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. It may be for this reason that I sometimes, ahem…or typically, create crazy stories about people/places/situations at which my husband just … More Things. Are. Lookin’. Up.
Yesterday, my friends? I hit the wall. I. Hit. The. Wall. Let me break it down for you… I had a fabulous weekend. Fabulous. One of those weekends you don’t want to end. One of those weekends that makes you grateful you’re with your partner. My husband and I? We really like each other. Yes, … More Game. On.
When I was 18 I really felt like I was the sh-t. I’m going to be honest…my bangs were still a little fluffier than they should have been in 1994, and…I hate to say it…but there may have still been shoulder pads somewhere in my wardrobe.

This morning as we sat on the tarmac waiting to take-off for Phoenix I started to think about the last time I visited. It was the fall of 2010 and everything was different. Every. Single. Thing. 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.
Last fall, my husband and I dreamt-up what we wanted to do to our bathroom. And yes, by our bathroom I am implying that we have only one bathroom. We started to hang around Home Depot, one of our happy places, searching for great deals on great stuff. And we stocked up. We bought all … More It’s. Best. That. You. Don’t. Ask.
In retrospect, it’s been a good week. On Tuesday, when I was in so much pain I could barely stand it? It didn’t feel like a good day. And on Wednesday, when I got bad unacceptable news from a doctor? It didn’t feel like a good day. And yesterday, when I had an epidural steroid … More The. Brilliance. In. Bliss.
