My son is deployed on a Disney Cruise. Okay, not really. That's what I call deployment -- because Marine moms get to make up crap to cope with their babies in uniforms. For me, the best way is to consider... Continue reading
Yes. Life is too short to have a job that sucks your soul. I’ll be able to visit all my kids from AZ. Glad you got up and moved! Sent from my iPhone
San Diego is so much nicer than here. And affordable too. That’s why my son is staying there and his fiancé will come from the Pleasanton area. I’ll post a pic of my new house as soon as it closes. It won’t be long now! I’m most panicked about getting the dog there. She’s old and crabby. Like her mama. Sent from my iPhone
I'm trying to purge and be brutal. But a lot of it is the kids' stuff and I can't part with it, just in case. Like a heavy box of Elle's old journals. Someday, she will love looking back and seeing "Austin Mahone my future husband!" And the kids' art stuff. Old pictures. I'm way too sentimental for sure. But this post is a reminder to me to get more brutal. I'm so glad your move is over and you're in the light! I'm not called by mountains or I'd move with Elle. I hear the siren's call of a cheaper state with the same bougie Starbucks & Targets. : ) Actually, I'm excited about Wal Mart. We don't have them here close by.

My desk is a disaster. At the moment, I can't see what color it is. (It's white) but it is buried under details and lists and calendars and I'm so overwhelmed by it all. I'm moving. More on that in... Continue reading

A few months ago, I got an email from a guy named Dylan. He explained to me that I was his girlfriend's favorite author -- and I mean, is he not a keeper just knowing that? Especially when I'm not... Continue reading

About three months ago -- yes three -- I sent my son's gunnery sergeant a pack of Red Bull. Why? Because my son asked me to. Said it would be a nice gesture and the gunny was a good man.... Continue reading

I've been house hunting lately and there is a terrible new trend that makes avocado-green appliances look like the height of sophistication. That is black cabinets in a kitchen. Who, in the history of humanity, wanted a DARK kitchen? And... Continue reading
Thank you Mindy! Sent from my iPhone
I appreciate that! I have a good story to tell, but I will post it tomorrow I think. It's a good writerly story. :)

I don't remember a lot of my childhood for some odd reason. I think I had a pretty normal upbringing, but for some reason, my memory isn't the best. My best friend in high school is selling her childhood home.... Continue reading
Those are gorgeous. They will last forever. You can just get them resoled if that helps. I bought a Burberry and I have no regrets. My second. But I don’t crave another one for years that way. Sent from my iPhone
He would love that. This son is the most like me. He likes to be entertained. 😂 Sent from my iPhone

First off, you should know I tend to get fixated on certain things and not let them go. My son NOT meeting Jimmy Buffett is one of those things I cannot release "into the universe" as they say. My son,... Continue reading
I don’t think you’re missing part of the puzzle other than Andy have his toys to Bonnie. The storyline was very convoluted and really has nothing to do with the other movies. I’m not a fan of the ending. And I also thought it was a little scary for the G rating. But I enjoyed it. Loved the two new toys from the carnival. (Key & Peele) Sent from my iPhone
Hahaha always a good reason to post Darcy. I know you speak boy and you’d understand that message. 😂 Sent from my iPhone
Well I trained them. 😂 they said they learned Austen by osmosis. They all got A’s in that lit section. Sent from my iPhone

Last night, my youngest son and I went to dinner and he was telling me his girlfriend hadn't seen many movies so he was catching her up this summer. So far, they've seen "Forrest Gump" and a few other classics.... Continue reading
I’d love to go back to Italy and Charleston but otherwise I’m pretty content at home. I am getting to see Toy Story tonight. Sent from my iPhone
