My birthday is in less than two months and, yes, I’m one of “those people” who are obnoxious and narcissistic enough to remind friends and family months, weeks, days, and hours before the big day. Hate me if you want, … Continue reading
Last weekend, the boyfriend and I took advantage of the good weather and Labor Day holiday by going camping. Until 2010, the only time I’d gone real camping was when I was barely a year old. (I’m not counting when … Continue reading
This weekend is Labor Day weekend here in the USA. I honestly haven’t a clue about why this holiday exists and what we’re supposed to actually do for it, other than get upset that summer is almost officially over. Boo. … Continue reading
