Adventures in Man Land

Adventures in Man Land

Being the married single woman that I am at the moment, all things plumbing fall within my realm of responsibility.  So, Tuesday afternoon, I headed into traditional Man Land to buy a flapper.  No, I was not out buying an escort into role playing girls doing the Charleston.  I needed that little rubber piece in […]

Awkward moments & NaNoWriMo

Awkward moments & NaNoWriMo

NEVER fall asleep with Oxygen on your TV. Some people sleep walk, some people sleep eat.  I apparently sleep channel-surf.  When I fell asleep I was watching NBC and the end of Jimmy Fallon.  When I woke up, the Oxygen network was on and I was viewing a rather large array of,… um,… personal pleasure […]

Pumpkins & flowers

Pumpkins & flowers

Note to self,… A mug resembling a pumpkin may be cute, but may not be the easiest thing from which to drink the blood of life without dribbling. Yes, I learned that this morning. Fortunately, I managed to just dribble down the chin and not on the clothes! I bought an admittedly cheap mug at […]

What to do?

What to do?

How do you tell someone that you consider that a friend WITHOUT ruining the friendship, that you are feeling used? It seems that our definitions of “help” and “together” are totally different. I feel like all I’m being expected to do all the work, with very little assistance, with very little input. I don’t think […]

Telepathy, teenagers, & aging,… oh, my!

Telepathy, teenagers, & aging,… oh, my!

Wife Telepathy delayed? Soldier Daddy usually has very good Wife Telepathy, but it thoroughly failed him last night.  I got a panicked phone call from him last night, hours after his usual window of communication.  He was absolutely convinced that something was wrong, that I really needed him to call.  Not so.  Not a thing […]

The life and times of a tired Mama!

The life and times of a tired Mama!

Just so you know, 45 minutes of sleep is not recommended!  Holy crap, I am tired.  I want to go back to bed in the worst possible way, but I know that if I do, it will just lead to another night of me being bitch-slapped awake by Insomnia while Sleep stands there and cackles […]

Dive bombed,…!

Dive bombed,…!

Is it a bad omen? Is it a sign that things are not going to go well for me today when, as I am coming back inside after seeing the kids off to school, a crow dive bombs me and nearly poops in my coffee? I don’t know which would have been worse, a crow […]

Adventures in mothering boys,…!

Adventures in mothering boys,…!

There are some things, as a mother, that remain over my head and dealing with morning wood is one of them.  My little guy has recently discovered this phenomena and it is,… well,… awkward!  Not having the same plumbing, I am woefully unequipped to deal with said problem!  But it is hard NOT to notice, […]

My birthday boy!

My birthday boy!

Happy birthday, Ty-man! My baby is 6 years old today, although it definately doesn’t seem possible! I still remember the day I had him like it was yesterday. I was scheduled to be induced at 0600, so at 0530 I was at my girl Stacy’s front door with Scotty so he could stay with her […]
