#93: At Least One True Thing

#93: At Least One True Thing

So, apparently, Christmas happened when I wasn’t looking! Though it’s not like I let it completely slip up on me. I went to a few Christmas parties and ate some candy canes and there was a 7 foot decorated conifer in my living room. I bought gifts and wrapped gifts and got gifts. I have […]

#70: The Plumbing Diaries – Blowtorch Edition

When I embarked on the glorious journey of homeownership 15 years ago, I did not own a drill or a toolbox or have the slightest idea how to fix anything. My real estate agent informed me of a delightful option known as a Home Warranty, a service providing me with a phone number to call […]

#67: On Why I Avoid the Mother’s Day Church Service

Call me selfish.  Call me cowardly.  Call me overdramatic   But I stand by the promise I made to myself about 3 or 4 years ago:  I don’t go to church on Mother’s Day. Most people would assume that Valentine’s Day is the worst holiday for singles, but for me, the hardest holiday is Mother’s Day.  If you’ve never […]

#54: The Sickest of Sick Days

You know the feeling – the awful, awful feeling. The coughing, sneezing, stuffy-head-so-you-can’t-sleep feeling. Sometimes, you are sick and the reason why is obvious.

I had carefully orchestrated the ordering and subsequent arrival of the vanity, as well as the countertop and new toilet, to coincide with the arrival of my also pre-assembled handyman. So you can imagine […]

#47: On How to Survive Valentine’s Day

When I wrote my last post about surviving winter, I decided that surviving Valentine’s Day needed its own separate entry. The difficulties of Valentine’s Day for a single girl are pretty much self-explanatory, and I previously mentioned that our house burned down on Valentine’s day, so I don’t think it’s necessary to explain why this […]

#45: On How to Survive the Winter

It should come as no surprise that I don’t exactly LOVE winter. I don’t exactly hate it, but it’s not my favorite time of year. I love spring: Spring Break, flowers, happy colors, Easter, new spring clothes, warmer weather, LIGHT!!!! I love summer: Summer Vacation!!!! Freedom!!! Time to play, relax, hang out by the pool, […]
