Ready for Camp? Let Mabel’s Labels Help!

Summer holidays are quickly approaching and I only just figured out what we were going to do for camp and daycare for our daughter. With all of that scrambling around, figuring out dates for my own holidays, discussing travel arrangements with grandparents, and ensuring we had the summer covered I was happy to have finally organized…

You Want a Tattoo Where? How Netflix can Help open a Dialogue Between You and Your Kids

4 am is peak time in our house. It’s the time of the morning that our elderly cat starts the call of her people. It’s the time of morning that the fat cat begins to beg for attention and shoves her very large, unusual paws in my face. And 4 am is the time of…

The Asshole Escaped Again and I’m Pretty Sure I’m Deaf

I bet you can’t even imagine what I’m up to. The thrilling life I’m living. Waking up at 6am, showering, getting ready for work, downing a cup of coffee and singing in my loveliest voice for my child to wake up and join me. She likes that. Why do I even shower? I swear I…

Turning Down Food for the Gym… Am I Drunk?

So I went to the gym today. I pumped myself up (no pun intended… or was it?) all weekend and set a goal for myself to start. And you know what? I stuck to it. I even turned down a lunch invitation in order to fulfill my goal. And I love lunch. I live for…

At Home with House Box

Do you ever think to yourself, “gee, I would really like to try that product but I don’t want to buy the full size just in case I don’t like it.” Or, “hmm, I wonder how that works, smells, cleans, tastes, etc” I do, all the time, but because I have sworn on our hamster’s…

Because Siblings are the Worst

Siblings are the worst. My brother…

When Bipolar Sucks

Looking out into the rain and over the pools of water forming in the parking lot I try to claw myself out of the gray mass that’s slowly surrounding my brain. “I’m good.” I tell myself, over and over. Remember at Christmas when you had no energy? When you couldn’t get up to do anything?…

Is There Therapy for Hamsters?

I woke up brilliant the other morning. Bright eyed and bushy-tailed. I was going to be the fun mom! Throw caution to the wind! Not get upset when the cushions were pulled off of the couch and thrown across the room and into the kitchen because they were bombs and bombs need to be thrown away…

Welcome, Hamsty… you smelly shit

We’re nearing the end of March Break… one more day to go. Hang in there guys, we can do this. My cold has almost cleared up and my nose is shrinking down to normal human size, however, the shape may be changed forever leading me to put in a claim for plastic surgery… For all…
