You’re Not Supposed To Be Drinking

8 Mar

stressed

I had a job about a decade ago that caused me to stress out, gain weight, and crab at anyone inside of a 13-mile radius.  It’s a complete wonder that my roommates from those years still love me, but they claim to.  They may still have drinking meetings about me, though, who knows.  Anyway, I […]

Very Recent History: Farming Is No Vacation

22 Jan

coco

“Vacation” means different things to different people at different times in their lives.  To me, right now, it apparently means leaving my own couch and living room and traveling 1200 miles to sit on my mom’s couch in her living room.  (My dad has his own living room for a few months, and no, he’s […]

Didn’t See THAT Coming

hobby

I like to start new hobbies. That’s all. I started knitting/crocheting once.  Now I have a bag full of yarn.  I started making jewelry once.  I actually made a bunch of it as gifts for people who helped out with our wedding, but now I have a bag of beads and tools.  I started sewing […]

New Year’s Revolutions

31 Dec

biebs

I feel like they are more like “revolutions” because of their cyclical nature.  How many times can I resolve to lose 5 pounds or stop being late all the time or stop toying with the pedestrians before it’s not really a “resolution” anymore?  Whatever, it’s tradition.  Here we go with the mostly old, occasionally new, […]

Yeah, well it’s snot

pressy

I moved to Minnesota in 1998 to go to college.  When I came back from Christmas break that first year, I ran into a guy I knew at the airport shuttle dropoff site.  We checked our mailboxes and headed back to the dorm.  The whole time we were walking, I kept rubbing at my nose. […]

Very Recent History: Obsessive Obsessive Disorder

18 Dec

gman

I feel like I’ve been in pursuit of various things lately, with maybe a little more anticipation than these things warrant.  But you can’t know if something is great until you try it, and anticipation is so fun!  So I obsess.  Sometimes my obsessions lead me to greatness, sometimes they lead me to yellow water. […]

Greased Lightning

14 Dec

grease

My husband and I are just like Danny and Sandy, except I’m the dark, mysterious one and he’s the blond with the legs.  Other than that, though, it’s the same.  Very little conversation, only singing and dancing. But really, I’m pretty into grease right now.  Not ONLY does it make bad food taste good, it […]

Very Recent History

30 Oct

not

I used to get all my best ideas in the shower.  Since I retired, though, I don’t seem to have any ideas, nevermind good ones.  Until today. Most of the blogs I follow do some kind of weekly summary.  I think I’ll start doing this, too (shower genius), since my life now seems to happen […]

Fruits & Veggies

23 Oct

mwah

This 5K thing may not hold a permanent spot in my life.  I haven’t yet learned to listen to pain until it completely stops me, so I’ve been limping around for the last couple of days (no, I have not completely dropped the baby) swearing up and down that I WILL DO THIS 5K THIS […]

Achievements and Discoveries

17 Oct

of course!

I haven’t failed yet.  I finished the first week of training in – get this – a week. I even got two compliments on these hilarious shoes today!  One from a cool girl on a bike who was wearing the right clothes (butnottryingtoohard) and one from a little old lady whose day was CLEARLY made […]
