Randomly Speaking...

Blogger is making me angry. I know it acts up sometimes, and I'm used to that. But it's been telling me for two whole days that I'm not following any blogs--in the past they have come and gone, but the refresh button fixes all. Then the blogs on the sidebar...Well, titles seem to be appearing and disappearing randomly...

In other news...

I think that I have figured out my greatest source of frustration with the writing process--it's different this time.
See, what I learned, what I tutored, what I focused on, was all research based non-fiction. The writing I learned was all about MLA and APA, correctly citing sources, making bibliographies, etc.
I must say, it's a completely different animal.

Not to seem to focused...

Thursday is our anniversary, and I persuaded my mom to take both the boys for 2 nights. It's a miracle!

They stay tomorrow and the next night. I have no idea what on earth we are going to do. I'm not-so-secretly hoping that Alpha will decide and surprise me lol.

And in the spirit of displaying excessive ADD tendencies...

I am now off to make orange curd to compliment carrot cake, for a birthday tomorrow. There's almost a pound of butter in this recipe...She won't have a heart attack if I don't tell her right?

  1. No and it also will not go directly to her thighs either.

    Have fun on your little vacation from you kiddies. I am sure you will be able to fill the time with some fun exercises.

  3. You are not alone on the blogger thing, I had to find everyone's blogs form either my actual posts, or from other people because for the past week, blogger says I follow no blogs again.. UGH! frustrating!

    Anyways! Enjoy your two kiddo free days! I love mine dearly, but a little mommy time is a great for a recharge! :)

  5. Just an FYI to all, Google Reader is going away at the end of this week, and that could be the cause of the blog following problem. I would import all the blogs you follow into another RSS Feeder. Feedly.com seems the optimal choice.

  9. 2 nights with no kids sounds like heaven to this knackered mum!! In my view carrot cake is practically vegetable and orange curd fruit so definitely no calories there!! Enjoy your child free time x Sarah
