You guys. About this time every year I wonder why the hell May is my favorite month. It’s bonkers. I mean, all parents know it’s typically a hectic month, but holy hell it has kicked. my. ass. this year. Don’t worry, I’m still basking in my Rob Glowe, but I’m also still sprinting to outrun the […]

Spring Break started today. Or here in Minnesota, what I just call “break.” It’s currently about 34° — sunny, at least — but this weekend it’s forecast to be in the 20s with some snow. You know, just the kind of weather you think of when you think of Easter. I’d love to be able […]

Seriously. Fill ‘er up, folks.  Why is today’s cougar-pour different from, say, yesterday’s cougar-pour you ask? Today I am 49. Shit’s getting real, folks.

And by celebrate it I mean bemoan the fact and complain about neck wrinkles and failing eyesight and a horrifying intolerance to drinking after 10 p.m. before doing a quick 180 and offering up gratefulness for all of the […]

For the past five years that I’ve had this little blog, I’ve reposted this story on 9/11. Why?

Last week my husband left for a nine day business trip in China. However you want to pronounce it, all I know is this: It’s the longest — in both miles and minutes — we’ve been apart in about 27 years. In our defense, we’re not big travelers. Or live exciting lives. But really, when my husband […]
