This New Thing

November 12, 2012

I’ve never read The Secret. I understand the general premise, that you put what you want out into the universe, and by way of some sort of Oprah Hogwarts magic, it happens. But, I’m just not very new-agey, and also, I’m insanely distractable and impatient. I’ve been walking around all day wearing a post-it note […]

Secret Travel Diary: Dallas Or Die Tryin’

September 7, 2012

I’d fly Keanu Reeves Express Air if it was a good price, wasn’t shaped like a phone booth, and they didn’t have a Chicago layover, because O’Hare collects connecting flights like fucking Gollum.

A Boy Named Sue

August 20, 2012

When you have three kids who are basically the same age, they kinda glob together into one mega kid who you assume gets enough specialness and attention from you. And that’s mostly true.

Giants.

March 15, 2012

Sunday I fly out to Wisconsin, and thus starts the annual cycle of fear. I’ve talked way too many times before about my fear of flight, but it didn’t occur to me, until recently, how my fear of flight was effecting others. Color me selfish, y’all, but it turns out, people hate traveling with me, […]

Road Poetry

February 27, 2012

In case you missed it, we’re on the road. Driving from Ohio to Florida, because we just really enjoy doing that with three kids 5 and under. We’ve decided to escape for a week or so, which sounds way more romantic and mysterious than… Andy was going to lose his vacation days, my house is […]
