I have this penny that won’t go away. I know that I should pick the damn thing up and put it in my son’s bank but for some reason I just leave it sitting there. I mean, it’s to the point that I will be washing down my kitchen counters and I’ll just clean around it. It would literally take me ten seconds to walk … Continue reading A Penny Saved is Just a Penny but a Lot of Pennies is a Dollar
Now that I’m a lot older and I’ve managed to get myself through many a ridiculous situation, I find myself thinking back on the “good old days.” You know, they days when my parents would let me roam around like a wild animal for hours at a time, hanging with God knew who, doing who knows what. Until this moment, I never really thought about … Continue reading KISS My Grits!

My mother told me once that a cousin of mine told her she was obsessed with the fear of death that she would spend… Continue reading I got just one life in a world that keeps on pushin’ me around…
Hello to you all! This is a piece that has been written a couple of different ways and has been very difficult to finish. I tried to explain my head space about this in a previous post and it was really difficult to pick up and continue with how I had originally started. I hope it doesn’t come off too rambling! I want to give … Continue reading I Want Your Attention but Stop Looking at Me!
I finally found the time to run out into the world and buy myself a new pair of running shoes. Not walking shoes or trainers, but straight up running shoes. Why? Because I hope to someday not be so fat that I no longer have the capability of keeping up with my ten year old child. Someone out there might be thinking, “A new pair of … Continue reading That One Day I Talked to My Shoes
Twice a year I find myself engaged in one of the most uncomfortable activities known to man or womanhood—getting my teeth cleaned. Even though my head knows that it is something that has to be done in order to remain healthy, I find myself fighting over the very idea of making that trip to my dentist’s office. It would seem more normal to say that … Continue reading Bite Me
As I was sitting at the library letting my mind wander from the totally scintillating task of fine filing children’s drawing books, I realized that I was kind of lame and pathetic. It’s a hell of a thing when one minute you’re contemplating whether How to Draw Your Favorite Super Hero gets filed before How to Draw Your Favorite Super Hero Pet and you are … Continue reading It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane…
My mornings actually start at night. I cherish my time alone when the boys are asleep so much that I am willing to stay up until almost 2 o’clock in the morning on a work night. I will set up shop on my couch, watch at least one episode of Colbert or Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, take a quick ½ hour nap, eat a bowl (or … Continue reading Manic Monday (aka I’m Too Old for This S***)
A vacation is an adventure that always starts off so exciting with thoughts of perfect travel, exciting experiences and wonderful fresh food that surely await me when I get to my point of destination–in this case, the Big Island of Hawaii. Getting to sleep the night before leaving is one big giant game to be played between myself and myself, trying to convince my excited … Continue reading Vacations Give the Loveliest Headaches
As I was wasting my life away on that time suck that is facebook, I came across a meme/photo/thing that describes me pretty well: I’m pretty quick to pass on different curiosities that cross my beloved laptop screen, but this one sort of stopped me in my tracks. Its succinctness in describing my life can only be described as miraculous. Now don’t get me wrong, … Continue reading Mini Musings—Thank Goodness I Have My Words
