Adult A.D.D.

I'm notorious for not being able to concentrate.  Seriously, I'm not sure how I made it through school and got straight A's.  Perhaps I've developed A.D.D. as an adult?  In fact, I'm pretty sure I have.  My counselor a few months ago asked me if I had ever been diagnosed.  I laughed it off at the time, but the more I think about it, the more I wonder "is she right?" ...more

Orgasms, Heaven and What Exactly is 'A Few Days'

So, I have been feeling superdy-freaking-duperdy overwhelmed the past few days.  A few days is never an exact number, is it?  Like when the pediatrician asks me how long a kid has had their fever and sore throat, and I say a few days.  By few days I am referring to maybe 18 hours, but it is (usually) a Friday and I want a back-up antibiotic prescription just in case Saturday rolls around and sore throat is now major problem.  Or, how long have I been overwhelmed?...more

What Women Do When They're Unhappy or Stressed...

I'm interested to know what you do when you're unhappy or stressed or confused about life.Do you read a book, take a walk, punch a pillow, pray? I'm more one to brood or sulk, and I need to get out of this habit! I'm compiling a list and then doing a blog post on my findings later this month. Thank you in advance ladies!

I avoid everyone, decrankify with a good book, and eat chocolate. more

Aging in a Prison of Indecisions While Menopausal

As I sit and write, a drying-out prune from so much crying (lately I seem to cry a lot), I am aging in a prison—partnered with menopause—and indecisive about my life: stay fat, lose weight, to exercise or not to exercise. But darn it; make a decision soon, for my health’s sake. What to do…? But why do today what I could put off and do tomorrow? Do. Don’t! Yes. No! But then tomorrow never comes. And only if I am lucky, I’ll die of old age waiting, while still deciding. Now that’s-a-hoot!...more

A Stressed Mom’s Guide to Entertaining the Kids

My best girlfriend, Ann, is a stay-at-home mama. Over-prepared is an understatement to describe her; she is over the top. Anytime we go anywhere, even a fifteen-minute drive, she has packed every kind of snack: a carb, a protein, a fruit, a veggie. She has packed every supply imaginable, things that make noise, things that are snuggly. I basically show up with the kids.  ...more

Help, I’m Totally Frazzled!

I would like today’s Blog to address a comment a friend of mine made to me the other day. It went something like this: “Erica, I have to tell you, I’m losing my patience.  I’m yelling at my kids a lot lately.  I can’t remember the last time I sat on the floor with them to do a puzzle. I’m short tempered with my husband. I’m pulled in a million different directions, and I’m completely frazzled!”...more

5 Quick Ways to Get Your Giggle On™

Having a bad day? Stressed? Need some comic relief? Here are some easy, free and simply solutions to incorporate silliness into your day: 1. The Underwear Solution Take a CLEAN pair of your panties (thongs, bikini’s, granny panties - whatever you’ve got) or a pair of boxers (the underwear, not the dog), briefs or jock strap (who still wears these?) and place them on your head, backwards.
