Funeral Fails

So I mentioned almost two weeks ago (the last time I blogged, actually): my grandpa passed away on February 6th.

My Day With the Local-Yocals

My husband always tells me that I look at the negative side of things. My response is typically "well, what positives can YOU find?!" - but then I invariably go back into the deep caverns of my self-conscious brain and wonder if that's really true.

People I Do Not Like In My Community

I'm tempted to make this post just one word. Imagine it, you'd open it up and all it would read would be: Everyone. But that wouldn't be entirely true. I like my father, he's kind of cool when he's not getting all preachy on me about how I'm going to hell and need to stop… Continue reading People I Do Not Like In My Community

Vacation Wrap Up: Back to Reality

Of course by "back to reality" I mean that I am a rampant bitch again. Like I said in my blogged vacation reports, I felt super nice again when I went to my sweet, home Chicago for a close-to-three-week vacation. It was wonderful. I saw friends. I visited with family.
