Sorry Starbucks, I no longer love you a latte!

Dear Starbucks or should that be Dear John, Yes I am breaking up with you.  It has been a tumultuous caffeine ridden realtionship.  It has had its jittery ups and exhausted downs.  I have gone from simple lattes to cappucinos to eggnog lattes to  non fat skinny mochas no whip to skinny non fat soy […]

See Jenn Tri to write and eat pancakes!

I love to write.  I love pancakes.  If I could write all day with a big stack of pancakes beside me I would be a happy camper.  I would be a HUGE happy camper but happy doing what I love and eating what I love. But I don’t do it…often enough.   Truth is I […]

Good-bye old friend….

It’s that time of year again.  I have avoided it for several years but it is a must this year.  It’s time.  I have to say hello and good-bye and both will be painful in a way only women can understand. My time came earlier than for most of you. I have to …I have […]

What’s my excuse…well let me tell you!

Can’t keep quiet about this and apparently lots of other people can’t either.  I wasn’t going to write about this especially today since I have a to-do list that would kill anyone and deadlines but I can’t keep quiet. By now most of you have seen this photo: Nothing wrong with the photo.  She has […]

My life as a Sitcom: Am I turning into Maxine? OMG

Lately I have been noticing alot of little things and they are all starting to irritate me.  Then I had an awful thought: “Am I turning into one of those cranky people that complains all the time about the little things? This picture came to mind: Oh no!  After I tell you my thoughts and […]

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 […]

Auto correct, spell check and still the typos continue..enjoy all of mine :)

A dear friend of mine, Sherra has a wonderful weekly blog post called  Typo Tuesday at her website: Sherralifelesson.com She has an eye for typos and most are fall down on the floor funny. My latest favorite was found on a restaurant menu that stated: Pan fried Tilapia served over oven roasted tomato sauce on […]

Look what the younger crowd has done to me…

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 […]
