As I wonder what I would write about, I wondered no more as a notice popped up on my laptop that Toys R Us is going bankrupt. Now, if that didn’t impact thousands and thousands of jobs, I would be saying “thank the baby Jesus!” I’m not trying to be a Scrooge here, just trying… Continue reading Toys R Us Going Bankrupt
I know I have several readers from all over the world and I want to know, do your schools send kids out, selling for fund-raisers? Raise money for new playground equipment! Earn money for our music program! Send the band to the Rose Bowl! This is all well and good but my 8-year-old brought up… Continue reading School Fundraisers
Over the weekend we went to a soccer tournament and I had the pleasure of hanging out with these lovely ladies. Unfortunately the 3rd lovely lady wasn’t there yet but probably barreling down the highway at 95 mph. scared shitless as her husband drove. In this video I had made a copy of a co-worker’s… Continue reading Hot Mess Discusses Drugs
I was going to do a journal entry each day for this past weekend where we attended an out-of-town soccer tournament in Dayton, Ohio but I decided to write by topic. Here is what I wrote Saturday morning. For anyone new reading my blog, I have an 8-year-old and 12-year-old in soccer and both are… Continue reading Travel Soccer- Saturday Night Dinner
Yesterday was the start of our journey an hour and 40 minutes away, to participate in a soccer tournament for both sons. I did have to work a half a day in which part of the day was cleaning out our building as we are moving into a new one. Occasionally I would see the… Continue reading Travel Soccer Journal Entry-Friday
I’m so fucking annoyed right now. I have nats crawling on my monitor while a fly taunts me around my head. “Not today Satan!” I scream as I clap my hands together and catch the nat. I’m drinking wine, I’ve got a blog and I’m not afraid to use it. It’s 9:30 p.m. and this… Continue reading I’m Annoyed And Over It!
I’m always looking for inspiration. Today as I sat in my car, praying the lighting would hold off so soccer would continue on, I found this amazing little nugget. I laughed like I do when I see awkward family photos or people of Walmart. I will try (really hard) to not pass judgement. And maybe… Continue reading Disney Princess Nugget
It’s quiet here, about 11:30 pm in Ohio. I am reflecting on the day. Though it’s Monday, my house looks like a frat party just took place. I have a passed out boy on the sofa. I look over to the table and see one last bite of an Ikea cinnamon roll, stabbed in the… Continue reading Reflecting On The Day
As I type this my 8-year-old is working on snack #1. He’ll probably end up tapping out at around 4 snacks this evening. My oldest, the 12-year-old, isn’t even done with his dinners yet. Despite a steak dinner at 6:30, he’ll probably have dinner #2 then begin his parade of snacks, stopping around midnight. Like… Continue reading How Do My Children Eat So Much?
Now my son didn’t wake up Sunday and announce to family and friends, “I wish to be Tupac or Eminem.” No, he has simply requested, nah, demanded a set of luxuries that go beyond my husband’s and my means. Maybe these would be possible if my husband didn’t put hundreds of dollars a month into… Continue reading My Son Wants To Live Like A Rapper
