We’re Movin’ On Up

July 25, 2011
We’re Movin’ On Up

Two years ago… Scott: Let’s ditch this rental and buy a house. Me: Um, k, but we sort of need money to do that.  Lots of it. Scott: Dude, so-an-so just bought a house. Me:  And, it’s a one bedroom one bath, right? Scott:  Well, doo-mi-flatch said we should just talk to a realtor...

RemembeRED: So, Do You Wanna Play?

RemembeRED: So, Do You Wanna Play?

I drive over to the party by myself.  I am totally okay with going alone.  It’s an acquaintance’s house,  and after putting and end to a long, unhealthily pointless relationship I feel independent. I walk in well after dark, but the Texas heat still hangs heavy.  The “party” is more like a small gathering...

Don’t Worry, I’ll Take Care of You

Don’t Worry, I’ll Take Care of You

One of my recent posts is featured today on a new blog called MomsLA.  It’s a collaborative blog with a group of awesome bloggers (and not just “mommy bloggers”). Check it out! Speaking of LA moms… Yesterday, a friend and I were at dinner, talking about women  and what is “expected” of them.  Women...

A Six Word Memoir

June 2, 2011
A Six Word Memoir

Lately I have been drawn to writing prompts. Perhaps since I can’t seem to write about anything other than my digestive issues, with posts featuring cow teats and farting, I need to start taking hints from better bloggers. Start stealing some ideas. Like writing a Six Word Memoir. Maybe if I stick to posts...

Hmph!

April 21, 2011

I am one of those people who squeezes every last pea-sized drop of toothpaste out before opening a new tube.  I turn the shampoo bottle upside down when it gets low so I can milk every last penny out of it.  I keep dirty used tissues in the console of my car because there...

Interventions

April 11, 2011

We begin a new day in the same way as the previous. We say our goodbyes out of habit. I go through my day.  The same day as the previous. I picture him.  Think of him.  Miss him. Together again, I don’t tell him how I have pictured him.  Thought of him.  Missed him....

Monster Baby Teeth

March 14, 2011

In the midst of an ER visit for me, and another ER visit for Hayden, something possibly far more tragic has happened.  A crisis that was as much physical as it was emotional.  You can read about it… Now! ———- I am about to reveal something about myself that many people do not know....

Procreation Dates and Little Brown Pills

March 5, 2011

Forgive me if I sound incoherent, for the fevers have set me off balance. Let’s see… I believe it began like this. Thursday, 8:15 pm: Me: “I am so ovulating today.  It’s ON, baby.” Scott: I thought yesterday was The Day? Me: “This is the last one.  We gotta rally.” And we rallied.  Despite...

Ugh.

February 21, 2011

I am sick.  With the popular virus.  All the cool moms have it- you know, the achy muscles, headache, and scratchy-sore throat. Just enough sickness to ruin my day, but not enough to warrant a visit to the doctor I don’t have. It started yesterday while my husband was out for a day of...

Faded Lines

January 10, 2011

“Scott!  C’meer! ” “What?” “There’s a line!  Look!” “I don’t see it.” “Yes, you do.  It’s really faint, almost a shadow.  See?” He picks it up, turns it this way and that in the light.  Puts it down. “I don’t see it.” I pick up a bobby pin to use as a pointer and...

This One Speaks For Itself

December 9, 2010

By now you know I hate being sick.  I whined about it yesterday. So when I woke up this morning with a throat that hurt more than I-don’t-know-what and an uvula the size of a golfball, I wasn’t sure what I was dreading more.  A trip to the ER (yes, because I am super...

Interpretive Dance with Paper Mache

December 1, 2010

I recently received a writing challenge from clean-as-a-whistle Elly at Buggin Word.  And you know I couldn’t pass up a challenge like that (well, maybe you didn’t know, but now you do).  In response to my whining about feeling like an empty-brained, slumpy, wannabe writer Elly said, “I’ll give you somethin’ to write about,...

Slumpy Frumpy Grumpy.

November 29, 2010

I am feeling slumpy.  Frumpy.  A little bit grumpy.  I am in a teeny writing slump.  And I don’t like it.  I know everyone goes through this from time to time, but I still don’t like it. S is off snowboarding, H is at school, and you’d think that I would be rushing to...

Little Lovebirds

November 15, 2010

They met at the gym.  Kindergym, to be exact.  And it was love at first sight.   And now, my three year-old has a girlfriend. This is legit.  Starry-eyed, hand-holding, I want to tickle you, completely crazy love. The girl is great.  We love her.   In fact, if they manage to avoid cooties and grow...
