Several kinds of stuff, all wrapped up

Okay, this isn't a weekly wrap-up. It's another random collection of things I wrote and stuff I loved, with little to no consideration for how many actual weeks have passed. I hereby solemnly vow that I will either A) start actually writing these weekly or B) rename the Weekly Wrap-Up to something more accurate, like the Monthly Mash-up, or the Every Three Weeks Or So Review of Stuff, or Approximately 30 Days of Things I Done Did.

Or I'll do neither of those things, because I'm lazy (obviously).

Whether weekly or once per fiscal quarter, no wrap-up is complete without a mention of my breastular food bags - I got all sentimental about their new-found uselessness on In The Powder Room.

Then I blew the lid CLEAN OFF of mom-shaming, by revealing the real reason mothers seem to suck. In the process of doing so, I made an ass of myself for the amusement of my neighbors by posing at the front door, clutching a set of pearls that I was supposed to be pricing for a garage sale.

I wrote an apology to my kid's locker, followed by some (actual) information:

  • How to make a cool locker kit so your child is prepared for (almost) anything that could come up at school - also makes a fantastic teacher gift!
  • 10 can't miss homework tips for keeping kids organized, focused and efficient so you can get back to more important things, like telling them to get off the computer 


Even my own mother could barely believe it when I announced I was going to bust out of my anti-social shell and co-host an I Just Want To Pee Alone Day ladies' night out, but I'm so excited! We're having a great response - grab your friends, your co-workers and that lady down the street who seems pretty cool and check out the details here - RSVP so we can join together in an excuse to take time for ourselves and go hang with the girls on a Wednesday night!

If you don't live anywhere near here, check out the post for links to other events across the country that night. And speaking of I Just Want To Pee Alone, you can enter this Goodreads giveaway to win one of 10 copies!


My lovely friend Johi from Confessions of a Cornfed Girl wrote a post on Babble about bloggers and their pets! It's sweet, and funny, and she was kind enough to include my cat even though I could only think of a few nice things to say about him, and most of those were sarcastic.

Some really funny bloggers and I were interviewed by Care.com about Halloween; if you want a giggle at our expense, check out our own biggest costume fails and the worst kid costumes we ever forced on our poor children.

Speaking of funny, I was thrilled to be chosen for Huffington Post's Funniest Tweets of the week for THREE WEEKS - here, here and here - and by NickMom for their Funniest Tweets here!
