Better Things – Laugh, Don’t Pull Your Hair Out!

Long days, late nights, endless to-do lists — do these things sound familiar? Do certain situations make you feel like screaming into your pillow? Do Better Things call you?

Better Things – Laugh, Don’t Pull Your Hair Out!

A mom you can relate to on the FX Network

 

If you are a mom, you bet they do! Stumbling through days with little-to-no sleep, but still managing to drive carpool, go to work, give homework help, take care of household chores, nurse your little sickies, and get dinner on the table doesn’t leave you much “me” time. As a mom, you are always sacrificing for your children, and you wouldn’t have it any other way, but you are still, YOU. So, let your style and personality shine, and get ready for Better Things.

 

Being exhausted at the end of the day, and knowing you have that last load of laundry you have to finish (because your daughter swears she’ll die if she doesn’t have that outfit to wear to school the next day), can make you want to pull your hair out. Well, stop pulling and start laughing!

Better Things, a NEW comedy series created by Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon for FX Network airs Thursdays at 10PM. Every mom will relate to Adlon’s character, Sam, a single mother raising three daughters. Like any mom, Sam wears many hats — mom, dad, referee, and the cops.

Watch pieces of your life unfold on screen as Sam navigates motherhood, a job, and a wannabe social life with little-to-no filter. Rory and I found ourselves smirking and laughing at some of the scenes that could have come straight from our lives. I guarantee you will have your own life moments flooding back to memory. Feel the validation! Roll your eyes with frustration. Love the heartwarming moments. Snicker at the hilarity.  Enjoy the triumphs. And realize you are not alone. Get together with your girlfriends and watch Better Things.

TGIF – It’s Been A Rough Week

TGIF – It’s Been A Rough Week

You know it’s been a rough week when Monday was the best day of said week. Tuesday was by far the worst–my suburban was broken into. I was the lucky one according to the police. Apparently, there was a rash of automotive break-ins Monday night. I was the only one who did not actually have anything stolen out of a victimized vehicle (probably because I don’t keep anything valuable in it). I had a huge mess to clean up, but there was no actual damage to my truck. Even so, it is amazing just how violated you feel when something like this happens to you, especially when it happens overnight in your own driveway. Rory and I have been pretty shaken.

Needless to say, my brain has been elsewhere and coming up with a creative blog post that required a lot of time and effort was just not happening this week. So, I settled in with a glass of wine and had a bit of fun on Pinterest. I thought I’d share a few Friday Funnies with you in hopes these put a smile on your face. Enjoy!

TGIF – I am so ready…

Embarrassing Moments of a Naïve Child Grown…

I live in the house in which I grew up. So, when we had the flood at Christmastime it forced me to empty my mother’s hutch in the dining room. My mother used every possible nook and cranny of that hutch for not only china, but also little bits of memorabilia—including some papers that we found shoved behind the drawers. We were in such a rush trying get things moved out of the area for repairs that we just placed everything into boxes and did not look at stuff too closely  (that project would come later).

Fast forward to months later as I was cleaning and refilling the hutch. I found a treasure that immediately made me blush, laugh so hard I had tears streaming down my face, and wonder just how on earth I survived and managed to raise a family—my Pre-Test For Sex Education!

I am sure my mother was watching from heaven and getting a good laugh herself. She knew she had saved that test for a good reason. Rory and Luke completely enjoyed my naïveté, and I decided it would share it with you.

Believe me, I did finally figure it out! Obviously, I had a one-time spur of dyslexia and switched my answers for male and female…Oh, Lordy…

It just goes to show you how very different life was then. Children were allowed to be children. They did not have sex and violence stuffed down their throats at every turn of the TV dial (and yes, I do mean turn, we did not have a remote for the TV yet), flip of a magazine page, and graphic video gaming was not an option. Times were simpler and in some ways maybe better, but finding this treasure brought back a piece of that time, and we are all thankful for it.

Have you had something from your childhood crop up and make you laugh? Write a post and link it to this one, or tell me about it in a comment.
