Seth McFarlane Strikes Again

I have been mad at Family Guy for approaching two years now. When I was pregnant my morning sickness was really hit or miss. Some days, I’d have no symptoms at all. Other days, water would make me puke. When water is your sometimes-enemy? You really don’t know what to expect. One particular day, I […]

Spinal Meningitis Got You Down

So, many of you know, I adore Sue. She writes some of the most moving pieces on motherhood – and some of the funniest. I enjoy visiting her blog. It brings peace and wisdom. She also endorses Waldorf schools which I am slowly but surely finding myself a big proponent of. Mostly because I can’t […]

Where Etiquette Fails Me

I have a favorite stall in the bathroom. I feel weird that that’s true but it is. I do not like it when I rush to the bathroom at work to find someone in the stall I like. First, I practically live in there so people should know that that is my place. Secondly, it’s […]

Sometimes, I’m a Bad Wife

They think their parents can fix boo boos with kisses. They believe that there might someday be a zombie apocalypse….uh, nevermind on that […]

The Fountain of Old

I’m not able to picture 80s rock stars as anything but old men. No, no, stop. Try it. I know that there was a time when Tommy Lee did not look like a piece of leather. When the lead dudes from Warrant were young and hip. But in my mind, they are constantly middle aged, […]

You Say It’s Your Birthday?

Today is my mother’s birthday. My mom who offered to drive 45 minutes each way to help us pack. My mom who once proudly wore the “Brooke Shields bushy eyebrow”. My mom who held me close, even when I was so sick I was hallucinating, without worrying about getting sick herself. (Although she probably worried […]

Housing Crisis: The Crisis in My House

I’m going to see if I can do this fast. With some Martha Points flair. Or, as we normally call it, cheating. We bought a house. We bought a house and rented our condo. We bought a house and rented our condo but then our closing date got pushed back. We bought a house and […]
