    What was YOUR Sweetest Day Like?

    Seriously. What is Valentine’s Day really about? Why does this horrible holiday make it so hard to show that you care? You can have all of the details come together perfectly… and then you wonder… did I buy enough? Will they like it? Will the roses die in my car before I get home? Should I pick chocolate and flowers up on my way home and risk the vendor being out of what I had my heart set on? Each year I tell myself, okay this year will be different… and it kind of is. Then we end up standing in an hour long line at our favorite restaurant and…

    The February 28 Day Life on Paper Challenge

I’ve recently added a Life on Paper Instagram account to support the group.  In my previous post I talked about the goal of the challenge is to write down our memories at least once a week… or to write down a few snippets of our lives via the monthly prompts.  You are invited to participate in the manner that is best for you.   One of the ways I’ve decided to embrace this challenge is by keeping a mini journal.  I’m a very curious sort of person and I’ve always wondered what my parents’ and grandparents’ normal day looks like.  What were their daily ups and downs?  Did…

    I bond with my children by holding them hostage

    I took a little time to myself. If you missed me, I’m sorry. I was busy snuggling my minions under a purple Korean mink blanket while we watched Netflix. Which was well deserved because I basically ripped their lives apart and reassigned them rooms without consulting them first. A room can be a part of a person identity, no matter how big or how small. This is the one part of the world that is of their own making. It seems like such a small space to covet.

    I thought you knew me. I thought we had something special…

    Dear Amazon and Facebook, Showing me ads of things that I have already ordered OR things that have not yet arrived, is rattling me.  The way when we were kids and you would shoot a paper football across the room to get my attention… …but this behavior has me up all hours of the night.  I thought we had a mature relationship. If you are going to target me with ads; You should be helpful and suggest things that I forgot to put in my cart or things in my wishlist that are on sale now. Show me what else I could purchase. (I mean if Target can use a scarily…
