When your kids are little you never think the day will come when they’ll actually leave home. Sure, you joke about it, as in “One day when you’re gone I’m turning your room into a crafting paradise and getting rid of your cat” or you might wistfully imagine a day when there’s not empty glasses, dirty […]

Today’s post brought to you by my sinuses. But really. I’m all congested and drippy at the same time and my head is pounding and my stomach is queasy and I just. need. to. go. back. to. bed.  So I arbitrarily picked this oldie for you. No kidding, I opened up my post screen, randomly […]

You know those people who no matter how late they go to bed at night still get up at the crack of dawn just because of their weird internal alarm clock or because they’re “morning people” or to (god forbid) work out?  Yeah, me either.  My answer to the question, “Are you a morning person […]

This is the one where I tell you about how I’ve been obsessed with pop-culture and celebrity life and Awards Shows for most of my life. Wait…you already knew that?  I guess you’re right.

I have to admit, when I sat down to write this post I had nothing to write about. Which, sure, isn’t all that unusual for a Friday Favorites post. I mean, now that I have approximately 70 of these weekly posts under my belt, finding new Favorites sometimes gets to be more than a little […]

  I’ve always been a ‘glass half-full’ kind of a girl. Pollyanna, Anne Shirley, Leslie Knope — those girls are my peeps. My mantra for pretty much all of the stressful situations in my life — my adult life, at least — has been, “things can always be worse.” When I had each of my […]
