I’ve been doing this for a minute as the kids say and thought gee whiz (no, not really), wouldn’t it be fun to take a stroll down memory lane? Just for funsies I’ll pull some favorites along with the blog stats winners.


[Imagine that with some Star Wars introduction music or something, it makes it much more dramatic.]

First Place:  the murky waters of open adoption

AKA – Here’s a peak example of how blogs really show you who you were – kinda insecure about my place in T’s life. Damn.

Second Place:  I am who I’m supposed to be.

AKA – I was clearly working through adoption issues when I started this blog. Thanks for hanging in.

For kicks and giggles:  my Jehovah’s Witness saga

AKA – Guess I need to find that line between looking vaguely savable and beyond redemption.


First Place:  Meet the mind behind the blog…

AKA – Who’s putting all this stuff out there on the internet for the world to see? What’s her deal, anyway?

This one got an unfair bump because new readers clicked over to get the inside scoop but stats are stats, man, and I can’t argue with that.

Second Place:  Well, I can’t say they didn’t warn me.

AKA – Disney World might be the most magical place on Earth but Epcot has a “ride” that made me want to puke up those $20 Churritos.

For kicks and giggles:  graphic tees – the statement piece of a generation

AKA – Do you seriously expect me to let my daughter leave the house with “who needs brains when you have these” splashed across her boobies?


First Place:  Well, I can’t say they didn’t warn me.

Dang! 2nd place in 2016, 1st in 2017 – we’ve got a lot of folks who like a good “I was traumatized at Disney” story.

Second Place:  middle aged metal mouth

AKA – Years of searing pain, food deprivation, jaw surgery, and orthodontist payments? Of course that’s a blog post!

For kicks and giggles:  what valentines would look like if I wrote for Hallmark

AKA – Real prose. For real people. Goes well with chips and salsa.


First Place:  Well, I can’t say they didn’t warn me.

Daaaaammnnn. Top two, three years in a row. If you haven’t read this one go check it out!

Second Place: when pretty pie charts flesh out the truth about race and ethnicity

AKA – Because stats make the facade go BOOM.

For kicks and giggles:  “You can’t run your house like a benevolent dictatorship.” Challenge accepted.

AKA – Love ya. Mean it. Next.
