so here's where we are.... I MIGHT be taking this a little personal. When I put my all, my heart and soul into my volunteer work - for a small group of the (let's call them co-volunteers) to bash me for being (what my son would call) Extra at my jobs. So LET'S FOCUS on … Continue reading on a break…..
It's not 32 either.... but hey - who's counting.
for those fall-aholics who spend half of the year waiting for the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks?!? Here's your pill. (Disclaimer: I'm guilty of loving Pumpkin Spice things, all of the things usually - just not Starbucks much.)
I'm probably just a smidge overprotective at times with my kiddos. But then again, sometimes I get told I let them be to independent... I feel like it's a good balance? Or I'm just super wishy-washy. Or I suck at parenting. Or all that. I will do whatever I need to do to protect them … Continue reading Protective Mother Alert

READ THIS AGAIN..... I felt this... #realityCheck #BusyBlessedMess Facebook Follow
THIS RIGHT HERE! With my upcoming birthday approaching I keep getting asked “what do you want for your birthday”. Well there’s a bunch of “stuff” I want…. but most of all I want my friends and family to come see me, celebrate with me and drop some cash into this money pit of life & aging! 😀 honestly. Think I’m gonna buy a money tree….
Birthday Preferences of an Aging Starlet
Buy me no presents, bake me no cake.
Hang no reminders for my sake.
All these attempts to jubilate me
simply serve to aggravate me.
Let birthday banners remain unfurled.
Share not the knowledge with the world
that I, alas, am one year older.
Strike it from my bio folder.
This trend at aging gracefully
does not work for dames like me
who strut our stuff upon the stage,
for starlets aren’t allowed to age.
In lieu of throwing me a bash,
why not simply give me cash?
I’ll put the money to good use
obscuring aging’s cruel abuse.
Advancing years require rebuttal,
so I prefer to be more subtle.
I need a simple tuck of face
ere I approach the casting place.
I won’t allow youth to defy me.
while I have means to petrify me.
So spare me cards soulful or funny

Ever feel like someone else has a quality that you wish you had? I do. But then I take a step back and remember me. I know some who have this insane quality for absolutely always speaking their mind. Sometimes at the cost of others feelings. I know, because I'm quite often on the short … Continue reading I’m gonna be me
Do you know what it feels like to be scared of the phone ringing? That's me right now. Probably going to be me for a while - again. It is going through my head over and over. Will she call and yell at me again? Did family not tell her? It's not a good idea … Continue reading Cinderella
I applaud you. I do. Every single campus in my county has a "sign up for PTO meeting" going on this week or next. I'm not that mom. So I fill out the part that says "I can't join but I'm willing to help". That's what I can promise you and I feel bad for … Continue reading I’m not joining the PTO
Anyone ever have bangs? Ya you did. So I'm thinking I may be odd or something because no matter how much they get "in the way" or won't lay right all the time - I am still not regretting it. I guess because I got the "swooshy" kind that go to the side? I must … Continue reading BANG REGRET
