Blast From the Past

December 8, 2011
Blast From the Past

A lot has changed over the past year.  Well, actually, that’s a bunch of baloney.  The kind of stuff people write in holiday form letters. Aside from remodeling a house, not much has changed. Oh, except that I decided that I was going to be an eater instead of a cooker.  Because even though...

I’ll Get Past the Dirty and Enjoy a Cheap Thrill

December 5, 2011

Just passing by an American Apparel store makes me feel dirty. And in LA, where American Apparel was born, there is an AA store on every corner.  Which means I am in constant need of a shower.  Or a confessional.  Or maybe both. Rarely do I actually go into an American Apparel store.  I...

Crazy Chemical Surprise

November 24, 2011
Crazy Chemical Surprise

Happy Thanksgiving! And now, for the real post. In an effort to keep things fresh, I like to mix things up a bit.  I mix up the flour before I spoon it out for baking.  I mix up the coffee before measuring my scoops. And while in the car I like to mix the...

My Mind Is Occupied

November 17, 2011

Everyone is disgruntled.  Well, everyone that I know is disgruntled- I don’t know any CEOs or corporate bigshots, and let’s face it- what could they possible have to complain about? I have a hard time believing that the 1% is paying too much in taxes.  Sure, they may be giving thousands, even millions each...

It Wouldn’t Be a Wedding Ceremony Without a Cougher

November 9, 2011

Well, Hayden is barking like a dog and gargling phlegm.  Just in time for us to get on a plane tomorrow and fly to Texas for Sister Number 2’s wedding. He will be a ring bearer in the ceremony and may be even cuter than he was last year, even if he does hack...

Don’t Wipe Your Poo On the Counter

Don’t Wipe Your Poo On the Counter

I feel like I have been gone a long, long time.  Not a day has gone by that I haven’t thought about writing.  About reading.  About how all of you might have had babies and made changes and cried and laughed, and I have missed it all because I have been out there somewhere...

Inside Out

October 15, 2011

Piece by piece is chipped away Until my shell loses strength And I fall apart I spill from the inside out Revealing dark holes and stubborn knots Tears of anger and doubt flow But never seem to wash it all away I look to you for reassurance Knowing that it should come from within...

I Love

October 13, 2011

There has been a lot of stress. A lot of yearning for what is so close yet so far. A lot of struggle to get past what I don’t love about this situation. And so, inspired by Lemmonex who was inspired by SheLikesPurple, I have created a Love List. I love a good night’s...

Reliving My Dreams. Or Re-Dreaming My Life. Or Something Like That.

October 3, 2011

I think that eating peanut butter sandwiches every day for lunch AND dinner has started to affect my sleep.  Or maybe it’s Hayden’s multiple night-time wakings that started when we moved to this house. Regardless of the cause, I am not getting enough sleep, and what little REM time I do get it ruined...

We Traded Our 3-2-3 For An 8-1-8

We Traded Our 3-2-3 For An 8-1-8

All of my furniture is covered in saw dust. I am covered in saw dust. I wheel around a coffee cart like a flight attendant so that we can have “breakfast” each day.  Since our dinners are limited to delivery pizza or Baja Fresh, breakfast is our one shot at squeezing in a little...

Is this a lady? No, it’s  man. No, it’s a lady! (giggling) No, it’s a man.  He just has a high voice. What’s this music called? Yaz. Yaz? (full-on laughing) Y-a-z.  Yaz. This is funny music, isn’t it, Mommy!
