Nothing quite like starting the day with a jolt of realization that the alarm didn't go off and your teenager just missed his bus. After that whirlwind, I feel I truly earned this cup of coffee. I think the bright side of both of us oversleeping is that it means that I fell asleep last night.

Lego Landfill
There's something really satisfying about vacuuming up a couple of errant Legos from the corners of my living room. Related: What percentage of our current landfills consists of Lego blocks? On average, since my eldest was about 10 (the time I stopped frett...

Sometimes, all I need to feel better about life is a $3 bottle of hair dye. Two ways of looking at this; I'm really low maintenance, or I'm deluding myself. I'll choose low maintenance and hope that this feeling lasts through the day. Either way, the revers...

A Rose by Any Other Name...
On Saturday, my husband posted this picture on Facebook of me holding an absolutely stunning bouquet of roses from Kalla . Beside the photo he said "Happy Anniversary, Honey! I love you!" And the responses were insane. Can you blame them? People on Facebook...
Can you blame them? People on Facebook were astounded at the bouquet of over 52 enormous roses and rose buds, arranged in a lovely vase; the entire thing is bigger than my head and weighs at least 40 pounds! My husband quickly achieved "best husband of the year" status in the minds of many a ...

I actually had a great day today, until I tried to write a blog post....
Agitated. On Edge. Writer's Block. Mosquito bites. Barking dog. Stiff neck. The house smells weird. The kids are bickering about video games. My turn, your turn. Yours was longer. Mine was shorter. LIFE IS SO HAAAARD to be a middle-class suburban kid! Is it...
Agitated. On Edge. Writer's Block. Mosquito bites. Barking dog. Stiff neck. The house smells weird. The kids are bickering about video games. My turn, your turn. Yours was longer. Mine was shorter. LIFE IS SO HAAAARD to be a middle-class suburban kid! Is it time for bed? 6:20 pm?
