New Old Student

I know this will come as a shock, but I am going back to school! Again! THIS TIME, I am GOING to finish WHAT I started (an English degree, now with an emphasis on Creative Writing), WHERE I started it (The University of Georgia).  I am very excited!  I get more excited when I get …

Nike 9.5

Today, I took The Baby to Lenox Square.  I cannot stand to go to Lenox Square, but The Baby wanted to go to the Nike store, so we went. It took us over 20 minutes find a parking place. I'm serious. It is April whatever, 2021, and at 4:30pm, a normal person cannot find a …

Thirteen

We celebrated The Baby's 13th birthday this past weekend. His actual birthday is February 29, 2008, so until 2024, he will celebrate fake birthdays.  I prefer to celebrate on February 28, since he was born in February.  This year, he wants a new computer desk.  He has a perfectly good, L-shaped computer desk; however, Santa …

Pandemonium

I have not written in quite a while, and this is well overdue.  There was just so much to say, and so much not to say.  I would never want you to worry that I had become the Mayor of Crazy Town instead of the Psychomother that I really am. The Pandemic shell-shocked us, as …

The Ride

I have four days left. Not to live, though you might think that is the case-the way I am acting (from time to time)- four days left until my fiftieth birthday. I am very happy to be alive, but not so happy about turning a half-century old. This is not about complaining....more contemplative.... 😉 Time …

Of Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails….

We are making some changes to the inside of our home. I believe it was just two or three years ago when I painted the "Space is the Place" mural on The Baby's wall and bought the matching comforter.....Yes, he loves space and wants to be an astronomer, but it was also my tribute to …

MIA: One Elf and One Reindeer

I'm dragging, people. Badly.  I am really not feeling this Christmas thing.  My asthma is not great, so I had to go buy a new respirator mask from Home Depot-just to go into the attic and retrieve the 20 some odd boxes of Christmas shit.   First, I decided I would do the outdoor decorations. …

The Fan

Mini Me has the hottest room in our house.  We have a classic split-level home, built in the 1960's.  The HVAC system is in the crawl space, situated right next to Mini Me's room.  It's fine in the spring and summer months, but once we fire the heat up, it's like hell down there. I …

Snake Bit

  We have lived in our house for eleven and a half years. We moved in when The Baby was two months old, and I was still a raging psychopath from his birth.  It took at least a year for me to unpack. Even though that little voice that I have that nudges me in …

Grocery Store

Day before yesterday, I actually made a trip to the grocery store. I hate going to the grocery store, so I normally order groceries and have them delivered. Now, I know how that sounds.  It sounds all fancy and ooh la la. It's really not.  In fact, when I order groceries, I tend to spend less …
