#MirthMusicMon – Minions in Pink

25 Apr

This video made me giggle several times last week, so I figured I’d share it with you for Mirth and Music Monday. 🙂

Now that you’ve laughed, get out there and kick this week in the pretty pink posterior.

#MirthMusicMon – Your Post Baby Groove

18 Apr

For this Mirth and Music Monday I found something that struck a chord and gave me a chuckle.

How much of this baby-tastic house do you recognize (or remember being) in your own house? lol

It’s a difficult thing at times to find your inner sexiness after you’ve been mauled by a baby for a year. But, find it we should. You don’t always have to flaunt it, but you need to know it’s still there.

Here’s to our post baby bodies. 😀

And the hope that one of these days I’ll work up the guts to leave my toddling nursling at someone’s house and have dinner out with just my husband.

We’ll see how soon that actually happens. She’s showing symptoms of another cold. (groan)


And just for good measure, here’s a father showing his kid he’s still got it:

#MirthMusicMon – Procrastination 6-5000

10 Apr

This procrastination thing has my life all wrapped up.

It’s around my writing, blogging, social life, housework, even eating my meals, for heaven’s sake!

One of the few things I procrastinated on was getting photos of Kathleen in the Easter dress my mother knitted for her. Win!

One of the few things I didn’t procrastinate on was getting photos of Kathleen in the Easter dress my mother knitted. Win!

So it was nice to come across a video that explains what I’m going through, with a bit of humor.

Now I just need to figure out a way to make self-imposed deadlines more…scary?

Any suggestions?

Seriously, any ideas?

Your input may just get this highly distractable brain into gear.


The music bit was easy. I found something I hadn’t heard in a while; and as you can see it made for an interesting post title. Bonus! lol

Hard to go wrong with Glen Miller.

(Plus, Kathleen did a little boogy while holding onto the table, so you know it’s got a good sound. 😉 )


That’s it for this post.

#MirthMusicMon – The Small Shoemaker

4 Apr

I actually worked for a boot maker for a little while. It was very interesting.

I didn’t really learn anything of the trade, but it’s amazing what can be repaired on a pair of decent shoes. If you really love your shoes but something is coming unstitched, or the tread is gone, see if you can find a shoe repair shop. It’s usually worth it.


It’s been a very long day. We’re all dealing with the tail end of this dratted flu, Kathleen is going through a growth spurt the past couple days, and it seems some of her teeth are on the move. She’s been unhappy and wanting a lot of attention, while wanting to maintain her bit of freedom and moments of distance from me. It’s like playing with a broken yo-yo. It goes out just fine, but you have to manually wind it back up.

I shouldn’t complain too loudly. In 14 years when she’s trying to talk back and nagging us about driver’s ed I’ll look back at these days and wonder why they went by so fast. lol

Oh, well.

That’s it for this week’s Mirth and Music Monday.
