The habits of highly cranky 75 year olds

How do you write your blog posts?  Do you write, then title, or do you tend to title, then write?  Me?  I'm most definitely a "Title, then write" kind of girl.  I usually know exactly where I'm going, and how I'm going to get there.  This week though, not so much.  In fact, there is no title as of yet to this blog post.  We're going to enjoy the journey together today, folks.

I just said "folks", like I'm 75 or something.  Also, I have a cat in my lap; again like I'm 75 or something.

Our office is still a mess, and I've only minimally started to tackle our hoarding issue.  Oopsie.

I'm not sure why I was making that particular face.  I think because I was trying to get the cat to look at the camera AND simultaneously hide our shame?  Either way, it's probably a good thing it's a lips-down shot.

I got some great presents in the mail from Maggie on Monday.  I was so excited to see the pretties she sent.  Can you believe she was sweet enough to knit me a headband? 

I would really like to learn to knit.  Mostly because I can say "folks", drink tea, complain about noisy children, and knit, all while I have a cat on my lap.  Don't even try to convince Beckham that I am allowed to do anything without him.  He follows me around everywhere, like I'm Mary, and he's my little lamb.

Speaking of me being like Mary, my co-workers call Ammon "Jesus", because his first name is pronounces "A-men"... like the conclusion of a prayer.  As a result, they sometimes call me Mary.  Coincidence?  Perhaps.

Oh, and here's a picture of Ammon, with the homemade calzone I made for dinner Friday night.  I started the pizza dough from scratch on my lunch break, then came home after work and threw these guys together.  They were gooooooooooood

What?  Your man friend doesn't cuddle his food???

I've been trying to make this flow so far, and I think I did pretty well.  Except, I have nowhere to go from cuddling food.  I think I need to figure out a title, and take my little black sheep cat to bed with me.  Hope you are having the best Wednesday yet!


  1. I'm dying at the first picture...lips down shot. That Ammon is a funny character. You two seem perfect together :)

  2. I'm definitely a write then title kind of gal. but it's because, just like my life, I have no idea what's going on until it's done. haha
    and I want a cat and to learn to knit too. We could be old lady friends together.

  3. I think we are old ladies together! I'll teach you to knit. =) Then we can be old ladies with cats and tea and call young people 'whiper-snapers'. =) Glad you loved the headband!

  4. This post made me smile from ear to ear. Mostly because I am lovingly referred to as Grandma in my family, because, well I love to knit, and sit, and read, and well, do all things a 75 year old would. WELCOME TO THE CLUB!

  5. lol I love you Kristen! And you should know that I ALWAYS write, then title. I can't title then write... it's just impossible for me. Like, I am totally and completely incapable of doing it.

    That's all.

  6. haha, I usually do the titles last. or in the middle. but I usually start writing and THEN think of a title. I never really though about it until YOU brought it up! thanks for that. :)
    dinner looks incredible! I'd cuddle that too.

  7. I'm usually a post first, title last kinda girl. Which doesn't always serve me well because more often than not, I finish and I'm think what the heck am i going to title this thing?! I think you did very well keeping on topic with your title! Color me impressed! :)

  8. girl your blog keeps getting more and more random.

    i approve more and more. especially because you're engaged to jesus.

  9. oooh homemade calzones! I would cuddle those too lol

  10. Hugging food is better than hugging the toilet.

  11. Yum home made calzones sound amazing.

    I'm all for the random posts. I usually have some idea of where I'm going and usually start with a title too, but sometimes I just let the fingers do the writing (it's dangerous!)


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
