Huh. I just realized the last Friday Favorites post I published was a few weeks ago and it was titled “Indulgences.” This week it’s “Gluttony.” Nothing like making my way through the seven deadly sins this summer. Again. And yes, I know indulgence isn’t formally one of the seven deadly sins, but it’s close enough to […]

You guys, it’s been so long since I’ve posed a Friday Favorites I feel like maybe I should take a moment to reintroduce them…but since I know that those of you who usually read them are long time friends of YMFT (hey girl, hey) I probably can skip that and get right to my apology […]

One week, you guys. It’s one week until summer officially starts in my house. Sure, Thing 1 has been home for a couple of weeks already, so her summer is well underway, but Thing 2 still has a week to go, and I don’t count summer as starting until I can sleep in until 9:00 […]

You guys, I have alarming news. My face is sagging. And listen, I’m not just saying that because I’m getting older and it’s what you’re supposed to say when you are a female and you are getting older. My face is really sagging. I just had a medical doctor tell me so. (In other news, […]

I love to sleep. Actually, that’s an understatement, but I can’t think of another word besides “love” that conveys the message more. I cherish sleep? Worship sleep? Yeah, those too. It’s true. My mother tells me that when I was a little girl, a bedtime wasn’t necessary. In fact, I’d often ask her how much longer […]

46. Forty-six. XLVI. Quarante-six. (Damn, even in French it sounds old.) Tomorrow I will be 46. What. The. Hell. Like I always say about my children, I blinked and it happened. Actually, that’s not entirely true. Those years from birth to about age 15 seemed to totally drag. If you’ve been following along here the […]

I know what you may be thinking: She’s really going to tell us about her colonoscopy? Is there nothing sacred to that woman? Ha. While I don’t normally make it a habit to tell you about my … uh … habits (bathroom habits in case you needed that made clear), I have no problem opening […]

…you never know what you’re gonna get. If my 2014 had a motto, that old, overused —yet always fun to say in your best Forrest Gump voice—adage would be it. Actually, when I think about it, that metaphor would have worked beautifully for 2012 and 2013 as well. Let’s just say that I’ve bitten into a […]

I’m a big fan of over-justifying things. From the very legitimate “I should take a nap today because I didn’t sleep well last night,” to the borderline dubious “I should eat these three mini Nestle Crunch bars in the fridge because I need the shelf space for this new tub of butter.” Borderline, but still legitimate.
