Mission Front Yard Leaves: completed. Mission Back Yard Leaves: I can’t bear to imagine or I’ll start crying and never stop. But then crab cakes entered my mouth. I had forgotten the power of crab cakes and how with one bite they can erase any sign of depression, anxiety or general sadness due to leaf […]

The Cottage Pie Haze

Last night I was under the influence, of Martha Stewart. And when you are in this condition meals like cottage pie come out of it. It’s a lot like shephard’s pie, but instead of mashed potatoes, they are sliced thinly and roasted on top of the seasoned meat. You can clearly see how this turned […]

Well, it happened. The break I’ve been waiting for. This might be my last post because I’m headed out on the road y’all. Turns out the karaoke leader at the birthday party last night works for Universal Records and he was so enamored with my version of “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!” that he […]

Night 2 of practicing “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” for Ashlee’s karaoke birthday party Friday night. This is either going to be really awesome for me and extremely painful for the audience, or really awesome for the audience and extremely painful for me. My version is going to end up being, “Man! I Feel […]

Singin’ For My Supper

Tonight I blew the dust off of my old Shania Twain dvd video collection. It was a gift. I was young. No judging. The reason I got it out is that I have to re-learn “I Feel Like a Woman” for my dear friend Ashlee’s karaoke birthday party this Friday night. And I’m talking dance […]

Fumbling Towards Ecstasy

tumblr_lblfc4RUkp1qdz03r-1

As I was driving home from work tonight I made a disconcerting discovery about myself. I am so behind the times. I was listening to my favorite compact disc in my red, portable compact disc player attached to my car tape deck via adapter, when a short in the wires caused the song to bounce […]

This weekend I: * Washed some windows * Washed 7 winter blankets * Washed the dog * Washed my face with a brand new bar of my favorite Burt’s Bees face soap * Washed and sterilized my kitchen counters * Watched Aaron wash his nose 794 times * Washed my hair (I no longer look […]

Warning: What you are about to read may be disturbing and unsettling to some readers. It has been rated OMG. Until tonight, I’ve never had mole sauce. Please, before you throw your computer out the nearest window, let me explain. I’m not even entirely sure I knew what it was until this year. And I’m […]

Debt Prevention Plan

No, it’s not too early for pasta. You see, here in approximately 15 minutes, I’m headed to Whole Foods for my weekly grocery run. Whole Foods is to foodies what Disney World is to kids. If I’m not properly prepared for this trip, I’ll end up spending my retirement savings on Himalayan pink salt and […]

The Crying Game

tumblr_lbgylc2dv31qdz03r

My house is crying. It looks and feels like someone had surgery a few days ago. It’s calling out to me, begging for attention. I think I even heard a snarky whisper, “stop blogging and start making me pretty already.” I point to the man with the missing nose and say, “do you SEE what […]
