For Women


I’m currently a little more than three quarters of the way through Felicia Day’s book “You’re Never Weird On the Internet (Almost)” . Now, I could be a normal person and wait until I finish the book to talk about it. But meh, I’ve never been normal.

Now I knew who she was before […]

Not allowed

8 years. Tomorrow marks 8 years since my father passed away. I’ve written a lot about it (no, really: start here, then here, and here ). I honestly thought I had gotten past it, because the past few years had been much more successful emotionally when this day came and went. I felt I had […]


I realized, after Timehop so kindly reminded me, that I haven’t blogged in a year. It’s not for lack of want. It’s not for lack of material. It’s not for lack of motivation…ok, one of those is a lie (hint: it’s the last one). I guess I just allowed it. I’ve been having this […]

This is the post where I gush about how amazing life is

I will resume my birthday posts as soon as I possibly can. I just felt that I needed to write, since it has been way too freaking long since I updated.

I have so much to tell you. Olivia and Sophia are growing and thriving so much! Both are doing well in school (3rd […]

Little Things…My Facebook status updates-June 18, 2013-July 5, 2014

If you just sprinkle in a few (okay more than a few) links with social commentary attached, a bunch of “My babies are sick, this sucks” posts (usually followed by “OMYGAWD I’m sick now” posts), you pretty much have the past year in our lives. While the past year has been crazy–it has been crazy […]


I struggled with being completely honest, because of course, the internet never forgets and I don’t want my kids to read awful things about their family online.

But then I realized that I can be honest without being vindictive, evil, catty or mean. Because, I am classy.

The first few months after he left […]

E-bookin’ it

I love books.

If you have been a reader of mine or know me at all, you know I’ve written about them and my love for them a lot. Type “Books” into my search and BAM…posts on books.

It was really becoming ridiculous in my house, because, let’s face it, I don’t really re-read […]

Do it do it do it.

I keep telling myself that I need to sit down and just do it. Just write and hit post. But, I still struggle with it. I have a million and one things I want to write about, some personal, some kid-related, some just random shit I notice. But, I still have a hard time.


The Year in Status Updates

So. Yeah. I was back. I AM back. But I’m going to be honest with you, being a single parent is tough. And while I applaud those who can do it and still successfully manage a blog, obviously at this stage in the game, I am not one of them. I’m doing the best […]

The healing process

It started this past weekend. The fits of crying for stupid reasons, eating stupid food, feeling like I wanted to simultaneously throw and hug things. I knew, but I pretended it wasn’t happening.

Today is my father’s three year deathiversary. I’m not sure if that is a socially acceptable way of saying “anniversary […]
