Dear Betty

I wanted to wait 2022 out. Not that I'm pessimistic. I've just been alive these past few years. It's called cautious optimism. My dating life mantra has now seeped into my everyday and for good reason. I got back on the apps. Met a guy who had been doing microshots all day. So I'm back... Continue Reading →

And Just Like That…

If you ever want to discover where you are emotionally, put lights up on the Christmas tree and then wait for your mother to come in and tell you everything that's wrong with it. In her defense, she was making a white chocolate mousse cheesecake of some kind but STILL. You know at the science... Continue Reading →

it takes a village

For the amount of times I use the phrase 'I can't wait to tell my grandkids', you'd think I'd have several children. Alas, I don't even have a date lined up. And I waver between being the most okay with it and utterly bored about it. At this point, if he shows up I'm just... Continue Reading →

Artisanal

It was requested that I 'be funny again' this week so I guess I'll take a stab at it... Q: Why is reverse cowgirl illegal in Alabama? A: Cause you don't turn your back on family. That is the only guaranteed laugh I have to offer. I don't believe I have much of an audience... Continue Reading →

The Sun Will Rise

I'd love to tell you I fell into a portal and found myself in an alternate universe where everything I read about exists and that I fought in an epic battle and brought peace to the realms and was crowned princess and adored by all. But alas, I was having a love affair with life.... Continue Reading →

Love & Happy-ness

Still not really sure how it's July or 2021 or Thursday or anything anymore. I need a time machine and a basket of champagne. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I know celebrating America can be divisive but I like to think of it as a celebration of our rebellion against the authority, splitting... Continue Reading →

LFG

I got my apps all downloaded. I got my devices amped and ready. I've been following the torch. Bring on the Olympics. I'll be living on Tokyo time and it looks like I won't be sleeping for 14 days. Totally worth it. Can't wait. I told my brother's fiancé she's lucky her shower doesn't overlap... Continue Reading →

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Ahoy there! Well it happened - I bought two shirts THAT AREN'T BLACK!!! Insert confetti and prizes here. I also bought the same shirt in three different colors, so there's that as well. I like what I like. I don't think I'm ever going to be remembered for my fashion choices. I contemplated buying biker... Continue Reading →

Domestic

Took a tiny siesta to go back to the midwest in the middle of cicada season. Love is love, am I right? I did yard work for the first time in my 37 years and I gotta tell you - domestic life is not for me. And this isn't because I'm dainty or that I... Continue Reading →

Complications

This week's headlines were flooded with the news that Prince Harry used drugs and alcohol to cope with his mother's death. Gasp! Are we that desperate for news from the Royals? Most people use drugs and alcohol to get through a Tuesday so I'm failing to to comprehend the shock and awe. I'd be more... Continue Reading →
