You know, some things are not funny. But they can be if you look at them from a different angle-- kinda sideways. So this is not funny, but I'm going to make it so. Here goes: I took my two new basset hounds, Barkley and Roxy (we had to trade in the other one, Lily,… Continue reading Buy one mop, get new messes free
I am very excited today (sorry, honey, it's not you). I can't believe I'm about to say this, but I am so excited about my new mop. Did those words really just come out of my mouth? I apologize to anyone who used to know me in my previous intellectual life. I know that all… Continue reading There’s a new mop in town
So it's raining today. A steady drizzle accompanied by gloomy gray skies. I have no food in the house and need to go to two different stores to get everything we need. Two toddlers and two stores.

Today, I got… Continue reading My underpants are making me angry
