Rare Bird Review: Anything of Importance…

10

  The morning of September 9, 2011, I was in a pretty good mood considering the night I had. I just survived a basement flood without significant damage to anything of importance. In fact, I didn’t just survive, I handled the entire disaster completely on my own. Chris wouldn’t be home from work for a…

  While my blog has been broken forever (or at least since February) some headway seems to have been made on fixing the font issues. Still can’t see images (hence no “They Coulda’ Been Great” monthly posts – expect a monster one as soon as everything is back to normal) – but that’s not required…

You Don’t Have My Permission

  Okay – I’m just going to say it. I’m so tired of all of these overly dramatic, “YOU CAN DO IT!” calls to action from… Oh god – pretty much anyone who wants to give them, I guess. Oprah’s life gurus…blogging “celebrities”…the writer of today’s viral link… You name it – these people have…

*This post is brought to you by Kiran who pointed out that my husband is on a 10 day business trip so I should be blogging every night, right? So it looks like I may not be having my nose job next week. Oh – I didn’t mention that I’m getting a nose job? I’m…

Our January bits and bobs via Facebook… (What is this? All answers are HERE.) January 1 2:55 p.m. A few days ago I expressed surprise at how violated my husband felt by my decision to purchase cheap toilet paper. Well. I am currently sitting at an auto repair shop where the very unremarkable bathroom off…

Scene: High school cafeteria  – Lunch Nice group of sitcoms is sitting at a long table, eating. Raucous group of reality TV arrives in a cloud of overpowering cologne. Reality TV: Um… This is where WE eat lunch? Sitcoms: But we’ve been eating lunch here for over 50 years. Reality TV: Wow. You’re OLD. Sitcoms:…

The Game Plan

It’s no secret that my seven year old son, George has never been a big guy. His twin sister has outweighed him for years and people are starting to assume that he’s my “youngest.” In comparison to his GIANT brother (who is actually only 18 months older) this is understandable…but his TWIN SISTER? Regardless, he…

They Coulda’ Been Great – December 2013

  Our December sound bites, etc. via Facebook… (What is this? All answers are HERE.) December 2 8:59 a.m. “Santa doesn’t like it when kids are late for school!” Seriously – I just went there. 3:40 p.m. Oliver: Mom, can I have some ice cream? Me: Oliver! You JUST had popcorn, and in a couple…

  The holidays are all about extremes. Peace on earth! Goodwill to men! Black Friday mobs! Road Rage over hour-long back ups! But that’s life, right? Every high is balanced by a low. And over the holidays, I combine the two like that last cocktail you didn’t really need…shaken or stirred…mixed or mingled…blended or beaten…
