“Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” Mr. Rogers Mr. Rogers and his absolute loveliness are forever entrenched in my soul. You can find a Mr. Rogers episode anywhere and his words of wisdom and comfort will always apply. The world is scary and we just want to look for […]
It’s official. We have reached lucky 13 and I officially have a teenager. How crazy is that?! I barely met the kid and now all of a sudden he’s already been hanging around me for 13 years. Weird, right? I mean, I think it is anyway.
I was talking with my mom a while ago and I told her I’d been having some down days; struggling with my depression a bit. In a little plot twist during this talk, I told her I’m happy I deal with depression and anxiety. Mom: I’m sorry. I’m sorry I passed this down to you. […]
Eww. Teenage boys kind of suck. And the ones in the teenage preparation stage, or preteens, as they are widely known, aren’t any better. Preteens suck too. This whole phase is a general suckfest of confusion, rage and patience testing for parents. There isn’t even a gradual descent into this madness. You’ll kiss your kids goodnight and […]
Hey guys! Today I thought I’d let you into the wonderful and often weird world I live in. It’s usually fairly boring, but it has moments. Anyway, let me tell you a bit about last week.

Monday, The Boy turned 12. I know, I can’t believe it either. Like, I – a single woman – have willingly put a broke ass short man’s needs ahead of her own for 12+ years. Willingly. Bonkers. I’m still not sick of him. What’s weird, is that it never felt weird. Life is insane and […]
Monster Jam Is Life Last weekend was our annual trip to our personal Disneyland. Well… The Boy’s anyway. That’s right folks. Monster Jam came to town and per tradition, we were there. Getting sandblasted and inhaling gas fumed for several hours. That is what we call a good time. The Boy has loved Monster Jam […]
WHO ARE YOU?!
