David is a ramblin’ man


Yeah, so, David is going on a work trip on Sunday (his birthday!), and he won’t be back until Wednesday. That means it’s just me, the Spawn and Homer for four days.

Gone are the days when David traveling for work meant I was going to eat things David doesn’t like, drink a bottle of wine, order On Demand movies every night, catch my matches for free on and excessively tweet. Instead I will be hoping the boy stays asleep long enough for me to take a shower … before I eat things David doesn’t like, drink half a bottle of wine (I can’t be wasted and take care of the baby, folks — I’m a mom now), order On Demand movies and excessively tweet. I don’t check my matches for free anymore. It’s too weird with a new baby and all.

I’m sure we’re going to be perfectly fine, but it does make me a little nervous to think I’ll be without backup. Calvin is a total daddy’s boy. David is the apple of his eye. He thinks he’s the cat’s pajamas, the bee’s knees. Hopefully, the little guy behaves himself. If he doesn’t behave, I get to say the phrase that scared the shit out of me when I was a kid: “Wait until your father gets home.”

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. yes I am guilty of saying that alot when you, Michelle and Eric were little. I liked the wooden spoon also, used to wave that around to make me look tuff! boy times have changed. I wouldn’t do that to my grand-children, i guess I have become a big softy. But i must say my children grew up to be good people in spite of all my mistakes…..Mom

  2. Are you teaching Calvin to refer to his dad as “The Man”? because I think you should. 🙂

  3. catch my matches for free on
