4 Halloween Costumes Under $10

Normally for Halloween we are pretty good about getting the boys costumes about 2 weeks in advance. It’s not obnoxiously early and there is still some selection. This year, we’ve had soccer tournaments every weekend and practice in the evenings. That being said, we went out for a costume (yes, singular, the teen is too… Continue reading 4 Halloween Costumes Under $10

How We Aren’t Decent Human Beings at a Hotel

Yesterday I wrote a post called How to Be a Decent Human Being at a Hotel. What I failed to mention is that during out-of-town soccer tournaments, we are really just a big pile of ass holes. Seriously. D’Nial ain’t just a river in Africa and I can tell myself that our behavior isn’t horrible… Continue reading How We Aren’t Decent Human Beings at a Hotel

Oh Balls!!

I don’t know if you’ll be shocked but we had a soccer tournament this week, 40 minutes away. Though I wanted Carter (my 9-year-old) to win, a part of me didn’t want him to advance to the semi-finals which was at 7:30 a.m……on a Sunday….and we had to be there by 6:45 a.m. I didn’t… Continue reading Oh Balls!!

I Hate Cooking

Look, I’m just going to be real with you guys, I don’t find any pleasure in cooking. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been excited to make something. Cooking to me is a chore and whoever coined the phrase, “a woman’s place is in the kitchen,” should go down in… Continue reading I Hate Cooking

Candy Nazi

Last night was beggar’s night for us. My youngest went as a shock trooper…..with a buckeye hat on. My oldest went as some creepy thing with a white mask. After kids in the neighborhood began to mistake him as a mime, I think he somewhat regretted his decision. We covered 260 houses at break neck… Continue reading Candy Nazi

Failing at House Cleaning and Halloween

As I look around my house, I’m reminded of episodes of Hoarders. A tumbleweed drifts by, aka Chichi’s fur. Additional reasons my house looks like a hoarders’ paradise? A smelly shin guard and water bottle sit on the kitchen table we eat food off of. A pot my mother-in-law cooked us a meal in 2… Continue reading Failing at House Cleaning and Halloween

A How To Guide On Playing Football

As I completely miss the soccer ball my 8-year-old kicks to me, I’m reminded of how little to no experience I have with any sport what so ever. Every skill these boys got is from my soccer extraordinaire husband. With the exception of soccer (which I do find tedious if it’s not the Crew or… Continue reading A How To Guide On Playing Football

The F’ing Water Park

My oldest turns 12 next week. In January he went with his BFF to Kalahari Water Park to celebrate his birthday. Upon return, P exclaimed he didn’t want a party this year but an overnight at the water park for his birthday. Eureka! No more designing the perfect invitation, securing the venue, buying the decorations,… Continue reading The F’ing Water Park

Reblog: Hot Mess’s Guide to Understanding the Election Process

I am reblogging this in case you want a quick tutorial (with my take) on the popular vote versus the electoral vote so you don’t say “screw it”, close your eyes and pick one. It’s very confusing and hell, I’m going to reread this post later tonight to brush up on the process! Hot Mess’s Guide… Continue reading Reblog: Hot Mess’s Guide to Understanding the Election Process
