This is where I would go to beat my head against the floor when I was three years old. (I stopped beating my head against the floor after accidentally ramming my eye into my fancy patent leather shoe. The black eye forced me to find a new way to throw tantrums.) This is where my […]

All of my friends from college spent time with me on the football field. I know I’ve mentioned my Marching Mizzou careerĀ at least once. (I just used the word Career. To me, the word Career is like the word Woman. Have we ever talked about the adult words that I’m not yet ready to embrace […]

Things are happening on this end. First off, I believe my comments are being hacked by Russians, and that probably isn’t true at all, but I *am* getting entirely too many meaningless comments and links from someone whose name looks Russian and I’m not even going to use the word collusion here because even seeing […]

Ah, Labor Day Weekend. Congratulations to the American worker for your economic achievements. It is because of your diligence that our country is in such great shape today. Wait a second. Did you just say that our country isn’t in such great shape today? North Korea who? DACA what? Harvey and Irma and our president […]

End of August

I eclipsed. Our house was in the path of totality, which was pretty convenient. Thanks for accommodating us, Sun and Moon (and Krispy Kreme)! I looked at the sun without the glasses for a bit because I have no impulse control and you can’t tell me what to do. I haven’t had a migraine since […]

I’ve got a bad case of loving you.

Listening to Sue Klebold’s Columbine book as I dropped Meredith off at the high school for the first time probably wasn’t the best idea. BUT, I’m almost done with the book (Thank GOD!) so I’ll soon be entertaining myself with podcasts for the back and forths. (You don’t want to know how I feel about […]

And may your dreams be realized.

I received a call on Friday from a woman who invited me to a special sleepover. In order to attend, I had to sign release forms and promise to not wear makeup or lotion. I was asked to shower before I arrived. I purchased special swanky pajamas for the event, as I normally crash in […]

This isn’t about you. It’s all about me. Insert apology here. And also here.

Last week I took off my glasses and looked like this: Today I put my glasses back on and I sort of looked like this: I say “sort of” only because a branch of magic is happening in the photo that’s making my arms look like spaghetti. Capellini, even. Speaking of magic, you may be […]

Also, I have a spider bite on my back, but it isn’t destroying me.

2016’s end of July kicked off a year of suck for our family that is still pretty much sucking, despite my (admittedly (slightly) weakening) ability to bring a constant lighthearted mustard-swilling dazzle. As you (may or may not) know, Jeff’s position was eliminated back in July of 2016 and I’m not here to sing songs […]

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 […]
