A 3-Blessing Family. 11

A 3-Blessing Family.

If you are local or if you follow me on instagram or Twitter, places I tend to document the mundane in my life more than I do on here, then you know what Sunday Dinners are in my life. But, for those of you unaware – Donnie’s parents and brother and sister all live here in Huntsville, and every Sunday we eat dinner together. We rotate houses every week, and every Sunday we gather together as a family and share a meal. This started after Nikki was born, more as an excuse to gather and hang with the new member...

2:30am is a good time to wake up, right?

I got up around 2:30am to fine-tune these some more and to provide other options based on other suggestions from you guys. (Heather – is “one breath at a time” good for the “om” one? You’re the yogi!) I woke up excited which means I’m on the right track. I never got the original tattoo because something seemed off to me about it. Now that I’ve fine-tuned this one I think my problems with the original were: 1) the font. The “r” was too “2nd grade handwriting textbook” to me and 2) the balance. I felt like the words on...

BLURGH.

YESTERDAY WAS A DAY. And I wrote a post this morning about how I wished I could be angry online and be passive aggressive but I can’t because it’s not the footprint I want to leave and then I published it and then I realized: You are stupid. That post about NOT being passive aggressive was the most passive aggressive post in the world. You are dumb. Go away. I ate a lot. I worried about my kid and emailed teachers about incidents at school. I felt guilty for not being able to fund all the extracurricular activities my kids...

Why I Am Such A Paranoid Atheist

I read an amazing article yesterday written by a Christian and relating some of the religious right’s “activism” to Jesus’ teachings. I mean, it BLEW MY MIND. I immediately shared it out on Twitter but hesitated before sharing it out on Facebook. I tweeted about my nervousness and was reassured by a few people. But a few others were confused, “Why does being an atheist mean you can’t share out stuff like this on Facebook?” And – it doesn’t. At all. But, here’s the thing. Actually – here’s TWO things. 1) There are Christians in my life that I love...

Snot-Filled Update.

I’m feeling a bit under the weather this week. I’ve got your typical cold, coughing and sneezing and just general shittiness. Nothing major or unsettling, just the general winter-time funk. BUT MAN, if something simple as a cold doesn’t just throw you off, right? It messes with your sleep (can’t rest for more than an hour without a coughing fit) which then messes with your mood and you basically become a whiny unproductive mess of tissues and cough drops. Or is that just me? On a related note: I’ve been giving Hulu shows a try and I started one called...
