I haven’t been around much.

You see, a while back I got this email that was all “HI CASEY WANT A BLOGGING JOB?” and I was all “WHOASA YES I LIKE BLOGGING JOBS!” And then I got an email (okay like a hundred back and forth) that said “HI WE NEED 15 POSTS FROM YOU BY THE TIME WE LAUNCH THIS BAD BOY ON JUNE 2nd.” and I was all “WHAT? OKAY! GARFUBBLELEH…”

So I wrote fifteen posts, the site launched and I became a big rich blogging celebrity the end.

HA! Just kidding. More like I became a horribly confuzzled blogger who forgot to shower for a few days, complete with bags under her eyes and Oreo crumbs down her cleavage. Yeah, that sounds more accurate.

So anyway, unless you have a kid under six and you live in the Indianapolis area you could care less what I’m writing about over at my new gig. HOWEVER, if you have a kid under six and you live in the Indianapolis area I AM YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND.

Being Savvy:Indianapolis

You see, I now write for Savvy Source, a resource for parents on all sorts of stuff. (I’m sure their PR just loves that I said their site is about “stuff”) BUT! Even if you don’t live in Indianapolis there’s a darn good chance that your city has its very own Savvy Source writer. (There’s about thirty other writers that I know of and more on the way.) We’re all about finding the best stuff to do with your kids in your own hometown.


So that’s where I’ve been. Sorry. Busy busy busy. Plus all that time apparently NOT spent putting sunscreen on vital areas of my body.

Oh hai? Sunbernz? Hayt u.

Gah. So you should have me back now little blog. Thanks for waiting for me.


  1. Ouch that burn…and oh that shirt/dress looks oh so pretty. Going to check out your Savvy posting.

  2. You are getting around, lady! And I mean that in the best possible way! Ouchie ouch ouch that sunburn looks painful (and hilarious.)

  6. Oh that is so exciting! I would love a blogging job. Only I don’t have a kid under 6. Or any kid at all. Or live in America. Or have a fancy blog layout. Or am self-hosted. Or anything. But I’ll revel in your successes.

  17. a blogging job. i think i would freak. honestly when i feel like i should post something because it has been so long that is when i never have a thing to say. if someone came and told me that they needed a certain number of posts by a certain day they would all be terrible. about cleaning up cat vomit or how one of my kids likes to sort the can of mixed nuts so it is no longer mixed or how i had to clean out my fridge today. nothing…i got nothing!

    Congrats on your new opportunity! Thats fantastic! I’m not a mom yet but I’m sure I can store those ideas for future! (oh and we didn’t do the sandbox for the twins- their toys were much better received!)

    and gah on that sunburn! Tea Tree oil does wonders though! (if you can find it- I only found it on vacation)

  19. Okay. Totally impressed.

    Also Jealous, your writing seems just as good on short notice and in bulk, as at home on vicodin, snorting out boogers. And that’s saying something.

    I’m making my little bags like crazy and my family hasn’t seen me for 5 days…they don’t really like it.

  33. Ok, I know this is a little weird and maybe stalkerish, but I’ve missed you so much that I dreamed last night that you and the moosh were on the run from a bad guy. You hid in my house and when the bad guy came looking for you I coshed him on the head with a toaster.
