I’m scared to go back to work tomorrow.

It’s an odd feeling knowing that someone tried to blow me up last night. I hadn’t been to the tree lighting since I was a little, little kid, but Ryan wanted to go (now that Hanna’s here, he’s very excited about doing holiday stuff together), so, there we were. I didn’t know anything about it [...]
Things that I am thankful for: 1. Babies. All of them, everywhere, but especially little Miss Susquehanna. 2.

Who do I call to complain to when the crappy people from the apartment building next door decide to dump their old sofa in front of my house? It’s bad enough that they and their guests are always parking right in front of my house, taking up two parking spaces because they don’t know how [...]
