Will blog for food

Since I'm still up and awake at one in the morning, I'm totally going to pretend that I didn't miss a day of my self-proclaimed daily blogging thing...

This is totally acceptable because days don't officially end until one goes to sleep.

That being said, this will probably make little to no sense because, HELLO ONE AM.


Except myself. Because one can always talk about one's self on a blog because blogging = narcissistic art form. (At least the way I do it.)

(Does anyone else get annoyed over how hard it is to emphasize single character words? Like I. Because three sentences ago, it was supposed to be snarky and all, 'at least the way I do it.' except that my typical go-to-emphasis-move is called caps lock and it's already in effect and like I'm going to take the time to italicize or bold it... then you might care what I think, and we could never let that happen.) 

(Though the fact that there is not an easy way to emphasize I still aggravates me...)

(check out that emphasis up there.)

Oh, and HEY, did I ever tell you the time that the DadGuy decided to go back to school? It's a good one. It goes something like this...

"Hey, I'm registered for a class."

"Awesome. You got in?" (because I'm nice and know that he had applied.)

"Well, no. My GMAT was too old, so I'm taking another class so I can get ready to take the test. And then I have to pay to take the test again too..."

"So. You're paying to take classes that MIGHT get you in to grad school."


"How much does that cost?"

"Uh, don't spend any more money... You're not going anywhere today are you?"

And thus it begins....

I ♥ being a student.

P.S. Donations being accepted.


  1. lol dont you just love men! lol

  2. "back to school. back to school."

    ala Billy Madison :)

    (watch it here)

  3. 1 AM is the ONLY time for good blog posts.

    And the whole "don't buy anything, you're not going anywhere today" thing? That's my husband's very strongly endorsed motto. (And he's not even a student.)

  4. I heard the, "Don't spend any money today...we've got nothing in the bank until Friday." earlier this know, like yesterday...

    That is when I start craving something that is not in the pantry.

  5. Oohh. I loathe when my husband asks me that, "you're not going anywhere today, are you?"

    My husband "finished" school two years ago. We've been paying tuition ever since we left because he has never finished writing up his thesis.

    I say I get to spend as much money as we have already spent on tuition for semesters he hasn't done anything!

  6. I can't even think coherently at 1 am much less blog. Sorry about the never ending schooling. If you get hungry you can always print and sell your blog as a book.

  7. Is he starting now? In Virginia? How exciting! Good luck to him and to you. There are some really great schools around your area. :)

  8. I was just telling someone recently how awful it was while my hubby was getting his MBA. He was Elder's Quorum President, worked full-time at a demanding job and took two classes each semester for four years. He corrected me and said it was only two years! Oops. It felt like 4. I swear that MBA stands for Mom's Bad Attitude.

    Good luck in your new adventure. Our years and years (OK it was only 2 years) are now paying lots of dividends. It was worth the sacrifices.

  9. Saw your blog on mommy blogs, so I wanted to check it out. We are recovering students... both of us. Good times.

  10. Been there. Student loaned that. Love means never having to say your sorry or have to stop going to school.
