"What is it about you that attracks these guys?" That was the question posed by a good friend this week and in response all I could do was shake my head and wonder aloud "what IS it about me....?" I suppose a little back story would help right about now.

"If you don't pass this along in the next 6 minutes to 53 friends then you will break your leg, no wait, make that both your legs and if you don't send it to at least 43 friends not only will you break your legs but someone will deliver bad news." … Read full post »
Several times this past week I found myself frustrated beyond belief, so frustrated in fact that my boss didn't have the "courage" as she put it to ask me to make one more change in their itinerary, she knew I was ready to blow.
Let me back up, I work for… Read full post »
I planted a new rose bush in our backyard two years ago, a tiny little thing with not much hope of making it, someone had given it to me because the color was "all wrong" in their garden. I dug the hole just right, I fertilized just right and on a… Read full post »
Aren't Saturday mornings meant for sleeping in? For years I have been waiting patiently for each and every Saturday morning to roll around just so that I could sleep in. This worked beautifully for a very long time and yet now I find that I cannot sleep, how could this have happened?

Today would have been my parent's 61st anniversary and although my mother passed away almost 5 years ago, my father loves her just as much, if not more than that first day on the bus.
Happy Anniversary and may we all be so lucky as to have known even a moment… Read full post »
It was a navy blue sailor dress...pleated all the way around, little tiny pleats that now remind me of an acordian, a big white collar with red pipimg at the edge and a tiny red bow in the front. It was the most beautiful dress and I loved it, but what I… Read full post »
"Beautiful day isn't it?"
"Do you know where I can find the vendor with the local honey?"
"What beautiful flowers..where did you find them?"
"Have a nice day!"
Ah, the farmer's market, I love the farmer's market but more importantly I love the "Farmer's Market Mentality.… Read full post »
My father was 17 when he enlisted in the Navy, nothing more than a boy, offering up his service and his commitment to his country. Just out of high school and with a new bride, I can't imagine what he was thinking. So many young men in the 50's doing the… Read full post »
It's because of her that my phone rang at 7:22 AM this morning...my day to sleep in.
It's because of her that my cell phone beeped with a new text at 7:30 AM this morning, again at 7:40 AM and yet again at 8:00 AM.
It's because of her that my… Read full post »

Do you ever watch Dr. Phil? I ask this question because I don't usually watch his show but over the holiday season, read "rerun season" I happened to catch a rebroadcast of his and realized that perhaps I had been missing something. Not… Read full post »
Being the oldest girl in a family of 8, yes 8, kids had it's advantages and it's disadvantages and very rarely did those two overlap except when it came to Christmas.
To know my mother was to love her, there was no other choice. She was outrageously beautiful, extremely talented, when… Read full post »
Last night I posted what I could call a funny little post about the events of my evening, attending a party alone. As I wrote my story my sense of humor took over and the story paractically posted itself. I thought it was funny, I hope you did as well.

It's official, well it's actually been official for some time now...I HATE GOING TO PARTIES, OPENINGS, RECEPTIONS, WEDDINGS, PIG ROASTS (those two are not synonymous with one another), CATTLE BRANDINGS, FREAK SHOWS, FUNERALS, ETC. YOU GET THE IDEA....ALONE!

As someone who works from home I can happily attest to the advantages of a home office. I can come to work in my jammies, yes, that is right I said jammies. I can go home for lunch, there is never a wait for the bathroom, I can run in and… Read full post »
I have to stop and gather my thoughts on this one as my emotions are all over the board. I am angry, incredulous, relieved and most of all grateful oh wait, did I mention pissed off as I sure as hell don't want to forget that one!

My daughter and I have fallen into a routine in the evening, we eat dinner, chat about the day, clean the kitchen and head to the couch to watch Wheel of Fortune. We work just as hard as the contestants trying to figure out the puzzle, we shout out answers at… Read full post »

Tell me about her voice, the way it was music to your ears

I thought this week would never end, my father left on Monday after a month long visit, I miss him already. Work has been crazy, nothing new there and I am grateful for the craziness as it means I have a job when so many don't. My daughter is fighting a… Read full post »

"It was a dark and stormy night..", wait that's been used.
