A hodgepodge. A cornucopia. A crazy quilt. And other annoying phrases to indicate that I have 80 topics today.

I have had many odds and ends, or odds 'n' ends, because you know how I like that, to tell you. This time to mark them all off I will use background-singer noises. Mmmmmmm! Yesterday I threw caution to the wind and spent eight dollars on Jergens Natural Glow Express tanning lotion. It is supposed … Continue reading A hodgepodge. A cornucopia. A crazy quilt.

Sunny days and Mondays always make me feel the same as ever

It's Monday morning. Everything is as it should be. My phone has already rung 293772 times, because the phrase "works" from home apparently eludes everyone. Talu got up from sleeping with me to go rest on her blanket on the couch. It is like she is 147 years old. How much sleep do dogs NEED? … Continue reading Sunny days and Mondays always make me feel the same as ever

Mince Words with June–A Reliable Wife. I mean, I am a reliable wife, but that is the title of the book

This month's book choice, A Reliable Wife, is my favorite Mince Words with June selection thus far. Don't you agree? Weren't you constantly dying during this book?

I loved how everyone in this book was despicable in their own way, and yet … Continue reading Mince Words with June–A Reliable Wife. I mean, I am a reliable wife, but that is the title of the book

Also, he's an excellent watch cat.Anyway, I have much to do today so I will be … Continue reading Elegance is learned, but crazy comes naturally

And yet another tale about this ludicrous dog and my fine pack leader skills

Does it seem like I am constantly telling you stories about Tallulah escaping? Like, here? And also too here? I know. Well, guess what. So, Marvin calls me last night at 6:00, because have I mentioned the ridiculous hours he puts in as an elementary school teacher?

Into this house we’re born. Into this world we’re thrown. With Marvin.

It's been very rainy here lately. The other night we had one of those storms that seemed fake. You know on TV shows, how they make it seem like it's storming outside, and there is lightning every six seconds, and you think, When is it ever like that in real life? It was really like … Continue reading Into this house we’re born. Into this world we’re thrown. With Marvin.

Really love your peaches wanna shake your tree

Before I begin today's riveting post, someone got himself caught.in.the.rain this morning. And he did not like it. Look at his little wet head. Really all of him was wet but he refused to let me capture his humiliation on film. Henry must have gone outside when Marvin left for work, and Tallulah and Winston … Continue reading Really love your peaches wanna shake your tree

Hello. I’m in hell. Fortunately, there’s Internet access.

What if my entire personality is based on the part where I have been high on caffeine this whole time? My whole life, since I'm 13, I have been caffeinated. What if it turns out I am really quiet and reserved, like Adrian in Rocky or the other backup singer in Tony Orlando and Dawn … Continue reading Hello. I’m in hell.
