Weekly Wrap-Up: The Couch Channeling Edition


I know the feeling.

It’s been a big week over here, and I’ve been exhausted from it all this weekend.  Here’s what happened, just in case you didn’t know already.

Monday What To Expect When You’re Blogging:  The Toddler Years

My lil blog turned one.  I look back over how my blog has changed over the year.

Tuesday  Twisted Mixtape Tuesday Bath Tub Time Machine: Back to the 60s

My bathtub can do magical things, including go back in time.  This week we went back to the 1960s to check out the (mostly) folksy music that I enjoy from that era.

Wednesday  Let’s Get Physical (In a Non Olivia Newton John Sort of Way) A shocking look at the world of physical therapy… pun intended.

Thursday  I Could So Be An Inventor  Theme Thursday was all about useful inventions, so I was more than happy to reblog this oldie but goodie.

Friday  June Secret Subject Swap Pt 1-Star Wars: Return of Red Solo (Cups)  I’ve had some pretty great prompts in my time.  This one takes the cake.  The feedback on this post went either one way or the other-it was LOVED, or the person reading it went “HUH???”  Welcome to my warped sense of humor…

not weirdOther Great Stuff This Week

Our Land Series Finding Ninee  I’ve been enjoying this series all along, and I didn’t want to pick just one post that I’ve enjoyed from this, so I sending you to the main page through this link.  This is a series of guest posts that has been organized by Kristi Campbell that focuses on empathy and wonder.  My description cannot do this justice, just please read some of the great contributions thus far!

Enjoy These Moments Cloudy, With A Chance of Wine  I could relate…

A Guide To New Motherhood-As A Introvert  The HerStories Project  This blog is a collaboration of two fabulous bloggers, Stephanie Sprenger of Mommy, For Real and Jessica Smock of School of Smock.  This  post particularly resonated with me being an introvert myself.

farting glitter-Do you?

misbehaving in choir practice-???

Next Week and Into the FUTURE

I’m going to spending some time trying to get some obligations for others done the next few days, therefore I’m not making promises about much!  For sure this week Tuesday I’m cohosting the Humor Me! Blog Hop with Terrye of The Adventures of a Misplaced Alaskan. I’ll also be guesting over at My Skewed View on Wednesday while Jen is out and about. Theme Thursday, brought to you by Something Clever 2.0 deals with your most favorite or least favorite grade this week.  Friday is the second round of The Secret Subject Swap, and FTSF.  The following week is my much anticipated slaughter of one particular book by Jan and Stan Berenstein for the Character Assassination Carousel, brought to you by the lovely and always funny Nicole Leigh Shaw, formerly Ninja Mom.

I hope you all have a great rest of your weekend!  I personally hope mine involves a long nap!

The I’m Older Weekly Wrap-Up

Ever have a week when you're struggling to find funny memes?  This is one of them...

Ever have a week when you’re struggling to find funny memes? This is one of them…

Evil Genius, being the king of finding things on YouTube, found some Mitch Hedburg clips we had never seen before.  One of them made us laugh hysterically:
“Every picture of you is when you were younger.”  That is true!  So I’m a year older but probably not any wiser.  Here’s what happened over at my place this week:

Monday  The Eyes Have It:  The Professor And The Eye Doctor  The Professor had his eye appointment-I might as well have taken Sheldon Cooper.

Tuesday  Is Anyone Listening??? Hello?  Can you hear me?  Yeah, neither can anyone else I live with!

Wednesday  (Not So) Wordless Wednesday:  Birthdays and Blog Love  It’s my birthday, so I share some new (to me) favorite reads.

Thursday  Spring:  A Performance Review Snow in May? For reals?  Spring is in real danger of being terminate.

Friday  FTSF: An Island Life For Me!  I was supposed to imagine what I would want on a desert island.  I was happy to do this, considering it was May and we had several inches of SNOW on the ground.

Do You Wanna Know, Do You Really Wanna Know What I Liked This Week?

On Wednesday when I mentioned some of the things that I’ve been enjoying lately I should have included Mommy Has A Potty Mouth.  Some of the funniest things I have seen in a long time have been in my newsfeed on Facebook thanks to following this one.  Definitely worth a look-real LOL material, just be careful who’s looking when you’re looking!

Photos of Diet Coke withdrawal  Really?  Somebody took pictures???

Will you please stop breathing.  No!

Can you die from caffeine withdrawal/Caffeine withdrawal dead/etc I‘m really thinking this was a sleep deprived week in the US?

Next week

I’m afraid to tell you anything because every time I say I’m going to do something (like my book review), life intervenes and I DON’T get it done!  Buuuuut, this stuff has to happen-Tomorrow (Sunday) I will be at Mommy Writings: Daughter of Maat participating in her monthly series on WAHMs, which has NOTHING to do with George Michael or whack-a-mole.  Monday read me at The Epistolarians, where I share my story of having an ADD child who is not medicated.  It’s also The Princess’s birthday-which I am sure I will provide more tales of cake making woe to share later in the week. Theme Thursday is all about good samaritans, which I hope to actually write a post for this week instead of telling off the weather.  And don’t forget that Friday is the first round of the Secret Subject Swap for May!

Have a great week!

Helloooooo February! Week In Review

Help me Obi Wan Groundhog, you're my only hope!

Help me Obi Wan Groundhog, you’re my only hope!

The groundhog didn’t see his shadow this past weekend.  This is good news to me, though I still wonder why our country seems so dependent on a rodent to forecast the weather…  I understand folks on the East Coast are really hoping he’s correct.  I think they found Nemo, or Nemo found them.

Stuff I did this week, besides taking on a long term sub job:

Monday  This is Your Body on Stress:  Insane in the Brain  My body lashes out and tries to kill me.

Tuesday  My Life of Crime: Subliminal Criminal  Instead of getting to jump right into work like I wanted to I had to wait-my background check revealed I might be a criminal.  Too bad I didn’t know this, I could have been shoplifting this whole time.

Wednesday  Almost Wordless Wednesday:  BRAT  Some dogs are just not very smart.  MY pooch is one of them.

Thursday  Theme Thursday:  SHOW ME THE CANDY!  Valentine’s Day-my kids already know what it’s all about.
I also had my first post featured on The Epistolarians.  I’m very excited to be a part of this group of women!

Friday  February Secret Subject Swap Take 2:  Public Humiliation-I Pee Therefore I Am  Because pee happens.  Sometimes bad things happen when you pee, and I’m not talking about itching and burning.

And for those of you that were wondering about my criminal past:

I AM NOT A CROOK!  As it turns out, there must have been some glitch.  The fax came and there was no record found.  Too bad the paperwork sat on a desk for almost a week.

Work is going pretty well now that I am exonerated.  This blog?  Unfortunately it’s losing views due to the fact that I can’t post updates during the day, or something.  Please check in on me and keep reading.  And you can still vote in the Circle of Moms contest up through 4 pm Wednesday-the last time I looked I was up to #99.  I never cared about getting into the Top 25, but I did want to get in the Top 100.  Thanks to everyone who has voted for me!

I’ve got some awards and a funny sort of q and a thing that I need to share coming up, and Friday is the next round of Fly on the Wall.  Hope to see you all next week!
