Again with the Reflections on my Birthday

The first and only earthquake I ever felt was on my thirtieth birthday. It was a pretty clear signal my thirties were going to be fascinating. My thirty-first birthday was the first time my parents met the Viking, and I fell even more deeply in love with the man. I already knew he was my …

She hung up her phone, and when …

I Just Forget Sometimes

mouth open pin up

I haven’t been around. I’ve been taking care of business. I’ve also been trying very hard to keep up my New Year’s goal of giving up guilt. I’m learning to understand I can only do so much and forgive myself the things I don’t do. It’s a lot fucking harder than you would think. My …

Merry Imperfect Christmas

ugly presents

Slowly  over the years I’ve taken the reins for my house’s Christmas. My sister hosts the family get together because she and my bro-in-law are amazing, and they breed incredible children, but there are still things my parents and I do.
