My Shitty Husband

My Shitty Husband

I didn’t realize it was my (former?) anniversary until I saw it on Facebook. “Three years ago today . . .” it said. And there was a picture of so many of us, my people, huddled together in and around and on top of the outhouse that my then fiancé carefully crafted so that it … Continue reading

The Wedding Post

The Wedding Post

Here it is, friends. It’s a long story with few words.

Two Pics That Say Everything.

What happens when you are planning a wedding, renovating a barn for said wedding, wrangling produce and an unruly flower garden, driving to soccer practice and planning for seven classes? This: See how fluffy and pretty Bella is here? She escaped and found (last night) something dead and (today) a large pile of cow shit … Continue reading

The Week of No Pants

I haven’t worn pants all week. Also, I told my friend’s daughter that the best thing about running shorts was that the underwear are built in, and much more comfy than regular undies. She looked at me like maybe it is not socially acceptable to tell people that. Whoops. If I were a cartoon character … Continue reading

A Week in Pictures

I’m sitting in my car, parked outside the music studio where Colby takes drum lessons. Mother Nature decided I was tired, so she’s watering my garden for me. It seemed like a good day to spend a paycheck. At Target, on school supplies. The irony. I had allergy testing done earlier this week. Now I … Continue reading

Summerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrtime.

Summerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrtime.

I’m not looking to jinx myself, but the living really is pretty easy. I’m sitting under my $34.99 Christmas Tree Shoppe umbrella and sweating through every stitch of clothing I have on. This is not a complaint. It’s just fact. But also, it is so hot and sunny that I have to sit under the … Continue reading

What’s New?

What’s New?

I feel like summer is a boulder rolling, rolling, rolling downhill and picking up speed. I want it to stop. STOP. Now. Thanks. My wedding registry tells me there are 57 days left until the wedding. This means only 50 something days before school begins again. *sigh* I’m not physically ready for the wedding or … Continue reading

A Hesitant Bride

By the time many women descend the aisle, they have spent their child – and early adult – hoods thinking about The Wedding. This may be a pop-culture generated idea, but it’s the idea I’ve always stuck to. I was never that girl. I didn’t pick out dresses, I didn’t think about flowers and color … Continue reading

Da dum da dum

  A little shy of four years ago, I went on my first and only blind date. Even though we ate at a place we both do NOT like and took a detour to Home Depot, we somehow wanted to see each other again. In quick succession came a coffee date, more phone time than … Continue reading
