That time I was an A-Hole at TSA

Nothing good happens at 4:30am, right?

Well, at 4:30am on the first day of Winter Break in Syracuse, people are trying to escape, and there is a one-hour-long line snaking for TSA.

What will you no longer put up with?

I did not want to have kids.

My mom & dad had kids.  Obv.   And we were giant pains in the ass. Life seemed really hard. And stressful. I didn’t want my life to be like that.

Fast Forward to my first date with John, after 4 years of platonic...

Have you become the frog?

A Typical Day:

-Wake up, 3am. Realize I’ve only slept 4 hours, panic. Get pissed.

-Mentally review my to-do list, ensuring I cannot get back to sleep.

-Fall asleep at 5:50am for 45 fitful minutes before the 6:30 alarm.

Grab my phone to open my...

You don't deserve that reset button

I lay in bed at 9:30pm as Jack, 10-years-old, waltzes into my room and looks at me with…

People feel tight. Constricted. Heavy. BUT!...

When being nice was bullshit

Here’s what it feels like:

I’m constantly five steps ahead in my mind…everywhere. All the time. For every attempt to reign in my  brain, there is another attempt that...

I was addicted to asking "How?"

Written on

When you have to pee, 3 minutes is a loooooong time. That’s how long I stood outside the bathroom at the salon for an appointment I was already late for.

Then a thought struck: try the door.

Working hard to like my old self

“Jennifer Grimm Liddy is…

  • Tired of the snow.
  •  Sick of my two-year-old whining.
  •  DONE having to make dinner every night.

Remember when Facebook first came out, it prompted you to post something in that manner?

Your brand new planner will not save you

 

I felt frazzled, scattered, chaotic, tired, overwhelmed, frustrated.

I needed to “get my shit together”. Time was my worst enemy & made me feel like…

Happy Effing New Year!

Written January 1, 2018

Do you remember your 2017 Resolution?

Me neither. Mine was likely something about giving up sugar, getting in shape, and losing weight. It’s  been the same damn thing for most of my adult life.
