Thankful Tuesdays: PRD

May 8, 2012


It’s been a while since I’ve written about being thankful, so here goes. Today I’m thankful for PRD.  For those of you not in the know, that’s (P)ast (R)elationship (D)etritus.  PRD are items (tangible or intangible) that you are left with from previous relationships, either because the items were gifts, or weren’t worth taking by […]

Thankful Tuesdays: Happy New Year 2012

January 3, 2012


I am thankful for time off. I was blissfully unplugged from the interwebs (except for the odd foray in when I needed to look up Ricardo Montalban and Corinthian Leather in Wikipedia, of course) over the holiday break.  But now I’m ready to catch up on my Reader and find out what you all have […]

Thankful Tuesdays: My Liver

December 13, 2011


Yes. I am thankful for my liver. My liver, and BEER. Last night we and a frouple who lives a few houses down from us finally managed to get our schedules aligned and made it out to dinner together (we’ve been attempting to make this happen for about 6 months now). Luckily, grandparents were available […]

Thankful Tuesdays: An open letter to Dr. Demento

December 6, 2011


Dear Dr. Demento, I do not know what you have your doctorate in. I do not know how you came to have your own radio show. I do not know how you managed to have so many cool friends who are so entertaining. And frankly, I don’t care. I’m just thankful you were around to […]

Thankful Tuesdays: Recipe and Recriminations

November 29, 2011


Ok, not really recriminations, I just dig alliteration, and I happen to like that word. “Retractions” perhaps? Yes, that would probably be the better word. Yesterday I accidentally fatfingered a twitter re-tweet. For those of you who don’t know, a “re-tweet” is when you quote another person’s tweet to your own followers, usually adding some […]

Thankful Tuesdays: Hooray for my brain

November 22, 2011


Would you believe I almost forgot again that it’s Tuesday?  Luckily, I didn’t.  It may have something to do with the fact that my brain wasn’t distracted by work as it usually is, because my VPN is down so I can’t work. And that’s what I’m going to be thankful for today. No, not that […]

Thankful Thruesdays: Another year, another blog

November 17, 2011


I missed Thankful Tuesdays this week because my dog ate my brain. If I had a dog. Anyway, I’m celebrating a birthday (um, mine) and I thought I’d trot out everything I’m thankful for that happened in the past year of my life.  I apologize in advance if this kind of thing makes you sick […]

Thankful Tuesdays: It Really Could Have Been Worse

November 8, 2011


Dear G, I’d like to take a moment to thank you.  Last night when you woke up at 12:45 AM, you were very considerate. Thank-you for allowing me to hold you down so that you wouldn’t climb on the headboard.  And especially, thank-you for not screaming bloody murder when I did so. Thank-you for not […]

Thankful Tuesdays: Halloween Success

November 1, 2011


Other costumes called to me from the pages of glossy made-for-moms-who-always-wear-makeup magazines. You came to me from the gently-worn store on my local strip. I adopted you with trepidation, worried you wouldn’t find a good home with us. Worried you’d be rejected and end up tear- and spit-up-stained, discarded and lonely on the floor. I […]

Thankful Tuesday: A Reminder

October 25, 2011


G was blessedly asleep late afternoon on Sunday.  I took the opportunity to visit some blogs of those who have been kind enough to give me feedback on my own posts.  G woke up, and I set the iPad down on the couch, open to Kris Mulkey’s blog which features a lovely header with the […]
