I’m not really a sit back and do nothing kind of girl. In fact, I seriously super suck at doing nothing. Which is why recovering from abdominal surgery has been an unhappy time for me.

Now almost three weeks out, I was making progress until I pushed myself too far and I don’t want to blame anyone but…

this kid might have had something to do with it.

So I’ve been a bit tortured by the pain again.  I’m dealing with it by obsessively watching “The Good Wife.” I’m now on Season 2 and still waiting for Alicia to throw her hair back in a ponytail. How can you wear your hair down and an Ann Taylor suit every moment of your life?! But I love the show so whoever recommended it, you’re awesome.

Please no “Good Wife” spoilers. Well, you can tell me if she ever wears a ponytail.

I’ve also been clicking on ridiculous links like… “80s Stars You Won’t Recognize Today.” And they aren’t kidding. Remember Kelly McGillis from “Top Gun?”


This is her today…


Say what?! Would you ever recognize her? I’m thinking it might really be Annie Lennox.

Things have not be easy for my husband Rick. He’s had to handle the bulk of the kids, the house, and his job. But he seems to be okay.  Except for when I found him googling “boarding schools for toddlers.” Apparently they don’t exist. Which is ridiculous.

So while you’re mulling over the possibility of starting the Princeton Academy for High Spirited Toddlers, you can also find me here…

I’m talking about school uniforms on Alpha Mom. Are uniforms the devil or our savior?!

And on Lifetime moms, I’m writing about a barbershop that will give an old man haircut to naughty kids. Definitely funny. Definitely public humiliation.

    I’m with you. I don’t do nothing well. Hubby on the other hand could do nothing for the rest of his life… easily.

    omigoodness on the humiliating haircut. I like my daughter’s having to wear a uniform. She doesn’t like it but she doesn’t make a big deal out of it. So sorry you are in pain. Wishing you a quick recovery.

    Feel better. I recently saw Alan Cumming & Emma Stone in Cabaret on Broadway. I had never seen The Good Wife, but omg, I’m a huge Alan Cumming fan now! And Helen Mirrin was sitting in front of me! (See don’t you miss NY now?? 😉 But, I don’t mean to sound all My Life Is So Fun…I am a mom of twins too and work f/t outside the home and I never ever get out, this was a total fluke thing that I even went. It was still fun nonetheless. Feel better & rest up!!
