Both falling apart and coming together

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:18:16 +0000

I just realized the last thing I wrote about was my eye infection (Hi, I’m Mir, and I’m SEXXXXXYYYYY), and then I promptly went silent for another week because my neck was all jacked up. Longtime readers may recall that 11 years ago I crashed my car into a dump truck and the dump truck […]

Ahoy, mateys!

I’m about THIS CLOSE to wearing an eye patch and calling it a day. I hardly ever wear makeup, right? Like, I’ll wear it when I dress up. Which is almost never. For some reason at the beginning of this week I was digging for something in my bathroom drawer and found some mascara I […]

What you see is what you get

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 16:48:14 +0000

It’s been a pet peeve of mine for forever, the way people sometimes recoil from labels or admitting that there’s anything less-than-perfect about themselves or their special snowflakes. So it should come as no surprise that I have some things to say on the topic of whether or not special-needs students should disclose in their […]

Batten down those dryer sheets

Fri, 02 Sep 2016 18:07:16 +0000

Welcome to another episode of, “Well hello there, I am not in fact dead, I have just been busy elsewhere and also I suck.” I have baked things for Nerd Night! I have fitted one hundred smelly teenagers for band uniforms! (That’s not a slam; we do fittings during practice and they’re practicing outside and […]

Back to the grind

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 15:00:37 +0000

Otto has this thing about asking me how my day was. I mean, he really wants to know, I’m sure. But he asks when he gets home and he often asks at dinner and sometimes he asks when we sit down on the couch later to watch TV, and he almost always asks again when […]

We are all adjusting

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 15:45:19 +0000

After a summer that seemed to pass in a blink, we’re back on a school schedule that has Otto and Monkey heading out the door at 7:30, most days, and often not returning until late in the evening. Classes have started for Chickie, too, and she was kind enough to remember that I needed a […]

Nerd Night: Mexican Chocolate Bomb Cookies

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 12:28:46 +0000

After a long, harsh (not really) summer, Nerd Night has returned! Even that is a lie, sort of—there were sporadic Nerd Nights this summer, they just couldn’t do it every week. And actually, the current campaign started last week, but I was too busy trying to get my child to pack for college and clean […]

It is done (and no one cried)

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 16:18:25 +0000

Y’all. We made it. Chickadee’s at college. Now is the appropriate time for an AMEN and a HALLELUJAH and any other celebratory exclamation of your choosing. This was a long road and I would’ve happily changed MANY MANY parts of it, given the option, but in the end it led her right where she needed […]

Live from the House of Pop-Tarts

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 16:14:53 +0000

We move Chickadee into her dorm tomorrow. TOMORROW. Today is taking approximately 593 hours, in case you were wondering, but also she is not done packing because GEEZ MOM IN A MINUTE. As for me, about a month ago I bought a case of Pop-Tarts from Amazon as part of Operation Stock The Dorm With […]

A happy ending after all

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 17:54:14 +0000

(If none of this makes any sense, go back and read my last post. It took the whole village—or maybe several villages, […]
