Sometimes the poignant moments in my life aren’t when the girls are singing and dancing together and aren’t a pretty suburban sunset. Sometimes the poignant moment is when you’re breezing into Target with the kids and you see this shirt. It’s pretty lame and will probably be worn by 50-60% of the moms out trick-or-treating… Continue reading #28 Boos
I’m not going to say this was the highlight of my day, but I will say that it feels good to have folded like six loads of laundry AND put it away. One of those loads may or may not have sat on that bench for a full week waiting to be folded. You can… Continue reading #25 Laundry

Howdy! How was your weekend? Is it still going? For me, well, it’s Monday, it’s President’s Day, and I feel like a fatty. I gotta pull it together. What was going to be a loosening of my usual eating standards over the holidays (ahem, 2 months ago) has turned into a food and drink free-for-all that’s… Continue reading Whole 30 or Bust!
