The Winner's Circle

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO MADE ME LAUGH UNTIL I CRIED. Your participation in response to my blog post, was much appreciated!

Very bad words for the win

Very bad words for the win
It’s been said that the difference between a good joke and a great joke is often found in the delivery. But I think the content is just as important as the delivery. My kids have mastered the art of delivery, but as far as content? Let’s just say there is still much work to be... Read more »

Raise your glass to real life

I have always enjoyed a comfortable, easy relationship with my mom. We go together like peanut butter and jelly! That being said, on a scale of one to infinity times six, I felt the infinity times six UNeasy while sitting on the sofa next to her as we watched the opening scene from the movie,... Read more »

Win a copy of the new book - Moms Who Drink And Swear: True Tales of Loving My Kids While Losing My Mind

It’s all fun and games until it’s not all fun and games. Do you see where I’m going with this? No? Do you look like this right now? Let me explain. It’s my way of saying that writing a blog and peeling off pithy, off color rants on Facebook and Twitter (I am @queenofcussin and... Read more »

Me: So how was practice? Kid: Meh….nothing exciting. Me: Well, did you have a good day at school at least? Kid: Does anyone ever have a good day at school? It’s school, Mom. Me: Man, who pissed in your Cheerios, grumpy-puss? Kid: What? I’m just not in the mood for chitchat, okay? Me: Well, you... Read more »


UPDATE! – Link to new fan page right here! HACKED! I don’t know why I was surprised that it happened to me, I mean why wouldn’t it happen to me? Eh? But you know what? I really was. Surprised that is. And shocked and scared. I ripped through all my important accounts, checking things over... Read more »

Book Reviews and You (this is a not so covert sales pitch for my book)

It is well documented that I am a lover of books. Some of my favorite reads have been panned, not only by critics, but also by genuine lovers of fiction across the board. The Fifty Shades of Grey series has been called atrocious, poorly written and recommended for “coma patients – wait, NO! They have... Read more »

Asking why as time goes by

Kids! They grow so fast and want to know everything – NOW! Their thirst for knowledge is unparalleled and difficult to tolerate sometimes, but damn if the time doesn’t fly by. My firstborn turns 13 tomorrow and I don’t know how the hell I am going to handle parenting a teenager. Dear GOD can I... Read more »

Should you become a blogger?

Do you feel the need to share YOUR essence? Do you?
I wish I had a had a nickel for every time somebody asked me if I think they should start blogging, and if they can make money as a blogger. If all the people who ask me this would pay me a nickel, I would probably make more money than I do as a blogger.... Read more »
