Who Has Time To Read???

No, really. Who has time to read? And can I borrow a little bit from you? I promise to pay it back the next time I have a few spare minutes. Which will probably be next year sometime. Actually, I’ve had more time to read lately than I think. I’ve finally finished with wedding planning,…

Finding Rhythm

Guys. I think my life is settling into something that semi-resembles . . . normality. How do I deal with this? What do I do? Nothing has been normal for the last . . . let me think . . . three months? Give or take? Man, planning a wedding will take it out of…

Potstickers and Pasta Dough

I’m on a dough shtick. Pasta dough, mostly. With a few dumplings thrown in. Okay, what are those things actually called? Dumplings? Potstickers? Momos? I have like ten different names for them in my head and everyone calls them something different and every time I say a name, I’m wrong. As you can tell, it…

Introvert Recovery 101

I had a crazy week. Like, really crazy. First of all, I spent all five work days at conference centers, attending—and presenting—at meetings. Which meant a lot of talking and a firehose of information. Stories were planned. Characters were examined. Exciting things happened. I think I survived. I haven’t checked yet. Secondly, we had quite…

Who Has Time To Read??

This week, I spent Friday night nannying at someone’s house. Because I party hard, ya’ll. I don’t normally nanny anymore, mostly because I work forty hours a week in an office, then get home and work on side hustle/personal career/books until I go to sleep. But this particular job fell into my lap, and I…

Mermaids

I saw a mermaid this weekend. Actually two. Real live actual mermaids. Okay, not actual. But definitely real live mermaids. Okay, it was two actresses wearing costumes and taking pictures with the kids at the Denver Aquarium. But you were not there, so technically, you can’t prove that they weren’t real live actual mermaids. And…

Adulthood is a Myth

My sister sent me an awesome birthday gift this week. A Sarah’s Scribbles 2020 calendar entitled Adulthood is a Myth. I felt that one to my soul. Not only was it strange to remember that next year is 2020, but the calendar also has the added advantage of making me laugh at myself. Because adulthood…

Birthday Adventures

I have a surprise for you all. Today is my birthday! Woohooo! Balloons and party hats and kazoos and cake! Not really. Actually, I have to go to work today, and my birthday weekend is already over. But I am a quarter-of-a-century-old today, and I felt the need to announce it. So. There you are….

Weekend Adventurers

My best friend in the whole entire world is finally home. She was gone for a long time. I missed her. But now that she’s finally home and back in our beautiful tiny cabin, it has created a rather conflicting dilemma for me. A ‘I really want to hang out with you but I work…

Surprise!

My sister is finally, finally home, after traveling about like a crazy adventure woman for six months. I am so happy she’s here. Don’t get me wrong, living alone is lovely. The house is quiet, I have my own space, and—and that’s the only plus sides I can come up with right now. Now that…
