Bio

 I'm a recovered alcoholic raising a teenaged girl, preschooler, and an toddler. All my kids are at ripe ages, and I have NO vices left to use as unhealthy coping skills. 

I blog about the stupid parts of life that deserve some time and attention, general things that bother me, and the joys of cleaning cream cheese off of my curtains. I blog to keep my sanity and to remind myself that laughter is not only the best medicine, but the only one I can consume in safety. If you can put the kids to bed and have a glass of wine to relax, that's amazing and I am a little jealous. I get to pray, take deep breaths, meditate (cuz I have tons of time), and practice yoga (yeah right).
