Monday Randomness

I wonder how many times I've actually managed to put together a coherent Monday post?

I bet it's less than 30% of the time.

Something about Mondays just makes me feel the need to spew bits of randomness at you.


How about a list?

Lists make everything better.

1. Two of my favorite people are moving back to MN. My bestie Stephanie, and my soon-to-be seester Lyndi!

I am peeing myself I am so happy.

Stephanie is moving from Kansas City, Missouri to the Twin Cities (as soon as she finds a job. Which she will very soon because she is ridiculously smart, driven and organized. So if you know of any HR job openings in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, please let me know and I will send you her resume.)

Lyndi is moving from the Olympic Peninsula of Washington to DULUTH!!! To my couch!!! We are going to be roommates! (Until she finds a house/apartment. But even then I will still force her to hang out with me all the time.) And eventually (unless he wants his ass kicked) my BROTHER will be moving to Duluth too! Which means that I can cook them dinner and watch their dogs and do everything that a big sister should do!

2. I am actually Cal's little sister.

3. I've actually had several people assume that I was Cal's big sister, however.

4. It has nothing to do with wrinkles or age lines.

5. Kempton hurt his leg last night.

He was running around at Steve's shop and came back limping.

Today he can't put any weight on his back left leg.

I couldn't sleep last night because I was so worried about him...losing Kempton is one of my worst nightmares.

That dog means the world to me. He has gone through more with me in the last 8 years than most of my friends and family have gone through with me...and we still manage to love each other!

Even though he humps and leaves dog hair on my pillow and sometimes eats poop...he is still extremely loyal and protective and snuggly and probably the cutest dog that ever lived.


After what happened to Tick, I am scared that Kempton will hurt himself beyond what I could afford to fix...

And then I'd have to put him down.

Makes me sick to my stomach just thinking about it.

So I am going to stop thinking about it, and instead focus on thinking positive that after a few days of R&R, some Rimadyl and extra love from his momma, he will be ok.

6. I want these boots:

Frye "Jane" Tall Leather Boot

In both Redwood and Dark Brown.

And if they had them in Black, I would want those too.

But they are $300 each and I am poor and Steve and I aren't buying Christmas presents for each other this year.

7. Steve and I went and saw the new Harry Potter movie last night.

It was totally rad.

I want to watch it again tonight.

But I'm pretty sure that Steve had enough of my dorkiness to last him for a while.

8. That's all.

9. Have a great Monday!


  1. We saw The Potter on Friday. I thought it was totally rad too except for the whole Harry and Hermione dancing scene and I could have done without the naked kissing scene as well. I must be old. Otherwise, IS IT FRICKING JULY YET? I hate them for putting me through this. We should totally go see it again. Or drink wine. Or both.

    I googled those boots when she posted them too and had to pick my jaw up off the floor when I saw the price. I would love to see the look on Michael's face. Did you get your skinny jeans?

    I hope Kempton feels better soon!

  2. I didn't like the Hermione/Harry dancing BS either. The naked kissing scene was kinda how I imagined it from the book description, only a little more graphic...was it just me or was that definitely NOT a kids movie?

    Let's drink wine at the very least. You could come over tomorrow night? Otherwise I am probably screwed til after Thanksgiving...let me know.

    The sad thing is that if I had $300, I would totally use it to buy a pair of those boots. I love them. I haven't got my skinny jeans yet from Marisa...I need to do that soon. Although that will make me just want to buy the boots even more.

    I hope so too :( poor baby.

  3. Ok, you can't type things like the "big sister" comment...I totally read and re-read it and then re-read it again...the whole time thinking "all this time I thought Cal was older."

    Seriously, I'm like a pineapple brunette on the outside and blonde on the inside...and with that comment right there, the whole world as I knew it was just a tad off kilter.

    I hope Kempton feels better! I think about stuff like that with Birdie all the time. And then my hubby gets all pissy and asks why I would think like that and then reminds me she's JUST a dog...which makes me sad all over again. She's my fur-baby!

  4. Lol - I'm sorry Kendra! I didn't mean to upset the delicate balance of the universe ;) Cal is older, but definitely not wiser...(kidding Calvin!)

    I wish you guys were coming further north for Thanksgiving. I miss you guys! How are things going?

    Kempton is going to the vet this afternoon...he still can't put any weight on his leg. Keep your fingers crossed. And tell Pete that Birdie is more than a dog!

  5. You and Kempton are in my thoughts! We are currently treating a sick dog but I am not going to tell you about it because you said you worry. If you are interested in Daisy's story you can check out my blog...

    The part about eating poop made me laugh out loud. Only a true dog lover would appreiciate that!!

  6. Thanks Kara! I will definitely check out your blog - thanks for posting! Happy Thanksgiving!
