Why yes. Yes it is.

Meat Monday can be a thing, right? That sammich looks way better than the bagel I've eaten so far today.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry

So I'm not singling out Marathon here -they just happen to be the station closest to my house. The oil industry in general can charge what it likes, and the guys at the top can cry "profitability" all they like -but we see the profits they're making, and the wages we're making.

"Fueling The American Spirit" is an outrageous marketing slogan -considering I just paid over $20 for FIVE gallons of gas. When I was in high school, working at McDonald's for $4.19 an hour, I could fill my gas tank for $20.

Mother's Day Is Coming

And this is pretty much how it feels many other days of the year. It's not pretty, and we're not asking for easy street -but life (and our family) often gives us a big middle finger, and until you've been in the same damn situations over and over and over again, you'll just never understand why we all sound like a chorus of whiners.

But props to this mom for putting it into words.
I lost it this morning. Really lost it. After the kids were all dressed for school, breakfast eaten, teeth brushed, backpacks packed, I turned on the TV. I have a rule that the kids can only watch certain channels. There is so much crap on TV – shows geared towards teens and preteens, shows that showcase kids calling other people “idiot” and “stupid” and generally behaving obnoxiously – and in all seriousness, I have a hard enough ...

Welp. Nothing proves how easy it is like the consistent refusal to do it their god damn selves, right Mary? My mother's father's most frequently-repeated words were, "Don't make more work for your mother." But he was a stay-at-home Dad, in 1956.

I confess I'm almost envious of how legit I've seen +Mike Diamond be. He's the type to swoop in and bust out a can of progressive whoopass all over that second shift, yo.  #cliffhanger

Work It Girl!

So this past Tuesday I hit the elliptical at work (15 minutes), took a walk at lunch to hack some portals, and then walked about five laps around the block (portal farm) later that night. Since then I have been slackin'.

Tonight I must get sweaty (giggity)!

I love my Samsung Galaxy S3 so much, it nearly broke my heart when I ran it over with my mini-van last week! This would be a pretty awesome replacement, if I won! Thumbs Up!

Rockford City Council Meeting
Mayor Morrissey Recognizes the Screw City Scholars 4-H Club

Our 4-H club, the Screw City Scholars, was recognized by the mayor and city council tonight -just before a really important vote on a multi-million dollar redevelopment of one of our many abandoned factory buildings. It is officially "Screw City Scholars" week in the city of #RockfordIL !

Needless to say, we didn't get much fanfare in the news -but it's not too late to buy a box of +Eickman's Processing Co meat to help support the Winnebago County 4-H Extension office! Just $40 -contact me if you're interested.

Introduction
I'm a writer at heart -always have been. Social Media is my bread and butter, but it's also a really exciting field to work in and I'm enthusiastic about exploring all the possibilities it holds. I play Ingress, Dungeons & Dragons, and Sid Meier's Civ 5 with equal excitement.

 I'm also working on a Fantasy novel, but that's a story for another day...



Bragging rights
I have given birth to two healthy 10 pound baby boys. I've been a single mother, a published writer, a community manager, an honor student, a mobile DJ, a city reporter, and I'm a good shot with a 9mm pistol. Also, I've been told I type "wicked fast".
