Hopeless Mom*Antics – Blogger Recognition Award Nominee!

Hopeless Mom*Antics: Blogger Recognition Award Nominee! Thanks to fellow blogger Jennevie Corre, HM*AB has been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award!  Corre, a mother herself, admittedly relates entirely too much to HM*AB’s tagline… when laughing alone maniacally isn’t enough.  Also like me, she, too, is immersed full-time […]

That Time I Got 86 Donuts at Dunkin

That Time I Got 86 Donuts at Dunkin

This just happened. I just had a fabulous mom’s night out with the Lakewood Ranch Moms Group. On the way home, I asked my husband– who took on the performance of putting Declan to sleep tonight– if he wanted me to pick him up anything. […]

WHAT WOULD YOU DO #1

WHAT WOULD YOU DO #1

It’s been a couple weeks now, but I’m still waiting for John Quinones to pop out with a camera crew and interview me about my decision… So one of the most ridiculous things I had to do two weeks ago in preparation for Hurricane Irma […]

Dragonflies

Dragonflies

“Do one thing every day that scares you.” Well, I’m anxious by nature, which causes me to worry and fear things more than others would.  Does that make me an overachiever? As a mom now, it’s even worse.  I’m scared of everything.  Everything makes me […]

Dear Once-Full Palm Tree, All I did was ask my husband to remove the little ugly shrubs to the left of your beautiful palms that so wonderfully decorate our front yard. Well, they’re gone, Tree. But you are, too. Hubs, as unexpected, went above and […]

secretly terrified of Uber

Let me start by saying that I think the benefits of Uber– when its service is used ideally– are numerous. The concept of Uber, however, somewhat outright horrifies me. I’m sure there’s a background check required, right?  But don’t they also say, “there’s a first […]

the intimate frog

the intimate frog

*one year ago today, pre-blog…* I needed a full day to recuperate and stop shaking before I could share my story. Now that I finally find it to be (A LITTLE) funny and not utterly horrifying, I hope others will share in the hilarity. Yesterday, […]

today’s CDs?

today’s CDs?

what do you call a CD these days?  Record? Album? LP? Compilation? Most people get their songs from Apple iTunes and such nowadays, right?  Maybe there’s something cooler and I’m clueless.  I came of age in the Napster era.  I’m used to succumbing to the […]
