Not that I know from experience of course… If you want to know how unstable something is, just put it in … Continue reading Burning my face off
If one is fun, two is better. This is how I live my life. If I have a cold and need Vitamin C, I go straight to attempting to eat ten of them. I don’t actually eat ten of them because Erin stops me. Some people have a gift of walking in right at the moment I’m getting ready to pull the trigger on something … Continue reading Two Times the Fun

Now before you ride me out of town on a rail for admitting to occasionally watching Brooklyn 99, it should be noted that I would be less tempted to watch it if its characters didn’t remind me of people I know. Granted the subject matter is not always Venue approved (certain laws of decency apply to music we play in the lobby etc), but it … Continue reading Brooklyn 99
Our family was lucky enough to spend some time in Mazatlan in July, and by “lucky enough” I mean we were smart enough to budget for it the rest of the year. I love telling the story of how I told my girls they could choose between driving to Idaho and flying to Mexico IF they wanted to buy their own plane ticket there. I … Continue reading How Many Pesos?
