I've had "Edge of Desire" from JM's new album, Battle Studies, on repeat in my car for the past week. Sometimes I get hooked on a song and won't let it go. This one in particular makes me all melancholy and wistful weird. It's tortured, longing, desperate. It speaks to me for various personal reasons I won't go into. It reminds... Continue Reading →
I'm compiling a list of things that "They" don't tell you about before you have kids of your own. The latest addition is that all members of the household will never be healthy at the same time ever again. We are constantly sick up in here. Sam is still trying to get over her latest...

Hey ya peeps. So i'm back in tn. NYC was all kinds of fantabulousness, as you've probably gathered by now. I'll post some pics here later maybe but we'll see. Most of you saw them on Twitter but since I can't convince all of my friends and family to get on the Twitter bandwagon I'll probably... Continue Reading →
Just when I'm beginning to get my bearings in the Manhattan neighborhood of my temporary home at The Gracie Inn, its time to leave. And like the last time I was here, I have been given just enough of a taste of this city to leave me wanting so much more. I'll be back, that's for certain. And hopefully for longer...

I'm alone in a bed & breakfast on Manhattan's Upper East Side. I'll be here until Sunday afternoon and I know that except for missing The Accountant and Sam, that I won't want to leave. Much more to say but I'm one tired puppy so here are a few pics...

For those of you who haven't seen my sweet Accountant in a while, he looks a might bit different...as in, there is much less of him (and I'm not talking about his hair)! The hat! Check out the hat! My man is stylin' and profilin' in that hat y'all! And what is it with boys... Continue Reading →
I'm back from my super fun girl's weekend girl's trip to Tunica. These chics are too much fun and we all had a blast. The good news? No one needs to go to Gambler's Anonymous or anything and no one gambled away any wedding rings or deeds to their homes. Also good news, our hotel... Continue Reading →
Angela took Sam's pictures when she was just a few months old and they were beautiful. So I knew I wanted her to take more of Sam. And she did! And they are fabulous!!! Go check them out!!!! Samantha's Photos
Hi blog. Missed you. Been busy. Don't expect much from this post, I'm just here to let you know I'm still around. Took Sam to the 'rents house for the weekend and had a great visit. She is finally starting to "get" that she has uber cool grandparents and and even cooler uncle. Who, by... Continue Reading →
So early and yet, I'm already contemplating bed. Doubtful I'll go but I am contemplating anyway. Someone is rapid firing some type of firearm somewhere in the vicinity. Nice. I don't get it. I want to teach English in another country. Always thought that would be cool. You can blame a Lonely Planet tweet on putting... Continue Reading →
today i feel random, tired, bummed, a bit depressed, a bit hopeless, wistful and cranky...all that with a little snarky thrown in. don't you wanna hang out with me? i went to the downtown library today on a whim. was going to get a library card as it's been a couple of years since i've had...

I have a walking-giggly-climb-over-the-dog-drink-outta-da-sippy kind of girl....
I have to say, this Halloween was fantabulous. Hubs and I used Sam as our excuse to dress up. He was a pirate and I was, um, well, just tacky I guess. Sam was a Titans cheerleader as you know. We went to a party at a friend's house for a bit and then made... Continue Reading →
Today was a trip to the dentist. A trip to the dentist for any reason means a trip down good ol' Nitrous Highway for me. Its like a mini-vacation for my brain. I really should be the Nitrous spokesperson because I truly believe that we'd all kiss and make up if we could just get a... Continue Reading →
