Late September, 2015, changed my life forever. I was standing at the door of my apartment, talking to my friend – and neighbor – Tanya. I can see the moment that altered the course of, well, EVERYTHING as clear as day. It was dusk and a beautiful, clear night. She was getting ready for a […] The post The Bitch Is Back appeared first on Mommy Wants Vodka.
Growing up, we always had a spot for canes – or “walking sticks” as my father referred to them as – by the front door. While I’m certain that other people had cane holders like we did, I recall being baffled that my friends all thought it was weird. As I recall, these canes were […] The post Cane YOU appeared first on Mommy Wants Vodka.
Prolly best to listen to while reading this post. Honestly, if you CAN listen to it, you should. It’s an excellent song: Nothing could’ve prepared me. They could’ve told me that I’d been depressed and I still wouldn’t have expected that walking into my apartment, I’d see just how depressed I’d been. Show More Summary
She comes into full view from my spot on the gurney and I only know that my parents are going to be so pissed at me. Rebecca, keep your eyes OPEN. Now, open them.

One of those things that I always figured I’d do when I was bored and had scads of free time, which, you know, I’m just swimming in with my three kids and houseful of pets, was to learn to decorate cakes. I somehow forgot when I was hatching my Great Plan, that I have absolutely […] The post In The Kitchen With Aunt Becky appeared first on Mommy Wants Vodka.
I’ve been friends with Pashmina for, shit, what 10, maybe 12 years now, she was my coblogger for the pre-Aunt Becky days and she’s the only reason that I met The Daver. We’ve managed to stay friends for all of this time, and she wanted to show her appreciation for all that I’ve done for […] The post The Butt Sex Saga Part #1 appeared first on Mommy Wants Vodka.
There are always about 40 sides to every story, right? I told you my side of the butt sex story here (as well as back in September). This is Pashmina’s side. For simplicity’s sake, I tell people that Becky is my college roommate. This is not entirely true, as she lived two doors down from […] The post The Butt Sex Check Saga Part B appeared first on Mommy Wants Vodka.

“I was so happy to see your Mom at Alex’s concert the other day. Saw she’s using a cane now, so’s mine. She’s been falling a lot – I’ve had to go over and help her off the floor more times than I care to count. She needs a second total knee replacement now; she […] The post Things Unsaid Today appeared first on Mommy Wants Vodka.
Part I Part II Because I am not only stupid, but dumb too, I can’t back down from a fight. I tried once, but it broke my arm. So when I started getting the hairy eyeball for daring to sit on an unoccupied chair adorned with an unused beach towel, my fake-rock bruised ass was […] The post Street Fighting (wo)Man appeared first on Mommy Wants Vodka.

Growing up, my parents weren’t much for amusement parks. They considered them to be beneath us, and every time I begged to visit one of those stop-n-drop carnivals set up around the outskirts of town, they shuddered notably and gave me a long lecture about how unsafe these things were.

Working in Chicago (as opposed to NOT Chicago), I tend to see a lot of weird shit.

On my eighth birthday, I remember slogging ass out of bed and down to the kitchen for a bit of toast before beginning the day’s activities.
