Too much gravity at our house..everything ends up in the basement!

Does anyone else have this problem?  Every house we have owned seems to have too much gravity.  The house seems to find all the excess stuff we have lying around and pulls it  into the basement.  The “stuff” has no issues with infertility because it breeds overnight and at a rapid pace quickly filling any […]

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.  […]

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 […]

Gifts of the Heart

I had a gentle reminder last week about the importance of gifts from the heart.  First when I witnessed it and second when I saw the photo that captured the simple joy of giving.   My grandson, Cristiano, gave his mother some “flowers” for her birthday. It was a sweet moment for both of them. The […]

Would you like fries with your latte?

I used to be a proud non-coffee drinker.  Couldn’t stand the stuff. I really wondered what the fuss was all about . My husband disliked coffee as well so when coffee drinkers came to our house they were out of luck. When I gave a party if a guest offered to bring something I would […]

Aren’t we all kind of a Big Deal?

This photo says it all.  Little Miss Ava is a charmer in every way, beautiful blue eyes, a head full of curls and that wonderful toddler attitude that the world revolves around her,and ONLY her. Put her in this tank top and the package is complete! I just laughed when I saw her sporting this […]

Back in the saddle again

Its been awhile since I wrote a new blog post. Have I ever mentioned that I have turned procrastination into an art form? Actually procrastination is not the right word. There is no right word for this but a phrase “putting what I love to do last on the list” Turns out I have plenty […]
