TKO! Or Whatever Fight Lingo Fits Here! 5

TKO! Or Whatever Fight Lingo Fits Here!

Wow. I sure keep taking these long breaks from this here blog, don’t I? In six years of blogging (SIX YEARS?) I’ve never been as absent as the last few weeks. Do you know what this tells you? THAT THE HOLIDAYS ARE WINNING! It’s like some sort of cage match, first between me and Thanksgiving. I kinda finally took Thanksgiving down after a long and bloody battle, but then Thanksgiving cheated! And tag-teamed Christmas! WHAT THE HELL? That is NOT fair! Who has the energy to fight Christmas in the same match as Thanksgiving? NOT ME. I made that trip...

Party Animals

MrZ and I got all dolled up last night for his office Christmas party. He was taking a picture of us with his phone when LilZ (who had my camera) jumped on the coffee table to grab this shot. I am so in love with the idea AND with how great of a photo it turned out to be. I’m going to actually frame it I love it so much. We had a lot of fun at the party and proved how old of souls we truly are when we ended up taking responsibility for the leftover desserts because everyone...

Flashbacks to Hell Week 22

Flashbacks to Hell Week

Today is LilZ’s first day of exams. EXAMS. Do you know the dark and dreary flashbacks the word EXAMS brings me? DARK AND DREARY. I spent seven years in college, I studied for a lot of exams. Then, the four years in high school prior to that? ELEVEN YEARS OF EXAMS. Just watching him studying last night I broke out in cold sweats and felt the urge to make a pot of coffee and smoke a pack of cigarettes. How does he do it without caffeine or nicotine? (Please don’t tell him I asked that question.) LilZ and I have...

Tucson Wrap-Up

Sunset at Catalina State Park We are home from one of the best trips of my life. Not only was it exactly what I needed in terms of hanging out with my brother, which is always good for the soul, and taking a break from being a Mom which is what I needed to boost my energy for the holidays. It also inspired the photographer in me with new scenery. And finally? We ate some hella’ good food. Which is awesome for my waistline. Fisheye Lens at Catalina We discussed a few times how much Dad would have a) Loved...

Live! From Arizona! 2

Live! From Arizona!

We had a hell-day traveling that started with mechanical problems on one plane that we sat on at the gate for almost two hours. They made us get off of that plain after several attempts to repair and we boarded another at the other end of the concourse. After finally making it into Tucson 3+ hours later than we though we would, we realized while going to open our suitcase to get ready for bed: We made the most dreadful of all dreadful rookie travel errors. We left the airport with the wrong suitcase. While the suitcase we had was...
