Dear Nate

Dear Nate,First of all, you. crack. me. up. The nine voicemail messages you left me are beyond unbelievably hysterical.  If I weren’t such a hoarder of neatness I would have saved them all in my mailbox to share with other friends.  My favorite message of course was the one where you were begging me to forgive you.  I knew it was in the purest form of sincerity that you delivered your message. ;)  My second favorite message was the one that you said “New number. Same annoying Nate.” Nate the Great, you are a classic one-of-a-kind friend.  And just because I don’t want to give you a boring response.  Just because I know that for our friendship, it would be much more fulfilling to you if I do something different, something surprising and unexpected.  I am replying to your messages on my blog rather than calling you back.And the rest of the people – few as they are – that are reading my blog…. well, they have to endure the fact that they have no idea what this is about.  An inside joke p…

She’s getting so big


google addict

I am a junkie for google.  Wait.  Maybe I should rephrase that statement.Hi. My name is Tina. I’m a google addict.Want me to prove it?  I’ll try.I couldn’t think of anything to write on my blog (because I’m boring lately).  So, I googled “something to blog about”.  The first hit was a book called…duh… “something to blog about”. It wasn’t what I was looking for so I googled “blog topic ideas”.  And then I told myself “uh…Tina…you just googled your thoughts… are you a google addict?”  Then, I googled “google addict”.  Wait. Don’t stop reading. It’s worse than you think.  The first hit to that is this link.  Yep. 63 signs you’re addicted to google.  To my relief, I only have 11 of those 63 signs.The second hit was a quiz.  So, I took it.  It says "According to our experts, you are 75% addicted to google”.After those hits, there were various sites I visited that were blogs about google addicts.  I found myself asking these questions:1. What did I DO before google?2. What WOULD I DO w…

I was going to but now I’m not.

I thought about proclaiming myself the worst blogger ever and making a trophy out of all the junk on my desk.  But, then, I read another blog today.  It was their only update since June.  So, I lost the contest (hey! it was a contest to me even if it was created in my mind).Why haven’t I blogged lately?  Duh.  I started my own business. Remember?  I don’t know what I was thinking.  I thought that starting your own business and working from home would be super fun.  I didn’t realize I was going to have to actually WORK.  I thought people who did this sort of thing just got to sit on facebook and play fantasy football all day and get a cute home office and new computer…. and special order “inbox” and all the office supplies you could ever dream of.  But reality is not that. Reality is slight disorganization (okay, gross exaggeration with the word slight there) partnered with no free time. at. all.So, instead of crafting my worst blogger trophy this morning, I have a different list.  It’…
