April Fool's

Tuesday, November 24, 2009      2 comments

No, it's not that time of the year. A lady sitting in the chemo office said, I've got two newspapers. It reminded me of April Fool's Day. When my kids were younger, I'd put out $20.00 several weeks before April 1st. I'd tell them that the on... Read more

Once I Was a Wimp

Monday, November 23, 2009      4 comments

I don't like exercise and I used to HATE it. Of course, I had bad knees and was a couch potato. My grandson was in Kindergarden and he took a bus home. I would meet the bus everyday and it was a whole 6 houses away--around the corner, so I co... Read more

Ad Snob

Sunday, November 22, 2009      4 comments

In a former life--younger years--I was a journalism major in College. What I liked best was proof reading, which is looking for spelling and vocabulary errors. I still do it, in a way. You know those pesky fliers you get on your door or under... Read more

No More Moving!

Saturday, November 21, 2009      4 comments

I told my DH to find our home for EVER. I hate moving and didn't want to ever move. Well, I shouldn't have had 4 kids. I've helped everyone of them move--more than once! I hate moving. I hate packing and storing and sorting. My oldest daug... Read more

Can You Say Stupid?

Friday, November 20, 2009      8 comments

I've discovered something as I've gotten older. I'm not necessarily getting smarter. I am known around my house as the Dental Floss Queen. I have Dental Floss and plastic picks for teeth in every room, my purse, car, etc. And if I can't get... Read more

Can Illegal Drug Use be Funny

Thursday, November 19, 2009      6 comments

No, drug use is NOT funny. However, looking back at certain things can cause one to laugh. As my DD and I were walking this a.m., we were talking about some of the things kids try nowadays. It seems one of the things they are doing is drinkin... Read more

Ever since I was a child, I have mimicked people. If they have an accent, I try to copy it. If I'm walking behind them and they walk differently, I find myself copying their walk. If they have a facial tic or say a word with a funny mouth sha... Read more

Politically incorrect

Tuesday, November 17, 2009      3 comments

This is a touchy subject--but it's funny too. I live in the central valley of California. Our biggest business is agriculture and we supply the world with food. That's what we do. There are some foods that would be scarce without us. Anyway... Read more

Blogging full time

Monday, November 16, 2009      5 comments

How do they do it? How do bloggers and newspaper columnists keep the words coming. I love to write. I was a journalism major in college. However, coming up with constant new ideas is hard. I ask other people for help with topics and then pu... Read more

Went to the mountains with a daughter and 2 grandbabies (not hers). Had a good time. It was sunshiney and cold. Had a good fire going. The babies had fun running around the sand on the beach and then up higher in the snow. We had to leave e... Read more

I have never been much of a t.v. or movie viewer. I prefer reading. However, our direct t.v. or something is able to record programs we don't have time to watch. So I've started recording programs and watching them while exercising. It makes... Read more

Made up Words

Thursday, November 12, 2009      2 comments

I was reading an ad last night and it said that a puppy had a ginormous appetite. That got me to thinking about other made-up words. We have several in our family. One is ignoramous as in, he's an ignoramous because he can't remember his addr... Read more

What is Petite?

Wednesday, November 11, 2009      8 comments

My husband makes a habit of looking over all the bills with a fine-toothed comb. I'm always buying things for the kids and grandkids and he wants to know what, when, where, how, etc. He saw a charge for the petite section and said, "Who was th... Read more

Mothers and Dieting

Tuesday, November 10, 2009      1 comments

I just read a blog on SP about the image we have of our body and how it's affected by our mothers' dieting. My mom never dieted. She was probably wearing a 14 or 16, but her self esteem was terrific. If someone commented on a dress she was we... Read more

Consult a Doctor

Monday, November 09, 2009      2 comments

This is a disclaimer: don't try this at home kids! I get a kick out of diets saying, consult your doctor before trying this diet. What's he going to say? It's about time you got off your fat butt?! My doctor has recommended every diet unde... Read more
