It’s Saturday morning, and I’m sitting on the ground, looking up at the sky, noticing the Mickey Mouse shaped clouds. Man, am I glad it’s cloudy today. I’m tired and starting to get sore from shoveling dirt with a bunch of men, one of whom I’m sure is hung over. We are moving dirt for […]
My 38th birthday (gasp) happened back in June, and it’s taken me until now to come to terms with it. I couldn’t stop it. But I look at my bathroom counter and realize I sure did give it a good try. For crying out loud I own a cream or potion for just about every […]

Ahhhhh monsoon season. I love the rain.
