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 →

Food for Thought

Back to back posts. WHOA! So unpredictable lately. In news that is going to make you want to punch me in the face with a bucket, I just realized that Tom from Succession is also Mr. Darcy and I'm still sweeping up the pieces of my mind because HUH?! And I am very aware I'm... 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 →

In America: A Lexicon

Well, I just covered up in a towel so a dog wouldn't have to look at me, so that's where I'm at with that. I think I watched too many 90s sitcoms which have given me the complex that they have thoughts and platforms. Basically I didn't want to be judged by an animal and... Continue Reading →

Bronze

Oh hello on a Friday. I'm 38 now. I do what I want. Due to health concerns, family ruckus and obligatory Olympic dedication, I decided to take last week off. If the energy of the last blog I posted was any indication, I think it was best for all of us. In fact, you're welcome.... Continue Reading →

%&#@*!

Being sick and an adult is an ugly scene. I think I'm all grown up and with the snap of a finger I become the whiniest, neediest human this side of Oklahoma. Odd state choice on my part but I'm too tired to come up with something else. Yup, it's gonna be that kind of... 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 →

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 →
