Meet The Momster
Meet Jan, better known as Mom. Mom, like most moms, totally rocks. She's one of the most complex, deeply complicated and genuinely sweet people I've ever met. (But don't tell her I said that. She's trying to maintain a certain... Read more >
The 7 Truths of San Diego
 As any native will tell you, San Diego is a small town. Sure, it's the sixth largest city in the States, but in reality it's nothing but a bitsy little burb playing dress-up. I say that with all the love... Read more >
Nyuck Nyuck, Nyuck, Nyuck
Today we received an email chain from Justin, also known as Brother of Varmint.  To say that The Varmint and Justin have a bad case of sibling rivalry is like saying you or I suffer from a bad case of... Read more >
The Girlie Chronicles: Revelation, Part I
Monday, The Varmint and I went to the fertility doctor. The funny thing is that we're still on the fence about Varmintlings. (To be honest, The Varmint's leaning a little further over the fence, Humpty Dumpty-style, than I. But he's... Read more >
The Girlie Chronicles: Revelation, Part II
(Note: As the title indicates, this is the second of a two-part story. To read things in order, scroll to the entry directly below this. We wouldn't want you to be confused...) Propelled by the paw at my back, I... Read more >
Pre-Holiday Holidays with My Other Family

I have to take a moment to thank the unsung hero of last night, my husband, The Varmint, who valiantly and without heed to his personal welfare cleaned up the bathroom after it was summarily destroyed by... someone. [ For... Read more >
The Varmint: His Origins & Evolution
It has come to my attention from a certain reliable, unnamed source, that a regular reader by the name of Greg has taken umbridge at The Varmint's nickname. He feels the nickname to be disparaging, and would prefer that I,... Read more >
All Hail the One Pump Chump
So, I've been getting hate mail from people because my old reliable daily entry has turned into more of a bi-weekly to when-I-feel-like-it thing. "Are you getting lazy?" they ask. "Are you busy?" Well, yes and yes. But there is... Read more >
Catatonia at Chez Varmint
The Varmint has been distracted and staring off into space, lately. Also, he's spending a large amount of time in our new sub-level outdoor hidey hole, working and organizing stuff, but also frequently escaping into the calming machine-gun fire of... Read more >
Welcome to the World
Meet Makenna Kay McGlathery. I never expected that The Varmint and I would fall so hard and go completely ga-ga in such a short time. How it All Went Down I'm hanging out with The Varmint last Wednesday night. That... Read more >
Meg, Mak, Tak + Tam
I can officially assert that not all houseguests stink after three days. Some you actually wish would move in. (Note: The Varmint actually just said, "Do you think if we emptied out our garage and built a studio, Megan would... Read more >
