Oh, HELL-o, 4-0?!?!

Today is my 40th birthday. When the hell did I get to be 40 years old?? What am I supposed to do now, just wait for my body to fall apart since I have hit the infamous 4-0 or call myself middle aged?? I don’t know why, but 40 has always meant “old” to me. […]

The Tooth Fairy Pays WHAT?!?!

Last Saturday night, The Diva announced that she had a loose tooth. Her first loose tooth. She’s very excited. I’m a little weirded out. I didn’t think she would start losing teeth at this age, but apparently this is all normal. So now I get to play The Tooth Fairy. It dawned on me yesterday […]

Dear Idiot Parents,

Yes, I am talking to YOU, Idiot Parents. The parents that raise ill-mannered, spoiled rotten, entitled children to be whiny, can’t live in the real world, me-me-me adults. Yes. I said it. You and your disrespectful children is what’s wrong with this country today. I am sick to death of seeing children who have no […]

Mother Nature STILL Has PMS

I believe I did a post about this, right about this same time last year. In fact, I know I did. Apparently Mother Nature does not want to cure her severe PMS and would rather torture the poor souls who live on this Earth. So nice of her, eh? The last couple of weeks have […]

Dish Network Stole My Money

That’s right, Dish Network are a bunch of thieves who only care about getting money, any way they can. Last Friday night, they stole $266 from me. But their “system” actually tried to take 4 times that amount out of my checking account. That is over $1100!! I fully expect my service to be shut […]

How To Sleep Comfortably With No Central Air And 100+ Degree Heat

Most of the country is already at the end of Summer and the beginning of Autumn and the Holiday Season, but here in SoCal, that is not the case. September is usually our hottest month {Along with May, June, July, August & sometimes October…}, but for whatever reason, this Summer has been odd. I have […]

Why Are Bloggers Afraid To Write A Negative Review?

There is a curious thing in the blogosphere regarding ethics, honesty and truthfulness in mommy blogger reviews. Bloggers are adamant that everyone follow the rules, be open, honest and forthright in their review posts. Follow the FTC guidelines. Etcetera. Etcetera. Etcetera. Ad nauseum. However, many reviewers either will not post a negative review at all, […]

I’m Melting…

It’s a million degrees, we have no central air and I live in The IE. I have put an ice pack on my feet to feel comfortable enough to sleep. I feel like I’m walking through Jell-O with this waking up at o’dark-thirty to get The Diva off to kindergarten. And The Free Range Stupid […]

Just Gonna Stand There And Watch Me Burn?

A friend of mine, Kas, from Southern Bella’s Ways To Save made me aware of the I Love The Way You Lie video yesterday. It’s very powerful. The lyrics and the imagery. It gave me chills. I especially like the chorus: Just gonna stand there and watch me burn? Well that’s alright because I like […]

I Used To Be A Good Writer…

I remember. I do. I used to write really good, engaging posts. I had something to say. And I said it well. Then something happened. What, exactly, I’m not sure. But something happened. I used to get an idea for a post and rush to get it written. Now, although I still get fabulous ideas, […]

Blogger Deletes Blogs, Owners Rush To Move To WordPress

Blogger inadvertently gave a huge boon to WordPress designers last week with their sudden and arbitrary deletion and/or blocking of blogs by their evil demonic bots. No one is totally clear on why this is taking place, but we are theorizing that it has to do with bloggers who have any ads other than Google […]

Are You There God? It’s Me, Shan.

Hi. I have a couple questions for you. I’m hoping you can answer them for me, cause I’m kind of confused. About three weeks ago, my friend found out she had this massive tumor on her ovary. She has no health insurance. The ER doc said it was probably cancer and she would need to […]
