Mosquito Bite Backlash

Holy sweet mother of Jebus I look like I have leg acne. The mosquitoes are brutal this year. Brutal I tell you! I would take a picture of how bad my legs looks but 1) I am afraid to shave because I have so many scabs and 2) I can’t find my camera. This leads […]

Apocalypse Now

I have a whole category on this blog dedicated to “Signs of the Apocalypse“. I usually reserve this category for unlikely happenings or things that I can’t explain – like getting up at 5:00 AM to exercise or people following Tori Amos on tour. (I’ve done some research on the actual Seven Signs of the […]

Ears With Feet

I went to a bachelorette party the other night. It was sort of a last minute thing. My husband is in the wedding party and I’ve known the groom for years. The bride and I are friends but we haven’t spent a ton of time together and so I didn’t know anyone at the bachlorette […]

The World Just Keeps Getting Smaller

I wrote a post yesterday about how my son wants to play for the Washington Redskins. As a long time Buccaneer fan this comment spoke to me: August 6th, 2008 at 10:01 pm, suzhasbighair Says: i’ve been a buc fan since they wore those horrendous orange colors! we’ll always make room for you down here […]

Like Shaving, Except You Sweat More

I did something yesterday that I had never done before. For the first time in my entire life I mowed the lawn. (No. That is not a euphemism.) I mowed the yard and I have a couple of things I would like to say about it. 1) It was both way easier and way harder […]

Not My Usual Day

This morning a gentleman in a 70 foot truck dropped off a Chevy Tahoe Hybrid at my house. (All the neighbors got excited until I told them I didn’t get to keep it.) This afternoon a crew from CBS will be dropping by to film me (and Devra) in the car. Then (I assume) they […]

5:00 am

I’m trying to get into this weekday cycle where I get up at 5:00 am and use our elliptical machine. Let me explain. Besides the obvious – I need to get into shape, and the maybe not so apparent – we spent a lot on the damn elliptical machine and I want to get my […]

I Thought I Felt My House Shaking

I thought it was a sonic boom. I thought maybe a Space Shuttle was landing. Then I remembered I don’t live in Florida anymore. All I know it that my whole house shook for about 10 seconds.  10 seconds is only a long time if your house is vibrating. As it turns out I’m not […]

First Sign of the Apocalypse (If you Believe in that Sort of Thing)

I did yard work yesterday. Real yard work. I tore out some bushes. I pulled them out, cut them out and bagged them up. And the kids helped. Sort of. If you count wearing gardening gloves and fighting among themselves as helping they helped a lot. I’m actually sore. I guess I don’t normally use my […]
