As moms across the world finish up celebrating their ONE sacred day of the year, I was inspired to blog about the 'dark' times that not only flex our true mommy muscles, but often outweigh the fond memories! In all honesty, it is these memories that actually provide laughter for years to come - both … Continue reading Madder Than A Wet Hen!
A Little Ways To Yonder
I am so excited to guest feature a fellow Appalachian Blogger and friend, Kim Stalcup. We grew up together and both love using our Appalachian culture to entertain our readers, while feeding our love of writing. Kim, who stands on the need for cornbread at every meal, is the 8th generation of her family that … Continue reading A Little Ways To Yonder
Get ‘Er Done!
The 'goal' of parenthood is to keep a steady pattern of strong vitals. The 'plan' has changed numerous times, over the course of history. Some super moms just keep it together and continually one-up themselves, only to be unfollowed or unfriended in our vast social networks. Or at least fuel the fodder in the social … Continue reading Get ‘Er Done!
God Doesn’t Break The Molds..
Those of us with more than one child have no doubt that the heavens spoke loudly in the form of our last child. In fact, it's probably God's way of population control. I mean....how many times have we admitted that if "he was our first, he would have been our last." Not that easy could … Continue reading God Doesn’t Break The Molds..
Summer Is Just Another Fresh Hell!
OK...so I haven't even looked at my blog in months....even forgot the web address. I decided to delve back in and saw several posts that apparently, I was too lazy to post. Here is one! Some may mark the beginning of Summer with the completion of testing or school or even the hotter temperatures and … Continue reading Summer Is Just Another Fresh Hell!
Around Here Normal is Just a Setting on the Dryer.
After spending over a decade in law enforcement, victim services and social work, we circled the wagons and brought our kids home from public school. Now, we are on year five. After the first years, we learned to lay to rest all of those good intentions of facilitating unrealistic goals of growth, having tri-lingual kids, and … Continue reading Around Here Normal is Just a Setting on the Dryer.
Worn Slap Out!
Well, our clan has just completed our annual vacation and so we are absolutely worn slap out. All of us....however, the energy exerted on these annual vacations is not equally divvied up and therefore, the whining shouldn't be either. Since my bunch doesn't care what I have to say, I am putting it out there … Continue reading Worn Slap Out!
If Everything Is Coming Your Way, Then You Are In The Wrong Lane!
It's that time, once again, which we all sit down with pen and paper to set forth unrealistic goals for the coming year. With the best of intentions, we proclaim that we will become the person that we have very little chance at actually becoming. We share our goals within our circle, so that … Continue reading If Everything Is Coming Your Way, Then You Are In The Wrong Lane!
Thoughts of this Deranged Mom at Christmas!
My thoughts for the Christmas season: To celebrate my hubby's payday, we bought the good trash bags and a box of wine. I wish I had the money to buy wrapping paper to wrap them. Good gingerbread houses are one of the things required by Facebook to remain in the good parenting network. Good gingerbread … Continue reading Thoughts of this Deranged Mom at Christmas!
A Burr In My Saddle!
So there are lots and lots....and lots of things that piss me off. The biggest one centers around being Middle-Class. So, in order to allow me to vent...in depth....I have decided to focus a series of blog posts on "Middle-Class Misconceptions" and what I think about those that believe them. First.....and perhaps the biggest misconception that … Continue reading A Burr In My Saddle!
