Funny thing happened on the way to the tub today

I had JUST gotten Audri to stop crying at the prospect of taking a bath, which involves cleaning the burn on her forearm.  She has good cause to not want to deal with that mess.  Anyway, I had gotten her shirt off and then the doorbell rings.  Twice.  Ding dong, ding dong.  I go and … Read more

The #1 Reason Why I Absolutely Cannot Vote for Trump

The presidential election is only two days away.  My guess is that if you’re reading this, you’ve already decided how you’re going to cast your ballot.  I don’t think for one second that I’m going to change anyone’s mind here.  I only want the people that I know and love who are passionately pro-Trump to … Read more

Why I Never Gave my Baby Away to Gypsies and I Never Will

This morning was a pretty familiar scene in our household.  Lex had been up in the night, which of course meant that I had been up with her.  She’s a super snuggle butt during the night, which is AWESOME.  She’s 7 and has ADHD and I know the snuggles are only going to get fewer … Read more

To flush or not to flush? The real facts about dumping old meds.

I’m a hoarder.  I’ve accepted it, I’ve admitted it and I’m working to remedy it.  In going through tons of stuff, I realized I’ve got medications that are older than my daughter.  My 8 year old daughter.  Sigh. I’m not a gross kind of hoarder; I don’t collect trash and my house isn’t covered in … Read more

It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle change

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that is a salad!  Granted, I’m eating it at 11:00 pm on my (possibly STILL flea infested) sofa in a Jethro Bodine bowl with a Star Wars spork.  But here’s the thing: in my fridge, directly at eye level, is a cheesecake.  And not JUST a cheesecake.  A made from scratch, … Read more

Shaving vs Waxing

I shaved yesterday for the first time in two years, give or take.  I immediately remembered why I haven’t shaved in about two years.  Holy painful shave bumps, Batman!  And the next day stubble was also pretty fun.  No, no it wasn’t. And no, I didn’t look like a Wookie stepping into the shower.  I’ve … Read more

I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

TL;DR I don’t always make good choices while in the grip of a panic attack. And now, the rest of the story… I’ve lived with anxiety and depression for so long now that I honestly don’t even remember what it feels like to be “normal”.  Seeing it in black and white that way is pretty … Read more

My Attempt to Avoid Controversial Issues

This is real shit. These are real people. This is raw emotion and logic and violence and optimism and frustration and hope and fear and love all jumbled up. You don’t want to watch the whole thing? You can’t make that much time in your life to witness something that matters? Real people with real … Read more
