It’s national LIPSTICK DAY! We gals love our lipstick, but sometimes it ends up in the hands of little ones, all over things we don’t want it to be on and seems impossible to get out. In honor of National Lipstick Day, I thought I’d help you out a little when the lipstick ends up where it shouldn’t!
Sunday is Father’s Day and in honor of this special occasion, I thought I’d recognize all you great dads who are doing the best you can, even without having received the “How to be a Great Dad Manual” with each child’s birth, although, even if there were such a manual, I suspect you wouldn’t read it anyway, because what man needs instructions – right :o). And to all those moms and uncles and friends and brothers and relatives who fill in for dads, thank you too!

Join me once again as I found 10 hilarious tweets from struggling apartment dwellers. Maybe they should all read my blog on the 10 things that annoy your neighbors the most!

In honor of National Spouses day, I thought I’d break down the humor of how drastically small life habits change from newly living together roomies/newlyweds to long-time, hunkered down, committed, couples accidentally swapping dentures. Whether you are officially “spouses” or not, if you live together, perhaps you can relate to a few, young or old…
