No Circus for Me

Today I had to explain to my children why we couldn’t go to the circus this year. I t wasn’t the money – we probably could have scored free tickets. It wasn’t that we had other plans that day. It was because their parents don’t like the way the circus treats their animals. I feel […]

Desert My Eye

Ever since I was a young child I have been under the impression that the desert was a dry place. A place where people had to use a lot of lotion and make sure that they were drinking enough water. I don’t have the research in front of me, but I believe that you have […]

My Blog Pet Peeve

There are a lot of things that piss me off. I am a fairly unreasonable human being. I’m not kidding, you can ask my husband, my mom or any poor sucker that has gotten stuck listening to me rant and rave about how much I hate Kurt Warner this week. Whatever. I am off topic […]

I Did It

10 minutes. In and out. It isn’t the greatest picture but things were moving pretty fast. Go vote. It might just be easier than you think.

Please Don’t Vote

I know everybody is saying that you should go vote tomorrow but I don’t want you to. Here are three reasons. 1) If you don’t vote, my vote counts more. 2) If you don’t vote I won’t have to stand in line all day long. This is especially important if you live in my neighborhood. […]

I Tried

On Monday I went to do my duty as an American. I was going to vote early. But alas, the place was packed. They said there was an hour and a half wait. And I had the twins with me. And they needed a nap. It looks like I’ll be taking them to vote again […]

Today on Today

How great is it to turn on The Today Show* and see your friends on there? Kristen, Jill, Mir and Heather all did great jobs. I enjoyed the segment even if Kathie Lee Gifford is pretty much a tool and obviously hasn’t spent much time reading blogs. Did she actually say she was afraid of […]

Is Nike Saying What I Think it is Saying?

I’ve been sitting on this one for a while, because I wasn’t sure if 1) the subject matter was appropriate for my blog or 2) that any of you would care or know what I was talking about. Anyway, you know that Nike ad? That one where the guy says “My Better is Better Than […]

I Never Thought I Would Say This

I am sick to death of Brad Pitt. I think it is lovely that he is trying to rebuild New Orleans. I think it is fantastic he is trying to adopt the entire third world. I think he is a really good actor.I think he is super hot. That being said – I’m sick of […]

Customer Service is Dead in the Airline Industry

I posted this a while back on DC Metro Moms Blog but since I am still mad at Spirit Airlines I thought I would publish it here too. I mean, it is either this, or I can tell you the story about how Ian barfed in my hand (again) yesterday. ____ Dear Spirit Airlines, I […]

On the Dollar Store

I’m driving the kids to beach this week and I went to the dollar store to try to find them some toys for the beach and some crap to keep them occupied on the five or six hour drive. Believe it or not, I went to three dollar stores on Friday, thus tripling the amount […]

Not to Be Overly Political

I’m not trying to make this a political blog, but I read something in The Washington Post yesterday that made me angry. First the back story: My neighbor that I really like (the one who I told about BlogHer) knew that I went going to a blogging convention in Chicago and so she was excited […]
