Between tonight’s episode of Parenthood and the continual footage of Chilean miners being rescued, I haven’t maintained dry eyes for more than ten minutes at a time.

And I just realized I have to change the time zone on this thing so it doesn’t look like I post in the wee hours of the night. I don’t ever stay up that late, y’all. Trust.

Uh…that is all.


Unscheduled Hiatus

October 12, 2010

Okay, so maybe I was gone for a little while. A big while. Whatever. (I have a signature gesture that accompanies my “whatever” statements. I’m sorry you’re missing it.) But anyway. I did things. I was busy! Besides the approximately eight thousand loads of laundry, I accomplished the following maaaaaaaaaaajor tasks:

  • I moved across the country.
  • I transferred to a new store.
  • I enrolled my kid in a snooty-style private school. (Where she promptly got sent to the office for wearing the wrong color of knee socks. For real, y’all? For this much money, she should be able to wear neon pink socks if her little heart desires.)
  • *We* moved in with David.
  • I bought jeggings.

…What? Jeggings are SERIOUS BUSINESS. Even the taste of the word in my mouth hurts…but y’all, they look great on my butt. My ankles look positively demure. And they look perfect with my favorite comfy ballet flats and an easy tee shirt. I have converted.

Anyhow. I am back. I live in Orange County now. I am cohabitating with an actual boy-type person. My kid is in first grade. Welcome back to my life.
