What in the wide-open un-raptured world? Momma’s lost her moxie.


  The kids are out of school for the summer…and with their day-time presence, I’ve seemingly lost my moxie. The “zone” in which I have to mentally enter in order to blog has been invaded. And my quiet time went out the door with my kitty cat’s new-found fascination for the blue jay.

Poppa’s pude-wudes. My best friends.


One thousand one….one thousand two, one thousand three……………. GHOST-TOWN!!!!!!!!!!!! All I can hear is the crunch of leaves, distant whispers and giggles, I see the flicker of a lightning bug here or there…and the sounds of someone yelling “GHOST-TOWN!” But then I hear cries, see torn clothes and witness blood-shed. Two of my cousins had run into the barbed-wire fence in the dark, […]

I know….write.


The other day my kids found some of my old report cards…and it’s true… a few had “F’s” on them. Math, Science…oh, and even Social Studies….. OK, everything except English, Reading/Writing/Spelling. Basically the “arts.” Anything that required too much brain power went out the window right off the bat. Actually I do not think there was ever even a […]

Yesterday…all my troubles seemed so far away….


Yesterday was my 39th birthday. I want to tell you about it….because it was so stinkin’ AWESOME!! The last memorable birthday I remember was when I was 9. My 9th Birthday ←Trust me, you’re going to want to read it…after all, it involves a cow.

Eat the grape popsicles already!


Every time I buy popsicles (which just happens to be every time we run out, which just happens to be every week…) the only color left is grape. It doesn’t matter what brand they are, what shape or who the person choosing the color is. Grape inevitably remains left unscathed.

What happens in Branson…stays in Branson. Mostly.


Once upon a time…there were 3 little cousins, who used to play with Barbie’s at Mammaw’s. And then they grew up! They had 9 kids between them …. and so they decided it was time for a break.   Take 1!    “Girls Gone Wild: Branson Edition!”

Momma Mia & her Holy Ghost gasoline


Tomorrow I leave out-of-town for the weekend. When I initially planned this trip I did not realize it was Mother’s Day weekend. Would that have stopped me from taking a much-needed “girls only” trip? Not bloody likely.

Zumba eh….Zumba ahhhh….that hurts….


Yesterday I pulled the muscle in my left butt-cheek doing Zumba. Again. It now feels like there is a rock permanently implanted there, seized up for the duration of my life. Perhaps it will give the illusion that my buns are more firm than they actually are. I mean… than they never were.  OK… probably that they will never […]

Osama Bin Shot


I’m not going to lie. This morning I was awakened by death surrounding me. And I was saddened. I know it is hard to believe. It is also hard to believe that I used Cascade soap for creamer in my coffee yesterday…but I did.
