Can't talk, moving

I'll be away in my little corner of crazytown for the next 10 days or so, packing up my stuff, etc. See you when I see you!

The hardest job I'll ever (but not right now, quite frankly) love

Sometimes I loathe being a mother.

Yep, I said it.

Sometimes I hate being a parent.

Today is one of those very challenging parenting days, where I feel like I'm pulled so thin I am going to SNAP at any moment.

The two hour solid temper tantrum was really enough, thank you.

I was feeling really excited about today (getting packing supplies, etc.) but now all I want to do is scream.


This too shall pass...

...I'm holding my hand out to you...

...and you're walking away...

From Joan Jett's latest album, "Sinner".

I had the pleasure of seeing Joan Jett and the Blackhearts play at the Beloit Riverfest this past Saturday.

They were so fantastic. Joan Jett is amazing, sexy, and can rock like no one's business.

I immediately needed to buy her album (downloaded from her website) this morning, and I've been listening to it constantly whenever I can.

Aside from one dud ballad ("baby blue", which I just can't get into), the album is fantastic.

One of my favourites is "Bad Time" (this post gets it's title from that song), but the album has more than one gem on it.

Highly rec'd.

You can sample the album at her website.

picture post - construction

This is construction on the UW Madison campus. Took these on the way to the Chazen museum last week. They are building an addition to the museum here.
