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!

I had come with my mom and brother to visit my grandma and aunt and uncle. My grandma moved … More Not. Like. The. Last. Time.
So one of my girlfriends has recently re-entered the dating scene. She’s met a couple men who have been worthwhile but after a few dates she’s finding that she’s doing all the work. I was talking to her yesterday about a man she’d been dating for about a month and she was saying “if there’s … More Come. To. Jesus.
