on the cusp

Memorial Day weekend is such a tease. What I’m learning from my work from home role and also as the kids get older is that waiting for the end of the school year is like waiting for nail polish to dry if you are painting your nails outside in 98 degree humid July heat.

Disney Coma

That’s me this week. There is no way to go to Disney World for 7 days and REALLY do Disney with 10 people (6 adults and 4 kids), without returning and morphing into a coma-like, alternate reality state. Like, wait, that’s not real life down there in Orlando? Dammit. Nope it’s not. But if youContinue reading “Disney Coma”

I must apologize for the lack of posting. I’ve been preoccupied. Where have I been, you ask?

May you neverContinue reading “There’s no place like home etc…”

Guest Dressed. Gen X.

Once upon a time, pretty much from 1999-2003, being a guest at a wedding or actually being in a wedding party was my part-time job. At one point I had at least 9 bridesmaids gowns in my closet. I also had no trouble figuring out what to wear if I were a guest. There wasContinue reading “Guest Dressed. Gen X.”

sunset 6pm tuesday

Look up. From your phone, iPad, laptop, whatever. Get up and go outside. That’s what we did this weekend. And what we will be doing every weekend until Mother Nature kicks us IN. Winter weather is weeks away, unfortunately. I know, I’m saying this and right now I’m sitting next to my screen door thatContinue reading “sunset 6pm tuesday”
