Tattoos And Teens. Current Mood Frustrated.

Current mood: Frustrated I just narrowly avoided having a very heated discussion with my teens about tattoos. Yes tattoos. Apparently “everyone is getting them“.  Yah, not in my house. Honestly I think the rules around here are pretty loose.  Family first.  Then school.  Sports/jobs are next and friends are extremely important too.  Respect your parents, […]

Forty-Six Things

Passive Aggressive Letters From The Suburbs

It’s that time again.  Actually, it’s way past time for a good old fashioned rant.  Nothing gets it off your chest better than some good old fashioned passive aggressive letters.  After all, it’s cheaper than therapy and less fattening than chocolate.
