This isn't an actual post at all. Not even close. But I kind of set myself a new goal of posting something on here once a week and if I let my self-imposed deadline get past me even a little bit, it's a slippery slope. Seriously, let my hair be an example. I bought dye … Continue reading My cat is a master of disguise.
So, first of all, where in the hell did this summer go? (And based on some recent heat indexes, hell is certainly the appropriate word here.) It seems like yesterday I was planting my garden and getting ready to paint the deck for the pool season, and now only about five minutes have passed, but … Continue reading Summer screen time
Well, hockey season officially ended on Sunday (or the NHL's anyway) and, I'll admit, I'm still working through a case of the blues (but not the Blues. Gross.) I was really hoping to be nervously pacing waiting on the Predators to make some Game 7 history tonight instead of writing this but I'm not and … Continue reading Hockey Heartbreak
Lately I have been living like I'm auditioning for a live-action Cathy cartoon. I'm frazzled, want all the chocolate and, yes, I have said an "ACK" here and there. (It doesn't help that I also have an extremely round face and a love of blazers. Now that I think about it, maybe I just … Continue reading A Day Off
So, it's been a little while. Why? Well, there's been a lot of hockey, especially Predators hockey, on television (Conference Finals, wooo!). And a new craft beer place opened in town. (The Dam Brewhaus, check it out if you're local!) We've also fixed our toilet (ALL BY OURSELVES) and I am attempting to start a … Continue reading Testing, testing…
Well, it's happening. The cap and gown pictures have been ordered, the official school tour has taken place and the graduation date is circled on the calendar. My child is middle school bound and I'm not having an easy time with it. Maybe my emotions are running high because of the rainy weather we've been … Continue reading Middle (school) age
About two weeks ago, the family and I loaded up the car and headed south for Spring Break. Because when Wrestlemania just so happens to be a short drive from the beach, you multi-task and let the kid see the ocean for the first time while also watching the insane spectacle that is Wrestlemania. The … Continue reading Spring Break, woooo!
At some point a few years ago we started realizing that Brody was really good at remembering dates. (And addresses, phone numbers, sports statistics and, well, pretty much everything.) We all thought it was cool how good his memory was but didn't think too much of it. That is, until we realized the date part … Continue reading My Calendar Kid
Around the end of the never-ending January I started noticing I was beginning every morning in a funk, which totally went against the attitude I'm trying desperately to have this year. (Trust me, sunny disposition Emily is not a naturally occurring state. It takes work. So.Much. Work.) I wasn't waking up particularly grouchy (not for … Continue reading Facebook Lite
If you're from western Kentucky, then you know about the Eggner's Ferry Bridge. If you're not from western Kentucky but have been here at some point in your life and have driven across an old, terrifying bridge, then there's about a 1 in 3 chance that it was indeed the Eggner's Ferry Bridge. It has … Continue reading Facing a fear…(in tiny baby steps)
