Mrs. Flinger: A work in progress

UPDATE TO Mrs. Flinger October 16, 2015

Because the Universe has a wicked sense of humor, after this delcaration, my blog threw up all over my last upgrade.

So I'm starting over using Craft. Turning 40 and kid entering Jr High next year, sometimes it's just time for a change. These archives will still exist in the way the last child goes off to college and their room is the same for 20 years, but it's just time to move forward.

Maybe that wasn’t a good idea May 31, 2005

Uh.. if you don’t read my Moms site, you might want to for a good laugh. Holy crap.

I showed her how to post a picture. GOOD LORD she’s OUTTA CONTROL! OOOhhh, Oma! She doesn’t do ANYTHING in little bits.

I’ll reflect after some sleep, coffee, and a night in my own bed May 29, 2005

I remember things about myself pre-baby. Actually, I’m remembering things pre-marriage, pre-job, pre-“real world.” I’m remembering what it’s like to feel 21. I’m remembering what it’s like to be too free spirited, not be able to hold down a real job, not be able to stay in any location longer than 8 months, not be able to commit to a major, a man, a life. I’m remembering why I had to grow up.

I’m glad I did. Now, may I please go back?

I am not a very nice person sometimes May 26, 2005

I am very very very evil.

What happened to spontaneous? May 25, 2005

We want to go to Bellingham tomorrow. We decided late yesterday. How possible is that? With two dogs and a baby?



How do you do it? May 24, 2005


I don’t have my shit together. I don’t. I might look like I do? But I don’t. Hell, I don’t even think I look like I do. Let’s be honest.

Apparently, 29 is the end of the road May 23, 2005

#Rants and Raves

I’m struggling with transition. The transition from working girl, career lady, working up the ladder to spitup queen, shit changer, mommy-extraordinaire. Any one else having this trouble?

I suck as a bloggy mom May 21, 2005

#The Flinger Family

Let’s face it. I don’t do the monthly updates. What kind of mommy blog doesn’t do the monthly update? Why, you ask? I suck, that’s why. I need to write some cute little love poem I could put in her baby book. Instead, I’d rather write this:

Hey, baby, what are you wearing? *edited* May 19, 2005

I noticed something while in Seattle last weekend. There is a huge, but subtle difference in what people wear. I didn’t realize that I was still hip. Even though Portland and Seattle are relatively close if you compare SC or Maryland, say, to here, there are still some very important differences between the landscape, the people, the traffic, the cost of living and what people wear.

I miss you, chocolate May 17, 2005

It has been, officially, 27 hours, 15 minutes and 32 seconds since I had chocolate. I’m going pure, people. I’m going healthy. I’m going sugar free, processed free, food package free.

I’m going insane.

Wedding Count Down May 10, 2005

On a lighter note, I’m the Matron of Honor in my best friend’s wedding this weekend.

I’m having nightmares. It’s not even my wedding.
