DQ Does NOT Mean Dairy Queen

So there was OTHER shitty stuff about yesterday that I didn’t get into. Yesterday was Punksin’s first OUTSIDE meet. I’m trying to think of ways in which it could have been worse. I’ll start with the good news, though, because there is some. The good news is, she’s over it. The good news is, her […]

And The Award For WORST MOTHER Goes To…

Sigh. Boy, did I screw up today. ROYALLY. Yesterday evening, I looked at Pudding’s parka, and it looked a smidge dirty around the neck, so I decided to throw it in the wash. And, for good measure, I threw Punksin’s in too. Today, we’re about to go and run some errands, so I run into […]

I Have Lost the Battle

I have tried and tried but as the years have passed, IT has gotten stronger and stronger, and I have no weapons left. IT being the thick rainforest that inhabits my daughter’s head. For the past several years, I have been engaged in an epic battle to tame my daughter’s hair. I should have known […]

The Most Vile Thing on Earth…

has to be peanut butter. Next to Mitt Romney, that is, and yes, I’ve just given you some idea of my political leanings, and if that means you don’t like me any more then GOOD RIDDANCE TO YOU. I can’t imagine how anyone who is not White, male and rich could possibly conceive of voting […]

What Exactly is She DOING in There?

Several days ago, Punksin handed the Tech Guru her Christmas list. He looked at it, raised an eyebrow, and silently handed it to me. At first glance, I noticed that it was a short list. Only 4 things. Which is good, because we can only fit about 4 more things in our house before it […]

Short and Not So Sweet

There are life updates. Seriously. I’ve just been in too shitty a mood to go into them. Some of them have been good. Some of them have been not so good. And although in either case I tend to be pretty wordy with the here’s-what’s-happening-in-my-life posts, right now, I am so not in the fucking […]

The Valley of the Shadow of Death

October 4th, 9:00 AM: Punksin has been sick since last Saturday [the 30th] and now that she is on the tail end of it, Pudding is starting to show signs of also coming down with a cold. Throughout the night he has not slept well due to a stuffed nose. He awoke with a slight […]

I Am Officially No Longer A Lexapro Ho, Whoo Hoo!!!

Hey folks, I got a song for ya to sing: (to the tune of Happy Birthday – the real version, not the Stevie Wonder MLK version. I hate that crap. I mean, I like the real song but I don’t like to hear it sung at a regular birthday party. It just…rankles.) Congratulations to me, […]

Let’s All Waste A Lot of Time, Shall We?

Today was Back-to-School Night at the kids’ school. Given that I sent in letters today informing their teachers and the principal that tomorrow would be their last day, I figured they’d realize I wasn’t coming. Apparently, I was wrong. Punksin still had to do a whole bunch of work today that was going to be […]

Them Hormones Are A-Raging

So yesterday, for some reason, I got into I-want-another-baby mode. Maybe it was because both of the kids were out of the house and I missed them. Maybe it was because my period was ending. Maybe it was because I had lost my mind. I don’t know. But I just thought about how awesome Punksin […]
