Another Epilogue: More Popular Than A Unicorn

Thank you, friends. It’s getting better each day. However, I’ve decided not to discuss the specifics online right now — mostly because the IRL backlash would suck. But your prayers and thoughts have meant so much to me.  Also, these pictures from Best of Fates.

I’m hoping to get back on the writing bandwagon by tomorrow.  Meanwhile, could you go visit me elsewhere?

It’s Hard To Be Cool and A Mom: Head to because it really is hard to be cool around baristas even without the my mom status. Also, I haven’t been funny in days so go there to laugh. Hurry!

You Are Enough Canvas
It's like I'm looking at you, friend. Or my cat.

Create An Inspirational Canvas! Or An Ugly One!:  Remember when I wrote about being enough on Late Enough? Well, it was on my mind so much that I made a canvas for it. And my husband turned to me yesterday and said: I’m so glad we have that reminder.

Anyway, Easy Print Canvas is letting me giveaway an 8×10 canvas to you of either your favorite photo or you can create your own inspirational picture. You can even steal mine! Head over to This Blogger Makes Fun of Stuff and leave a comment.

Thank you for everything. I’m still sad and weird, but I’m pretty sure only weird is here to stay. xoxo

She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Frick. Had I known my unicorn would be exposed for all to see I would have gone back in time and learned how to draw on a computer.

    Clearly, a childhood filled with Cool Pix failed me.

    (p.s. I’m still sending love, only this time it’ll be more emotional and less Paint-y.)

  2. Yep. My thoughts exactly. In college “Dancing Chara” would make appearances and she was SO FUN! Then eventually I became “Flight Attendant Chara” who was even better because she had no tests to study for and absolutely no responsibilities and not enough bills yet. Then I became “Teacher Chara” to which my then boyfriend now husband said, “is this how you’re going to be from now on? It’s fine if you are, I just need to know.” I had met paperwork, red tape, and many lives that I felt totally responsible for – even more than their parents, trust me, you didn’t meet them. Now I’m “Mom” and I’d like to think I’m actually more fun than the teacher me but I truthfully I’m not as much as flight attendant me. But it is nice not having to tattle on grown men and just for kicks we do the crash demo.

  3. What an awesome idea. I entered. As many times as I could. And I’m gonna keep tweeting and facebooking until I win! I’ve already got my canvas planned. :0)

    Also—facebooking. Is it a verb? Yay or nay?
