Oh. Thank. God. School is starting up again soon, in some parts of the country it already has, and I really couldn’t be more relieved. Let’s all take a moment to give thanks. (Pause for hallelujahs!) I love my kids. I really do. But I’ve got to be honest with you here…they’re driving me freakin’ […]
I love moments like these…
I am absolutely not kidding when I say that I am sitting here on my couch, looking out my picture window into the backyard and watching my almost 3 year old son, Jack, trying desperately to pull his pants off and pee into his wading pool. Man, I wish I had that kind of determination. […]
Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighbor’s…Smokin’ Hot Body!
So there I was just finishing up my 3-mile fast walk, my iPod ear buds floating out of my ears from all the sweat pouring down my face, limping from the inevitable blister forming on my right heel when she comes running towards me looking fresh off of a Shape magazine cover shoot. You know, […]
How Much Freedom Should We Give our Kids?

Choose Your Pets Wisely
Okay, I recognize that this is a very random thought put into a bunch of words but I feel it is something that needs to be said. My cat’s a real jerk. A supreme jerk. The kind of jerk that causes a little shock and dismay as to how an animal can exhibit such indifference […]

Okay, I need to ask a question.Do you have kids?Do they, at times, annoy the hell out of you? Do you, at times, need ways tokeep them busy so you can actually get something done with your day? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of the aforementioned questions then ponder this next question for me […]
I guess I’m not too good for Canned Food Warehouse…
I know I am certainly not alone in suffering from overpriced groceries and inflated food budgets. We are a small family of 4 and I am increasingly amazed at how much it costs to feed us on a monthly basis. I’ve recently begun trying to find ways to save a little money and have been […]
I’m No Gardener…But I Can Clean the Heck out of My House!
I’m ashamed. Truly ashamed. Shameful. I have subjected my kids to a side of me that should have never reared its ugly head. There was sweat…lots and lots of sweat. And tears…tons of tears. And there were words…bad, bad words. What tragic scene caused all of this mayhem, you ask? I mowed the lawn yesterday. […]
What in the Hell was I Thinking? SAHM Woes…
Well, you asked for it so here it is. A glimpse inside my brain…an understanding of my soul…a glance into my psyche…Okay, so you really didn’t ask but I feel a need to talk about it so just deal with it! As I explained in my first entry, I am a stay-at-home mom. (AKA: stay-at-home […]
