Blah… Winter….. I’m over it.

  My temperature comfort zone… about 60-90 degrees is the sweet spot.  When the weather guy says “coldest temperatures in 3 years” are headed our way, it makes me want to punch baby rabbits…. repeatedly.  I am not made for cold weather… I hate having to wear a coat.. when the simple act of trying read more »

Things you ponder during a power outage…

As an adult, do you ever stop and try to remember the last time that you were truly carefree.. without any real worries or responsibilities? Sometimes being a responsible adult bites.  In fact, a lot of the time it bites big time!  Don’t get me wrong, I have a wonderful life.. I know that a read more »

Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That….

Ok, first my disclaimer.. I am the Mom that takes pride in making little goodie bags with my son to take to class parties.. I decorate pumpkins with cute ribbon at Halloween… and I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t considered (although, not for long) making my own laundry detergent.. Don’t get me wrong.. read more »

Color Me Crazy!

    Let me start by saying, I am soooo NOT a runner.  I had the delusion of attempting the C25K last year, but failed miserably.  That being said, last night I signed up for a 5K.  WHAT? I know, right.  It wouldn’t be a big deal for most people, but for me, it’s terrifying. read more »

Kiss that annoying nighttime cough GOODBYE!

MIRACLE IN A JAR! We’ve all experienced it.. you’ve got a cold, bronchitis, etc.. you may start feeling better, but that nagging dry cough, tickle in your throat keeps you from sleeping at night… not to mention your significant other may be secretly plotting your death from the other side of the bed due to read more »

I’ve Got A Beef…

  Ok, just warning you now.. I’m getting ready to go on a rant.  A year ago this past September, my Mom was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast cancer.  (I know the ‘c’ should be capitalized, but I refuse to show cancer that respect)  After a lumpectomy, several rounds of chemo, and radiation she is read more »

French Fries and Tornado Sirens

I’m still.. at times… afraid of the dark. Once in a while I dip my french fries in my chocolate shake, because it tastes better that way.  Music is the one thing that soothes me when I’m angry, can make me cry when I least expect it, and can zap me to a distant place read more »

“I get older.. they stay the same age.”

  Once in a while a movie comes along.. that even if you’ve seen it a gazillion times, you still laugh as if you are watching it for the first time. For me.. Dazed and Confused is definitely one of those movies.  It’s in the same category as any John Hughes/Brat Pack movie, as far read more »
