I hit the mail jackpot

Last Thursday was such a good mail day I've decided to blog about it.

I got a SECOND June Birchbox. The stuff was exactly the same but that's ok because I liked most of it.

I also got a $4.35 refund check or a free grande, extra hot mocha (whichever way you want to look at it) from Navient (for my student loans). Something about not communicating their late fee policy so they were issuing a refund (I'm guessing everyone got it because it's hard to be late on a payment when you are auto withdrawn.)

And then I got my contacts rebate check.

I was #winning.

And now you can get on with your more interesting than this blog post day.

Weather Update

As follow up to Wednesday's post.... 

It's still raining here. 

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

None of this is blog worthy (not that anything I post ever is), but it's been a week...

It's been raining here since June 2008.  We're really getting good use out of that pool membership.

In other news GMac has contracted a cold. I expect the rest of us to get it in the next 2-3 weeks.

We spent the weekend in Southern Illinois, specifically the home of Popeye and Olive Oil. It was great to see family. However, now every time we go anywhere, GMac flips his lid because he thinks he'll be in his seat for the next ten hours.

GMac is also "scooching." I use that term very loosely as I'm not sure what he does is called.  He puts his head on the floor to lift up his butt (into a triangle of sorts) and then brings his legs under him). I think he'll be crawling sooner than later.

Monkey is constantly asking to "talk about potty training."  She's all talk and no game.  Come mid-July (the first strand of weekends we are home), we will be talking about potty training daily.

My new guilty obsession t.v. show is Baby Daddy. Apparently I never outgrew my teenage years.

I'm the proud new owner of an adult coloring book (not what it sounds like). I'm sorta wishing I got this one. C makes fun of me for it, so he isn't getting a picture for his office. I'm really looking forward to breaking out my new colored pencils, just as soon as I have at least 5 minutes of baby/child free time.

Our house needs a cleaning overhaul (but whose doesn't?).

I've got nothing else of no importance.

Adios Amigos (that's three years of espanol right there).

Have I ever identified myself as "Lisa"?

I'm asking for your help today. Not sure I'll get any feedback, but I'm asking anyway.

Here goes...

Have I ever talked to you and referred to myself as "Lisa"?

I used to answer the phone at my old job with, "Blah Blah Blah's Office, this is Rachel."

And I'd some times get "Hi, Lisa, this is Harry Larry" or "Hi, Lisa, this is Silly Sally" or "Hi Lisa, may I speak with Rachel?"

I thought maybe it was because of the name of the office I worked for.

BUT then today I ordered my lunch to go.

Me: "I'd like to place an order for pick up."
Lady on the phone: "Can I get your name?"
Me: "Rachel"

I get there and my order is under Lisa.

So now I'm seriously wondering if I have a second personality.  I'm serious, guys. I'm worried.  I'm doubting everything I've ever said.

Is there a Lisa inside of me? A Lisa that comes out only when I'm on the phone?

Veggie Pizza Party at My House

Sunday night I made a rather large veggie pizza to serve as my lunch for the week. Full of yummy veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, peas, and cheese.

I had a few pieces Monday for lunch and had a rather unsettled baby Monday night.

It's crazy that I can enjoy a class of wine, but I can't enjoy certain vegetables as they make my baby gassy and unsettled.

So I have two-thirds of a veggie pizza sitting in my fridge.  Who wants to come over?

In other news, I had another mocha today. HELP.

Mocha Update

My abstinence* from the delicious beverage did not last.

This morning I got a mocha.

I held out as long as I could, but it's just been an off week.

Yes, I realize it's only Tuesday and yes, I realize I got a mocha at 7:56 Tuesday morning.

*I googled the use of the word "abstinence" in this case and it is acceptable.

Something Happened to Me Yesterday

Happy Monday!


I'm going mocha free this week. I apologize for anything mean I might say.

I can quit them whenever I want. Seriously.

I can't quit Coke (the pop) whenever I want. Seriously.

Anyways, here's a brief rundown of our weekend.

Food: Cheeseburgers, Sushi at Fusian (ohmygosh.), Five Guys, concert food, Starbucks.

Kevin Love and his beard announced that they are staying in Cleveland next year. Hallelujah! 

I just spelled "hallelujah" correctly on the first try. Amen.

Rachel (that's me) went to see The Stones.  You can read all about it here. I suggest you start at the bottom and work your way up.

Monkey still has no desire to potty train (we didn't try this weekend, just talked about it). She now doesn't even mind not being able to go to school. "All of her friends will be so sad," but she still doesn't care. Yes, she is already referring to the kids in her class as her friends.

We went to the park and fed the 5 ducks that were there.  Monkey sprinted towards them with her bread and couldn't figure out why they didn't want to eat the bread out of her hands.

Monkey had a melt down at Krogers. (Just keeping it real.)
