10 Things I Hate About Me

Posted on

I just thought of that title so, either this list will be a piece of cake and I’ll need to make a part 2 and 3, or I will need to make some stuff up. My upper arms. My bent towards inconsistency. How my self-worth is so closely knit with 10 lbs of fat and […]

SAHM Ships Her Pants in the Big City

Posted on

Yesterday I woke up sure I was dying of colon cancer. I actually had all the signs according to the NIH.   The last month has proved to be a loose operation around here…and by “around here” specifically I mean me, my toilet, and I.  Almost a month ago I decided to do a Daniel […]

The Tortoise and the Hare

Posted on

When I think of turtles, images from Eric Carle’s books come to mind since I have a toddler and these are on my shelves and in my hands most afternoons before nap time. If I said the word “turtle” to my husband, I bet you a zillion dollars visions of pecans covered in caramel covered […]

Why?

Posted on

You might be wondering why I don’t just post my guts from this blog here on this blog. I mean, it’s not like I am two different people. I’m not two different people. I am me. I am not perfect, though something long ingrained in me thinks I have to be, but to what standard, […]

The Glutton in the Peach Tree

Posted on

One day, four years ago, I was sitting in the kitchen on the phone with a friend. I heard a chainsaw outside and looked out the side window. Much to my dismay, Jason was outside ‘trimming’ our amazing peach tree. The tree the year before had yielded hundreds of peaches, but it was too overgrown […]
