I’m sure you’ve been wondering what I’ve been doing while recovering from surgery. Mostly 4 things….

1. Trying to untwist one of those double layered tops from the cult store Justice. If you don’t have tween girls – let me explain. They sell these tops that are really 2 shirts but sewn together at the shoulder. So after you wash and dry it, the 2 tops are twisted together like a Rubik’s cube. It’s maddening…


2. I’ve also been trying to trademark “This Sick Beat” before Taylor Swift. But she beat me to it. She even trademarked another one of her lyrics, “Party like it’s 1989!” which really sucks because that was my new life motto and I just had it tattooed over my belly button.

3. I also started an epic letter writing campaign to prevent Ray Romano from marrying Sarah on the series finale of “Parenthood.” While everyone was stocking up on tissues for the final show of this at times depressing but very well done drama, I was trying to urgently prevent the inevitable joining of Hank and Sarah in matrimony.


The couple has zero on screen chemistry and they should just let her marry Adam Braverman who plays her brother but is actually her boyfriend in real life. A sibling marriage would really shake things up in the final episode.

Anyway, the finale just aired and obviously my letter writing campaign was a bust.  Mostly because the only people who wrote letters were me and some sibling marriage advocate out in Duluth.

But the finale was very sweet and well done. And of course sad. Mostly sad because of Drew’s little mustache but other stuff too. But I really liked the FNL Jason Street cameo in one of the last scenes.  If only they had worked in Coach Taylor too.

4. Finally, I also wrote a few articles on Lifetime Moms like why parents really dread making school lunches

And why there is no point moving to France now because you won’t be allowed to name your kid Nutella

I hope these cheer you up from your “Parenthood” is over blues.

    Hysterical crying from beginning to end…the only possible way to conclude this awesome show.
    Ps ugh though yes, bummed your letter writing campaign did not work. He is the worst.

  • Steph says:

    I think school lunches are the devil’s work . . . or something like that. I also wanted Sarah to get back with John Ritter’s son:) Hope you are fully recovered. Kudos to you on getting help from your children!

    • Laura says:

      Me too! I was going to comment to this effect but I couldn’t think of a short and sweet way to say it. Mr. Cyr was the BEST! Can’t stand Ray Romano. So whiny.

  • Jen says:

    I meant to write you the other day that I hope you are healing nicely and perhaps enjoying a bit of R&R. Also, I have to mention that I’ve been binge-watching The Good Wife b/c it’s always on everyone’s top 10 lists. If you haven”t seen it, it’s not bad. A bit formulaic but great actors, etc. Being home sick with Luke all week, let’s just say we’ve watched a lot of Good Wife, so much so that I’m now labeled Bad Wife by the hubs for ignoring all other aspects of my life!
    Hope to see you guys next time in NYC!

    I hate making lunches. I have four boys and don’t feel like dropping two hundred a month on school lunches, either, so I make them. Several years back I had had it with making lunches. I taught the kids to make their own sandwiches. This was met with such enthusiasm and appreciation of the responsibility that I was giving them (“Why am I the ONLY kid in the second grade who has to make his own lunch?!?” “Because I don’t want your future wife to hate me.”) I thought things were going swimmingly. Well, at least I wasn’t making lunches, so for me it was going pretty well. About a month into the process I watched son #2 pack his lunch. He grabbed a ziplock baggie. Then he grabbed a cold, raw, uncooked, nitrate filled hot dog. He put the dog in the bag, sealed it and put it in his reusable lunch sack. Done. Oh my gosh. I’m not a big fan of ending up on school Christmas lists unnecessarily or getting visits from our friends at CPS. He had been doing this for a month! Well played, kiddo. I’m back to making sandwiches. They’re responsible for the rest (of the stuff that’s going to rot at the bottom of their bag).

    I loathe making school lunches. I don’t have kids. I hate making them for myself and they often are lousy. I need a mom to make them for me. Obviously. And yes I work at a school. The cafeteria is often referred to as the Crapateria, so not really an option. Too expensive anyway.

  • Misty says:

    I enjoyed their storyline (hank and sarah) only because of the Aspergers angle… maybe that’s why it seemed there was no chemistry…
    but yes, that mustache, oye…
