Swamp Water

Wow it has been a minute since I added anything to this blog. I regret that but let’s try this again. I’ve been back in California for two years now, and coming back almost didn’t happen. The fear of the unknown is very powerful. Not to mention the mom guilt of taking my 13-year-old daughter … Continue reading

SMTWTFS

At thirty-five years old I’ve become that person. I have one prescribed pill and until a week ago I was doing fine remembering to take it. Then, it happened. What every person with prescription medication fears, “Did I take my medication?” “Shit.” “Did I take my medication!?” It’s thirty minutes past the scheduled time. Panic … Continue reading

Me Giving Health Advice?

Today I had the urge to talk about food substitutions. A Bad Substitution (Yes, in my opinion): Aspartame Aspartame is an artificial sweetener used as a sugar substitute in some foods and beverages.

Bit by bit more reality shows popped up like Big Brother and American Idol. Each show having its own niche. After the first seasons … Continue reading

Why One Ply Why

Dear One Ply Toilet Paper, Why do you exist? If you were not around, then you wouldn’t be an option at the store for my husband to choose from. Do you not know that you will just disintegrate. Why put either one of us through that. My husband cannot be expected to read the package … Continue reading

Adventures in Babysitting

I’ve been babysitting a 9 year old boy as a favor for my husband’s co-worker since June 7. My daughter is visiting her father’s family so this at least occupies my mind while she’s gone. Watching Johnny is an adventure in itself. I kid you not, he was watching a program with a dancing segment … Continue reading
