Orientation

Dear Abby used to appear in the same section as the comics did in the Sunday paper. I would occasionally read the column. I can distinctly remember the column that made me never read it again. It was the column about toilet paper orientation. At nine years old I decided her advice was not worth… Read more Orientation

Boot Weather

Ya’ll, it’s going to be cold tomorrow. /end sarcasm. It’s going to top out around 72°F which is apparently boot weather. I have a mental list of all of those I suspect will be wearing boots and probably some sort of flannel to work tomorrow. I’m expecting to be correct. I have no problem with… Read more Boot Weather

YouTube

I left the kid with the husband so I could grocery shop in peace. The husband whines too much when I take him and I can’t leave the kid home alone. I arrived home to find the kiddo watching YouTube. Later while we took a family trip to the hardware store, the kid kept asking… Read more YouTube

But rather, waiting for the federal government to take a crap load of my money. That’s what signified… Read more Signs You’re An Adult

Well That Stinks

I’ve been a busy little bee. Both with work and home. I’m still freelancing or contracting or whatever you want to call it, it’s all the same in the end. Things were supposed to slow down for a bit but the only break I managed to get was when I got a serious case of… Read more Well That Stinks

JingleVox

So I was given a Jingle VoxBox to review by Influenster. Some of the things I made the “kids” my testers, others, I may have devoured immediately. Like the Biscoff cookies. I’m sorry but I didn’t share a single one (there were three packs). They are the best tea biscuits ever! If you’ve never had… Read more JingleVox
