a song plus some randoms.

Thursday, October 28, 2010


I think if I was going to be a pro singer, I'd like to sound like Frou Frou.  On second thought, I change that on a daily basis (it's been Sarah McLachlan before... the girl from Lady Antebellum...) so for today, it's Frou Frou anyway.

I am sick of the morning routine with my youngest.  She falls apart when she can't find something, and dissolves to tears almost immediately.  She doesn't look for what's missing so much as she finds everyone in the house to ask if they've seen it.  Top all it off with the fact that she's really disorganized and you've got yourself an ugly situation.  It's not fun.

I'm ready for Christmas vacation.  Mostly so I can have my husband back.  His new wife is called School and she's not nearly as cool as I am.

It's like 70 degrees here in Massachusetts and I don't know what to do with this weather right now.

I'm ready to go back to Italy.

I have a hard time opening the internet every morning to my homepage of BBC and reading the headlines.  Today's headlines: Hundreds still missing after the tsunami.  I have a hard time with these things and, inevitably, my faith.  Maybe I'll write about it some time.  A serious post?  Who'd have thunk it?

There are some of you that I'd really like to meet, for real, not just through a computer screen.

We just got into Modern Family and I'm so glad we did.  I'm caught up to Season 2 now but think I should get Season 1 on Netflix.  It's hilarious.  I know most of you already knew that but I was behind the eight-ball on this one.  It's my new favorite show.  

Have a good Thursday!

  4. Yeah, I think we all wonder why in the world God lets stuff like that tsunami happen. I think that's normal. But then I remember we live in a world full of chaos and sin, and stuff like that will just happen. We won't know why. But it is hard though to trust that God has a reason when we can't exactly know what it is. Praying for you!

  5. Morning Bridget! Enjoyed the randomness today! Wow, 70 in Massachusets? That's like TX weather! And hang in there re: absence of husband. I KNOW that's gotta be hard for you. Mine is a little MIA lately too. He randomly decided he wants to go to law school, so he's studying like crazy for the Lsat THIS December. But anyway, your bloggy friends will try and keep you company!

    Have a lovely day, pretty one!

  6. i love your random thoughts! it's very disheartening to read and watch the news ... there's so much sadness in this world. i've always battled with trying to be informed but having a balance - because so much sad, negative input is clearly not good. but, who wants to be ignorant? on second thought... ah, i agree, this weather is crazy! on my drive xcountry, it was like 50 degrees in arizona and now this. i mean, i'll take it, just strange! we should hang out sometime... i think we'd have fun ... and maybe get into some trouble! :)

  10. Oh lady. A random girl after my own heart. I feel like all my blog posts should be random, cause that's just how my brain works! Modern Family= pure awesome. We have not missed a show YET. And you SHOULD write a serious post. I think we all should once in a while.

  14. Frou Frou is a nice choice, it's 87 degrees here in Florida (help!), I would most definitely read your serious post, and I love Modern Family more than I'd like to admit. It's so great! Oh, and I love random posts, they're the best kind, in my opinion. :)

  15. Yes you must rent season 1 of Modern family, you will love it!

  16. miss lovely, your randoms are perfect. and you're doing an amazing job at being such a sweet mummy. what a blessing you have brought to your very own family, and even when your patience is running thin, remember there's always hot coffee and gummy bears you can buy at the store and a new hair clip you can put in your hair and a husband that will always want to kiss you.

    fear not, you're amazing, and you're good and holy and everything righteous. xoxo

    oh and ps:: modern family is synonymous with over the top, hold your belly as it jiggles hilarity.

  19. We love modern family and the middle. So so funny!

    Sorry about your 'singleness' these days. I have a busy over-working husband too that is overly stressing...and I also have a little one that falls apart every morning. I feel your pain.

  20. I LOVE Frou Frou ! You should definitely check out Imogen Heap's albums (she's Frou Frou's singer). I love her !! I saw her in concert back in '06 and she is amazing on stage (and off) :)

  21. I wish I were in Italy right now, too. And for the record, I'd like to read a faith based post from you. I think I'm the only person that hasn't watched Modern Family yet.

  22. nothing like a good vent through the internet, right?! while I'm not a mom of four at our age, I can understand part of your frustration. and yes, I would love to meet so many bloggers in person. and hey, we aren't to far from each other. well beside the fact that I don't have a car so can't leave the City. but still. East coast, right?

  23. i do love some Modern Family. funny stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I swear, I'm like the only person who still hasn't seen Modern Family. I keep meaning to, but never find the time!

  25. I understand how you feel about the news. I feel so callous when I think, "I just don't want to read it anymore." but it's so hard to pore over all the craziness in the world everyday ;~;

    But you've been to Italy?! Jealous! I plan to go in about a year if everything works out haha.

    ...and then the rest's history.

    P.S. Imogen Heap (the girl in Frou Frou) is in my top three...I've seen her twice now in concert. Add it to your bucket list.
