Jolie-Pitt baby

30May06

So, the beautiful people reproduced, and their offspring has been born!! Rejoice and be glad, I guess… And now the paparazzi stalk outside, drooling and waiting like hyenas to snap the first photo of the little bundle of joy. And all the crazed fans cannot wait to see the picture of… a newborn baby. WAKE […]

“’You’ll get over it…’ It’s the clichés that cause the trouble. To lose someone you love is to alter your life for ever. You don’t get over it because ‘it’ is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes. How could it? The particularness of someone who […]


Well, I’m back from Wisconsin. I’ve had some rough things to deal with in my life… divorces, a falling out with my dad, losing my grandpa (I was close to him, too, but this feels so much more devastating), losing a friend my own age… but this (losing my grandma) is hands down the hardest […]


A little ironic, I suppose, that I just posted about my lack of a need for a suitcase, and here I go flying across the country to my grandmothers funeral. I didn’t originally intend to go, but I am really feeling like I need to be there. My only guilt is that I am leaving […]


*****NEWSFLASH***** If you live in an apartment this is crucial information… pay very close attention!! There is a very good chance that you share a wall with someone else!! (gasp!) These people that you share a wall with probably want to sleep at decent, reasonable hours. I know this is shocking, but stay with me […]


Grandma Songs

22May06

My grandma always had a song for me. “You are my sunshine” and “Once in love with Amy” were 2 of my favorites as a little girl. All kinds of songs that I figured no other kid in America probably knew because they were really old songs, and certainly no other grandmas sang them to […]


Oh, I’m still upset about my grandma, but some moments of normalcy have to be thrown into my life still, right? Thankfully I slept fine last night, after a couple of blubbering hours looking at photos and greeting cards she sent me. She was really the best. Anyway… I am a pretty “out of the […]


For Grandma

21May06

My mother just called to tell me my grandmother passed away this morning. My Grandma was… amazing. I don’t know how long she was married to my grandpa before he died (a few years ago), but they met during WWII. She had 6 children, and lots of grandchildren and great grandchildren. I was lucky enough […]


Luggage

21May06

My wonderful boyfriend recently had to purchase some new luggage. I’ve not really had a need for luggage, well, EVER, but someone gave me a set as a gift when I graduated high school… so I’ve never had to actually pay money for it. My BF on the other hand travels frequently, so he needs […]
