Dear Husband,

May 18, 2008

You are never around anymore, as the weather is beautiful, and you have since moved on to your summer home at the golf green, so I decided to write you this letter to keep you up to date on the haps (I heard it on Teen Disney, pretty hip, huh), since I know you secretly […]

Which is hotter…mini van or refurbished school bus?

May 14, 2008

As I laid in bed this morning, teetering on the edge of a mattress holding two toddlers, a pug and a husband, my first thought was…what the fuck. My youngest is completely sweated to my side, the oldest is horizontal across the middle of the bed, and both the dog and husband are snoring so […]

You can sleep when you’re dead.

Things I’ve learned about children’s birthday parties…. 1. Yes, in real life, a road is black. However, in terms of a cake, a road of black frosting is not a good idea. Unless, that is, you don’t mind looking like hobo on Halloween with cheap tooth black out wax. Nothing like 100 pictures of family […]

May 9, 2008

Pulse? Check. I am still here folks. A girl can’t leave the cyber world for a few days without returning to a rash of urgent emails from friends and family fearing the worst. A possible mass bird abduction? Death by beaking? Alas no. Just utterly busy. And, because I know you like it, in no […]

Owls. They’re a hoot.

I think I spend 75% of my life on my knees.

May 3, 2008

Scrubbing, diapering, tying shoes, kissing hurt knees, kissing…other things. And, it is this realization that brings me to this post. There is a portion of my birthday that I haven’t discussed yet. I needed to let enough time pass for the wounds to heal before I thrust the issue out for public fodder. My gorgeous […]

A tourniquet and a mango smoothie

May 2, 2008

I think, as a rule, hemophiliacs should not be allowed to work with mangos. Besides being absolutely delicious and healthy…mangos are slippery. Like, jello wrestling slippery (ahhh…college). And, even though I had been warned of this, by pretty much everyone I spoke to, I still underestimated the potential danger of a slick fruit and a […]
