Scabies, Anyone?

Posted on April 7, 2009 at 11:05am 0 Comments

Vacations are like a drug of choice for me. The kind of drug that gives you a super “high” in the planning stages of the trip, and then kicks your ass on the downward spiral when you’re called to actually participate in it.

But, I’m addicted, so what’s a girl to do? The high, no matter how nefarious, is still delicious. Plain and simple. Just even thinking about vacation planning right now gives me the beginnings of a heady ruuuush. If I . . . just start . . . to visualize. .… Continue

Chopping Down a Christmas Tree

Posted on December 3, 2008 at 12:09pm 0 Comments

Kate, age 3, Will, age1

Parental Flaw #856: Finally having kids, thereby finally getting your chance to live vicariously through them. Then trying to cram the reliving into their first three years without a lick of thought. Average Future Therapy: Forced to attend family events at young ages makes the children lethargic and unresponsive to even the most mundane of outings. Will require ongoing cash bribery. Potential to do this to their offspring: Surely.

Toilets & Fences

Kate, age 5, Will, age 3, Sarah, age 1

Parental Flaw #737: Assuming that your children will adapt to the environment around them in some capable way, which they usually do, despite being raise by wolves. Future Therapy Rating: Agoraphobia inevitable, moving to the suburbs likely Potential to have attachment issues: Off the charts

Note: This one is especially for all you unlucky do-it-yourselfers. The brain-addled adults who think they can save a buck by ripping into…

Vomit Is King

Posted on September 2, 2008 at 10:07pm 0 Comments

Parental Flaw #151: Not being able to pull yourself up by your boot straps when the going gets tough, and thereby leaving your children to rot in a pool of their own vomit. Average Therapy Rating: Fear of toilets inevitable Potential to milk it for all it's worth: Of course

There are few things worse than a vomiting child. I'll take long, green boogers strung down to the chin, a hacking cough complete with a phlegm rag, or a nice slice through the palm, all over dealing… Continue

It's My Birthday, I Can Cry If I Want To

Posted on August 19, 2008 at 11:30am 1 Comment

It's my birthday today. August 18th. I'm only 24, so aging isn't really a factor for me. I had my kids at age 12, so being youthful comes naturally to me. I am so lithe, too. I just sprang out of bed today like I was 7 and proceeded to prance through the day with a sunshiny smile on my face. This getting old stuff is awesome.

All I really want for my birthday is an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen and a $10 gift card to Limited Too.

Too bad in my "dream world" the facade… Continue

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.

I joined Mombloggers last fall, but for some reason I can't get onto my main account! You can search for my other page, buy putting "Amanda" into the search here. I have a bunch of blog archives on there! Oh, well. I guess we all have to start over sometimes.
