Awesomeness Personified

This is short, cuz I have things to do, people, okay? But I wanted to share this with you, because this is…   This is Punksin killing people with her wicked breaststroke. WICKED, I tell you. WICKED. It’s her best stroke. Probably because most of the power comes from the legs, and I know for […]

I’ve Lost A Week of My Life

The sick as a dog thing? THAT WENT ON FOR. E. VER. I feel as though I have just emerged from a coma and am trying to reclaim my life. The house is a mess. No recycling has been done. My hair is a bird’s nest. I haven’t cooked, showered, written, or done anything beyond […]

Sick As A What?

Why do people say “sick as a dog“? I mean, do dogs often get sick? And when they do, do they FEEL AS SHITTY AS I DO RIGHT NOW? Anyhow, whatever the history behind THAT phrase (I’ll have to look it up now because I know YOU won’t), I am THAT kind of sick. I […]

Some of Us Are Dead in the Water, And Some of Us Ain’t

I am ABSOLUTELY FREAKING EXHAUSTED. I don’t know if this happens to other people, but I get where I’m so tired that I can’t eat. This little quirk of mine is an awesome weight-maintenance tool. That, and the complete lack of desire for food when I’m stressed, which, given how often I get stressed, also […]

DQ Does NOT Mean Dairy Queen

So there was OTHER shitty stuff about yesterday that I didn’t get into. Yesterday was Punksin’s first OUTSIDE meet. I’m trying to think of ways in which it could have been worse. I’ll start with the good news, though, because there is some. The good news is, she’s over it. The good news is, her […]

The Most Vile Thing on Earth…

has to be peanut butter. Next to Mitt Romney, that is, and yes, I’ve just given you some idea of my political leanings, and if that means you don’t like me any more then GOOD RIDDANCE TO YOU. I can’t imagine how anyone who is not White, male and rich could possibly conceive of voting […]

What Exactly is She DOING in There?

Several days ago, Punksin handed the Tech Guru her Christmas list. He looked at it, raised an eyebrow, and silently handed it to me. At first glance, I noticed that it was a short list. Only 4 things. Which is good, because we can only fit about 4 more things in our house before it […]

Short and Not So Sweet

There are life updates. Seriously. I’ve just been in too shitty a mood to go into them. Some of them have been good. Some of them have been not so good. And although in either case I tend to be pretty wordy with the here’s-what’s-happening-in-my-life posts, right now, I am so not in the fucking […]

Being Smug A Day Too Late and Why Some Marriages Work So Well

You may recall that, much to my delight, Punksin made it onto a new and vastly improved swimming team. I am excited beyond belief. They had a family picnic for all team members the day after she was accepted and although we didn’t yet know anyone, we went. The head coach was excited and surprised […]

Days 5 and 6 and My Daughter Is A Mermaid

So far so good! I made it through a week of reduced Lexapro without killing myself or anyone else! I thought it best, after what I’ve read, to reduce it in small increments, so I went from 10 mg to 7.5 mg. I’m trying to decide if I should go another week on 7.5 or […]
