OH. MY. GOSH. I was just browsing watches at a website (TheWatchery.com) and my jaw droppped open when my eyes saw this honking baby. THAT, ladies and gents, is a real watch! Isn’t that the most gorgeous hunk of timepiece you’ve ever seen?! When I am rich, I’m going to get me one of those […]

I’m really happy have joined some excellent blogrolls recently. One is Frugal Hacks, a branch off one of my favorite mommy blogs, In a Shoe. And the other is Red Hot Drops, a new group put together by some lady Entrecarders. I’m glad to see a woman-based EC club! I am also a member of […]

Veggie Shots

When I was a kid, I had a friend whose little sister has to get vitamin shots (B12 shots). When I asked why, they told me it was “because she wouldn’t eat her vegetables.” The poor little girl was in absolute terror when “shot time” rolled around. She screamed and cried before the appointment, and […]

She’s Totally Desperate

I don’t usually talk politics here on this blog. It’s too stressful. There just aren’t any good statesmen anymore (except Ron Paul! :D). If I think about politics too much, I’ll explode. I have my blood pressure to think about. And what a mess that would make all over the walls, tsk tsk. Anyway, I […]

Telephone Tip

Comments Off on Telephone Tip

I don’t know WHAT it is with my telephone number, but I get about 12 or more telemarketing calls A DAY. I screen everything through my answering machine so I don’t have to deal with them. However, they are pretty nasty in that they wait for the answering machine message to finish, then they hang […]

Something at the dinner table last night reminded us of a HEE-LAR-EE-US video of Lucille Ball. I can’t remember what that thing was that caused us to remember it anymore, lol. But the video is a clip from the I Love Lucy TV show, one of my favorite shows as a kid. I did so […]

Mother’s Day is coming! Have I got a perfect gift idea for you! Pearl jewelry! What could possibly be more feminine and more matronly than pearls? I don’t think there is anything! I adore pearls. More than any other kind of jewelry, I think that pearl jewelry is most beautiful. It’s milky luminescence and soft […]

5 Minutes for 5 Minutes for Mom

Comments Off on 5 Minutes for 5 Minutes for Mom

In my browsing of Entrecard blogs, I frequently peruse bloggers’ sidebars. Am I an aberration? Do most blog readers read the sidebars? i wonder. I have kept my sidebar content to a minimum, but not really by choice. It’s because I have not yet settled on a permanent theme for the blog. AND there’s that […]

I was asked to talk about one of my most embarrassing moments. It took me quite a long time to think of one. Not because I never have them, but because I ALWAYS have them. It has been very hard to pin one down. I finally remembered quite a silly moment. It’s from long, long […]

OK, I don’t spend all of my time thinking about tornadoes! I think is is– what– my third post on them?! I talk more about tornadoes than all the snow we get around here! But I do have a fascination with them. I would be a tornado chaser if I didn’t have children. šŸ˜‰ I […]
