It’s time for my annual year in review.
I am lucky to have this blog so I can go back and see what happened in my life throughout the year and see what mattered to all of you. Here is the blow by blow recap:
JANUARY 2013 – In the beginning of 2013 we started preparing for Michael’s first holy communion and I was met with the ugly truth behind the Catholic church’s planning for date selection. I almost got killed during the “Sign-up for Communion date” meeting – but I got the date I wanted so it worked out….
2 – In February, just when I was starting to doubt Jesus and his almighty powers, I was saved and all was made right in the universe when Kim Kardashian was impregnated by Kanye West.
I still find it shocking that Kim wants to be wrapped up with this narcissistic asshole but I guess she will eventually figure this out the hard way…..
I wrote her a very special letter to warn her about what she could expect…
3 – In February we were met with yet another Northeast weather disaster. This particular catastrophe was a BLIZZARD! Per usual people lost their fucking marbles while they attempted to prepare for 3 FEET of SNOW!!!
By the time I got to the local grocery store this was what the banana stand was like …just so you can see how insane people behave during inclement weather…..
4 - In March, everyone was all abuzz about the book “Leaning In” which detailed how women of today could totally focus on their career and succeed!! I found that I was much better at “leaning out.”
5 – In April we went to Disney World. Boy, was I in for a real education on American behaviors. I relayed my astonishment regarding the HUGE BEVERAGES that were served in Disney World and the HUGE HUMAN BEINGS that were zipping around on carts.
Some of you got pissed about that…..
Sorry! I just report as I see it
6 – In May, we finally had Michael’s communion after much hard work. (see above)
It went well except for when I lost all of my photos to document my good holy works, thank Jesus I still had my pic of the holy cross made out of pepperoni…
7 – As the summer approached I may or may not have bumped up my drinking and bumped down my parenting…
8 – Toward the end of the summer, we started to get ready for back-to-school, which is when I once again noticed how offensive the Pottery Barn Kids catalogue was…..
In the classic Pottery Barn style which aims to make us feel badly about our homes, bedding, and lives….the PB Kids version, now aims to make us feel bad about our kids lunches and what we put them in……
This blog went VIRAL!! It was my hit of the year – and I know it’s because we all feel the same angst about lunch making in America.
9 – In the fall one of my good friends had a baby. I went to visit her and noticed that sometimes new mothers go a little crazy when it comes to first baby nursery decor. Many of you were VERY ANGRY about my commentary…but many of you were VERY LAUGHING at how fucking stupid it all is….This is why I LOVE MY READERS!!!
10- Finally in December, while I juggled all that I had to do I realized that this ELF ON THE SHELF was really putting things over the edge for me. I wrote an open letter to the clever Elf creators…..
Everyone loved this…This was my number 2 post of the year!!( only second to Pottery Barn lunch post.) What does that tell me??
In closing, it has been a great year for Lady Goo Goo Gaga, and I hope to continue learning and growing and sharing my stories.

Happy New Year!! XO, LADY GOO GOO GAGA
