I Might Love My Feet More Than You Love Yours

I Might Love My Feet More Than You Love Yours

Last week I did some house cleaning for this long-neglected blog and came across a picture of my foot.  Those of you who actually read what I used to write may remember that I have been running for a long time (fifteen years, actually), and just like any relationship, my love for running has had...

Identity Crisis

February 24, 2014

I heard it all the time. Yoga is great for runners. And after encouragement from a friend and member of Team Yoga, three and a half years ago I went to my first yoga class.  At a real yoga studio. My reaction? That actually didn’t suck. I think I’ll give it one more try...

I Took a Picture To Remind Me

I Took a Picture To Remind Me

In case it stopped hurting or I forgot to look in the mirror. This is what happens when your friends show up two and a half hours late because your autotype told them to come over tomorrow and so you drank their share of the margaritas and then tried to play soccer in the...

Paragark and a Tuesday’s List

February 4, 2013

One of Hayden’s favorite stories is about the time I found snake poop in one of my kitchen cabinets. I never found the snake. He also loooves it when I tell him about having to take “paragark” (aka paragoric) when I was a kid.  There was no such think as children’s Motrin or even...

I’m a Mommy and Sort-of a Blogger, But I Don’t Want Any Free Cool Whip.

December 3, 2012
I’m a Mommy and Sort-of a Blogger, But I Don’t Want Any Free Cool Whip.

I tend to keep to myself.  I don’t have a mommies group and I don’t do lunch.  I have to make myself call people on the phone.  It’s not that I don’t love them or that I don’t think of them multiple times a day.  They should  know that.  They should feel me reaching...

Bear Country

November 21, 2012

I am finally in a deep sleep.  Dreaming in fact, when I hear Arthur barking like crazy. In my half-dead state, I jab Scott awake and tell him to go fix it. He just lies there. Arthur is still barking. I give him a shove and mumble something about being the man of the...

Plant Therapy

September 28, 2012

Maybe writing is like therapy.  You do it until you don’t need it anymore. Although I started blogging for myself, I feel guilty when I don’t write because this has turned into something more. Each week I think, I am going to start blogging again! But I’d rather be outside. This year-long writer’s block...

So Hum.

September 19, 2012

I am not the sweetest, but I am often thoughtful. I will serve you something warm and surprise you with something small. I am a giver of advice, which is sometimes unsolicited. I am someone who wets her pants from laughter and sheds tears of joy.  If you make me laugh you’ll have me...

I Am Not Usually Long Winded, But This Is Important: We Have the Right To Know

I Am Not Usually Long Winded, But This Is Important: We Have the Right To Know

I spent my last year of graduate school interning with a rheumatologist.  Most of the patients I saw were referred for signs or symptoms of a rheumatic illness: joint pain, swelling, stiffness, headaches, vascular problems, abnormal lab values. Occasionally there was someone with a simple case of osteoarthritis, but most of these people were...

I Drive a Purse.

I Drive a Purse.

Remember that meme awhile back, “What’s in your purse?  And everybody took pictures of the insides of their purses and laughed at the crazy crap they carry around every day? I didn’t participate in that meme because pictures of my purse would have been boring. I only have two things in my purse- a...

According To Hayden, It’s Just Not Long Enough

August 31, 2012

I’ve been trying not to complain about my hair, which is not doing much in terms of improving my outlook because Hayden just complains about it for me. In fact, several times in the past week he has expressed disappointment with my hair’s lack of length and luster.  He has also made is quite...

I Call This One “Ant On Paper”

I Call This One “Ant On Paper”

Seriously.  Maybe if this kid could stay well for more than a few days at a time I could get something done.  And maybe WRITE SOMETHING.  He has been sick four times since July 1, and I’ve decided that being away from other viral children is actually what is making him sick. IT IS...
