Romper Article: Am I Reliving My Mother’s Trauma Through My Pregnancy?

It was really late at night, and I woke up in my Little Mermaid sleeping bag on the floor of my cousin Tommy’s bedroom screaming and crying for my mom. But my mom was at the hospital delivering my baby brother. I was 5, and I remember it all very clearly. Something didn’t feel right, … More Romper Article: Am I Reliving My Mother’s Trauma Through My Pregnancy?

Things I’ve Learned (So Far) from Working at Home

Cats are just as annoying (if not more so) as human coworkers. There’s still drama, but instead of finding out that so and so slept with so and so from accounting, there’s cleaning up the hairballs, keeping them from tearing down the blinds and constantly breaking up cat fights. Also, your coworkers in an office (usually? hopefully?) … More Things I’ve Learned (So Far) from Working at Home

Weekend filled with things for which to be grateful

After lounging in bed for a bit, Greg and I decided to go get some brunch at Stone Soup Kitchen, our favorite breakfast spot in Atlanta that uses local ingredients, including local coffee from Bartdorf & Bronson (my fav.), and they have an absolutely GORGEOUS enclosed patio with a ton of beautiful flowers and plants, … More Weekend filled with things for which to be grateful

I love me some October

Greg and I celebrated our four year anniversary on Tuesday by going to the local estate/antique shop and “thrifting” for a new side table and eating dinner at Café Alsace—the restaurant  he took me to the night he proposed.  It was a perfect romantic, low-key celebration. That seems to be more our style as of late, which is … More I love me some October

The Break-Up

I didn’t realize I would feel this depressed.  I am annoyed with life. I am annoyed with myself. I want to punch everyone in sight. I want to hug everyone in sight. I laugh for no reason and then, suddenly, I feel like my life is over and I sob and hug myself in desperation…because … More The Break-Up

Bible Belt

Nothing makes you feel more like an alcoholic than standing in the “alcohol line” at Kroger waiting until 12:31 to pay for your sin (champagne for mimosas to drink during a crafting party) and having all the other people that come up to the line told if they don’t have alcohol they can come on … More Bible Belt

I’m going to miss listening to “Cahhh Talk on NP-Ahhhh”

Yesterday, Click and Clack, the Tappet brothers, (Tom and Ray Magliozzi) who always warn their listening audience, “Don’t drive like my brother!  And don’t drive like my brother!” announced to the world they were retiring in September after their 25-year run of hosting  their radio show “Car Talk” on NPR. I found out  they were … More I’m going to miss listening to “Cahhh Talk on NP-Ahhhh”

Fridays

I both loathe, and love, how every Friday, everyone’s phrase of the day is one of the following: “Happy Friday!” or “Happy Friday to us!” or “Hooray, Friday!” or “Thank god, we made it!” Love, because everyone is in a pretty good mood and you can feel the excitement swirling in the air. Plus, this … More Fridays
