Blogging for Dummies (That would be me.)

I just spent the evening at a class for bloggers over at Twin Cities Daily Planet, learning how to make this little ol' blog well, better. Afterwards, I went and had a post-lesson beer with two friends and discussed what we had taken away from this little exercise. To...

Give me a minute…

Yesterday, I had another long run. 12 miles, to be exact. It was lovely... and no, I never thought I'd hear myself say that. But it was; the morning was cool, the fall colors were glorious and Hubby ran the first two miles with me, which made for good company. What...

Keep on Truckin’!

I think my personal mottos could use some work.A friend read me my horoscope last week, and, to me, it was the most comforting, wonderful thing I ever heard and I've been repeating the last line over and over to myself. The line? "It's not too late."I've been meaning...

It’s all relative.

I just found my elder son, teary-eyed in the basement."What's wrong?" I asked, concerned.He looked up at me, bottom lip trembling, and said, "We're poor."Oh, for the love of pete. Hubby and I had just had a talk with the kids expanding the current notion of...

Birthday blog.

That's right. Today is my birthday. Because I am the meanest mom in the world, we started with a forced 5K/family fun run. Yup. I said "fun run" and don't let my kids tell you otherwise. They just don't understand grown-up fun is all.I'm not sure what the rest of the...

You have got to be kidding me.

Dang, that was fast. We made it to day six of school before someone was home with the flu. I don't know how she does it, but we've got a daughter (hereafter known as "the carrier") who catches every single strain of bug that comes through the public school system. I...

Oh, no, he din’t!

If you are friends with me on Facebook, then you've already heard this one, but still....I came back from an 8 mile run this morning and hubby asked me how it went. "Okay, I guess, but it took 1:27 and I really wanted to finish in 1:20 even."Hubby rolled his eyes,...

Just think about it….

That's it. I'm not kidding. My birthday is coming up and dang nabbit, the only problem is that I'm turning 41 years old and not 71.Today cemented it. Apparently, one of our local newspapers ran an article about our little retail corner. All day I have been inundated...

Who knew?

Well, isn't this just a kick in the head? I'm not even sure how it happened, but I've become someone who, when facing down a seriously mean and crabby attitude, looks over her options (liquor, chocolate, running far, far away from home...) and spontaneously decides,...

Back to school blues-

Eeeep.   You know, I'm a fairly busy person. Five kids, my own business, these things require a certain amount of organization. Usually that looks like me, squirreling away things that I know that we'll need so that just about anytime one of the kids says, "Mom!!! I...

  • Pam on There are RULES, dangnabbit!Wow! Who is the noble cobbler? Mine took six weeks to repair the strap on my bag that I carry every day. I am aware that your cobbler didn't say that they would be ready in two days, he just agreed that she could pick them up. I am delighting myself with the fantasy of her coming in to get her eight unrepaired boots and stamping her tiny foot while said cobbler merely swings his awl to point to the wall -- Ready in Two Weeks.
