I don’t do choreography.

With it being the week leading up to Easter, I’ve been listening to Jesus Christ Superstar on repeat. It’s been a tradition of mine since 1993- back when I was in a community theater production of Superstar as an “Apostle Child.” It was an oddly religious experience. We all worked together on the set, the

Why I fight.

I tried searching my archives, but I’m not sure if I ever did write this post. Every so often, someone that doesn’t know me very well will ask me why I fight for marriage equality. That for some reason in their lazy minds, that because I have my husband and 2 boys, that I can

The Mystery of the Blue X.

Saturday morning started like any other. I got up, stumbled downstairs, watched a little Supernatural while the kidlets screwed around on Facebook. We walked through the hallway about a dozen times, and that’s when we saw it. A big blue X on the wall. Either marker or watercolor. So I looked around for the Magic

Thoughts on TV: Season 7, Time For a Wedding!

In the last couple of months, I’ve gone from the middle of Season 3 of Supernatural to the first quarter of Season 7. I average about 2 episodes each weekday. Somehow it’s worked it’s way into every dream I’ve had for the last two weeks. (Not kidding. Last night I dreamt I was on the

Let it Bleed. On Second Thought, Don’t.

There’s nothing quite as depressing as filling out 25 pages of medical history for a new doctor. On Wednesday, I go see a hematologist. This is probably 2 years overdue, since it was around 2 years ago that I first had a test that showed I was low on iron. But here I am, with

Doing the Time Warp.

Over the weekend, TheBoy and I snuck out for dinner. We went to the same restaurant we had our first date (well, it was a chain, so a different location- but same restaurant). And for whatever reason, half the songs they were playing were from the late 90s. Practically the soundtrack for when we were

Can’t Reach.

Back when the Oldest Kidlet was 5, he started to get a little lazy. He’d reach towards where ever his cup was and would say, “Can’t reach.” It sort of became a family catchphrase. TheBoy adopted it first, I jokingly used it with TheBoy… and to this day, I can still hear people say it.

Tracking the Plague.

It’s funny. Living in a house with this many people in it, it’s fascinating to see how a sickness rolls through it. Who brings it in, who gets it next. It’s like our own mini Outbreak. I’m not sure who started this last one. TheBoy went to work one day complaining that he felt a
