Happy Blogiversary!

I just realized that on the 15th, my little blog has been live for one whole month.

I’ve had a lot of fun with it so far.  I hope that I can keep it up.  I find myself thinking about my daily adventures and how they can translate into a good post.  So far, today, I’ve got nothing.  I’m being entirely domestic.  Grocery shopping is already done, fridge is cleaned out, baby is down for a nap, diapers are in the wash, and baby clothes are almost done in the dryer.  Maybe need to wash some mommy-daddy clothes today too.  I think I’m out of underwear.

I’m sitting in the floor, eating a cup of oatmeal because it’s the first thing I’ve had to eat today.  I got up and rushed to Game Stop to pick up a ‘new release’ game for Brock, and didn’t have time to eat.  Then, when I stopped at Starbucks to get a Vivanno Strawberry Banana smoothie, they didn’t have any bananas.  I asked the lady if she could just make me a strawberry smoothie, and I was duly informed that it wouldn’t be any good, because the consistency wouldn’t be right; it would just be all foamy.  So I said ‘thanks, have a nice day’ and left.  But what I was really thinking is Damn Starbucks always lets me down when I need it the most.

The baby dishes are sitting in the sink waiting to be washed.  My kitchen floor needs to be mopped, and the living room needs to be vacuumed.  Ooops, there goes the dryer.  Better get back to work.

Speaking of work… I have to work a 12 tomorrow.  Such is the life of a stay-at-home-full-time-working mom.

    Oh Mandy, on behalf of Starbucks, I’m sorry!
    I don’t know what that barista was thinking, but I’ve made viannos with no banana, and they’re fine!!! At home, I make plenty of smoothies without bananas and they turn out fine.
    Oh gosh. How embarrassing.
    Next time, you go right ahead and tell them it’ll be fine, just make the darn thing!
    I’d give you a drink on the house if I could.


    • Haha, Shayna… in fairness, it was a Starbucks at Target. They don’t have real people working there, just Target employees. AND she was rude. So I was more than glad to walk out without purchasing anything. My love for Starbucks still remains intact.

  • I read a few days ago that oatmeal is a great food for fighting stress, so you did make a good choice.
