Just stay home

Once Upon a Time, I worked at Disneyland. And I had a great time, I honestly did. But there was always one downside- Disneyland is open 365 days a year. So if you were new, it guaranteed you’d get the worst holiday shifts. Working during dinner time on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas, until midnight

Yesterday’s Vlog and Today’s Thoughts

Oops – I forgot to post the Vlog here yesterday: So tell me, what was YOUR all time favorite costume… and how badly do you want me to get TheBoy on the Vlog? This morning, as I pulled up to the elementary school, the street ahead was filled with utility trucks. Water main. And as

Everyone Hail to to the Pumpkin Song

(I’m 90% sure I’ve already used ‘This is Halloween’ as a post title) I really don’t have much to say, other than I’m in the midst of a lot of things. With Halloween on Thursday, I’ve got character parades to prepare for and a class Halloween Party to supervise. I love the way that the

Vlog 20: Whitney’s Horrible No Good Icky Day

Ever have a day where nothing seems to go right? Sadly, I recorded this around noon yesterday… and the day did get worse. The Oldest Kidlet was in a bad mood, the Little Kidlet didn’t want to let go of me, the convenience store pulled up a ticket for the wrong lotto draw (which isn’t

Ready for a change.

This is me. Today. I have a long history of weirdness going on with trips to the bank. Where people tend to flirt with me. It all started with a female teller who slipped me her number, and then the next week I had a five minute conversation with a guy about my writing. And

[Vlog] LK Takes Over the Vlog

This week, I have a very special guest (okay, he’s the only special guest I’ve had on the vlog so far) – the Little Kidlet! I’ll be honest, we had a blast filming this one. Yes, the Little Kidlet watches videos on YouTube. Last year’s Christmas List? He and the Oldest Kidlet put them together

The Redskins: Time for a Change

Recently the owner of the Washington Redskins (Daniel Snyder) commented that he’d never change the name of the team, despite the fact that people have long complained that it’s a racial slur. In a twist that’s made me happy, a lot of media outlets and journalists have objected to calling them the Redskins and simply

Recipe Friday: DIY Ramen.

I’m sort of taking a sick day- I got the cold that TheBoy had last weekend, and that the bulk of the Little Kidlet’s kindergarten class seem to have. While I’ve been good about washing my hands at home, and using hand sanitizer when I was in the classroom (I volunteer), there’s only so much

Vlog 18: Whitney vs the Piano.

It’s that time again- after last week’s vlog, I got a few people who had no idea that I sing. So I put this video together. Yeah, my piano needs to be tuned. That will happen eventually. Have any questions? Ask me! I might put them in a future vlog. 🙂 Comments, I respond to

This is Halloween! (Almost)

Halloween is upon us! Amidst the deluge of pumpkin flavored products (avoid the Pumpkin Spice M&Ms), we’ve been gearing up for the holiday. The kidlets have picked out their costumes for the year- Thor and Captain America. Costumes bought, props procured. You didn’t think I’d miss the chance to play Thor for a bit… not
