It’s Official…

…I now weigh exactly what I weighed when I entered college 22 years ago. Now I’ve been wanting to tone myself but this is not what I had in mind.  Even back then, I was happy when I put on the freshman 15.  It made me look healthy.  Before that – and now – I […]

The Return of Godzuki

Pudding is back. It has been a rough few days in our house.  Earlier in the week, maybe on Monday, he lay down for a nap, woke up, and hurled all over the place.  And then continued this most ungentlemanly behavior for the rest of the afternoon, evening and well into the wee hours. By […]

The Vacation to Nowhere

I am in the throes of vacation planning. The way it’s going, we are going to end up spending our vacation right here in our house. My criteria seem to be so complex as to render this task impossible.  Or rather, possible if I am willing to ante up insane amounts of money. Willing? Yes. […]

I Totally Forgot…

what I was going to write about! Oh. Now this is ironic. What I was going to write about was some lame post about how my knees hurt whenever it rains and how that doesn’t make me feel old, because my knees have been hurting with the weather ever since I was 12 years old […]

Most Days

Most days, my kids drive me insane. They’re demanding.  They want every single speck of my attention.  They want toys.  They even have the nerve to want food – a lot. Most days, I am tired.  I have spent all day trying to balance on a seesaw with 2 rambunctious kids of differing ages with […]

Madeline Alice Spohr

When I read about babies or young children dying, it sears my heart in a way that nothing else can.  It has always been a heart-wrenching thing to read but that pain twists in a new way when you become a parent. All of a sudden you can anticipate that loss, and feel, in the […]

Danny Evans Is Now Following Me on Twitter!

Danny Evans is following me on Twitter! This is a mind-blowing thing, considering that I have yet to really figure out the purpose of Twitter beyond sending people the most mundane up-to-the-minute details of life. I’m on the toilet reading Caribbean Travel & Life. I just farted. I fell asleep watching Fringe. Does anyone really […]

Today, Not So Evil

It’s no coincidence that I woke up this morning with a raging case of the reds.   (If you don’t know what that is, go back 2 posts…) In any case, I think that has a lot to do with why I was so absolutely incensed last night.  Incensed, I tell you. Don’t get me wrong […]

Master of His Domain

Oh, sometimes I get so frustrated when talking to the Tech Guru. When he gets his stubborn Capricorn goat mentality going it drives me crazy. We have a not-so-large house that was renovated in the 80s.  Poorly done work for the most part, but one of the good things they added, and something we loved, […]

Sleep is A Good Thing!

Oh my god, I thought I was going to smack the kids tonight. (For those of you new to my world, let me assure you, I do not really smack my kids – unless they do something stupid like knock over my wineglass.) Tonight was a lesson in patience, and I’ve got precious little of […]
