Morning Hell, or Heaven?

Most mornings in my house consist of me waking and dreading the next hour of my day. It is nonstop action from the moment my feet hit the floor, and believe me I’d rather them not. I have two dogs that insist upon being walked and fed before any other activity in the house is […]

Scuba Diving in Roatan, Honduras with my Autistic Son

Scuba diving was never on my bucket list of things to do in life. I never pined to swim below the water surface and explore reefs, or experience sea creatures of varying sizes. However, it was my son’s obsession and when he turned ten-years-old I reluctantly signed up to learn how to scuba dive with him. […]

The Eulogy of My Father

My apologies for my recent absences. My father had become grievously ill and subsequently passed away. It was not a total surprise, considering the man’s life has been on the line many many times, however he had always rebounded. I would be lying if I didn’t say a part of me expected the same outcome, […]

Winning Isn’t Everything

When my children first began playing sports I naturally assumed they would be the best. However, the reality was much different. Growing up I was a top athlete without even trying. I ran track/cross country (not the coolest sport to say the least) and for some unknown reason I had a natural knack to win, or […]

Fifty Shades of Autism

“Just as no two snowflakes are the same and everyone has a unique set of fingerprints there are shades of autism.” I tell my twelve year old son. The older he gets the more aware he has become of others who hold the same diagnosis he does. “Mom, this boy at tutoring is weird. He […]

Lord Help Us, The Recorder Makes an Entrance

We’ve just passed a milestone here at the House of Shit. I had thought we would skate by checking this one off the parental bucket list but apparently not. My daughter recently switched schools and after her first day at the new school she came home with the most dreaded piece of equipment any school age […]

Why a Mom Can’t Take a Bath

The other night I did something that was so impractical and selfish it was amazing. Something I have only done a handful of times since living in my home the last fourteen years. I’ve always been held back by the ‘after mess’, and let’s not even discuss the awkward dismount. But Friday I was pushed […]

A Mother’s Christmas List

This year I’ve set the Christmas wish list bar pretty low. In the past I have dreamed of beautiful sweaters, that I ear marked, circled the size, and lovingly put the catalog in my husband’s lap. I’ve scrolled through winter coat after winter coat online to find the perfect one to wrap myself in warmth […]

My Kids Are Lazy, Help A Momma Out

My kids are lazy, and yes I know I have a hand in this as well. I’m not in denial, I realize they are lazy because I just don’t force them to do more around the house. The thing is, whenever I see any of their shit left lying around I call them out on […]

The HOA Has Created A Bunch of A-holes

There is a rampant amount of douchery going on in neighborhoods around America and I have had it. When the fuck did it become common to just report people to the ‘Almighty Neighborhood Mafia’ (HOA) without first attempting to converse with the offender, and by offender I mean neighbor. WHY can people not walk across […]
