The Art of Garage Sales

I feel like my personalities change with the seasons. Like, in the spring, Andy knows it's time for Self-Reflective Brittany who wants to do things like try out a new religion or host an exchange student. I'm pretty sure Jesus was reborn during this time, so I'm like, let's start meditating and opening our home [...]

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, [...]

Welcome to February

I'm like a bull in a china shop this week. I keep knocking stuff over with my actions and feelings and giant feet. I keep apologizing for things, and I think I am annoying people with my apologies, so I apologize again, and then they stop answering my texts and I'm like, where is everybody? [...]

I am working on a post about my weight, and it's shockingly difficult. Plus, I am hungry and craving day old birthday cake; I hate that we had all our kids in stupid April. But, I have been having bursts of brain activity in my own, personal built in tumblr site, Amuse Bouche, so I [...]

Metaphors get weirder after 2am.

I haven't been sleeping well the last few months, and it's driving Andy crazy, because when I can't sleep, I feel like he should also not want to sleep, so he can talk to me about stuff until he bores me enough that I pass out. Andy hates this idea, mostly because he has to [...]

This is  a totally true story, though I changed the name of the person involved so I don't get assassinated or my voter card taken away, if they even do that, I'm not sure, but I think really stupid people vote all the time, so I should probably be fine.  Plus, wouldn't the REAL punishment NOT being [...]

The Most Productive Worst Day Ever.

By |2017-06-14T13:27:11-05:00August 24th, 2011|Mental Health, Parenting|

I like to pretend that I am in charge of absolutely everything that happens in this house. With the exception of things that take place on the phone, like scheduling appointments or ordering Indian food, I have it handled. I plan the vacations, I pick out the furniture, I make the dinner. It's partially because [...]

Time Apart.

After 15 years together, Andy and I have our social cues down pat. In college we had code words, but those were mostly just creative ways of saying, OMG let's go have pre-marital sex in your dorm room before your roommate gets home from Live Action Role Playing night at the Union. Why yes, I [...]

Brittany in Wonderland.

I have been a party to no less than two interventions thrown on my behalf. First of all, they are nowhere near as fun as they make them look on tv.  You would think if you are going to gather a group of people to collectively tell you you suck ass at something, there would [...]
