Moved the website and other wonderfulness

Hello loved ones… I know… so dreary to think that the winter is not quite over. I feel that a bit of snow is pretty, in December and am so glad it doesn’t really come back. This post will be super short because there are things I need you to know. 1. Did I mention I write for Huffington Post? So funny and yet I somehow get away with my sense of humour. 2. I continue to enjoy writing for and editing Blunt Moms. I am so freakin’ proud of our writers and I love them with kisses…. well fake kisses because internet. 3. The “about to be famous” writer anthology is almost out, so pre-order if you can. I just want to be alone will be famous… it just will and I own five damned pages of it. 4. Have I mentioned that the world famous, ultra amazing Erma Bombeck Legacy site put up my funny bit? I know… I don’t care if I never do another thing… I just loved seeing me and my words on her site. 5. And finally, I am on this new website. Apparently I have been correct in moving over all the followers, but in the end I have no real idea what I am doing. If you get this post, leave me a little comment saying “Ablurb” or something. Just let me know you got it so I can sleep at night. Loving you so much…...
I Just Want to BE Alone! (The best book ever)

I Just Want to BE Alone! (The best book ever)

I would like to share the scoop on this amazing new book, and stay with me here and read to the end….. all will be revealed… but first, here is a commercial break: The second volume in the best-selling I Just Want to Pee Alone series! 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, Moms Who Drink and Swear, Baby Sideburns, A.K. Turner, My Husband Ate All My Ice Cream, and Bad Parenting Moments.  Read hilarious essays like: Open Letter To My Son (Or: Your Mother’s Top 10 List of Ways Not to Be a Douchebag Husband) Exploding With Love, Literally Romance is Overrated Life With the Thin Guy Dear Magnolia, Should I Marry This Man? Oh Wait… did you notice? I AM MAGNOLIA. Yes readers… all 43 of you who like my blog, I was chosen to contribute and I couldn’t be happier about it. It is a great honour to be selected among a very small group of people to submit a piece for the book, and then make the cut to be published. It is the bomb. I hope you will support the incredible writers who have worked so hard to be part of this book. For many of them, it isn’t their first time at the rodeo, but it was for me. Order a copy for yourself:  I Just Want to BE Alone Support all the blogs, big and small because writers give their hearts through their words. And thank you…     P.S. Stands for PUBLIC SERVICE, so here are all the bloggers who are in the book because they are some funny: People I Want to Punch in the Throat Moms Who Drink and Swear Baby Sideburns A.K. Turner My Husband Ate All My Ice Cream Bad Parenting Moments The Underachiever’s Guide to Being a Domestic Goddess The Ugly Volvo Let Me Start By Saying Motherhood, WTF? Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms Frugalista...
Erma Bombeck is my Hero

Erma Bombeck is my Hero

  I don’t know how many girls consumed Erma’s books in their teen years…. but I did. I loved how funny she was, and how comfortable her language made me feel. She wrote with kindness, yet she had that sharp and hilarious edge. She was smart, brilliant in fact. She was a blogger before there were  computers. She gave voice to the women through comedy. For the time, it was jarring, interesting and funny as hell. She was Erma. Ok now I am nerding out completely. I will calm myself. I found out that she has fans who preserve her memory, and develop humour writers in this modern world. They have a page for our writing, and contests for our best efforts. I love them for doing that, and sharing the special place in my heart for the original and still best comedian. Thank you for posting my funny little work: Little Boys with Hammers We miss you Erma.   Also find me on Blunt Moms and Huffington Post...
