#MirthMusicMon – Dancing Strawhats

25 May

Today’s Mirth and Music Monday has music, dancing, and they make both my daughter and me laugh every time.

Let’s see what you think.

I’m not sure why it makes me laugh, but it does. Slapstick normally turns me off. Perhaps it’s the fact that you can tell they’re too far apart for anyone to really have been smacked? Dunno.

This one is by the same crew, but it has some…bleeps in place of a few words.

This group certainly has some moves. I love it. :)

That’s it for me this week, folks.

#MirthMusicMon – A Kitten and Fever

18 May

rosedandrea:

My 3.75 month old daughter has not been sleeping well the last couple days. As a result my brain is fried and she’s still jumping me through hoops as she fusses at me…Especially, it seems, when I attempt to be productive. Oh, well. :/

It’s that day of the week again.

The one where a small group of bloggers work toward the mutual goal of making you laugh and then listen to some music.

That’s right, Mirth and Music Monday.  :D

This week I came across a video that, yes, is an ad for cat food, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t funny.

Totally unrelated in any context is a song I really like:

Allergy Warning

13 May

I just came across a bottle of chocolate milk with a label that actually says:

Allergy Warning: Contains Milk.

.

Seriously?!

            Seriously?!

.

You’re kidding me, right? It has milk in the title!

Give me a break.

Great. Now I want a Kit-Kat bar.

(Hums “Brake me off a piece of that Kit-Kat bar.”)

#MirthMusicMon – Lindsey says Smell the Flowers

11 May

My first official Mother’s Day is finished.

We didn’t do anything very special this year. I took Kathleen to church, gave my Mom a pretty card and let her hold the baby through the sermon (my Uncle held her through the singing), and the church had a BBQ, then gave all the women snap dragons.

I got two plants, because there were too many left after most everyone else headed home. It’ll be fun to rummage through the house to find a pretty pot and then transplant them.

I can’t wait to see if the seed pods really do look like little brown skulls.

Yes, I am weird. Thanks for noticing. :)

.

On to Mirth and Music!

I’m going to switch it up today with music before mirth.

Because I can. That’s why. :p

Too bad a nice bouquet of flowers costs so much. I would love to buy some occasionally. Alas, it’s not in the budget. :/

But, with my new computer, 3 stories on QuarterReads, a book of poetry on Amazon, and a couple easy (hopefully) to implement money making ideas in the works, we should start heading toward a flowers-because-I-want-them income.

Hopefully.

That’s it for me folks.

#MirthMusicMon – May the 4th!!!

4 May

I think this is the longest my baby has slept with just her dad on the bed. I got up an hour and a half ago to put this post together (had to deal with the dogs and eat a little breakfast first, though) and she is still asleep!

Better hurry before something happens. lol

For this week’s Mirth and Music Monday I decided to celebrate May the 4th (…be with you), aka Star Wars Day!

So without further ado:

Sorry. I totally grew up on the original trilogy of Star Wars, so May the 4th can make me a little giddy. :D

#MirthMusicMon – Chico and Harpo Marx

27 Apr

Today this household waves a not so sad farewell to a broken washing machine. Its replacement is a washer/dryer combo machine. It is smaller, but since we don’t have a cat to barf on our comforter every other week (anymore) we shouldn’t need to use a larger one more than a few times a year.

Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate cats and their wonderful talent (and at times eagerness) to seek out and eliminate vermin. I do not appreciate their need to find the most difficult to clean thing in the room to urp up their excess fur. Hopefully the kid doesn’t feel the need to fill that blessed void. It’s been very nice to have a baby who belches instead of burping up. She will have the occasional burp with friends, but not more than once or twice a day. It was actually a bit entertaining in church yesterday when I sat her up after a mid morning snack and she automatically let out a big burp that was heard by the rows around us. There were more than one pair of shoulders shaking in silent laughter.

Baby Kathleen is growing like a weed and seems to come up with a new consonant or combination of letters every other day. And we can’t tell if she’s going to be an early teether or if she just likes chewing on everything she can get her little hands on.

I’m not sure if I reported this in a previous post, but she was seen by her cardiologist a few weeks ago and he says she won’t need another heart surgery. It’s possible she may choose to have one for her personal comfort, but it shouldn’t be medically necessary. I am still over the moon about that. :)

It feels good to be successful NICU Graduates, but there are times when I wonder how all those families I met are doing. I am Facebook friends with a few of them, and things are going well for them. I just hope it’s the same with all the rest.

OK, enough chatter and idle speculation.

It’s time for Mirth and Music Monday!

#MirthMusicMon – The Break Up Song

20 Apr

I would say this is a good night. My pretty baby is asleep in my lap, I have chocolate chip cookies and trail mix and I just watched half a season of Doc Martin. Life is good.

Tomorrow is going to be fun, though…(Uh, yeah, it’s after midnight, so…) Today is going to be fun. Not. I get the honor of calling 3 hospitals, 2 transport companies, a clinic, a Pediatric Anesthesiologist, and a couple other places that escape memory at the moment to tell them that we nagged enough to get Kathleen’s Medicaid start date retroactive to birth. (Yay!)

It’s a lot easier than earning millions of dollars to pay them ourselves, but I still don’t like dealing with “…for billing, press 4…”

That’s enough of that, though, because it’s time for Mirth and Music Monday!

I don’t know why this song makes me giggle so hard, but it does. :D

Rhett & Link are definitely their own brand of funny.

#MirthMusicMonday – The Muppets…Again?!?

Yes, again.

Because I can. So there.

Mirth and Music Monday’s video is…

Ah, I hear my own little Animal calling for Mama.

Blogging time is over for now. I hope you have a pleasant Monday.

Or, at least that you survive it. ;)

#MirthMusicMon – Chef

6 Apr

I have the flu, and I’m typing one-handed because Kathleen will not sleep unless held (thankfully, she’s only this way about 1/3 the time). So today’s Mirth and Music Monday post will be short and sweet. Or, actually, salty and fishy…

I love that guy, eh, Muppet.

Selling & Social Media–DON’T Be a Personal Space Invader

2 Apr

rosedandrea:

Some great advice from author and social media guru Kristen Lamb. When my new computer arrives I will be implementing more of the advice in her book. A computer that doesn’t have a heart attack at the mere mention of Hootsuite will be so nice. lol

We writers are kinda weird…okay, a LOT weird. We can drift to extremes if we aren’t vigilant. Either we are the non-stop All-Writing-All-The-Time Channel or we’re afraid to mention we have ever read let alone written a book lest we offend anyone. I get it. I struggle, too. We are artists and “selling” feels…ookey.

Yes, ookey is a word.

Marketing feels especially weird in The Digital Age. But why? Also, why is the ROI (Return on Investment) so dismal with traditional marketing tactics? Facebook ads are a notorious waste of money and I doubt the guy who programmed his Twitter to mention his new book five times an hour has seen a massive uptick in sales.

Perhaps death threats, but not sales :D .

I feel that, as we shift from the TV-Industrial complex of the past century and into the Digital Age…
