The world is falling in on me right now. I'm not suicidal, but I'd be okay with just blinking out of existence like I was never here. And don't go all 'It's a Wonderful Life' on me. Something is wrong... Continue reading

Here I am again. It has been years, hasn't it? But, I just can't leave it be. I've tried starting new blogs, new websites, tried on numerous domain names. In the end, there is no place like home. It is... Continue reading

October. How can it be almost over? I feel like it just began. One thing I've always said about California is that I never get used to the roses blooming in wild abandon in the months that they would have... Continue reading

For some reason my Grandma popped into my head tonight. She does that alot. If you've ever read anything I've written about her, you know that she was the prime example of unconditional familial love in my childhood and the... Continue reading

Okay, I just gotta throw this out there for a little as a little sociocultural chronological marker: This fall has been a season of the 'new', 'sexy' Miley Cyrus splashing her twerking twatty self all over the Top 10 Pop... Continue reading

Family is difficult. My middle sister has disowned me. My mom and dad think my youngest sister is either having mental problems and/or on drugs. I talk with her almost every day and I would think after my dad went... Continue reading

My excuses: uh, we had a really freaking short summer. I don't even know what happened to it. I'm packing up the house. Yep. Gonna make sure we can flee the country in a weekend if need be. Okay, maybe... Continue reading

Maybe I am crazy. What other explanation can there be? I think I am a wanderer in my heart and in my feet. I am a square peg trying to do the "right" thing. I have a wonderful husband and... Continue reading

Music lives in the moment. A note resonates and then is gone, yet somehow they gather to create a song. We would do well to live our lives as if they were a great score, a masterpiece, the notes of... Continue reading

Time is infuriating. In someways I still feel like an 8-year-old- like fundamentally unchanged. Yet, I know a great deal of time has passed in this life of mine. Yes, yesterday was my birthday. I do feel stronger, more confident,... Continue reading

So, not so long ago I was feeling stuck in a hair rut. You know how that goes, right? So, I dyed my hair back as close to my natural color as I could find. I loved it so of... Continue reading

I've been in building mode. Honestly, I've loved this house as much as I've hated it. When we moved in it looked like it hadn't been touched(except for the cheap renter's linoleum on the bathroom floor) since the 1960's? But... Continue reading

When I think of Aaron Sorkin, I think of "The West Wing". Dean and I watched "The West Wing" the entire time it was on air. Well, today I discovered "The Newsroom"- a series by HBO, also produced by Aaron... Continue reading

I remember 7th and 8th grade. Yeah, they pretty much sucked. I think they suck for everyone, though. Maybe I am a sucky mom for trying to get you to read books I like and wear cute clothes. I can't... Continue reading

I suppose I'm feeling a little introspective, mix that with a sprinkle of self-indulgencence and well... here we go. It is between two and three in the morning. My stomach is bothering me, which is nothing new, but my usual... Continue reading

I like making playlists. I am one of those people who will find a 'favorite song' and put it on loop until I hate it. But so it goes... I think it is because I like to sing along with... Continue reading

Bist Du Bei Mir was probably one of my favorite pieces of music that I learned back in high school. My vocal coach said I was like a myna bird and she didn't usually let students butcher music in German.... Continue reading

So, hi! The doc that scoped me and biopsied my stomach and esophagus managed not to perforate either, causing me to bleed internally in a profuse manner eventually degenerating into DIC and dying. So that's good, that, you know, I'm... Continue reading

Today was the first day in a while that I was actually vertical for a significant period of time. I'll get to that. Warning: totally random pictures ahead (may be repeats). Ave ascending to the first place platform at a... Continue reading

I am so ready for it to be 2012 and look, here we are! As Anne Shirley might say, "A whole new year, with no mistakes in it!" Yet. I'm chipper. First off, the house is really coming along- all... Continue reading

Me, too, darling. Me, too. I so get the sunny kitchen thing. So glad you updated- and yes, you should come back.

Let me know how they work out- I would totally be in the market- I can NEVER seem to get warm. (How sad since I live in California).

Hey, you know, I've decided that if a Victoria's Secret model doesn't look good in it then I'm definitely not going to. I was browsing through the recently delivered swim issue and *falls down laughing*... Okay, first off, pretty sure... Continue reading
