Thirty. Freaking. Five.
Over the weekend, I turned thirty-five years old. Thirtyfreakingfive. I can no longer say I'm in my early thirties (not that I ever really did, but at least I had the option to). I'm firmly in the middle, and a mere five years away from being forty. Sigh. I...

10 Things Your ZUMBA Instructor Wants You to Know
This month marks my fourth year of being a licensed Zumba®
Fitness Instructor. See how happy (and, all right, slightly crazed) I looked on the day it become official? The truth is, I'm still that happy. (Although not nearly that tan any more, but tanning is...

(Child) Labor Pains
When I was a kid and my mom would ask me to do the dishes or something, I'd slump my way to the sink, griping with each step: "The only reason you had kids was so you'd have somebody else to do the dishes!" Now that I'm a mom, I realize how silly that was. ...

Not a Fan
Sometimes, something happens that makes you learn a lot about who you are as a person. For me, that epiphany came late Friday afternoon, when our air conditioner was all like, "I'm tired of keeping your house at a comfortable seventy-two degrees. See how we...

The Burnout
What's that rusty, creaking noise? Oh yeah - it's my fingers on the keyboard because it's been a minute since I've written anything. At all. For the first time in ... oh, I can't even remember how long. I know. My last post regarding vaginal freshness is di...

Eliminate Feminine Odor - Stat! - with MONISTAT®
Everything you own takes maintenance. Your car. Your lawn. Your teeth. (And if you're like me, your facial hair. Don't judge.) Some things, though, are blessedly more low-maintenance than others. Like... THE VAGINA. Aside from the occasional aesthetic trim-...

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year (?)
I haven't been able to hear myself think for, oh, basically the entire summer break - which is the main reason my blog has been gathering dust. When four boys are boy-ing all over the place, it's a cacophony of thumps, laughs, farts, and yells, punctuated b...

Bird's the Word
I am losing. My ever. Loving. Mind. A friend of mine just posted on Facebook about how she was sad that school was going to be starting, and I felt like complete shit because I myself am on the verge of packing my kids some sandwiches and a few changes of c...

Lube is for Pubes
I've never had what you'd call shampoo-commercial hair. It's a frizzy nightmare, which means deep conditioner and a hair dryer and a flat iron and smoothing serum any time I want it to look like nice, regular hair. Otherwise it looks like somebody put a bun...

Car-be-cue
During the fall and winter, I start packing on the pounds like a hibernating bear. I swear - as soon as as the weather gets cooler, I migrate to the kitchen and start whipping up comfort foods and baked goods as though they're going out of style. (Like, hav...

Five Ways to Poop in Public (Without Giving a Crap)
I can't, can't, absolutely can not  poop in public except under very specific circumstances. For reasons unknown to me, I have zero problems discussing it on the Internet ( haaaaay, high school crushes and former teachers!), but when it comes to the actual ...
