It’s Mid-January and Homemade Thin Mints Will Save Us

Listen, I love a good Girl Scout cookie like the rest of you but I don't have the patience to wait until February. I also know no one locally who sells Girl Scout cookies any more except for the kids that camp out at the local grocery store, so I needed a thin mint recipe… Continue reading It’s Mid-January and Homemade Thin Mints Will Save Us

The World’s Most Boring Book (In Paperback by Fall 2020)

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I found a couple of unpublished posts from my old Blogger account and wanted to share them here because they had never seen the light of day.  The interesting thing here is the date in the title, fall of 2020. I originally wrote this in 2016 and even… Continue reading The World’s Most Boring Book (In Paperback by Fall 2020)

It’s The End of the Decade? Sounds Like an R.E.M. Song to Me

I had no idea that January 1st marked a brand new decade until three weeks ago and only because I read it on a friend's blog and was like, well shit.  Although, according to my friend up there, "well, some will argue that the decade doesn’t officially end until December 31, 2020, because there was… Continue reading It’s The End of the Decade?

“Merry Christmas, Shitter’s Full”

Disclaimer #1- this post will be filled with bathroom humor and swear words. If you don't like that sort of thing, read The Pioneer Woman or something. I tried to think of a better title for a post filled with nonsensical and fun Christmas anecdotes but I honestly couldn't think of anything more fitting. I… Continue reading “Merry Christmas, Shitter’s Full”

Vite it, Sto mangiando Tater Tots- Parte Otto (Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots- Part Eight)

This month's post is partially in Italian to honor the tradition of my Dad's "famous" Christmas Eve meatballs that go along with our annual Christmas Eve spaghetti dinner. I asked my dad to tell me again the story of how the Christmas Eve spaghetti and meatballs began and here it is somewhat paraphrased: My Dad's… Continue reading Vite it, Sto mangiando Tater Tots- Parte Otto (Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots- Part Eight)

Why I Can’t Have Nice Things- Bathroom Floors Edition

It all started back in 2012 when I was tired of looking at this:     AND this:     The above is a kid's bathroom for two girls, ages 12 and 4 at the time (SOB). But it was ugly and I wanted a prettier bathroom for the girls and because of that, we… Continue reading Why I Can’t Have Nice Things- Bathroom Floors Edition

Nobody Puts Gravy in a Corner- I Didn’t Make That Up

I needed to add that to the title because it's a good one but it's not something I came up with. It's a play on a Dirty Dancing line and no, I won't elaborate because if you've never watched Dirty Dancing, I don't know that you can read my blog anymore. I did google "nobody… Continue reading Nobody Puts Gravy in a Corner- I Didn’t Make That Up
