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
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
The Fall brings chillier weather and neighborhood fires. No longer are we forced to shave our legs every other day, sometimes extending leg shaves by a week. Is that just me? Sorry, TMI. 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!
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
Ok, I was bored and had miscellaneous things to tell you so I thought, ‘why not a vlog?’ So that’s exactly what I did. No one was home anyway and so, here is my 5 minute-ish vlog discussing life. I’m sure it will be inspirational for you.
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 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. Lunch Adjustment Now normally in the morning when I make my lunch, I layer on… Continue reading Day 1 of Dieting
