Making a Murderino

stay sexy don't get murdered - Making a Murderino

When I was eleven, we took a family road trip to Los Angeles. I remember many things about that trip—my drawings of the ever-changing landscape out the car window, seeing my first drag queen on Hollywood Boulevard, my dad bribing me with polished rocks (which I collected at the time) to go through the Hall of Horrors at the wax museum, my weird guilt over not loving my stuffed animal from Disneyland as much as I loved my stuffed animal from Universal Studios—but perhaps the thing I remember most vividly is reading a magazine in our hotel room.

Warning: Stay away from my house!

Greetings, parents and caregivers of young children! Autumn in Oklahoma is finally here. Finally. Sadly, our favorite time of the year has been sullied by a near-constant barrage of colds. The twins are currently fighting off hacking and shnortling. My 8-year-old is fighting off post- and pre- (the grossest kind) nasal drips. Superwife is battling an epic wheeze and a record-setting intracranial clog. Yours truly? I've got a nasty headache, a bone-rattling sneeze, gloopy eyes, and a weird brain fog. Though, honestly, the brain fog is pretty normal for me.
