Life Lesson: The DUMBEST Argument EVER!

I think it’s well established that I’m a little um particular about things. . . Ok. . . You got me.  I’m a type-A, control freak. . . And I’d probably be a perfectionist too if I weren’t so damned lazy.  . . Anyway, I am.  I just am.  This is what I do.  . . And I like to

Making Myself A Priority

I have a problem. Actually, I have a husband, two kids, three cats, one dog, and a constantly filthy house. . . So I have a LOT of problems. Yes, they are wonderful problems. . .and I wouldn’t change my life. . . EXCEPT I’d probably endeavor to shower more than 3 times a week.  And I’d probably go to

Is It Swollen? No, But It WAS Nearly Fatal. . .

I HATE the fact that it gets dark at 5PM. Why do we still move the clocks back?  Can’t we just do away with the whole antiquated practice? It’s been torturing mothers everywhere for years. I’ve heard a lot of mothers complain about how it messes with the routine.  Yet, during the past few years, I never really noticed too

Reluctant Mother v Husband’s Cell Phone

I’m back.  I hope.  I don’t like taking breaks from blogging.  I find it’s very difficult to get back in the habit of routine posting after I’ve been away awhile.  Hopefully, the schedule will be more normal this week and you’ll get your full share of regularly scheduled snark.  Hopefully. . . Today is my Husband’s birthday.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Chris!

I Have Officially Turned Into My Grandmother

Anyway, if you recall, this all started because I wasn’t sure where I was going to put another kid. The good news is I devised a plan that I think will be very workable for us

What Husband SAID v What Reluctant Mother was Supposed to ACTUALLY HEAR

Have I mentioned how kind, patient, and thoughtful my Husband is? Have I mentioned to you he ceases to be any of those things if there is the slightest thing wrong with his stomach? Yep. Hungry, queasy, or grumbly. . .it doesn’t matter.  The results are always the same:  He’s a MONSTER!  A MONSTER!!! To make matters worse, I have

Because I SAID SO!!

Tonight my Husband cut me off. I know you’re all thinking he cut me off from the rum and how smart that was of him. . .but you’re WRONG SUCKAS’! He cut me off mid-sentence. Chris asked a simple question:  He asked if dog should come upstairs to bed with him as he was going to bed before me and

Reluctant Mother’s Culinary Give-A-Damn Has Apparently Left The Building

I don’t mind cooking but I’ve never LOVED it.  Over the years, I’ve become an acceptable cook.  However, if I’m rushed or busy, cooking is one thing that I’m willing to rapidly drop way down on my priority list. What parent isn’t hurried and busy? Couple this normally occurring chaos with an interesting fall bird migration heating up in our
