That Time My Toilet Sent Me to the Hospital
Two nights ago, I was rushed to the emergency room at 2:30am. I've been pretty sick this week with a bad cold. It's not the flu - I tested negative for that, thank goodness - but it shares a lot of the same symptoms and sucks nearly as much ass. My hacking ...

Help Me Not Feel Like a Flabby Freaking Mess
Help, y'all. In a month and a half, my husband and I are going to Grenada for a week. A WEEK OF VACATION IN A TROPICAL PLACE OMG HAS IT BEEN 45 DAYS YET?! This is epic, because a.) we've always been too broke to go anywhere, and b.) we've never had a honeym...

Pack(age) Rat
Hey y'all! Remember me? I'm the one who pops in less and less frequently now that her kids are like, "MOM! Don't blog about that!" Since I don't want to rack up therapy bills, I'm trying to take their wishes into consideration, although it makes for a borin...

Flawlessly Braless
Y'all. I will never, ever, ever again complain about having small boobs.* *I mean, not for at least a month or so. For years, I've felt like my teeny titties have been a disadvantage. No cleavage in cute tops. Stomach sticking out further than my boobs do. ...

Mr. Deathbed
Recently a stomach virus swept through our household with a ferocity I've rarely seen. I mean, we all fell prey, swiftly and severely, to its vomitorious grossness. All except for my husband, of course, who is rarely ill. Probably because he works six days ...

PISS CUP, People
Older brothers, man. They torment you when you're a kid, and you think it'll end when you're adults - but no, because then they're uncles who torment you via your own children. When we moved to Ohio, my brother Steve and his family moved here too, and it's ...

The Stank Surprise
Bathrooms are inherently stinky places. I mean, just think about the shit that goes on in there (pun totally intended. You're welcome). So unless you're in there scrubbing the grout with a toothbrush every day, it's probably going to smell not-so-fresh at l...

Photobucket Sucks and My Blog Looks Like Crap
Eight years ago, when I started this blog, I was the (hugely pregnant) mother of a four-year-old and a two-year-old. Despite the fact that I was peeing all the time - and changing diapers, and being whined at and clung to - I spent three grueling days figur...

Save the Laughter for After
I try to be an adult, to have poise and maintain composure and all that. It's just that sometimes, my inner twelve-year-old makes herself known - and recently, she made herself known so loudly and clearly that Adult Me wanted to shrivel into nothingness rig...

Lordy Lordy, I Suck at 40!
In eleven days, I'll officially be married to a FORTY-YEAR-OLD. That's right: Curtis is gonna be celebrating the big 4-0. It's funny 'cause we've been together long enough for me to remember him turning the big 2-1. I gave him underwear (two pairs of Tommy ...
