The Ten-Step Commandments – Part 2 STFU

Passover hasn’t passed you over yet (see what I did there?) In honor of Passover we are continuing our 10 episode series of the deathbed commandments (read: morbid) I hope to pass on to my daughters and my demented listeners. I was having a wonderful before-bed conversation with my older daughter (I have to enjoy them while they last) and thought about what life lessons I want to pass on to them in order to retain my Mother-of-the-Year status. This {Read More}

The Ten-Step Commandments – Part 1 Grateful Universe

In honor of Passover (and my honey’s favorite Cecil B DeMille movie) I offer to you these Ten Commandments.  I was having a wonderful before-bed conversation with my older daughter (I have to enjoy them while they last) and thought about what life lessons I want to pass on to them in order to retain my Mother-of-the-Year status. This 10-podcast series is a love letter to my 2 girls.  I say shit all the time and I know they aren’t {Read More}

Boom Boom Shake Shake the Room!

There are three words that this girl lives to hear.  That’s right…Pakistan, Magnesium and Iodine.  I used to think that maybe 2 of them were places that you can only get to by plane and one is something you put on cuts for some reason.  As I get older (read: wiser) I have come to appreciate that actually 1 of them is a place where something is mined and 2 of them are the mine-ees (miners, minors, ??).  That’s right {Read More}

Doggy Style in the Kitchen

I love my kids, I love my husband, but there will always be a special love I have for my dogs. Since I started down this crazy eco-road feeding my dogs has completely changed since I first became a dog owner many moons ago. Hubby loves to make the now famous comment “these dogs eat better than I do” and to be honest, he’s not completely wrong. You’ve heard us talk about feeding ourselves, well now listen in as we {Read More}

There’s nothing tighter than a budget

There are certain things in this world I despise…mullets, dog walkers who dont pick up, critics of the movie Xanadu. But the tip-top of my list is grocery shopping, I’d rather play the rusty trombone (look it up) than spend more than 3 minutes in aisle 5. My hubby for some strange reason positively loves it, he says he finds it relaxing…whatever, i married him for his package, not his shopping skills. Since I began my (our) organic journey I have a pretty good idea which foods to buy organic and those wher it’s not necessary. So, before hubby comes home with another $400 dollar grocery bill and 3 bags of groceries I thought I’d give him, and you, this refresher on where being a smart eco-friendly shopper matters most.

Driving Miss Dirty

One of our favorite bands from the 80s was The Cars, this week’s podcast has absolutely nothing to do with them.  After a glass or two (sorry I misspelled bottle) I may find myself standing on the bed singing “Greased Lightning” or god help us “Let’s Bowl, Let’s Bowl, Let’s Rock ‘n Roll”.  That’s right, there were 2 Grease movies…but this episode isn’t about them either.  Instead we are here to answer the Top 5 burning (ointment, please) questions regarding {Read More}

The Most Valuable Cheat Sheet You Never Knew About

I’m going to tell you a story about a story…or in this case a book. I read a lot of books.  It’s not unusual for my hubby to find me passed out in bed (empty wine glass next to me like a loyal soldier) with a book still open in my lap.  Some of my guilty pleasures have been “Nature’s Nether Regions”, “Safe Haven”, “Does the Soul Survive?”, “Everyone Poops” or once for some international flavor,  the Scottish tale of {Read More}

Where do mommys and daddys come from?

In a twist on the birds and the bees conversation our kids have often asked how me and the hubby first met. To be honest the explanation we gave them was a bit more g-rated than the explanation you’re getting. But like all other great super-teams (The X-Men, The Avengers, The Goonies, Luke & Laura) we all have our origin story.

Welcome to Douchebagistan, Population: ME!

Let’s start 2017 with some definitions Goals: The result or achievement toward which effort is directed; aim; end Selfish: Devoted to or caring only for oneself; concerned primarily with one’s own interests, benefits, welfare, etc., regardless of others. Liquor: How a male animal cleans his mate (ok, that one might be a bit of a stretch, but I was on a roll) Well, so now that 2016 has finished kicking our ass I’m looking forward to my life in 2017. {Read More}

The Bride and the Grooming

I’ve given him “moist” & “panties”, not to be confused with moist panties. There are a few words that even creep him out so tonight I get my revenge.
