A kitten showed up in our backyard last week. My husband found him sticking his nose into our cat enclosure, attempting to see if my old fat cats would be interested in allowing him in to eat their food. Continue reading
I have always loved Christmas. I revel in the holiday season as a whole. I wish I could say it was for some noble, baby Jesus reason, but nope. I love all the decorations, music, and rampant consumerism. Continue reading
I remember hearing this ad nauseam from people when I was single and/or dating uber-jerks that they were subtly trying to steer me away from. Continue reading
I love the idea of dressing up for Halloween. I get these grand elaborate plans going in my head and then, due to various delays and inexcusable procrastination, I end up doing something totally mundane. Continue reading
I have long viewed work as something one does in order to afford to do what one enjoys. A job is a job, and it is a rare few who are able to be paid to do what they are passionate about. Continue reading
I bring home a substantial amount of crap. In my head, there is a vision, but the side-eye I receive until the finished product is presented is substantial. Continue reading
What kid doesn’t need a tutu? What grown-up, too, if we’re being honest, but up for grabs here is a kiddo tutu, custom made in pretty much any color, or combination of colors you would like. I will also thrown in a complimentary pair of barrettes or a headband, whichever you prefer. How cute are these little nuggets? Continue reading
I am not a trusting person. This stems from a childhood with a deadbeat biological father who made a ton of promises he didn’t intend to keep. Yes, clichéd “daddy issues.” One of the many reasons I knew my husband was the one I wanted to marry is because he is the first man I have ever trusted completely that I wasn’t related to.

Being an office manager is a tough job, folks. I know, I know, that sentence just made a substantial number of you roll your eyes so far into the back of your heads that you can see your brain. Trust me, I know. After 11 years of running the same office, I still deal with the constant questioning of what exactly it is that I do all day. I would like to clear up a few common misconceptions about the often-times most despised person in the office.
I have come to the realization that I may be slightly, and by slightly I mean incredibly, over-anxious when it comes to my animals. As such, I can be pretty judgmental when it comes to the behavior of other pet owners. I try to stay as open-minded as possible when it comes to other people’s behavior when it has no bearing on me personally, but this is one area that I just can’t, or rather, won’t.
We had a condom breakage situation last week, which meant a trip to the old pharmacy for some Plan B. It was technically Jon’s turn to buy, but he was lagging and I didn’t want any little embryo thingies taking hold in my junk, so I hit the grocery store pharmacy whilst picking up some last minute necessities for a barbecue I was headed to. Continue reading
I parted ways with a true friend this week. Someone I have spent nearly every day with in the past 13+ years; one who saw me through hard times and heartache, joy and pain. Now she’s gone, and my heart is a little bit broken. Continue reading
I went to a party this weekend with my extended family, most of whom I see very rarely. As with most large family gatherings, someone opened their stupid mouth and was a total jerk. Continue reading
I bought a new car this weekend. I also came close to slamming my head on the table of most of the dealerships we walked into. Continue reading
I said I was going to blame you. Continue reading
