My Candy Confession

Is it me, or does nearly every holiday have a monstrous candy component designed to make our thighs rub together when we walk? Well, my candy food addictions change with the seasons. And it’s Easter-time, so my  addiction to Russell Stovers cream eggs has risen. You know the individually wrapped ones that are either strawberry (salivating) […]

Part 1 – Why I Shouldn’t Try to Be Funny Or Cool

Well, at this point the cat’s out of the bag. I’m a spaz. Not that you need more proof, but I am going to give it to you anyway. Because it makes me laugh. At myself. Sadly, the funniest things I do are when I am trying to be funny or cool. But the failure […]

Time and Christmastime

Like last year, the whopping deadline known as Christmas morning once again had us up late – this year, until 1:30 a.m.! Fortunately, Christmas Day (post greed-fest) was really low key, so naps were on the docket. But even with naps, my kiddos have been out of sorts for the last few days and I […]

Desperately Seeking Spandex

I would say I’m a planner. If there’s something big going on, you can bet my clothes are pressed and set out the night before. Suffice it to say, it drives me bonkers if I overlook an important detail. But, you know there’s always something… I went to have headshots taken by a professional photographer […]

Okay, So I’m Clumsy When I’m Angry

Well, I wasn’t going to share this next story. Especially after I confessed on my FB fan page that I actually fell down making my bed. (Like it was my fault — the tread on my new sneakers was just too much for my speedy bed-making abilities).  I don’t really want to present myself as […]

Unexplained Acts of Stupidity

Well, I don’t know why I make things hard for myself, but sometimes I do. It’s sort of sad that this list is growing, but the facts are the facts. Here are two more unexplained acts of stupidity. #1 – I leave landmines in the hallway (and sometimes the bathroom). You know when you turn […]

Tweet Nothings Tweet Nothings: Except for the High School Reunion

Do you Tweet? I’m having a hard time getting into it. Why? Could be a couple of reasons: I don’t think my singular thoughts are typically worth sharing. Economy of words isn’t really my thing. I still have a totally lame flip phone. It’s cheap and since my  last phone swan-dove to its death in […]

Vision Board: Um, Who Am I Again?

I had a vision — for my office. I thought that if I made it fresh and fun that I would write there and be inspired to create with abandon.  I got a Mac, a cute desk I painted green and hung a cork board. Where do I work? At our messy black desk on the main […]
