Is It Bindi Gone Wrong or Just The Biggest Zit in LA County?

Is It Bindi Gone Wrong or Just The Biggest Zit in LA County?

What’s up with the shoulder pads?  I am all for capturing the best of each fashion decade, but I already suffer from a short neck.  The last thing I need is a pair of foam pillows closing in on my ears. Speaking of pads, you know what I love?  My heating pad.  I get...

Almost Too Sick To Play Games. Almost.

February 13, 2012
Almost Too Sick To Play Games.  Almost.

Weeeell, Hayden is feeling like a champ, but it seems as though his virus simply found a new host.  So you can imagine what kind of humor I am in. Since I didn’t feel like doing much of anything today, there was entirely too much television.  After the so very long yet delightful Mary...

Even the Science Kid Is Sick

Even the Science Kid Is Sick

Hayden has been down with a virus, but he was well enough to go back to school today.  This morning as I was preparing The Waffle and Honey my sort-of-patiently waiting son was chattering to himself when I heard, “Sick the Science Kid is brought to you by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.” This...

I’m Bringing Carrie Back

January 27, 2012

This morning at 6:57, I am mid-dream after falling back asleep sometime between 5:30 and 6:56. MOMMY! Where’s my silly putty!?!? Which is followed by repetitive toots from a recorder that plays the same note no matter which holes are covered up. So much for my self improvement plan, which involved getting more sleep....

My First and Only Kitty

January 23, 2012
My First and Only Kitty

I am not an animal lover (don’t tell me this surprises you). The fur?  Yuck. The slobber and the poop?  Even yuckier. Plus, kitties, and sometimes doggies, set my lungs into a state of pure anger, so I am pretty much not cut out to be around animals. Despite all this, a single runaway...

I’m Going If You’re Going.

January 19, 2012

So, BlogHer 2012. It’s right around the corner. Okay, not exactly, but early bird ticket pricing ends in a month, so this is key decision-making time.  And to go or not to go… that is the question. BlogHer 2011 was so easy for me, it would have been silly not to go.  All I...

Everything About This One Is So Easy.

January 16, 2012

I want to thank you all for the outpouring of support you have shown me this week and since I began this blog two years ago.  Yes, I write for me.  But if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it, does it make a sound?  After abstaining from...

A Door Has Closed, But It Closed Softly.

January 12, 2012

Those of you who have been with me for awhile know about the loss I’ve experienced (if not, you can read about it here and here). For almost two years we have tried to have a second child.  I have been pregnant three times and had three miscarriages, the latest one just this week....

Don’t Make Me Do It.

January 3, 2012

You!  Dorky man by the cheese! You had better not be thinking of making small talk with me. Don’t make me be snotty to you. In fact, don’t even look at me. That’s right, just walk away. Back to the bread isle. You!  In the white Mercedes! Put down the phone and step on...

I Don’t Do New Years Resolutions, But…

December 30, 2011

“Clara will be here in twenty minutes.  I’m going to go get ready.” Ten minutes pass. I clop/hobble out of the bedroom to go find a mirror, and Scott catches sight of me as I pass by. Are you going to wear those shoes like that? “Yeah!” (with false confidence)  “It’s totally in right...

The Bag of Hope

December 19, 2011

I open the door to an almost empty waiting room. “Can you sign in here please?” Why is there nobody here?  This can’t be a good sign. I sign in, hand the receptionist my necessary cards. “Oh, I talked to you yesterday, didn’t I?  You’ve been having some problems, right?” Girl, I got problems...

It Smells Really Bad. Like, Really Bad.

December 14, 2011

Scott and I, about three weeks ago… “Our place stinks.” No!  Our place is awesome! “No, haven’t you noticed that is always smells like sewage?” Yes but I am in denial Hmm, maybe it’s from something outside?  We are sort of out in the country. – – – – – – – – –...

My Window Shopping Took an Interesting Turn.

December 12, 2011
My Window Shopping Took an Interesting Turn.

Today I was pinning and window shopping researching and networking. I stumbled across some things you might want to check out. Things tight make gifts for an unappreciative boss or disagreeable relative. This one is for the man who always wanted a Polly Pocket but never could get past the gender issues. For the...
