Slacker Volunteer

I took on a volunteer position with one of my kids' schools this year and have been doing a pretty good job (if I say so myself).

Then I got sick. That was three weeks ago and I'm just now working on getting rid of my second (or is this one my third?) sickness. I hesitate to say "cold" too loudly because if it hears me, it might come running and lick me on the mouth. Again.

Things I've Learned This Week

** Your cabin fever's reached Code Red when you're jealous of the squirrels outside breathing in all that fresh, freezing cold air.

** Trying to work a crossword puzzle when you're tired just makes you feel stupid.  And tired.

** I've washed my hands so many times over the past few days that I may no longer have fingerprints.

D is for Dishonest

In some ways, I hope my son is just like me. In most ways, I hope he isn’t.

I was an ok kid who liked to run around naked. Front yard nudity is quite harmless when white-tailed deer and turkeys are the only ones to see it. It is, however, a little embarrassing when family friends remember you for it.

The only trouble I really ever caused was behaving inappropriately during inappropriate situations (ie: laughing when my parents were being serious). My sister was usually the one…

Kids Who Sell Stuff… And People Who Don’t Buy

I have 3 kids which means in our time and like everyone else, we’ve sold a lot of crap. We’ve sold cookie dough, pizza making kits, wrapping paper, God awful things they considered “gifts”, magazine subscriptions and of course, Girl Scout cookies.  We are VERY lucky that the elementary school we’re at now doesn’t participate in item sales – they just ask us for pledges and donations at the beginning of the year. And then nickel and dime us the rest of the year, but that’s a different…

Is the Jig REALLY Up?

Remember that story a few weeks ago when we lost the mother fucking Elf on the Shelf, and I was all panicked that it might be the last Christmas for believing in Santa in my household?  Well, it saddens me beyond words, but I'm pretty sure the jig is up (at…

Premature Pushing of the Panic Button

Don't ya just hate it when you go through an entire day thinking it's a day later than it actually is?  This is exactly what happened to me on Tuesday of this week.  I could've sworn it was the last day of November and, therefore, convinced myself that it was, indeed, time to switch into that holy-shit-mode of the holiday season trying to get everything done that needs to get…

Halloween 2011 Recap


Once again one of my very favorite holidays has passed me by faster than I could say, "Boo!"  Yes, Halloween has come and gone and left me with a massive candy overdose.  I seriously don't think I'll be able to look at a Twix bar the same without puking ever again (at least not until next week anyway).  The festive weekend was certainly chalked full of all kinds of fun while it lasted though.


It all started with our annual adults-only costume party, which…

UNICEF Halloween Trick or Treat Boxes and Beyond

We have all heard about UNICEF, an acronym for the United Nations Children’s Fund (the I for International and the E for Emergency were dropped in 1953).UNICEF has been around since the 1940′s and was initially created to provide for children in countries that had been devastated by WWII. Today, UNICEF operates in more than 150 countries and provide humanitarian relief to focus on saving children’s…

Yet Another Reason Why I'm THE Queen of Embarrassing Moments

I think we've all learned by now that I am THE queen of embarrassing moments.  Lord knows I've certainly had way more than my fair share of 'em.  And if I hadn't figured out how to laugh at myself a long, long time ago, well, I'd sure as hell be living in a ditch somewhere with a bag over my head by now.  Luckily, though, I just dust myself off and move on with the show,…

Things I've Learned This Week


** Recovery time from the weekend is much much longer than it used to be.


** I should just hand out money to trick-or-treaters as much as candy costs these days.


** School pick up in the rain is about as much fun as filing your nails with a chain saw.


** It's impossible to get the smell of dead snail off your hands.  Don't ask…

Bad Dog


So lately, our dog has really been pressing his luck around here.  Just when I think I might actually kinda like the big ol' doofus, he goes and does something SO incredibly naughty that I wanna open the front door and allow him to become a street dog.  And unfortunately for my mother-in-law, his latest incredibly naughty "something" just so happened to…

If I Knew Then What I Know Now

With a daughter in middle school, I am reminded daily that being 13 is the worst age to be, followed closely by 12, 14, and 15.  I’ve often said there isn’t enough money in the world to convince me to redo those awful years.

I see Elliott struggle with self-esteem, body image, and with social…

Maria's Random Rants - The Problem With Desire

It’s a hard thing to want something, and I mean really want something, with all of your heart, and every bit of your being. So much so you can barely contain the elation in your voice when you talk about it, nor the flutter in your belly attesting to both extremes of excitement and apprehension. You find yourself struggling to keep the knot in your throat from rising just thinking about it, dreaming on it.

Yup, desire can do that to you.

Twenty years  of…

Over 25,000 Read My Blog Post on Bullying

I was overwhelmed by the response I received on my last blog post on bullying. Over 500 people left comments asking me to share more of my story. After some reflection, I have decided to open up and talk a little more about how it all started for me, and how it eventually ended.

The very first time I remember being bullied was when I was just 6 years old and in first grade. We lived in Miami Beach and I spent a lot of time outdoors playing in my bathing suit or little… Continue
