Exciting things about today include that it’s nearly Friday, that Friday I’ll be taking in (another) Flogging Molly show at The Fillmore in Detroit, that I made it out to at least one restaurant for Ann Arbor restaurant week, and that my mom is being featured in a magazine. I’m not allowed to talk about that last one, but I can’t help be proud of my famous mama. Lucky for her, I’m not in the 716, and so far, unable to get my hands on a copy! A friend of mine posted today that there are 54 days until spring. For some reason, that made me feel hopeful. In the meantime, let’s keep looking for fun in the “white hot winter.” That’s lame.

Elizabeth Banks Separates the Moms From the “Real” Moms (Hello Giggles) – Though not a mom yet, I fantasize about it plenty. Mostly because I work in a school where I am constantly shaking my head at my perceived lack of parenting going on these days. I have big plans for how to not fail my children. Still, I know motherhood is not a picnic everyday, and this article is refreshingly honest look at how even the people who have it “easy” are struggling just like us “normal” people.
