Dinner For One

Valentine’s Day is this week. ARE YOU READY? Someone said this to me today when I was picking up my kids from tennis. I smiled and nodded, and said “what about you?!” In reality, I should have said “Dafuq? Ready for WHAT?” Valentine’s Day, traditionally, is a huge disappointment for me. Most years, my husband…

[Just A Long Post About Laundry]

UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH. We need to talk about laundry. I don’t know about you guys, but laundry is probably going to be the thing that does me in. Honestly. It’s not the cooking, which I loathe and yet find myself spending about three hours a day doing. It’s not the cleaning, which – again – I’m not…

Life was so much simpler back in 2011…

I don’t know, you guys. I’ve been going through my comments from the entire lifetime of my blog, and I’m getting so nostalgic for my posts of yore. Life was so much simpler then, you know? I used to tackle some really important topics. Like whether or not there was a prostitution ring going on…

It’s Friggin’ Fall Ya’ll

It’s friggin’ fall ya’ll. Ghords and pumpkins and apple bobbing showing up in my Facebook newsfeed. A trip to the pumpkin patch is on my calendar, and there would definitely be cobbler baking in my oven if it weren’t still a million goddamned degrees outside. Pillsbury has like seven new cake flavors out, including candy…

I Went Camping And Survived

Okay, so let’s start this off by saying that to call what I did “camping” is a bit of a stretch. Four nights were in a hooked up RV with running water, air conditioning, and electricity; in an RV park with free Wifi by the beach. Two nights were in a hotel. Regardless of those…
