real talk tuesday

This week’s real talk is going to be a little different. Instead of ragging on some company or practice or character trait, I’ll be ragging on myself for sucking actual ass at blogging this summer!

do I need a special degree?

Happy Friday!  We made it through another week of climate confusion as I sit and type this in a light-but-long-sleeved shirt on this very mild July 13th. Shout out to my squish-nugget niece who turns four today!  (Please bow your heads & pray my mom wraps the gift I got her for me. Amen. 🙏) So I […]

Stay with me, that’s as “political” as it gets.  Scouts […]

  You know that euphoric feeling you experience after a good trip to Costco? … Just me? Well, go to Costco.  You’ll see what I mean.  So much.  For so little.  And if you don’t, maybe you’re not ready for what Costco has ready for you. 😜 Anywho, I don’t know, I just woke up […]

long overdue updates

Happy Monday, blogosphere! Sheesh, it has been a solid… at least two weeks since I updated this dusty biotch.
