Happy weekend, all! I am bracing myself for another snow day alone with my two girls while my husband goes in to help out the City. Guess I better dig out your suggestions from last time…or a big bottle of wine…or both.
In case you missed anything, here is what I was up to in the virtual world last week. The theme for last week’s posts was: Posts that I’m afraid you’re going to hate. Enticing, no?
First, I vented my frustrations with I Am From Venus, Your Head Is Up Uranus: 6 Differences Between Men and Women. That went over like gangbusters. Stay tuned for my public apology to my husband.
Then I took the tone down quite a few notches and talked about how the death of my high school classmate impacted me with How Becoming a Parent Has Changed My Perception Of Loss.
Next I wasted far too much precious time making a cutesy graphic thing for my post, Paging Dr. Mom: How Parenthood Is Like Becoming a Doctor. I also pulled a bunch of stuff out of my hiney and speculated on what it would be like to actually train to become a doctor. Thanks, Grey’s Anatomy, for the inspiration.
I co-hosted Finish the Sentence Friday again yesterday and was a total slacker who recycled an old post to avoid writing about food on the heels of my food poisoning incident.
If you would like to hear me whine some more about my ear infection, partial deafness, and food poisoning, not to mention the inappropriate language I used (twice) at the doctor’s office, head on over and check out my post with The Epistolarians from this week.
I shared evidence of my household disorder on Mommy for real, Facebook page. (I know- you can follow me there, too, and enjoy all sorts of goodies like these!)
Oh, in other news, after writing an impassioned post months back about how I would not join Pinterest, I just joined Pinterest. Sue me. Or follow me here, but don’t expect anything very inspirational until I figure out what the heck I am doing.
And then…my book arrived in the mail!
Huge thanks to those of you who supported me by picking up a copy of the anthology I was published in, Anything Prose…and Poetry, Too! Oh, you didn’t hear about that yet? Of course you can still get a copy right here! (I promise, I am done talking about it now.)

Enjoy the weekend, and don’t forget to set your clocks ahead for Daylight Savings, every parent’s favorite time of year! I never thought I’d see the day, but I’m actually looking forward to it. I am beyond tired of both the kids waking up at 5:53 a.m. every day.
Sounded like a pretty good week, but can totally relate being in a bit of hot water when I share some of my husband’s antics on my blog. Trust me been there and one that, but I can’t help but use my space to vent sometimes (hey at least it keeps me sane!!). Congrats again on the book and happy to have you on Pinterest, too!! 🙂
WHOO HOO for joining Pinterest!! (I follow you there already!)
Just ordered a copy of your book right this minute!! It is set to arrive on Wednesday! As soon as it does, I’m reading it and posting a review praising you! (I already know I’m going to love your contribution!) Congratulations on the book!! 🙂 –Lisa
“Knowing me” like you do, you will likely not be shocked when I tell you that I almost cried when I read that you bought the book. Seriously. Funnily enough, I bought yours today, too! I’m going to flip straight to your chapter! (I haven’t made it through my whole anthology yet. 🙂 I am on page 80, FYI. ) BIG THANKS! I am so glad I can follow you on Pinterest and copy you ladies to make myself look less like an idiot! 😉 xoxo
nice dynamics (for a 7 day period)…drama, suspense, comedic relief…outraged relatives (lol)
(I have only done one Post with my wife ‘named’, could I be over-looking a total resource?)
Published! damn, that cannot be anything less than totally cool!
(I followed your directions and followed you on ‘the Pinterest’*… but I will admit that, despite having an account, I do not have a clue how to use it…other than I have ‘Boards’ for Friends of the Doctrine where I pin Posts…when the link available).
*the secret for never being mistaken for a young(er) person is to always stick the article ‘the’ in front of everything
No, you’re wrong…adding “the” in front of everything is evidence of one’s coolness and intellectual superiority. Plus, it’s funny. 🙂 Thanks for your kind words, Clark!
I missed that tweet so I’m so glad you posted it here! FUNNY. I’m writing about how bad it sucked to have a snow day this past Wednesday. Should be up tomorrow.
And you are too adorable holding your book! 🙂
Happy Sunday, pal!
Thanks, friend! And Happy Sunday to you, too! Glad you joined the wrap-up club. It’s what all the cool kids are doing. So I’ve been told.
Uh-oh. The apology will be interesting, to say the least.
I didn’t see your doctor post. My inbox is overwhelming me, so I’m going to check it our from here.
I don’t know how I miss all this stuff on FB. I don’t know how FB works. I cannot figure it out! I feel like there are all these updates of people I’m following somewhere out there beyond my reach. I did see that picture of your table and cracked up. Had to share that onto my FB page. Sooo funny!
