A Post with Credits to the Saturn V and the Perseid Meteor Shower

I'm afraid my life has been slightly boring lately. Not that I'm bored...nope...quite on the contrary my friends. I have been bustin' my hump moving my crap from the small-one-bedroom-Saturn-V-facing-apartment to the large-oh-my-gosh-does-this-house-ever-end-in-the-shadow-of-the-Saturn-V house. It is quite a pain. And double pain for the BF who not only gets to help me move said crap, but also gets to endure my verbal crappage regarding the fine art of object placement within said, new dwelling. Poor guy.

I'm really not sure where I am even going with this post, except that I can't wait to finish up the move and get back to more important blog subjects...you know...like space and stuff ;-)

But in the meantime you will get a quick reminder about the Perseid Meteor Shower tonight (it was also last night...but I was too pooped to check it out). Check your local forecast for the best viewing times...here in Huntsville the peak is expected to occur from about 11pm to 5am with up to 80 meteors per hour! This reminds me of that time I made my BFF Liz stay up all night just to watch the solar eclipse on our 12 inch dorm-room T.V. I'm pretty sure she thought I was crazy. So....go be crazy, watch some meteors tonight, and call in sick to work tomorrow...I'm just saying ;-)

  1. I am so excited for the Meteor shower. i am sure I will be up for a portion of it and I think our best time is between 2 and 5 am or something. I am sure your parents can give me the details. Your last few posts are some of the first that I can truly understand being about the house and all. I wish we were there to help you move.

  2. Denise, I wish you were here to help April too... I'm not sure what hump she's been busting, last night my grandfather and I were trying to muscle the washer and dryer off the truck, while April was 'showing the new couch' to my grandmother... and she was kind enough to volunteer me to help build a fence Saturday!

    Just Kidding.... I know you have been busting your hump for this house... wallet hump that is...

    and I think the crazy neighbor lady actually volunteered me to build the fence... not sure how that happened...

MCM - Certified Mom

This morning I woke up early, the baby monitor was chirping just a few minutes before my alarm was set to go off. Chris graciously rolled out of bed and set out to re-insert Otto's paci. Meanwhile, I pressed my clothes, curled my hair and brewed some coffee - my standard pre-console routine. After a quick breakfast Zara peeped her head over the railing and I heard a gentle "mama" echo down the stairs. It was still dark, but this little one was ready for her daily breakfast of oatmeal and milk in preparation for a fun day at swim lessons and school. As she sat, eating her "oatsss" (as she calls them), I whirled around the kitchen prepping bottles, gathering outfits for school, and ensuring all the swim lesson supplies were set out. It's hard leaving Chris to take care of both kids in the morning (#momguilt) so I try my best to complete as many get-ahead tasks as possible, in hopes his morning goes smoothly. 
This morning schedule description may seem mundan…

MCM - On Call

It's definitely Monday. Otto spit up on my work clothes this morning, I forgot to brush my teeth and I sat down in my car forgetting to clean the layer of sand from the beach yesterday. Whoops. But, it's also MONDAY!!!!! Which means you get a special look behind the proverbial curtain of Mission Control in a series I'm dubbing "Mission Control Monday". We all need a little "boost" (pun intended) at the beginning of the week, so why not get it from the heart of Manned Spaceflight itself - NASA's Mission Control
This week I am highlighting the little known fact that sometimes, as an ADCO Specialist, I am scheduled to be "On Call". It just so happens I am "on-call" this week! Even though we don't have a sweet 1990's pager, the ADCO on-call is a Specialist with the cumbersome responsibility of having their cell phone strapped to them at all times. Yes, even during the night. Yes, even when you have a 3 month old. Yes, just…

'Subtle Nerdy' Home Decor

In our house you won't hear "Alexa...play country radio..." for two reasons. (1) We are not that into country music and (2) our "Alexa" is named "Computer" just like the interactive onboard computer on the Starship Enterprise. That's how I like my home decor too - it's a style I've nicknamed "subtle nerdy".  #subtlenerdy

Apparently 'subtle nerdy' doesn't have quite the following that 'farmhouse chic' does...yet! So, that means I have to get creative and DIY many of my nerdy touches. And, while you may not be super onboard with the 'subtle nerdy' trend sweeping the home decor world this hole-in-the-wall-internet-spot, I bet you have your own ideas just waiting to be manifested on a blank wall! So, let's jump in, starting in our master bedroom!

The showpiece of this room is that gorgeous four poster bed and amazingly detailed hand-made quilt. Confession number one: I did not DIY the bed (it was an ex…
