As my oldest celebrated a birthday today, I took a trip down memory lane and tried to call to mind all of the different stages that we have survived to date. To this end, I began to zero in on the common denominators in an effort to hang on to as many memories as I … Continue reading Parenting: Same Shit, Different Year
Just ‘Cause A Chicken Has Wings, Don’t Mean It Can Fly!
Apparently, I’ve been behind the curve for years and somehow missed the true Pinterest as a flagship deal. Who woulda thought that Pinterest is where it’s at for Bloggers, as well as a slew of other entrepreneurs, instead of just a paradise for creative moms? Armed with this new knowledge, my next step was ensuring … Continue reading Just ‘Cause A Chicken Has Wings, Don’t Mean It Can Fly!

You Can’t Have Chicken Salad Without The Chicken Sh*t!
One of my previous employers used to always say..."You know that white stuff on top of chicken sh*t? It's still chicken sh*t."

It's not that I don't understand limiting and monitoring my … Continue reading You Can’t Have Chicken Salad Without The Chicken Sh*t!
The Seven Deadly Sins of the Parking Lot
I very much enjoy this new blog that I am following and wanted to share!

I assumed that I would lay dormant for a bit and then … Continue reading I Bit Off More Than I Can Chew
