Too Much Caffeine

Dear Family Members (and Roman): I planted three flowers yesterday in my flower pot. Despite your doubt in my green-thumb, they will NOT die. *slams fist on desk* Three things: 1) Lauren enjoys pulling off the rubber tips to the door stoppers in our house. It’s really annoying. 2) There was a rooster in the … [Read more…]

Encouraging the Youth of America

One thing I’ve learned in my short life is just how much other people enjoy trying to run your life for you. Examples: When you’re dating someone, they ask why you aren’t married yet. When you’re married to someone, they ask why you don’t have kids yet. When you have your first kid, they ask … [Read more…]

Cat Problems

I am not a cat person. I like them alright….but give me a choice between owning a dog and owning a cat and I’ll choose the dog, thank you very much. But as most of you know, Roman and I have two cats: Ralph and Lauren. Lauren is a goofy little black cat….and Ralph is … [Read more…]

Weird Wednesday.

Last night I dreamed that I was back in high school. Cue the weird hair-do’s, awkward social situations, and the endless stream of tests and pop quizzes. Yuck. One of my good friends from high school was in this particular dream, except he decided he was going to start driving a semi truck to school. … [Read more…]

Getting in your car and seeing that you have over half a tank of gas…pure joy. Opening your mailbox to see no bills have arrived…’s party time! Roman says he <3 … [Read more…]

Let’s Get Technical

Word up, yo

Everyone has their quirks, whether we want to admit it or not. So just for funsies (and in the spirit of over-sharing), I thought I’d share some of mine with you…. At least once a week, I try to put the milk in the pantry. A lot of times when I’m cooking, I try to … [Read more…]

Horsin’ Around

Every morning I leave for work before Roman is even out of the bed. So before I walk out the door, I always kiss him on the cheek and tell him I love him. Sometimes he is able to coherently respond…other times he stays sound asleep. A couple of weeks ago, I did not have … [Read more…]


I have been laying here for almost an hour. Roman is asleep, and Duke is doing his little leg twitch thing he does when he’s sleeping really hard. But I can’t sleep. I’ve had a lot on my mind these past few days…I’ve been pretty restless and a wee bit cranky. I’m not even exactly … [Read more…]
