My Kids Are Slowly ‘Chip’ping Away At My Sanity

If I’m not doing laundry, chauffeuring kids some place, cooking (ok maybe not all the time but they are fed daily), picking up nasty ass socks off the floor (I’m looking at you oldest child), helping with homework (when I can because seriously that ‘New Math’ just confuses the hell out of me), I can […]

Shit Happens at White House Black Market

Shit happens to me on a somewhat regular basis. Just the other day, I needed to partake in some retail therapy so I headed to my favorite store, White House Black Market. Typically I don’t shop, like ever, and when I do it is because I have an event which lures me into the store. So […]

It’s Fall Fuckers

It is fall fuckers and there are all sorts of shit about this season that makes me scream Alleluia. My birthday is just around the corner, and I am not one of those people that dreads their day of birth. Nope I say bring that fucker on. My whole family has to be nice to […]

My Zumba Debacle, Never Again

I have a love – hate relationship with my body, and currently it’s heavy on the hate. I’ve topped the scales at my highest weight ever and I am not happy about it. Part of it is due to medication changes, fucking pills, and the other part is due to my deep love of craft […]

Is it Safe to Leave Your Kid Home Alone?

My son is  just one month shy of being 13 years old. He is going into 7th grade, stands about an inch (shhhhh…) taller than me at 5’6″ and 190 pounds. He’s not a tiny guy. We use to call him Baby Godzilla when he was a toddler, now he’s just Godzilla. I’m giving you his baseball […]

The Truth About Vacationing with Kids

The evolution of a vacationing with my kids goes something like this…. The week prior to departure I am busy creating piles all over my dining room table. I make lists upon lists, and buy enough snacks to feed an army…or two kids on a five hour flight. Cameras are charged, backup batteries are charged, and electronic […]

Life Hacks for the Lazy Gardener

I’m not what one would refer to as having a ‘green thumb’ – mostly because of a lack of effort or any desire to have dirt stuck under my fingernails. This loss of lust for manual labor does not mean I don’t enjoy a beautiful landscape, or a lush flowerbed. I have pined over English […]

Missed My Flight, But Got My Wings from the Angels

The last two months have been filled with a lot of pain and sorrow for me and my family. On March 17th my father passed away after an extended illness. Somehow knowing his death was imminent helped me when his time came to pass. I thought I had said all my goodbyes, cried all my tears, and […]

Things I learned in Roatan: Monkey’s are A**holes & Bring Enough Cash

We spent a week in Roatan, Honduras scuba diving with an amazing group called Kids Sea Camp. The program brings together families from around the world that are interested in vacationing in tropical locales while their children safely become certified in scuba diving, or receive advance scuba certifications. We have vacationed with them twice before and […]
