A Tale of Sin City

I feel like i’ve finished integrating back to ‘real life’. There truthfully isn’t overly much to relay in a blog about my Vegas trip other than it was very very much greatly needed, and it is equally as much appreciated. It’s fair to say I lost my ass there, but in reality this damned thing […]

Today is a day we are supposed to celebrate our country. Hoo-ra USA.My idea of a celebration is somebody helping watch my kids while i imbibe umbrella-bedecked drinks so that i can enjoy watching someone else take care of my kids. Instead, the kids are running roughshod over myself and my mom to the point […]

Minions… A Theory

So I’m just spitballin’ here, but I have a theory. The little yellow Minions from Despicable Me are a fantasy version of our children. Let me explain. I took the kids to see the sequel today. (the first was better in my opinion, but the kids really enjoyed this one) There were a lot more […]
