ABOUT THIS SITE
Welcome to Bits & Bobs.
If you’re looking for Bits & Boobs, that’s a different site entirely. And shame on you.
If you’re looking for cleaning tips, organizational tips, or FDA-approved parenting tips, this is also not the site for you.
But hey, if you’re looking for randomness from someone whose life has been a great big spiral of suck lately, then come on in!
And by spiral of suck I mean becoming a widow.
And by even suckierness I mean being waitlisted for a widow’s support group. “Sure! Go ahead and grieve! But just when it’s a little more convenient for us.”
I’ve lodged a complaint with the creators of the ‘get out there and try new things’ advice (widowhood should not be on the list. Neither should crack cocaine, I suppose, but I can’t help everyone.)
Until I hear back, Bits & Bobs is my way of trying to make my heart chuckle. Climb my way out of the fog. Catch the next train back to sanity.
I hope it makes you laugh, too.
No pressure, or anything.
And get this. The beauty of having a life that needs to be un-sucked is that you don’t have to be a widow to play along. Anything counts. So let’s do this together. Let’s laugh through the tough. And maybe one day our lives will be a little less sucky.
I’m a mom. I’m an author of children’s books. I’m a paraeducator in an elementary school.
Except once I saw the Queen’s Mum in a carriage in the woods behind Windsor Castle. She waved and I waved back, which raises two questions: The first being why was I actually lurking in the woods behind Windsor Castle? And the second being did the Queen’s Mum get jealous that the wave was named after her daughter?
