Youth Basketball Mom

“MOM…. Where’s my uniform?” “MOM…. What time is my game?’ “MOM… We can’t be late or else our team gets an automatic foul.” “MOM… Who else is coming to watch me play today?” “MOM…. Can you help me find my lucky water bottle?” “MOM…. I think my sports goggles need to be tightened.” “MOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM” Hey … Continued

Unpolished Potpourri

Typically, my head spins a million miles an hour in a million different directions.  Most of the time I’m able to extrapolate a single thought from my cluster fuck of a brain and write a cohesive post on that specific topic. Today is not one of those days. Today, my cluster fucked brain is doubly … Continued

National Unpolished Day

National Siblings Day.  That’s a thing?  National High Five Day.  That’s a thing?  National Short Girl Appreciation Day.  National Happy Husband Appreciation Day.  National Attorneys Day???  Those are real things?  What?  Those are all real named holiday-esque dates on the calendar to be acknowledged?  Since when?

Ding Dong This Bitch Ain't Dead

Nope, I’m not dead; but thanks so much for the concern! Some of the messages I’ve recently received have been nothing short of unpolished: “Is the blog dead?” “No blog for two weeks…Nirvana.” “You ever comin’ back?” “I miss you…. Not!” “When’s the next blog?”  “Haven’t heard from you in a while…Have you lost your … Continued

The Eleventh Year: In Like A Lion And Out Like A Lamb

Some say March is the month that comes IN LIKE A LION, OUT LIKE A LAMB.  I’m taking that expression and applying it one step further.  I’m applying it to the eleventh year; the eleventh year of marriage that is. For someone who doesn’t know shit from Shinola, I actually think it’s a pretty good analogy. … Continued

My Blog. Therefore, My Rules.

JUST TO LET YOU KNOW… If you hadn’t already figured it out, I’m the only one in charge of this blog.  I’m the one in charge because it’s my blog, which means we play by my rules.   As far as the rules go, it’s simple.  The rules are that I’m the one who decides … Continued

OSCARS 2015 Highlights & Lowlights

Last night I barely made it through all three and a half hours (plus the Red Carpet Pre-Show) of the 2015 Academy Awards. To say I was slightly underwhelmed would be an understatement but I had already committed to live tweeting my thoughts on who’s wearing what, who’s winning, who’s losing and of course, who’s … Continued
