Sticky Notes On The Brain

This picture makes me think of my mind at the moment. I have thoughts on sticky notes plastered all over my brain, but I need to corral those scattered thoughts and make sense of them. To do that, however, I need to carve out a chunk of time and that seems to be a losing battle. Ever since New Mexico…

This Just In

I am writing this on my phone because I no longer have a working computer. It crashed last night. Nothing spectacular or dramatic, no sparks or horrible sounds. Just a few flashing lights, a little whir and then nothing. Todd and I ordered a new one tonight. I wasn’t keen on paying for another laptop.…

Capriciality

I am a horrible judge of pita chip to hummus/chip to dip ratio. I underestimated how many pita chips I was going to need to finish the amount of hummus I have, so I just got the bag. It seems to be working out well. Now if I can only make my one little glass…

Smatterings…

One of my fans gently chastised me for not posting anything for over a month. Apparently she and my other fan have discussed the lack of posts and both have been disappointed. Always the people pleaser, here’s a new post. October was an exciting month for Katie. She bought a car with her very own…

Five (+1) On The Day After Friday

I was on the run all day yesterday and the only chance I had to do my Five on Friday post (3rd edition) was as I was climbing into bed last night, but I would have had to do it on my iPhone and there was no way that was happening. So I’m changing things…

Maybe What She Said Was…

… three posts a month. Yeah! That’s it! I’ve been awake since about 5:00 am this morning. On a Saturday. Tossing and turning and alternately imagining my interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America when my book hits the best seller’s list and picturing how I want to set up my sitting room as…

Road Trip!

Last Thursday I drove three hours one way in the snow just to pick Taylor up from where he was being dropped off by a friend from school. While that might sound horrible to some, it was truly one of the best days of my life. For starters, I sang ALL.THE.WAY.THERE. I belted it. Aretha has nothing…

What I’m Good At

I’ve always been one of those lucky people who could adapt fairly easily to any situation. I’m half-way good at a whole lot of things. The problem is, I’m not really good at much of anything. Jack of all trades, master of none. That’s me. But I’d rather not be able to do a ton…

Happy Monday!

So the preschool staff starts up at church today. I’m excited. They’re a great bunch of women – funny, smart, really nice (because you have to be nice to be a preschool teacher or assistant which is why I work in the office upstairs). We also have a new Director and she’s been awesome to…
