It had been a while since the last time Illy and I had gone on a date. Sure, we'd done things together as a family, but it wasn't concentrated time with just us. We checked out the calendar, selected a date, and put our names in the box. This was our date and Nothing was going to change that... hopefully. Well, the day finally arrived and, although I was already tired from a full day out with all three…Continue
When you first think of the word "date," it's easy to assume that it involves two individuals roughly around the same age who are in some type of romantic relationship, whether new or seasoned. While this may be true, "dates" can include kids, too. (preferably not in addition to the two individuals in a romantic relationship- that's what babysitters are for!)

So yesterday I took the entire day off to hang out with my son, who is not quite 14. I told him that we could do whatever he wanted to do - the day belonged to him.

It was his day after all and there were cute guys and some fighting and car chases. I could roll with that. But I was more than a little…Continue

Ah, it's the holiday season -- that magical time of the year when you wanna sip hot cocoa by the fire and shove people outta the way for a deal on a flat-screened t.v. Cause let's be real, y'all. December tends to turn the very best of us into giant assholes.
Every year I tell myself I'm not gonna get swept up into all the hoopla of running here, there and…Continue

I'm not a big fan of the mall—mostly because I tend to have horrible experiences there. I frequently get hoodwinked by enthusiastic salespeople who sell me junk I don't need and never use, and I have had enough dressing room blunders to write an entire book of anecdotes on fitting…Continue

When I think of a segway, there are two images that come to mind. The music video to Weird Al Yankovic's Song "White and Nerdy" and the movie Mallcop with Kevin James.
I found out about a place where you could take indoor segway rides in an older mall…Continue
