Oh the perspective a lunch date with a dead cow can give…

  I'm in Texas, and if there is one thing I have learned in my four days here, it's that the Texans like their meats. We don't eat meat very often in California. That's not entirely true, I serve a very meat-and-potatoes-with-vegetables kind of menu for most dinners; but we aren't talking Texas meat.

After Today, Someone Needs To Nominate Me For Mother of the Year

That's a literary device we in the professional writing world call: sarcasm. Look it up, you will find it to be a delicious way to poke fun at others. Or (in this case) yourself. Myself. A delicious way to poke fun at me. I'm starting to really wrack up the resume of Bad Mom days.… Continue reading After Today, Someone Needs To Nominate Me For Mother of the Year

So I haven’t technically worn a bra since October…

Ah, where to begin... We went to Disneyland in October. I really hate Disneyland, and what I hate the most is that I have to wear regular clothing for a really long time.

I baked the cake; and ended up baking two cakes (one for the adults, one for the kids). These… Continue reading Trials and Tribulations of My Trailer Trash Mom’s Family

Does Dad Ever Know Best?

  Short answer: no. Long answer: sometimes. Before you dads out there get all your tails wadded up inside your assholes over how much I'm emasculating you, let me be clear: there are some things that dad does know best on, although it's the long answer and I'm not sure you want me to ramble… Continue reading Does Dad Ever Know Best?

Party Peeves

We went to a couple family parties this weekend. One was a Labor Day bar-b-que - which was relatively mild; the other was a family dinner in honor of the seventh birthday of my cousin's kid. These parties (the latter for the most part) inspired me to compile yet another list of pet peeves. Today… Continue reading Party Peeves
