One Hundred and Eighty

A week from today marks three months since I quit my job and everything changed. Before June 1, 2015..I couldn’t tell you the last time I was legitimately, not-faking-it, seriously happy. I mean, y’all know. You’ve read this blog. How many times have I talked about my depression and anxiety and the toll it wasContinue reading “One Hundred and Eighty”

“My life is in shambles”

Not really, it’s just in boxes. But the above is what I keep saying, jokingly, as an excuse for just about everything. Didn’t you just wear that shirt the day before yesterday? Yes. But I have no idea where any others are. My life is in shambles. Why were you late today? Because I hadContinue reading ““My life is in shambles””

That time of year again

I sound like a broken record with you guys – I have more things to do than I have hours in the day to get them done – but it’s so true.

The best day

My family and several of my friends get together the first Saturday in May for betting, eating, drinking, cigar smoking, cornhole playing, volleyballing, chilling and yelling at the television once every hour. It’s the Kentucky Derby and I love every second of it. The weeks leading up to itContinue reading “The best day”

Sammi: “If you get paid to be on Jerry Springer and I could pay my student loans off, I’d goContinue reading “Solution to that pesky student loan debt”

Yep, still looking for a car

I wish I could tell you I have a new car. I’d like to tell you that it’s gray – or blue or black or red – and cute and affordable and has low mileage. And that when I bought it, with no one’s help, I’m the one who haggled with the car salesman andContinue reading “Yep, still looking for a car”

You CAN read my p-p-p-poker face

Recently added to the list of things I can’t do – which already includes waking up before 6 a.m., hiring a reporter, calculus, watching any more of the Saw movies and singing Ashlee Simpson songs alone at karaoke – is car shopping. I’ve owned two cars in my life, the first bought as a ChristmasContinue reading “You CAN read my p-p-p-poker face”
