We've all seen at least one viral picture of a woman in public with her dress stuck in her underwear, completely unaware she is being photographed. The online sharing and snickers will continue for hours on social media until the cute seven-year-old is caught on video wiping his booger on... Continue reading

Our good friend--and best man at our wedding--said, "John is a fascinating guy. He just told me the story about being hit by a train once." My eyebrows raised 3 inches off my face because I did not know this story. Turns out to be true. The man was hit... Continue reading

I will have to tell you because our cats, Opal and Otto, don't know how (can't be bothered ) to type...yet. For the record, I don't really like most perfumes, parfums, eau de parfums, eau de toilettes or eau de colognes myself because I don't find them pleasant. I smell... Continue reading

LOL! My husband's real name is Pat, but he goes by many alias's and I refer to him as "Poseidon" on my blog, so no way you could ever get his name wrong! I took Topamax briefly in 2004 for migraines. My doctor nicknamed it "The Barbie Pill" because she said it will make me feel "loopy." It most certainly did!

I stopped by the grocery store tonight, the store I frequent at least twice each week. John (yup, that it his real name), the cashier in the self-checkout section was there. Without meaning to armchair diagnose, I'm going to assume John is somewhere on that beautifully colored autism spectrum. He... Continue reading

Molly, I apologize for not responding to your comment sooner. I too have had very little time to devote to my own blog this year, but I am very sorry to hear about your Georgie. My best friend in high school had a manx. Beautiful creatures. Wishing you a peaceful holiday season with good memories to hold on to of Georgie. Thank you for reading :)

Isn't it amazing, Joscelyn? It does appear to be common that we all think everyone does this. Just makes us super cool ;)

Jennifer, it is very cool. Like your son, I just assumed everyone did this. It made learning more fun for me :)

Life has been crazy, beautiful this year, and I realized just this morning how close we are to nearing the end of it. Contrary to what my title suggests, this year has seen little of what I would call drama, but has had its share of challenges, mixed with new... Continue reading

Thank you, thank you. I am familiar with The Rainbow Bridge thanks to Poseidon's cousin Juleah. I've read it several times in the last few weeks. Hugs and peace right back at you JennyJenny :)

"I want to be honest with you, this isn't going to end well. Once they reach this age, and we see fluid in the lungs, they have maybe a month, tops, to live." This is what the vet told me on Friday morning. May 29, 2015. My routine is now... Continue reading

Almost sounds like a confession, except it's not! Busy Q1 of 2015. The most amazing boots ever...late Christmas gift... Continue reading

"Good God, you freak, it's just yarn. Yarn cannot kill you. That ball of purple isn't going to wrap itself around your throat. It cannot bite or pinch you. Hell, it doesn't have hands. It doesn't have teeth. Yarn can't even criticize this thing you are trying to knit. For... Continue reading

Throw back Thursday picture I found a few weeks ago that my friend snapped in 1996 while we were waiting for two other friends. On our way to see RENT at the Nederlander in NYC. What a great time and even greater memories. Finding the picture made me want to... Continue reading
