When did we start trusting “experts” over our own eyeballs?

When did we start trusting “experts” over our own eyeballs?

A few weeks ago, in an uncharacteristic move because I hate pain, I engaged in a conversation on Facebook about sleep training. It was in response to an article basically saying how sleep training does not harm baby brains, or whatever, which I believe. Great cool whatever. But the thread degenerated (AS THREADS DO)...

Tidy houses are not a thing so stop it

Tidy houses are not a thing so stop it

I have decided that anyone with kids who says their house is tidy and clean is lying. Their house is not clean. It’s a fucking disaster like mine. Don’t tell me I’m wrong. I’m not wrong. THEY ARE LYING. I don’t give a shit if they have photographic evidence on Instagram. You know they pushed...

Please may I just excuse myself from this interaction? JACK DANIELS.

Please may I just excuse myself from this interaction? JACK DANIELS.

Sometimes I’m at the park or a kid’s birthday party and I end up in a chat with another mom, and that’s cool, I like to chat. Sometimes though, within moments, it becomes clear that we aren’t here to “chat” but rather engage in a pissing match to determine WHO EXACTLY IS THE BETTER...

Not a Movie Review of Mad Max: Fury Road. Also? Flying Cats

Not a Movie Review of Mad Max: Fury Road. Also? Flying Cats

Hello and welcome to Mashup Meme Monday where I make it sound like I’ve been doing this meme forever when in fact it’s the first and probably the last time ever. I saw the nonstop roller coaster, guns and post-apocalyptic car chases, Fast-and-Furious-on-steroids event that is the new Mad Max: Fury Road. My one...

Why time flies

Why time flies

To some, me included, it’s a compelling mystery as to where the time goes. Especially while standing at the intersection of 50+ and EmptyNest-hood. I often asked myself: Is time moving faster, or am I moving slower? I really believe it’s a little of both. And I think I have finally figured it all...

It’s the little things

It’s the little things

There’s a little bench on a beautifully shaded street close to my office that often has a little “shrine” or homage displayed. Not big. Not flashy. Nothing blatant. For whom, I know not. Honoring what, I haven’t a clue. It may be a small bouquet of fresh-cut flowers, or a balloon, or a colorfully painted...

Hey! I’m back. By the skin of my teeth.

Hey! I’m back. By the skin of my teeth.

I have never been quite as lost as I was the past few months. I think it started with Mac’s hand injury on December 29. Maybe it doesn’t sound huge, but it was. Something about a 6 foot piece of sheet metal dropping 40 feet onto your best friend and husband, father of your...

The view from a cot on Half Dome, or, my mom

The view from a cot on Half Dome, or, my mom

My mom taught me that if you’re broke and possibly broken, the thing to do with your tax return check is to pack up your kids and drive north, up the coast of Oregon, Washington, all the way to British Columbia, fishing along the way. You go to those fancy gardens and ride a...
