Did I Say That Out Loud?

23 November 2022 at 13:38
Score One For The Good Guys Some months ago I shared a booze-fueled, rant-y post about how the workers compensation insurer managing my husband’s injury case mandated an independent evaluation of his hearing. They had previously questioned his need for bilateral hearing aids given that only one ear was torn from his head. How do […]

In For The Long Haul?

27 September 2022 at 15:31
I certainly hope not. I did all the right stuff for 2-1/2 years. I stayed home. I wore a mask. I cleansed and sanitized my hands so often they cracked and bled. I even somehow managed to evade COVID when my husband, with whom I shared a bed right up til his diagnosis day, succumbed […]

And Again There Were Three

7 September 2022 at 09:57
Just prior to giving birth to my second child I distinctly remember reflecting that those moments early in my labor were the last moments we would share as a family of three. I had no idea how bringing home a new life would completely alter the dynamic my husband, toddler, and I had created, but […]

I Might Get A Little Drunk

22 August 2022 at 18:43
Is what I said to my husband just now after sifting through the day’s mail. Actually what I said was, β€œI’m gonna go sit outside til my head doesn’t feel like it’ll fucking explode and I might get a little drunk, not gonna lie.” But obviously that is too cumbersome a blog post title. My […]

Character

20 August 2022 at 10:09
My younger son’s football team got crushed in their season opener last night. Not in the little β€œyeah, they got beat” kind of way, but in the β€œthey got their asses handed to them” kind of way. After a good defensive first quarter, it was a pile-on the rest of the way. Somewhere in the […]

I Can’t Understand It For You

6 July 2022 at 19:29
But I’ll try to explain. Actually, I won’t. Or more likely can’t. Nearly three years after purchasing them, my Last Summer on Earth 2020 2021 2022 ticket barcodes were finally scanned last Monday night. After their tour had been delayed twice, my Barenaked Ladies, et al. took the Chicago stage. I spent Canada Day evening […]

Hey Look Ma, I Made It

6 June 2022 at 12:48
My big kid graduated from high school! Milestone events like a graduation create space for reflection, and I’ve been taking a hard, long look in my rearview mirror this past week. I see my son on his first day of school, I see him performing flawlessly at his first piano recital and drumline competition, I […]

A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That

30 April 2022 at 08:58
I want to relay a sequenced narrative–it’s a critical skill I teach my students in speech-language therapy, but I find my brain (mis)firing on all cylinders and in nonlinear fashion these days. In lieu of sequence and organization, this post is presented by scattershot bullet points. And if you think it’s hard to read, just […]

No Foolin’

1 April 2022 at 07:11
I did it!! Today may be April Fools Day, but this is no joke: you helped me raise $3,742 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association during the month of March, so really WE did itβ€”certainly I did not go it alone. Who among us does? The idea was to march in March, commit to 10,000 steps […]

Livin’ On A Prayer

15 March 2022 at 21:31
Only because the chorus screams, β€œOh, we’re halfway there. . .” You KNOW you sang it in tune, didn’t you? Yeah, ya did. Hi, hi. Just a quick mid-month update on my March for MDA. We’re officially at the halfway point and I’m pleased to announce that halfway through the month, I am more than […]
