Fun aunt Lisa

Welcome to the "Lisa the Fun Aunt" Rollercoaster Thrill Log Flume Magic Motion ride. Please keep your hands, arms and legs inside the ride at all times.

Please remain seated until the ride comes to a full and complete stop. Permenacer sentados, por favor.

I don't know about you, but I am exhausted.

In other news, my husband left for Florida without me.


My kids and I are joining him at the end of May after school gets out. Meanwhile, he sends photographs to psych me up for the impending move. Check out this gigantic Floridian bird:

I send texts back to him along the lines of "That's nice, honey. I'm going to change a poopy diaper and then drown my sorrows in a quart of salsa." (Who eats salsa when they're lonely? This girl.)

I'm SO ready for Florida.

Eulogy for a dear friend

 Let us all take a moment to reflect over the passing of a dear friend:
The copyright on its bottom said 1986. There were many good years when it graced the headboard of my oldests sister's water bed, until finally it made its way into my cupboard and my life. This Smurf mug brought me a lot of happiness. It met its demise surrounded by family and friends when it was accidentally pushed into the sink during a family potluck. You will be greatly missed, Smurf mug, particularly during Stephen's Hot Cocoa season.

That's all for today. I just couldn't throw it into the trash without saying a few words.

Oh yeah, I also wrote this. You should read it. Happy Easter, everyone!
