When you turn to country music as punishment

My Romance

The thing about me is I am a romantic. In a huge way. Now my definition of romance is not about grand gestures (Note to John: don't let this deter you from acts of grandiose, this blog post is about romance in everyday life, and again, I repeat, should not deter you from proclaiming your love...

Our Sweet Day

This is how we do a snow/wind/rain (or whatever it was that forced them to cancel school,) day. I tried to stay home, just chill, but that beautiful light outside was to much for me to ignore. Plus, I have been feeling really sentimental about photographs lately. I tried to put all four kids in the...

So this is what it is like - yuck

The flu has hit me. Have you heard of the flu? I think I had it once before, and I hear of people having it. These people, I now feel great sympathy and confusion when I think of them. I hear some of them get it often - how do they cope? What do they do with their day? How much chap-stick...

darn you for ruining my pity party

Today wasn't the day I expected, but that's okay. Okay, wait a minute - let's keep it real. Today wasn't the day I expected, really, today was crappy - (sorry for the lack of linguistic elegance, I gave it some thought and this really is the best word to describe my day.) It was a total bummer and...
