Dare I disagree with Mr. Gump's Mama? Dare I say that life isn't "like a box of chocolates," but is, instead, a roller-coaster ride? Because that's how I feel right now. No sooner is something resolved than something else breaks. There have been some recent developments that we haven't shared with you guys. Not because… Continue reading The Hunt
Perhaps it's rude to write a blog while sitting in a funeral home, but hey, it's what I do. I'm also the kind of person to make a joke and think of funny memories at a place like this. Someone has to brighten things up. (Insert eye roll here.) I know wakes are supposed to… Continue reading Birth, Death, In-Between
Goodness, I hope I caught all the December holidays in that title! It's December. Tis the season to bicker over how to wish someone happiness and joy. Which to me is complete nonsense. ***WARNING*** The below is how I view religion, which some may find offensive. Here's the thing. If I go to someone's home,… Continue reading Happy Christmahanakwanzikayule!
The holidays are always a fun time for all, including us. Though some of us (ahem--Catie) get a little extra stressed because they have to host. I get it. There's a lot to do: plan, buy, cook, serve. Some like this, others want that, and throw allergies into the mix for an extra helping of… Continue reading Happy-Happy-Joy-Joy
Hi there, Catie here! Has anyone else noticed that it's Thanksgiving week here in the US? Because someone should have sent me a memo or something this year. I remembered that we agreed to host Paul's family this year at some point during the summer but that was so long ago that it was really… Continue reading Happy HoliDaze?!?!
Nah. Though I can understand how people do a lot of things they shouldn't for money, I don't see it as evil. Money is a tool; just like a car, or a toothbrush. It's something people use in order to attain a desired goal. A car transports you from point A to point B. If… Continue reading The Root of All Evil?
Would you like to get into a passionate discussion in this house? Here are some of the things you should mention: Biggles/Felix/Horace/Prix (pick one) is the best cat in the house. This will open up a whole conversation on who's the best. We all have our favorites, but Prix is, of course, the cutest, most… Continue reading Oh, Those Are Fighting Words!
Yesterday, the three of us went to see a good friend of mine, my writing mentor, for a book signing. But before leaving, Paul grabbed the mail, and one of the items was a small package. I should mention that this house gets packages all the time, (not kidding, it's - all the time!) so… Continue reading Sunday Funnies w/ A Side of Wicked
September has been incredibly busy for me, and so far, it hasn't stopped. Which is good and bad. Here's the thing... I like to bounce. I'm in the middle of a novel, I volunteer as the treasurer for my writer's group, I paint and opened an Etsy shop for my doodles, I have a full… Continue reading Such a Flake
At the risk of sounding like your sex-ed teacher from 8th grade, let's chat about condoms for a second. A couple of posts ago, I mentioned that I didn't like them. And I still don't. BUT there's a reason for that. They dry me up. Think Sahara. That doesn't mean I don't stay safe. I… Continue reading “Plastic Wrap” Alternatives
