I Just Want to Be Perfect is the fourth book in the bestselling I Just Want to Pee Alone series. It brings together 37 hilarious and relatable essays that showcase the foibles of ordinary women trying to be perfect.

The cult of perfection is a thing. As women, we are constantly inundated with "helpful" and/or "ah-may-zing" tips to improve our looks, please our men, raise the next Einstein (in a wheat-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free environment), and feng shui the crap out of our homes. Whether it's the hot new diet that involves only eating what you can forage from the floor of your minivan, bleaching everything from your hair to your teeth to...other parts of your anatomy, or clearing your clutter by mindfully thanking your ratty underwear for its long, dedicated service before you toss them, we've all tried something to be more perfect. We all try strive for perfection and balance in our lives, and most of us fail—spectacularly. These are those stories.

ITUNES: Link coming soon.

The sequel to the #1 best-selling I Just Want To Pee Alone is here!

Don't get us wrong, we love the men in our lives – we do (most of the time). It's just that sometimes we would like them to go away. Not forever or anything like that. Just for an hour…or a day…or a weekend. We want some time to ourselves to read a good book or take a walk or do anything other than try to make a dent in the never ending mound of dirty clothes that keeps piling up on his side of the bed. We just want to be alone. All alone. Is that too much to ask?
I Just Want to Be Alone is a collection of humorous essays from 37 of the most Super Cool Lady Writers you'll find on the web. Including: People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Baby Sideburns, A.K. Turner, My Husband Ate All My Ice Cream, and Bad Parenting Moments.

Now, that's what the Amazon page says. In actuality, you'll find a pretty big variety of essays about all kinds of men in our live—yes, husbands, but also boyfriends and sons. Some of whom (like my husband, he'd like me to point out) even do laundry! AND, the essays aren't all about getting time away from men either, shockingly enough.

My essay, for example, is about a little adventure Gerry and I had that actually brought us closer together, even though I humiliated myself and ugly-cried throughout most of the experience. And no, it's not a bedroom story, so you can go right ahead and get your mind out of the gutter.

You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth
“You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth” (August 2013), is a hilarious collection of true tales by women, for women, about being women—bodily changes, relationships, careers, motherhood, aging, illness, and more—written with the humor and grit that proudly sets In The Powder Room apart.

It immediately became an Amazon #1 Hot New Release, and people are raving about it. Maybe that's because it's making people laugh so hard they spit beverages out of their noses, or maybe because they can relate to having gimpy boobs and hating glittery crafts. Who am I to say? I just know it's funny, and people are loving it, and I'm loving them loving it.

That's a lotta love, and a lotta laughs. 39 of your favorite humorists have contributed their funniest stories about the joys, hardships, ridiculousness, and the laughter that comes with being a woman.

We are your friends, sisters, mothers, and daughters. Regardless of what life has dished up for you, chances are, we’ve been there and we can relate. We’ll help you laugh it off, or hold your hand until you’re ready to laugh again.

And we promise: we’ll always tell you when you have lipstick on your teeth.

Motherhood is the toughest – and funniest – job you'll ever love. Raising kids is hard work. The pay sucks, your boss is a tyrant, and the working conditions are pitiful – you can't even take a bathroom break without being interrupted with another outrageous demand.

Including: ME! and People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Insane in the Mom-Brain, The Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva, Baby Sideburns, Rants From Mommyland, and many more.

Here's the part where I tease you with some of the essay titles, like:
Babies: As Easy as 1, 2, 3!
Embarrassment, Thy Name is Motherhood
A Pinterest-Perfect Mom, I am Not
So She Thought She Could Cut Off My Stroller
And Then There was that Time a Priest Called Me a Terrible Mother
Sounds good, doesn't it? Want a copy?

I think that's all of it now. If you have any questions, just send me an email!

Obviously, I hope you buy the books and enjoy them! If you do like them (or hate them, even) I'd really appreciate it if you could go back to where you bought them (Amazon or B&N) and leave a review. This helps me more than you know! Seeeeriously!

Also, if (unlike me) you have friends, I'd love for you to tell one of them about these books. It could be your bestie or your neighbor, or a co-worker you casually meet at the water cooler - it's a much more interesting topic than the weather, anyway - just someone who likes to laugh. I promise you, they won't be disappointed. Just one more person would make my day.

And finally, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I really can't believe this day is here, and I'm beyond grateful to all of you—you've truly helped make this possible for me. Smooches all around.

I hope you enjoyed yourself while you were here - and I hope you come back! Please share inappropriate giggles with me on Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook, or subscribe via email so you don't miss a thing!
