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.

Ugh.  Does this sound familiar?  You’re expecting company in a an hour and the house is a disaster.  What you need to do is a quick “shuffle’.  Tidy the kitchen, wipe up the bathroom counters and give the floors a quick once over.  You run around, grabbing stray magazines and homework off the floor, get […]

Self Talk And Angry Cleaning

They say talking to yourself is a sign of intelligence. Good Lord I hope that’s true because yesterday there was a whole new level of chatter going on and I swear to you….only the dog was listening.  If you’d been a fly on the wall, the “oh so positive self talk” you wold have heard […]

My First Senior Moment?
