Facepalm…

“Pro-life, these people aren’t pro-life, they’re killing doctors, what kind of pro-life is that? What, they’ll do everything they can do save a fetus, but if it grows up to be a doctor they just might have to kill it?” -George Carlin Late-Term Abortion Doctor Killed While Attending Church. I tried to find decent words…

Girls…

I have very, few, girlfriends. I sat up in bed a few moments ago and was wondering- in all the gatherings at my home- it’s always Mindy and I- and whatever mix of my guy friends that can make it. I wondered if it was a secret everyone but me knew- maybe… I was born…

On the day you were born…

There’s a book called, “On the Day You Were Born.” It’s always been one of my favorite ‘goodnight’ books to read aloud to Aves- not only for the bright pictures, but because I always find myself passionately dictating the words to her, and I can see wonder and amazement in little, preschooler, eyes. We finished…

So. Over. Pink.

Retailers of America that desperately want my money,  I think you need to desperately understand something. Something, that in fact- might change the way you view over half of the world’s population. Most women, despise Pink. We’ve been fed a ‘Mary Kay’ world since before we were born. Pink was predestined for us, just like…

To those that Minneapolis will miss…

I’m terrible at goodbyes. When the time comes for a goodbye with someone I deeply care about? I usually rush it; a hurried hug, or a quick squeeze of the hand. I haven’t yet learned that all things have their course, and in that course- it’s meaning. A good friend is moving south. I see…

Poopy Rocketships.

I almost forgot to post this gem. Mindy kidnapped me for a movie night last night and in my drugged up glory, we were walking to the theater and I got a call from my dad’s cell. I answered and he said- “Kate, I have the funniest story to tell you. Ava went on the…

Who do you work for, CDC?

A great picture about our obsession with Swine Flu- Here.     I love a good company to company agreement. I love great P.R. In fact? If I wake up in the morning and if don’t hear a brilliantly-twisted news story or advertisement? I just can’t function. (It’s like crack/coffee to me.) Trouble in corporate america? Large pyramid scam? ….cute puppies? Thank you god for…

Living just to find emotion…

Here it is, another moment where I’ve found my words. There’s a rising warmth in my chest and a silent declaration of victory that no one but me, will hear. It happens as I sit patiently in a room entirely too small except for the sole purpose of making people tense and uncomfortable. Hardly room to fidget; the…

There are no words…

 The saddest story you will ever read.   I think this is probably the most, profoundly-depressing thing I have ever come across. I pondered driving 30 miles south to my mothers to hug my daughter, (she’s visiting ‘Palma and Papa.’) There’s something about reading another child’s utter demise that makes me need my daughter and…
