Head, shoulders, knees...and knees?
Me: What's wrong baby?

To Do List, To Do List, To Do List!
Me: I have so much to do! I need to make a list.
Crystal: Lists have become my best friend. I have a little sticky note pad on the counter.
Me: I have one on the fridge. I don't want to write the things down though, because that makes it real. It's like Beetlejuice.
I’ve been super anti-social this past week, partly due to work, partly due to my disdain for being so accessible. It’s of my own doing of course. I’m a child of the social media age and I loves it. But when I don’t answer my phone, or text, or IM, or a tweet because I just want a little time to myself where I’m not working or being mom or doing anything for anyone but...
I hate being patient. I am a determined person, and will do whatever is both practical and necessary to achieve my desired outcomes (i.e. get what I want). Ironically, everything I want requires me to have got damned patience. Sigh.

Mama: Oh ok... so you sure there's no bun in the oven? Your butt is BIG.
Me: What!? NO! I'm sure there's no bun in my oven. I just gained my weight back, I've been able to eat!
Mama: Okay okay just asking.
I gotta go vote. All these greedy Republicans, and then the tea partiers and...– My mama. LMAO! I can’t!
Megan: The Slacker
Anyone who has dared to venture out on a non-traditional career path will identify with this post. My parents think I’m a slacker. I started my own business 18 months ago and have been pursuing it full time since January, after my unceremonious departure from Corporate America. (Being a young, single mom doesn’t help my case any.) Don’t get me wrong, my parents are...

jwillis: I’m sitting in my bedroom and I happened to hear a paid political TV advertisement of current Texas Governor Rick Perry going on in the other room. He is running for re-election and this is what he had to say regarding meeting President Obama at the runway of an airport not too long ago… “I… Yes! Vote Nov 2nd!

As joyful as I am at this moment (which is a change cause Ive been having a hell of a time with life for the past month or two) Im just in a place where I dont know. Like, Im confused.
