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. 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

We love to have fires. It’s somewhat of an invitation for all surrounding neighbors to come and join us…..and bring alcohol. Tonight… Continue reading I Just Got Spooked!

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? I’m afraid I’m raising a hoarder. Why? My 8-year-old son’s room is a nightmare. And it’s not some large room,… Continue reading Hot Mess Vs. The Hoarder

Toys R Us Going Bankrupt

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

Day 1 of Dieting

I promise you guys this, this will be the last time I mention a diet. This isn’t a fitness/health blog. I just find some funny in my views about it since I’m essentially dreading everything there is about a diet.
