Multitasking Fails


I fail at least one time every day. Don’t let anyone know. From trying to water my flowers while shaving my legs, I can have 100 things to do and I want to feel accomplished by completing them. I’m feeling pretty productive this morning so my goal is to save the world while mopping my…

Cat-tastrophe


My 21 year -old daughter said she liked my snarky but painfully honest advice posts and thought they were funny. She said this while sober, so I believe her. Since she is always sober, it is not just a detox moment. Since I’m adept at dishing out the advice that I have no intention of…

Basic AF Baking 101


I’m not exactly what you would call Betty Crocker or even Martha Stewart- before or after her prison stint (or friendship with Snoop. ) It’s just not my thing . I guess it’s not a big deal that I’m not- until it’s time to do it. Why do I always volunteer for things that I…

FORE !


In trying to downplay my basic af status , I’ve picked up a new hobby . I’m learning to play golf . I won’t lie about it . The cute golf clothes were at first my motivating factor . Fashion is as good a reason as any to try new things . I’m what you…

You Had One Job


I’m a little disappointed . Our good friends had a baby. A beautiful baby girl and a perfect small human. How great is that?It’s absolutely amazing and we are so happy for them.Except I feel like I was let down.All the way down. It’s a wasted opportunity for your last name to be Ray when…

Duped by Myself Again


Starting a blog was supposed to be therapeutic for me . I’m not going to lie, it hasn’t been . It was supposed to be a way for me to express myself with a mindful audience and to make a connection with others who can relate . It was supposed to replace social media and…

Home -Brew Brouhaha


Today instead of being the unenthusiastic, apathetic helper of the brewmaster (my husband), I am the boss of the beer. Meaning I am doing my best to be a good steward of this secret and revered beer society . It’s hard for me to focus on this project. There’s a lot of sitting around waiting…

Do you know how to spell? Are you from Texas? Then grab a Lone Star , your spit cup and covered wagon and join me for the first annual “Texans can spell “campaign . Again for the foreigners ( anyone who is not Texan ), I’ll texanize this so ya’ll get it. I’m sorry I…

Calling All Kinfolk


I was lamenting my lack of suitably hilarious and interesting matters to bore you with when my mom dropped a bit of lmfao my way . I know everyone has that family member who struggles with social media and we all let them . Don’t lie. I now have one too but he’s funnier than…

Today at Walmart


I learn the most interesting things at Wal-Mart. I guess I’m not very good at stopping the “too much information ”  train-wreck . I don’t want to seem rude when they obviously want to share something with me . Today I learned the allergies of my checker. Now I know that a Hawaiian ginger , vanilla…

Minor Annoyances, Part One


We all know that one person (or two, three or twenty ) that no matter what you have done, their response to your impressiveness is similar to this: f (x) = 2x Yes, I’m talking about that very special cupcake of a person who is basically an expert in absolutely everything from tying shoelaces to…
