One whiff of cinnamon pine cones and I am ready for Christmas! July 3, 2014When Mr. T said "You should save the trunk for storing something special," I think he missed the daggers in my glance.My Christmas decorations ARE special, dammit.He went on to ...

My Declaration of Independence: 2014 Edition

Ahh, Independence Day. Picnics, barbecues, fellowship, fireworks. And Moxie’s annual personal declaration of independence. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, I have health insurance again.

A letter to my newborn, while I’m still a damn near perfect mom

A letter to my newborn, while I’m still a damn near perfect mom

Dear Arlo, I was looking at you today and thinking about how right now, today, the day you turn 3 weeks old, I’m a damn near perfect mother to you. I think this is why I love, crave, the newborn stage. Maybe it’s just biology, evolution. But for me, personally, I think it’s more,...

#100HappyDays: Flowers in the Attic? No, boxes.

Where we shall be putting boxes now, thanks to T's hard work. June 17, 2014As a tween, I developed a serious obsession for the writing of V.C. Andrews--of incesty, dark "Flowers in the Attic" fame. Now that T's been fortifying our attic space for stora...

#100HappyDays: Quilted wisdom

"Life is hard; it's even harder if you're stupid"--throw pillow wisdom. June 12, 2014I admit, when I saw the stitched pillow in my mentor's home office, I expected a saccharine sweet inspirational quote. I didn't expect to laugh out loud at a little qu...

#100HappyDays: It’s good to be king

"I am Goliath and I sit where I want." June 11, 2014For awhile, I thought our 13-year old dog was stone deaf. He wasn't heeding commands. He didn't give any response to loud screams of "GOLIATH, NO! GO! NO, NOT ON THE NEIGHBOR'S LAWN. $%^*!"So I enlist...

Of Name Tags and Psychotic Birds

So I’m at this thing the other day, you know, one of those events where you walk in the door and they check you in and give you a name tag to clip on your person, along with a wine glass, and you feel awkward at first because you arrived alone so the first...

Welcome to our world, Arlo

Welcome to our world, Arlo

If there is one cosmic message I seem to receive more than any other, it’s this one: “You are not in charge of this rodeo, Janelle.” (So sit back, asshole, and enjoy the ride.) I wanted to have a May baby. I really, really wanted a May baby. My husband was off work for...
