My First and Only Kitty

My First and Only Kitty

I am not an animal lover (don’t tell me this surprises you). The fur?  Yuck. The slobber and the poop?  Even yuckier. Plus, kitties, and sometimes doggies, set my lungs into a state of pure anger, so I am pretty much not cut out to be around animals. Despite all this, a single runaway...

I’m Going If You’re Going.

January 19, 2012

So, BlogHer 2012. It’s right around the corner. Okay, not exactly, but early bird ticket pricing ends in a month, so this is key decision-making time.  And to go or not to go… that is the question. BlogHer 2011 was so easy for me, it would have been silly not to go.  All I...

Tuesday’s List

January 17, 2012

Yeah, I am a little late.  I think I’m entitled. I’ll bet it smells like cheap cigars. No, YOU get a time out! Mommy, I love you. What if Earf sounded like Yerf? Probably when I grow up I will have a mustache like Daddy because when boys grow up they usually have mustaches....

Everything About This One Is So Easy.

January 16, 2012

I want to thank you all for the outpouring of support you have shown me this week and since I began this blog two years ago.  Yes, I write for me.  But if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it, does it make a sound?  After abstaining from...

A Door Has Closed, But It Closed Softly.

January 12, 2012

Those of you who have been with me for awhile know about the loss I’ve experienced (if not, you can read about it here and here). For almost two years we have tried to have a second child.  I have been pregnant three times and had three miscarriages, the latest one just this week....

Tuesday’s List

January 10, 2012

This kid never ceases to confuse humor me.  I can’t believe he actually says this stuff.  I couldn’t make this shit up! My dad said in Nork City tomorrow a big parade is going on there. Probably when Stella* is older she will grow a baby in her tummy. I am glad I don’t...

Don’t Make Me Do It.

January 3, 2012

You!  Dorky man by the cheese! You had better not be thinking of making small talk with me. Don’t make me be snotty to you. In fact, don’t even look at me. That’s right, just walk away. Back to the bread isle. You!  In the white Mercedes! Put down the phone and step on...

I Don’t Do New Years Resolutions, But…

December 30, 2011

“Clara will be here in twenty minutes.  I’m going to go get ready.” Ten minutes pass. I clop/hobble out of the bedroom to go find a mirror, and Scott catches sight of me as I pass by. Are you going to wear those shoes like that? “Yeah!” (with false confidence)  “It’s totally in right...

It’s Almost Christmas. Let’s Make Red and Green Stuff.

December 21, 2011

Do you know what you are serving Christmas Day?  What about some apps to go with all that wine you plan to drink?  Now, I’ve got your attention. Ehem. I present to you, red and green foods. When you’re done perusing, head over to This Blogger Makes Fun of Stuff and read about the...

The Bag of Hope

December 19, 2011

I open the door to an almost empty waiting room. “Can you sign in here please?” Why is there nobody here?  This can’t be a good sign. I sign in, hand the receptionist my necessary cards. “Oh, I talked to you yesterday, didn’t I?  You’ve been having some problems, right?” Girl, I got problems...
