Spitballin’

Ok. Feeling helpless, and I detest feeling helpless. While the genius women of color, lawyers, congresswomen, indigenous women and boomers who have all had to fight for equality before now take the lead and march us into a current decade, I have to do something. Here are some ideas… some might be terrible, but hey, […]

Angry

Like most sane women in the United States right now, I am angry. I am angry that once again we have rights over our own body taken away. I have seen so many videos and attempts by women, and some men, to talk about what it means to take away a woman’s right to carry […]

Tough Girl

I am a tough girl. I will not apologize for it, and I’m not sorry. Girls and women are generally supposed to be demure, permissive, delicate, charming, quirky is sometimes ok, but only if you aren’t loud about it. Funny, but not at the expense of others. Whatever you do, don’t be offensive. Girls are […]

Flagtacular

Non-binary. What? What the hell is that? What is wrong with kids these days? Can’t they just pick a gender? Why do they have to make everything so complicated?! If it was my kid … So it is. It is my kid. Now what? This isn’t a place you expect to be. I never thought […]

(school = work) Here’s a tip: If you have a stressful life, work at a school. While it does add even more stress, nothing will turn your day around […]

This Bill. This massive red flag of a Bill is going to do nothing but add fire to what is already an out of control bonfire of a divide in this country. The way the general public receives information these days is dangerous. Not only because there is seemingly nowhere simple to go to get […]

Sanity Test

I wouldn’t say I was a “well balanced” individual originally, but I was pretty smart, perceptive, patient…. oh the amount of patience I once had! I was silly and didn’t take life too seriously. Cut to one pandemic, one husband, a gay teenager and a miniature more sarcastic, more sassy 11 year old version of […]

Wake the sleeping teen, do all the am Mom things, then repeat the whole act for scene 2 with the pre-teen. Breakfast ☑️ Kids all on busses☑️ On time for work WITH coffee (made […]

Zen or Ostrich

I am a grateful woman. I will not say “lucky” because nothing was handed to me. I have fought for my husband, for my kids, and now for myself. I am appreciative of the things I have because I know what my life was before all of the “things”. I do not dwell in struggle. […]

Accidentally Boujie

I heard a joke a while back from a comedian that when they were little, the family couldn’t afford for them to be asthmatic or lactose intolerant. I cannot pretend this isn’t true for me. I recently had my food allergies tested and found that I am ✨sensitive✨ to most of the foods I ate. […]
