I have no idea why we decided to do this, obviously Carter and I were bored, yesterday morning. I turned the Alexa to French and attempted communication with the 3 words of French I know. Obviously this proved futile as she didn’t understand me, the first go around. Here is the short 3 minute video… Continue reading Hey Alexa!
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!!
For anyone that hasn’t seen To Catch a Predator, it was a show on Dateline NBC and ran from 2004-2007. Chris Hanson (the journalist) and team would lure male predators in by impersonating a young girl or boy (usually around 13-years-old) over the internet. After online communication, the decoy (a very young-looking adult), would agree… Continue reading To Catch a Predator- A Look Back
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
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
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
Soccer parents aren’t suppose to have jobs since soccer games are planned half way across town, at 6PM and on a Friday night. Who needs jobs? Shit! We’re all trust fund babies right? Unfortunately, we need to have these jobs to pay for the thousands of dollars amassed between fees, uniforms and hotels. Tonight, my… Continue reading Ass Drums
I have been a part of the corporate world most of my life. I realize that a few folks reading this may have corporate on their horizon or eventually get back into corporate. I want you to be prepared to speak their (somewhat ridiculous) language. In addition to corporate often times resembling an episode of… Continue reading 15 Corporate Terms We Hate Part 2
“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
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
