about me

My photo
Denver, Colorado, United States
i'm 33. i live with my husband, baby daughter 2 dogs and 1 kitty. i'm a chemical engineer with an MBA and work in technical sales. i tend to bite off more than i *think* i can chew and end up with a full bulging mouth for awhile before i can finally swallow. i thrive in chaos, but strive for order.


lost in translation

conversation between me and my (british) boyfriend:

he was in the bedroom and i was in the living room.

si:"sweetie, do you know where my khakis are?"
me: "check the closet, i just did laundry"
si: "what? why are they in the closet?"
me: " i always put them in the closet, that's where they go!"
si (coming into the living room, picking up his car keys off the counter): "here they are on the counter"
me: "huh? your khakis are in the closet."
si: "i was looking for my CAR KEYS, not khakis you silly poppet"



  1. Hi, K! Our mutual friend, Heather, in Jonesboro, AR told me about your new blog. It's great already. (And I hear the British BF is very hot, so you've got to post some pics.) Keep up the good work!


    I love British guys, but that always, always happens. I dated a British guy for a few months (much more casually then you are) and had similar problems several times, especially while on the phone. If we wanted to actually communicate, we resorted to email. :)

  3. Oh, and what kind of engineer are you? What do you do?
