Life with teens: A lovely day turned into a lovely dinner OH KABOOM WE'RE HAVING AN ARGUMENT *$!@*@&$(%. What the what? Thursday: Twas the night before graduation and all through the house, every creature's disgruntled, my kid is a louse. The cap and the gown hung in the shower with care, in hopes a diploma … Continue reading A Graduation Story
Please. Can we just let these kids graduate? Can we let them feel the pride of completing twelve years of school? Can we post pictures as proud parents outside of their school - cap & gown, diploma in hand - and receive accolades for surviving? Please. I know there is a lot going on right … Continue reading Please.
I saw a meme last week that this year it seemed like we (America) got caught building on an Indian burial land. Uh, well, yeah...that does seem to make things clearer. I feel like our life-landlord is looking to our renewal contract, has better tenants in mind and is, therefore, making our lives as hellish … Continue reading 2020, Month 43

Should I be concerned that I basically spend the days intercepting hilarious jokes that zing thru my head? Should I be concerned that most times, … Continue reading Wake me up, when Apriltember ends.
Anything is pause-able.
Dust yourself off
March 11th. This was the approximate day the work-from-home workforce was sent into action. Employees across America sent scurrying on a backwards commute, carrying their monitors, keyboards, and mice under one arm - empty lunch box under the other. It was exciting! A whole new world! No more ironed shirts, travel mugs or lanyards showing … Continue reading Flatten the Curve. No, the other one.
If you haven't read a blog by now that starts with "may as well start documenting some of this craze for the martians to find in later years," you are blessed. And by 'craze,' I'm not saying it's not real - I absolutely get it. And I also absolutely get that humor keeps me moving … Continue reading Pandem(ic)onium
