Greetings from Cincinnati! We are here for 2 days for a soccer tournament and though I was concerned there would be little to no shenanigans, I was pleasantly pleased with last night’s events. Casino Night “Are we going to the casino or what?” One dad demanded over pizza in the sitting area of the hotel… Continue reading Soccer Parents And the Casino
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
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
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.

I’m so fucking annoyed right now. I have nats crawling on my monitor while a fly taunts me around my head. “Not today Satan!” I scream as I clap my hands together and catch the nat. I’m drinking wine, I’ve got a blog and I’m not afraid to use it. It’s 9:30 p.m. and this… Continue reading I’m Annoyed And Over It!
Saturday kicked off the beginning of soccer season with what is known as a friendly game at 9 a.m. for my 8-year-old son, while my husband was taking my 12-year-old to his game. To be honest, there isn’t such a thing as a soccer season. Perhaps a soccer year? It’s like a unicorn or big… Continue reading This Isn’t A Locker Room!
This post is a a bunch of miscellaneous so I apologize for the ADD like qualities of it.

My title says it all. I’m on day 3 of attempting to put together my son’s new bed from Ikea together. Allow me to demonstrate my mindset and where I currently am in the process: I’m on step 6 of 52 steps. On day 1 I realized I had one of the sides attached but… Continue reading Ill Equipped to Assemble Ikea Furniture
