Seven Quick Takes Vol. 2

Linking up with Jen! 1. Yesterday Dominic and I went to the grocery store for “big” grocery shopping. It was the first time I’d brought Dominic with me – it only took us seven months! Of course, he’s only now able to sit in the cart, and it would’ve been a futile effort to bring […]

Lazy rainy day

This morning I woke up with a strange itchy lump on my arm and my allergies still raging after a rage-fest which began with a romp in the grass yesterday. It was dark and rainy outside and I’m pretty sure Dominic was awake before 5:30…but I like to pretend I can’t hear him until 6:00. […]

Jungle Green Thumb

When I was younger, my favorite among the Crayola markers was the color Jungle Green. It still is, I suppose. I haven’t claimed a new favorite. Anyhow, a green thumb is certainly not one of my attributes. I tend to take very poor care of my plants. There’s not enough pressure, I decided, and as […]

The Grand Finale

Day Whatever: I do what I want. So I posted Day 9 the day after I was supposed to post it, then failed to post Day 10 later that day…then decided to give up altogether. A few days later I noticed that Day 10 was supposed to be my last day, but I had already […]


Day 8: A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all. As I’m thinking about this, I’m realizing how ill-equipped I feel to be giving advice about anything at all. At 24 years old, I’m not super experienced in many things. And I keep finding out (is it daily?) new things about which […]


Day 7: The thing(s) you’re most afraid of. If the point here is to talk about real, tangible things, I’d have to go with large spiders. If you want intangible things, I’d have to go with accidentally nicking an important blood vessel while shaving and bleeding to death in the shower. My guess is that […]

So…What Do You Do?

Day 6: If you couldn’t answer with your job, how would you answer the question, ‘what do you do’? If you consider taking care of Dominic my “job,” the answer here is, not much. If by “job”  you’re talking what’s-your-day-job, outside-the-home occupation, then I have more of an answer for you. What do I do? I’m […]


Day 5: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don’t have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member. You guysss. I am so uninspired to write about this topic. I don’t have blogger friends. […]

The Final Reality

Day 4: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it. I’m going to pretend that the prompt today is just about a quote that’s speaking to me lately, because the thought of trying to find THE quote from among all the quotes I love is overwhelming. I recently rediscovered that […]
