My Fiance and I split up after 13 years. It was a messy and heartbreaking mess. Mostly my fault. There aren't enough words or apologies to make up for any of it. I made decisions and I suffer from the consequences. Fast forward to 8 months later. I'm in my own apartment. I have a… Continue reading Life Changes
It's quiet. Too quiet. It's that type of quiet that you know. The type that is familiar. You thought it passed. Thought it went away, but it didn't. Depression sucks. It's not picky either. It creeps up on the most unsuspecting person and plants itself deep inside your soul. Sometimes you can ignore it. Sometimes… Continue reading It’s quiet.
How many times as a parent have you been to a birthday party? How many times have you thrown a birthday party? So now, how many times, have you had to use the strength of Hulk to open the gifts that your little ones received at the birthday party? ME TOO. I hate birthday parties.… Continue reading Birthday Gifts
Today is the first day of school! Woo! I'm Soo excited. Just kidding. I think. Can I get a show of hands on how many Mom's are going to make homemade skeleton brownies or Frankenstein pretzel rods and send them to school? Because I'm going to need your assistance in October. I really thought I… Continue reading Not a Pinterest Mom
Do you know how hard it is to function on little to no sleep? Of course you do, you're a mom. Our very existence in our house means no sleep. Or at least very little. My husband sleeps through everything. I mean everything! If there was a burglar or a tsunami it wouldn't matter. He… Continue reading Who needs sleep?
When I was a kid I didn't have a tablet. No lap tops, no game consoles that accessed the world wide web. I had a box in the living room that we could play mine sweep or solitaire on but it took twenty minutes or so to boot up. I spent most of my summer… Continue reading Technology Sucks
It's 4am. I'm awake for the 4th night in a row because my almost 7 year old is all of a sudden terrified of literally everything. She won't sleep all night. She won't sleep without a light (and we talking something bright enough to see from space). She won't play outside for fear of blood… Continue reading Noises, Bugs and Nightmares
It happened. That dreadful evening when you are scrolling down through your Facebook feed and you see it. A post from a friend. A link to page. A story of a young life taken too soon. You jump to conclusions before you click. Thinking it was something common, an illness. Then you start reading. It's… Continue reading #RIPSloan
So I found out recently that I have a pinched nerve due to a herniated disc at my L4-L5 vertebrae. It's painful. It's getting in the way of day to day activities. Laundry, dishes, changing diapers even. I've been struggling to drive and to get around the house. It's been going on now for about… Continue reading When Back Pain is a Pain in the butt
As mom's and wives we have a certain level of tolerance when it comes to things that our family in the household do on a daily basis.

We cater to every tiny thing without so much as smudging our non-existent… Continue reading Little Things Husbands Do That Drive Us Nuts
