Wordless Wednesday: Quick, someone call CSI - my house is about to become a crime scene!

Exhibit A: Thing One's bed after she left for school today...I think. Exhibit B: Thing Two's side of the room...oh, the humanity...where DOES the girl sleep? Exhibit C: Oh, no...et tu, Mini-me! Exhibit D: You think mens' bathrooms are messy...if you live with girls...you don't have to ask...then, you know! Exhibit E: No monsters hiding in this closet...there's just NO room! You're speechless, I know! Such horrors in a house that even the likes of Michael Meyers, Freddy Kruger and Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th) would be too frightened to enter...let alone, clean. CHOO-CHOO-CHOO...CHAH-CHAH-CHAH...Happy Halloween! Send help! [via: 5 Minutes... Read more →

Holy Hannah Montana, Batman: You've Just Been Ghosted

Alas, poor Jack...I knew him...um...well, seems he couldn't stand the heat and I don't believe I've ever had a pumpkin actually...you know...melt. Yes, I know, we probably carved him way too early and the bugs had a field day, feeding, mating and whatever bugs do inside of rotting vegetables! Still. "When are we getting another one?" Um...let...me...think. "Next year!" [eyes go wide] Honestly, I don't remember my parents ever spending as much time (as I do) preparing for a holiday (I know...Halloween isn't one, technically) except, maybe, like Christmas and even then, we were the last family to decorate, the...

Thursday Thirteen #3: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Rants

As most of you know, by now - especially, if you've recently had the pleasure of spending an outrageous amount of time waiting in an airport, WITH ME - I'm not a very good airline traveler. [burp] Excuse me, but attending BlogHer '07 was the first time I had boarded an airplane in 15 years and, thankfully, I was lucky enough to be seated next to a young couple (he was from Chicago and they were both moving back to her home, in Norway) who were kind enough to talk me up...through...and down the entire way. [I would link to... Read more →

Blog Day for The Mothers Act - Just DO it!

Have you heard about Blog Day for the Mothers Act? It's a part of the BlogHers Act and a global issue that BlogHers would like to see addressed during the 2008 American Presidential election. Today, I am proud to say that I support The Mothers Act and would like to tell you a little about what BlogHers (like me) are doing to help make a difference and do something good, for a change. I mean, really. In this day and age. I can't think of a reason why another mother should suffer from postpartum depression. It's real and it sucks... Read more →

iMom, hear me snore.

I arrived into Chicago, yesterday, and was immediately reminded of my time here during BlogHer '07 - it really did make a world of difference - attending the BlogHer conference in July was SUCH a big step, for me. I hadn't flown in 15 years and it was the first time I had ever traveled, without Garth (not his real name) and the kids. Those two reasons, alone, had me second-guessing myself nearly the entire trip - until, I met my roommates and I remembered that, you know, I am more than just someone's mom, or love goddess. [snicker] Sorry,... Read more →

Thursday Thirteen #2: 13 Ways To Deconstructing A Pumpkin

Every year, Garth (not his real name) and I look forward to that weekend in October - you know, when soccer games are finally over and Garth (not his real name) isn't working - and head over to our favorite pumpkin patch and spend the next 90 minutes choosing the perfect "Jack," oh...what fun it is to ride in a one horse...wait, that's not right. [takes deep breath] Sorry, after raising 4 kids and having grown used to missing all sorts of deadlines, I kind of started losing track of the holidays. So, without further adieu, 13 ways to de-constructing... Read more →
