He’s Not Old, Damn It!

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!

The Difference Between the 1st And 2nd Child

Admittedly, I have done a disservice to my oldest-P, by doing waayyyy more for him than I should have.

Hot Mess Vs. The Hoarder

Do you guys know the show Hoarders? Where a gray-haired woman is defending why she has 3 frozen parakeets in her freezer. Or a balding man insists on keeping every JC Penny catalog since 1987?

Everyone Should Have To Be a Server and Work in Retail

My friend and soul blogger No Love For Fatties, recently discussed her first job as a server (go check her out!) and it got me thinking about my own experience, considering I grew up in the restaurant business.
