First Business Trip

He’s had short trips all over Southern California, but this morning we were at the Burbank airport by 6am, dropping off my husband for his first fly-out.  He didn’t go far, just to San Jose and San Fransisco, and he’ll be back by 10pm, but I consider this to be the first business trip.  He’s […]

Renting Rant

It took two weeks after we got our new phone number for my landlords to make the change in our intercom (although they had told me they’d do it that day.)  I don’t like the new intercom because it comes in through our telephone and I never know if it’s someone at the door or […]

With Love, from Me to Me

I have one documented experience sleep-walking/talking.  It came at a very interesting period of my life in which I was engaged to someone on a rock in the middle of the largest ocean in the world while I was stranded in the prairie.  The people who I saw most were not those with whom I […]

Love Is …

not buying your wife flowers for Valentine’s because you know she’d rather you not spend the money on something like that right now and instead emailing her an e-card from stupid videos.
