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

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 know I have several readers from all over the world and I want to know, do your schools send kids out, selling for fund-raisers? Raise money for new playground equipment! Earn money for our music program! Send the band to the Rose Bowl! This is all well and good but my 8-year-old brought up… Continue reading School Fundraisers
Over the weekend we went to a soccer tournament and I had the pleasure of hanging out with these lovely ladies. Unfortunately the 3rd lovely lady wasn’t there yet but probably barreling down the highway at 95 mph. scared shitless as her husband drove. In this video I had made a copy of a co-worker’s… Continue reading Hot Mess Discusses Drugs
