When Cabin Fever Strikes, The Puns Run Wild

How are you all faring in our social distancing efforts? Fortunately, cabin fever is the only type of fever affecting my family. We were going for walks if possible, but today’s weather looks like this. Happy first day of spring. So as I was scrolling through twitter and wondering what to do with my time,…

Did Your Dream Job Come True?

Time for another entry prompted by these journal cards. As usual, I picked three randomly and one of those gets the full blog treatment. I considered doing the one about celebrity culture, since today’s news was partly dominated by Bieber picking a fight with Tom Cruise. Or trying to. And the comedic potential there could…

The Adventures of Tongue Shark

So this happened last night. The 14yo brainstormed ideas while the 11yo drew them. Now, because my children are my children, a silly idea like that quickly grows into something possibly ridiculous but definitely funny. And because their mother is me, the ridiculous, funny thing gets blog treatment. Ergo, I bring you… The Adventures of…

Where Do Your Travel Dreams Take You?

I randomly pulled three cards from that journal prompt deck and got these options for today’s post: Making time for things is about priorities (it’s not that I don’t have time to learn how to rebuild an engine, I just prefer not to learn that), and writing out what people don’t understand about me would…

Where the Bored Mind Wanders

Before I get to the titled topic, I need to provide some background. I recently purchased a thing (or 100 individual things, I suppose) that some of you might think is silly, given the plethora of free stuff to be found on the interwebs.   Though they are intended for journaling, I bought this set…

Let Your Adults Finish Their Power Naps

It happened again last Friday evening, though I can’t say I’m sad about it. My family and I were watching a movie together in the darkened family room. We had blankets and pillows. It was all very cozy. I decided to stretch out on half of the couch, where I snuggled deep in my blanket.…

5 Things I Learned From My Other Kitten

Meet Sulu. Sulu is a four-month-old domestic shorthair. They say he’s a “brown tiger” or “tabby” or something. We don’t really know because we got him as a stray from the shelter five days ago, and since I penned a post about Meeker when he was a kitten (hence the “other” in the title), I…

Is “Said” Really Dead?

A while back I did a post wondering if there are really 115 synonyms for “walk.” It was more a goofy exploration into how some of those synonyms would look in gif form than a genuine dive into the question. That said, I still have yet to promenade anywhere. Weird. Anyway, today I’m tackling “said”…

Help Pick A New Headshot!

Last weekend, I had new headshots done. The old ones are going on five years old, and my hair has grown about . . . *counts on fingers, toes, and teeth* . . . forty-seven feet since then. I got haircuts. Geez. Before I tell you which shots to pick from, I need to share…
