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

I have never actually read the book ” Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” but after the following conversation with my husband I believe he may be from Jupiter. Turns out I don’t need to talk to my parents to get funny posts, I can get them right in the car having a […]

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 […]

My life as a sitcom, part 3! (another Bettyism)

My parents, both 85, own a computer.  I am happy to say that it is  more than an expensive way to play solitaire.  My father uses it to keep up with friends, find and send jokes, and when the stars are aligned he can open up photos sent to him  and my Mom of their […]

Friends don’t let friends ride their bikes naked!

Well its true!  Actually I am pretty adamant about not letting my friends ride naked.  Those that do get me riled up and on my soapbox. Wait.  Maybe I should clarify naked. OR Maybe I should have gone with my first choice for a title which was really a question. What do ER nurses call […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
