The other day I called Megan a name that I call her all the time, affectionately, and while it’s not a nice word, she knows I mean it with affection– she even giggles like a crazed person when I do it. For some reason I asked her why she liked it. And what she said [...]

I listen to KCRW (mostly for NPR content) in the morning when I take Megan to school and when I pick her up. So, Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Monday mornings on Morning Edition they have a segment called “This I Believe,” which reminds me a little of the “Sense of Place” essays from [...]
I’ve been eating too much popcorn. How much is too much? More than once a week is too much. It makes my teeth hurt.
I am at 79 books for the year. Not bad. That’s almost a book a day. (5 books short) I was thinking about this as I was lamenting the fact that I [...]
I knew it! Mwahahaha!

10 Things You Hate Doing
Trying to find a parking spot w/ 5 minutes left before class starts
Having to fill up my bathtub w/ hot water before running a bath because our water heater is smaller than [...]
Does it ever feel like you’re stumbling through a fog of sleepiness? That would be me right about now. Also, I feel like I’m hanging on to the whole, “When then” thing. In parenting class they teach you that you should handle tantrums etc with the “when… then” attack. As in, kid wants ice cream, [...]
Here’s a pretty nifty smackdown.
Harold and Maude vs Love Story
Which one makes a more poignant love story?
H&M is the story of a boy who is so unloved that when there’s an accident at school and he returns home (unbeknownst to his mother) and witnesses possibly her only true moment of affection for him— when [...]
I don’t care if I got stuff mixed up. I love sleep. I want more sleep. Sleep is good. Sleep is my… muse. Do I not go by the name dreamy, I ask you.
I am so tired. Today started off ok, if an hour early, but unlike everyone else (it seems) I am actually happy [...]
I’m very tired.
Brigitte and I went shopping today. Apparently, I have become overcritical of things and complain alot. That’s just depressing. But then again, I do start almost every conversation like this:
“I’m so angry…”
“I was so irritated…”
It’s really annoying. What’s worse is that I just keep bouncing back and forth between 220 and 225 [...]
