Karma is a you-know-what

Karma is a you-know-what

I'm just going to say it. Karma is a b*tch. Remember that last post I wrote about how getting a mammogram was more fun than getting your tires fixed? Yeah, well…. Guess what happened to me the day after I posted it. This: Yep. Was coming back from Lakewood at a media...

How this Dallas Mom feels about Ebola

Ebola is so polarizing. People are scared. Smarty-pants people are scolding the scared, telling them to calm down. People pointing fingers at other people to blame. It's a big hot mess. The way I see it, fear and logic don’t play nice with each other and it’s just...

The Wife Upgrade

“Good morning dear,” the hubs greeted me through the refrigerator door. “Good morning love of my life.” Smiling, I thought it was a great response as opposed to my usual pre-coffee grunt. He looked at me quizzically. “Do you mean that?” Clearly he’s confused. WTF. Of...
