One, Please.

While I wait for yet another specialist to arrive and give me an estimate on this situation, I thought I’d check in and see how everyone’s weekend was. If it was anything like mine, you flipped out on your spouse and, in the few [...]

The Lone Reviewer

Do you and your other half enjoy watching the same movies? Husband and I watch quite a few of them together, but I’ll readily admit there’s a divide when it comes to certain genres. For instance, if my love suggests we watch a gangster [...]

Awkward Party Animals

  “I’ll grab my apron with the dudes on it, and you go put those spongy rollers in your hair. Together, we’ll dominate this gathering of strangers.” I just got back from the grocery store. It was eventful, but as [...]

Percolating Betrayal

I’m not sure if I ever mentioned it, but my dear companion, Mr. Coffee, died suddenly a while back. Exactly. If that can happen here, it can happen in you house too. I’ll let you process your shock quietly before we move on. Breathe. Now [...]

Baby Bar Fights

You don’t know because you don’t live with us (prayers of thanksgiving should be saved for the end of this post, so you don’t get sidetracked with your enthusiasm and forget to read these finely-crafted words), but Doc doesn’t [...]

Sundance At the Wedding

Afternoon Readers, I’m not sure how many of you are married, thinking about getting married, or planning a wedding right now, but after you order the cake, book the DJ, and buy two tons of colored almonds, please remember to also invite [...]

Dr. Seuss Makes Me Naughty

by Jenny Hansen I’ve always been madly in love with Dr. Seuss books. Their cadence is amazing, their rhyming stupendous. And nothing jiggles my creative writer like There’s a Wocket in My Pocket. Note: If you’re unfamiliar [...]
