Teaser Video and Funny Tweets

WE MET OUR GOAL! Some time yesterday we crossed the $1500 mark for the Over The Edge campaign for the YMCA and 15 seconds later I started hyperventilating at the thought of rappelling down a 12-story building. (Dear Universe: Thank you for not giving Huntsville a downtown full of sky-scrapers.) I mean, seriously, every time I imagine walking down that building with 120 feet between me and the ground? I puke a little in my mouth. And then I started freaking about Dance Walking. AAARRRGGGHHH. How do I put an embarrassment pillow on my face when I’m the one doing...

This Is Insight To Way More Than Just Our Accents. 26

This Is Insight To Way More Than Just Our Accents.

This is hysterically ridiculous. I’ve been wanting to do the Accent Vlog thing for awhile and I finally did it tonight. But this is INSANE because it does way more than show you my accent, it shows you how INSANE WE ARE in my home. And in my brain. And how much I hate filming myself. And how giggly I am. Just watch. P.S. I have no idea how to make or edit a video. I just used E’s webcam on is MacBook and have no idea how/way it’s shaky or if the sound is messed up. JUST GO WITH...

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...

(I was going to title this blog entry “Funk” but then a certain song popped into my head and I wanted to make sure you were hearing the same thing I was.) So…there’s a lot of stressers in my life right now. Stressers? Stressors? Stressars? Firefox has no suggestions and I’m too lazy to see whether or not I just made up a word. STRESSERS. It’s a word for now, okay? There’s my Mom who is still in the hospital in Knoxville post-surgery. They removed the malignant tumor but had to take more than just a bit of her colon...

And Then There Was That Time My Husband Tried To Murder Me… 12

And Then There Was That Time My Husband Tried To Murder Me…

Many moons ago I took this picture: That’s a picture of half of my walk-in closet collapsed to the ground. It was taken relatively soon after we bought our house and not much later…various other pieces started collapsing as well. Up until last month we had no more hanger space than the average NON-walk-in closet because so many of the other pieces had fallen off the wall or were simply too wobbly to use. This is why the closet renovation is a must before we sell the house. It’s currently useless. One good thing it offered, however, was a room...
