In My Head

I feel all unsettled and can’t quite get comfortable. I have all these amazing things in my life. I have an amazing life, so run back and forth between them trying to settle things, but I just can’t quite touch it. I think about quitting, but I’ve been a therapist, in training to be a...

    There’s got to be something going on with the moon and people’s cycles this month. It seems to have been worse for everyone I know, including myself. So, I vote for waiting to make these decisions until after it’s over. I don’t doubt that they are all there and all real. But they may seem less intense after the period. So, that’s my two cents.

    1 – You should wait to re-evaluate after school starts and you have a week. 2 – not drinking ddp after noon is messing with your mind. Even heroin addicts get a little medication to help out. Wean more slowly. 3 – It is this FREAKIN’ heat! You get brain damage at 108*, you know it’s been hot enough for that! 4 – It’s time to do some work on your second house. That might help. I hate that bathroom faucet so much I just cringe everytime I look at it.

    haha – like how I made it about me?

    I had a really good reply for two days but I never wrote it down and now it is gone. I think I told you, though, right? And you remembered, right? ‘Cause I think I was spot on.

Under the Table and Dreaming

I don’t want to talk to you right now. I don’t want to talk to you because I don’t have anything nice to say, and I was taught to keep my mouth shut at times like these. I honestly believe that things will work themselves out, so why whine about something that we will put...

    I think some time with the flame thrower will help you feel better, Sweet Thang.

    Sorry your mom is nuts. At least you breaking the cycle? I know nothing helps at times like this …

    You can come hide in my guest room, she can’t find you there. There’s even a tv.

  • SarahNovember 12, 2009 - 10:16 pm

    So, I’m gonna assume that you’re not mad at me.

  • Masked MomNovember 13, 2009 - 7:15 pm

    Be mad all you need to–I hope it helps. Also hope it helps knowing that you are a stronger person for what you’ve come through.

  • RachelNovember 15, 2009 - 6:30 pm

    Yeah, you can’t really be mad at me either. Sorry she’s a looney. Love you.

Day 9 and I’m Feeling Dangerous

I’m taking an mental health day. I’m obviously in need, as I just about went postal in two separate places of business this morning. But I leave you with the little bastard that wakes me up every morning by scampering through the attic and chucking things at my window. Hopefully this is the photo we...

    PLEASE let the Sant kids (including the big one) come play kill the squirrel. They are evil little creatures that are not indigenous to the United States. Big rodents. Bigger in Spokane AND they threw stuff at my kids if they got too close to the trees.


    Drowning is supposed to be the best/most humane way to kill them. You trap them in a live trap and then stick the whole thing in like a kiddie pool (not mine) and they can’t hold their breath so they die fast.

    But the Sant boys are fond of fire and things that shoot.


    Love, Tif

    PS Too bad Matthew is sick, your mental health day could include us going out to lunch…

  • JeffNovember 9, 2009 - 4:32 pm

    I didn’t want to say anything, but I think I heard that talking smack about you this morning. Something about not having the “nuts” to do anything about it.

  • JessicaNovember 9, 2009 - 6:33 pm

    Screw humane…bring on the BIG GUNS.

    Though when Jackson noticed the picture, he said, “Aw, look Mama, it’s a cute little buddy.”

    He has no idea.

  • TifaniNovember 9, 2009 - 6:37 pm

    Not just humane – fast and efficient – but lacking the luster of pure fire power.

  • Masked MomNovember 9, 2009 - 9:56 pm

    I’m jealous–you and that little bugger play your cards right and you could have daily posts for the rest of the month!

  • ErikaNovember 9, 2009 - 10:22 pm

    MM, you want me to send him up your way? Say the word!

  • Masked MomNovember 10, 2009 - 8:01 am

    Couple years and two houses ago, Son-One got out of the shower and found one sitting on the clean towel he had laid out to dry off with. He didn’t immediately notice it and when he reached for the towel, it must’ve startled the squirrel who promptly peed all over the clean towel and then disappeared through a previously unnoticed tear in the window screen. That was enough close encounters of the bushy-tailed kind for us.

    If you’re sending him, he better be in multiple shrink-wrapped pieces. 😉

All About the Pictures

So I had this anniversary recently. Maybe you’ve heard? And it was incredible. Driving down to New Orleans in this Shooting a trash the dress session ending with this Wandering around Magazine street, shopping and snapping some of the best pictures of my life. Like this one Yeah, I have no idea who he is,...

    Those are incredible – yours AND Becky’s. I want to wall paper MY house with them and you don’t even live here.

  • JeffOctober 23, 2009 - 10:45 am

    I’m so glad you had a good time.

    I’m still waiting for my Bread Pudding!!

  • Masked MomOctober 23, 2009 - 3:10 pm

    I didn’t wait til my 10th to trash my dress–I dropped a stuffed shell on it at the reception (Hint: Never serve red sauce at a wedding.), which is just as well cuz I wouldn’t have fit in it at ten years anyway. I agree with Becky–kudos to you both for not only fitting in them but looking great. The pictures were amazing.

  • Becky TOctober 24, 2009 - 12:55 pm

    My, my, what good looking people we have here. Thanks for letting me help you trash your dress. 🙂 It was a ton of fun! And, thanks for your compliments–you are very kind! Looking forward to seeing you again!

  • AnonymousOctober 27, 2009 - 1:06 pm

    What an awesome idea! I’m so glad I stalked your blog today. I love, love, LOVE the pictures. Our 10 year is next year. You may have started a revolution! It will be hard for me to resist copying you. My dress is just collecting dust and I’m too cheap to get it cleaned and preserved in one of those dress boxes. How FUN!!!

Dear October,

I’ve tried to be patient with you. Really I have, but we are currently 8 days into your reign and I have yet to see any sign of you. I mean are you really trying to tell me five consecutive days of 90 plus degree weather is acceptable to you? I should hope not. I...

    I hope October listens. I’ve been hearing for MONTHS how fabulous it is, but really, it seems to have missed the boat, the train, or whatever mode of transportation it comes in.

  • Masked MomOctober 9, 2009 - 12:28 pm

    I think your October and my October should meet in the middle. It’s been rainy and colder than crap (November cold).
