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!!

You’re Lucky I’m Not Crazy

Today was an interesting day. Nothing Earth shattering, just…interesting. The Commute to Work I have a 50 minute commute and when I spend 90% of my morning blogging and 10% actually getting ready for work, sometimes the getting ready part leaks into my commute. I know this isn’t exactly role model behavior but I put… Continue reading You’re Lucky I’m Not Crazy

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.

15 Perks of Going to Prison

So I’ve been a fan of Orange is the New Black on Netflix, since day 1. It’s well written, the characters are believable and it’s funny and thoughtful as well. Why I had never listened to the book (I don’t have time to read so I use audible for my ridiculously long commute) was beyond… Continue reading 15 Perks of Going to Prison

I Dreamt You Died

“I dreamt you died,” my friend/co-worker said to me today. “Come again? Wait…what? How did I die?” “I can’t say,” she responded. “You can’t tell me you dreamt I died then not tell me how I died. Was I decapitated?” “No.” “Was I raped?” “No.” “Then tell me!” After a few seconds she paused and… Continue reading I Dreamt You Died

Dining With Divas- A Short Memoir of Eating with my Children

Dinner time in my house is something of a cluster and I’m partially to blame. One of the most uncomfortable feelings for me is going to bed hungry. In fact, I’ve never gone to bed hungry because I physically can’t go to sleep hungry. That being said, for me to implement the rule of “this… Continue reading Dining With Divas- A Short Memoir of Eating with my Children
