Yes, I can. Dinner that is…

At the salon the other day ( my one splurge during pregnancy, because standing up fighting with my hair, a blow dryer and a flat iron  is uncalled for 9 months along) I was reading a tabloid pub with an article on Michelle Obama. I It got me thinking- I wonder if the president and first lady would like to come to dinner. Does the white house  accept dinner invites from nobody’s? I, as many Americans would love to meet Obama and his family, so I was debating sending him or Michelle a letter. What could happen ?

Dear Mr & Mrs Obama,

Hope you are well.  Wanna come over for dinner? My husband says I make a great turkey meatloaf and mash.

Looking forward to your thoughs.

Best,

Holly

PS: If you have the puppy by then, bring him along- we have 3 terriers and a great big backyard.

I think I need to work on my delivery.  🙂

Lost much?

Its Wednesday. Took me 1.5 hours to get to work today, wasn’t too bad of a ride thanks to NPR. Sitting in our ice cold computer room while Jesse paints the nursery.

I made an Amazon.com purchase today of the Dr. Sears Vaccine book. Say what you will- I am not sure about vaccines for my child. There I said it and I am not apologizing. Looking forward to reading the book. Mighty fast…

This weekend is booked again of course. We have a birthing class ALL day on Saturday at UMASS. i-pose-for-treatsTrying to remain postive about it, but seriously? An all day class? Ugh… this is why I don’t go to school anymore. Ha!

I had planned stuffed peppers for dinner but came home and all the peppers were rotten. SO, I made lemonade from lemons- we didn’t have peppers, we just ate the stuffing with salad. I get to trek to PC after work to return them tomorrow. Oh Joy!

I guess I really don’t have anything good to say, I am all written out- press releases and pitches today. Today was a pitching day for me. Pitch Pitch Pitch. So I have no more words left.

Well, off to spend some time with the pups. They don’t talk, so we should be good.

New Year’s Resolutions…

Happy New Year!

Wow, its been a while. Since Thanksgiving I believe. Nothing really new in my house except the arrival of our child. Yes, I am still pregnant- and that this point, ugh, so over it. I think I was over it before it began!And to top it all off I have a hideous cold, and when I say hideous, I mean I am even more hideous now than before,  9 months pregnant and sick, YUM. Sexy.

We all subscribe ourselves to New Year’s resolutions and usually blow them by MLK Day, but last year I set myself up for success ( don’t think I am perfect, I only was able to do ONE of them!) Last year, I pledged to significantly reduce my consumption of plastic bags in our home. I bought reusable store bags and toted them everywhere I went. It worked! When I go to CVS for toothpaste and what not, if I don’t have a bag, I put it in my purse. If I forget my bags and I am doing a last minute grocery shopping, I challenge myself to load up my purse and cart and bring the items sans bags to the car. Yes, I do get looks of death from the clerks but I always say- ” I saved a plastic tree today,” and smile and usually they do too.

This year- my realistic resoultions consist of:

1) Reducing the usage of paper towels in my home.

Am I crazy? Yes- with the bambino on the way we have been shredding rags and purchasing reusable cloths like mad. We can do it. We have to. Think of the paper towel trees we shall save! We are reserving paper towels use to puppy accidents only.

2) Work to be more positive in all aspects of life.

This one is harder than the paper towels one. Whether its letting the stress of the day go and basking in the little positives of life ( a dogs grin, sunny days or water with ice and lemon) I need to take a step back and mold my life to be more positive. This one is going to take quite a bit of work, but I think that the birth of my son ( can you believe I am having a SON?!  I am still in shock. ) will help me to take a step back and focus on the more important things in life. Accentuate the positive.

I am sticking to two this year. Just two. Good luck to me and good luck to you. I will be sure to keep you updated on the progress.
