The Dentist

Vance recently chipped a tooth. He has also been playing rugby at recess. I believe these two events are related, as are the mysterious bruises that have been appearing as well. He did not connect the dots, I helped him out.   ...more

Assessing the Mess

Time escalates at an alarming rate as I pass through life.  I am already planning on responding to Nablopomo comments and such during lunch tomorrow so I can have the evening to clean the house before I have laser eye surgery on Tuesday.I don't know how I used to do the 8-5, raise a kid, help the hubby at his work, take care of the house, be a girl scout leader and remember to buy milk.  Oh that is right, I had a breakdown, duh.    Seriously, how did I once juggle everything?...more

Honest Bulls**t

What’s the best story someone else has recently told you (in person, preferably)? Share it with us, and feel free to embellish — that’s how good stories become great, after all. Would that be considered gossiping?  No?... Alrighty, then! :D...more

Powerless Over My Eyebrows

Throughout my forties, I have gradually gotten used to the fact that “things change”.One day I woke up and my right boob was just…bigger. (Yes, I scooted in for a mammogram. Diagnosis: Right Boob Bigger.) High heels are no longer my friends. And don’t even get me started on the chin hair phenomenon.It’s all okay, though. Truly.I pluck, fluff, adjust and I don’t mind at all. I rather love getting older....more

Your Hair is Burning...

I am blonde. I am smart. However, I have these moments in which I could swear the dumb blonde stories are talking about me. Thankfully they are mostly rare, and provide a lot of hilarious moments. My friends always say, "Well bless her heart. Isn't she cute?!" after I've said some outrageous comment. I think it's their southern way of saying well aren't you a dumb ass....more

I Hate the Things You Love, Can We Still Be Friends?

I cannot tell a lie. Maybe it's because I've never been good at lying. Or maybe I'm still traumatized from that time in 1986 when I told my mom that I was going to a late movie with friends but went to a party instead and awoke the next morning to a note that said simply, "Call me at work about last night."  Regardless of the reason, I am all about telling the truth...even when it gets me in trouble. So, today, I have a few things I must confess to you. ...more

Patience Cards™

T: West, can you spare a few Patience Cards™? Me: Sure, what’s up? T: My mom called and they’re having issues with their router. She asked if I could come help my dad sort it out. Me: *sympathetic silence* Please take what you need. T: I wouldn’t ask, but I just loaned my sister my last two PCs™ because our cousin needs help with her resume. Me: What’s mine is yours. I have nothing in the foreseeable future that necessitates any, so take ‘em. Godspeed....more
