#VoicemailsAreDumbStopLeavingThem

August 21, 2014

I don’t normally look this stressed out, but when I do, it’s because I have 1,383 unheard voicemail messages. No, for real, I am going to prove it to you: Stop it with the voicemails. I know I can’t be alone on this. #VoicemailsAreDumbStopLeavingThem

Sex every single day? #GTFO.

August 18, 2014

Shaun: “Huh. Yet another woman is on the news who had sex every single day with her husband.” Me: “I call BS. And why is this even newsworthy? I’ll tell you why – because it’s unreal.” Shaun: “I want sex every single day.” Me: “Good luck with that.” There seems to be this new trend. Sex [...]

The Medium

July 24, 2014

After a long talk with Shaun, I had decided not to make this a blog post and open it up for the entire world to see. There were personal and professional reasons for this. Instead, I wrote about this experience in this forum for women, and the questions kept rolling in. As the days have [...]

Sunday Funnies: Husbands & Dinner

July 13, 2014

Super Nanny keeps things running smoothly around here. With her help, it’s all very Pleasantville. But sometimes I’ll send her home early if I’ve worked late the night before. This is how my husband reacts on the “send-Super-Nanny-home-early” days: His confusion is adorable. Is this how your husband reacts to lack of dinner?

Everything fell into place. #GirlPower

June 6, 2014

I’m not selling cars anymore. I know, shocking. I was really good at it, and I enjoyed it, but something just wasn’t right inside of me. I was unsettled. I felt like something was calling me. Probably the aliens (but Shaun says I am not allowed to talk about my alien conspiracy theories online – [...]

#CampThrowback (also known as: #WTF have I agreed to?)

May 29, 2014

I’m so agreeable when it comes to Brittany Gibbons. Seriously. This woman should sell cars. BRITTANY: Hey, I am hosting this social media camp thingy, and I want you to be a camp counselor. ME: Cool! What sessions do you want me to teach? BRITTANY: Well, it’s more like a non-conference that’s four days, where [...]

Everyone’s a food critic.

May 19, 2014

Those chips are fattening. Are those on your diet?  This is what a man said to me the other day, as I was eating a bag of chips from the vending machine. I responded by simply licking my fingers. I shouldn’t have to explain my food choices to anyone, or even feel the need to [...]

Should I hire a realtor? Probably. Otherwise it will wind up like the time I thought I could tile my shower by simply watching YouTube videos.

May 16, 2014

This is my master bathroom shower. Two years ago, Shaun and I decided that we could rip out the fiberglass installed shower (SUCCESS!) and install a tile one… ALL. BY. OURSELVES. BY. WATCHING. YOUTUBE. VIDEOS. (FAIL!) This other time we patched our wall after watching YouTube videos. YouTube videos are great for learning things like The [...]

The Seven Year Itch Series: Seven Years TODAY

May 12, 2014

Holy. Shit. Is today May 12th? Did Facebook really just save the day and remind me that today is our anniversary? I swear sometimes I’m the dude in this relationship. I forget important dates all the time. For the first three years of Logan’s life, I could have sworn his birthday was March 9th, instead [...]

It Builds Character

May 9, 2014

Dear Lars, I’m super sorry about this morning. You know I would never normally get out of the Traverse or hold up traffic in the school’s drop off lane. But today I had no choice. Your brother’s book bag was stuck on his booster seat. I had to get out and help him. And then [...]
