Great news! It’s Halloween Friday! Seriously, shouldn’t Halloween always be on a Friday? I’m actually kind of envious of the parents with elementary aged kids today. For the past five years I’ve had to enforce post trick-or-treating bedtime and put restrictions on how much candy could be consumed before it because Halloween has fallen on […]

I hate cleaning my bathrooms. In fact, it’s what I’m supposed to be doing right now. True story. About an hour ago I posted this on Facebook: Since then I’ve searched for — and found — the green apple candle I decided I needed to light rightthisverysecond, brushed the cat (because obviously she needed it […]

If you start checking your browser bar and looking around at the graphics to make sure you’re in the right place by the time you get about a third of the way through this post because you notice that there’s no mention of my empty-nest syndrome symptoms, I’ll totally understand.
