Block parties and taco trucks

Good morning! How was your weekend? We had a busy weekend! Not as busy as some, but still busier than others. We went to a block party on Saturday where Brian’s old band was playing. I hadn’t seen them in 6 months, so that was fun. A friend of Brian’s was actually in charge of… Continue reading Block parties and taco trucks

Fun Fact Friday (on Sunday)

I missed Fun Fact Friday. A tradition I started one week ago... I can't even show up for week two! We'll work on that... In my defense, I had a lot going on Friday! I worked from 7:30-12:30, and we were down three people in the office all morning. Can you say busy?! Then, I… Continue reading Fun Fact Friday (on Sunday)

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable

“Thinking I’m a moron gives people something to feel smug about. Why should I disillusion them?” Are you familiar with Charles Wallace’s character in A Wrinkle in Time? I’m completely fascinated with this book, especially the exceptional five year old. I’m halfway through the book. I honestly picked it up at Barnes and Noble when… Continue reading Get comfortable with being uncomfortable

The plasma donation and the 30 mile bike ride.

The first bike rides of the season took place this weekend. Finally! I've been waiting and waiting for it to be nice enough. We were planning on biking to the Valley Junction Farmer's Market last Thursday, but, of course, we got the worst thunderstorm of the season. Funnel clouds, winds up to 30 mph, rain,… Continue reading The plasma donation and the 30 mile bike ride.

Yes, there are things that happen to the female body before and after childbirth. We're all aware. I, however, think it's amazing that the Duchess… Continue reading

Dream Journal: I feel the pressure in my head.

It's a gray day. The wind blows and rain falls outside, but I'm tucked safely in a classroom. It's a long, powerfully boring day of training at work. Safety, hazardous materials, standard procedures... You name it. If it puts you to sleep, we're brushing up on it. I've worked here for four months, and I'm… Continue reading Dream Journal: I feel the pressure in my head.

There's nothing more humbling than the ocean. To think that we get to live in this world and admire all of this is amazing to me. I'm sitting ocean-side in South Carolina, looking out from my balcony on the 17th floor of the building, and you can see until the end of the world. There… Continue reading

I remember the exact moment that I learned to be embarrassed by my emotions. I was eight. I'd been going to public school for less than a week, and I had one friend. The school was still a strange place to me, and it was actually the first week I'd ever been away from either… Continue reading

Friday night spent organizing kitchen cabinets and cleaning litter boxes.

The title says it all. It's Friday. It's Cince de Mayo. I'm at home, blogging from my couch at 11:30 pm. I'm rocking boxers and a Pokemon t-shirt. My makeup has been removed and my hair is in what could be a bun with a little more effort. Earlier, I bleached my entire bathroom, reorganized… Continue reading Friday night spent organizing kitchen cabinets and cleaning litter boxes.
