Why Did the Rooster Cross the Road?

I don't live in the country. Sometimes I'd like to. I'd plant my own garden and maybe get a fainting goat or a miniature pony. Definitely a tiny pig. For now, I live on a street with many other houses. We aren't close enough to pass sugar to each other through the windows, but there… Continue reading Why Did the Rooster Cross the Road?

Everyone grab a party hat! I'm back! Time to celebrate! I haven't posted in a few weeks. Has anyone missed me? No? Maybe just a little? My life has been pure craziness lately.

Not the Spa Type

I was planning to write about my quest for the best nail polish, which is funny because I never cared about polish until a few months ago. My nails have since been a different color every week.
