I’m a champion!

If champions rise, then I’m gonna consider myself a champion, having to rise above the pain every single minute of every single day. And to everyone who rises despite the pain, this is for you!


Biles told ABC News on Wednesday, “It doesn’t even matter if I don’t win a self-gold, after every meet I have pizza. Pepperoni pizza.”

Congratulations Simone Biles! You make gymnasts, women, Americans, and black people proud!

What do I see? Take a walk with me…

Shall we start with some cloud therapy?

Do you think birds get lonely?


Angry cloud monster or Donald Trump?


I wish I was a plane, fully fueled and flying free.

I’m sad and tired, tired and sad. (I blame Donald Trump.)

Like a flower without petals.

Like a discarded plastic toy (with a bug on her nose).

Like the last rose of summer.


Like a cat (with an attitude) who used to be friendly…

But would now prefer to hide.

Look, it’s a sign! Does anyone speak stone(d) language?


I posed for this sign.

At least I made another new friend.

Isn’t he cute? Now that gay people can marry, maybe I should marry this dude.

Looks like I’ve got competition. Maybe I should die my hair red.

If (when) my new husband makes me mad, I can just make a purse out of him. That’s called being environmentally conscious.

I used my favorite cinnamon roll recipe to make pepperoni and Colby cheese kolaches. It was a lot of hard work and it took me forever to clean up afterwards. (I found flour on the ceiling.) But it was sooooooo worth it! They are the best thing I’ve ever made. So soft and yeasty. Better than sex, I swear. Sorry I don’t have a photo — you’ll just have to use your imagination. 🙂
