I love to sleep. Actually, that’s an understatement, but I can’t think of another word besides “love” that conveys the message more. I cherish sleep? Worship sleep? Yeah, those too. It’s true. My mother tells me that when I was a little girl, a bedtime wasn’t necessary. In fact, I’d often ask her how much longer […]

  For the past year or two I’ve had a stalker. Someone who knows things about me I don’t always tell my closest friends. Things about me I might not even share with my husband. Someone who gets me, without even having to talk to me. I’ve been aware of this creeper for awhile, and for some […]

46. Forty-six. XLVI. Quarante-six. (Damn, even in French it sounds old.) Tomorrow I will be 46. What. The. Hell. Like I always say about my children, I blinked and it happened. Actually, that’s not entirely true. Those years from birth to about age 15 seemed to totally drag. If you’ve been following along here the […]

The Friday Favorites will be short and sweet this week. Why? BECAUSE THIS: Since I’ve spent the past few hours writing and posting this week’s Parenthood nostalgia recap on EW (Parenthood fans, are you remembering to relive the memories with me every Friday?) I’m itching to get my tennies on and hit the pavement for […]

Well, to be honest, it kind of has. I’m not upset though. I love March’s DST because it means that it finally starts to look like spring around these northern parts. I say “look” because typically the sun staying up past 5 p.m. is all it means. Usually early March means temps still in the 20’s or […]

Ask my husband what one of his biggest fears is and you might be surprised at the answer. Falling off a building? Clowns? Gorillas who suddenly pound on the 3″ thick pane of glass at the zoo when your face is directly on the other side? (Fine, that last one is mine.) Nope. His biggest […]

Sorry for the tardy FF post today, you guys, but since last night’s Parenthood finale, I’ve been kind of busy. Okay, that gif isn’t entirely true. I’m totally still in my pajamas. But really. Last night was a twofold ending for me: saying goodbye to a family I’ve felt a part of for six seasons, and […]

Does the title I gave this post concern you? Don’t worry, you’re TMI-safe. For now. In a week and a half I have a colonoscopy (my third — fourth?) and I plan to write a diary about my experience this time and share it with you. Bet you can hardly wait. Today, however, you can rest […]

Stop. Before you scold me for not posting in like two weeks (like exactly two weeks), please bite your tongue. I’ve had such a great week that I refuse to be brought down by the three, maybe four of you who missed me over the past couple of weeks and now want to complain. I […]

On Sunday my husband will give the eulogy at his best friend’s funeral. It’s not something you ever want to have be asked to do, but at the same time is an honor if the circumstances dictate it. Heartbreaking, infuriating, cruel, tragic, senseless: All words that describe the circumstances of a life taken away far too […]
