Surreal Housewife of Amador County
A Room of One’s Own

It’s almost that time of year again—the time when my kids go away for a summer visit to their dad’s house in Southern California for a couple of weeks. I miss my kids when they’re away, but not right at first. Right at first I do a lot of skipping, and singing, and then...

Throwback Thursday: Pepperidge Farm Remembers

Recently my social media friend Starmama posted a factoid about the history of German chocolate cake. Turns out there’s no real connection to Germany; it was simply a cake made using German’s chocolate. German comes from the inventor of the sweetened … Continue reading

Imagine if all the people tried not to be dicks

So the other day I was at Costco. For our overseas readers, Costco is grocery store on steroids. Everything in is it huge, bulk, wonderful. I love Costco. It’s very American.

Not everyone wants to be a suit wearing cube jockey.  There’s nothing wrong with being a suit wearing cube jockey, but for some reason, many people can’t...

In late June I received the Surf’s Up VoxBox from Influenster, full of complimentary products to test out and review on the blog. I love that word, complimentary, which is a fancy way of saying free. That word always reminds … Continue reading

A Humorous Take on Bullying

Yes, I am perfectly aware of the fact that my blogging has fallen off lately, thank you SO MUCH for mentioning it. The problem is, I’ve gotten my mitts into many other projects that are eating up my life, not the least of which was co-producing, co-directing, and performing in the Sacramento Listen to...

37 reasons I’m having trouble “embracing the moment”

37 reasons I’m having trouble “embracing the moment”

Sometimes I complain about motherhood. Shocking, I know. And every time I do, somebody somewhere somehow gives me the same sage advice: Enjoy it before it’s over. Live in the now. Soak it up.
