Best day EVER

Something Other than God

FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail When I went to bed last night, this day didn’t sound very promising.

I intended for that to be a wry lead-in to a longer response, but it ended up being the kind of afternoon where things devolved in such a rapid and startling way that I… [Continue Reading]

The mental neat freak


FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail A few weeks ago I went to the salon to get my hair cut. One of the little lifehack-y things I do is to think carefully about what luxuries I’d most enjoy, so that when Joe or my parents ask what I want for Christmas or my birthday, I can give them a list… [Continue Reading]

If you follow me on a feed reader, you’re not seeing this at all and you thought that I quietly shut down my blog weeks ago, since having… [Continue Reading]

Now…where were we?

FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail I just wanted to pop in to mention briefly that OH MY GOSH I SENT THE BOOK OFF TO IGNATIUS ON MONDAY!!!!!!!!!!!
