A little wine with Wednesdays Whine!

I make it a rule not to post on Facebook or blog when I am especially crabby.  Not that I think all posts or status updates should be cheery.  I maintain this boundary to mainly protect myself from getting in a heap of trouble which I do often enough when I open my mouth before […]

Motherhood Deja Vu or why I needed a do-over for the day at 8am

Mother’s Day is this Sunday and I have had a real life reminder of how EVERY Mom deserves breakfast in bed, a massage and a vacation. Monday morning found me starting a week of being in charge of  three of my grand kids ages 6, 5 and 5 months. Piece of cake or so I […]

It’s “I may not be fast but at least I am Fashionable” Friday

We all have our addictions.  For many women its shoes.  I have a slight big addiction to cute and colorful workout wear.  I knew I had a problem when looking through my closet I actually had more work out wear than regular clothes. Guys definitely would not get this.  I generally wear my work out […]

Why Women Should Hire Secret Service Agents!

I have been resisting writing this post but I can’t keep quiet any longer.  I guess the Secret Service Scandal is now considered “old news” but I am still scratching my head over the stupidity of these “chuckle heads” I am not naive enough to think that this is the first time this has happened.  […]

Pippa Middleton plays with guns and Angelina Jolie gets engaged..I care because??

I am truly wondering why this stuff made the headlines on Good Morning America this morning. The Pippa Middleton story about her and her French entourage of  handsome rich guys pointing guns at the paparazzi was the top focus.  Evidently pointing a gun, real or fake is a big no no in France.  The best […]

Never had a mug shot before but I do now !

This past January I had to renew my driver’s license.  Last time was easy.  I did it all through the mail.  This time I had to actually go to the DMV, sit forever, pay my money, have my photo taken and finally get my new driver’s license . Well I sort of got my new […]

My life as a sitcom part 2!

My hubby has the dubious honor of spending a few nights a week with my parents. It works out well for all of us. He has a homey place to stay while away, my parents enjoy his company and my siblings and I appreciate the weekly check-in on the folks. It is also the source […]

Owning my own story of Marathon Madness

Registration opened today for the Marine Corps Marathon to be held on Oct. 28th.   The marathon hadn’t crossed my mind much this year.  I registered for the 2011 Marine Corps Marathon and then ended up bowing out and registering for physical therapy instead 🙁 I really wanted to run it and have it be my […]

Why Facebook is alot like riding in your car.

Yes I am on Facebook.  Yes I have a love hate relationship with it. I love connecting with friends I might not see, offer love and support during trying times and laugh at everyday mishaps. And yet  some of my friends post things that make me scratch my head. So why is facebook like riding […]

My life as a sitcom..or real life is funnier and more real than reality TV

Why my life should be a comedy show: I am making a case that my favorite comedy writers should just call me up and ask me for the latest happenings at the Ross household.  We seem to have an endless series of comedy routines unfolding daily. So first up..my parents.  Bless their 85 year old […]
