Every year we cause ourselves an abundance of anxiety and shame in setting “resolutions”. Here’s the thing, it’s a new year, but I’m in my 30’s, you’re not getting a new me. Take me or leave me, it doesn’t matter. This year I’m still my fabulous hot mess self. So here’s my list of realistic goals for 2019... Continue reading →
How are you? I’m fine. I’m sorry it’s been so long since I wrote last. I’ve been very busy (and I’m sure you have too!)
Santa, my kids write you every year, and every year their eyes light up with delight on Christmas morning as they rush in to see what you’ve left for them.

This meal also makes amazing left overs that reheat like a dream. Continue reading →
Preparing for the holidays can be a daunting task. Especially, when you grinding the hell out of some coffee, sporting the latest bedhead hairstyles, you can barely grab a shower, and the time in between toting your precious cargo around helping the rug rats with their homework, while attempting to get household chores complete, is nearly a joke Continue reading →
Let me start by saying, chemotherapy sucks, plain and simple. Besides hopefully saving a cancer patient’s life, Chemotherapy might also deplete quality of life. Treatments afford a person many sacrifices and compromises. Time is precious and valuable. We are all racing against the clock, as we are all terminal. Chemotherapy is both against the clock and for the clock... Continue reading →
Why Moms should celebrate “Back to School Day”?
"I get it now!
After dedicating seventy-three days straight and a few hours to my little bundles of joy, I could FINALLY understand why. I will let my shameful group text serve as proof." Continue reading →
