I don’t have much for you today. Give me a break. I have two kids failing out of middle school (actually, my son’s doing well – it only takes me three hours a night to do his homework with him), care for two very demanding kitties (you would not believe how demanding these kitties can be), keep one beta fish alive, keep this house afloat, write a stupid book, take a class, submit work to other media, read a bazillion blogs a day, post and read multiple Facebook and Twitter feeds (I gave up on Pintrest – who has time?), run my kids around to CCD, Tae Kwon Do, guitar and whatever else they can dream up, and also have a life (ok, I gave up on that last on, too). Do you know, you can’t accomplish that in 6 hours? Oh and squeeze in some time to run to the gym so I don’t become obese from eating all the Halloween candy I bought at Costco a month early because my daughter suggested it, and it sounded like a good idea at the time because we were going to need it, and in my neighborhood I need multiple 10 pound sacks of candy to satisfy the never-ending stream of miniature ghosts and goblins because we have way too many kids over here.
So here’s some free advice from what I’ve learned recently.

Smart people probably know this, but I made this mistake, and now I have to live with the regret. And the extra 10 pounds I’ve gained. I’m actually eating Halloween candy as I type because this post reminded me of all the delicious Almond Joys and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups just sitting over there, lonely and tasty, in the pantry. Damn it.
Here’s another tip that has nothing to do with Halloween but does have to do with kids.
I just thought of a brand new social networking tool for the kids…are you ready for it? It’s called, “outside”. — Will Ferrell (@WillyFerrell) October 5, 2013
That’s what I’ve been saying, but nobody wanted to listen to me. All the sudden Will Ferrell says it, and everybody’s all “That’s brilliant!” It should have been me, Will Ferrel. It should have been meeee.
Speaking of kids:
My 10 y.o. son just told me I’m wasting his time. — OneFunnyMotha (@OneFunnyMotha) October 3, 2013
I think that was in response to my telling him to go outside and play. Instead, he Minecrafted on his computer while I tweeted on mine.
This whole twitter thing is great. You can make people a million miles away laugh & smile…. …while you quietly sit in a dark room & cry.

I hope I’ve been able to do that for you. Alright I gotta go. I gotta get another Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. But before I do, let me just quickly tell you I’m on Today’s Mama with a pretty darn good post about the Liberty Science Center. If you’re in the tri-state area, check it out because I was quite impressed with the place. They truly have something for everyone – a touch tank, a rock wall, story time, a hurricane camber, experiments. And if you’re not from the area, forget I said anything because you probably don’t care unless you’re ever going to visit the tri-state area – and you never know – so you really should check it out. Just to be safe.
