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.


birthday wishes from my bro

so i know my baby brother reads my blog.

well, he's not really a baby anymore.. since he's 22, a foot taller than me, just graduated college, and has an adorable girlfriend. i am so proud!

anyhow, he sent me the best birthday card*!

it said...

on the front - "for your birthday, sis, let me give you some advice mom gave me..."

on the inside - "i sure as hell won't be using it!"

thanks for the laugh, fuzz!

*except for the cheap shot he wrote about how close I was to 30


  1. that's great! that's what brothers are for! my brothers often are sweet, but of course have to have that added little jab to make sure I know they still have brotherly jerk tendencies despite the sweetness.

  2. I want a little brother!

    I'm an only child. This may explain my addiction to my IIFs.

  3. Very cute!

    My little brother, thus far, has not sent me any similarly sentimental missives for my birthday, nor has he given me the dig (which is good, since I'm 8 years older than him, and he's JUST turned 20).

    Thanks for tagging me. Oy. For someone who enjoys creative writing, I was not NEARLY as clever as you. C'est la vie...
