Hello, World, As pretty much anyone who would likely stumble onto my site will know, Hurricane Harvey came and left devastation as it went. Southeast Texas, Houston, East Texas, and Louisiana have all felt its power and its wrath. Let me start by saying that we’re fine. We blessedly were spared. All of my closest friends are fine, my family is fine, and my husband’s family was mostly untouched. We all had a few scary nights, though. I never thought… Read more »

I don’t know why, but I always want to greet you guys as “Party People” these days. I don’t know where it came from. I don’t know why it’s happening, but it is. So, good morning, party people! We are on the cusp of a three day weekend and it feels phenomenal. We don’t have many plans, but the plans we do have are spectacular. Gonna relax a lot. Gonna do some organizing and some chores. Gonna talk to Roxanne… Read more »

Good Morning! Not much to report over here, other than that I was almost attacked, blinded, and murdered yesterday. NBD. Okay, okay, I might be speaking out of my irrational fear, but let me set the scene: Off and on for at least a week, we’ve been hearing birds very loudly chirping. Like, incessantly chirping. Like, maybe they’re fighting or something? kind of chirping. But, whatever, eventually they fly away. The Hubster said that one day he was sure they… Read more »

This might be the most controversial thing I’ve ever put on my blog, but I am going to say it anyway. I’m trying to view Monday as a gift. Trying. Praying. I woke up in a horrible mood. Tired, grumpy, so not ready for another week in the daily grind. My fuel tank feels empty and more than anything else, like the toddler I secretly am, I just don’t wanna. However, my prayer this morning was and is to be… Read more »

Yep. This about sums it up: T.G.I.F. I’m so, so excited for this weekend! I’m just going to piddle around and do housework, mostly, but I’m also going to…   Write! Also, I had finished this little post with talking about wanting a chiffon skirt and loving Cinderella, and then WordPress deleted it. It was a magical treasure and we’ll all mourn it. I’m just going to go. I hope you have an amazing weekend full of good food, lots… Read more »

Good Morning, Party People! It’s Wednesday! How are we feeling? I should so totally be a hype man. Is that a career? This would totally be me: Anyway, all is rather quiet on the Western front. I’ve been meeting deadlines like a champ. I did yoga yesterday. I’m just trying to live my life. I seriously have nothing to report. I haven’t been sleeping well, so my mind isn’t being very creatively forthcoming. I’ve mostly been Pinteresting “how to clean… Read more »

The good news is, I feel almost human again. Almost. I guess I’m adjusting to the time change, even though It’s pitch black all morning long and it has seemingly confused everything my body knew to be true. But whatever. I know I’m not the only one, since everyone at the office is dragging around and drinking two afternoon coffees, but I am completely thrown. I can’t wake up on time for the first time in months, I’m completely off… Read more »

What do you do if it’s both a rainy day AND a Monday? Do you get double down? Or do you flip back ’round to up? These are the questions that haunt me. These are the days of our lives. Also, what do you do when Daylight Saving Time has you straight trippin’? I’m so stinking tired, since my body technically woke up at 4:15 this morning. And technically fell asleep around 11:45. It’s like the government just likes to… Read more »

Every single time I sit down to write a post, I have to fight the urge to open with “Greetings, Earthlings.” Every. Single. Time. I don’t know why. I don’t find it particularly clever or even enjoyable. It’s just there, in the front of my mind. It’s like the one summer when I had the national anthem stuck in my head. For pretty much the entire summer. Could not stop singing it. So damn patriotic/clinically insane. Anyway, I just wanted… Read more »

Hello again, world. Did you know that is is Friday Eve? Because it is! Everyone celebrate! This has been an off the chain, insane week for me. Let me clue you in… (Insert Wayne’s World wavy arms and “doodly-doo noises.) As I mentioned, Monday I had dinner with my lovely Patricia. And it was all laugh, laugh, eat, plan, talk, laugh, coffeecoffeecoffee, etc. It was a delightful time, and ’round about 10:00, we decided we needed to leave. We had parked… Read more »
