When I’m particularly frustrated at a person’s veneration of a celebrity, I often default to quoting a classic movie. Shout it when you know it: “Mickey Mantle? Is that what you’re upset about? Mickey Mantle makes $100,000 a year. How much does your father make? You don’t know? Well, see if your father can’t pay … More Mozzarella, Panini, and Pizza…oh my!
When I was twelve years old, my mother dragged me to my annual physical at our local doctor. Once given me a clean bill of health, I dropped to the ground with a sigh of relief. I’ve always had a flair of hypochondriac in me. Every stomachache is a burst appendix. Every cut is going … More He’s in the Little Details
For several years now, Lance and I have wanted to do a pizza tour in NYC. There were two factors which kept us hesitant: First, we weren’t sure we wanted to do such a ‘touristy’ thing. Tours are for people in places they don’t go to often. A city you frequent multiple times over the … More A Self-Made Pizza Tour of NYC
May is a pretty great month, if you ask me. It’s when spring really starts to take action, Memorial Day comes along right about when I start to wonder why we haven’t yet had a barbecue, and Hubby’s birthday is at the same time, give or take a day. But this past weekend was an … More The Force is with Me
I’ve told myself I was done blogging. But, gosh darn it, I’ve missed it. I’ve thought on and off about other ways to keep such a perfect chronicle of my life happenings and among the options included were: keeping a Word document (too easy to forget about/get lost with countless other files), a diary (my brain … More Radio Gaga
It strikes me odd how I can talk about doing something with little fear, yet when this certain something approaches, I react as if I never expected to be faced with the faintest bit of pause towards its happening. Then I find myself in a bit of a predicament. All the blissful ignorance of my … More Flying Solo
I realize my blogging the past few weeks has been spotty, at best. In fact, this is my first post this month. Yikes. I wish I could give a solid reason why, but ultimately it’s a matter of searching. Searching for what I want to devote the majority of my time and energy to and … More World Down Syndrome Day, 2018
Today I’m going to share with you the most annoying, then uplifting, then confusing conversation of last week. While waiting for the doctor at my six-month allergist check-up, the nurse came in to do the preliminary screening. She started asking all the questions which frustrate me. Not only do the answers never change, more often … More Hiding in the Mid 20’s
As a thank you for my planning our family cruise, my family bought me the Boos Block table I had my eye on since I took that King Arthur class last May. They’re the best.* *I mean my family, but the table is the best, too! I tend to keep new things boxed up for … More My Boos Block
If ever there were a holiday I defined as over commercialized, it would be Valentine’s Day. Men are forced into overspending for roses and chocolates. Restaurant reservations must be made weeks in advance. Attempts are made at the perfect words to say I Love You in overpriced Hallmark cards. However, in complete truth, more recently, I haven’t … More Give Love.
