A few days ago, I posted a picture of the interior of a fridge to my IG/FB stories with the caption, “My fridge.” It was not, in fact, dear readers, my fridge. It was what I pray was a joke from some influencer, but I was shocked by how many people who at least kind … Continue reading I am insulted.
Last year, I did a best/worst of 2021, but as I’m always evolving (high five, me!), this time I’m gonna Facts of Life it and call it the good and the bad, because according to Tootie, Jo and co, that’s what makes up (the facts of) life. Plus, who’s to say what is the BEST … Continue reading Let’s Facts of Life This Thing
I was going to say, “Happy Festivus!” but Festivus isn’t about happiness, is it? It’s about airing your mofo grievances and that’s something better than happy. It’s restorative and cleansing and yes, cathartic. Festivus is as important a holiday tradition to me as hiding my children’s Christmas gifts in places I won’t find them until … Continue reading Cathartic Festivus!
There are two kinds of people in this world: people who look forward to their Spotify Wrapped and parents. Kids absolutely destroy any chance you have of a moderately respectable end of year wrap up.

Is there an unofficial rule that one’s gratitude list gets posted later every year? Well, the beauty of unofficial rules is that since there’s no official body of approval, we can make them whatever we want! So, new unofficial rule: Thanksgiving is a loosely designed gratitude time period that lasts as long as want it … Continue reading The Sixth Annual Gratitude List
I often tell people that our family is Covid-cautious, but what we really are is Covid-paranoid. Between Matty’s health stuff and my worst fear of losing my sense of smell/taste (can you imagine not smelling cheese?), we just really didn’t want to risk it. So, we wear masks all the damn time, we do Instacart … Continue reading What I Did on My Covidcation
As we have discussed, cleaning is not my strong suit. Given that my house is literally never guest-ready unless we’ve *just* had a professional plus four novices clean it for upwards of 7 hours, you’re probably asking why you would accept any cleaning advice from me. Well, I’ll tell you. Just in the same way … Continue reading Spring Cleaning DO’s and DON’T’s
Dear People Driving on I-89 S on Sep. 7th, 2021 around 12:30 pm, I realize you’re a select bunch and that this letter is long overdue. I want to address something you may have seen and assure you that there’s a very reasonable explanation. Back in September of last year, our family had been fortunate … Continue reading Dear People Driving on I-89 S on Sep. 7th, 2021 around 12:30 pm
Guys, of course it’s an honor to be the mayor of this highly esteemed city. It’s just, as you may have gathered from the name, not the most organized place. Case in point: I started writing this post in September of 2021. I assure you, things have not gotten better since then. Heavy is the … Continue reading My Responsibilities as the Mayor of Hot Mess City
2021 was pretty much the worst of times. Let’s be honest; anyone who would call it the “best of times,” is being a dillhole. But, I wanted to do a year end round up (what? we’re still within the January grace period), and in the interest of not being a total Debbie Downer, I’m gonna … Continue reading Let’s Not Tale-of-Two-Cities This
