God, Please Turn Me into a Computer

So I wrote a post the other day, and I was trying to include video, and it was just NOT WORKING. I used Youtube’s old code, the new code, the Morse code, any fucking code I could think of, and the damn video just would not show up. After wasting about 30 minutes of my […]

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 […]

Pet Peeve #983

I have called this list Annoying Things and Pet Peeve and it’s pissing ME off that I’m not being FUCKING CONSISTENT. That right there IS one of the things that annoys me most: inconsistency. However, if you think of that I am going to list something here about MYSELF, you are sadly mistaken. I beat […]

Being Smug A Day Too Late and Why Some Marriages Work So Well

You may recall that, much to my delight, Punksin made it onto a new and vastly improved swimming team. I am excited beyond belief. They had a family picnic for all team members the day after she was accepted and although we didn’t yet know anyone, we went. The head coach was excited and surprised […]

Kicking and Screaming All the Way

I can’t believe summer is almost over. I SWEAR it was like, 2 DAYS ago, that I was standing outside with Punksin and her good friend from swimming, talking about camps and the tree that fell in front of our house and what do you MEAN it’s almost over? I’m not ready for it to […]

The Disintegration of 15 Days

It wasn’t too long ago that I was writing here about looking forward to my 15 days of bliss, remember? 15 days during which the kids would be at camp, the hubby would be at work, and I would finally, oh finally, have some wee bit of time…to myself. Not insane amounts of time, mind […]

Things You Don’t Want to Hear Your Husband Say

“My pee-pee is burning.” It was these words that I heard the Tech Guru exclaim to me a few days ago. Putting aside the fact that, yes, he did refer to his penis as his pee-pee (this is the kind of shit that happens when you have kids), it was…mildly disturbing, to say the least. […]

It’s Not PMS and If You Say It Is I’ll Shank You

I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I’ve been incredibly irritable the past several days. I’m not sure if the Lexapro isn’t working so well, or what it is. Maybe it’s the vacation I keep saying everyone else needs. Clearly I could use one myself. But I think – I think the reason I’m not […]

Renovations Up the Wazoo

Jeez, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I need to get done around here. No, this is not apropos of the recent argument. This has everything to do with me being bored with the way things are looking around here. When we first moved in, I was all in my British Colonial […]
