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…

Jolly Juice

The other day I sent out a tweet that could quite possibly be misconstrued as naughty by nature -- I said something to the effect of "My husband's Jolly Juice is a-flowing".  Now many of you may have thought that this was some sort of sexual reference (cause let's be honest, usually it is), but surprisingly, this time, it was actually a very innocent comment referring to a new cocktail recipe that I found recently and somehow persuaded my husband to whip up for our friends and…

'Twas the Nucking Futty Night Before Christmas

The twins were bouncing off the walls in their…

Goatdog "Piles" on the Fun

I swear my blog pretty much writes itself with the ridiculous things that continuously happen to me.  And good old Goatdog is often at the center of the craziness that provides such good writing material.  Remember last week when he charged right through the glass on the front door of our house?  Well, the big furry bastard actually topped that little stunt over the weekend,…

The Day My Daughter Spared WAY More Than A Square

You know you're up a shit creek when your kid comes out of a public bathroom after ten LONG minutes and says, "Uh, can you come in here and help me, Mama?"  You might as well just take a deep breath, roll up your sleeves, and prepare for the worst.  I speak from experience because I dealt with this very same scenario over the weekend when I secured my status…

WARNING: ** Look away if you don't like an occasional f-bomb every now and then.  Cause in this case?  It just couldn't be helped.  (Sorry, Mom and Dad....) **



Every year our "Elf on the Shelf" tradition brings me a combination of both…

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…
