If Another Person Tells Me I Should Have a Third Child

I will scream profanities at them!!! They need to spend one hour, just ONE HOUR with my 2.5 year old daughter and 5-month-old son, and they will never utter those words to me again.  The constant whining and crying is enough to make you want to pull your hair out.  My kids are now starting [...]

Easy Dinner Recipe: Shrimp Scampi with Linguini

IMG_0786

While I LOVE to bake, I really dislike cooking (loathe it, actually). But my friend made this pasta dish for me the other day and kindly forwarded this Food Network, Tyler Florence recipe to me. It was really easy to follow and surprisingly easy to make. Honestly, if I can cook this, you certainly can [...]

Communicate, communicate, communicate! Just Talk to Me!

Everyone knows that one of the key components in a relationship is communication. My husband and I are currently having difficutly in this department. Well, we’ve always had trouble in this area. I talk and nag too much, as he would say. And he doesn’t talk or share enough as I would say. Every time [...]

Being a Parent is the Hardest Thing I Have Ever Done

I am having one of those days where I just feel like I am a complete failure of a parent. My patience is wearing thin and I just don’t want to be around my kids. I resort to yelling at my (almost) 2.5 year-old and feel like a total shit afterwards. I can’t take myself [...]

Nap Time Means Nap Time!!!

Why does my husband always feel the need to take our daughter to the store or run an errand right around her nap time?  A couple of weeks ago, he says, “I’ll take her to Babies ‘R Us and we’ll be right back.”  This was around noon, her usual nap time.  I warned him that [...]

How To Lose the Baby Weight …

My baby is now a month old and I really need to stop eating like I’m still pregnant.  The Easter candies and celebration cakes and baked goods have been calling out to me to consume them!  I haven’t been able to resist the temptation which is why I have barely lost any of the baby [...]

Some Things Never Change … Or Can They???

I am extremely frustrated with my husband right now.  It’s about a week from the dreadful tax day and we still have not done our taxes yet!  What’s worse is that we’re estimated to receive a refund.   When I was about 8 months pregnant, I asked my husband to please do our taxes before [...]

The Calm Before the Storm???

CA Sunshine

I feel like I’ll be jinxing myself by saying this, but, at 38.5 weeks pregnant, I’m feeling pretty good.  No back aches or the dreaded evil crotch pain (scientific term I believe is “symphysis pubic dysfunction”).  I even woke up today not feeling the least bit sleepy.  Even my rambunctious almost-2-year-old is behaving very well.  [...]

AT&T, fool me once…

So we recently switched our Internet provider from AT&T Internet to AT&T U-verse.  Why?  I don’t know.  We keep getting these notices in the mail from AT&T that they’re switching all their customers over to U-verse and we needed to call in to switch ASAP so as not to disrupt our current service. When I [...]

Plumbing issues… need I say more?

Our home has the worst plumbing issues.  Is it the drain or is my husband?  Haha.  I think its mostly the husband!  We have 3 toilets and it’s always the one in our master bath that gets backed up.  After 2 weeks of trying to fix it out himself (a la tutorials on YouTube), the [...]
