Pain. 16

Pain.

Two years ago I said Goodbye to my Dad. Today I’m in crippling pain due to a plethora of reproductive issues that are always plaguing me, but seem to be at a pinnacle today. I feel like that’s the universe’s way of giving me an excuse to be in bed and grumpy. And also doped up, if I have anything to say about it. Nothing like dealing with emotional distress by begging your doctor for pain medication. HEALTHY! I really thought I’d be fine today. I’ve been fine lately. But I guess I’m exhausted since I spent all night wanting...

Crown. 20

Crown.

Crayon vs Crown from zoot on Vimeo. My daughter started a conversation with me last night about the confusing nature of the two homonyms: Crayon and Crown. I pointed out that they are not – in fact – homonyms. That just because some of us say them the same way…that’s not exactly right. I then did what anyone would do and grabbed my phone to start the conversation over again. This is all I’ve got for today. Because it makes me smile and I’m struggling this week. I’m worn out and binge eating and struggling to keep my spirits up...

Boring Ole Me. 6

Boring Ole Me.

It’s all over and I’m equal parts desperate to have my life get back to normal AND devastated that my life has to get back to normal. It reminds me of my family moon (we had E when we got married so we took a FAMILYmoon instead of a HONEYmoon) and how I was very sad to not be planning my wedding anymore. You spend a huge chunk of time and energy on one thing for so long, and then it’s over. And you find yourself going, Wait. Where am I? What am I doing? GIVE ME SOME HAIR TO...

The Young Prince…For About 12 Seconds. 15

The Young Prince…For About 12 Seconds.

Ah…Nothing says “high school” like institutional cinder block walls. I made E let me take this picture before he went on stage last night. This is how he starts out the show. Notice he’s in his makeup AND he has his mic on. HOW COOL IS MY KID? He starts out as the young prince for the pantomime story of how the prince became the Beast. There are no lines, and it’s done with some awesome special stage effects (I SO WISH YOU COULD ALL COME SEE IT) to make E suddenly be the Beast, and then he does a...

What You’re Missing… 10

What You’re Missing…

I haven’t had much time to spend on blog entries lately, with my crazy B&B schedule. I had a night “off” last night and spent it catching up on laundry and dishes and baking and housework. I did all of this instead of writing about any of the topics rolling around in my head. My family seems to care more about clean clothes than they do entertaining blog entries. SELFISH PEOPLE. I thought I’d at least share the list so that I’ll have something to go by when life calms down next week. Until then? I’ll fine-tune these in my...
