Because Siblings are the Worst

Ahhh, family memories. The ones where we all sit around and reminisce about how aggressive and loud Leighann was. How she danced insistently for attention, sang in front of any mirror, and regularly pestered her younger brother just for shits. Well. I am here to clear this misinformation up. 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…

March Break Madness with Netflix

It’s March Break up in here! A week off of school with time for the child to roam free finding pockets of clean house to destroy. In order to combat the inevitable tornado, I planned outings and concerts, movies and play dates. I made sure our time was scheduled so that boredom was limited and…

Cold Medications, Broken Noses, and Hamsters

Fuller House! Get Ready!

Do you know what we aren’t doing right now? We aren’t watching Fuller House, that’s what. And not because I don’t want to. Nope. Because today’s the day. The first season of the Netflix Original, Fuller House is available to watch!! We were lucky enough to be able to watch this series prior to release…

Netflix is our Valentine

Today was Valentine’s Day celebrations at my daughters school. She dressed in white and red… excuse me, pink, because red is not her colour, and she skipped through the school with her bag, excited to give valentines to her classmates. After her day was done she burst through the door, dumped her valentines mail bag…

Ya’ll Ready for This? Year 3 #StreamTeam

By this time each year I’m usually just finishing up my last box of chocolates from Santa and promising myself I’ll start exercising tomorrow. Or the next day. I have every excuse in the book to not go on the treadmill, eat anything healthy, wear my running shoes, get off the couch, go outside, breathe…
