Yippee Ki Yay…Yippee Yi Yo

50 for men is different for women. It is. I know. Been there and done the 50 and now 51, and watching my husband approach and finally reach the BIG 50. He went through his crisis, I know. I bought him the car…at 40. Very cool moment. Red carpet experience, but that is another story […]

Next…

Am I the only one who drives through the neighborhoods and wonders who lives beyond the gates of those who stake down 20 foot flying reindeer. I have two next door. Yes, two. Put up mismatched colors, or look like they went to the nearest garage sale to put up anything lit up…no, I doubt […]

Imbalance is My Balance of Words

Each time I sit in this spot on this couch, all inspiration leaves my mind. I need to move. Some writers write with habitual perfection, down to the timing of the day. Mine comes to me whenever and wherever. It is becoming a thing of folklore in these parts…(my family) of my carrying my I […]

A Blip

Last year, my humble blog was nominated for the Liebster Award. Speech had been prepped for a possible second nomination…none this year. The nomination or the speech. Of course the nominee is wittier and yes, I am sure younger which means words spill from her mind more freely, which has been taken over by the […]

Just One More…

As our children grow, and pretend they are adults…we embarrass them, and for awhile it is a lovely form of payback of sleepless nights, attitude, and the nerve they have to leave home. In my eyes well deserved. Until tonight. This is the night where time stood still and my mind knew it went too […]

My Black Friday Came On Thursday

Every year, we get through the holidays with a bit more grace than this year. This is the year that many parents dread…work schedule reality. You thought you hated the drop off for college, piece of cake, friends, piece of cake. For most this will never be an issues, most work normal days…not in a […]

We Have to Talk

“I am confused.” “I want to do the assignment on my own.” “I am not moving.” “No, others will cheat. We wont agree.” “Do we have to?” “Let’s just do the assignment. This IS the assignment. WE HAVE TO TALK. Silence the golden moment for those with sleeping infants not for teachers trying to teach. […]

Not Your Average Mother-In-Law

Not Your Average Mother-In-Law

For 26 years I have referred to my mother-in-law as just that…”mother-in-law.” For no reason, but out of respect, and really was I worthy to call her “mom.” Just a stray out of nowhere, not quite the breed she was expecting, but one she received as her eldest fell in love with me…little old me, […]

Wash, Rinse, Repeat. Life Anything but a Game.

In this weeks adventure I mustered through my schools fall break with the fortitude of an energizer bunny. Nails completely ragged and torn, no polish left and I just might have a callous. Tired of seeing boxes neatly lined up like little soldiers ready for their next mission and a past fan of the prize […]
