In which I talk about random things.

1. COME ON, IRENE. You can NOT be serious with this hurricane right now. I mean, really!?! Don't eff with our vacation!

As of late, it looks like OBX will just get hit with rain. And rain? We can handle. What we can't handle is this little cyclone whore holding us back from leaving on Saturday. We dealt with this last year... hold off a bit, mmkay?

2. I'm feeling overwhelmed. And that's probably due to the fact that I have a "to do" list that is a mile long. Both at work and at home. So that's 2 miles long, folks. And that? Is a long damn list. I can barely think straight {hence this blog post.}

3. I don't know how I'm feeling about blogging lately. I usually love it, but recently? It's starting to feel like a job. And that's not how I want it to feel. I want it to be a fun and crazy outlet for me and right now? It's not. I think this vacation is coming at the perfect time. I was thinking about getting some guest bloggers while I'm gone, but that would be just another thing for me to do before vacay, so I don't know. I'm debating.

If you want to guest blog here next week? Email me.

4. I think Toms? Are the most hideous looking things ever. :::ducks:::

5. That earthquake today was pretty scary. That's the first one I've ever experienced. And? You don't see high rises shake like that very often. Note to self: Don't move to CA.

And? I started this post at 8am. It's after 3. Awesome.

Blasphemy! Have you seen Eme's new Tiny TOMS? Surely you have. THEY ARE ADORABLE and theres no denying that. And if you've put on a pair of TOMS you know why the hype. SO comfortable. And one for one? that is awesome.

Hope your vacation isn't ruined---:/

Jenni, the loser that commented in front of me needs to GET A LIFE! And, I too, have had a randomness post sitting on my computer since Sunday night. I'll get to it one day.
Drink Wine and carry on sister!

I love this post. Rant all you want lady. I’m with you with the lists. I have them at work and at home and they make me feel helpless. BLAH! Just think – family, fun, relaxing and wine for the love of God WINE!! ;o) Hope you have a great time on vacation!

jenni said...

@ Audrey- No worries, my friend... I got her. ;)

No joke, when I was reading about the hurricane this morning I thought of you. I really hope it doesn't eff up your trip!

Heather said...

i thought of you and the hurricane this morning as well - ah! i hope it either dies out, holds out or TURNS THE OTHER WAY! Have a great vaca - all will work out :)

molly said...

Wait a minute? There was an earthquake? Ummmm, I guess I need to stop blogging and watch the news once in awhile.

p.s. I am hoping that the hurricane stays away! I want you to have fun on your vacation!

Megan said...

I'm seriously shocked that you hate TOMS! I am in love with them, and have you seen tiny TOMS? So adorable. Added bonus that they do the one-for-one... their organization is amazing.

Mama G said...

I hope your vacation isn't ruined!! And am I totally out of the loop because I have no idea what TOMS are...

torie@twentyfivedesign said...

Shhh, I agree about TOMS. Too square shaped for me. My mom always said she'd rather donate a pair of shoes than buy an ugly pair to donate a pair. lol

Bridget said...

That's funny that you think Toms are ugly. They are growing on me and I think I am going to try on a pair tomorrow, I have heard they are VERY comfortable.

Oh, and I hope your vacation does not get ruined. Good luck!

torie@twentyfivedesign said...

Actually I take back my comment. I only like the TOMS wedges. I think because they are open toed.

Meghann said...

Don't worry about guest posts. We'll miss you but we'll survive. You don't need any more to worry about! Enjoy that vacation and watch out for aftershocks! They can be a bitch! Love from Cali!

Jet's Journey said...

The earthquake today WAS frightening. My first and, hopefully, last!!!

Sarah said...

I say take a blogging break. Have a nice "goodbye for now" post...you're not going to lose readers if you do and if you do...it's their loss. I do like TOMS though. :)

Amanda said...

This may be one of my favorite posts from you. Just sayin...
and
it made me vote!
Take a break mama! You deserve it.

Katy said...

Ok... I stalk you. Never posted a comment. Don't follow... Just stalk. :)
But I had to comment... I too was a TOMS-are-so-ugly-I'd-never-wear-them-if-my-life-depends-on-it... Girl... That is until I put a pair on my feet. Most comfortable shoes ever. Like I'm walking on air. Really. Go to your nearest Nordies and try on a pair.

You can thank me later.

Good luck with OBX. Hope it's beautiful for you.

The Steens said...

I had to google toms - yeah not too sure about them.

I agree with the above poster about taking a break. I love reading your blog, however I also understand the need to step back. Being a mom, having a job, being a wife, and than blogging on top of all that, leaves little time for yourself. Take a break for awhile and see how that helps. Good luck=)
