Boys … arrrggghh!

I’m less than thrilled with the majority of the men-folk in my life right now … Spent several hours in the ER last night, as DH felt like his throat was swelling (after Benadryl and Motrin).  I’m happy to say – all is well with him.  It appears he’s decided to have panic attacks, I …

Back to reality ….

We’re home from vacation … gorgeous weather, hot sun, fun times, and great spirits have me feeling relaxed, sun-kissed (or is it jaundice???) and happy.  All went well with our gang while we were away, my folks had a good time, the kids seemed to have behaved.  (I have a pantry full of King Dons …

Ahhhh … for the moment

Maggie is back to her fat-healthful-state.  The taxes are done, now to make the appointment.   And it’s time to get ready for work … I can’t imagine life possibly getting any better … Yeah … ok … maybe a thing or two …

Technology … it’s pretty cool!

I’m not crazy tech-savvy, but I can usually work my way around most electronics.  With this in mind, I am in LOVE with our new smart phones!  We (DH and I) both got Droid 2 Global phones – our first upgrade since texting.  How COOL!!  Along with easy texting (I stuck with a physical QWERTY …

If Martha Stuart and June Cleaver had a third sister …

She MIGHT just look like me … We had Christmas with my Dad yesterday … Whew!  We pulled it off (… I think …) – and my Martha Stuart/June Cleaver façade is safe – for a while yet any way … It was close though: Mother Nature’s little hissy fit (can’t even really call it …

I’m workin’ on it …

Went to the DARN SANE meeting before the big storm started … [yes – People suck!  Are there any members of my community that aren’t sexually abusing people/beating their kids???]  Now, I’m snuggled in for a long winter’s nap, hot toddy in hand … I made a large pot of chicken noodle soup (the DH …

The tickets are bought … the deal is done!

Woohoo!! I’m going on VACATION!!!  The DH and I try to get away every year, but some years – it’s a question mark … can we financially swing it?  The mystery has been solved yet once more.  YAY!!  Look out paradise, here we come …  Yeah, ok, in like 53 days, 13 hours and 47 …

Changing my ways … oh, the stench

I’ve spent the last week or so reading someone else’s blog … she’s a fellow crafter, young mother, and has been blogging for 5 yrs (means I had a lot of reading to do) … It’s been interesting to follow her life (she’s moved 3 times cross-country style, had two children, opened her Etsy shop, …

Houston … we had a problem

So … throw the cumulated stress of holidays, work, another DARN SANE meeting (people STILL suck!!*), and spousal unit discord together … and you get an overweight, middle-aged, crusty ER nurse & mother that crashes … HARD!  I just slept for the last 18 hours STRAIGHT … AMAZING!  While I’m still overweight, middle-aged and probably …
