It's Already Tuesday! Day 3 of 365

It's Already Tuesday! Day 3 of 365
I’ve taken to the exclamation “It’s Already Tuesday!” because otherwise, how do we really get through it all? “It’s Already Tuesday!” is a little joke I made up for myself. It’s a rib, an irony, a play on the fact that TUESDAY rarely — if ever — gets any love. Every other day of the week seems... Read more »

Did an entitled high school freshman send healthcare "letter" from "The White House"?

A friend just shared a health care “letter”, sent (seemingly) from “The White House”. Upon reading it, I asked: “Was this written by some lazy, entitled high school freshman?!” Clearly, the letter’s not legit…or is it? I asked my friend from where the letter originally came. He said, “From the same email address that sends the... Read more »

Confessions Of A Mom: That Time I Went To The Sybaris Pool Suites As A Teen

I reached out to Brett to share my story, and here,... Read more »

Do not be fooled by this face, because this dog almost killed my family this morning around 2am.

Suburban Mom's Meaty Interview With Chicago Writer Samantha Irby
[This column originally appeared — with profanity edited by its author for any sensitive, suburban eyes — on Patch.com in Evanston, Illinois.] I have a confession. I might have engaged in a bit of stalker behavior while trying to land an interview (below) with Samantha Irby. Before I ever knew she was a Chicago performer,... Read more »

My week of boobs

I wish my Nana were still here to make me laugh at the week I’ve had so far. My grandmother, Edna Jane Farmer, often said, “Oh Christine! You are so earthy!” In mock horror, she’d clutch her chest and roll her eyes whenever I uttered my honest-yet-scratch-the-surface-off-her-pearls opinions on life —  and it happened a... Read more »

It might be...it could be...it is! Holy Cow! I'm in perimenopause!

It might be...it could be...it is! Holy Cow! I'm in perimenopause!
Oh joy. According to WebMD, perimenopause is “the stage of a woman’s reproductive life that begins several years before menopause, when the ovaries gradually begin to produce less estrogen. It usually starts in a woman’s 40s, but can start in a woman’s 30s or even earlier.” I’m 45 and, according to my doctor, I’m there. He... Read more »

    Christine Wolf

    I tend to cover life's ups and downs. I don't shy away from the tougher, more emotional stories. While I'm always willing to voice an opinion, it sometimes contradicts my innate desire to please everyone at all times. Such is this crazy life, I suppose. Ultimately, I search for meaning in the human experience, and openly share how I (try to) keep my head above water. Thanks so much for dropping by. I really appreciate hearing your thoughts.
