On June 8th, Jeff and I went to see Tig Notaro and she was charming and funny and exactly what we needed. And because I always think I need a shirt, I bought a shirt. Places I Have Worn My Tig Notaro Shirt: The Delmar Loop (for ice cream! and cheese sticks!) The subdivision, while […]

When last we spoke, I had gone to see Margaret Glaspy with a friend after dropping by a tattoo place and asking about a spiral fountain pen on my arm. About two hours before the tattoo appointment (which was two weeks ago today and I really need to come by here more often), I started messing […]

On Thursday morning of last week, I drove around town looking for a place where I could get something similar to this. I know what you’re thinking, and that’s fine because everyone has a right to think what they think. BUT, I love the idea of a bracelet tattoo and I received a birthday gift […]

Questions: 1. I’m sort of bummed about the goings-on in my life. What should I do? 2. All of the news with the impeachment possibilities and the Russia who-knows-whats and the constant this-or-thats is making my blood pressure sky rocket. What should I do? 3. I’m considering learning how to play the oboe, but maybe […]

Writing and Pills, Doughnuts and Murderers

I’ve talked to three different people in the past week who are feeling inspired to write, and it’s so exciting and contagious. Right now I’m wearing ripped up jeans and a tank top (grey!), which means I should probably put something together about a woman who is going to make taco salad for dinner. (It’s a […]

So much, yet nothing! Since last we spoke, Meredith turned 14 and Harper turned 12 and we spent 24 hours in Chicago because Meredith and Jeff had tickets to see Frank Iero at Bottom Lounge. (I love the choices Meredith makes, but please know there’s a lot of blood flying in the video. Could this […]

It’s a good day for a deep breath and a nod.

A few hours ago, a friend gave me the bird, and it was delivered with a burst of inspiration, a side of empowerment, and a cup of tourlou tourlou. Prince died one year ago today. Life is short. Don’t be afraid to use your gifts. Not a Memoir I was at a party and things […]

Don’t go chasing them.

I’m wearing shorts. Ugh. The past nine days have found me lying on the couch and glottal frying for anyone who was willing to listen. Coughing. So much coughing. No voice. Achey. More coughing. My hot tea with raw honey and my leftovers cowl kept me company through the entire ride. This morning was the first […]

Embracing the Weasel

Not nearly often enough, I get up on a Friday morning, jump into the car, and drive three hours to visit my sister. This past Friday was one of those days. When I arrived in Springfield we immediately headed to Subway for chopped salads. Then I took a two hour nap! (I had to sleep […]

To prepare for the Panic! At The Disco show, Meredith volunteered to cut over a thousand paper hearts. Last night our family joined a handful of others around the stadium who passed out hearts and explained their purpose to anyone within reach. “When the band plays Girls/Girls/Boys, shine your light through the heart to show your […]
