Happy Place

I don’t mind the weather I’ve got scarves and caps and sweaters I’ve got long johns under slacks for blustery days I think that it’s brainless to assume That making changes to your window’s view Will give a new perspective So, yeah, the anxiety is getting me down, and I feel like I’m in a rut. So, we’re going to… Read more →


Thanksgiving Followup

So, Todd didn’t cry after the game. I know I promised Iron Bowl, Part II, but I am all out of witty comments. Here is the abridged version: We left the game, and “borrowed” a couple of cokes. We hitched a ride back to our car with Ned’s mom, Gwen. We parked at Todd’s old Jr. High and I got… Read more →

Sheer Bliss

So, Todd went to Chicago this weekend to meet fellow Auburn boys, Brian and Tom. And to see the Pixies. Yes, I am the best wife in the world for not pitching a hissy fit that he was flying to Chicago to see one of my favorite bands ever. (Yeah, right. You know I didn’t take this lying down. I… Read more →

The Streak Continues

Todd and I went to Athens on Saturday, for our biennial Georgia vs. Auburn football game attendance. My father-in-law usually gives us his tickets for the game when it is in Athens. He does, however, reserve the right to revoke this gift in case of the game being some huge, season-altering event for Auburn, such as both teams going into… Read more →

Wherein Todd and I Put the Hurt on Five Dozen Oysters

No need to worry – The kids did awesome. We still didn’t get them to try oysters, so they… Read more →

I Love My Auburn Tiger Husband

He just decided to turn off his game in complete disgust and take the kids to the beach, thus leaving me alone with Quint the dog in an empty beach house, watching GA on the nice tv. Pouring my second Bloody Mary (V8 for vitamins and minerals, vodka to kill the cold) and thinking how awesome it must be to… Read more →

The Quarry and the Death of a Rock Star

For the life of me, I cannot figure out how The Georgia Guidestones were built in 1980, just 40 miles from Athens, and I have never been there, much less heard of them. I want to go as soon as possible. Totally cool story! Georgia’s granite is kind of interesting to me, too. I would love to see what Stone… Read more →

A Tale of Two Sweets

We took the kids for ice cream this afternoon. Oddly, Rollie wanted a Sprite instead. Todd and I decided we’d all share a bigass rice krispie treat, too. Tiller went for the ice cream (birthday cake) and a handful of rice krispie treat, too. Sometimes it was hard for her to decide which to bite from. . . . I… Read more →
