I think I will always remember 2018 for the arguing. People found a LOT to argue about this year, didn’t they? We argued about big topics like racism, immigration, gun control, politics, and sexual harassment. And we argued about little things, like whether Justin is still in love with Selena, Target’s Fall 2018 fashion choices, […]

Let’s Argue About Celebrating Christmas Before Thanksgiving! On Second Thought, Let’s Not.

Halloween is a strange holiday when you think about it. Young, innocent children are encouraged to douse themselves in fake blood, dress like monsters or tarts-in-training and take candy from strangers, while grown women run around in costumes only a prostitute could love. It’s definitely not the natural order of things. Typically, the cane wavers […]

Here’s Proof Halloween a Century Ago was Just as Freaky

Target isn’t my favorite place to shop for clothes, but it’s hard to resist checking out the women’s clothing section when I’m there. Sometimes, I’ll find something cute and on trend at a good price — but this season, things seem to have taken a turn. I knew something very strange was happening at Target […]

Things Have Gotten Super Weird in the Target Women’s Department

My husband and I have this inside joke that’s not at all funny. Any time we find a new product that we REALLY like and are REALLY excited about, we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it’s only a matter of time before it’s discontinued. It’s happened so often that we’ve almost managed […]

Discontinued and It Feels So Bad

A few years ago, I started noticing the word YETI everywhere I turned  — plastered on the back windows of newer-model SUVs, printed across the chests of present, past, and future frat boys, and boldly emblazoned on the insulated coffee mugs of Hunter boot-wearing soccer moms. As far as I could tell, the YETI logo was […]

YETI. Why?

  If you spend any time at all on Nashville’s park trails and greenways, you know they come with a major drawback: A whole lot of people who use them don’t think their dog needs to be on a leash. There are so many reasons why this is a bad idea, both for the off-leash […]

Should Your Dog Be On a Leash? This FAQ Will Help You Decide.

Last weekend, I took my daughter to the mall so that she could go shopping with her friends. I hadn’t been to a mall in a while, so I figured it would be a good time to check out the latest trends for fall before I decide what to buy this season. What happened next […]

I Just Went Shopping at the Mall and Now I Am So Confused

There are some elementary school moments I always want to remember. There are others I can’t wait to forget. I still remember my oldest stepdaughter’s final year of elementary school. Everything she did that year was treated in our family as a Major Milestone, requiring all of us to drop what we were doing and […]

Goodbye, Elementary School. I Won’t Miss You.

Dear Dumbasses, Every so often, one of your wack-a-doo rooftop pictures pops up on my feed and gives me the sweats. For too long, I’ve suffered through your photos in silence — but then I realized that every single one of you fools has a mom somewhere way, way down below, a mom who probably […]
