Of Toddler Beds, Bacardi, and Other Assorted Bullshit

Here I am again feeling a tad lousy about my extended absence.  It’s been a little nutso in these parts.  Nothing particularly bad mind you.  In fact, everyone seems to be healthy and happy.  I’ve just done a terrible job getting myself focused.  . .

Friday Funny: PINTERVENTION

I fucking relapsed On Pinterest. I knew I had a problem when Mac was three months old and I was feeding him and simultaneously pinning from my iPhone. But I didn’t stop. I couldn’t stop.
