Random Friday Musings… January 31, 2014

Filed under: Random — Kelocity @ 3:44 pm

1.) My Gmail/Google account was at 98% capacity last week… I started deleting emails, attachments and duplicate photos like crazy until I somehow got down to 54%! It was sorta exhilarating to clear out over six gigs of unnecessary digital junk! (Side note: I was deleting things so fast that Google suspended my account for an hour thinking it was fraudulent activity. ha!)

2.) On a similar note, Irving and I are on a mission to unsubscribe to some of the enewsletters we get in our inbox each morning. Two of them were Babies R Us and The Bump. I can’t believe there is really nothing we need at Babies R Us anymore?!

3.) I forgot to tell you about my Downton Abbey viewing party I had a few weeks ago for the Season Premiere! It was fun! A bunch of us girls got together, dined on mini tea sandwiches and mourned the loss of Matthew (whyyy, Matthew???) It was a blast! (By the way, how awesome is this season?!)

4.) I’m so excited it’s almost Olympic time again!!!! I LOOOOOVE the Olympics! Have you read about #TeamPaul? You should. It’s awesome. His story reminds me of what I think the Olympics should be about. No big corporate sponsorships, no endorsement deals. Just watching the human body and spirit try to accomplish great things. Good for him!



Five Random Things December 9, 2013

  1. It’s COLD here! I know, I know. Everyone’s making fun of us in LA. But seriously, one day last week it was 37* when I left for work! That’s cold no matter where you live!
  2. I bought my first menorah last week! Irving’s Jewish so I want Adele to grow up with both traditions! I have no idea what I’m doing, but next year, we’ll be lighting some candles! And since it is my first, I got the bedazzled one with Swarovski crystals, because… why not? It was on clearance since it was the day after Hanukkah… plus with my coupon it was a steal of deal. Let the multi-faith celebrations begin! (next year…)
  3. I’ve been listening to this over and over again. It’s incredible!
  4. Tonight, we’re having a funeral for almost our our rubber duckies in the tub. This happened. Gross!
  5. I had been having some sciatic pain over the past year, and things just didn’t feel right. I had an xray to see what’s up. I thought it was a herniated disc (and I actually still do), but it’s being caused by an extreme curve that is pinching all my nerves there!

The left image is my lower spine. And the right image is what it’s supposed to look like. Yikes! Luckily physical therapy has been going well. I’m optimistic.

3.) Ride On Toys

8.) Even more ride on toys (this time actually riding it).

What random things did you do lately?


What’s up, Thursday? April 18, 2013

A few random Thursday Musings for you…

–This week, a Costco-sized jug of laundry detergent fell off the top of the washing machine and cracked. Yep. Did I mention it was brand new and full?! We ended up salvaging what we could into water bottles and tupperware. Awesome.

–I accidentally scraped our new van against a fence tonight. whoops. I called Irving and proclaimed “Our Van has been Christened”. Sigh.

–After the great van-scraping disaster, I put Adele in the stroller and took off on foot for a walk with friends. Still had my work dress and some faux pearls on, but I shoved half a string-cheese in Adele’s hand (and called it dinner) and hit the pavement. I was determined to redeem myself for the bad day. Sometimes, you have to fight the Universe when it feels like it’s against you and it’s almost always worth it.

–I’ve always said that taking Adele out of her routine occasionally is a good thing. I think it’s one of the reasons she’s so flexible and adaptable. But I’ve had her out twice this week, and I think it might be catching up to her. We’ve got a couple of early nights ahead of us I think!
–I’m embarrassed (not really) by the amount of empty wine bottles in my recycling bin at the moment. I can’t help it. An evening glass has been such a nice indulgence and end to the day!

–Went to an Orthopedic Surgeon this week who diagnosed my back pain. I have a herniated disc that is creating havoc on my Sciatic Nerve. Been doing a lot of crunches, stretching and tennis ball rolling to help it out. Still not running til the pain goes away. I really think it’s connected to the way your pelvis and hips move after childbirth. Thank you, Adele.


As a reward for reading my Thursday Musings, I’ll reward you with another park picture of Adele:
