ending 2017 a little bruised and a whole lot worse for the wear

First thing in the morning this past Sunday, New Years Eve 2017, the shower nozzle fell from the sky and hit me in the face.  Good morning to me on that Lord's day.  No broken bones, but it was touch and go there for a minute checking my nose for a status…

It seems I look a lot like Hillary Clinton..... trying to decide which voices matter

Y'all, this really happened. 

I was at the grocery store last night, soup aisle to be exact, and I scared a man half to death.  Like he saw a ghost, or a scary monster, which made me feel really self conscious because he was looking straight at me.  First …

typing something out really quick so y'all don't think I'm dead

First of all, I am wounded and a little mad about the whole thing.  And I couldn't type to save my life for about a week.  It's a high level deltoid strain, and I'm thinking even possibly a tear.  But I swore off doctors years ago when that young …

But I can't

THIS is happening right down the street from us.  


Y'all,.... in the very next block;  and we're about to have a stretch of several just like it right there with it very soon.  The picture doesn't do it justice.  Add about 3 more stories to the con…

desperate times call for desperate measures.... says me every dang day.

Happy Anniversary, Fireman Dave, now can you go pick up three picnic tables I just found outside at a restaurant and take them to the school?  Then take me to lunch to celebrate our love?

And he said yes to both.  Which, in short, explains how we've been m…

a broken tooth, a kid in a banana suit, and our very own ant colony - an Easter story

So this week brought week 3 of my injured calf muscle.  Still wearing a compression bandage and really wishing I had bought it in black instead of white.  Much more attractive all around than a tight white tube sock.  And kid 3 hurt his knee in football pr…

No Gifts for You !

I can be a little like Scrooge at Christmas.  Or maybe more like the Grinch... all green and ugly and ready to steal the roast beast from little children.  At least my husband and boys think so -  because David says every year.... EVERY year, I get all frustr…

Watch me, Mama....

Watch me, Mama....  Kid 3 said to me as he played ping pong at the YMCA last night.  We were waiting for big brother to finish karate class.  I had already been up there for hours earlier that day at work, and now back for the evening  -  But this time I foun…

They need the mom I am now.

I watch as he makes his way across my crowded classroom.  A little boy, about 3 years old.  His mom has just finished her morning spin class and I'm now working with one of my older adult groups.  We're at our local YMCA, the place to be in the  morni…

I just sucked up half a roll of toilet paper into the vacuum cleaner.

No joke.  I just sucked up half a roll of toilet paper into the vacuum cleaner before I could stop it.  Once it started rolling, it was a fast ride.  It's usually socks that get sucked up because our boys don't know how to take both socks off at the s…
