F* It

It’s Friday. The weather (here) is perfect. We’ve got new music from Justin (the Justin). Life is pretty good, right? So, make the most out of your weekend – make it count. Have a really great Mother’s Day – if you’re a mom, I hope you’re spoiled (or you take time to spoil yourself). If you’re […]

I once got into a huge fight with Seth when I was pregnant with Matty about whether or not Matty (who in this hypothetical situation was a Lebron-level basketball player) would go to college or go straight into the NBA. I, of course, said there was no way he would ever skip college. Seth, of […]

There was an essay written at the start of the year, published here, and it’s sparked a bunch of individuals from all over the country to write their own mini essays recalling the moments they became adults. I’ve read plenty of them and have yet to determine whether or not I consider myself an adult. […]

Long ago, in a time far away from now my much cooler self created a playlist as an ode to Summer. This morning I played that playlist and this (song?) came on. It’s Thursday so it seemed appropriate to share but also, being much wiser now, I can attest that it’s still pretty sound advice. Flashback to the […]

As promised yesterday, I’m going to be the good Beyoncé fan I am and talk about Lemonade. First things first. HOLY FUCK. That visual album was a complete mind fuck. Was it beautiful? Yes. Was it artistic? Yup. Is Bey still a BAMF? Obviously. Was it what I was expecting to see? Absolutely not. NO. Just, […]

I don’t have a comondrum to unload today because, in all honesty, I don’t have much going on today at all – mentally or emotionally. I actually woke up this morning relieved that it was Monday. (I know.) This weekend was one of those weekends but not because it was particularly packed with activities and I couldn’t catch […]

Music. Man, yesterday was rough. We lost a musical icon, a one-of-a-kind, a there-will-never-be-another. As the news broke yesterday and I secretly hoped it was someone else, I was sad but mostly in shock. We’ve lost so many legends in so little time. It didn’t really hit me until I picked the boys up from school, I was […]

Let me introduce you to Chris Stapleton. I’ve loved him for years – it will take you one listen to understand why. He’s been a songwriter for a long time, writing a TON of songs that, if you’re a country music fan, you probably already know. He BLEW UP this year after cleaning up at the CMAs […]

A friend of mine, Ms. Beverly Goldenstein, has a blog I follow religiously 1) because it’s hilarious 2) because sometimes I need to make sure she’s still alive and 3) she’s not afraid to speak her truth. On Sunday Bev finally decided to speak her truth about something near and dear to her, a touchy subject for a […]

I have a comondrum (that’s obviously what a conundrum on a Monday is called) and this one is legit. I actually need your help. There is one major goal of parenting and, as simple and maybe stupid as it may sound, that is to keep my kids alive. I would say that’s the bottom tier of […]
