Why do they do this to me? I have such a love/hate relationship with Amazon. This offer arrived in my email this morning. This book has three Tomie stories, two of which I already own, and the third which I can only find used for 40 bucks. $16.86 seems like a deal to me for […]

If nothing else, this blog is a place for me to vent. The good and bragging about my kids and husband as well as the negative. Lately is seems super negative, but it’s been a really long week. My dislike for Goose’s teacher is going up and up. Yesterday, she wrote a note home reminding […]

I’m the person who has always loved talking on the phone. You hear people say how they hate the phone all the time. Not me. I loved it. I could make any boyfriend stay on the phone with me for hours despite how much guys hate to talk. Even after kids, I could still talk […]

Look what I found on Target’s dollar aisle! My mood drastically improved after these purchases, just a dollar each. I have no clue what I’m going to do with two Snoopy bags, but I am sure I’ll come up with something.

It’s interesting the things that you loved from your childhood. From your favorite dishes to a certain item around the house that you try to tactfully ask your parents to leave to you rather than your brother. Me, I’m not known for tact when it comes to asking for stuff at all. I always figure […]

Is tailgating really part of the job? As I was sitting in mass with “No David”, it was hard not to be bitter. We could have gone to mass last night as a family, but there were “too many good games to watch.” Lance couldn’t go this morning because he would miss the tailgate. (Of […]

I LOVED last week’s episode of Mad Men. Love Don. Love Peggy. Love them together. As best friends. Loved when she told him off and when he yelled right back at her. Lance thinks Don might be emerging from the hell hole he’s been in all season, but I think he can still fall further. […]

Need some cheap shelving. Go to IKEA. Need a cheap couch. IKEA. Want to decorate your home every three years, go to IKEA. Everything at IKEA is super cheap. Everyone knows this. So why is it that I go there and find the one item that is going to cost me $900? And we STILL […]

HEB does this to me every time. I used to give Lance shit about coming home with a new dressing, marinade or sauce that we would never use. Now that I have taken over most of the grocery shopping, I am the guilty one. Last night he showed me everything I have purchased in the […]

Don’t you hate when people upload all their photos from an event, including the really sucky ones of you and then tag you? Thankfully, that hasn’t happened to me in a long time, but I was just FB stalking and saw the worst pictures of people and all I could think was that these people […]
