Back to School with Boss Lady

Boss Lady has started classes to get her MBA. Now, I am hella proud of her and think this will lead to wonderful things. However, she’s still my Boss Lady. I used to have a Boss Lady who was unsure of her math skillz. In fact, she was so unsure that it was mandatory that […]

Mishap Week: My Mishap

So, I decided it wasn’t really fair to have others write about their mishaps without fessing up to my own. I have to say though: it’s funny how when you throw out a topic like mishaps, people interpret it all sorts of different ways. Because this is what the word mishap brings to mind for […]

Misty Water Colored Memories

As you may have guessed from the title, this post is not funny. If that’s what you came here looking for today, read at your own peril. For here, there be memories. Post move, we were falling asleep. We lay in a bed. Boss Lady’s bed. Remembering other beds we’d slept in along the way. […]

The Attention Span is Widening

It’s easy to forget how much children understand. Because there’s so much that they’re just so stupid about. I mean, they believe that a fairy actually wants to pay for their teeth. They think their parents can fix boo boos with kisses. They believe that there might someday be a zombie apocalypse….uh, nevermind on that […]
