Shut the F*CK UP & Go to SCHOOL! When mom’s stop being nice and start being honest

Shut the F*CK UP & Go to SCHOOL! When mom’s stop being nice and start being honest

8:15 a.m. As I sit here, contemplating all of my work deadlines with my eye twtiching, staring out the window, as the aroma of Guinea pig piss wafts into my office and strangles me because some little person convinced me that she would clean the cage and LIED, I look around my office. My own little private space which has somehow become a natural disaster site since shoving all the stuff that we c... »

Easter ~ Is Religion is for the Weak?

I read a post the other day called Easter Week for Stoics. I read it with a completely open heart and mind. In fact, I like the writer’s perspective most of the time. We have a lot in common. This post, however, just didn’t sit right with me because while I feel everyone can celebrate Easter week as they like, something about it felt “don’t judge me because I don’t cry when I’m “supposed” to but I... »

Hangry Wife, Unhappy LIfe

Hangry, are you familiar with the term? Hangry is when a person who is hungry becomes unreasonably angry. I call it my Joe Pecsi side. I can be the kindest person you’ll ever meet but when my blood sugar gets low, I get the shakes, I feel faint and I go from sweetie to full on bitch in a matter of seconds; like a rabid dog. I am short and my words are biting, no one is safe. As I get the cold swea... »

25 Top Secret Tips to Rock Your Disney World Vacation with Kids

Last week was our spring break and we surprised our girls with a family road trip to Disney World. I planned and researched for months. You knew it was coming. After the Frozen party and the making of the  Elsa dress ( because I assure you there are none available to buy anywhere, not even at Disney World), it was time to go all in ..DIsney World style. The Big Guy and I have been to Disney World ... »

I Used to Be Beautiful

I use to be beautiful. When I was younger, I always thought I could be taller, thinner, lips fuller, breasts bigger, skin darker, nose straighter, fingers longer. Believe me, I had a laundry list of things that I wanted to change about myself. I think most of us probably do, at that age. But photos tell a different story. In retrospect I can see that I was beautiful. My skin was flawless and the p... »

The Hidden Dangers of Juicing

Are you a fan of juicing? A couple weeks ago, I watched the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and obviously, related a little too much. I immediately wanted to start juicing as a way to incorporate more fruits and veggies into our every day diet. The fact that I have read that juicing helps with everything from losing weight to curing cancer made it even that more lucrative. I’ve known for som... »

Preschooler Mauled by Pitbull so Let’s Euthanize the Babysitter

I don’t really expect anyone to euthanize the babysitter but, let’s be honest, if anyone is responsible for 4-year-old, Kevin Vincente being mauled by his neighbor’s pitbull, Mickey, maybe we should place blame where it belongs…at the feet of the negligent adult whose care he was in. The poor kid has been mauled beyond recognition and there is a Facebook campaign to save the dog from being e... »

It’s perfect for every 21st century small business from freelance writers, digital marketing professionals, and social media consultants to virtual assistants.
