Toxic People That Are Family Are Still Toxic

There. Someone had to say it. I've written about family issues - generally speaking - on this blog before, and I am sure I'll write about them again. But when I go through the history of my posts on this issue (the family issue), I can see a change in me as I've aged. As… Continue reading Toxic People That Are Family Are Still Toxic

What You Should Do The Next Time Someone Calls You A Bad Mom

The last twenty-four hours have been a little bit surreal for me. I'm not sure why - as my husband said just this evening, weird events mixed with our usual day-to-day at-home nonsense is the norm.

Is it just me, or are people taking themselves too seriously these days?

We went to Target today. I had to get some of those Clorox bleach wipe things, some of those toilet flusher things, and deodorant. Don't want my pits to smell bad. So we went to the "fancy" Target. It isn't really fancy, actually. It's in the ghetto-est town in our county, probably the ghetto-est town… Continue reading Is it just me, or are people taking themselves too seriously these days?
