The Crew In Review: A Whole Week of Stories, Part One

Standard

This week has seemed to fly by, which wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t feel like we were all just caught up in a whirlwind of events and craziness. And now that it’s slowly starting to settle down, I finally have a chance to take a deep breath and review what all happened. Lucky for you guy, right?

This past Saturday, Zoey had her third swimming lesson and it was anything but stellar. She was all about the kick boards this time, still on the fence about the pool noodles and she didn’t understand why they just couldn’t play ring around the rosy over and over again while in the pool (there is a portion of the lesson where they sing songs while bouncing around in a circle in the water). And even that much could have been enough to handle if she hadn’t also decided in the past week to test all boundaries LIKE A BOSS and start throwing multiple tantrums IN THE MIDDLE OF THE POOL AT THE YWCA OMG. We’re talking a wriggling toddler, who is also screaming (her other new thing that we’re trying to nip in the bud), and complaining that she wants to sing ring around the rosy NOW.

Seriously.

Seven Nights on the Couch

Standard

I’ve spent the past seven nights attempting to sleep on the couch–not because Greg and I are fighting or anything like that–I’ve just been having such bad coughing fits during the night that I’ve worried about waking him up. So, I’ve ended up on the couch with reruns of The Real Housewives of New Jersey playing at very low volume on the TV. Sometimes I was able to sleep for short spurts, but mostly I spent the time sucking on cough drops and mentally debating about the latest RHONJ feud. Read the rest of this entry

Dear Mother Nature,

Standard

Please make up your mind. Should it be sunny and warm, as it was yesterday? Or should it be snowing to pretty much white-out conditions as it was a little while ago today? It’s confusing to have all kinds of weather over the span of two days. We at The Preble Road Crew do not care for your theatrics and ask that you please simmer down now.

Sincerely,

Cindy

My Favorite Spam Comment EVER

Standard

I just got this spam comment and I had to share it because it made me giggle. I’m not sure if this person has confidence in me or not…

I don’t even know the way I ended up here, however I believed this submit used to be good. I do not recognize who you are however definitely you’re going to a famous blogger when you aren’t already. Cheers!

Cheers to you too, Spammer. Cheers to you too.

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

This is the Kardashian’s Christmas card: The Kardashian-Jenner family glam up for their 2011 Christmas card. The card was also shot in 3D.

Frankly, I think our cards are a TON cuter:

 
Merry Little Stripes Christmas Card
 
 
Candy Pattern Holiday Card

Dear Zoey’s Tooth,

Standard

This is my plea: Please, please, please just pop through and let my poor baby feel better. The low-grade fevers, the crankiness, the insomnia–I can’t take watching her suffer too much longer.  And frankly, I WANT A FULL-NIGHT’S SLEEP AGAIN. It’s been at least four nights since Zoey slept with no problem–in her own bed. Greg and I would really, really, really like to get back to that. So please, pop through and let us all go back to sleep.

Love,

Cindy
