I JUST WANT TO BE ALONE (Part II of series) 

The second volume in the best-selling I Just Want to Pee Alone series!

“Don’t get us wrong, we love the men in our lives – we do (most of the time). It’s just that sometimes we would like them to go away. Not forever or anything like that. Just for an hour … or a day … or a weekend. We want some time to ourselves to read a good book or take a walk or do anything other than try to make a dent in the never ending mound of dirty clothes that keeps piling up on the floor on his side of the bed. We just want to be alone. All alone. Is that too much to ask?”

I Just Want to Be Alone is a collection of humorous essays from 37 of the most Super Cool Lady Writers you’ll find on the web. Including: People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms, A.K. Turner, My Husband Ate All My Ice Cream, Hollow Tree Adventures, Bad Parenting Moments and Stacey Hatton

I JUST WANT TO PEE ALONE

This award-winning book is available for sale and sitting high on the charts!! The reviews and sales continue to impress!

37 of the craziest mom bloggers have put their internet stories on hold to compile a hilarious anthology of parenting essays titled, “I Just Want To Pee Alone.”

“After the success of her best-selling holiday book proved that bloggers could make big profits in the world of print, “Jen,” the founder of the popular blog People I Want To Punch in the Throat, wanted to expand to a wider audience. She reached out for contributions from other mommy bloggers and compiled their work into a book that is guaranteed to make readers laugh, cry, wince, gasp, and thank God that at least we have each other.

Covering a range of topics from potty training to coping with the death of a loved one, each essay is grounded with the common theme of finding humor in their mundane and sometimes heart-breaking daily struggles.

Keep in mind, this collection of funny fast-paced stories would make a great gift for anyone who loves to laugh, and knows anything about motherhood. Perhaps even a baby shower gift for the sarcastic and fun mom-to-be?”

(This material is for mature audiences only.)

My Funny Major Medical

Laughter might be the best medicine, but it’s not covered by Medicare. So this little book provides a low-cost, over-the-counter dosage to cheer up (and/or terrify) those who find themselves on the wrong end of health maintenance. (Whichever the “wrong end” might be.) Some of the funniest humor writers on the scene today share their stories, jokes, therapeutic venting, and scans of the process of Getting Better–including some medical personnel who didn’t realize they were being funny.

Contributors include columnists, comedians, authors, TV writers, and people with unauthorized access to hospital files.

Are You a Member of the 2018 Resolutionists?

BY STACEY HATTON
Columnist
JANUARY 05, 2018

Welcome, 2018! You have no idea how much you are appreciated. Last year was challenging for many, so I’m not alone in bigly appreciating a fresh start.

I’m not one for joining the masses by spending hours crafting the ideal annual resolution. To me, it’s just a waste of time and energy.

But in college, I loved coming up with a theme for the new year. The problem was that I was a classic resolution procrastinator. I’d wait to the last minute to brainstorm and, surprising to no one, was unable to come up with anything adequate at midnight after drinking too much bubbly.

Creativity and focus can be complicated by alcohol; hence, get rid of resolutions.

Recently, various people on social media have been calling out their 2018 pledges. I enjoy reading what other people are going to be regretting after a few months — or, for some, several days.

It seems the type of resolutions people have can be divided into several classic groups: the planners, the hopeful but unorganized, and the delusional.

The first kind of New Year’s Resolutionist is the overachieving taskmaster. Everyone either knows of somebody with this affliction, or you are one of the irritating goal-setters who actually stick with plans and obtain them.

Even though I respect and appreciate these folks, I won’t be asking them to join me any time soon for cocktails and hot wings at Applebee’s. I’m sure they are busy training for their next marathon anyway.

“Marjorie, darling. We must run a 5K every month, leading up to November’s New York City Marathon! Cheers to 2018 with our homemade distilled, bubbling cucumber water.”

The next group is for the hopeful, yet disorganized. A pleasant group with candy-cane wishes and champagne dreams, but their hopes are fleeting and often short-winded.

Sometimes their resolutions for the upcoming year don’t even make it through the end of the week, but can be forgotten by sunrise of Jan. 1.

“My resolution is I’m going to write down everything I eat. Shirley, can you pass me a pen and paper? *while stuffing a box of Christmas candy into her mouth* Oh, never mind! I’ll remember to write it down later!”

The remaining people are quick to make up super fabulous New Year’s resolutions in order to fit in or win a self-imposed, imaginary contest to have the best resolution. I lovingly call these narcissists, the blatant liars.

Often they pull a top-notched resolution out of their hat and toss it into the wind to never be remembered or realized.

C’mon! Who really believes that Frank, the manager from the A&P, is finishing his doctorate in Astrophysics and scheduled to launch the Millennium Falcon next month?

I can relate with the second group of dreamers, because I used to be one. If you repeatedly plan to shed those last few pounds or plan on starting your second daughter’s baby book (11 years after her birth), you probably fit in this category.

Whether you are able, unable or don’t give a hoot about reaching your New Year’s resolution, I have one wish for you all: May you have love, peace, success, and an ever-lasting supply of Happy Hour coupons in 2018!
