National Treasure, My Ass

Nicolas Cage and I have a weird relationship. I cringe at the sight of him. He pretends I don’t exist. It’s weird. Like we dated once and had a bad break-up. There’s some truth to that. I loved the Cageman in Moonstruck. Just watching him lose it completely was awe inspiring. “I lost my hand! […]

I told Him I was Sorry….I’m a Liar

So, today I’m supposed to lie to you. Don’t blame me. Blame Lori. I have a feeling Not-Martha wants you to start distrusting me. Ah, so, Lori at In Pursuit of Martha Points started telling lies. The point here is to make 6 statements, only one of which is true. The rest of you have […]

Help Wanted: Toddler Terrors

I’d really like to be funny today but I’m too tired. Wild Thing has been waking in the night again. Not from hunger or being over tired. From terror. His screams pierce the night and I find myself awake on my feet, my heart pounding in my chest. He screams the horror movie scream. He […]

Because You’re Mine

Since I have recently been invited to and/or stood up in eleventy-one weddings, I can say this with the utmost conviction: that party was fun.

Nice Day for a White Wedding

I am going to need some serious waterproof mascara because I am sure this is going to make me sob big, fat, goopy tears all over my Disney-princess bridesmaid dress. In my every day life, I don’t wear mascara because I’m prone to crying. But I’m smart enough to know that my sister is not […]

Secrets, Secrets Are No Fun

Except when they are awesome. I can tell you at least three other bloggers who normally keep their children’s name a secret but who have revealed them to me. I keep this sacred trust. I do not reveal their names to others. I rarely use them with the moms themselves. Because I want to show […]

I’m Sometimes Inappropriate and Often Quite Odd

I have been having a severe case of The Writer’s Blockages. It’s where my brain is filled with a million and four great post ideas until I sit down at the computer. Then I can only get the post half up. It’s like I have erectile dysfunction. Oh, my husband is just going to LOVE […]
