How To Survive a Car Trip

Hello Travelers!  Well, are you SURVIVING?  I hope so.  This week we are going to tackle HOW TO SURVIVE A CAR TRIP.  If your family is anything like my family, then driving is your best option for vacationing.  There are five people and two dogs in our household, which makes air travel a bit more difficult. Now, with that said, driving across the country with five people and two dogs […]

The Best Laid Plans

I know I posted yesterday…but life often presents scenarios that are simply too much for me to keep to myself.  Also, this blog is cathartic for me and is cheaper than therapy.  As most of you know, my daughter spent last week in California. She came home last night. We all knew she was coming home.  It was not a surprise POP-IN visit…nope…we all knew she was coming.  There was […]

San Diego Living

Greetings to all of you out in Cyberville!  I trust that your summers are in full swing and off to a roaring start.  Hopefully your summer has been less eventful than mine.  Thus far, we have seen an orthopaedic for a broken ankle and made a middle of the night emergency room run for a ruptured ear drum/concussion from a wake boarding accident…welcome to my life. For the past week, […]

Neverland

  Welcome to Neverland.  No.  This isn’t a land inhabited by Peter Pan, Wendy, the Lost Boys or even Tinker Bell.  I have no fairy dust to offer you.  Today I will be your guide through Never-Land…as in, “When I have children of my own I am NEVER going to do ___.”  Fill in the blank with the gem of your choosing.  Looking back over the last fifteen years of […]

Confessions of a Terrible Stay Home Mom, Vol. 2

So…thanks to all of you who made my last Confessions post my most read post ever.  Turns out my readers are sick and twisted and thrive on the pain and misery of others!  I give y’all two very enthusiastic thumbs up.  You’re my kind of people.  Building from the foundation that y’all want to read all about my epic failures as a useless Stay At Home Mom, I thought I […]

They Can Be Taught

At my house, Summer is in full swing.  With the wonderful season of Summer comes the whining, the constant eating, the swimming, the always-on TV, and the never-ending drone of I’m bored. You’re BORED??  Are you kidding me right now?  There’s an X-Box, a Wii U and a pool table upstairs; not to mention a Play Station and a SWIMMING POOL downstairs…but what do I know?  I’m just the Mom.  […]

The Gas Mask

Does anyone know where I can get a high quality, military grade GAS MASK?  I’m totally serious…as in, not-even-kidding.  I have two teenage boys.  No one warned me that one day they would wake up and no longer smell like sweet angels from the meadows of Heaven.  Where was THAT memo??  Not one of my “friends” who have traveled this path ahead of me, thought to mention to me that […]

He’s Not My Father

Happy Father’s Day!! It’s Father’s Day today, and I’m sitting on my couch enjoying the peace and quiet before all manners of creatures awake in my house.  I can smell the delicious quiche baking in the oven that I made for my hubby.  I am about to set out all of his goodies that the kids and I have collected for him to showcase our appreciation for all of his […]

Did You Just TODDLER Me?

So, I was going to entitle this post, “The Circle of Life.”  You’ll figure out why as my thoughts unravel.  But with that title come certain side-effects.  For instance, how many of you are seeing and hearing a major Hollywood blockbuster soundtrack rolling through your mind at this very moment?  I know I am…and it has been that way for days as I planned out my post. I have had […]
