But Seriously.

Well, here we are again. This is probably the third or fourth time in the last two years that I have done a mea culpa for disappearing and then come back, vowing to blog on the regular again. Yet, here I am. This time, it’s going to be different, dammit! I’m going to blog at […]

Obligatory 6-16-16 Post

Aaahhhh I missed some of the earlier ones this year, but not this one! I have two other posts that I have been working on, so I don’t have anything specifically to talk about in this one. But, what better time than to share a picture of this awesome dress that my coworkers and I […]

Two for the Show

Well, it finally happened. After three years of plucking my little gray hair (I even changed my part to hide it!), two more finally grew back in its place… Put a fork in me. It’s all over now… (jk) Tweet

Episode XXXII: Reclaiming Me

Birthday Dinner Celebrating 32! Forgive me, readers, for I have sinned. It’s been three months since my last post. To be honest, I am forcing myself to write this post. Seriously. It took me an hour to write the first 129 words of this post. That’s pretty good considering it has taken me six months […]

Where Have I Been?

So, I went and disappeared again for a while. I didn’t do it intentionally. I’ve just been busy. About six months ago, I started doing some part-time freelance work. It was mostly manageable stuff, but I wasn’t making money as fast as I was hoping. Then, about six weeks ago, just as I was thinking […]

Man, I have been a huge slacker again. Truth is, I’m in a blogging funk. I have no shortage of things to write about and have had a lot of moments in the shower where I’ve gone, “Oh, I should do a blog post about this…” But then, real life stuff always wins out. Darn […]

Obligatory 12-13-14 Post

I almost missed it, but I made it! Zachary turned six months today and my goodness, I can’t believe it’s been six months since he was born. On one hand, it’s crazy that he’s six-months-old already but on a much stronger hand, it feels like he’s been with us forever and it’s hard to fathom […]

Why Must a New Baby be a Negative?

[Note: I said something about this subject in my last post, but wanted to expand a little bit. This post is not for all of the people who left me nice comments here or on Twitter, but merely to get something that’s been bugging me for the past eight months off of my chest. I […]

Autocomplete Map of Each State

I love these map posts that go around the Internet.  I don’t know the accuracy of any of them, but they’re fun to look at and speculate about.  This one takes the Google autocomplete results when you ask why a certain state is so…?  I did test it out and type out, “Why is North […]
