Well hello there darling friends and a big juicy welcome to any new friends. Yep it's Monday so you know it's time to put on your wicked heels ( optional cleats) and rocket crotch kick Monday in the Junk. Every Monday I arm you with fodder against this evil day with the knowledge that I am indeed a Moron by sharing a story from my life. Boy do I have a doozy for you this week.Last Monday I fb posted and tweeted this....more
The week before Christmas, I noticed on a friend’s Facebook page that her husband had just suffered a massive heart attack over the weekend. My friend, Duchess Ocean Waves is one of my Ya-Yas, the small group of girlfriends I have know since elementary school. Immediately, I sent out a Ya-Ya alarm to rouse the troops. We all made calls, sent emails, left voicemails, and texted. The Duchess comes from a large extended family and she counts most people in her community as friends. We knew friends and family would surround her, but we knew she would be alone. We sent her a bouquet of flowers....more
February is fast approaching. The ‘red’ month… and I don’t mean Valentine’s Day.
It’s a fantastic thing that a whole month is dedicated to raising heart disease awareness. Anytime attention is focused on an issue that affects millions of people, it is a worthy cause.

We went through our battle with infertility, he closed a business and opened a new one. I was pregnant with twins. We said goodbye to our little one-bedroom by the beach and hello to a larger home to accommodate our expanding family. Life moved on....more
Yesterday I had just that kind of day I can tell you. I slept in since this cold has pretty much kicked my butt which was nice. The Comtrex I took really works nice, thank you, and I slept well. I knew that I had to take Daddy for his little outpatient surgery so I needed to get well on my way to better. I picked him up and we got to the surgery center on time to sit and wait, wait, wait. A little later Brother came in. I was surprised but he had the week off and I was glad for the company. We were sitting there for a bit while Daddy reste...more
