It’s not writer’s block. No, it’s definitely not writer’s block, because I’ve been able to write. It’s blogger’s block. And it’s been happening since the inauguration of our 45th President. For some of you out there, the inauguration was a normal, every-four-years kind of event. For some of you, perhaps it was even a non-event. […]

My neighbor is having a tree taken down. She’s lobbied the county for years to have it cut and apparently today is the day. Which is fantastic for her, but a pain the behind for me. Because the bane of working from home when you live where I do is the constant barrage of noise […]

  Maybe you tinkle when you sneeze, or leak when you giggle. You know you should do something about it, but you’re not sure where to start. Did this post resonate with you? You are not alone! Urinary incontinence, while definitely not normal, is quite common and getting more and more prevalent. But don’t hide […]

One of the most fun things about living next to a college campus is being able to relive the milestones of my own college experience every year. There’s move-in in the fall, commencement in the spring, Greek recruitment in January and the inevitable crush of prospective student tours the entire second semester. And, starting in […]

There’s this cartoon making the rounds on Facebook. It’s got a man and a woman, and they’re walking down the street. She says, “My desire to be well-informed is currently at odds with my desire to remain sane.” It’s from The New Yorker and it was created by cartoonist David Sipress. And, it might be the […]

I was talking to some moms at the playground a few weeks ago. We all have rising second grade girls and we were saying how much we dreaded the onslaught of “girl drama.” Having been involved in a disproportionate share of “girl drama” in middle and high school – ohmygod, high school – this is a […]

Have you noticed, I’m not blogging as much as I used to blog? In June, Little A stopped napping. Mind you, she’s still waking up at night more nights than not and she takes anywhere from an hour to ninety minutes to go down at night. And, she’s waking at 5:15 a.m. ready to start […]

When my middle child was younger, I used to call her midday sleeps “napples.” You know, a little nibble of a nap? (We clearly do not beget sleepers in this house.) As the summer comes to a close and I am full-time 100% mommy over the next few weeks, my time to blog will be […]

Hey, you. The one ragging on women for wearing yoga pants when they can’t possibly be going to the gym? Can you just drop it already? I mean, do you take to social media to disparage surgeons for wearing scrubs? Or soldiers for wearing camo? Of course not, because the clothes that they wear to do […]

There is an Amazon affiliate link in here. It’s for my book and the FTC requires that I disclose it but it does make me laugh when it’s my book because I assume you know that I benefit when you buy my book. But, anyhow, there it is. Your full disclosure. And, I thank you […]
