Happy Halloween!

Posted on October 31st, 2012

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 [...]

No, I can’t resist Halloween candy…

Posted on October 24th, 2012

I have had to hide the Halloween candy from myself. And yes, I am slightly ashamed to admit that.
Look, it’s not like I didn’t try to avoid buying Halloween candy until the very last minute. I did try that. But do you know how difficult it is to shop anywhere in October and not buy [...]

Facebook, coffee and status updates

Posted on October 18th, 2012

I’m very grumpy today. I think it might have to do with the fact that I have been having, deep, serious arguments with Bridezilla about the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Because, you see, I dropped some leftover mac and cheese on the floor today.
And I called over this dog:

Attack of my evil tomatoes

Posted on September 13th, 2012

My house has been overrun by tomatoes. I swear to you, they are everywhere. They are in the fridge. They are on the counter. They are in the freezer. It’s like a scene from that TV show “Hoarders” only instead of newspapers and clothes stacked up everywhere, we have tomatoes. Frankly, it’s terrifying. And the [...]
