My early morning conversations with my 12-year-old seem to becoming more and more ridiculous as the school year marches on. I wouldn’t trade them for the world. We have approximately 20 minutes between the time I wake up and the time I drive him to the bus stop. In a hung-over haze, I quickly attempt… Continue reading He’s Not Old, Damn It!
My oldest never goes grocery shopping with me anymore and I miss that. My youngest was at soccer practice so I took it upon myself to bribe him heavily to go. After promising him a venti-mocha-frappe-choca-something, it was a done deal. You know, I always go into the grocery store thinking that “this time will… Continue reading Hot Mess and the Sailor
Admittedly, I have done a disservice to my oldest-P, by doing waayyyy more for him than I should have. My philosophy was that part of the way I show I love him is by making sure to cater to his every whim. Now he’s 12 and here is the conversation we just had yesterday morning….… Continue reading The Difference Between the 1st And 2nd Child
It was just a typical Monday (which means it sucked) yesterday when I checked my Twitter account. Low and behold I received a message from Erin who is the awesome blogger of Unbound Roots. She nominated me for the Liebster Award and I am over the moon! Please go check out her blog! Thank you… Continue reading Nominated For The Liebster Award!
Apparently at some point, it was deemed sexy for your spouse to have a bald lady-area, similar to that of a child. Thanks a lot porn stars. Now if lucite, platform shoes become the fashion, that is where I will draw the line. A few years ago, my husband had offered to pay for my… Continue reading Hot Mess and the Brazilian Wax
Last year I wrote a post about painting my mail box or lack thereof. A blind woman would have done a better job. I’m not handy and my husband isn’t either. So slowly, I feel like our house is turning into a dump and I need to do something about it. For starters, in the… Continue reading Ill-Equipped to Power Wash My House
I don’t like having the “S” word anywhere in my blog, especially in my title. I’m fearful Google will think my site is the dreadful “S” and somehow block me. But when I get a new batch of spam comments, I simply must comment on them. I commented on an original batch, here. What I… Continue reading Hot Mess Reviews Spam Comments- Part Deux
So up until last week, I would go through about 4 plastic water bottles a day. Last week my company moved into a new, beautiful office, complete with a filtered water dispenser for water bottles. We were pleased to find little treats on our desk one day like a branded umbrella, a Tim Horton’s gift… Continue reading Pick My S’well Water Bottle
Victims of this tragedy, you are in my prayers tonight. Every person impacted by this today, tomorrow and all of eternity, I am so sorry. There are no words for this. I applaud each and every person that showed bravery during this tragedy. Some heroes risked their own lives to insure others would live. I… Continue reading My Message to Las Vegas
Just when I thought I was blessed for getting 1 video of parents behaving badly on Saturday, along comes a second little nugget today. For those of you that don’t know, I’m a reluctant soccer mom. I party hard with my girls but you’ll never see me creating obnoxious, Pinterest, soccer crafts or driving a mini… Continue reading Parents Behaving Badly
