The Hunt

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

Birth, Death, In-Between

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

Happy Christmahanakwanzikayule!

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!

Happy-Happy-Joy-Joy

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

Happy HoliDaze?!?!

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?!?!

Oh, Those Are Fighting Words!

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!

Sunday Funnies w/ A Side of Wicked

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

“Plastic Wrap” Alternatives

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
