Leather Jackets And Austrian Accents Optional

Last night I had a dream that made me think about my future in the movies. So last year The Husband and I sold our condo. Our first buyer fell through, so we had to put it back on the market. It was vacant for a few months — we didn’t list until we had

Beware the ninja realtors!

Recently The Husband and I celebrated a special anniversary. We got married a couple years ago. Glorious as that day was, that is not the anniversary I wish to write about today. Today I want to celebrate our recent one year anniversary of buying our house. Why is that so special, you ask? Because it

Road Rage In The Digital Age

The other day I realized I needed to rethink my car priorities. My current ride, Mrs. Roboto, is a 2008 Toyota Corrolla. I like my car. I especially like the fact that it has been paid off for years. Not having a car payment is wonderful. But my car is pretty lacking by today’s technology

Making The Fine Print More Fun

You might have heard that writers sometimes have epiphanies at inconvenient times. The purpose of today’s blog post is to tell you that’s absolutely true. Recently I had such a moment. It came at 3 AM because my brain loves to torture me when I’m supposed to be sleeping. And then it wasn’t even a

Time To Sunbathe Like There’s No Tomorrow!

I would like to apologize in advance if I accidentally flash you. (Yes, I will explain that opening line. Bear with me.) It’s that time of year again. What time of year, you ask? It’s that time when I enter into The Denial Period. The Denial Period starts in August and usually runs into early

Career Change Challenges: An Ode To Caffeine

It’s been a few months since I’ve been at this blogging thing. I hope y’all are enjoying getting a weekly dose of random musings. This week I felt the need to share with y’all some of the challenges that go into writing full time. Namely, I find myself struggling with the same questions: how cute

Team Edward? Nah. I’m Team Comfy Pants.

I think I may need to have a priest bless my phone. Why, you ask? Because lately it has become overrun with vampires. Every time I open up Facebook and scroll through my news feed, I see them. Said news feed is cluttered with advertisements for a variety of “choose your own adventure” games. Do

Party In The Bathroom!

The other day I went to the bathroom and thought, “this really needs a remodel. How am I supposed to have a party in here?” I should clarify. Said bathroom was not in my house. Bathroom parties at home don’t really work. This was a public restroom. And it was way too small. There were

My Points Are Better Than Your Points

Today I had one of my random epiphanies on how to make the world a better place. I’m sure you’re curious to know what I came up with, aren’t you? Did I solve world hunger? Eliminate homelessness? No I did not. But I’ll tell you what I did realize… The key to everything is invisible

When Furnace Meets Fan

I’ve heard it said that you should date someone for a year before considering marriage so that you can know what they’re like in every season. After being married for almost two years, I must say there is some wisdom to this idea. But here are some additional things to consider: Is my spouse a
