Blogtober14: dream vacation

on night 14 this month of single-mommydom, with another 9 ahead of me, 24 hours on the sofa totally alone, in jammies, with a book, some Real Housewives, Chinese delivery, a bottle case of wine and zero interruptions sounds like the most perfect vacation i can possibly imagine. if that could go on for like…

Blogtober14: my biggest fear

okay, so aside from the recurring visions i’m having about somehow contracting Ebola while Spy is in Europe and then having to be separated from Miss Girl until he can get here and how totally. effing. traumatic. the whole thing would be, i’m not afraid of that much stuff. and just so you know, i’m…

Sunday supper + Blogtober14: what makes me happy

i’ve been trying not to double up on posts. there’s probably something in my Virgo moon that likes clean separation on these kinds of things. but for tonight, that chick can go organize some other crap in some other corner (god knows there’s plenty of places for that in this house). meanwhile, i’m going to…

Blogtober14: a secret about me

before i get into today’s post, i want to point out for anyone who’s keeping track that while i did technically post yesterday, i did my own thing instead of following the prompt and linking up. so that still counts as writing everyday! go me! now, for my secret. shhhhhh. you’re lookin’ at it. yep….

Blogtober 14: fall fashion

one word, people. pants. i still don’t have the pants thing figured out. this post-weight-loss shopping is totally not as fun as it sounds. but it is to be hoped that between my recent trip to the seamstress and an Old Navy order currently being processed, i will at least have that ridiculously basic problem solved…

Blogtober14: favorite quote and why

wow, another hard one! and this time, because there are so many options, not so few! i spent my day today 100% fucking off at work. yeah, check my timesheets. outside of having an awesome catch-up lunch with one of my favorite writer friends, i also spent  a lot of time reviewing some stuff i…

Blogtober14: my funniest childhood memory

a’ight, y’all. in all seriousness. the funniest thing about this post is how absolutely freakin’ absurd it is. could anybody please just give this old lady a break here? i can barely remember what i ate for dinner tonight, much less shit that happened literally decades ago. i mean . . . i am lucky…

Blogtober14: best advice i’ve been given

mmmkay. this is completely not where i thought i’d end up tonight. i had all kinds of plans to do my post today about the apple preserves i’m making. i’ve got the jars and the pectin and, well duh, the apples. and i even spent time at Michael’s yesterday figuring out some cute stylings for…

Blogtober14: if i were president

4 score and 7 years ago, i started this damn post. this prompt has been one hell of a hard one, y’all. as i said yesterday, i try not to get too political on here. but i also didn’t want to softball this one and do a “fun” post, because i think the issues are…
