Today was pretty great. Hubs was off work too so we took the kiddo to school and spent the day together. We went to the gym and got our sweat on, then rode the motorcycle to a monstrously large parking lot so he could give me riding lessons without endangering others, next was vegetarian sushi...

By design, you are stronger than whatever you may create. Including the lions and tigers and bears now in your life. Oh, my! - The Universe
This one time...in Pittsburgh...I went to visit my friend Nora and we took boat tours and ducky tours and ate fondue and went up an incline and ate lots of snacks and went to the drive-in and played with her cool pet birdy and I went mountain climbing running with her tricky husband... I lurves... Continue Reading →
My favorite memory from my local DQ back in the day? When my high school boyfriend asked me to wear his class ring. We were sitting in a booth by the window and it was all awkward and adorable.

I'm wondering if she may be reading a different blog because this one can get tedious sometimes. But really? Her comment may have made my day. Friends... Continue Reading →
My mother and I don't do phone calls. We email. Because we live in 2013 and actually talking on the phone is icky in this day and time. However, in the past several weeks (dare I say months), we have been slack in even this most convenient and modern means of communicating. So, mom, I... Continue Reading →
I'm more like Melancholy Melanie today rather than Crankypants McGhee. Progress people, it's a slow thing sometimes. Memorial Day weekend turned out nice. I won't recap the details but here's a list of sorts...family walk on greenway, family cookout and subsequent soccer playing, trip to the zoo, puppet making and puppet show, gym, toy mini...
