Happy belated Father's Day to all the single Mommas out there. Doing it on the daily.

Yesterday, I drove my daughter to camp. It's a 6 day camp, and they aren't allowed cell-phones, ipods, or any other means of electronic communication.So for the next 6 days, it's just me and the boy. This is what our first day alone sounded like:6:43am - MOOOOMMMM!!! Waaakkke upppppp!!!!!!6:44am - Can we have pancakes for dinner?6:59am - Can we have pancakes for dinner?7:16am - Can we have pancakes for dinner??...more

Stuff ADHD people like, part I

I haven't blogged in FOREVAH, because I couldn't think of anything funny/witty/poignant, or simply entertaining to write about. Except for that one thing that happened two weeks ago, but I'm not going to blog about that, because I know some gossipy beyotches, and I didn't feel like having my family be the topic of the monthly get-togethers. Again. BOOYAH! ...more

Why yes. I DO speak Zachinese.

Last November my 9 year old son was tentatively diagnosed with Autism by a developmental pediatrician who works for the local clinic for kiddos with developmental disabilities. The Dr. wanted to be sure, so he scheduled my son for a full Autism evaluation, which happened this past March. This all came about because I knew something was different about my son, but I just couldn't put my finger on it. ...more

Character flaws!

It's been a while since I posted, I honestly couldn't think of anything to write about, so I've been leaving it alone. Until about 5 seconds 8 days ago, when I belatedly realized that OMG I HAVEN'T SHARED MY CHARACTER FLAWS WITH YOU GUYS YET!! ...more

Some of the best and worst places to meet potential love interests, Part One

So, as most of you know, I became divorced/widowed last year. It's true, I have tried to play the "widow card" on occasion, usually when on the phone with customer service representatives. It has helped in some situations (big shout-out to Liz from T-Mobile, woohoo!), and not so much with others (let me give a GIGANTIC f*ck you, to Robert from patient accounts). But to be fair, I was divorced in January and he died in April, so there are a ...more

Just dropping in to say a quick hello. Literally.

Soooo. I haven't seen you guys since the middle of April. I got my yellow stripe in Kuk Sool Won last week, how do you like it? And yes, I totally got this idea from Jillsmo, because she rocks. ...more

Did I impulsively, obsessively, drunkenly charity bomb your facebook page two nights ago? I'm sorry, my bad.

Ok, I wasn't really drunk, I just said that to get you to read this. But, since you're already here, let me ask you something. Have you heard the term "charity bomb"? I haven't, I'm pretty sure I just made it up. Let me google it. Ok, it looks like it's been used as a noun, as in "Ron Paul is holding a charity bomb tonight", but apparently I'm the first person to use it as a verb. So when it ...more

About penises, OCD, The Boy and donating to my charity. Only completely random.

I haven't blogged for a couple of days, because I'm trying to raise MASSIVE amounts of money for the kids of St. Jude. Seriously, these kids go through chemotherapy, radiation, needles, basically living in a hospital and losing their hair. They often miss out on Christmas, their birthdays, Thanksgiving and Halloween. Because they're busy trying to STAY ALIVE. Think about it. So I decided to take whatever unfinished posts I found in my queue and somehow put them together so you ...more

Letting Go

One year ago today, I went to your apartment, and you were dead. You proposed to me April 4th, 1995, and we were married April 6th of 1996. For so long, April was my best month ever. It meant life, renewal, hope and love. Until last April. Last April, I made a mental note of what would have been our 16th wedding anniversary, if we hadn't gotten divorced. And then I moved on. ...more
