In Which I DID THINGS

22 Aug

bonbons

I flew solo last weekend, so obviously there was much feet-up and bon-bonning… Yeah, not at all.  I kept myself as busy as humanly possible, and even did some NEAT STUFF in there. Among the more-ordinary-but-still-fun things were meals with friends, walks to the park, and iced lattes.  Cold and caffeinated?  I’ll take 6. Saturday […]

We’re Like Family

16 Jul

I mustache you a question… [Photo: barnorama.com] One of the things I always told clients I like about the large company I (sort of technically don’t) work for is that our meetings always feel like a big family reunion.  In a big room, you might not know everyone, but you know someone who brought them […]

How It’s Done (If You’re Me)

12 Jul

TSA man

This is not the kind of thing I’d normally write about, but several people have asked me how things, like, go when you fly alone with an infant.  I’m approaching level 398 in the Candy Crush Saga of infant travel, so I’m pretty good (I have no idea, I just googled how many levels there are […]

Back to School

11 Jul

mommies

I signed up for a local early childhood and family ed program today.  I’ve had one experience, so far, with meeting some “other mommies.”  There was crafting.  It made me want to stick a pair of pliers into my left eye.  And then the right one. Their outfits were not this cute. So I have […]

Oh Hi

24 May

all you can eat

So, I’ve been busy.  I mean, not THAT busy, but busy enough that I forget how to do dishes and not burn dinner and sit down and write things. But now I’m back.  To sum up: We went on a family vacation.  A cruise, in fact!  That was a big first for me, on all […]

Directions?

29 Mar

lost

As long as I’m not going to be late for something, I kind of like getting lost.  You get to see new things, and you get to figure your way out of whatever you’ve gotten into.  It’s fun!  Try it sometime! I have a general disregard for “directions” and “instructions” and “other people’s ideas.”  Okay, […]

Open For Business?

22 Mar

I need a job. So, remember when “e commerce” was getting huge and everyone was out to make their dot com fortune? Well… I don’t like to rush a trend. Case in point: I just recently obtained (thanks to my quick-thinking mother in law) a pair of those mint green skinny pants that were so […]

Getting Carded and Traveling Mit Bebe

14 Jan

Who would be offended?? I didn’t realize that I had hit the age where there were men for whom I am too old.  There was a new bartender at my regular bar (which I’m hardly ever inside of anymore, which could possibly have been my first clue) and I asked one of the guys how […]

Check, Check, and Check

11 Jan

TSA man

The TSA can’t stop me.  I’ve got my bag on the conveyor belt, my shoes in the bin, my liquids out, my ID and boarding pass handy-but-not-in-the-way, I know not to wear belts or sweatshirts, all that.  I say something nice/clever/supercharming to the dude as I go through the scanner, and then shoesbackon and I’m […]

The Lord’s Day

21 Jul

hmmm

That was the only funny cartoon I could find on the topic of the Sabbath.  Valid question! For about 3 months, I’ve been waiting for my husband to leave.  I thought he was going to leave in June, but it got pushed to July.  It’s not that I don’t want him around, you all know […]
