Tuesday Randomness

Last time on Stumbling Through Life, Amy was dealing with a blow from her eye doctor in terms of aging. Will Amy need bifocals? Will she become the dreaded crazy cat lady? Will any of this ever make sense? Confused, you won’t be on this entry of STL. . .

  • That was a very bad take-off of one of my favorite shows growing up, Soap. Mom, I have some bad news, I am starting to mimic the characters just like dad. . . you have been warned.
  • I made a quick trip up to Nashville for the weekend to visit with friends, eat and kiss on a couple of really cute babies.
  • Lunch with my twin and Mr G was a blast, as usual. Pie Wagon is the place to go for meat and threes. This time I opted for just the veggies and proudly cleaned my plate for them to delight in.
  • My nemesis, Earl, was in fine form that afternoon in the office. Seems he didn’t care for my decorating skills the last time I was there. I was silly stringed as payback.
  • After hugging necks and catching up with everyone it was time for the office to close. My twin and I hit up Crow’s Nest, another wonderful place to go and hang out. Besides all the wonderful happy hour deals they have, the food is great and it is altogether a bar that will make most people in your group happy. There is something for everyone there.
  • Did you know that a baby burp can be very loud and stinky? I kind of knew but E proved it nicely. I also got in the way when he would spit up. Oh well, I can throw it in the wash.
  • Stace, J and I had takeout from August Moon–people, run, do not walk, to this place in Green Hills.   The food is yummy and they have added a buffet at a reasonable price. I will stick to my favorite though.
  • I hit Radnor Lake the next morning with my stinky boyfriend, Shadow. We had a great time, took several breaks but he did need a big rest once we got to the car. I was so worried about him but by the time he had a good rest and a car ride home he was a bit energetic.
  • Then is was off to meet Son’s little girl, E. Oh my goodness, those cheeks! I could nibble on them for days. Stace’s E seemed interested as well.
  • I got a nap in, just a little one. Played with E, hung out with friends and cooked dinner.
  • Sunday morning I helped spread hay over the new area of dirt. It was a great workout and I was soaked with sweat but the itching kind of kicked up a notch. Nothing like working in the yard when you are allergic to most things in the yard!
  • A quick visit to Candy and catching up with her. Man time flies so fast!
  • And then a trip to THE mall, Green Hills. I met up with Jen, whom I haven’t seen since high school. I could gab about her forever but will say this, she is one of the sweetest people I know and it was a wonderful time, especially when hanging in Williams Sonoma!
  • The drive back could have been on auto pilot, I was at least smart enough to head back on a Sunday evening.
  • I have now made up to Wook for being gone.
  • I was inspired to cook, cook, cook on Monday which means I will have food coming out of my ears until the end of next week.
  • I could really go for a week’s vacation of doing nothing at all. Of course my preference would be to go somewhere fab and kick back but then I would also love to hit up DC, just not in this heat.
  • I just finished reading’s Kelly’s latest blog and she was talking about her upcoming 20 year reunion. Mine is next year and I really don’t know what to think about it. Doesn’t seem like it has been that long.
  • And now I will go hit the bed. Or at least try.


What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!
