I'm on the third big revision of my book and I'm at that point where I feel like I'm slogging against the current. And by current, I mean me. I am the fricking current. I know what I want the... Continue reading

My house is full of moths. I think there's a moth portal in here somewhere. (That's like a fairy portal, but for moths. But I don't know what those look like so I can't find it. It probably looks like... Continue reading

I was groggy this morning and this video woke me up. Plus, their PR emails are entertaining. Yes, I do reward creativity. Continue reading

So I finished my novel in January and I'm working on revisions. I keep running into articles and comments on the web that, frankly, are frustrating me. Mainly because I view many of these conversations as opinions on style preferences,... Continue reading

So I've been working on my novel. I know, right!? Finally! And this is where I start blogging again so I can blather about nonsensical shit for fifteen minutes or so while my brain reboots. I am about 30,000 words... Continue reading

There have been the most wonderful metaphors popping up in music lately. Just lovely turns of phrases. And it's not always obvious, you have to listen closely and they come up in unexpected places. But I love when a sad... Continue reading

I never understand why people don't set zombies on fire. I mean, you got a whole mess of them trapped somewhere, fairly nonflammable, and people try to pick them off one by one. Roast them! They can only keep moving... Continue reading

Lately insects of varied flying ability have been swooping into my face for unknown reasons. They have done so with forceful persistence and periodic consistency. This is not an affliction I've been burdened with in the past. Like, you know... Continue reading

I wrote this as a note to myself. I forget for what exactly, clearly I was irritated, probably something distracting me from the task at hand. But now I feel this should be emblazoned on a t-shirt and/or needs to... Continue reading

I am also sideways. Because auto correct on computers has gone too far. WHO'S IDIOT PROOF NOW COMPUTER?! Continue reading

Massive writer's block. Just stymied. Or I've got too much floating in my brain and I can't organize it. But I did decide to shut off my syndication feed. I'd rather throw my words out into the black emptiness and... Continue reading

We installed a Little Free Library in our front yard! I fell in love with this program when I heard about it. I asked for the library for my birthday. I guess we could have built our own; there are... Continue reading

It's only been sleeping. It's not like I didn't have anything to talk about, but I was sort of really tired of all I had to talk about. You know? But that's OK, it's time to wake up now. We... Continue reading

I do this thing when I'm sick where I sit on the couch and plague myself with guilt. I look at what needs to be cleaned, I look at all the emails I should answer, I think about my To... Continue reading

Actually it was a piece of rebar. It was sticking out of one of those cement blocks you find at the end of parking spaces. I don't even know what they're called. Bumpers? Pylons? Whatever. It ripped off my bumper.... Continue reading

The morning routine. I shuffle to the bathroom, relieve myself, turn on the water for the shower to heat up, and then stare bleary-eyed at the scale as I inch it around the floor to find the perfect "weighing spot"... Continue reading

Not that I can think of a damn thing to say at the moment but that's always the way of it. In the middle of the night I will be SO eloquent, omg. I am brills at 2:00am! After midnight... Continue reading

I have the best conversations with random strangers in stores. I was just chatting with this woman in Target about how our kids turn into spoiled rotten terrors when we take them to Disneyland. She said her friend took her... Continue reading

A couple of years ago when Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion came out I quickly downloaded the book to my kindle and tore through it. Partly because I hadn't heard the phrase "fast fashion" previously and I... Continue reading

Swamped. Utterly swamped. PTA is a major job. And on top of that, my computer has crashed every time I've tried to post to my blog. It's kind of crazy. It's like my browser has a beef with Typepad. I... Continue reading

I think I might have accidentally taken an extra beta blocker today. I don't think it will do anything bad (I think) but I'm feeling awfully sleepy. I might have only taken one pill, and it could just be that's... Continue reading

Alright, so something big has happened... has been happening, really, over the last few months, and I haven't been able to talk about it before now. If I was a more attentive blogger (and perhaps a more successful one) I... Continue reading

Here's a fun project for a summer's day... our household ended up with a lot of old crocs. See, Chance likes to wear more than one color at a time, like one red croc and one green croc, so we'll... Continue reading

I am nothing but a languishing pile of swollen tissues. So I've come to the conclusion that being in your 40s is definitely a mixed bag. On the one hand you've got more experience, confidence, and usually a little more... Continue reading
