I hate baths

It’s true. I do. I hate them. I love other girly, pampering things (fluffy robes, facials), but not baths. The idea of siting in a tub while reading a book or drinking wine makes my skin crawl. I used to like them when I was younger, but somewhere along the way I started to see them…

a little splurge does the body good

Chances are, if you are one of the bajillions of people who celebrate some kind of holiday in December, your wallet is feeling a little light. Even if you decide to forgo gifts, it seems like December is expensive no matter which way you slice it. And, for the many of us who are already…

Family Confessions

1. I have thrown out forks, spoons, Tupperware, and cups because I deemed them too dirty to clean. 2. I let the dog eat sticks and leaves and whatever else on the couch because seeing him making a mess makes me happy. And, because Mr. T is a germaphobe, he’ll probably be cleaning it up…

our ever changing grocery cart

Sometimes, I think the harmony of a house lives and dies with groceries. Forget that one essential item, and hear the bitching about it all week. Get something special, and be rewarded. At least, this is how things go in our house. I have heard tales of households where shoppers get basically the same thing…

soapbox

a soapbox moment

*Hops up onto soapbox. Taps mic.* Is this thing on? Let’s all say it together: boxes are for holiday gifts, not people (unless you’re a serial killer, rapist, or some other kind of nasty that does, in fact, belong in a very literal box). I came across this article earlier today (Millennials Strike Back), and…

the feels

I was a raging nerd at school. I still am, I guess. I mean, aren’t all teachers? But I wasn’t a brown noser. When I gave a gift to a teacher it was because they had really moved me in some way. I was different after having them. Sometimes it was in a big way,…

broke much? gifting on the cheap

I know I am. Chances are, if you’re living with family, it’s not because you’re this guy. And being broke can feel especially crappy around the holidays. Yeah, it’s the season of getting really great gifts and eating really good food. But, in theory at least, it’s the season to GIVE really good gifts… if…

just another turkey day post

Well, I hope that you are all enjoying your post-turkey day food comas and – for those of you brave souls who are mingling in the retail world today, goodluck. I have been spending my Black Friday finalizing my classes for this semester and tallying up attendance records. I know, I know. It’s a glamorous…

best. quote. ever. on marriage.

Now, I’m no expert on marriage ( well, on anything, really…), but I’ve spent a lot of time over the course of my relationship with Mr. T trying to figure out what marriage is to us, what the words “wife” and “husband” mean to me, and what kind of relationship makes me feel the happiest.…
