Anti-Black Thursday

Why in the hell is this even a thing? Consumers should be so stuffed with turkey, triptophan and pie that they can’t possibly get their asses off the couch, leave their family and football to support these ridiculous stores who are demanding their employees give up their own holiday plans so shoppers can save $13...

Who IS This Good King Wenceslas Anyway?

I wrote this right before I got Scott’s email with his Christmas carol rant. He wants to hear more religious songs around the holiday, and since I hear about it annually, it was time to share what I get an earful of. I apologize for the late timing of this blog. I was going to... Read more »

Sounds of the Season

Last week, I asked my husband Scott to write a paragraph for my blog about the worst Christmas songs. Well, this is what I got back this week, literally the moment I saved the blog I wrote for today. His put mine to shame, so ladies and gents, you’ve read them, you love them-without any further ado, a... Read more »

The Worst Christmas Carols Ever!

I love Christmas Carols, as the music can just be amazing. When songs evoke memories of childhood, loved ones or Chritsmasses past- that’s some powerful stuff. I love that carols can be religious or secular, serious or whimsical, but also, they can totally suck. Especially when it’s a treasured song being sung horribly- that pisses me off (like when The Jonas Brothers (gag) mutilate...

'Tis the Season To Be Jolly

Well, ’tis, ’tisn’t it? Last year, I didn’t really enjoy the whole holiday season. I don’t fully know why. The holidays are not an easy time for many people for myriad reasons. Personally, I was annoyed with the weather- we had tornado sirens going off the on the 1st (c’mon!), then it snowed, got frigid out, snowed and then,... Read more »

Happy Easter!

Growing up in Puerto Rico, there were certain things about the United States that truly fascinated me. American high schools, for example…how I longed to walk those clean, giant halls and visit a real school cafeteria (although I never really had a desire to actually EAT the cafeteria food). I wanted to go to a... Read more »

A Whale of a Trip - Part 3

Of all the parks we were scheduled to visit during out trip to Florida, I was most looking forward to Animal Kingdom. Dylan loves animals, and the combination of both animals and Disney characters seemed perfect for our little guy. We tried to get him excited about the theme park telling him he would see...

A Whale of a Trip - Part 2

Quality time with Abuelito
As you might remember from last week’s post, we spent our first day in Florida just hanging out at my parent’s timeshare in the hopes that Dylan would be rested enough to tackle Magic Kingdom the following day. Well, he wasn’t. And he let us know it all day long. We do have to take... Read more »

A Whale of a Trip - Part 1

When my parents mentioned last summer that they were planning a family trip to Disney World during the holidays, Bill and I immediately told them we would not be joining them in Florida. There were many reasons for us not to go. The expense was number one, of course. We also thought that, at 3,... Read more »

And to all a good night!

I hope everyone out there had a wonderful Christmas and that Santa Claus brought you everything your heart desired! As you might remember, on my last post a few weeks ago I wrote about Dylan’s aversion to presents and how I was terrified of his reaction on Christmas morning when he saw all those presents...
