Mother-Son Bonding, With Tissues
I grew up a cryer.  I was a very emotional child, and the slightest little change in the weather had me bawling my eyes out.  I cried for two and a half hours after (SPOILER ALERT) Old Yeller died.  It was embarrassing, because it is really hard to be taken...

Forget the Honey, Bring the Laughter
At my old job, I had administrator privileges 1. 
Java keeps saying that it needs to update, but it does not update. It
is a sad tale.  Not "Han Solo dies" sad, but more "Jar Jar Binks exists"

for this?  2.

Putting Myself Out There, Part Two
I have been as chill as this dog! On the last day at the plastic surgeon, they have you put on a pink graduation cap and gown.  They take your picture.  You've finished, you're done, life is good.  They also ask you if you would be willing to be a member of...

We All Need To Vent
Some days are just full of frustrations.  Trials and tribulations, as the old folks might say. From the time you wake up, everything seems to go wrong.  Your alarm doesn't wake you because you forgot to turn it on. The coffee maker dies after depositing a v...

Gift Horses Sometimes Have Bad Breath
I was walking down the hallway after work, paying not a bit of attention to my surroundings.  I had my keys in my hand, and was searching through my purse for my driving sunglasses.  I passed a young man, and my brain made a note.  Just a note, though, beca...

Learning to Roll with the Punches
I got a phone call this week from some random guy named Roy or Ray. (I have trouble with other people's enunciation)  He left me a message "regarding your upcoming appointment."  Sometimes such a phone call means that a surgery has been scheduled or the doc...

So I Stepped Out of My Comfort Zone
Let me start out by saying that I am still cancer free, so yay!  I have started getting used to the idea.  I am finally starting to relax again.  I can have a medical symptom, like weight loss, without completely freaking out and thinking that my cancer has...

It's Mum Season
Fall in Central Texas is really, really...not that different from the other three seasons. Most of the trees don't change colors, but the daily temperatures fall from "Melt Everything" down to a balmy "Reasonably Warm".  If you did not have access to a cale...

Not My Proudest Parenting Moment
Zane and I were walking to our car in the school parking lot, as were several other parents who had picked up their children. I asked Zane about his day, just like I do every school day. My boy responded with the usual nonresponse that most kids produce on ...
