And Finally… Facebook

So, I gave in. I fianlly signed up for Facebook. I was an active non-participant for a long time. I knew all about it. I thought I knew enough about it not to get involved. But I did want to check out old enemies. (Were they still losers?) And I did want to see if […]

15 Minutes in Barney’s Shoes Department

Doesn’t take long to wreak havoc in Barney’s when there are tons of adorable booties on sale!

Alarming Posts

All these posts about alarms reminds me that in two weeks, we’ll be living in an alternate universe. The husbands will be off to work (if they still have jobs with this recession) and we’ll be lolling in bed while trying to plan in our heads how we’re going to get through the day without […]

Party Planning

Dear husband says, “Hey, let’s have a bash! A good old Party! Lots of people!” Then he downed another bourbon. I said, “Oh.” I took a look at the email invite list. Downed another bourbon. Now I’m planning a party.  Husband is at work. I’ve been to the Farmer’s Market, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, […]

Yellback: Cows have horns

Okay, Mermaid. I understand the childhood yearn for all dreams and images to actually be true. But really – I like the bulls have horns and cows (female) have those little nubby things that don’t even pass for horns on their heads. Now that was MY childhood image. Let’s google images for an actual image […]

Scissor Techniques

They’ve all done it at one time or another… Yes, third kid decided to apply her newly honed scissor techniques on something other than the cat’s tail. The refrain from a great song by The Who in Quadrophenia keeps ringing through my brain: Why should I care if I have to cut my hair. I […]

Air Pillow In Soul

On a recent travel expedition, Mermaid and I were browsing the SouthWest Airlines air shopping catalogue. We thought that the most important, desperately needed item was this: Mermaid and I were having quite a chuckle over the inflatable air pillow. I mean, how (insert word here – desperate, foolish, sleep-deprived, drunk, hungover, depressed) do you […]

Yellback to Tote Bag Post

I know this sounds ridiculous, but I am now carrying around baskets for my high end shopping and regular totes for my grocery shopping. Now I can distinguish between which bags I need to bring into the house, and which baskets I need to leave in the car or hide in the garage (until I […]

Just another weekend…

Can’t wait for this coming weekend – oh wait, it’s EASTER!!! Better start planning when I’m going to paint the eggs (after the slumber party but before the dentist appointment? Or should it be after the baseball practice but before the haircuts in the city? Or perhaps after the city visit but before the in-law […]
