Ahhh...Mother's Day! As much as we have to do to prepare for the wedding reception in our backyard in two weeks, yesterday was so very relaxing - especially after Saturday where I hosted a yard sale for some friends. It was the most exhausting $43.25 I ever made. I kept... Continue reading

I have always been a down pillow lover. But lately...not so much. My pillows seem to have deflated like my car tire did a couple of weeks ago. Ugh. That's a whole nother story about living here in Pothole Pennsylvania. Anyway, I was thinking. Do you think my friendly dust... Continue reading

When I was pregnant with our youngest child, Gary and I didn't find out whether the baby was going to be a girl or a boy. I'm pretty sure that became the trend after he was born. Speaking of which, does it bug anyone else out there when people say... Continue reading

So far my day isn't going very well. It started off great. I sprang out of bed at 6:20, opened the blinds to let the sun shine into my bedroom, and off I went to Starbucks to get Gary his venti bold obsession. Ah. My good-wife deed for the day.... Continue reading

According to Mom, my brother and I should have each had two children. The first one being a boy, and the second a girl. After all, that is the way she did it. Why would anyone want more than two children if you do it the right way and have... Continue reading

Gabrielle got a detention yesterday from one of her teachers for - wait for it - talking in class. Okay, so maybe, I should take full responsibility for the following reasons: #1. She is my daughter and we all know that excessive chatting is probably inherited from my side of... Continue reading

Recently, Gary bet me that I couldn't tell a complete story if I was sitting on my hands. What? Do I really flail my arms uncontrollably and make a spectacle of myself when telling one of my never-ending stories? Okay, well maybe. I concede. Hey, he's the one who married... Continue reading

Perfect vision. I have prided myself by saying, "I have 20/20!" And then BOOM! I turned 43 and...shit...overnight, I needed reading glasses to find my reading glasses. I've tried to compensate over the years. Now, sometimes I can actually find them because I use them as a hair accessory...kinda like... Continue reading

Often our Sunday morning ritual is to go to Starbucks. Gary gets his bold fix and I grab a fountain soda from Wawa on the way. We sit in Starbucks. Gary reads the newspaper and I hook up to the internet and try to return e-mails, although I get very... Continue reading

LOL! I'm feelin your pain girl. I'd be happy to look good in a one piece suit. I know what you feels great when someone look great...why can't they just stop there? Do they have to add the five kids thing? Relating with you totally! Heading to Kelly Drive again today with hubby and bikes. We'll see how it goes. ;) Enjoy your day!
Three years ago I sold an adorable house to my friend Leslie, a lovely ambitious young woman who is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Love her. She is a lot like her mom, June, a dear friend of mine I have known for many... Continue reading

Ha! Love, love, love it! You are too funny. I especially love your first picture being that of the liquor store. Were you heading in there to get your weekly wine supply? I can see it now. Strolling along with your iPod on, camera in-one hand, and a bag with clinking bottles in the other. LOL! Thanks for the shout-out! Love reading your blog and following my fellow five kid mother! Cheers my friend! :)

Look at this... and this... Gross, huh? Now, I don't know when or how this happened because I just cleaned our home office not that long ago. Of course, that's pretty relative I guess. For example...I did clearly post in one of my previous blogs that it seems though it... Continue reading

Do mothers ever stop worrying about their children? I think not. Alex: I'm growing a beard. Me: you have any pics? Alex: Umm, yeah, you can see it a little bit in my new facebook photo. So, off I went to sign into facebook to see the photo.... Continue reading

MASGB. Love them. They are the initials of each of my kid's first names. Okay, so I still call them kids even though several are adults. Yikes! How did that happen? I was just changing their diapers not that long ago. Just to share a bit about them... Michael -... Continue reading

Chocolate or cheese. If you were told you had to go through life with one, but not the other, which one would you choose? The other night, I had a discussion with some friends about which one would reign supreme. I was torn on so many different levels. Given it... Continue reading
