Baby, It’s Cold Outside! (for now…)

So, my husband and I have a pretty decent routine in the morning.

Alarm goes off at 6:30AM, and we hit snooze.

Alarm at 6:40AM, and I snooze back while he lets the doggie out and turns on the Keurig for me–I’m so lucky (more on my sweet hubs in future posts, I’m sure)…

Alarm at 6:47AM, and I hit snooze one more time (see, I told you I was lucky)…

Alarm at 6:50AM, and I reluctantly finally get up for my quick, 10-minute morning dash to brush my teeth, wash my face, put on something I can hide under my pharmacy lab coat and then run down the stairs to hit the 3rd button on my Keurig, until I finally scream out “Love you and have a great day” to my hubs, as I rush out the door to get in my car.

Whenever I work the morning shift, this is our routine…but, this morning was slightly different.

I went through all of the above but was missing my husband since he left to let the pup out . I didn’t think he left early, as I was sure he would have at least said goodbye before stepping out, but he was nowhere in the house and didn’t respond to my quick goodbye. Well, as I walked around the living room looking for him, he dashes back in from the front door shivering, and I knew…I just knew….Mother Nature struck again!

This morning, we woke up to a frozen wonderland where the grass and roofs looked solid white and all the cars in the driveways had shiny windows…well, all except mine! Mine wasn’t because like I said, I’m lucky…the hubs was out there warming up the cars and scraping off the ice! I couldn’t believe how much the temperature dropped and froze us all over because last night wasn’t all that bad.  Or, at least, not cold enough for me to think that the morning would be that bad!

But why am I posting about the weather?!?  Because I found this funny cartoon from Pinterest…(yes, I’am a Pinterest-addict!) and it is just so true with the winter we are currently having here!


Just in one day today, I was freezing cold this morning on the way to work, and then on my way back the sun was shining bright and it was just right with a little nip in the air.  And to add to the weather-madness, with the sun about to drop in the next 30 minutes, I know I’m going to have to bundle back up shortly here!

Mother Nature, rightly has been named as such…like most women, including myself, she is indecisive and quick to change her mind whenever she wants!  LOL!  Stay warm…or whatever, wherever you may be!

Goofin’ off, KW


Whoomp! (T)Here it is!

I’m not a savvy shopper, but I do try to clip a coupon or two or at least scope out the best shopping deals at the stores I frequent.  I’m not a trendy fashionista even if I tried, as heels are just not my thing and I’m just not bold enough for crazy prints.  I’m not a successful, crafting stay-at-home mom either, but I do craft on my days off now that I’ve found a friend who likes to do the same (very rare to find someone who has a similar schedule in the retail pharmacy world–more to come on that later).  And last but not least, I’m not a famous person–not even in my wildest dreams.  So, why am I taking it to this blog like someone will care what I have to say?  

Well, I am because I can, and I’d like to think that I have some “experience” in blogging.  I poured my teen angst on-line via LiveJournal and Xanga in what seems like ages ago.  Secondly, I once was actually a paid blogger for some time during my college years for my University’s undergraduate admissions to help recruit students. Finally, against my advisor’s counsel as he thought I was “getting off easy” on my Honors College Thesis, I blogged away my final year of Pharm.D. rotations in an attempt to figure out which professional direction I wanted to take my pharmacy career–there will definitely be more to come on this Rx career path later…

So, while it may be possible that no one else will read or even see this, I’ve decided that I will turn to and type away, vent, rant, laugh, giggle, and explore what’s to come in the days, months, and years ahead.  I’m no longer an emo high schooler, or a bright-eyed undergraduate, or even an over-achiever Pharm.D. candidate but it doesn’t mean I know who I really am right now in the real world either.  I’m just as much figuring my way around being a wife, a “mommy” to my Aiden, a professional, a friend, a sister, a daughter, a shopper, a crafter…you name it, there’s a lot I still have to figure out.  But more importantly, I want to blog to find a different outlet to just be “a ball of goof”.  I want to start taking life less seriously, one day at a time because I just turned 26 and I can’t keep being too serious or else…or else, life will just get in the way of living my life… I’ve been miss-goody-two-shoes all of my life and my ambitious and driven life has sometimes pushed me so hard that I forget to let loose some times.  I can’t let the best and fun sides of me be only on days-off and vacations…I have to let it out more frequently!

So…stick around, peruse, browse…laugh a little, learn, travel, and experience with me.  I can’t promise anything fabulous, but you just never know!

Goofin’ off…KW
