It Was Bound to Happen

June 11, 2014

We had our first ER trip yesterday. It took almost 17 months for a full-fledged emergency but it has happened. And, unsurprisingly, it was with Emma…the mini-me.  I was hoping she’d forego the part of me that is clumsy and cursed and injury prone, but it seems that’s part of the package deal. No substitutions, […]

For the Love of Showers

June 1, 2014

I can’t ever recall being a bath girl. A lot of gals like baths. They light candles and relax. Maybe they read. Maybe they listen to music. There are a lot of bubbles. They leave the situation feeling relaxed. Perhaps it’s because I’m a larger lady and bathtubs normally make me feel trapped, but I […]

What of it?

May 27, 2014

The Mister shared a memed story with me tonight that he said was definitely written about me. The story goes like this… A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mamal, its […]

The Presence of Time

May 21, 2014

I have had at least seventy hundred gazillion post ideas run through my head since the last time I laid the virtual pen to paper here. And a total of zero of them have even made it to the draft stage.  Those aren’t good numbers. It’s like I’m crossing a threshold for some sort of […]

The Other Side of Spring

April 22, 2014

It is only the irony of life that keeps me laughing sometimes. This week has brought new life into our home…well, our garage to be exact. On Sunday night, our neighbor came over to inform us that there were kittens “pouring” out of our garage. Two were spotted by him, only one of which I […]

The Tribe of RuPaul

April 14, 2014

In my podcasting listening recently, I came across an interview with RuPaul. This was of interest to me for two reasons: (1) it was probably going to be an interesting interview; and, (2) I had time to burn in the car.  I will admit, though, that any time RuPaul is involved a cringe a bit…and […]

Songs in my Head

April 9, 2014

It’s been a LONG time since we’ve done this, but summer is just around the corner (thank the sweet baby Jesus) and it’s time to get our jams on. So let’s do this…   Ain’t it Fun by Paramore I’m going to be blunt: Paramore is hit or miss for me and usually miss. I’ve […]

My Life Lately…A Tale of GIFs, Part 8

April 1, 2014

    When The Mister suckered me into buying a foreign car for the first time… When I enjoyed the car and needed to morally justify it to myself… When The Mister called me to let me know he hit a pothole and had a flat tire…in the brand new car… When that cost $200 […]

Three Ring Battleground

March 12, 2014

February was a tough month. Busy from end to end, trying at every turn…it wanted to burn me down. And if that wasn’t enough (it never is), I found myself doing a lot of self-sabotaging. The biggest culprit? My incessant need to correct people. The never-ending trough of crap that is fed to us on […]

Random Thoughts

March 6, 2014

If you don’t follow Honest Toddler on Facebook or Twitter, I feel bad for you. Even prior to having kids (or toddlers as they are called now, I guess) this shit was hilarious. I made the epic mistake of telling my mom that I intended on using Lent as a time of reflection on faith […]
