Skorts

Warning:  This post is a rant.  If you are not in the mood, or you’re super sensitive, or maybe even if you bring your dog into Starbucks.  You should close out and come back later. Take Our Daughters…and Sons to Work Day. Stop.  This has really got to stop. The day was originally Take Our Daughters to…

Pleats

“Have tos” by my definition are things that must be done no matter what else happens. Some are required, but still fun and others, not so much. When you work and are married with three children, you never need worry about feeling wanted because 95% of your life is occupied with “have to”. I don’t…

Some lovely gentleman flipped me off yesterday. His mother must be very proud. I was driving my children to swim which is like fighting a battle, but I’m on Scottsdale Road so it’s a battle with Escalades and sports cars. I’m in the fast lane, which I don’t care who you are or where you…

Everything is overanalyzed and just down right…

Casual Friday

It is Friday. When I was younger I never understood older people saying, “Thank God it’s Friday.” That sounded so defeatist to me. If you hate your job so much that you are just living for Friday then you need to change it up.  These people are stuck in a rut.  I will never, ever be in…

Cold Water with Like Colors

“What are the directions?” I asked my 7 year old daughter when she told me we needed to do a Book Mobile for her reading book Chocolate Fever. She replied that there were no instructions she was just supposed to put pictures and fun things from the book on paper and tape them to a…
