i heart organizing

Just kidding. I used to heart organizing. In my mind palace (which currently resembles a WalMart at 11:55 pm on Christmas Eve), I still heart organizing. It's just that what I envision in the mind palace cannot exist in the temporal state of my home. I mean, I love...

this is my life and these are my teapots

Everyone wants to know what I have been doing to keep me from writing on my super famous blog lately. Well, grab some popcorn ladies (and gentlemen), and get cozy because you are going on a madcap, wild journey into the mind of a mad genius (me). Ready? Okay, here we...

victory

It's the beginning of a new chapter in the adventure called my life. Actually, I am starting a completely new novel, I think. After much consideration, I realize that I am just wrapping up book two in the series, which is the one where it seems like everyone is...

thank you, mr. whitman

Lately, I have been feeling like I am in front of one of those magnifying mirrors under flourescent lighting. Only instead of it being one for my face, it's a full length mirror. It's not pretty. I feel like I am not only seeing imperfections I was very well aware I...

Thank you, Sheila G.

Dear Sheila G, Recently I was wandering through the grocery store when I saw your product. I walked by, but then, curiosity got the best of me and I turned around and came back. It was a moment that will define my life forever. I didn't have time to carefully choose a...

bowls

When we moved into this home, the previous tenants had left some dishes. Here is an email I sent to my husband regarding these bowls...kind of gives you an inside view of the antics he has to put up with on a daily basis. He lovingly refers to it as "whimsy." This is...

the lamest post ever

I want to write, really I do. I am just so tired. I don't know why? Addie Jayne's due date was moved up to May 23rd. I think I am due the same time as my friend in Hawaii, which is kind of cool. I will probably be induced a week early because of my crazy winter fun in...

going home?

Ack! I am so nervous this morning.  As I sit in this very accommodating hotel room, I think of how much I would like to be in my own home, and wonder if today is the day I get to go home. In order to go home, I have to get my PIC line out.  I also have to have a...

i was interviewed!

In the spirit of being somewhat braggy, I must take this opportunity to publicly tell all the world wide world that I have been interviewed! I was really stressed when I was asked--should I, shouldn't I....what if my words got taken out of context and I sounded like...

brutally honest

Social media.  It's a double-edged sword. I have used it many times to discover people in need and help them.  I love that. I used it to make a Pineapple Angel Food Cake that exploded in my oven but that my kids ate anyway.  I love that.  What an adventure! But, ugh....
