Today I went to the DI on my lunch break. There was a really old woman looking at the books too, kinda blocking my view of the books. She was adorable so I didn't mind too much. Bright white curly hair, eyeshadow and mascara even though she had to be pushin 85. She stood up suddenly and turned around and said to an elderly man "Make yourself useful darling, carry my books" and he smiled and took her books and continued to watch her look for more.

I giggled out loud.

When I am 85 I better have a husband to drive me to thrift stores and carry my books.

Tonight I will make dinner for someone I love very very much. This individual has never been a picky eater. We've been known to live off mashed potatoes and koolaid. Her life has changed drastically in the past year and along with that her diet is ever changing. I love to cook. I especially love to cook for her. Her praise and compliments on any given dish inspire me to try new things.

She will not eat:

potatoes- no baby reds, no russets, no sweet
sugar substitutes

The list goes on. And on. And on.

I think I have decided on a roasted brussel-garlic-tofu soup.

I'll let you know.

One time Sarah and I had a really big party on accident.

I hid in my bedroom.

get money

I really wanted to sleep in today. I had it all planned out. I thought i'd sleep until at least 10 and roll around with the cats and be lazy. Make myself some tofu scramble with toast and tomatoes. It was to be a beautiful lonely morning.

Dear Dad: Thank you for calling me at 7 with the chicken noises that scared both me and my cats out of bed :)

My girl Meg came home just in time for us to celebrate her birthday! (I'm a little late on posting this) We had a quiet lovely dinner at her house. She's been in and out of town since then and I always feel a little void in my life when she leaves. We keep in touch really well. Calls, texts, pictures every day. So that has made it a little easier. I'm proud of her and am always amazed at her ability to stay strong when things go wrong, and they often do.

Meg, Ryder, and myself. That dress makes me look poofy. Oh well.

Relaxing after Ryd goes to sleep :)

While my parents were gone I was in charge of watering the flowers (FAIL) and taking care of Lizzy and getting the mail Etc Etc. For about the first week, Lizzy would not eat. I did everything I could. I was literally pelting her with kibbles and bits. I visited her every day on my lunch break and her bowl was always full. I would call Katie and Camille and they'd try to comfort me and give me advice. I was going to take her to the vet after about 7 days of her not eating. I came over with Lisa and half the bowl of food was gone! I was so relieved! Lizzy is an essential part of our family. I can not imagine things without her. We've always had pets (dogs, cats, birds, lizards) growing up but I've never bonded with any of them like I have with her. She is a constant reminder to me of why I don't eat animals :) I'm grateful my parents always raised us with pets.

If any of you like zombies, A LOT, please send me an email to We have some things to discuss.
