I think it’s cute that Omahans get the benefit of calling Omaha, HOME-aha. The name just works. Definitely doesn’t flow the same with KansasHOME City, nor any other version of the words “Kansas City” combined with the word “Home”. But somehow, someway, Kansas City is home.. and so is Omaha/HOME-aha. It did not start thatContinue reading “HOME-aha”

Habit is a bitch, I’m going to be honest. How much of a bummer is it that symptoms of anxiety, symptoms of OCD, symptoms of depression, boil down to a bunch of shitty, out of control and thoughtless… habits? (plus other stuff – but that’s not the point of this blog 😉). Maybe it’s justContinue reading “HABIT(ches).”
One dog, two dog; blue fish, blue fish (a bad Dr. Seuss rip off):
One time, Matt abandoned me. FOUR WHOLE DAYS. Just me, like a free-range chicken, with 96 hours wide open and not a plan in sight. Technically, he abandoned me AND the dogs, but they seemed way less hurt by the abandonment and carried on as life as normal so.. they don’t count as victims ofContinue reading “One dog, two dog; blue fish, blue fish (a bad Dr. Seuss rip off):”
Trying something new: Meet Rachel!
Hi, hi, hello! How are you this beautiful Monday?! It’s 93° in Omaha and no one, and I do mean quite literally, NO ONE, is upset about it. What a great way to start the week! Otherwise.. not a lot new here. I generally pay it forward in the McDonald’s line on Monday, but today,Continue reading “Trying something new: Meet Rachel!”
Don’t cry over spilt Mountain Dew.
I’m pretty sure that’s how the quote goes, or at least, it’s close enough for me. Who likes milk these days anyways? The title hits close to home. I’ve had a WEEK at work, despite taking a vacation day Monday and it only being Wednesday. 🙈🤣 it’s one of those “there’s 100 ways this issueContinue reading “Don’t cry over spilt Mountain Dew.”
A series of seemingly unrelated events that almost created a catastrophe: a story of sorts.
You. All. BUCKLE UP. I have an “Ashley-only” type of story to share with you, the kind that seems unbelievable, that involves like 900 seemingly unrelated parts, but still.. somehow ends up related, disturbing, and sort of hilarious. I’m actually super proud of this particular story, because while it’s absolutely Ashley-esque, Matt is the protagonistContinue reading “A series of seemingly unrelated events that almost created a catastrophe: a story of sorts.”
To be or not to be.. present
Hello, hi, so sorry for your (favorite) bloggerina’s minor disappearance. LOL @ all of you that thought I finally gave up and realized that I suck at blogging or those of you that didn’t realize I was gone at all – surprise, I’M BACK BABY! I’d like to say I’ve been up to something reallyContinue reading “To be or not to be.. present”
Shut your damn mouth 🤐
One of the hardest parts of adulthood, and honestly, even just growing up, has been controlling this mouth of mine. It runs faster than my brain and apparently enjoys my foot in it. It gets me in trouble, again and again and again. I remember one time, as a small-ish child, I was taunting myContinue reading “Shut your damn mouth 🤐”
Getting to know your bloggerina (that’s ME!)
First and foremost… I hope bloggerina isn’t a word, because if it isn’t, right here, right now, I’m patenting it, trademarking it, copyrighting it. IT’S MINE. It’s the perfect title for someone who desperately wants to be rhythmically inclined (or just not utterly inept), that would love to move her body in graceful, flowing motions,Continue reading “Getting to know your bloggerina (that’s ME!)”
A Sunday State of Mind
I’m guilty of the “Sunday Scaries”- you know, the inevitable feeling of doom and gloom, the distress, and just plain stress, related to an upcoming week, and an overall sense of dread for Monday. It normally involves a bunch of ruminating on why weekends are so short and lamenting that the weekend is a briefContinue reading “A Sunday State of Mind”
