I was in a bit of a state this morning. All weekend I was in a funk, if you will, and this morning I was in an effing state. To be fair…I listened to a lot of Nas this weekend which left me feeling a tad aggressive. We had one of those weekends. The kind where we didn’t have the … More If. I. Ruled. The. World.
Today is my husband’s birthday. I can’t tell you how irritating it is that the bastard will always be younger than I am (and that he reminds me of it often). Rude. Monday night the little girls and I were running our birthday errands. We tracked down the gifts we wanted to give him and … More My. Happy. Place.
Sign-up for ten mile race…check! Create b-tchin’ running playlist…check! Buy ridiculously expensive running shoes…check! Start training program…check! Take precautionary measures to prevent injury…check! After weeks of training, forget to take precautionary measures after one long run, and get injured…CHECK! When I woke up Monday morning, I knew something was wrong. I’d completed my long run … More Who. You. Callin’. “We.”

I’m a big Stephen King fan. Since junior high, I have read his books over and over, and am always excited when I see a new 800 page hardcover in bookstores bearing his name.

But they were balanced out by my Doc Martens … More My. Happy. Places.
Tonight my husband had school so it was just the little girls and me. We rushed through dinner, reading, and math and then the neighbor girls came over to play Barbies. As I sat down at my kitchen table to get some work done I started hearing rumblings of discontent from downstairs. Things like “we … More I’m. Gonna. Need. Some. Of. That.

My husband first told me he loved me when we were on our first vacation together. He had a business trip to California scheduled, I had miles at my disposal, and we were in the first few months of dating. I used my miles to take a mini-vacation with my new boyfriend. He used to … More Is. This. For. Real.
You know when you decide to do something and you know in your heart of hearts it’s a bad idea? Not only a bad idea, but likely a really bad idea? When I was ten I was invited to a birthday party for one of my girlfriends. Her birthday party was an all weekend affair … More A. Really. Bad. Idea.
