The Little Things

Sneaky When I was a gigantic, six months pregnant, our then four-year old daughter, Keely, surprised the shit out of me one night by crashing on the couch super early. Fell asleep on her own and didn't stir much even as Zander licked dinner off her fingers. This never happened.  Usually, there's plenty of drama... Continue Reading →

Short Little Outbursts

“Write hard and clear about what hurts.” - Ernest Hemingway Sometimes I feel like screaming. Not very original I know because everyone in the world feels like screaming sometimes. But I don't have the luxury of actually doing the screaming. My husband and I are not even being nice to each other at this point... Continue Reading →

Summers long ago, we were lucky enough to experience weeklong family vacations.  An entire week = soo lucky. The 'rents, my younger brothers and I drove to a different spot every summer. Colorado Springs, Niagara Falls, New York, and Washington D.C. - all while in the family truckster (station wagon to the young'uns). But most vacations took place in the upper Midwest,...

Pants On Fire

You ever have your "best friend" lie to you - on purpose? How about someone who would steal from you even though you would've just given them anything had they just asked?  By all means, I'm no saint but - I. Fucking. Hate. Liars. It is the worst sin you can commit in any relationship. My... Continue Reading →

F*ck Politics.

So Clinton and Trump both jump off a cliff. Who survives? America. #LandoftheFREE #HomeoftheBRAVE   Don't know bout you but I may have to tough it out in Canada for a few. Canada: because I can't speak spanish and I need better healthcare.  

Worst. Day. Ever.

"Let me call you back when I know what the EMTs say..." One phone call changed this little family's life and came in the wee morning hours, late spring. At a spry 33-years old and while working his part-time second job, my husband suffered a stroke. I know what you're probably thinking, so let me squash those thoughts right... Continue Reading →

Well, I’ll Be

SO Not Elderly According to this video (posted by TheFineBros via YouTube), I'm an elder. Hey, it shocked me too. My music taste is eclectic and usually depends on my mood at the time. I've always favored hip-hop/rap/r&b, but also pop/top 40, alternative/indie, classical/jazz/opera and rock (mainly from the 60s and 70s). Only listened to... Continue Reading →

HTML This, B*tches

"You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try." -Beverly Sills [Belle Miriam Silverman], (1929-2007) HTML Today I'm going to take on a new challenge suggested by my husband, who happens to be a database admin. I keep telling him that I need a new hobby but I want to... Continue Reading →

Asinine

Unbelievable that we listen to this nonsense. I'm not saying I disagree with the hypocrisy of federal regulations vs. state, but... seriously? You don't have any other topic to discuss other than marijuana legalization? (I don't know about this "CNS news source" either but when I saw this....ugh, puke). This guy...Check out this embarrassment representing... Continue Reading →

My Faves

I can't imagine what I was thinking when I came up with this list of fave quotes. Just go with it. “Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everyone I’ve ever known.” – Chuck Palahniuk (1999), Invisible Monsters “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and...

Drained

Ten days ago I promised to write something every day on my new blog. I haven't. Totally sucks because I am really serious about getting this shit off my mind and fuckin' with someone else's. You know...just for a bit. But suck me sideways - long ass week and to top that off our 12-year-old... Continue Reading →

Quote This

Do you ever quote movies in response to real-life situations? Our family sure as shit does. If something happens around here that reminds us of something we've seen in a movie, we quote.  Let me give you a few examples as I know you're dying to know what the hell I'm talking about. Our oldest... Continue Reading →

          This is my outlet. I gotta write something every day and today's that day. Not entirely sure what I'll write about just yet, so know that this is a work in progress with inevitable changes I'm sure. I've got some kids, I stay at home to raise them and I... Continue Reading →
