What Do You Run From?

11 Oct


I’ve run from lots of things.  I have run from confrontation.  My husband is the first person I managed to have an argument with in which I did things like Use Words and Not Slam Doors.  So we got married.  Then I worked for a lady who I love like family, but she is the […]

Help… I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up…

23 Aug


I never thought this lady was that convincing… nevermind that she’s barely 60.  Anyway… I’m not big into new year’s resolutions, but every year I usually have some kind of vague goal.  There has been “The Year of Fitness.”  More than a few times, I’ve celebrated “The Year of the Dollar.”  In my later 20s […]

omg omg omg

I’ve been diagnosed by a Real Doctor as a big fat wimp.  Sissypants.  Merriam Webster says here that a variant of sissypants is sissybritches.  I like that one. The word she threw at me was “vasovagal.”  I googled it.  The Mayo Clinic defines it like this: “Vasovagal syncope (vay-zo-VAY-gul SING-cuh-pee) is the most common cause […]

Down the Rabbit Hole

4 Apr


I’ve got a new adventure. I’ve been trying to get rid of junk for a while.  Well, now I’ve committed.  We’re downsizing.  No, that’s not a strong enough word.  We’re undersizing.  Subsizing?  Centeroftheearthsizing… The 24oo square feet we’ve not been filling for the last couple of years is going to go to some people who […]

It’s All In Your Head

26 Oct

bad at it

      It started like this…  Me: “Your car is pulling to the left.”  Him: “Yeah, I noticed that, but you know how sometimes you think it’s in your head?”  Me: “No.  It’s either pulling or it isn’t.”  Him: “_____.” In our defense, this was at 5am on the way to the airport, so […]

It Takes A Village

23 Oct


I vacuumed.  The spaghetti squash is out of the oven.  The house has a cozy, fall thing going, and the game is on.  Time to write!  My thoughts keep wandering within the subject of purpose/intention/self/others (yes, that is A subject), so this might be a little scattered. I remember seeing “Think global, act local” on […]

Big Fat Jerks!

30 Sep


You know those guys that stand on the corner and want to talk to you about the environment when you’re racing back to work after grabbing a 32-ounce depth charge because you’ve got a meeting in 12 seconds and there’s no way you’re going to get through it easily?  Well, they are on my corner.  […]

Stop This World

22 Sep


“Stop This World” is a great little number by one Diana Krall.  Did you know she’s married to Elvis Costello?  So much good music.  I probably heard this song for the first time 7 or 8 years ago, and I think about it a lot.  I don’t really know what any of the words are […]

Very Busy and Important

24 Aug

working wife

Me.  I am very busy and important.  Okay, maybe just busy…  This week goes down in history (I’m probably forgetting some weeks in history) as the Busiest Week Ever.  It’s kind of a funny story… Normally, I work Tuesday-Saturday, as I mentioned in my last post.  This week, however, we were going to be closed […]


22 Aug

I have a strange “weekend” setup.  Usually it starts around 5 on Saturday, and ends with work on Tuesday morning.  The Saturday night bit feels like a weekend, but the rest of it feels like a weekbeginning, filled with preparations for my upcoming workweek.  Sometimes that means cooking, sometimes it means cleaning, and it always […]
