All I Wanted Was A Pedicure

Damn, my toenails are looking kind of funky. I need to go to the nail salon. I’ll definitely go this weekend.

Okay, I’ll go no later than next Wednesday.

If he needs me to pick up his dry cleaning, I got it. If he wants steak for dinner, I can accommodate that request. If he wants me to do his expense report from his last business trip, I can knock it out in no time. But when he proposes something completely outrageous, sometimes, I have to put my foot down.

Un-hirable Mom

I’m struggling, ya’ll. (I openly admitted to not being able to pull off ya’ll awhile back, but damn it, I’m no quitter.) Having never finished college, (a story for another day) I have been a stay-at-home parent for 13 years....Read More
