Happy Friday! Because it’s inauguration day and many of you are losing your freaking minds for one reason or another (and this I know because I’ve just come from Facebook which I’ve vowed to not look at again for the next two days — or four years — because of all the hate, anger, despair, […]

It’s no secret that for the past few years I’ve been in a major battle with aging, and it’s been ugly. Not so much the battle (because I’m a gracious loser), but the sags, bags, and wrinkles that make me literally gasp each morning when I see myself in the mirror. Gravity is real, ya’ll, […]

To be clear, the ‘sort of’ goes with the ‘stylish’ part of the title of this post. The ‘suddenly’ is totally and 100% sudden. Because I’ve never been all that stylish, in case you need it spelled out for you. As some (12) of you might remember, two months ago I spontaneously got a job […]

The good old Friday Favorites are back, ya’ll, and I have two words for you. Shut. Up. Without going into a long explanation of the mental state I’m clearly in to be as hypocritical indecisive and flustered about something so trivial, let me just say that as much as I thought I liked the idea […]

You guys will never believe this. I’m thinking of changing these posts. Yes, I know there’s only been four of them. Yes, I know I just changed the Friday Favorites over to them because I was sick of the Friday Favorites, but guess what? I kind of miss the Friday Favorites.   But then I remembered […]

Yesterday I upgraded my phone to iOS 10. I spent a full hour playing with the new features in iMessages alone. I sent gif images, stickers, bursts of confetti, and floaty balloons to the family text group for so long that two of them went dark on me. Apparently if you have a real job […]
