Boo.

Halloween was weird this year. For years my parents would come and see the kids in their costumes and take them trick or treating with me. Help man the candy hand-out. Help assess the inventory after the acquisition phase was complete. Help eat a few Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups if we had too many (as […]

Well that didn’t turn out as planned…

Just about this time last year I had a great idea for a series of blog posts. I had been all single girl, girl power, makingitonmyownjustfinethankyouverymuch for quite a while, and the question on the tip of everyone’s tongue was, annoyingly enough, “So, are you dating?” So I thought to myself, I shall sign up […]

Ace of Base, Too-Short Pants, and Finding the Right Fit

My son, Tater, seems to be in a constant growth spurt. It seems that purchasing him new pants really makes those hormones kick into gear and within mere weeks, the pants that fit – or even seemed too long – are suddenly three inches too short. I don’t even see it happening. Every time I […]
