On the move.


Did you know how reasonably priced movers are?  Who knew?  I was spending more than that on guilt-induced, ‘I’m so sorry I’m making you spend your Sat. this way’ pizza and beer.

If only I’d discovered this in time to book some for tomorrow’s move.

Snog and Blog


We listed them as our “potentially scary to a partner” thing, me my blog, he his child.  Today he mentioned that despite my warnings about my blog challanging boundary issues, I had yet to mention him.

I explained that when you have a blog audience, you introduce someone to them as a friend, or as a boyfriend, and not at all until you know which.  You know, sort of like your child.

‘Cept I think I just broke my rule.  Hopefully y’all are old enough to understand.

I just got an invitation …


… to my father’s second wedding in a year.   Who ever she is, she must have noticed my conspicuous absence in his life.


What I don’t understand is why he even mentions me to women.  If he left me out of his life story, we’d both be better off.  He wouldn’t have to explain why I don’t have anything to do with him, and I wouldn’t have to search for a box to check under “attending” that says, “ARE YOU KIDDING ME?”

But once again I find that the lack of a response says everything I have to say.

P.S. Did I mention she’s coming to visit?



Lola – I just got an email from a republican organization that teaches about taxes, budgets, proposal, civil law, ect (my in-laws are members). The grammar is so horrible, I want to edit and send it back!

Valancy Jane – DO IT.
CC your in-laws.

Lola – I am doing it!!

Valancy Jane – I have never been more proud of you.
