So Friday I did my own personal equivalent of the polar bear plunge, and put up the yearly photo of me in a bathing suit, nay.. a bikini, and it's become one of my favorite traditions. It's like a starter gun to my spring/summer self esteem, which needs to top off at a higher level than my … [Read More...]
We love the sun.
We love the water.
We sometimes forget to shave that one strip on the back of our legs.
And we worry like hell about what the other women at the beach think of us, because the honest to God truth is, forget the men, we judge each other the hardest. There are entire … [Read More...]
I've been having car issues. Mechanically, my SUV was cherry. Logistically I wanted to light it on fire and push it into the pond. The problem is that I have three children in car seats on a single bench seat. So what, you ask?
Oh, you've never put a condom on a dude then tried to shove his balls … [Read More...]
Yesterday was not a pretty day. I was not feeling it. I was not feeling it at all.
I was getting ready for an event and none of my clothes were agreeing with me. Mountains of them all over the closet in protest. Big fucking piles of nope. And since I've been riding high on the lady emotion train, … [Read More...]
Someone just come over and put this damn Lunette menstrual cup inside me correctly. I don't have the will to figure it out, internet, I just don't. I tried youtube'ing it, but almost no one has a legitimate menstrual cup insertion video. They all puss out using champagne glasses or diagrams of the … [Read More...]

I had just finished the reprise of For The First Time in … [Read More...]
We've basically been stuck in our house since January 1st, and aside from the uncontrollable sobbing and eye twitching, it's been amazing. I'm like Sissy Spacek in Blast From The Past.
There's been constant rainbow looming, online shopping, minor home renovations, and it's also cleared the way … [Read More...]
I don't know about you, but I hate to have things all up on my neck. On top of that, I have a large chest, so high necklines- on top of choking me- are really unflattering.
Plus I like my sweatshirts with cleavage. I'll own that.
So, I have come up with a solution to the dreaded high neck … [Read More...]
Last week Gigi's midterm report came home informing me she recognized no letters or letter sounds, and she was unable to write her name. Which is weird because she definitely knew all those things going into her second year of preschool. A preschool that apparently bases it's curriculum on The … [Read More...]
When you are plus size and have self esteem issues, it's not uncommon to hate January 1st.
Once I eventually got past the dread of imminent resolution failure and looming hyper-inadequacy, I tabled New Years as nothing more than the passing of a calendar year. No more resolutions. No more … [Read More...]
