I can’t even believe this is true, but I’ve been blogging for 6 years now. SIX! I realize this type of statement is the kind of things people (like me) start to say at a certain age when time suddenly starts flying by at record speed and they can’t believe the cashier at the register didn’t even card them when they bought wine and, even … Continue reading The SECRET REASON I’ve been a half-assed blogger all of these years.
After the holidays most of us are familiar with the post-celebratory letdown. The saying goodbye to the getting together, the laughing, the gaming, the feasting. The saying hello to the unpacking, the de-tagging, the washing-drying-folding-and-putting-awaying.

My grandmother recently drove an hour and a half away to get her hair done at a salon … Continue reading Nine Ways I’m Going To Be Annoying When I’m Old (Which Also Happen To Be Why I’m Annoying Now)
Ok, I’m going to be a little boasty, braggy, hippity hoppity. I can’t help it, I just might explode – this week has been sort of amazing. I have had a lot of horribly dark weeks, and this one is shiny and bright and remarkably different than those. FRIDAY: I am starting a support program for students on the Autism Spectrum at the high school I work in – we will be piloting it, … Continue reading Call Me a Fanfaron This Week
Laura, at Catharsis, is amazing. Hopefully by now, you already know this. She compiles so many awards, and throws me a bone now and then. I roll over. Shake hands. Beg her to scratch me behind the ears (or under my shoulder blades…ahhh). When I originally saw this award, I thought it was the “777” award, which I especially enjoyed, since that was the date in which … Continue reading Lucky 7’s
Oooh, hooray. Kreative Blogger Award. Thank you, screwed up creative kreativ brain for giving me all of these effed up dreams to blog about. Laura, at Catharsis, gave me this award (she is just SHOWERING me with love these days, people. I’m starting to get worried that she’s buttering me up, so she can ask me for a big favor one of these days soon…like … Continue reading Izzint Bloggeen Grate?
Oh, lucky me! Laura, at Catharsis, has chosen to honor me with The Versatile Blogger Award. Don’t tell my grandma, she’ll get the story confused and start telling everyone she knows that I won a Pulitzer. Rules for accepting the award include showcasing the award on my blog (see above), linking back to the person who awarded me with the award (click! Laura’s blog is … Continue reading Proof That Not Only My Mother Reads My Blog. And, This Other Person LIKES It.
