I had a dream last night. My friend and I were in her car driving down PCH. Her shiny black karmann ghia. We were laughing and joking and smiling. The windows were down. It was fantastic. The radio was on, the sun was shining. After driving for a bit, i turned to her as she […]

Time Frame

As i sit here tonight twiddling my thumbs, i am feeling strange. My husband is away – again – and the kids are in bed, and i’ve finished my OC Housewives and it’s only 9:30. Now what? We’ve been in this house, in this state, for nearly a full year. Two months shy of 1 […]

I get to the soups, and i decide i can […]

SB Chronicles; Day 3

The husband is home again. I’m beginning to feel a bit more like a pit stop on his way back out of town for work at this point. He got back about midnight, so of course i fell asleep about 20 minutes before he walked in the door- at midnight. Then it took me approximately […]

Spring Break Chronicles: Day 2

I finally did it. I dragged my fat butt and my kid’s skinny ones to a nearby riparian trail. I have no idea what riparian means, but the city is very proud of it because it was on ALL of the redundant signs plastered all throughout the trail. I fished out the Easter Basket overflow […]
