Phoenix – Not Arizona, More Like in Harry Potter, and Also Not the Glen Campbell Song

So much time has passed that I don’t expect more than crickets…but before I start bombarding you with posts writing once in a blue moon, I thought I’d check in. You may recall that I cried “abandon blog!” almost 3 years ago (actually, it was more like a slowly leaking row-boat). Frankly, I had lost […]

The Best Classic Horror Movies For Older Kids!

Our family has a Saturday night tradition. Super Sci-Fi Saturday night, on MeTV. And the best part is, it culminates at 9pm CST with The Son of Svengoolie! We love Svengoolie. His perfect blend of horror and comedy make watching these classic horror films a blast. I am so happy Isaiah is 10 now, it’s the […]

Next Year I’m Going to Be on the Christmas Card

It has been three years since we have had a family picture on our Christmas card. It’s cool, no one minds because the kid is quite amazing. But the reality is I can’t stand to see myself in a photograph. Luckily you’re not one of my friends I’m having coffee with because I really don’t […]

Best Christmas Movies For Kids – Old School

  When I was 7, I remember sitting on the sofa, vibrating with excitement, as I waited for Frosty the Snowman to come on television.  The highlight of the month of December for me was the Rankin/Bass Christmas Specials. The grown-ups had It’s A Wonderful Life, White Christmas and Miracle on 34th Street, but we had […]

I just can’t read one more stinking page! Best Books of 2014

Phew…. at least I got that off my chest. Once upon a time – before kid – before marriage – before my eyes were opened to the reality of other people needing me. Ugh. I used to devour one “meaningful” book after another. My brain knew no bounds, I just sucked it all in, and even […]

I Get Free Chocolate but What You Can Get is SO Much Better!

Sometimes I forget how lucky I am. I get bogged down by the day-to-day, and forget. Forget that some people never get a chance to live their dreams. Thanks to my friend Melissa from Home on Deranged, who shares my same cuckooness and weirdo sense of humor, I got to be part of an amazing […]

Twisted MixTape – Hold It Up To The Light

Sometimes a song speaks to you. To your innermost workings and seems to know exactly how you are feeling and what you are going through. Sometimes a song captures absurdity and hilarity so well you can listen to it anytime and be in a good mood. Sometimes a song’s lyrics can just be so odd, […]

Twisted MixTape #41 – My Husband’s iPod Scares Me

One of my least favorite things is going into my husband’s office. It is a freaking mess in there, but even more so he listens to…..pop music (she says with a whisper, cagey eyes looking to the side).  My husband is so much more open-minded than I am. He’ll mix up Cat Stevens and Daft […]

Weekly Recap – The No Clean Pants Rendition

It’s 90 degrees outside today and I have no clean pants. I am wearing sweatpants, you know, the thick kind that keep you nice and BOILING ON A HOT SUMMER DAY? Yeah that kind. I also realized yesterday that my favorite yoga pants have a hole in the crotch. I’m washing them anyway, but I […]
