Where The Hell Is Everyone?

All I want for Christmas, is to know where the hell everyone went. I feel like I haven't seen anyone here, in months.

Oh wait.

My fault.

I'm the one that's been gone. 

And actually, funny story, but it wasn't really my fault, and I've actually been here

You see, I hired a company back in August, to move this blog, hosted on Blogger, to a new site, hosted on WordPress. Blogger has been amazing to me, but at the end of the day, it's like renting an apartment. Google owns my site, and I'm just borrowing a tiny piece of it.

When I started this blog, I never, in my wildest dreams, could have imagined the community that has come to congregate here, to grow to the size it has. Therefore, I came to realize that I needed a bigger house to fit everyone. A house, that I own.

So like I said, I hired a company to help me pack up my belongings and move them to my new house, and... they sucked. Like a lot. Like not only were they awful, but they were downright thefty. (Is that even a word? Oh well.)

But thankfully my business partner is a snazzy attorney, and sadly for this thefty company, I am unrelenting when someone is trying to pull one over on me, and in the end I got my money back, and started over with a new company. Now, finally, my new site is ready.

So, here is what you need to know!! 

Did you see that? I was trying to make it rather commanding, because there are a few things you need to know.

#1 If you are subscribed to this blog either by email or an RSS feed, you will NOT be subscribed after Friday. You will need to resubscribe!

#2 Where do you resubscribe? On the new site!

#3 And Hello Eden! Where is this new site? Well, you can find it here (after Friday, this site will redirect to the new one). You can also find it at and

#4 Also, why do you want to visit this new site?

Because oh my gosh people, you have absolutely no idea the stuff that I have been waiting to discuss with you.

Is my new house built or are we still homeless?

Are the kids still in the hospital?

How the heck is that baby anyway?

Why do you keep flying to LA?

Did you really go on a date with someone, while you are still married!?

And what is going on with your ex!? (Oh you just wait, it's good)

Also, now, you can rent me. And Mr. Attorney Man. You can rent us both if you want.

Yes, I'm serious.

See ya on the new site, people, after Friday.  As always, I'm sure it's going to be a fun ride.

Or a train wreck. That's always a possibility too...

Shut. Up.

A few weeks ago I found myself standing in line at Panera, as I do every so often when Frisbee Boy's Mom (AKA my surrogate mom) invites me to lunch so we can chat. She's amazing, she really is. I've honestly never in my life, met anyone like her. She goes so far out of her way to help everyone, and it's just a quality you often see in today's busy world. When The Girl Child was in the hospital, she and her husband booked us a hotel room for the night. When The Girl Child got home, she showed up the very next day with cupcakes. That's what life is like with her, all of the time, because she is, as I said, amazing. 

I like her and she likes me, so it's usually a good time, but it's also weird.

I mean come on, remember the time her and I went to Goodwill and she convinced me to try on someone's bedroom shoes? Or that time we she and I went grocery shopping, and I got stuck in the freezer?

(Bonus points for anyone who can find that blog in the archives, I know it's around here somewhere!)

Take Notice

My daughter has been in the hospital for nearly a week now. Because of the move, my business trip, and now this, I've stayed in seven hotels, in the last three weeks.

I'm weary.

Last night my husband picked up my sons and took them back "home," leaving me at the Ronald McDonald House, with an empty stroller that he couldn't fit into his car.

My heart felt empty as I looked around at yet another unfamiliar place, full of unfamiliar people.

And This Is How I Accidentally Slept With A Naked Homeless Guy On Drugs

**If the photos appear fuzzy, viewing on your mobile device's desktop version clears them up**

If only we had known what was hiding under the lights, of The Ellison Suites Hotel, maybe none of this would have happened.


Have you ever had something happen in your life, that is just so far out of the "normal" category, that it doesn't even seem real?

I'm speechless, and that's really saying something, if you know me.

In fact when it was happening, I kept saying how this was going to be the best blog ever, but now that I'm trying to actually write about it... I've been staring at my computer for the past three days and the only words that keep coming to my mind are "What. The. F."

Since I don't even know where to start, I guess I'll start back at the beginning, when Mr. Attorney Man and I had to fly to LA for some business. I had a few meetings to attend that he didn't need to be at, so for the first few days, we spent much of our time apart. But, because his (super fun) wife had traveled with him, we decided to check out of the swanky hotel I had stayed at for my meetings, and stay an extra day in a hotel that Mr. Attorney Man had found, by the beach.

A hotel that I looked up online, and promptly decided I wasn't staying in. 

"Um, this place looks scary" I hinted.

Who We Were All Meant To Be

Recently, The Littlest underwent a several hour long surgery, and then an extended stay in the Intensive Care Unit.

Although upon his birth it was believed that he had not inherited the genetic disorder that my family carries, it has now become relatively obvious that our initial reassurances were wrong.

Tonight, I was feeling especially worn out. There's a grieving process you go through, when you realize that the life you had planned for your child, might not be the one that they are going to lead.

"Things That Make You Ask Why?" 13th Edition

On this blog, we discuss some really difficult things, that can make you question the way the world works. But we aren't here for that today. Nope, today is all about the strange shit that seems to serve zero purpose at all.

The shit that just makes you ask "why?"


Why hasn't this house been rented yet!? I saw the listing on a Facebook ad, and I simply can't understand why someone hasn't snatched it up yet.

Do you think it's because the bathroom is tiny? I mean at least it gets great light, and views, of the street... from the toilet...

I simply have no idea why it's still for rent.

None at all.
