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
You can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family. Sometimes that sucks. Continue reading
