Dear Diary I wake up everyday feeling grateful that I live in Austin. I love my bed, my house, my local park, the lakes, the restaurants, music venues, how dog friendly the town is, the fitness community and of course the people! Austinites, natural born, or transplants are just...
Dear Diary I saw an article the other day that really incensed me. It said that the majority of men mess up chores on purpose so that they get out of having to do them again. WTF mate? That is so childish! I can't believe that most of went through a relatively similar upbringing...
Dear Diary I don't quite know what happened this past weekend but all of a sudden my house was filled up with puke. Not mine, but everyone else's. As you know I've got my Niece Denise staying with me and Jeff was over on Sunday as well. It seemed to start of as a normal day, I...
