A Royal Wedding List

I think somebody got married last weekend or something. I could be wrong. It’s happened before. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I’ve never been the princess-y type. As a kid, I spent the summers barefooted, climbing trees and running up-and-down gravel roads, yielding foot crust an inch thick. These days, though the crust is somewhat less-so thanks to the pumice stone, I prefer my pink, camo Dodge cap and Tennessee (University of, not Titans) jersey rather than a dress. Pappaw […]

When Hiring a Photographer, Always Check Her References

A few days ago, I was in the kitchen making this… …so I could share it with you and send it off to The Boys before I inhaled the whole thing any of it. I quickly realized that I was going to be physically unable to tend to the persnickety icing and take photos for you at the same time, so, in a pickle, I hired the first photographer I could find to assist me. About hip-deep in the very […]

Ordered Randomness

1. In my bedroom, I have a stack of clothing that I can no longer wear. The reason I can no longer wear them is well-known to you at this point. Yesterday I needed a bit of motivation and decided it was time to see how far I’d come. I’ve come a long way, baby! Sure, I have farther to go, but I’m motivated. For now. 2. At this point, I have a few options for the stack, which measures […]

A Farmer John Update

Awhile back, I told you about how Big Daddy and the Diva had taken on a gardening project now that plantin’ season is upon us.

Big Daddy (aka Farmer John) pulled up all his spring crops, his Romaine lettuce, his tulips, his daffodils, his spinach and such, and replaced them with some of our favorite summer stuff. Oh, and the Diva, who, as it turns […]

About

About the Dissertaton 101 class I attended on campus last week: 20 people enrolled. 5 quit before the class began. 15 showed up. 2 walked out during the week. 13 finished, self included. 11 finishers were women. We hypothesized that it’s not because women are necessarily more intelligent, just more hard-headed. It’s an anecdotal hypothesis. Take it as such. About dissertation completion rates: around 50%. I’ve got a 50-50 shot. About my house: it’s cleaner than it’s ever been. Dissertation […]

Life, Hijacked By, Well, Life

Over the past few days, my life has been hijacked by, well, life. Although I’ve never been in a hijacking situation, I’m assuming my current hijacking is better than being hijacked by, say, hijackers. Enough hijacking. My point is this: in the next few days, I’m going to get wrap up the next installment of my Humor Me, Lord bible study, as well as post an entertaining anecdote or two. Maybe even a recipe for breakfast burritos. You never know. I’m wild […]
