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)

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
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.
