Working over Labor Day

I decided at some point that I’d devote the long Labor Day weekend to wrestling the SSE-wanna-be into submission. I’m disconnecting myself from the ‘net (well, in a few hours—I’m not done blog-hopping yet) and stocking up on caffeine, because I desperately want to get this done.

But Shan, you’ve been talking about this for months and months now, so you must not want it that desperately, right?

Yeah, I know. But the more you want something, the easier it … Read More »

Reinventing myself

Both of my children are in school today. Right up until about suppertime last night, I thought I’d party like mad today. I’ve been working toward this day for 12 years, after all.

But I miss the short kid desperately. Like keep breaking into tears kind of desperately.

Not that I don’t miss the tall kid, but he’s really quiet and he’s in the 7th grade now, so I’m used to him being gone. But the short kid, he’s larger … Read More »

I'm back again

And I’m at RTB today!

Ezmerelda's Week in Review 8.24

Buenos Friday! I can’t believe another week has passed already. My sense of time has no doubt been skewed by Shannon’s working me into a state of utter exhaustion.

You can haz good dreamz and lol

So, first, I have to tell you about my new jammies. Sad, I know, but they’re so awesome. Walmart has the “Mutts” organic cotton two piece jammies, t-shirt top and capri bottoms, and I’ve never had more comfy jammies in my life. Seriously, even better than the soft, faded flannel sleepshirt I wore until it disintegrated. The set was like $20 and I’m going to live in them now. Seriously, I’m going to be the crazy author lady who spends … Read More »
