Post Spring “Break” To-Do List

Spring Break (aka more work for me) is over, Loony is back out of town and the kids are in school. How do I feel? Remember how I was all boo-hoo when Loony was gone? It took exactly 20 minutes to stop missing him and wishing he would go away. Why 20 minutes? That’s how […]

I’m Getting That Spooky Feeling

I found the bed that I wanted for my guest room on Craigslist today. One that would replace the Frankenbed that I hate. It was a simple enough listing and the pictures looked good. Very legit. I found someone to take the Frankenbed off my hands for free (so long sucker!) and headed down to Longmont […]

Mice Krispies

Six days since my last post? Oh shit. I am striking distance from my 600th post (a dubious distinction at best) but at this rate it will be months before I get there. I’ve gone from hardest working blogger to laziest blogger, probably because I have such a busy and important life. But not really. […]

Time For New Nicknames

My kids were little when I started my blog and at the time it never occurred to me that they would ever be able to read. For a while I operated under the assumption that I could maintain some semblance of anonymity ON THE INTERNET and assigned pseudonyms to my family members and friends. I didn’t […]

I Just Want to See the Floor

Nothing fuels my sense of peace and well-being like a well-ordered house so it’s not surprise that I have been steadily losing my mind since I married Loony. Well-being can be overrated, there are things you sacrifice for love and to be fair, Loony sacrifices a lot for me. I keep waiting for him to fully […]

Staying Sane

It’s 7am and the table is set for dinner tonight. I have not lost my mind. This is how I keep Loony from piling shit recently acquired treasures on my dining room table. If I set the table, he can’t dump armloads of clothes he just bought on it. Plus, THAT’S WHAT THE WAREHOUSE IS FOR! […]

Figuring Out This Birthday Thing

Testiclese turned eight last week and my folks flew in for the occasion. I can’t resist the urge to take this opportunity to post some cute throwback pictures of the old Senator Snorkie. I’m working on getting the hang of special occasions. I’ve always had a one-size-fits-all model. Invite everyone Spend shitloads of money on […]

Organizationgasm

If you’ve been following my blog for more than a year, you’ve been through the divestment process with me. You were there while I sold, donated, gifted, recycled and tossed over 7300 items in one year. The end was bittersweet. I doubled my original goal of chucking ten items a day for 365 days and I walked […]

Coming In For A Landing

Yesterday I recalled a funny  airplane anecdote: After a bumpy descent and a rough landing, a passenger on the plane remarked, “Did we land or were we shot down?” That’s kind of how I felt yesterday returning home. This is despite the best efforts of our house sitters. Sometimes shit happens. Saturday was Maggie and Pablo’s […]
