Life is Too Short

Hello friends and welcome to Thursday here at the OCM. Usually today is the day I do Mama Kat’s Writers Workshop, but I had some news today and decided to take my blog another way. Today I realized just how much we all put off because we just assume there is always going to be time to do it later. How utterly naive of us. There are no guarantees that we are going to get a later so we need to do what we can, while we can. Grab your coffees, get comfy and let me tell you about my day.

Mommy’s Rant Monday

Hoo boy am I in a mood. Oh wait, sorry, Hello! Welcome to Monday.  New topic today, it’s a Mommy’s rant. I think it’s good to vent every once in a while, it’s healthy, and it keeps me sane. Given that I have my own little virtual soapbox here at my disposal I’m going to take full advantage of it! So grab your coffee’s (lace it with the good stuff if you got it, who cares that it’s Monday) and let’s get to this!

Hello friends and welcome to day 52 of the 365 Days of Blog Marathon. It’s Pot Luck Saturday here at the Over Caffeinated Mom and I am pleased to have yet another celebrity to be able to bring you another installment of  3 Questions With.  As I did before the Kevin Sorbo post I was giving out some hints through my Twitter stream on who it was this week. Alas no-one even ventured a guess, or if they did, they didn’t let me know about it. Anyway that’s neither here nor there so let’s get to it. Grab yourself your caffeinated beverage of choice, get comfy and enjoy 3 Questions With…………

RANT!! – Hospital Waiting Rooms

Hello friends and welcome to day 35 of the 365 Days of Blog marathon. I know it’s Wednesday and according to my self imposed schedule that equals wacky and weird, however given the day I just had it’s all about letting off steam today. I’m not just mildly annoyed with my local ER, I’m not slightly annoyed, I’m pissed to the point I want to smack someone. Being a hospital “frequent flyer” (for reasons see my post on my son Jamie here ) I’m normally pretty tolerant of the ebb and flow of the ER so it take quite a bit to get me to this point.

Day 29 – Mid-Week Rant!

Hello Friends and welcome to day 29 of the 365 Days of Blog Marathon. It’s Topical Thursday here at the Over Caffeinated Mom and I’m going to rant. I’m not sure how this works in other parts of the world but this is new to me and I’m getting a little sick and tired of the education system treading on parental territory. The topic this time is Sex Education in the Classroom. Now let me preface this rant by saying I don’t disagree with sex education in schools. I think it’s healthy and normal and overall a good idea. What I am having trouble with is the AGE they are proposing to enlighten our children.
