I just need to vent

August 6, 2015

It’s OK if you just ignore this post. It’s really for me to just put it out in the universe and be done with it. A little vent-sesh, if you will. So our new vehicle was broken into last night in the YMCA parking lot while Ari was in gymnastics. In broad daylight. And so […]

hot hot heat.

August 13, 2010

It’s official. We’ve been hit by a heat wave. Unfortunately I’m not just referring to the high temps in Ohio this week. Remember when I introduced our newest addition, Pepper, the adopted beagle mix? Well it’s been almost 4 months since that introduction. And we’ve had our share of growing pains. We think her last […]

still processing.

July 5, 2010

This past Tuesday I came face to face with one of the men that shot and killed my grandfather 19 years ago. It was the first time I have ever seen him in person. I meant to write about this Tuesday night, but, honestly, it took me a while to digest what had happened. I […]

just trying to enjoy a baseball game.

June 13, 2010

Friday night we went to an Akron Aeros baseball game. We received free tickets from one of BFs friends, so we invited my sister and her friend, and one of my bestest friends, C, and her boyfriend, T. We had pretty good seats {which pretty much just means I could actually see what was happening} […]

{ why I’m this way }

March 5, 2010

I’m not gonna lie. I have been majorly down lately. I’ve noticed. BF’s noticed. You’ve noticed. So first and foremost I want to thank you all for being so supportive of me lately. It has not gone unnoticed. I also wanted to fill you all in on what has been raining on my parade. First, […]

too many questions!

August 29, 2009

So I used to think that paying at the gas pump was easy. I love using my debit card instead of having to inside the gas station to pay, then pump gas, then go back in for the change. Until paying at the pump became a royal pain in the booty! {{approach the pump…}} “Please […]

the rules of life. learn ’em dude.

August 28, 2009

So I’ve talked a bit about this in prior posts, but I have issues with everything with people who seem to disobey every social norm in public spaces. It shouldn’t surprise you (or maybe it would?) that I was a sociology and anthropology major in college. I love trying to figure out why people in […]

Whatever Wednesday

June 10, 2009

Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.  SCREAM! AHHHHHH! Ok. Why the screaming?  I took a personal day at work yesterday so I could go to the doctor and get a holter monitor on to monitor my sometimes dramatic heartbeat. BF and I went for a run and did some rollerblading just to make sure I was being my […]
