I cannot begin to tell you how absolutely, fantastically, overwhelmingly happy it makes me to walk into my bedroom when the sun is hitting the disco ball over the bed and covering the whole room with little bits of light. Everyone should have a space that makes them feel like this.

I stopped at Walgreen’s for tea lights and matches so I could use the salt candle holder (all of my votives were battery operated). They had the candles, but their only match option was a box of fifty (50) matchbooks. Fifty. All I need now is a brandy snifter larger than my head to keep them all in.

This is an awesome monkey. 

He’s been in my cubicle since my secret pal have him to me, but I think it’s time for Awesome Monkey to move on. And since he’s Awesome Monkey, he needs to go to someone equally awesome. 

So…help me find someone. Nominate an awesome person via my inbox or e-mail (my blog name at gmail) by Thursday and I’ll send the awesome monkey, (and why you think they’re so awesome) to the winning nominee. (If you prefer to nominate someone anonymously, please let me know.)

Sometime life throws you a curve ball and you do what you have to do to keep going but there’s not enough room for the person you are and the person you have to be right now so you pack away who you are so you can keep going and eventually you forget that you’re not being who you really are. And sometimes there are little flickers like déjà vu but not enough so you really notice then you run into someone and something about them hits you just right and you remember who you used to be but used to be isn’t really right because that you isn’t gone it’s just buried and then you go home and start opening drawers and finding bits of yourself that were packed away for so long, god, how did it become so long? In drawer after drawer after drawer it’s all right there, you’re all right there, and maybe you’re a bit dusty and a little worn on the edges but it’s all right there in front of you.

Cleaning out the freezer night means you can mix regular mac-and-cheese with the gluten-free chicken tenders you bought when your dad was temporarily off gluten and call it a meal.
