The other day I realized it was nearly Thanksgiving. No, not because Walmart suddenly changed their Halloween decor to Christmas. (Side note: Is Thanksgiving the forgotten holiday or what? I mean, seriously, we go from haunted houses to snowmen with no thought to the pilgrims. I’d be sad, but the truth is, I like the [...]

I hope all of you have a great Halloween. This is one of my favorite holidays and I usually decorate inside and out. Sadly, as the parent of a teenager, I no longer have pictures of cute kids in pirate costumes, ready to go out trick or treating. Instead I get a surly teenager who [...]

Before I tell you today’s tale of woe, you should know one thing: I do not do blood. In all honesty, I’m not good around emergencies of any kind.  Ever. At all. Even my son, my only child knows that if he’s cut himself, he should find the band-aids on his own, because his mother [...]

Kirby is my dog. And for the last few years, she has written my holiday blog for my newspaper column (my editor even changes the name of the column from “A Mom’s Life” to “A Dog’s Life” cuz we’re kinda cutesy that way). This year, Kirby wrote a letter to Santa Happy Holidays, [...]

Flashback Friday: Before No-no Lulu, Kirby ruled

This Flashback Friday is from a few years ago, when Kirby was the only dog on Santa’s naughty list. Now, of course, we have added No-no Lulu, so Kirby looks like a freaking angel in comparison – MM
Because I am completely insane, I went and did something stupid. I allowed Junior to get a dog. [...]

Yes, we have a dog on a diet

filed in dogs from hell

It’s a sad day in the Sontag house. I have had to put our dog, Kirby, on a diet.
Look, I didn’t want to do this. But I’ve been driven to it. You see, like me, Kirby’s weight fluctuates. And by fluctuate, I mean her weight goes up and hardly ever goes down. Now I know [...]
