@#$$$&% mornings.

Before we go any further, let me just say this: I love my husband. He is charming and handsome and my absolute favorite person to spend time with. He is supportive in a way that is unflagging, he has an image of me that is better than what I know myself to be and...

It’s the most, wonderful time of the year…

Next to Christmas, this is my favorite time of the year. No, not spring.... Tax season. I know, I know... this places me firmly in a rather specialized niche of individuals, like the folks that order wigs from the back of magazines or civil war re-enactors. Kooky, but...

Adventures on the 84D.

I love riding the bus. Which is probably no surprise to anyone who knows me, given the fact that I hate, no, LOATHE driving. But it's more than that really. After a long day of work, I like sitting on the bus surrounded by, but not actually interacting with, people....

Falling, falling, falling…

My husband recently finished reading a novel entitled "Things Fall Apart." I think of it every time I see the many, many projects that need to be done around our house. Although my book would be entitled "Things Fall Apart Because Your Darn Kids are Destroying Things...

Lovely silence.

I am alone in the house. Let me say that again; I am. ALONE. In the house. I think the last time that happened my dear husband had taken the kids out shopping for Y2K supplies just in case the airplanes really were going to fall from the skies and all the ATMs burst...

How about “Be nice to Mommy?” That’s a nice one…

I'm not the only one who's fond of mottos. My children all have their own, proud doctrines by which they live their lives. Our oldest has adhered to hers staunchly ever since, as a very determined 3 year old, she stamped her foot, put her hands on her hips and...

Nothing new under the sun.

If there is one thing that the internet has taught me, it's that I have never had an original idea. Go ahead, Google anything- ANYTHING! If there isn't already a website devoted to it, someone has already bought the domain name, on the off-chance that someone would...

The times, they are a’changin’

Last night we were playing cards with our neighbors when one of them asked how long we'd been married.   "It'll be fifteen years this fall," my husband replied.   "Yes," I agreed, waggling my left hand fingers at him, "and I believe 'shiny/pretty' is appropriate for...

Hope Eternal.

One of our twin daughters is in vision therapy, which has me spending exorbanent amounts of cash on a process that I strongly suspect might be hogwash.   This week, for example, I'm supposed to read to her while she stares into different colored lights. This is...

I’m fond of mottos.

I'm fond of mottos. I find it comforting to think that life's big lessons can be summarized in ten words or less. "You are what you do consistently." That's been a big one with me, lately. "You can have anything, but you can't have everything." Ooooo, that's a good...

  • 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.
