We did something. After years of cursing and complaining, we finally caved and hired a cleaning service.
And you know what!?!? Come to find out, it’s a dirty little secret that people don’t like to talk about because the minute I mentioned I was “in the market” a small majority of my friends group confessed they did the same thing… years ago. And they never looked back.
I don’t know what perplexes me more:
Today marks the mid-term election. Two years ago, red states put a doofus in power and we’ve watched a sad version of The Washington Apprentice. Only this is real life and real (innocent and defenseless) people are in jeopardy because 45 is a narcissist.
I don’t respect people who place personal gain ahead of collective growth nor do I admire assholes who rate their individual success by the zeroes in their foreign bank accounts.
I’ve got a topic to talk about and I’m curious how you feel. To do lists. Do you love them or loathe them?
I’ll never forget high school history class.

Hey, mamas. Talk to me about your morning routine. It seems that no matter what we try to do, getting out the door every morning with a toddler (and baby) in tow is a complete sh*t show.
Now I completely understand why a radio commercial (I forget the brand) asked, “Have you had a morning before your morning?” Yes. Oh my god, yes. I get it now.
Headlines like the one (below) make me giggle, and then awkwardly snort as I try to not spit out my go-go juice (coffee)… from literally laughing out loud.
Self-made Spanx billionaire Sara Blakey has never had coffee…
Let’s talk about hair, shall we?
It comes in different lengths, colors, textures, etc. We all have it (if we’re lucky). And it’s another thing that sometimes stresses me out when I’m gettin ready each morning.
Having kids does a number to your morning routine, especially if you have one nursing (meaning YOU are tied down for 30-45 minutes easy). So when a lady I’ve been following on Insta for YEARS resurrected her email marketing to announce a 30-day braiding challenge, I thought, “Why the hell not!?”
Please tell me I’m not alone. That other moms go from “zero Fs to give” to “holy hell the house needs to be burned to the ground it’s so gross” like a cork on a champagne bottle. 🍾
I can always tell when I’m about to go bananas 🍌 …
Neighbors. Either the biggest blessing or a nagging nuisance.
Thankfully 🙌🏼 ours are the former (a blessing), and have become a valuable source of sanity for me. We truly hit the jackpot in the neighbor department.
