Merry Christmas!!   I know, I know, it’s not Christmas yet. Not just because my 12 year old has been counting down the hours until Wednesday morning for the past three days and doesn’t think she can bear it that time isn’t moving more quickly, but also because I’m still giving myself carte blanche to […]

When was the last time you were surprised? I mean, really good and surprised? Not in a “oh-crap-I-wasn’t-supposed-to-get-my-period-until-next-week” kind of way, but in a “you’re-taking-me-on-a-long-weekend-away-tomorrow?” kind of way.

When your kids get older, Halloween becomes a lot different (more on that later in the week). But even though one of my kids hasn’t dressed up and gone trick-or-treating in a few years and this may be one of the last years for the other one, I have many, many fun memories of Halloweens […]

I never had a Cabbage Patch Kid. I think maybe it was because in the early 80’s when they really took off and became popular I was too old to play with dolls. Or maybe it was because they were ugly as shit. Whichever it was, the fact that I was never a fan became […]

You guys, I’m having a mental fatigue moment that’s lasted for about 12 hours (I can actually hear the sarcastic thoughts seeping from Husband’s brain as he read that high in his office 10 miles away. And no, Husband, that is not an understatement). Sure, I am fatigued physically pretty much all the damn time […]
