The Bloggess Book: Let’s Pretend this Never Happened (and how my life has changed!)


So anyway. I went to the Bloggess’ “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” book signing event on Friday night and it was marvelous. And I’m not just saying that. I was in the Bay Area with Pamela, my new best work friend, and we were done with our meetings in Mt. View by 4:00 at an […]

I Burst: Ruptured Cysts are my new Ouch!


Last night at 2:00 a.m. a big wave of pain washed over me while I was at the bathroom sink fiddling with the childproof cap on my pain pills. I said the “F” word, and the next thing I know, I’m lying down with my head on the floor of my closet and my husband’s […]

International Society of Hopscotch


I originally posted this a year ago, on December 5, 2009, but when I saw the amazing Mizfitonline’s post about her daughter playing hopscotch and the health benefits of hopping today, I remembered that I actually started this International Society of Hopscotch. Perhaps it’s time to hop to it again? In my ongoing quest for fun fitness […]

Does Sarah Palin mow her lawn? If I’m President, will I have to?


I have not watched Sarah Palin’s Alaska reality show yet, so I have not seen her house, or her yard on TV or in real life. But from the pictures, it looks like the yard is big, and someone’s gotta mow it. I’m assuming Todd mows their lawn, because Sarah’s so busy. I’m sure she […]

Politics and Beauty: Will Brains, Botox, or Photoshop get me to the White House?


Maybe I should run for President. There is talk of it. Okay, it’s me talking. Mostly. But I think it could be fun. I’d get new clothes, right? I used to think I’d be a horrible politician, because I’m not interested in politics, or politicians, or the intricacies of policy and law-making. Or fighting with […]

The Power of Sex, Joe Walsh and French Toast: Sunday Brunch and Marriage Review


I’ve been “under the weather”  this week, and considered canceling my Sunday morning brunch date with my husband. The relentless pouring rain and dizzying side effects from some new massive vitamins my doctor prescribed tried to lull me back to bed and a nap. But I was in NYC last Sunday and missed our date, […]

Waffles, Dead Birds and Agoraphobia: My Sunday Brunch and Marriage Review


Seriously? This is the picture my husband took today. As if he doesn’t know how to use a camera, which isn’t the case. At all. I did not say “You call yourself a photographer?” today. It’s pointless. So I started dating again. My husband and I are going out on Sundays now, so I’m going […]

“Mawwiage, that bwessed awwangement, that dweam within a dweam”


My husband and I have been going out to breakfast on Sunday mornings lately, so we can talk without kids and dogs interrupting every half spoken, unfinished sentence we attempt. I actually brush my hair and wear a dress, so that makes it like a date. Here’s how our date went yesterday: Me: “Can I […]

September 11th: 2751 Moments, 24 Hours without Twitter

Betty Friedan in My Bed


Note from @juliejulie: I’m going to fold my Posterous Blog, where I started writing little snippets of my daily conversations, back into this blog.  I wrote this post back in February, when I was trying to figure out how to balance home and work and what I really want to do when I grow up. […]
