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 […]

Chicken Chit-Chat, Shoulder Mounts & Pole Gods (3566-3607)

It has been the craziest week. I came home to immediately find myself host to a Pole God and hit the ground running in the best of ways. These’s nothing quite like back-to-back workshops, dog-walking duty and the Boulder lifestyle to snap me back into training mode. David C. Owen’s masterful workshops inspired me to […]

Igloos and How to Deal With 8000 Records (2468-2522)

We got another snowstorm yesterday, thank God, which meant I had two things on my agenda. One, go to the grocery store and stock up on milk and bread because that’s what you’re supposed to do and two, take the boys sledding. We have friends who live in the foothills and they always get more […]

Padded Cell (2338-2353)

I see myself living in a very small space one day. Hopefully it won’t be a padded cell. I don’t like to think about the circumstances that will lead to that (empty nest and all that) but I’m sure that I will embrace it once it happens. I kid myself into believing that the boys […]

Sentimental Value (2328-2337)

I feel the need to sit back a little after yesterday’s major purge-o-rama. And it’s Sunday. I’m getting rid of a few lingering things that have sentimental value, which gets easier each time. This process has given me faith that I can preserve the memories even though the physical object is gone. Zeb cleaned up […]

Dirty Jokes and Fight Club (2225-2327)

Q: How do you know if a woman is ticklish? A: You give her a testicle. A homeless/crazy woman told my friend this joke after she asked him directions to Chase bank. Do you think she was hitting on him? Did she really need to know how to get to the bank? I was mulling this […]

The Best (Worst) Anxiety Dream Ever (2150-2169)

I’m going to start with the junk before I expose my innermost anxieties; mostly because this was one long-ass dream and who gives a shit, really? But for the connoisseurs of the subconscious, it has it all as far as anxiety dreams go: water, dead pets, uncomfortable sexuality, never-ending stairs that go down, lost voice, fear […]

Today, The Daily Camera. Tomorrow, the Huffington Post!

My Blog in the Paper! Aimee Heckel wrote this great piece about me in the Boulder Daily Camera! Thanks Aimee! Now where’s that picture of your box of junk? I might just have to stick a pin in Mr. Monkey if you don’t produce the proof.

Viv on the Verge (1867-1916)

I am in a dark place today although I shouldn’t. I’ve reached the halfway mark of my original goal of 3,650 items and should be celebrating. Instead I am feeling a panic attack coming on. Really. Maybe it’s because the boys have been cooped up in the house all day and have gotten “creative”, or […]

No Freebies (1852-1866)

A friend of mine wrote that he was happy to see the return of pole dancing pictures on my blog. I told him that I de-emphasized the pole content in order to widen my audience. He was surprised that there was anyone who didn’t like the pole pictures. What a sweetie. I guest blogged for […]
