Do Not Pass Go. Do Not Collect $200.

Oh Community Chest, your Do not pass go, do not collect $200 has been my life lately, except I haven’t been sent to jail. I noticed that my favorite pair of Ugg boots have a hole at the seam where the leather meets the sole. They were under the one year warranty so I called […]

I finally made pancakes

I finally made pancakes! THREE TIMES!!! This is huge news! Seriously, HUGE! I started trying to make pancakes around 1996 when my husband presented his breakfast making skills and I was all: I can do this! I can make pancakes too! As it turned out, I couldn’t. And this baffled my husband, and quite honestly […]

Bullet point Tuesday (on a Friday)

I started this on Tuesday …. but now it’s Friday. Oh yeah, I got the sinus thing that going around. I’m thankful that it hasn’t moved into bronchitis. That’s a big check mark in the winning column for me! Yesterday (Monday) I went home sick from work, where I was promptly met at the door […]

Our marriage is of legal age

Speaking of my favorite […]

On a scale from 0-10, I’m at frustration level a billion. Our car hasn’t been transferred to Sioux Falls, SD yet because the insurance company put the ship from and deliver to address wrong. It was listed as picking up and delivering to the delivery address — BOTH the same address. I can’t make this […]

Vader Vacation has a dramatic ending

  It’s Tuesday and we returned from our vacation on Sunday night. I don’t even know where to begin, honestly, I don’t. I guess I’ll start at the end, mostly because it’s fresh in my mind and mostly because it’s quite honestly the most frustrating thing I’ve ever been through. Friday morning we packed up […]

The time we stayed at Devil’s Head Resort

We live about 104 miles from Devil’s Head Resort in Merrimac, WI, which is where we were staying when we ran the Dances With Dirt Half Marathon a few weeks ago. I chose this hotel based the following: Camping as a kid has scarred me for life and have ZERO plans to ever sleep in […]
