Hasta la vista boob tube!


My kids slay me. 17 degrees and a north wind of about 40 MPH, the first snow of the year and the “boy” wants to go to school in a t-shirt. I stepped outside and froze my kittens right off in 2.2 seconds. Then the other kid who is even more ridiculous tries to go […]

2011 Blog stats


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 18,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many […]

Eat More Sushi.


So this year, instead of promising myself I am going to have a full-body make-over,  complete with new thighs and minimal arm “flab” by the year of 2013…. I am just going to be more realistic and do the things that I love. The things that make me…me. The things that are realistic. The things […]

Gonna wash that gray right outta my hair!


This week I have learned two things about myself: I have claws even a momma bear would back away from…and  I can use a $7 box of color to cover up my $80 highlights.  The revelation of these two things have given me a new lease on life. In about 6 months I will be […]

Take me out to the …..chiropractor.


Yesterday the Big Injun asked me if I wanted to play “Annie Over.” I thought it may have been the sweetest invite ever. First of all, who plays Annie Over anymore, especially when you’re an adult? Secondly, it was just cute. We were playing basketball before that and were reminiscing about when we were kids. […]

Five down, four to go.


The way I figure it, I have about four “lives” left. Who said only cats had nine lives? When I was 7 I tried to hang myself on our monkey bars. With a rope. Around my neck. With a barrel underneath me that I was rolling on. That’s right. I was going to hang myself, but I […]

Why I feel like screaming bloody murder.


There were 7 of us at a table. We counted 15 times we had been married between us and there were more divorces just around the corner….. “I’m getting divorced! I’m not happy! My husband left me because he just didn’t want to be married anymore! I am miserable! I know my husband is cheating […]

My Dingo ate your… ahhh, nevermind.


Twitch…twitch…t w i t c h…… That would be my eyelids. Twitching. Tired. Stressed. That’s what happens when I get stressed. Why am I stressed? I am so glad you asked. The neighbors dog. It’s lucky to be alive. The little, black, hairy creature is not on my “favorite furry critters” list right now. Normally it […]
