Side note- I recorded this podcast last week, so keep that in mind while listening to it. I didn't think I'd have time to write a Monday post, so I recorded this podcast last weekend. But I wrote the Monday post in less than an hour. It was a therapeutic post to write, and I… Continue reading Podcast #8- It’s Really Happening…
I was walking at a forest preserve with Mike a few weeks ago, and the walk stirred up my first ever memory. The path we were walking on. The position of the sun, the color of the sky, the trees and the smell of the air. All of it collectively reminded me of a specific… Continue reading Earliest Memories and I See Dead People

A few weeks ago, my husband spent half a Saturday helping our neighbors set up a wood play area in their backyard.

But we didn’t have any paper and pen. Because hello, stranded. Then, because we are so delusional from hunger and sun and desertedness, one of us ended doing the worst act known to man.

I love stock photos. A whimsical woman laying in bed wearing a party hat and laughing at a donut with a candle in it. I realize this is for a photo op, but what if it isn't? What if this is just her life? Psst, guess what? IT'S BIRTHDAY MONTH. This episode is jam-packed. Like I… Continue reading Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots, Episode 25 (My 50th. Again.)
