i really can’t believe it’s come down to this.

THIS young man started HIGH SCHOOL this month. There’s no other way to say it. I’m getting old. Since it’s now my official job to highly embarrass him as greatly and as often as I can: I’m so stinking proud of him. He’s doing so well, and he’s so smart, and handsome (naturally). I look…

how it happened

And now, because I know this is what y’all have been truly waiting for… Band Geek proposed while we were in Vegas a couple weeks ago. I know, I know, it was a surprise to me too. He did it in the Atrium in the Mirage, which is ONLY my most favorite spot in Vegas, and…

pee-pants and fuzz-face

I think I posted this on Facebook but never really wrote about it here. As you know, The Dog (who will always be The Dog, regardless of any other lower-case-dogs we get in the future) passed away earlier this year. We were all pretty broken up about it, which I posted about ad-nauseam I think.…

vegas madness

You’d think by now I’ve seen all there is to see in Vegas, seeing as this most recent trip a couple weeks ago was my eleventh, or some such madness. Well, you’d be wrong. This time, I focused on places I’d never been before in Vegas, since up till now I’ve kind of kept to…

oh my heck.

Oh, hell. Has it really been four months since my last post? I can hardly believe it AND I feel like a total jerk!! I have so much to share I don’t even know where to start. I’m looking back at my last post on my trip to Mexico and thinking how different things are today!…

cancun’ing it up!

I feel kind of silly posting this almost three weeks after my trip, but what the hell…better late than never! As I mentioned approximately half a million times, I recently took a trip to Mexico. It was my first time being out of the country since I was a kid and went with my family…

and then…the packing.

And now…the worst part about going on vacation: deciding what to pack. As I may have mentioned a time or two, I have a fairly extensive (not necessarily exPENsive) wardrobe. Which makes packing for a personal trip…complicated. It’s times like these I imagine myself having conversations with my clothes. Really. “Beautiful black ripped jeans, I…

look out, mexico. i’m on my way.

Well. With the length of time I’ve been away from writing, you may have been tempted to think that something nefarious had happened to me. Fortunately, it’s just I’ve been busy. You know, trip to LA, packing, unpacking, laundry…and MORE laundry…and getting my passport for the first time since seventh grade. Why? Because I leave…

selfie hell

So, tomorrow I have a presentation at work. I’m supposed to talk about my role at the company and the things I do as a Product Manager in IT. As part of this presentation, they want a picture of me to include since I’ll be dialing in instead of traveling (for once). So what have…
