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. – – – – – – – – –...

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...

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

November 1, 2011
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...

I Am On Strike.

I simply cannot work under these conditions.       I’ll be back once I have somewhere to put my underwear.

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

September 29, 2011
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...

I Need To Be Running My Fingers Instead of My Mouth

September 23, 2011

I have never thought of myself as a writer.  Grammar has always been my strong suit (when compared to math, at least), and in college I could produce an “A” research paper with my eyes closed and a bowl on my desk, but when it came to writing? Nah. I never had anything to...

Halloween Pigeons and Other Stuff

September 11, 2011
Halloween Pigeons and Other Stuff

Hayden has been asking questions about Santa and the Easter Bunny.  He wants to know why there isn’t a Halloween Pigeon who will come in the night while you are sleeping and leave Halloween cake.  Cake that would have soft orange jack-o-lanterns on it.  I think he’s on to something. I just spent two...

Mini Pads Suck.

September 7, 2011

I am presently chin-deep in home renovation.  No, not the fun, let’s spend a lot of money and make our home fancy kind or renovation.  I am talking about the let’s make this home liveable kind of renovation.  Which mostly involves tearing down tacky, dated stuff with a hacksaw and pounder and paying two...

Because An Inch Does Not Equal a Foot

August 31, 2011

I have not forgotten you, dear readers.  In fact, there is nothing I’d like more than to snap my fingers and find myself six weeks from now, lounging in my new kitchen, typing out a long, heartfelt yet entertaining post for you. Instead, I am spending my days (and nights) planning and executing a...
