Stay-at-Home-Mom Sick is a Special Kind of Misery

I woke up sick today. I had a bit of a runny nose yesterday that developed into a full blown case of "the snotties" as my son would call it. It snuck up on me in the middle of the night and really came on strong. My head hurts. My eyes feel hot and watery. … Continue reading Stay-at-Home-Mom Sick is a Special Kind of Misery

My Snotty Valentine

I was sick this year for Valentine's Day. I'm still sick actually, and just hoping it's not the killer flu because I'm one of those people who hate going to the doctor and will probably have "No really, I think it's going away" on my tombstone. Because I'm a snotty miserable mess, we cancelled our … Continue reading My Snotty Valentine

Finding My Peace Through Silence

Maybe it's an Only Child thing. Or maybe it's a writer thing. It could be just an introvert thing. Whatever it is, I need my silence.

I've given up trying to … Continue reading Living by a new set of rules

Once we entered this activity- enhanced phase and I found myself running down the street, chasing through store aisles, crawling around playgrounds, navigating the grocery store with a child/monkey climbing me...these … Continue reading Drinking Wine and Blogging in My Activewear

The Mommy Blog Identity

It used to bug the crap out of me when I’d see “mom” in someone's bio. True story. I was like, I see you’re a mom, I feel that’s one of those things you don’t really have to tell me. The entire “Mommy Blog” trend annoyed me. I thought separating them into their own category … Continue reading The Mommy Blog Identity

Diary of SAHM – Day 120

Ok, to be honest, I don’t exactly know what day it is. I started in November so I just averaged the months together. If you are doing this too, you understand I’m short on time! Time is this amazing valuable commodity I can’t seem to get enough of. In fact, that’s the only present I … Continue reading Diary of SAHM – Day 120
