Spider Power

Today, Hubs and I were driving in the car, on the way home from the grocery store… Me: I’ve been having really vivid dreams lately. Like with babies and spiders. Hubs: I’m sure you’re just tired. You’ve had a lot going on lately. Me: No. Really. I’ve been dreaming a lot about spiders. And we

“Look what I just killed in our garage.” My husband just walked in the kitchen and proudly showed me a picture on his phone. Are you kidding me? That’s a black widow! “Yep. And I killed it.” What about her friends and her nest of eggs? Should we call an exterminator! (laughing) “It was just

Hubs and I just got back from doing our major-heavy-duty-grocery-super-shopping. Power. Style. For those of you that don’t live in a tourist town, let me explain power style grocery shopping to you. We hurry to the closest (large) Walmart before the tourists arrive because they clog up the aisles with long-lost-third-cousins and loaded-down grocery carts,

just. like. that.

I saw this infogram on Facebook a few minutes ago and I was shocked. Horrified. Worried. Hubs and I LOVE to read, our boys are all avid readers (even as adults), and we all LOVE bookstores; in fact, new books were treats for our kids when they were little. How could somebody not love to

i think i know you

I met my new doctor today. Well, she’s not really a doctor, she’s a nurse with super powers, which is cool with me. I’m fine with her power, I just worried if I’d like her; if we’d click; if she’d get me, or if she’d think I was crazy. My old-man doctor of ten years

Have you ever seen that episode of Cheers where Rebecca finally decides to give it up to Sam? The one where she is all snotty and coughing and un-showered, with matted-bed-hair, unbrushed teeth, and sporting well-worn pajamas? Well. Last Wednesday night, I remembered that episode… I returned from my Chicago business trip last Monday with

I spent my Fourth of July at The Color Run. Hubs refused to run The Color Run with me because he said it was gay; which in my non-homophobe-marathoner-husband’s language I translated to mean he didn’t want to do it because it wasn’t a serious, hardcore, timed run and he didn’t want to be doused

Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous -Albert Einstein Eight months ago we met on a rainy day, at a crappy beach in the Virgin Islands. We drank overpriced fancy drinks and despite our age difference, we talked like long lost friends while our husbands chatted awkwardly, bought our drinks, and made sure we were

glasses, braces and oh my

I’m a contact virgin. I’m the nerdy kid who always wanted to wear glasses and braces, and I never got to wear either. Well, I used to roll up aluminum foil and mold it around my teeth to pretend I had braces, but I never actually got to officially wear real ones, I just sort

i’m not ready…

“Mom, don’t wash any of my clothes. I’m saving up all of my dirty laundry and I’m going to wash it right before I leave on my trip.” Nic is referring to the fourteen hour road trip he has been planning for several months, with three other eighteen year old boys. Over the July Fourth
