The Decapitator

Conversation this morning with a doctor who is not normally my primary care physician but was available on such short notice: Dr.: Wait, you have two dogs? Me: Yes, a mutt and a Miniature Australian Shepherd. Dr.: Really? Because I’ve been begging my husband for an Australian Shepherd for years. Me: He doesn’t want one? [...]

Sending myself an expense report

I am going to be traveling all this week for business, so posting for the next several days will be fairly light. I’ll try to post a few pictures and Twitters from the three cities I’m visiting while I’m gone, although now that it is summer they will all probably read: IT IS NOT SNOWING [...]

Dangly pink earrings

These earrings are about three years old, but I broke them out last night to wear to a business dinner. I bought them at a local boutique called Koo De Ker, and for the rest of the week I’ll be featuring some wardrobe items that I found there to wear to several business engagements this [...]

Early evening rumble

Jon took this photo while hiking last week with the dogs, and then two days later I had to take Coco to the vet to have a foxtail removed from her right ear. That is a story that will appear on the front page of this website very soon. Once I regain the hearing I [...]

Heart breaking violently

Alice and her husband Scott and son Henry were visiting Salt Lake City last week and spent a leisurely Saturday night helping us drink our wine. Leta developed a huge crush on Henry, and he was chivalrous enough to oblige her and spent several hours entertaining her. For about an hour they both chased each [...]

And the nominee for best interpretation of a four-year-old is…

Last night after tucking Leta into bed I turned off her light, sat down beside her on the edge of her mattress and told her I was only going to tell her one story. She pleaded with me to tell her a princess story, and I wanted to go, seriously? Do you know how many [...]

Decorative doormat

I’ve had the hardest time finding sturdy, quality doormats that are well designed and don’t cost a fortune. We’re particularly hard on our doormats because of the horrible Utah winters and going back and forth with our snow-covered boots, so we usually have to replace them every other season. I found this cute one at [...]


Am I the only one who used to watch Grease 2 with Michelle Pfeiffer over and over again during the summer months between grades of school? That movie had some of the best musical numbers, including one about the birds and bees and it was terribly provocative, especially for an impressionable Mormon youth such as [...]

On being more friendly to the environment

Last week the price of gas forced us to switch cars, and now instead of driving around in our mammoth SUV we’re folding our bodies to fit inside the two-door 2000 Honda Civic that has been parked for months inside our garage. It is a car I could fit in my front pocket. We tried [...]
