I’m giving you the gift of 5 minutes in the bathroom. Merry Christmas.



I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve watched this video, although it’s probably somewhere between twenty and I’m-too-embarrassed-to-tell-you times. It’s just one of those things that’s made me go WOW...why would I ever buy a movie ticket again when I can watch this caliber of entertainment in the comfort… Continue

Have you heard, I'm doing crafts with my kids? - What? YES I'm serious.

This year, St. Nick gave the kids a gingerbread house kit, in spite of Mrs. St. Nick's strong objections. Mrs. St. Nick reminded Mr. St. Nick that the last gingerbread house she put together took two glasses of wine and assistance from a MIT structural engineering student.…

The photo shoot behind my December's masthead. Brought to you by high-fructose corn-syrup and an ass.



The photo shoot behind December's masthead. Brought to you by high-fructose corn-syrup and an ass.



Well, it's that special time of year again when I dangle my children by their ankles and ply them with promises of high-fructose corn-syrup treats to pose for the camera. It doesn't take much coaxing, though, since they're processed-food-sugar-junkies. Admittedly, I am their enabler.



Anyway! It's December! So a new masthead!… Continue

A life-list of stuff I hope NEVER happens to me before I die



On my mental to-do list is, ‘Write a Life-List.’ Lots of you may already have one, and for your sakes, I hope you’ve been regularly crossing off accomplishments and adding new items, because Oprah knows when you’ve been naughty or living YOUR. BEST. LIFE!



Oh wait, she already did her Christmas giveaway show so who gives a shit. Mediocrity, you may carry on! …

That time I forgot I had a baby. Okay, ONE of the times I forgot I had a baby.



Towards the end of my second pregnancy, I began searching for a cute diaper bag, preferably one which cost less than my car payment and would dress-up my maternity-jeans and stained tee-shirt postpartum uniform. Also, if I could find a bag with wide enough straps to cover-up one of my leaking breasts, well then, all the better!

Mr. Secret Service Agent Man



Back when I sold real estate, I had a client who was a Secret Service agent. Mr. Secret Agent Man was stationed here in Milwaukee and when President Bush came to visit, Mr. Secret Agent Man asked if we'd like to bring Lexi down to the airport and check-out the presidential fleet of cars and by checking-out the presidential fleet of cars he meant show our daughter duffel bags full of assault rifles and Kevlar vests.… Continue

Some of you may find this technique disturbing...you someones are dead to me.



Last month, the school sent home notes announcing the first quarter parent/teacher conferences were to be held the second week of November. Conference sign-up sheets were at school and we should stop in ASAP and schedule a meeting before all the slots filled up. Since my memory is about as reliable as the pull-out method, I wrote myself a reminder note. … Continue

Must I fix everything in this world?

Last week, Lexi had an assignment which required a poster-board. Actually, it didn’t require a poster-board, notepad paper would have worked too, but it seems like the new generation of teachers prefer everything from a haiku to a spelling assignment completed on poster-board. It’s like these teachers are compensating for something else. You know what they say about a teacher who assigns over sized homework, don’t you?… Continue

Holy hell, it’s dark o’clock. Do you know where your day went?



I don’t. Today was all about phone calls to insurance companies and doctors’ offices, and now I can safely say I know the direct extension for the 10th ring of hell. ...MORE… Continue

That was fun. Now I have to lie down.



So yeah, life. Boy, it can feel like a caffeine-free, Monday morning sometimes, and then other times it can fill up your heart and inspire you to bake pie or open a fun-size candy bar wrapper. Have I mentioned, I’ve officially added fun-size candy bars as a fifth food group since week? Just writing that made me hungry for a Twix bar. You don’t mind if I chew while you’re reading this, do you?… Continue

"A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle."



Heidi and Whitney went as princesses for Halloween, which was cool, although I'd kind of had my heart set on dressing them up in Gloria Steinem costumes. At least they weren't wearing bras. And, I will have you know, these princesses weren't just pretty, but also smart and kind, because that’s what really counts. That and a good credit score. ...Continue… Continue

My new masthead is up!



A small part of the nightly, bedtime routine in our house involves singing a made-up song to Whitney and Heidi. The bigger part of the bedtime routine involves pleading with them to just...get...in...bed...ALREADY! I’d sob hysterically on their bedroom floor, but that would exhaust all my remaining energy reserves I usually earmark for brushing my teeth.… Continue

Feeling fat? Go on a thought diet.



So I’m feeling fat, and I’m pretty sure the shoes I’m wearing make my butt look big. I usually don’t mention when I have The Fat Feeling since it makes me sound like I swallowed Kim Kardashian and burped up her vanity, however, I’m pretty consumed by The Fat Feeling right now. It's not that I'm o.k. with giving up so much of my brain’s real estate to The Fat Feeling, but The Fat Feeling hired an aggressive real estate agent behind on her car… Continue

Mama needs her straight-jacket straps tightened



Friday afternoon, I took care of some long over due errands. Along with me were my three girls, plus one of Lexi’s friends. You know, back before the babies were born and it was just Lexi, adding a friend to the mix meant 1 kid + another kid = 2 kids. Now it’s 3 kids + 1 more kid = 5,734 kids. Mothers out there with three plus kids, I can’t decide whether I should admire you or send in the US Army Reserves to aid you between nap-times.…
