I thought I'd have it all figured out by now ...

Back in 2013, I had a 1 year old baby who hated sleep. Hated it. We routinely started our days at 4:30 AM. I’m exhausted just remembering it. And as many of you are well aware, there’s not much on TV at 4:30 AM. Sesame Street would come on at... Continue reading

So I posted on Facebook today about the Fortune article about the woman patting herself on the back about realizing she used to be mean to working parents, particularly (of course) mothers. I had some harsh words for her because I think it takes a special sort of narcissism to... Continue reading

One of my New Year's resolutions was to start writing again. I walk around with half-formed ideas and sentences in my head, and it's time to start writing them down again. I may be the only one who benefits from this, but here we go. I figured a 2014 recap... Continue reading

For many of you following along on Twitter and Instagram, you know I just finished a 3-day juice cleanse. Why did I do a juice cleanse? Curiosity, mostly. I didn't think I would rid my body of toxins or lose any significant weight, but I was hoping that consciously putting... Continue reading

40. Forty. 4-0. There it is. I thought it would be momentous. To quote the incomparable Samantha Baker: "I just thought that turning [40] would be so major that I'd wake up with an improved mental state that would show on my face." But it just kind of is. And... Continue reading

I was trying to come up with some reflections in what has been a pretty crazy year, but I was having trouble lassoing it into coherence. When up popped the lovely Laura's end of the year blog post, which provided me with some helpful prompts. So here we go. 1.... Continue reading

1) Blather Away I probably should have made this into a full post, but I've been meaning to say it for a while, so this will have to do. I'm so thankful everyday for my Twitter ladies. You guys rock. I'm also quite thankful for The Blathering trip where I... Continue reading

I'm actually not much of a baby person. I much prefer small people who walk and talk. Sure, I can appreciate a gummy grin and a hammy thigh, but when Nathan and I contemplated having a second child, we felt that the baby phase was something merely to be endured.... Continue reading

I have this crazy idea that I should always be able to do everything myself without help. I guess this worked OK when I was single, but as a married lady with two kids, it can be ... challenging. That sound you hear is my husband breaking his neck nodding... Continue reading

"The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what we share with someone else when we're uncool." - Philip Seymour Hoffman as Lester Bangs in Almost Famous I spend way too much time worrying about what other people think about me. It's embarrassing to admit, really. One of the... Continue reading

Blogging has been a bit non-existent recently. I have a lot of stuff going on at work (some good, some not so good), and that stress is taking up some prime real estate in my brain these days. And it's not stuff I can or would blog about, so it's... Continue reading

It has been a crazy couple of weeks, but I have a few random thoughts bumping around in what's left of my brain. I'm pretty sure I've had cheese and crackers for dinner approximately 47 of the past 50 nights. This might make me a serial killer. Or it could... Continue reading

My house is trying to kill me. I can't go into any room without seeing something (or several things) that need to be done. The closets that need to be cleaned out, the tupperware that needs to be organized, the refigerator full of aging condiments, the cluttered shelves, the overflowing... Continue reading

I am a decent cook. Not an over the top gourmet chef, but I can put a good meal on the table and have been responsible for several holiday dinners, including Thanksgiving (though we had beef tenderloin instead of turkey because yum). I say that by way of introduction because... Continue reading

A couple of years ago, Nathan, Lia and I went to our church's annual retreat. It was just after we found out I was pregnant with Gabriel. I must have been about 6 weeks along. The retreat is held at an old fashioned mountain resort. It's more social than church... Continue reading

I have no words for all the events of this week. It's just too much. Bombs, poison, total failure by our elected leaders, explosions, flooding... So, pick your poison. We'll deal with this anyway we can. Words: Via the Onion Cuteness: Via Huffington Post Wine: Tonight I'm opting for a... Continue reading

I thought I might have a fluffy blog post about the trials and tribulations of running the daycare bake sale (short version: someone else can do it next time), but then I read this column, and started thinking. I've always considered myself fortunate to have never come across "real discrimination"... Continue reading

This post was inspired by this post over at She Likes Purple and this one at XO Jane. It seemed like an easy way to ease into a blog post. Ha! I picked yesterday for this exercise (April 2, 2013), and the gods had more of an adventure in store.... Continue reading

Welcome. I have no idea what we're doing here. Good. Got that out of the way. So ... we'll figure it out together. I do this thing where I assume everyone has it all figured out except me. Like I'm the only one muddling through without a grand plan for... Continue reading
