These fascinating creatures are both sub-species of the homosapien family. Subtle, but distinct differences separate the two, however, Rattus Carpeti & Hominous (pronounced om-i-nus) Gracilli share their environment & have similar appearance & behaviour patterns when observed in their natural habitat. Found the world over, the North American variety of the Rug Rat & Yard Ape… Continue

I joined an online discussion recently. A mom's baby was turning 11 and she was surprised at how fast the time went by.
I responded by telling a story of the boys. By the time I hit the reply… Continue

Surely by now, you all know how this works. But just in case, allow me to take you by the hand & coddle your woefully out-of-touch ass through the process. It’s Friday…& though not one of us has yet settled on an actual title, it’s all about the F words. So @$#*%! Friday will do. We post our funny story, joke, e-mail or even video of the week, & try to throw in some of our… Continue

Journals are my crack
. They get me excited, tingly, and
itching with a feeling of exhilaration each time I break a new one open. I love writing the date on the top line, followed by a verbal onslaught ranging from daily reflections,… Continue

This morning hubby and I snuck out of the kitchen and family room as we do most other mornings to wash our faces and brush our teeth before the kids find out that we are missing. The reason we do this is to Continue
avoid the avalanche of questions about every single little thing they
find on the bathroom countertops. Can't you see I'm brushing my teeth
here? How am I supposed to answer all these questions with toothpaste
in my mouth? So we sneak away. Hoping no one will find us…

Self-evaluation is never easy. No one likes to admit when, or how many
times, they are wrong. This is especially true for me. But,
self-evaluation is necessary for any real, beneficial changes to occur
in ones behaviors.
And it seems on days that I am most adament about avoiding the
blemishes on my character, my husband turns into a gigantic, gaudy
mirror, waiting with baited breath to point out that I'm not as sweet
as I claim to be.

I am pleading with the SUN. Please come back. Bring me warmth, energy, and enthusiasm. Take away the cold, blistering wind. Destroy my sweaters, wool socks, and mittens. Bring me sundresses, flip flops, and sunscreen. Keep me warm, tan, and freckled…..a pool by my feet, a cocktail within reach. All of this, in Mother Nature’s name I pray, AMEN.
It’s winter in good old Pennsylvania, and I absolutely hate it. How do I cope? Not well. Chocolate Fudge Torte, Apple Cake, Fudge… Continue

Some modern vows delete it, but most who wear wedding bands promised it "in the presence of these witnesses." You know the part ... "in sickness and in health." Few think of the likelihood of experiencing sickness, physical or emotional, in married life. It's inevitable, though, that infirmity will strike during life together and may range from stomach flu to kidney stones to long term or terminal illness to depression and anxiety. It's hard to live out our vows "in sickness and in health."… Continue

If you can’t trust my word, what CAN you trust? Isn’t that what they say? Apparently my word means nothing. What’s wrong with me? Didn’t I promise I’d be back on track?
No more late posts, no more procrastination. Once again, a day late and a dollar short. Actually, let’s be honest. A day late would be understandable, but FIVE WEEKS?
I have no excuses.
I took, as I like to lovingly call it, a Christmas vacation. I’ve just decided to return to real life. By now I should know.… Continue
