7 inches. 7 heavy, penetrating, soft, dreamlike inches of… SNOW! (What did you think I was talking about, pervert?) I don’t mind being cold. As long as there is snow. I don’t mind the overcast, dreary days of winter. As long as there is snow. I don’t mind being stuck at home because of the … More 7 Inches
Two weeks after being diagnosed with a severe allergic response to limonene and fragrance mix II, my allergist added “propolis” to the list after a delayed response marker appeared on my back. Shit. Propolis is resin collected by honeybees used to fill crevices and to seal honeycombs. Fucking bee glue. Confused on why I would … More DIY Liars
So as not to leave a cryptic, whoa-is-me post and disappear for days/weeks/months on end, I thought I would share my medical findings… I am a delicate flower. My blood tests came back good. Other than an extremely low alkaline phosphatase level and a high allergy response number (duh), there was nothing that concerned my doctor. My allergen … More I Am a Flower…

For whatever reason today, the day after Thanksgiving, I feel the urge to contribute. So here goes… … More Thankful…The Day After Thanksgiving
I am all about gratitude. Every morning after I wake, I whisper “thank you” three times for getting the chance to live another day. Yeah, probably should’ve mentioned that one to my hubby; the first couple of times I started doing that, he thought I was possessed. I feel very fortunate. Every day, I reflect on three things … More Grateful This day is THROUGH
Who cares? I have asked myself that question every single time I have sat down to write a blog post, for almost a year now. Seriously, I have like 12 drafts in WordPress-land that will never see the light of day. I’ve been struggling, friends and fellow bloggers. It’s been brutal. Growing up, and even into … More Who Cares?
Isn’t that the truth? Last Sunday, I had the pleasure of spending my day with some amazing people, celebrating one of my high school friend’s 40th birthday. It was a blissfully buzzed day, and I truly enjoyed myself, reminiscing about the days of past. After arriving home that evening, the laughs continued while we caught up with my … More Religion, viCARIously Speaking – Part 2
I was recently prompted with a question: What does it mean to be a good parent? In my opinion, and simply put, scraping peanut butter off of toast. Every morning before work, I brew my coffee, get out my vitamins, and prepare my breakfast. I then wake up my youngest daughter and start getting her ready … More Scraping Peanut Butter Off of Toast
Let’s play a game… I will give you several clues, and you tell me who slipped the girl the date rape drug. Sounds fun, huh? **Clue #1 – The girl went out to grab some beers, with her male cousin and his girlfriend.** **Clue #2 – The three went to a very respectable bar, known … More A Game of Roofies
I was pumped all day for my long run tonight. 20+ miles done in 6 runs in 10 days. I was ready to #getsome! Only I wasn’t. All weekend long we were trapped inside the house awaiting the “Biggest Ice Storm in 10 Years”. It never happened. Yes, we got some great family snuggle time. … More Just… Bleh.
