One Track Mind Full of Randomness

I haven't posted in a while.  I'll get an idea and then it dissipates.  In all honesty, except for finances, the only thing I think about most days is the baby.  I figure most people don't want to hear all of the day to day fascinating things he does like get crazy active after I eat Dulce de Leche Cheerios, so I keep it to myself.

I just finished the latest Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child.  He's one of my favorite suspense authors and Reacher is maybe my favorite character of all time.  I've loved most of the Reachers.  This is the first of the last few with which I've been completely enthralled.  I read it the time span of noon to 10 pm, including 4 hours of work time and a dinner date with my husband.  It is completely fantastic.  I'm now jonesing for another.

In other news, today is Halloween.  I don't have a wee one to take trick or treating anymore, or yet again.  I'm not doing candy this year, either.  I think I'll save it for next year when I'll have a wee one to dress up in costume to help me dish out the candy.

In news that isn't new, but is overwhelming, I'm sending my thoughts and prayers out to the millions affected by Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy.  The utter devastation is breathtaking.  Seeing the NYC subways filled with water is shocking to me.  I used to ride those regularly and take a car through the tunnels to the airport.  My biggest fear was, "what if there's a crack?"  I'm proud of the staff of Langone and the rescue workers who evacuated patients down 10+ flights of stairs in the dark, keeping them ventilated until they were re-established at Mt. Sinai.  As a NICU staff member, I was especially touched by stories of the babies saved and the heartbreak of their parents who were trapped away from the hospital without power or phone service to even know the fate of their babies.

And there my brain goes in a full to baby.


  1. I miss dulce de leche cherrios…and adore your mind full of randomness. Glad things are going well!! (and I never tire of baby talk!)

  2. Thanks, Angie. I just discovered those things a week or so ago. I admire that you've adjusted your diet so well as to avoid more medical interventions. I hope your fur baby is keeping you company with your feet up.

  3. I live in nyc and I still find it crazy to watch.
