Hubby and I play a game.

Basically, one if us will say something stupid or obvious and the goal is to 1) not laugh and 2) reply (on topic) with something more stupid or obvious.

I only play this game with hubby but today there was an opening and I automatically took it.

Boss: so, we bold the verbs on the objectives page.
Me: I think I was the only one not doing that. I got confused.
Boss: do you know what a verb is?
Me: a person, place or thing
Coworker: that's a NOUN!


So, I totally out-funnied the boss. See how that works? Here is the question... Does my coworker think I'm really stupid or did she out-funny me? Because she's Brills if she out-funnied me.

Today was crazy hair day at school...

Nerd is the Word

I wish every day was nerd day. Caitlin was in a super great mood this morning, so excited to be a nerd.

Which put me in a super good mood too.

Caitlin is working on her costume today. It's super secret and is two costumes in one!

We three Medina girlies had meltdowns today. Caitlin's meltdown was this morning... And it was award winning. Honey's meltdown was this afternoon, it wasn't as flashy as Caitlin's but it lasted longer.

And mine was this evening. I pulled into the driveway, told the girlies to get out of the car and send daddy outside.

"I'm leaving. I'm going to a movie. By myself. Alone. With no one melting down." He said "ok" and slowly backed away from the car. (Just kidding about the last bit.)

I'd heard that Pitch Perfect was funny, and even if it wasn't I love A Capella, so I could at least enjoy the music.

I sat in the first seat on the first row of stadium seating... and watched with growing guilt as mother/tween pairs kept walking into the theater. I felt so selfish.

Oh well. The movie made me laugh, which I needed, and the music was fun, and I had ice cream.

The Perfect Chip

Sad day but for one amazing highlight! Sometimes you have to find joy in the little things.

This is the perfect chip. A Chipotles' lime chip with the perfect sprinkling of salt.

Road Rage

I had six minutes of Cray Cray on the drive home.

My weapon was my phone. I wanted a photo of the a-hole that would not let me merge to the right lane of the 35 service road.

I wasn't supposed to turn left at North Riverside... But I did... And I was gaining on him...

Just as I was close enough to take a photo of the bald man in the cherry red truck... my phone died.

So instead of taking a deadly photo I turned right and headed home.

A satellite view of the Cray Cray cruise...

Angel Prayers

We found a doctor that is going to be able to help us. She's an answer to my prayers. And Caitlin's, this is a worksheet she did in religion class...

Montana, Mississippi, Alabama, Rhode Island

I'll have all 50 states if 4 peeps of peeps will check out my blog. I need Montana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Rhode Island.

Hmmm.... If I were a peep of a Kathleen peep and was kind enough to read one blog post so that CCK (Cray Cary Kathleen) could get all 50 states... I would choose one of these:

Ummm... those are both potty-talk posts... maybe one of these:

Field Trip

We had a really fun team-building field trip today... Pun so intended!

We took a two hour tour of Cowboy Stadium. Now, I'm not really into football but this is a really cool building with lots of unique features. Oh, um, and it's HUGE! ha-shizzle!

If you are a big cowboys fan you should take the guided tour.

The end of the tour takes us out on the field. Half of the field was being torn down from Jones' big 50th anniversary party but we still got to toss the ball around.

Michael can really toss the ball, I suck! AND no one was rolling video when I caught the ball, with my ass on the wrong side of balance and I, gracefully and in slow motion, fell onto my bum. Never let go of the ball though!

Wish hubby had been with me, I think he would have had fun.

Just Because

My wonderful, kind, loving, handsome, funny fantastic hubby sent these to the office. I feel so special!

"Hint taken... Also I love you"

A Sneeze and a Fart...

... a cautionary tale.

I was speaking with my boss this afternoon and felt a big sneeze coming. What I didn't see coming was the very loud fart that accompanied it.


I issued a general "excuse me" and delicately sniffed the air. No odor.

The boss didn't say anything. I'm not sure if he didn't hear it or if he was just being a gentleman.

I was telling my tale to Keith and Stacy, assuming they could empathize and have a chuckle with me.


Apparently neither of them have ever experienced the sneeze/fart combo. I inquired if they had ever experienced the laugh/fart combo? No. Cough/fart? Nope.


They suggested I might try some gas medicine...


Lesson... Don't discuss farts, it only leads to awkwardness.

... I probably shouldn't blog farts either... awkward...

A Subtle Hint


Send me some flowers like these. They were so beautiful I went into the empty office and took a picture.


P.S. No, I don't care if you didn't think of it first. I'm changing the saying to "it's the flowers that count."

The Voice

Ummm... Me and my handsome boy have a new show.

It started as television noise at my last scrapbook retreat with a mild visual interest because of the beautiful Adam Levine... And now I VNR it!

(Don't tell anyone!)

It's been a week of chaos. Everyday I've had the intention of posting... I've made notes, took pictures, and even made videos. But never made it to an actual post. Maybe I'll do a missing week blog.

But for now I'm just putting finger to button and getting back on track.

Here I am as a cute old lady ;)
