Do you love your house? I have a love/hate relationship with my house. I love it because at least we have it. And I hate it because, well, it’s not what I want, or where I want to be. My husband and I bought this house a few months before we got married. It has {… Continue Reading …}

The One Where I Spill My Guts About My Son’s Behavior

I’m going to be honest with you guys. I’m really tired of my son. The level of disrespect and general level of unhappiness is becoming so distressing that I’m barely functioning as his mother. I don’t want to be around him. I don’t want to do anything for him. I’ve given this so much thought {… Continue Reading …}

Little Old Ladies

Little Old Ladies

Little Old Ladies. Who used to meet their friends for coffee at Woolworth’s. Who would wrap their restaurant leftovers in napkins and put them in their purse. Who used their caring insightfulness to help guide us through our troubles. Who we named our babies after. Remember them? I do. I’ve been struck, lately, by this {… Continue Reading …}

The Sucky Last Few Days

Sometimes I feel like the universe conspires against me. One step forward, two steps back. I know the universe doesn’t conspire against me, of course.

As someone who is actually very strong and confident in so many ways, I feel awkward thinking and feeling this, let alone writing it for everyone to see. I often wonder how people develop their sense of fashion. I really have no sense of fashion. Mine is more like, sensibility. If it fits and is {… Continue Reading …}

And so I’m back…from outer space

super nova by the Smithsonian

When you generally blog at least every-other day, not blogging for over a week seems like a really, really long time. Remember this post? This was the last post I wrote, except for yesterdays incoherent stream of consciousness post. It was the beginning of what I call being sucked into a deep deep dark dark {… Continue Reading …}

Every emergency plan should include ginger ale

My wake up call came at 3:30 this morning. The baby was up, this time with a little drama, which required nursing, rocking, back rubbing. The funny thing is I kept hearing some sort of faint moaning/crying sound. I was thinking ghosts at first. I mean, naturally, right? And then I thought there was something {… Continue Reading …}

Who’s having a pity party? This girl!!!

This morning I’m having one of those mom-fail, pity party mornings. So, I never get a chance to sleep in. I’m either up starting my work day at around 4:00 am, and/or I’m the one who gets up with the kids when they get up at the azz-crack of dawn any given day of the {… Continue Reading …}

Hoarders: email edition

clean out your inbox

Today I came to the most shocking realization of my life. I can’t delete emails. I am an email hoarder. What is with this? I save EVERYTHING! Does anyone else do this?
