My life as a sitcom: Couponing at its worst!

Well extreme couponing has taken on a new meaning in our house.  I skillfully kept my husband from seeing the show of the same name for many months. My biggest fear was that he would see it and being the lover of a great deal I would soon be tasked with clipping coupons, looking for […]

Asking for a do over as I begin again on my virtual triathlon

Well I had good intentions of starting my virtual triathlon from Virginia to Florida  on Jan 14th.  Well as they say: Sh*&t Stuff happens, like life. Also had good intentions of posting my progress on a weekly basis.  (see above) Wish I could get a do over but lately I have been like a dog […]

My life as a sitcom…new ways not to shower!

I thought having two guys that worked out and all their smelly work out clothes had pretty much indoctrinated me to the world of manly smells. Add on the experience of three pre-teens who thought showering was optional and I claimed to be a smell expert.   Out of 2 daughters and  a son I […]

Communication at it’s worse..my life as a sitcom, baby boomer edition.

It was bound to happen.  Hanging with the younger crowd has led to me to say something that even has me shaking my head. I have had the good fortune for most of my life to have little ones around.  As a nurse I have been blessed to witness quite a few babies take their […]

Grandma’s T-shirt had a best friend too! Who knew?

Remember how I discovered my t-shirt has a best-friend?   Well it turns out that party in our  closest has been going on for generations. My grandmother was born in 1902 and lived a full 90 years.    That is a lot of party time for her bra’s and shirts blouses.  Honestly I am not sure she […]

My T-shirt has a best friend..who knew?

I was recently in one of my favorite stores.  In my group of friends we refer to it by its little known french name  Tarjay…you may know it as Target.    A couple of my friends refer to it as the “hundred dollar store” since that is what their bill always seems to be. I must […]

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 […]
