Letters I never intend to send

I love writing letters. Especially ones with such raw emotion, with vigor….I love vigor, and you can vent all your angers, frustrations, hurts, and sadness without repercussion or worries. So today while battling with Pickles Magoo on his napping (or failure to take one) I thought I might take a moment to relax. Catch up [...]

I am never bored….

Not true….I am actually bored quite often. My therapist Patricia “Pat” always tells me, “Bored is healthy, bored is good.” Bored is good for the boring. Pft! No really, I like being bored, but I feel unaccomplished. I know, sounds crazy, which is why I pay $75 a hour for a great therapist! Anyway, I [...]

Being the oldest child of any family is a real pain in the neck. Really, it sucks a giant goats ear if you have to know. Speaking, clearly, from experience. I, am the oldest of 5 children. Not all from the same mother. Hang in there…. I have 2 “blood” siblings from my mother, then [...]

Moms, grandmoms, Great-grandmoms, just about any mom you can think of asks this question when they see a young child and or baby:Is he/she good? I mean seriously? What kind of question is that? When anyone asks me that I truly think about messing with them a little and telling them how awful my child [...]

Wrong Tube of Toothpaste

Oh this is going to be such a long summer. I so desperately need to get my Big G involved in something. Crafts, arts, exercising, something other than his Wii, the daily dip in the pool, and his short stint of cartoons for the day.This morning while we were all rushing around trying to get [...]

Love ya!!

I just love me some bloggy awards. They are just the coolest because you have bloggy girlfriends who think you are just awesome for being and think highly enough of you to share the honor. My dear bloggy friend Valerie who is the epitome of light bestowed this wonderful award upon me and now, I [...]
