Should I charge myself a hundred bucks an hour for this?

#The Flinger Family

Lately I’ve been having these.. I don’t want to say visions.. I won’t call them “moments of clarity,” let’s just say… I’ve been having these…. thoughts. Yes. Thoughts.

In fact, I’ve come to some major conclusions lately. I’ve actually figured somethings out. This is a rarity. Please know this.

It’s not just the new web site I built this week for the senator.* It’s not even the if statements I figured out how to put into my posts so only members can see thing and other people, well, don’t. ** Or the php header redirects i used to take people requesting two different domains in one account (called a parked domain) to redirect each to a sub-directory. Badass. Seriously.

No, no, it’s that I figured out that I’m turning in to my mother and usually shrinks charge you at least a few hundred dollars to come to this conclusion.

And I did it for fifteen bucks of tequila and a coke.


  1. I think I am already a member…
    And hey

  2. what a great post. once I had Lily it was like the blindfold was remoed and I was filled with amazement for everything that my parents have done for me. And I still feel it, every single day. Especially when I am on the brink of losing it, because I know my folks had to deal with me an my sibs for at least 20 years before we let them off the hook. yikes. you are good to write your Momma like this.

  3. You have SO much on your plate right now, as my mom would say. Take care of yourself girly. My mom at one point had FIVE of us at home and it’s no wonder she seemed a bit edgy sometimes! You rock on the website design, by the way. Just don’t spread yourself too thin…smooch.

  4. No login lately?

    I recently told my mom that I didn’t realize that MOMS do EVERYTHING! I don’t think you can even have a clue about what it takes until you become THE MOM. What a job description!

  5. I love your posts Les. Congrats on the senator’s site!! Woo-hooo!!!

    It’s amazing how far a simple “thank you” or “I appreciate what you do” goes, huh? I always try to make a stink (in a good way) when my hubby’s helpful, in hopes that he’ll reciprocate when I’m helpful. Sometimes it works.

    In general it’s a thankyou-less job… with pay in hugs & kisses, and poopy diapers,....  wink 

    Love ya Leslie!

  6. I think that all of us at some point realize we are becoming our mothers.  It’s odd, isn’t it?

    It’s even odder because my husband hates my mom, but loves me. How does that work?

  8. Erika? Your blog looks AMAZING. Love the new digs.

    And Isabelle, I think you’re on to something. That’s a whole other post right there and I have no tequilla left so I’ll have to do my deep thinkin’ another day. tongue laugh

  9. I hope to god I never turn in to my mother. And don’t we all look for something/someone to make us happy (it/they never will it must originate from within).
    Oh yes.
    And yesterday was my birthday.
    And it was the worst damn day I’ve had in a long time. And that’s saying alot. And my husband is an ass. I think I am going on strike.
    Misery loves what?
