The Week in Review

What a week...Husband has been traveling a lot. I have been pulling single parent duty, let me tell you, it's hard! I have said it before, and I'll say it again...If you are a single parent, my hat is off to ya'.
I took the kiddos to the health club on Thursday. So not easy, I'm carrying The Little Man, Miss Peach is walking, the cat runs out the door. I have to set down Little Man to chase down the cat. Little Man takes off, it's raining. It was just one thing after another. I drop the kiddos at the tot care, and hustle off to my first tennis class in three years! It went OK, I had moments of shear brilliance, and moments of complete disaster on the court. My tennis coach is relentless, we are talking no mercy. I feel like I have been beaten with a bat! It frightens me how out of shape I am:0
I have had absolutely no time to sit down and work Illustrator. I think I'll be able to do that tom. I did however do another self hosted blog this week, Thursday Drive. I really liked this project, I feel like I learned with this one. I finally feel like writing code is coming to me:) If you haven't seen Jennifer's blog yet, go check it out...She is a great writer, great read...Back to me, I cant' wait for the next self hosted project! I've learned so much:) What did you all do last week, it seems a blur to me...
Btw, I'm sitting here watching SNL, and Gnarls Barkley is the musical host. I must be 900 years old, 'cause I have no idea, I am talking no idea who this is! I am 900 years old...

  1. We were watching American Idol Gives Back and I didn't know who HALF the people were (at least the ones under 25). Grrr.

  2. Gnarls Barkley is actualy pretty good. I have their song "Crazy" in heavy rotation on my iTunes playlist at work. Great little song to get something done to. I highly recommend checking it out. Its got an old school kinda sound to it.

    My week in review...I've been sick. Nough said.

  3. I couldn't agree more. I only have 1 kiddo, and I've been a single married mom recently, and I'm exhausted!

    Love what you did over at Thursday Drive! She has a brilliant blog :)

    I have no idea who Gnarls Barkley is either :(

  4. It's rough when there's just one parent at home--my husband travels a lot, too.

    Thank you for the mention, and for your kind words. You gave me a beautiful design for my blog, and I couldn't be happier. (Psst, everyone...hire Nap Warden to design your blog!)

    I have no idea who Gnarls Barkley is either. I would have guessed a basketball player. But I'm old.

    (And thanks, Sandy!)

  7. I'm so out of touch with the music scene, myself. And to a large degree, the technology. I AM 900 years old. I've just discovered tennis and I LOVEEEEEE it. And yes, I'm out of shape too.
    My husband travels alot, so I'm with you on the whole single parent thing. Hats off to them that really do have to do it alone.

  8. I've never heard Gnarls, but I think he is two guys. I can't quite get past the "cash in on Charles Barkley" name.

    I think the Baha (or Baja?) Men did "Who Let the Dogs Out". All of this is from memory, not cheating with Google yet...

  10. I'm a single parent this week. I've been meaning to ask you about self-hosting. I might be leaning that way now. I know. I can't figure out what I want!

  11. I could give a crap about Gnarls Barkley. It's that Ashton I like...

    You did Jennifer's site? I had no idea. Looks FABULOUS. Great work girl!

    And you are so NOT 900 years-old. If you are, you look ridiculously good.

  12. I'm right there with ya - I have no clue anymore. I'll just take my cane and bang on my rocker when I actually know what's going on. Sheesh! I don't see that one happening anytime soon.

  14. ARGH! you and me both sista! (on the bad week front). I think that SNL has really gone down hill. I always tivo with the highest of hopes. You can't beat Amy Pohler at the weekend update desk, though. Gnarles Barkley is sort of a one-hit wonder (if you ask me) they do that "does that make me CRAYYZEE??" song.. that I am SURE you have heard.

  15. I like his one song "Crazy" but I couldn't tell you what else he sings. You did a tremendous job on Jennifer's blog!

  20. Way to go on the tennis lessons! You'll be back in shape in no time, I'm sure. Keep it up! I think I am 900 too. I don't know Gnarls? Barkley either... But I really don't watch any TV.

  21. Who IS Gnarls Barkley? Eeek! I'm 900 years old too!

    Guess I need to do some googling.

    As a mom who's hubby travels, yes it gets hectic. But you've go TWO young kiddos. So you've got twice the hectic-ness I do. My hat is off to YOU!
