Welcome to it!

 Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

Welcome to my new blog.  I have finished my year of living simpler and though I continue to do so, I am ready for a new subject. 

I used to be hilarious.  I know, I'm pretty funny now, but before kids, family, becoming a home-owning, full-time-working mother, master's degree having, returned Peace Corps volunteer....bonafide grown-up...I was a lot more hilarious.  Weird, funny, strange things happened to me EVERY DAY! 

Now...they still do.  They do! But lost in the shuffle of raising kids and working hard and fostering a relationship with my partner, I have forgotten to notice them.

So that's what this blog is about.  Funny stuff happening to me (and sometimes the people around me) every day...  and I'm going to notice it. And write about it.

Oh and the quote above?

It's on a sticker that is on my guitar case--can't remember where I bought it. But I love this quote.  Not because I think we ARE all going to hell in a hand basket.  I have no idea where we're going. But I love the silliness of it.  And I just picture someone waking up inside a big hand basket, just shocked and confused, off to hell in a hand basket. 

I hope you will join me in this new blog.  And enjoy!!!


  1. We were out one day at the Brookfield Square and totally bought that sticker at Hot Topic! For some reason that sticker sticks with me (HA!) and I think of it and laugh whenever I feel as though I am helplessly being propelled forward as if I had been placed in said hand basket.
