I Don't Want to Come to Your Jewelry Party

Dear Mouthy Housewives,My new friend is selling one of those jewelry lines. Stella and Bella or whatever. The jewelry is not exactly my taste, but I feel bad not buying anything. She hasn't pressured me at all, however I don't want this to jeopardize a new friendship. Should I just buy something?Signed,Keep Your Crown Jewels Away From Me   ...more

My Husband Won't Support My Dreams

My husband is in the Army, and is currently living 1,800 miles away from me while he trains for his upcoming deployment. In the meantime, I've been in the process of chasing a dream and starting my own business over the last year. It's been slow, tedious work, but I'm finally getting liftoff and gaining momentum. Each time I call and excitedly tell him about the good news, he pisses all over my joy. He'll get skeptical and cynical, and ask about the worst-case scenario, and offer a halfhearted, "Uh…well, congratulations…" It's heartbreaking. I love him to death, but I'm on the brink of doing something amazing and need his support and encouragement. Help! ...more
Three cheers for following your dreams! @audreygriffin more

Why I Hate Back-to-School

My kids hate the start of the school year. This is completely understandable, of course. They’ve basically lounged around doing nothing for the past three months, so going back to a structured routine seems like unfair punishment. They whine and complain and act like they’re aging hippies suddenly forced to put on a suit and tie and go work for The Man instead of selling water pipes at Phish concerts. School just totally harshes their mellow....more
Very funny Wendi. Love it. more
