Groove, mojo—whatever you want to call it, I fear I’ve lost it. Perhaps forever, because I am not so sure I will be as lucky as Stella and get mine back. After all, how exactly does one go about getting their mojo back? Does it require highlights, tanning beds, shopping sprees, Botox, and trips to … Continue reading If I ever had a mojo, I think I’ve lost it
Punxsy Phil was right
I never thought I’d say this in February, but it’s starting to feel like spring! (Yet another reason February is better than January--just had to say it). Okay, so it’s unseasonably warm for February... and I am loving every minute of it. The weather, however, isn’t the only thing that has me feeling like spring … Continue reading Punxsy Phil was right
Life’s a Beach (Not really)
Just call me the reluctant dragon. Reluctant because I am, and dragon, because I’m pretty sure my husband sees fire coming from my nostrils when I get like this. You see, a very wonderful thing has happened: my husband has been given a shot at his dream to be a small business owner, which means … Continue reading Life’s a Beach (Not really)
I have the cutest kids!
Yesterday was one of "those" days. My dog was eating crayons, (the orange ones in case you were wondering); a bottle I gave Landon in an effort to streamline our dinner routine leaked all over the high chair, the floor, me, him, our dog; and when ripping a diaper from my upright two-year old anxiously … Continue reading I have the cutest kids!
Adults drink coffee, so I guess that makes me one
Well, folks. It's here. The second cup of coffee. I am officially an adult. Real adults drink, like, whole pots of coffee, don't they? They guzzle it like gasoline from water bottle sized travel mugs sitting in traffic on their way to work. Arriving at the office they pour another cup just to "sip" on … Continue reading Adults drink coffee, so I guess that makes me one

The bad thing about living in the middle of a small town is that the heater in my car never warms up, so I ride the whole ten minutes there and back hunched over and shivering with one … Continue reading Instantize me!

Here's eleven reasons why: February Admittedly, February isn't much better. Cold, snowy, more of the same. It is, however, three days shorter, … Continue reading 11 reasons I could live without January
life or something like it
"The spiritual life is first of all a life. It is not merely something to be known and studied, it is to be lived." Thomas Merton I read that quote this morning on the page of a book my husband is reading that was left open in the bathroom. It's a good quote, and … Continue reading life or something like it
Moments of Greatness
In every life there are moments of greatness. Weddings, graduations, births, and promotions automatically come to mind. But there are other much less "significant" moments in life that sometimes surpass or at least rival these major life events. Moments when you close your eyes and try to etch those minutes and seconds into your memory … Continue reading Moments of Greatness
Yesterday, I found puzzle pieces in the dishwasher. The cardboard cutouts were soaked and lying in pieces near the drain. Nice. Today, my right eye has been twitching for want of sleep. I even closed my eyes for a second while driving. That's bad I know, but have you ever done that? Your eyes are … Continue reading Bottom’s Up!
