Pick it up off the floor

How many times do you think we, as women, bend over to pick something up off the floor in our life?  Thousands?  Millions?  Why do I even think about this question?  I think that it started when I got older and bending over got more difficult.  You know how it is- bend slow...more

Rainy days

So, here I sit trying to think up something to blog about for my class assignment.  I don’t really feel like doing anything other than burying my head under the covers and going back to bed.  However, my two year old daughter Bella insists that we play tea party.  Here I sit with my tea cup in hand in a Dora the Explorer chair that is much too small for me.  She asks me for the hundredth time since last Sunday, “where is DaDa?”  I answer for the hundredth time, “he is staying with his mommy.”  It appears that I have followed in my mother’s footsteps and will be...more

Hubby Was Right

Hubby likes to be right. This doesn’t happen very often, but occasionally he is right.  At that point he announces to anyone who will listen, “Hey, I was right today!”  Women stare back at him like he’s nuts, while the guys smile and give him a high-five.  This is because they too are seldom right. It all started because I was having “one of those days”.  You know, the kind where nothing makes you happy, with a funk hanging over you like a black cloud?...more

What I Learned in College

So, I'm driving down the road yesterday, totally engrossed in my ipod song selection, (Ew.  Why the hell did I ever put Nick Lachey on here?) when out of the corner of my eye I see him.  He is sitting there in a black mustang and as soon as I pass him, his car lights up like a fucking Christmas tree.  UGH.  I am getting pulled over....more

My Big Rock

My husband was recently subjected to an upper endoscopy for some stomach problems. It was simple. There was no surgery. But, my emotions tipped the scale of a life or death situation. ...more

Five Years Gone By

Wow - I can't believe it. Five years ago today, I met The Husband!  I was invited to see a friend's band play at a bar near my apartment and when I got there, The Husband happened to be in the band.  They're a group of five high school friends that just love to get together and create music.We talked all night and the rest is history....more

One Hubby Down

The Hubby is down and out with his back.  He was washing his truck last week and something just went.  He's in such pain and is moving very slow and crooked!  The doctor is ordering up an MRI which the insurance company, LAST time, would not approve.  This time it is essential to make sure he has not herniated a disc.  He never does not exercise and it has been over a week of him not being able to hardly lift a book.  I hate seeing him in such pain and crookedness.  I certainly hope the doc calls with an appointment soon....more
