diary of a mad hatter

I'm a 30ish mother and wife who shares my personal stories, unsolicited opinions, and ridiculous, nonsensical thoughts, all of which are based on Real Life with a sprinkle of hyperbole and a dash of exaggeration on my blog, diary of a mad hatter.

You can also find me on PinterestTwitterTumblrInstagramFlickr, and Google+. And rather reluctantly, The Facebook. 

I think I just blue myself.

My to do list is a million miles long, my house could be on Hoarders (as an after picture not a before...you know how it looks all cleaned up but still you can tell there's a problem? Mine is like that but maybe a little worse because you can actually see a lot of the mess). I've been sick. The baby has been teething. The teen has been trying to get out of going to school everyday of my life ....more

Mad as a hatter, I am. Yoda, also.

My life has been very hectic lately. Between a 5K and family drama and a teething baby and a teen on a 2 week spring break and work stuff and spending any free moment I have laying in bed I am exhausted. Here is what has been happening in my life. Because you need to know. THE WHOLE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW. OMG, someone sedate me. STAT. The Teen (formerly known as The Kid) ...more

This is my life now: napping and pooping.

ERMAHGERD YOU GUYS! Today is NATIONAL NAPPING DAY! Why didn't anybody tell me? I would have taken the day off! Although, really, it should be a federally recognized holiday complete with paid time off. Amirite? Let's see how many other made up Internet-y words I can use in this post today. El oh el. ...more

The happity hap hap haps.

Hello Internet! I had to take a break after Nablopomo. Blogging errryday (minus weekends because obviously) was tough. I don't know how so many of you churn out thoughtful, engaging writing errryday and still do other things like eat and sleep. Life here in casa de mi is great. I can't complain. Well, I can, but I won't. ...more

The last one.

"When do you feel your sexiest?" I don't recall feeling sexy in a very, very, very long time. Between fertility drugs and the pregnancy and the baby, feeling sexy is on the bottom of the list. Right next to "exercise" and "eat healthy". I could say I feel sexiest after a day of pampering, manicure, make up, fancy clothes...but the truth is that just makes me feel really tired. Also, hot. As in sweaty. So much work to make the ...more

Fast and only on Saturdays.

Mae West described sex as "emotion in motion." Unpack this idea in a post. I don't wannnnna. Sex is gross. Talking about it lately really bums me out. Probably because I am so very, very, very, very, very tired. Also, Prozac. ...more

Sex education.

"Do you think sex education should come from the parents, the school, or a mix of both?" ...more

Symbol of sex.

Today's question is, "Do you think you would enjoy being a "sex symbol?" I'm not sure why that the question is phrased the right way. Think? Would? Shouldn't it just be, "Do you enjoy being a sex symbol?" Because, obviously I already am a sex symbol. I mean, come on...nothing is sexier than hair that hasn't been washed in two days, hairy legs and pits, a milk-stained tank top, yoga pants that are too big and also holey in the ...more

What is love? Baby don't hurt me.

"Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies." -Aristotle Aristotle be cray-cray. I struggle with this...what kind of love? Romantic love? Familial love? This kind of love? (Do not judge lest you be judged, to which I say, JUDGE AWAY BECAUSE OMG THIS CAN'T BE REAL?!) ...more

All you need is love. And soap.

All you need is love. Amirite? This. Not this. Although my The Teen (formerly known as The Kid) would disagree. ...more
