How to take 20 years off your appearance.

by Lynn on October 7, 2015

Last week, I promised to blog about something “helpful.”
To boost my brain, I visited my daughter at college,
…whom I had when I was seven.

Anyhow, I kept looking for inspiration.
You know, a sign.

I bet you see these type of signs on every college campus.

IMG_3252

Yep, college signs were everywhere.

IMG_3271

Despite these signs, I was inspired.
So, I sat in the library and did some light reading.

IMG_3262

I thought I fit right in.
Heck, I looked exactly like a twenty year-old.
And then it hit me – reading Nietzsche takes 20 years off your appearance!
This is extremely helpful information that I can share with my friends!!!!!!!!!

The campus police were very nice when they escorted me out of the library.
I told them I was a “college senior,” but they insisted I was a “senior citizen.”

And then I wept.
And then I wrote a lengthy letter of apology.
To my daughter. And to the librarian.
And to Nietzsche.

Best things, EVER!

by Lynn on September 30, 2015

It’s about time we do a “Best Ever” post, right?
Here is something for the Art Historians in the audience:

After I saw the mer-horse-maid, I was inspired.
I ran home and made mashed cheese and cauliflower.
Which ended up being more awesome than the horse statue.

My husband was so grateful for the fabulous meal,
he gave me a fortune cookie.
‘Cuz I love cookies.

My husband sleeps in the garden.

by Lynn on September 23, 2015

I have a terrible problem.

0001-57395200

I don’t think it’s weird to fantasize about a statue.
I mean, Michelangelo’s David is downright handsome.

0001-57393920

Okay. Maybe this whole statue thing is weird, so I’m gonna switch topics.
For the first time EVER, I’m going to show you a picture of my husband:

He’s the strong, silent type.
Just the way I like ’em.

Why my kids shouldn’t read my blog

by Lynn on September 16, 2015

If you are my child,
STOP reading my blog.
Because today I’m talking about
my addiction to porn.

0001-57388655

Yes.

I. Love. Porn.

There. I said it. Don’t judge.

0001-57389640

And you love porn, too.

Especially food porn.

0001-57387690

And if I say “porn” enough in this post,

I’m going to get some really interesting spam.

Which will entertain me all afternoon when I should be writing.

First day of school…

by Lynn on September 9, 2015

My high school kid started school today.

0001-57398733

In honor of this monumental occasion,
I ate a ton of candy last night.

0001-57396529

I can’t understand why my kid was so embarrassed
when I dropped her off at school.

Lying to myself

by Lynn on September 2, 2015

“The second time will be easier.”
I kept repeating this lie.
Over and over.

IMG_2787

But whenever I saw the college gear accumulating in the dining room,
I felt a sharp pang in my midsection.

The pain worsened when I realized that some of the school supplies
were the same ones we used to buy when she was in first grade.

IMG_2783

There were also dorm necessities,
like fans and rugs and late-night snacks.
Stuff kids need when they move away from home.

IMG_2784

Change can be painful and scary,
but good things will come from it.

Yet right now, we kind of feel like the dog does
whenever someone pulls out of the driveway and leaves her.

IMG_2804

We’re forlorn.
We miss our college kid.
And we’re barking at the neighbors.

Closets are for eating.

by Lynn on August 12, 2015

A cookie told me that I needed a break.

IMG_3149

I don’t know about you, but I ALWAYS obey cookies.
So, I grabbed the healthiest item I could find from the fridge…

IMG_3129

…and I searched for the one spot no one would find me…

IMG_3189

…and I ate the whole chocolate pie and took a nap.
I feel MUCH better now. And not guilty at all.

The last thing Mitchell Blake needs is another hot-shot consultant to “save” his glassblowing factory,
but this one is different. She is hiding something. If he can unearth Jaye’s secrets,
he might have good reason to fire her…or keep her forever.

Where do I put the dead bodies?

by Lynn on July 29, 2015

I’ve got murder on my mind…
but I don’t know how to kill my victim.

IMG_3163

My victim is a jerk.
She takes over EVERYTHING.
AND she loves to choke things to death.

IMG_3166

Not only has she filled the flower bed,
she’s starting to creep into the back yard.
Certain members of my family are looking the other way…

IMG_3167

…but I know this is a problem I’ve got to face.
Pretty soon, the ivy is going to grab hold of one of us.
So if I don’t appear some Wednesday, you know who to blame.

IMG_3165
How do I kill her?
I’m desperate.
Please advise.

I’m not relaxed.

by Lynn on July 22, 2015

I caved in and bought an “adult” coloring book.
Because why cook dinner when I can color, instead?

IMG_3053

The pages looked promising.
Ah, the works of art I’d create while I forgot all my troubles!
I dreamed of my new art career, eagerly opened my new box of crayons, and…

IMG_3054

Wait. What?

IMG_3055

The tips were broken!
ALL the tips were broken off!!!!
Anger zipped through me. I paid good $$ for this stuff!
I screamed and yelled and ripped my coloring book and cried…

…and felt like a five year-old again.
Alas, here is the fountain of youth!!! Yippee!!
