According To Hayden, It’s Just Not Long Enough

August 31, 2012

I’ve been trying not to complain about my hair, which is not doing much in terms of improving my outlook because Hayden just complains about it for me. In fact, several times in the past week he has expressed disappointment with my hair’s lack of length and luster.  He has also made is quite...

Tuesday’s List

August 28, 2012

Tonight, I am just going to relax and read my kindle.  I’m not going to water anything OR do any more laundry.  In fact, I am just going to pretend that this morning’s drama over serving waffles incorrectly never happened and focus on Hayden’s more entertaining side.  You’ll probably want to do the same....

I Call This One “Ant On Paper”

I Call This One “Ant On Paper”

Seriously.  Maybe if this kid could stay well for more than a few days at a time I could get something done.  And maybe WRITE SOMETHING.  He has been sick four times since July 1, and I’ve decided that being away from other viral children is actually what is making him sick. IT IS...

Shrimp and Grits

August 16, 2012

The real reason I went to BlogHer12 this year wasn’t for the seminars, the free booze, or the hotel view.  Getting to see a handful of bloggers I adore was definitely a big draw, as was the free place ticket I got with miles, but the real reason was because I have family in...

Basil and Bourbon? Yes, Please.

August 12, 2012
Basil and Bourbon?  Yes, Please.

This is my sad refrigerator. I tend to think of myself as a resourceful cook, but I cannot create a meal out of watermelon, eggs, and mini Bonbels.  My refrigerator has been feeling empty and neglected. My liquor cabinet, on the other hand, is filled to capacity.  Mostly with stuff I won’t touch.  But...

If You Can’t Stand the Heat, Go To Ralphs.

If You Can’t Stand the Heat, Go To Ralphs.

It’s going to be 107 again today.  In an attempt to stay cool we have been hanging out at Ralphs, but we’ve run out of things to buy look at so we’re back to watching TV. – – – – – – – – – – Me:  Hayden, did you know that I used...

It’s Not Me, It’s Him.

August 8, 2012
It’s Not Me, It’s Him.

After spending thirty minutes helping Hayden build a train track that took up the entire living room floor, through tears he pronounced it “no good because it doesn’t go enough places.” This went on for another thirty minutes. It’s not me, it’s him. The train tears rolled into snack sobs because I prepared the...

Mars Is Awesome, But Murder Isn’t.

August 6, 2012

It bugs me when something awesome happens and ruins something terrible.  Like this week, when a mission to Mars trumped the shooting of innocent people in a temple, the very place where they should feel most safe. I picture this Wade Michael Page, and ex-US military man, storming into that temple with America, Fuck...

Hey, Where Are the Chips?

July 29, 2012

After nearly a week of server problems I can finally log in to my own blog. I am sure  you were all wondering where I was (heh heh), and just in time to disappear again- I am leaving for BlogHer in two days! No, I haven’t packed anything. Or typed out instructions and emergency...

Still and Quiet

July 24, 2012

Coolness seeps in through the open window bringing a welcomed chill after another hot day.  I pull  up the blanket and turn over, comforted by knowing all is still and quiet. What seems like moments later I am brought from a dream by a bright light and a whistling sound. Damned birds. I shut...
