family shenanigans

Tomorrow we’re going to the rodeo!

Let me back up a little. Mary moved in in August, from the faraway, almost mythical land of Idaho. Idaho, which is filled with nature and the wild and livestock and cowboys and indians. Most notably for Mary, were the cowboys and their horses and bulls. You see, Mary wants to become a bull rider, or… Continue reading Tomorrow we’re going to the rodeo!

Countdown

I've reached that part of the summer time when my countdown to the end of my freedom is in full force. Two weeks from yesterday I return to my little third grade classroom and begin yet another school year. So I have less than 14 days to revel in the summer time, and what am… Continue reading Countdown

Merry Christmas

We live in a world where things come first and people come second. Every once in a while we get things right and put back in order, and do things the right way. I didn't get to see the majority of my family for Christmas this year, which is fairly common for us, but was… Continue reading Merry Christmas

If you pray, please pray

Soooo, Irma is coming through Naples, my hometown. And we're here, me and my insane old dad. He won't go. He won't even go to a shelter nearby, let alone my boyfriend's house which is built to withstand at least some measure of hurricane. Even he and his family are leaving for the eastern coast… Continue reading If you pray, please pray

Hurricane Irma

Up until now the scariest thing about Florida has been how awful drivers are. Now it's a 50/50 toss up between shitty traffic navigators and a Cat 5 hurricane headed our way. Irma's a little scary, right? I just moved in with family (long story for another day) in Naples. I was already in Naples,… Continue reading Hurricane Irma

November 8th

How could I write on November 8th and fail to mention the fact that I need to go vote today? I feel dirty even just thinking about it - we have no good options! Would we rather an inexperienced man with no political background and a hot-headed propensity for getting himself in awkward positions be… Continue reading November 8th

November 2nd

My best friend is moving away. He really needs to get out of here, there's no denying that. He's been stuck here far too long, and (probably) nothing could be better for him right now than getting out of dodge. So I'm really happy for him. Adios, Florida. Minnesota is gonna be so lovely this… Continue reading November 2nd

I Woke Up 25

Yesterday morning I woke up 25. Amid the shit-storm that has rained down on me in the past week, I am not surprised that upon waking I managed to get half way through the day without realizing that it was my birthday. The realization finally hit as I wrote the date next to my signature… Continue reading I Woke Up 25

A Travel Update

Since I am on the road I thought maybe an update is in order. I left New Hampshire and drove through Canada to Michigan to drop my little sisters at their mom's house. Then I set off again and spent last night at my best friend's apartment in DC. I was going to set off… Continue reading A Travel Update

Another Adventure is Nigh

Today is Thursday. I have the weekend to finish packing the rest of my belongings and be on my way by Tuesday. The end of one chapter of your life and the opening of the next is a volatile time. Transitions can bring out the best and the worst in people. Until the past week… Continue reading Another Adventure is Nigh
