I Love the C-Word

I asked my friend Kim who writes the blog,

Advice for married couples: Learn to apologize

I am a gifted apologizer. My ‘sorry bout that’ skills are refined and I’m quick to forgive others as well. Why? Well, because I have mad mistake making skills and I live with people who are equally imperfect – my husband in particular. And that’s why knowing how to own my shit and suck it... Read more »

Stop copying me: A kid phase/phrase that is a normal pain in the ass

My daughter and son have both gone through the “stop copying me” phase of life. Meh, who am I kidding – they are still a bit in it, as are their friends, AND IT BUGS THE HELL OUT OF ME! And I’m not talking about mimicking each other just to provoke and annoy. Nope. I’m... Read more »

Trying to raise big fish in a small pond

Unlike my own childhood, where vacations were a yearly thing, my children have been on only two vacations. We just returned from number two. Now don’t get me wrong, I didn’t grow up gallivanting off to the tropics or ski resorts. My mom and dad dragged us all over the United States in a station... Read more »

10K Training - A Truly Scary Story

Liars can fib about just about anything and everything, but they can’t be dishonest about whether or not they have actually trained for a run, especially in the light of day when they are at the actual starting line in the blistering hot sun, two seconds away from starting a race.

Moms Who Drink And Swear is gonna be trippy as balls
When I use the word stabby to describe my feelings, I’m not suggesting that I’m going to stab anything or that I even want to. I am merely using a word that carries a strong violent image, hoping to convey the intensity of the feeling I have about a person, place, thing, behavior, etc. STABBY!... Read more »

10 things I will need if there is a zombie apocalypse

Q-tips –I quiver in fear just thinking about a world where these ear orgasm inducing cotton swabs do not exist. I know I’m not supposed to put anything smaller than my elbow in my ear, but I give not a fuck about that rule. The sounds I make when cleaning out my ears could, and actually should, be recorded and used as background noise for porn movies and phone sex lines. If my ears aren't clean, how will I hear the zombies?
My friend and fellow author, Susan Reinhardt, has a new book coming out, Chimes from a Cracked Southern Belle. Don’t let the title fool you, this is not a book about zombies or the zombie apocalypse.
