Blogging It Old School

Video may have killed the radio star, but it's those damned folks selling their Blu Rays that's totally messing with my blogging mojo, DAMNIT! [source: Shorpy.com] Look, I've been at this for more than half a decade (you like that, sounds way longer than 6 years, right?) but, if you think mommybloggers have it bad, just wait. Though, I long since ditched the term, made it a habit of adding links to my "parenting blog" and would much rather be called, "Her Royal Majesty" and "Supreme Blogging Goddess" or just "Elizabitch" -- whichever one works for you, I'm easy --...

Motherhood Should Come With a Set of Ear Plugs, Right?

YES, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY and I'd wear a dress, if only someone would tell me where the hell the rest of my body went, 'cause I seemed to have misplaced it, along with my reading glasses DAMNIT! Holy crap, but I can't believe it's Wednesday...already? I mean, wasn't it just Friday and weren't we all just thrilled about celebrating another 3-day weekend?[shakes head and blows bangs out of eyes] Except, those of us with sick kids at home...I mean...I guess my husband, Garth [not his real name] and I should be really happy we didn't have any plans for Memorial...

Thank A Soldier

Glen with his Uncle Bud (a.k.a. my twin brother Sgt. Kat) during deployment ceremonies in Trenton, NJ in 2004. This photo captures a very bittersweet moment for our family. For the other brothers, sons, daughters, sisters, wives, husbands, uncles, cousins and thousands of other soldiers who didn't make it home - THANK YOU!

Mom Bloggers, Old School Blogging, Memes and Zombie Chickens

Yes, it's that time of year -- what, is it almost BlogHer...again? -- all snarkiness aside, mostly, there's already been lots of drama, filling up my Twitter stream, enough to choke a chicken. Not that I ever would...choke a chicken, I mean...still, I think that this would be good time, as any, to bring back an old school blogging tradition. The dreaded blog meme. [pronounced "meem" like in the word "dream," for you young whippersnappers] It's sort of like a chain letter, only, less annoying - especially, if it says something nice about, you know, somebody else - and I...

Sew, What's Love Frickin' Got to Do With It, Anyway?

My oldest daughter had this really great idea. You see, she needed to come up with a sewing project for a benefit fashion show at the high school, "Barbie Through the Ages." What -- I didn't pick the name -- but, it was going to count as a HUGE part of her final grade, so, you know, what was I supposed to do? "What do you have to make?" Because, I do NOT sew, or help "make" anything, if it means having to use something other than hot glue gun, let alone...mechanical...with running parts and a very sharp object, that... Read more →

Blogging About Teens, Tweens: Walking Contradictions in the Term Mom Bloggers Unite!

I can't believe that Hopey's 7, going on the Go Go's! Last week, there was some backtalk at BlogHer on blogging about teens and, well, seeing as I happen to be raising 2 of them (teens, I mean) along with a couple of other kids, whose names and ages escape me at the moment, I thought...about DANGED time...because, it's not just me. My friends Jenn and Busy Mom were also speaking up and I, for one, am really sick (and tired) about how some folks (you know, the ones who think they know everything) believe moms with teenagers are just...
