More reviews and an Update…

August 21, 2008

First, the update. It sucks. All of it.
We did find a nice house to rent, so that is one HUGE stress to stop worrying about.
But the packing. Stressing over this house. And the packing?! I know there are so many out there with a lot worse problems than a husband who has just found his dream job and needs his family to move 2 states away so he can enjoy that dream job?
But right now, it is so giving me grief. (Good thing I don’t have time to pee, much less think on it, or I’d be a complete boobing mess!)

PS.

Saag Paneer

This is Saag Paneer. My FAVORITE Indian dish. I think the Paneer is about the homemade cheese and the Saag is about the spinach. But I am all about eating this with rice and garlic Naan. It’s what we ate last night. Take out. Don’t let the green sway you…it’s YUMMY. We are about to embark on a week long take out tour, cuz tonight is the official pack up the kitchen night!

Okay quick reviews today, sorry they are short, I swear it’s not that I don’t love these ladies. Cuz. I do.

Don Mills Diva

Okay– for the longest time I thought this gal’s name was Don. Which is fine of course, so Mills must be her last name? So She’s Don and she’s a Diva? But no. I’m a dunce. Don Mills is the town in Canada where KELLY lives!!! Hello? Duh. And my favorite line of hers comes from her bio: ‘Clinging to the crumbs of my coolness’. Oh I hear you. Well, I wasn’t cool before kids so maybe I don’t hear it… oh, you know what I mean…

I loved these two posts. One right after Blogher (I guess there was some hullabaloo over Mommy Blogging not being real?–I wasn’t there, so maybe I’M not real?). And this one just about writing and blogging and the whole privacy thing. It’s true. How do you figure that stuff out? Did you notice the part where she mentions like it’s nothing that she’s a float plane pilot like it’s nothing? Go ahead, she’s a real writer, so you (ahem, I) might learn something! I like this one too…Ducks, Float Plane, Cute Kid!


Bloggety Blog Blog

This one calls herself Saucy. And I believe her. She calls her husband Veto for heck’s sake! And I’m pretty sure I found her through Today’s Creative Blog. Which means…yup. She’s creative! You should see her kitchen re-do on a house they affectionately call the ‘flip house‘. (Scroll down to the amazing kitchen transformation!). But I still think her own laundry room wins. I asked her if she was Mormon with a laundry room like that? She said, no. She’s a JAP. Jewish American Princess. So there. And to prove my questioning… here’s a terrific Diaper Cake Tutorial? See, she could be Mormon? Just sayin’.


A Real Anti-Supermom

Oh the good blog titles! Are you keeping track? I’m serious I may be giving away a prize at the end of this and make all of you vote for the best blog title. So be ready.

Beth is pretty funny and makes it easy to find good posts to share…Thursday’s post is funny, and don’t we all love it when the kids share more information than they should? My 4 year old kept telling people that he had a little brother, and everyone kept asking me if I was pregnant or something! Ha! NOT. And here she is doing a good deed in the form of a PSA. (Um…boobs or not, it was worth it?) Lastly this is one of her posts that I totally understand…. I want to be an Anti-Supermom too.


It All Started At Kent State

Hmmm. I just realized I do not know the why behind her blog title? Laurie must have met her husband there right? I mean cuz there are a lot of other things that started at Kent State…war protests, student riots…? Nah, it’s gotta be the love story thing started there right? I’ll have to ask her… Here’s what I do know. She’s a nurse. She loves the Cleveland Indians. (And Manny Ramirez). She has two cute kids. And I first met her when I read a very touching post about the loss of her twin babies. She’s actually one of the Momo moms I’ve stumbled onto, but the high risk part was devastating for her and her family. Here’s the lines from that post that still reach out to me:

1. Why can some people have twins, triplets, quads, etc. and are able to handle it?
2. Why can other people have twins with siblings and can handle it?
3. Why would God take my babies?
4. What did I do to prove to God that I could not handle it?

Heartbreaking huh?

She’s such a trooper though, and I enjoy reading her blog. Go check out this post about her daughter’s favorite stuffed animal. Very CU-UTE.


That’s all for today. Heck probably the week.

Off to that kitchen junk up. I mean pack up.
