Farewell to 2012…

I meant to post something last week about how it was a blogging anniversary of sorts.  Counting the years gets kind of scary so I’ve sort of stopped doing that.  But it’s been a while since I started this here blog.  I didn’t post because life and you all know...

The IRS is On Notice

This year continues to be fairly decent.  I mean, really, there isn’t a whole lot to complain about and that is AWESOMENESS because I’m actually rather used to there being a good deal to complain about. But there is ONE thing that I can complain about.  I am justified as...

Where’s the compassion?

Maybe I’m feeling down because we watched Michael Moore’s “Capitalism: A Love Story” on Netflix last night.  Because, obviously, that is a documentary that is greatly focused on economics.  But I saw a lot of… callousness…  in that film too.  How so many people decided to cast aside PEOPLE in...

What the what now?

Monday.  It always comes so so soon. I feel like just when I’m starting to get into the groove of the weekend, it’s over.  Bummer. And I’m even late posting this because… because why?  Because it’s Monday.  Yep, that works for me.  So before Monday is officially over, I’m going...

Why is the weekend so short??

So it’s Monday.  Again.  The bright side is that it’s the last day of August.  Don’t let the door hit you in the rear on your way out, August.  I’m onto to bigger and better (and cooler) things. Still, as happy as I am to see August end, I wouldn’t...

So much for BlogHer ’10

It just figures.  Not two minutes after I hit “publish” on that last post where I mentioned wanting being determined to go to BlogHer next year, I saw an ad in my sidebar from BlogHer ads saying, “Hey!  Sign up for next year, yo!” NEXT year??  Already?? Surely this was...

Step Back

I’m sure you’ve all noticed that over the last several months, my blog has taken somewhat of a backseat in my life.  This has been about a year in the making, it seems.  Ever since Evie was born, I started cloth diapering and then knitting, well… my mind has been...

My Own Money

I need my own money. Like many stay at home moms, I rely on my husband’s income.  And it can be hard to budget things on only one income.  Especially when that paycheck only comes once a month.  And often, I don’t feel comfortable staking a claim on any of...

Feel free to skip this one

I know how much you all love to hear me whine and moan and kvetch about money (or rather, the lack thereof), but I always feel so much better when I unload these things off my heart and mind.  The blog is my clearinghouse for all my neurotic issues, after...

Monday Hate List – Now With Pictures!

I don’t generally condone of the word “hate” because it has such strong connotations, but in this case, I think Monday deserves it.  How dare it force us out of the lull that is the weekend and make us be productive and stuff!  So here’s what I’m hating today: That...
