I Chose to Work.

“Motherhood is hard work. It is repetitive and often times menial. Accept it. Rejoice in it. This is your toil. Right here. Those are their faces. Enjoy them. The days of your life are supposed to be full of things like this. But joy is not giddy. It is not an emotional rush–it is what … Continue reading

Mom’s Day Out

My husband knows me. I try to act like he doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he tells me that I need to get out of the house…but he’s right. I don’t like to admit that I’m the type of person that needs time to be with just myself. I’m not sure why. It … Continue reading

Embracing The Ugly

“The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.”  ~ Steve Furtick I saw this quote for the first time as I read the blog of one of my new followers and it has been stuck in my head ever since. I even have it written in … Continue reading

Let’s Just Call It a To-Do List

I hate resolutions. I think the whole idea of them is stupid. Ok, maybe not the WHOLE idea…but the act of everyone making them at the beginning of the year, just to break them and go on with the existence that they didn’t like in the first place, is stupid. I like the idea of making … Continue reading

The Return

The return of my old self? Eh. We’ll see. You guys know that I couldn’t stay away from here for very long, though, right? I tried, but it’s making me bitchy. Have you been filled with anticipation waiting on me to come back and write something filled with Southern snarkiness? Didn’t think so. That’s ok. I … Continue reading

Fake It ‘Til You Make It

First and foremost, I don’t know if you’ve noticed – probably not, since I’ve been really sucking on the posting lately – there’s a little link off to the right that will take you to my new Facebook page. I gave in. So…if you’re a Facebooker, like me, go give it a like. I can’t guarantee a … Continue reading

Pinterest Wins Again 2: Electric Boogaloo

Pinterest Wins Again 2: Electric Boogaloo

Watch out. I’m about to get all Martha Stewart on your ass. I’ve pinned a lot of shit on Pinterest. Mainly recipes and DIY type stuff and honestly, I haven’t done or made half of them…but this is the best thing I’ve discovered since booze. (Obviously I did not discover booze. I discovered that I … Continue reading

Back To School – A Breakdown

The kids started a new school year a few weeks ago.  I’m obviously a little late with this post. I think the novelty has probably already worn off – for them, certainly for me, and for everyone else in the blogosphere – but I’ll write about it anyway.  Let’s face it.  It’s a huge deal … Continue reading

Haiku Friday: Pinterest Wins Again

I recently learned about the rash of blogs, books, and websites dedicated strictly to haikus about life as parents.  Have you heard about this?  I feel out of the mommy loop on this one.  Google it. There are lots to look through. I was directed to Suburban Haiku and I have to say she’s pretty funny.  … Continue reading

It’s The Little Things.

Just a few moments ago, I was finishing up some things on the computer – getting ready to shut it down and tackle some dishes in the sink. The Gummy Bear was next to me in her bouncy seat nodding off.  I was a little distracted by trying to finish what I was doing and keep … Continue reading
