And So She Writes...

Sometimes I get asked how I write.  (Not that often, really, because let’s be honest–who actually cares?). But wait–what?? What do you mean, “how do I write?” Like, there’s supposed to be a method?  Shoot, I knew I was getting this whole thing wrong… Basically, when I realize I have a post or an assignment due, I maturely

Dog-Sitter of the Year

Recently, a friend asked me watch her dog while her family took a vacay down to Disney.  No problem. Then a week later, another friend asked me to watch her dog while her friend took a vacay down to Disney. We’re on it. Consider our house the vehicle to making Magical Kingdom dreams come true for the

The Cookie Jar Parable

In this world, it can be a little tricky to meet people you connect with.  Finding those kindred spirits?  What a rare gift. I can’t say how blessed I feel that my path crossed with Stephanie Giese, the powerhouse behind Binkies and Briefcases, a while back through this blogging world.  Steph is a breath of fresh

The Missing Gene

I’m struggling right now.  The kids, and all their stuffed princesses and shooting neon Nerf guns are adorable, but…but…this mama is TIRED.  You see, I think I am missing some gene… The gene that has endless patience with 2 yr. old fits over why Mommy makes her wear shoes when the temps are in the

Situation Friday

Does anyone even read this blog on a Friday?  Please speak up if you do.*  Makes me feel less like I’m senselessly pouring my heart out into dead silence, which can never be a bad thing, right? In any case, it is Friday. Since I don’t ever leave my house, the day of the week

When You Give a Husband a Beekeeping Suit...

With the official month-to-Valentine’s countdown on, there’re going to be a lot of floaty hearts and cupids whizzing around.  Fantastic if these shades of red and pink do it for some couples, but I’ve discovered the real secret to marital success–at least my marriage success.  For us, there are two careful components to keeping that

The Paris Architect

I crush on books.  I stalk them.  I love them.  Ginormous geek alert: when I get my Goodreads.com monthly new release update e-mail, my fingers shake a bit with anticipation as I click over to find the treasures that await. I was pretty stoked a few months ago when I heard about The Paris Architect,

The #Downton Tweet Storm is Unleashed!

The month of January and I aren’t besties.  Icy tundras aren’t really my thing, and I’m sort of a fan of circulation in my body. Regardless, maybe there is a host of delights about this year’s kickstart, but right now my brain is too frozen by the recent sub-zero temps to think of anything except

The Rough Thumb

Last week, during the height of our Sickness Apocalypse, my daughter WHO NEVER SITS, somehow landed herself on my lap for a minute. Was I being punked? Had someone traded out the little girl for a look-alike angel while I had been scrubbing a toilet? In any case, we cozied up on the couch to
