Post-Holiday Funk

I feel strongly that I should warn you about the nature of this post. It's a whiney, first-world rant of the largest degree. Move forward at your own risk. I'm in a bitch of a mood. It started at 6:30 this morning when Wallace jumped on Pier's head. Piers slept in my room last night … Continue reading Post-Holiday Funk


Mornings Are Not My Thing

Nothing turns me into a crazy lady quite like routine. We're going on just under a week of back-to-school bliss. And for the most part, it truly is fabulous.

Most likely I'm experiencing a sort of placebo effect more than anything else, but I'll take it. Gil's out of town this … Continue reading Day 2 — Back on Meds — Strattera


No Simple Solution

I have so many thoughts floating around in my head these days, and I don't have a clue where to begin. So again, here's some randomness. Several years ago when I was finishing my undergrad degree, I only had two classes left to complete my Women's and Gender Studies emphasis. The problem was that I … Continue reading No Simple Solution
