Every time I get in my car, my phone likes to tell me how close I am to my house. I’m not sure why does this. I’m at the grocery store and I get in my car and look at the phone screen and it says helpfully, “12 minutes to get home; take Washington Road.”Continue reading “How do I get home from here?”
So I got this in the mail. It is addressed to me personally. It is a beautiful glossy 50 page catalog dedicated exclusively to the Chevrolet Corvette. I don’t know who is in charge of choosing the marketing demographic for people they send this mailing to, but they need to be fired immediately. Anyone whoContinue reading “A Marketing Fail”
I’m very annoyed with Two-Hours-Ago Me, who chose to read a book after dinner. I just came in to the kitchen and found that the dishes aren’t done.

Thanks, guys! I’ll let you handle it for me. The only problem is that I can’tContinue reading “Thanks for the groceries”
I came into the kitchen to find horrible smell and a short note of explanation from Little Girl, aged 10. Well. That was helpful….
So… it’s Valentine’s Day again, that special time of year when the depth of your man’s love is measured by how much he’s willing be overcharged for flowers. Can you tell I’m not exactly a fan? I really don’t care for the High Holidays of Obligation: Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day. They seemContinue reading “Valentine’s Day”
I was at at church on a Wednesday evening, sitting in my ladies’ Bible study group. On the other side of the wall, the kids were playing games. We could hear them laughing and and jumping, and occasionally yelling. We made a few little jokes about how it sounded like fun over there. When weContinue reading “What’s going on over there?”
