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 »

Hello, Beautiful People! I made an extra delicious bulletproof coffee this morning, so I’m pretty jazzed. That being said, it’s still Monday, and somehow, seemingly while I was living life, the world decided it was March. Excuse me? February went by so quickly! I took an unexpected blogging break (sorry about that), but I’m back now, and with a plan. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking and plotting and planning and attempting to structure my life. And as much… Read more »

Greetings, Earthlings. What it do? I had a pretty fabulous weekend. Saturday was full of writing, weeping, and gnashing of teeth until I finally published a little short story. You can read it here, if you want. I spent the rest of the day with my Valentine. We went out to dinner at Black Walnut Cafe, which is where we had our first date. And where we went last Valentine’s Day. Neither of us can remember what we did for… 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 »

Happy (?) Monday, my fine-feathered friends. I hope these words find you well-rested and ready for another week. Won’t comment on my own mental state. Nope. Not today. Just gonna roll on by and change the subject. Food. We like it. I make it. Here’s what I got going on the menu this week. Also, I have no idea where this clipped and grammatically incorrect voice is coming from. Oh, wait, probably Hell on Wheels. Mmmmhmmm. Meal 1: Last night I… Read more »

It’s not a secret. In fact, I’ve definitely alluded to the fact that I’ve been in kind of a funk/depression about writing since my birthday. I’ve flirted with quitting forever, but writing won’t let me give up. It’s like drugs or Diet Coke. I’ve just felt like time is moving too quickly and all I do is my dumb job and suddenly I’m 26 and I have nothing (artistically speaking) to show for my time. And then I feel like… Read more »

Welcome, friends. We made it! I am so excited for this year. I truly believe it can and WILL be the best year ever. Of course I couldn’t let today fly by without the obligatory resolutions post. So here we are. In the past, I’ve made over 9,000 goals and tried my darndest to accomplish them, but, inevitably, failed. So this year, I’m boiling it down to overall goal categories that I want to focus on, and giving examples of each…. Read more »

In case you were wondering, all the fingernail polish on my right pointer finger chipped off in the shower this morning. I don’t know how, or why, or even when. Considering all my other fingernails have almost all of the polish still on them, I am a touch flabbergasted. I’m also flabbergasted that I put things like throw pillows and candlesticks on my Christmas list when we don’t even have a kitchen trash can yet. I’ve got to sort out… Read more »

Happy Friday Eve. I’m feeling a touch better. Probably because I made a (low carb, sugar free, gluten free) pumpkin cake last night and I am eating it for breakfast. Recipe here, if you’re curious. I did have a stress dream about work last night, which is no bueno, but I will survive. It’s been an interesting experiment at work. For the past two weeks, I’ve been forcing myself to leave at 5. And while on one hand, I feel… Read more »

Guten Morgen! (Jimmy Borgen… AHHHH curse my wretched brain!) I know the chill in the air is just because The Hubbit likes to keep things arctic around here, but I like to pretend it’s fall. In my house. Whatever, it works for me. I’m ignoring the fact that I think it got into the 80s yesterday. Maybe the 90s. I didn’t pay attention, because it hurts me. There is a lovely rumor of a cool front, though. That’s right. In… Read more »
