Gluten-y

August 22, 2011
Gluten-y

I have been reading this book about how to be healthy and how everyone is doing it all wrong and so we have cancer and fatness and sadness and gluten-y (not to be confused with gluttony), and then I remembered this rant I wrote last summer.  And I am going to share it with...

Deep Sleep and Bloody Knuckles

August 11, 2011
Deep Sleep and Bloody Knuckles

In the deep of a dream I hear a sound. The dream takes a turn as the sound becomes familiar, but somehow alarming. My heart awakens me abruptly, beating fast and hard before I even realize what is happening. I spring to my feet and peek through the window a mere three feet from...

What I Learned From BlogHer

August 8, 2011

Yes, this it yet another BlogHer11 post.  My apologies to those who are sick of it. As I mentioned many times before, this was my first time to attend a blogging conference.  I was filled with fear and dread and excitement and ambivalence at the same time. Yeah, I didn’t know that was possible,...

Something To Remember Me By

August 2, 2011

Speaking of Family

July 31, 2011

I’m back!  And right before I have to leave again, too.  BlogHer11 is just four days away! I haven’t been writing this week because I just didn’t have it in me.  On top of preparing for my new life as a pirate (a transition that will take place in just a few short weeks),...

We’re Movin’ On Up

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...

Not What I Was Hoping For

July 22, 2011

I am a little bit late,  but that’s okay.  Good, actually. I park, go inside, and go straight to the correct isle.  I know where it is by now. They are out of the cheap ones. I grab the value pack, check out, and then head home, making a stop at the library first....

Free As a Bird

July 5, 2011

Little redhead bird, high up in a tree. Whistling and calling down as if to say, “See how cute I am?” He dares us to catch him. He’ll never make it out there! We must have him! An open cage sits on the deck, shiny with a rounded top. Treats lure him, spark his...

Journal-y Me

June 23, 2011

I have been wanting to purge.  Go through everything and throw it out.  But as much as I long to de-clutter, I can’t shed my attachment to this stuff. Don’t get me wrong- I am no hoarder.  On the grand scheme of things, my home is relatively tidy and organized.  But I want to...

In Dancing Heaven

June 13, 2011

Once a week after school I would carpool with the other girls from school.  We’d change in the car, out of our Izods and knickers, and into our scratchy buff-colored tights, our Danskin leotards and Capezios.  Our ballet outfits. Although I never learned anything beyond a potty-boo-ray (I won’t pretend to know how to...

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...

Tomfoolery Schmoolery! I’ve Been Working.

June 1, 2011
Tomfoolery Schmoolery!  I’ve Been Working.

I’ve been really busy, lately.  Busy eating pizza and rolling out play-do and attending pee wee sports events and writing about really serious stuff like milk and toothpaste. Oh, and I’ve been drinking margaritas.  Not this morning, just in general.   In fact, the other night we went to hang out with some friends...
