The Glorious Train Wreck Mom

This is a safe space for all train wrecks. Except here, we don't give you a puppy and a latte. We give you sarcasm and humor.

Did you look at the calendar? Do you see what tomorrow is? It’s Thursday. Thanksgiving. And your house is going to be invaded by friends, family, and people who like to point out that your corgi sheds enough to make tumbleweeds from her fur. You’ve been so focused on what you’re going to cook, you forgot to clean. Probably doesn’t help that you’ve also been working, and driving your kids everywhere, and doing everything else. You need a plan. I’m here to help.

2021 has been like 2020 Jr. Not nearly as bad but still enough to make you mumble, “WTF?” twenty times a day. I know I’m supposed to be an adult and watch the news and stay up on current events but when you have anxiety and depression, that’s just adding kerosene to the campfire.

We all need something to take out minds off the daily grind and twenty four hour news cycle. We need to laugh. So, for your mental health and mine, I’m giving you nine books to help fuel your socially acceptable escapism.

As always, I will post link where you can buy these books. If you use my link, I may earn a small commission. This comes at no cost to you. So, thank you.

I feel bad for anyone who has to go through my YouTube history. Between Dr. Pimple Popper, Brad Mondo, Jenna Moreci, and …

What has this year been? Seriously. Who forgot to throw a Virgin in the volcano to appease the gods? That’s the only way I can think of to explain the absolute shit show these past 6 months have been. This was supposed to be THE year. The year of clear and perfect vision. The year of …
