    It's hard to believe that 13 years have passed since that fateful day that changed all of our lives in ways we never could have imagined. No matter how much time goes by, we'll never forget where we were and what we were doing on the morning of September 11, 2001, when the news broke that the first plane had hit the World Trade Center.

    And that's why we need to stop and take a moment today to remember those who lost their lives in the attacks, and also the loved ones they left behind who are still grieving every single day.

    Sleep is one of the most important things we do in a 24-hour period. Without sleep, we would wither away and go insane.

    Unfortunately, it is also the one thing that often falls by the wayside. Who can sleep when there are TV shows to binge-watch, work to accomplish, laundry to be done, and children to tend to all day long? As parents, we especially get the short end of the sleep stick since we are often up with children at night or desperately clinging to the shreds of private time we get between their bedtime and ours.

    Who could sleep through that? And yet, we know how important sleep is. We know that so many diseases and problems are prevented by getting proper sleep. The question is, how do we do it? We gathered 10 sleep hacks guaranteed to get you the rest you deserve. How delicious!

I wonder if we'll be seeing her in a short wedding dress for her upcoming ceremony with fiance Eric Johnson?

    Okay married couples, what usually happens when you decide to paint a room? You both look at paint chips, tape them to the wall, discuss at length, and then one or both of you shows up at the paint store and purchases a mutually agreed-upon color. Right? I mean, that's how I always did it. But maybe there are some rogue husbands out there making unilateral paint color purchases. (HOWCOULDYOU?!?) Because someone found this hilarious sign at a hardware store reading: "Husbands MUST have a note from their wives before selecting colors."

    Really, hardware store? This is the kind of world we live in, now? Couples counseling at Home Depot! You have to wonder what those wives' notes are going to look like. And for that matter, you have to wonder if other stores ought to require notes from spouses before a purchase. I'm sure that wouldn't lead to any charges of sexism at all ...

    If you walk into your bathroom each morning and think to yourself, "Gee, I sure wish this space was a little bit more fresh and inviting," you most definitely aren't alone.

    Considering how much time we spend in there compared to the rest of our rooms, it's obviously a place we should feel happy and comfortable in. But as much as we'd all love to makeover our bathrooms so they resemble something in a magazine, most of us don't have the time or resources to do so.

    Oh Ann. Ann, Ann, Ann. SIGH. By now you've probably seen Ann Coulter's response to the #BringBackOurGirls meme: #BringBackOurCountry. Okay, fine -- we definitely need to do more about the 300 kidnapped Nigerian school girls than post selfies. But Ann's gesture struck me as mean-spirited, tone-deaf, desperate attention-mongering troll bait more than anything else. And anyway, what's wrong with showing interest in and support for an international cause?

    But back to Ann Coulter. Within minutes of her post you could hear a thud throughout the Twitterverse and the words RELEASE THE KRACKEN. Oh yes, it was time for everyone to mock Ann Coulter. And mock they did. Here are some of the best (and cleanest) Twitter responses to #BringBackOurCountry.

    I keep a list of stuff I want to buy ... eventually. I keep adding items to it, and it never seems to get any shorter. Why? Because of a competing list: Stuff I have to buy. You know what I'm talking about: Home repairs, summer camp, baby's new shoes. All that stuff responsible grown-ups have to take care of. Derr! STUPID RESPONSIBLE ADULTHOOD RUINING ALL MY FUN. Sometimes those necessities are so boring. I don't mean to complain, but -- oh what the hell. I'm going to complain.
