My Kids’ Sports Are Starting To Drive Me Insane

This month - May - is National Tennis Mom's Month. At least that's what the USTA says, and since May is Mother's Day, it makes sense. I am a tennis mom. I drive my kids hundreds of miles a week, spend close to $2000 a month, and live my life on the sidelines as my… Continue reading My Kids’ Sports Are Starting To Drive Me Insane

The Real Reason You Shouldn’t Go Out (Or Take Your Kids Out) Sick

It's cold and flu and cough season. I have had a cough for three weeks now. Obviously no longer at the point of being contagious, I have resumed regular life; although I still get dirty looks every time I hack or clear my throat in the grocery store.

So I’m Now (Apparently) A Petty Thief

Well. Where to begin? I am now (apparently) a petty thief. That is if you ask the manager at the La Quinta Inn and Suites a few towns away from where I live.

Groupon Is Basically A Scam Now, and I’m The Last To Know (Also Men Wear Rompers Now, So Basically Screw It All, I Give Up)

So I bought a Groupon last week for a local photographer. Let me start by saying that finding a photographer worth the money around here is tough.
