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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Last Thursday I was 23. (Or maybe 27.)

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 […]

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 […]
