More Than Warriors

I have three amazing kids.  No, really.  I know a lot of people like to tell you how great their kids are but usually they are just shining you on to make themselves look better as parents.  Harsh, but true.  *Bluntly honest disclaimer:  I know I’m a flawed parent and I’m not afraid to admit it…   …so I’m not looking for […]

Cursing…it never gets old.

This is a post from over a year ago but let’s face it…cursing, especially like a lady, never gets old.  Never.  Especially in hockey season.   So…my husband just showed me this video because, and I quote, “It made me think of you.”  Aaaww…thanks babe. Obviously, this post is not safe for work or kids or nuns.  Or my mom. […]

Now vs. Then

Wow…it’s been about 7 months since the last time I wrote anything.  Not just on here but creative writing in general.  And so very much has occurred over those last 7 months that I don’t even know where to start.  I’m vapor-locked by the sheer tonnage of ‘stuff’ that’s happened over the course of my writing break and I can’t […]

Here’s the plan…

Ah, writing, how I’ve missed you.  Not having a creative outlet has kind of been draining for me these these last few months and yet I haven’t had any energy to use my creative outlet…it’s like a vicious, literary death spiral. But now, things are hopefully settling in a bit in my work life, which translates to my at-homelife, and […]

Plane Rides Are Fun.

So…it’s been over 4 months since I posted on here.  Don’t even have the energy to recount all the things that have gone on during that time, so I’m not going to try.  Sorry, I know you were just dying to know…   But here’s something cool that happened recently:  I flew in a plane.  Yeah, I know, right???  Crazy […]

Review Night – Movies & Music

Every once in a while I throw out some random movie reviews and it’s been quite a while since I did one, so…strap in because tonight it’s a twofer.  You get a movie review and a review on a completely awesome band as well.   First, the movie:  The Family Stone.  This is my all time favorite Christmas movie.  Yes, […]

My kids are smart-asses…

My kids are smart-asses.  It’s the truth, I’m not afraid to say it.  In fact, I’m actually pretty proud of it.  Because they aren’t smart-asses like a lot of teenagers are: disrespectful little bastards, spouting off with over-the-top sass to feel like grown ups.  My kids are smart-asses in the best sense of the word:  self-assured, smartly cynical, and only […]

Coffee is the root of all evil…

Holy shit, people…it’s like the world has gone all topsy turvy and coffee is to blame.  Seriously, it’s caused so much irreverent offense that it should be scolded and put in the corner.  Go, coffee, go sit in the corner and think about what you’ve done. So, here in America we’ve had the Starbucks HolidayCupGate event going on where people […]

Wonder Woman is the shit.

Wyatt just had to have an updated sports physical (because he decided to wrestle the year after all: WA-freakin’-HOOO!!!), and apparently he needed some updates on his vaccinations so they treated him to Wonder Woman bandaids on both of his shoulders.  I thought it was awesome…him, not so much.
