(Mostly) Trivial Things Of (Mostly) No Consequence

1. Tonight I took Alex to football practice in David’s Jeep. The top was off the Jeep because we are in a blessed stretch of pleasant, low-humidity weather (to God be the glory), and by the second stop light my hair looked a little something like this.


I just don’t have good Jeep hair, y’all. I didn’t when I was 14, and I don’t now, and next time I’m totally tying a big scarf around my head like Shirley MacLaine in Terms of Endearment, the end.

2. If my listening habits are any indication, I’m trying to set a record for how many times someone can play this song in a three-day period.

3. This popped up on our DVR the other night. And I mean this in all sincerity, children of the 80s and 90s: IS THERE ANYTHING BETTER IN THE HISTORY OF CINEMA?

I think not.

4. This book right here? Reading it over the course of this summer has been like a balm to me. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Exactly what my heart and soul needed.

5. Nine days, y’all. Nine days.

Thanks for being patient in the midst of our back-to-school / back-to-work / general run-of-the-mill crazy. Hope y’all are having a great week!

I Have Been So Very Absent

School, y’all.


It has been so fun. It has kicked my tail.


Today I’m trying to play catch-up in order of the things I’ve neglected the most (doesn’t that make me sound like a productivity superstar?). First priority is the newsletter. Second priority is the laundry. Third priority is the book. And then A. has some football stuff to do this afternoon, but that is certainly not an area of our lives that has been neglected. We are ALL CAUGHT UP on the football.

So. Newsletter will go out sometime this afternoon. Laundry is about to go in the wash. The book, fingers crossed, will get a little TLC later today.

Hope things are great in your neck of the woods. I’ve missed y’all! And all of our back-to-school adjustments should settle down pretty soon.

See y’all soon!

Hello, Kind People

Today was my first day back at work (just meetings), but I think it's safe to say that I probably won't be posting much over the next couple of weeks. Alex has started football practice, I'm making my peace with waking up to an alarm, and there's a … [Continue reading]

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 52

Earlier this week Melanie and I tried to record a podcast, and I don't really think it's hyperbole when I say it was the most boring 40 minutes in the history of podcasting. In the history of ALL PODCASTS EVER. So today, we tried to rebound, and … [Continue reading]

Nerdy Writing Info For Nerdy Writing Enthusiasts


For the last couple of years I've been trying to pay attention to how other people write. And I'm not talking about their writing style; I'm talking about their writing process. I had never really thought much about it until I started my second book, … [Continue reading]

Welcome To All The Excitement


I actually thought that there would be a podcast post up right about now, but Melanie and I attempted to record a podcast this past Saturday, and y'all, it was the most boring thing you ever did hear. And I know some of y'all are probably thinking, … [Continue reading]
