Pizza Delivery

May 6, 2014

So as you probably knew, it’s been a little crazy around here. While I pick up the pieces, dig myself out of what seems like a never-ending virtual pile of (e)mail, get myself caught up with non-LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER business, and try to decide how much of the massive amount of leftover pizza I […]

Giving St. Louis Another Chance

April 24, 2014

I used to have extended family in the St. Louis area and when I was a kid we made the drive to visit them every now and then, but one trip to The Lou has stood out in my mind for almost forty years. That one particular trip was supposed to be fun: my family […]

It Contains Peanuts, So It Must Be Trail Mix

April 20, 2014

I’m coming off of a weekend bender, and all of my Facebook friends watched it all unfold. I’m talking about my addiction to my mother-in-law’s trail mix. Or, I should say, “trail mix”. In quotes. I wrote about said “trail mix” before, about five years ago. That’s how much it impacts my life: it warrants […]

Kiss, Cher, and Rock and Roll

April 16, 2014

Buckle up for this one. It’s going to be a crazy, zig-zaggy ride. When I heard the news a couple of weeks ago that Kiss was finally going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I was thrilled, but surprised that they weren’t already in there. Sidenote: You might be surprised […]

Hearing The Signal Loud And Clear

April 8, 2014

I have spent the last two and half weeks coasting through my days with only about half of my hearing. (Nothing to see here, just a little excess wax buildup that apparently couldn’t be taken care of with over-the-counter fixes. IT HAPPENS TO LOTS OF PEOPLE. Pretend I didn’t feel the need to explain it […]

A Different Kind Of Motherhood

April 3, 2014

Being in the thick of LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER season, I tend to get a little crazed because there is just so much to do. Okay, that’s my life. It really does get a little more intense this time of year, though. Tracey and I don’t just spend our time thinking about (and taking action […]

Beautiful and Enchanted

April 1, 2014

One of the things I loved most about this house when we bought it in December 2000 was the screened-in back porch.
