So, I like to consider myself kind of a feminist. Not like the kind that wears vagina costumes to a parade, but the kind that thinks women are fully capable of more than we, or anyone else, gives us credit for. I'm all for women taking care of themselves and not relying on anybody else … Continue reading Feminist-ish
Sunday is Father's Day. It is a day that we recognize the men that have raised us, disciplined us, loved us and have shown us how to be better people. But this isn't always our dads. I was fortunate enough to grow up with a father that showed me these things since the day I … Continue reading Being a dad isn’t blood, it’s heart…
So over the last month I have had 2 random allergic reactions. I have gone my entire life and never been allergic to anything. I do suffer from outdoor allergies, but living in Texas I feel like that is pretty common. Other than the outdoor stuff I don't have any other allergies. I do hear … Continue reading Allergic to work… Literally
Well... I've decided to do it! I've decided to put my big girl panties on and go back to school!! It's been many, many years since I've tried my hand at being a student, but I'm ready for it... I think. Life always gets in the way. I know it's an excuse, but it's true! … Continue reading Mama is going back to school
So today I dropped my daughter off at cheer camp.... and I cried... like a baby! Of course I waited until I walked away (she was already embarrassed because I was THAT mom taking pictures of everything) but I couldn't help it! Once I got in the car the waterworks started. I wasn't even sure … Continue reading Baby steps to big girl steps
One of my favorite things about working a second job in the evenings is the fact that my daughter and my boyfriend get to spend quality time together. Sometimes it's him being a chauffeur to her and her friends. Occasionally, it's them running errands to Lowe's or Home Depot (I think those are her least … Continue reading When mom is away… deals will be made!
Given the title of this post, you can imagine how Day 1 went of our chores situation.... I pick my lovely child up from school yesterday and she's already had one of those days. I can see it in her face that's she's in a mood. She's in that part of her life where everything … Continue reading UPDATE: Who needs Riverdale Con tickets???
I've never been one for dramatic tv's shows. My preferences are Friends, The Office, Parks and Rec and How I Met Your Mother. My daughter, on the other hand, loves drama tv. Her favorite show right now is, of course, Riverdale. I've honestly never watched one episode. I know that Zach or Cody (from the … Continue reading Riverdale Cleaning Convention
Let me preface this whole thing by saying I am not a cook. I am not good at it nor do I really enjoy it. I think I may be recipe reading illiterate. I have no patience to sit and wait for things to be done. Most likely I am cooking because I am hungry … Continue reading A for Effort, F for Failure
The last couple of weeks have been rough. With working extra hours, my daughter having so many events throughout the week, parent meetings and her social life (definitely not mine) I feel like I've been running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. I can't seem to catch up on laundry. Even when … Continue reading I’m not talented but I love music.
