I’m deleting an email from Pep Boys. How the f*ck did I get on their email list? I don’t even go there. I don’t “do” cars. I drive them, but I leave the repairs to my motorhead husband. When he starts talking about anything beyond horsepower (which also means nothing to me, but don’t tell … Continue reading How I Spent the First Day of School

Meanwhile, Back in My Uterus
I’ve been trying to write something worthwhile for days. I’ve been caught up in circles… confusion is nothing new. Since Pi died, we’ve… I’ve… been wandering aimlessly around trying to find motivation to do anything. I managed to clean most of the main house earlier this week…. Vacuuming and washing floors, dusting off surfaces, putting … Continue reading Meanwhile, Back in My Uterus
The day after I first published this post, Pi took her last car ride. It is with a terribly aching heart that I announce her passing. The first time I came to this house, Todd brought me here. He had wanted me to see the work he had done, his beautiful handmade kitchen cabinets, and … Continue reading Postscript
Two Poodles & a Housecat
Oftentimes, I come up with titles for posts before a post even exists. I jot them down, somewhere, and hope not to lose them.

Copyright TaraKA & the Tara Chronicles, 2016 Part 3 of 3. Part 1 and Part 2, if you wish. After that 24-mile ride, we took showers and ventured out again, this time by bus. We resumed our pint glass mission, and ended up stopping at Ocean City Brewery (which we swore we wouldn’t do since there’s one about a … Continue reading Sunrise, Sunset
Vacation With My Man. And Why I Can’t Sit Down.
Part 2 of 3. First post is here. Recapping our first day After my bathroom rescue, we decided that our first activity would be a bike ride. I noticed droves of vacationers coming in off the beach and the sky to the west looked a bit, um, shall we say…gray? I mentioned it to Todd, who … Continue reading Vacation With My Man. And Why I Can’t Sit Down.
On the Road Again – Destination: OCMD
Copyright TaraKA & the Tara Chronicles, 2016 Co-pilot's Log: Destination - Ocean City, Maryland 10 a.m. Finally on the road. There were fleeting worries that little bro wasn’t going to show up to dog/house sit, but in the end Todd wasn’t waiting on him – he was waiting on his co-pilot, who is terrible … Continue reading On the Road Again – Destination: OCMD
