Mommy in Grouchland

I'm writing this while Charlotte watches "Elmo in Grouchland." God, I hate this movie. I love Sesame Street, but this is just painful. We've been on a roll watching Disney movies, which is something we both enjoy. But, today she randomly asked for Elmo. Okay, I do have to admit I love Mandy Patinkin's song and dance number. Makes me wish I could see him on Broadway.

I'm getting a hair cut tonight. My hair is all tangly at the bottom because I haven't had it cut in about two years. I might be seeing the new Harry Potter movie tomorrow, so expect a total cop out post, most likely involving a picture of my hair. Calm down. I know you're excited, but take a valium or something.

I'm ready for November to be over. I'm thrilled that doing NaBloPoMo has gotten me out of my blogging funk, but now the pressure to post every day is mostly just cramping my style because I have bigger posts I want to work on, but they will take more time than I can usually muster in one day to complete. Besides that, I get a text from my mother or one of my friends almost every day alerting me to a typo. Though, that happened before November, too. I'm a lousy proofreader. The worst is when I do things like use "affect" when I mean "effect." Because that looks less like a typo and more like I'm dumb. I swear I'm not!

I also have some design plans for the blog. I'm pretty sure I'm moving to Word Press. And, honestly, I wonder who will be left on Blogger. It seems everyone is moving or has moved. Just today my friend, Lex, was pondering it on Twitter. I'm also considering adding a food section. Like, a place to talk recipes and just generally appease my little foodie heart. Thoughts? Chris will have some time off next month, so hopefully I can find the time to make the changes I want.

Okay, Vanessa Williams is on the screen now with her ridiculous, blue wig. I think it might be time to turn this off and feed the kid some breakfast. We have a play date later, and I think everyone would appreciate me to shower before we arrive, as well.

Oh, and good news! I'm not hungover today.


  1. Well, at least we care enough to alert you to typos, lol! We nag, because we care, just like Mommy does, right, Charlotte?

  2. Does Charlotte actually sit still and watch movies.. like for more than 3 seconds? Because if so I'm highly jealous!

    People have stopped correcting my typos etc. They realise I'm operating on about 2 hours of sleep and also, that I just don't freaking care :D There are many many 'teh's and 'jsut's on my blog. For realz.

    Also I get sick of people telling me 'realise' is with a Z, not in my country, yo! ;)

  3. Dude, Wordpress is a pain in the ass, too. Argh.

  4. @Kate- she will watch an entire movie. I don't let her very often, but I have to say, I find the fact that she likes movies AWESOME!

    @Lex- Yeah, that's kind of why I went with Blogger in the first place. I didn't feel like dealing with the hassle of Wordpress. But, I just don't like it anymore. So, I'm going to make Chris help me figure it out.

  5. Yay, Wordpress (I loathe the Blogger commenting system. If I'm commenting and you're on blogger, it's proof positive of how much I love your blog, because DUDE this crap is annoying)!

  6. Oh no, people correct your typos? No fair! Just because you're an English major doesn't mean you have to practice perfection...or at least that's what I tell myself!

  7. @Ginger- well, I appreciate it! And, yeah, the comments is one of the main reasons I want to switch.

    @Perpetua- Well, at least the pepple who do correct me never throw any comments out there about me being an English major1
