No book, wedding plans and co-habitiation.

November 8, 2010

There will be no book after all. I pulled the plug on the book project after feeling as if I was being pushed down a path that wasn’t right for the book. Most of the details I’ll spare you from – but, I have learned a few very valuable lessons. The first is that I […]

Tisk. Tisk.

May 24, 2010

While he was in the midst of folding towels tonight I remembered the first time John had attempted to help me with laundry. He had offered and I had agreed – reluctantly. And then, in my true defensive and self-protective fashion, I snapped something at him like, “you’re not folding them tight enough. Just let […]

At the start

April 13, 2010

I have been so wrapped up in my own happiness lately – with my work, with John, with Benjamin (and not necessarily in that order, fluctuates with the day or more often, the time of day) – that I have lost sight of why I started this blog in the first place. A few weeks […]

Never say never

April 11, 2010

If you would have asked me one year ago if I’d a) fall in love with a man or b) actually be caught dead on a golf course, or in this case a driving range; I would have clocked you silly on both counts. But you would have been right. Exhibit a) The man, the […]

Butterflies vs. Lead Weights

February 21, 2010

When I met John Bear I didn’t have non-stop butterflies jumping around in my stomach. I didn’t ache or pine for him. I didn’t daydream about him, waiting for him to call. Instead, I felt like a level-headed woman, slowly falling for someone who swept me away with his generosity, kind spirit, sweet surprises and […]

Holidaze

December 28, 2009

We’ve been down to Athens. Up to Cleveland. Back to Columbus. And now Benjamin and I are prepping to take off for Chicago. Then after Chicago it’s back to Cleveland for a wedding on New Year’s Eve. I should be doing something cool like leaving a bread crumb trail across Ohio and the Midwest, but […]

Love

November 2, 2009

My little sister wrote this unbelievable story. The main character, a young woman who has been mauled by a crazed dog feels as if the ugliness inside of her is now on the outside for everyone (namely the men she dates) to see. The short story is actually published, for real, in a for real […]

Man things (and a video)

September 30, 2009

When I first started dating John Bear his dog drove me crazy. Every time I would come over Murphy would jump on me, scratching my bare legs with his thick doggy claws and if he wasn’t jumping he was panting and staring at me, all the while emitting a subtle doggy smell. When I put […]

A messy business

September 13, 2009

“Are those poop bags in your pockets again?” I see the top of a bright blue plastic bag sticking out of his shorts. “I always come prepared,” he says. Always is right. John Bear is seldom without a poop bag or two sticking out of his cargo short pockets. I’m always telling him to stick […]

Ms. Summer

August 30, 2009

I will miss you with your hot, sultry ways and your wicked sense of humor. I’ll especially miss your ability to occupy my son for hours on end, you’re awesome that way.
