Thanking those (ir)responsible

I'd like to thank all those responsible for the
great success I have had in my
recent gymnastic feat:
My Husband.
Our Refrigerator
The big puddle of water on the kitchen floor.

Yes, it is true.
Earlier this evening I did a perfect
One foot went north while the other foot
went south. 

The ice maker in the fridge is on the blitz.
Husband came in carrying a bag of ice
to put into the freezer.  The bag dripped water
all over the kitchen floor.
Husband failed to wipe up the water.
I came walking into the kitchen. . .
The rest is history.

Husband ran to help me up,
 (take a deep breath
as you read this)
he was LAUGHING!!

He's gonna really be sorry he laughed.

It's none of my business but I just have to ask. . .

I love the answers you leave each
week when I throw down a question.
Your answers are sooo interesting.

Once again -
"It's none of my business
but I just have to ask . . ."

Can you keep a secret?

When someone confides in you do you
consider it ok to tell your spouse or SO?

Is it ok to share the info with
someone who doesn't know the
person/people  involved?

When, if ever, is it ok
to share confidential

Jurassic Park, part 2

If you read yesterday's blog post you know
that we HAD, yes, "had"  a guest lizard
in our house.

Said guest made another appearance
early this evening,
again on-the-ceiling.Did I mention we have very high ceilings?

I am so proud of my husband who is
GREAT at thinking outside the box.

Since we couldn't reach the creepy lizard
husband got the wet vac (it has a very long hose)
and managed to suck the lizard into the vac.

I am happy to report the lizard
has been evicted from our house.

I am also happy to report that the
lizard was unharmed
in this covert action.

My own Jurrasic Park.

This guy is alive and well living in my house.
I saw him last night - on the ceiling.
We tried all manner of catching him . . .
but he was faster than we were.

What am I gonna do??????

HOT FLASH! (part 2)

(continued from previous post)

Hot Flashes during the Summer are brutal.
Here are my own tried & true
Survival Tips.

Pour on water.
Lots of water.

If water doesn't help,
add ICE.

Then have a Margarita.
And another.
And another.
And another.
(it may not ease the Hot Flash
but you won't really care)

"Don't you dare judge me!!"

Repeat after me:
"Stay near a Fan".

I love these hand fans.
"I decorate with them."
They're placed all over the house
within easy reach.

These are the BEST!!
A water filled container
with a finger-pump fan
all on a strap that fits around
your neck for convenience.
Fashion be damned.
I have been out in public on a hot day
and had people stop me and ask if
I would give them a spray.

If you're out shopping when you
feel a "FLASH" coming on,
simply step out of your shoes
and let your feet cool on the
tile floor of the store.
(no one will even notice)

Got Hot Flashes?
Tell me,
do they ever end???

Monday, June 20, 2011

You think you know summer?

You don't know Summer
unless you're having hot flashes
during the summer.

To be continued tomorrow.

Got Hot Flashes?

If only . . .

Happy Birthday AND Happy Father's Day!Three yrs gone from me, but always in my heart.
I love the new song,
"If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away".
How I wish I could visit you,
if only Heaven wasn't so far away.

Finding Sarah?

Finding Sarah?

Actually if anyone is looking for Sarah Ferguson she is not hard to find.  I've seen her all over the TV lately making the talk show circuit. 

She's busted.
She's sorry.
She's sad.
She's broken.
She's lost.
She has no money.
She didn't get invited to the wedding.
She can't cook.

I feel badly for the people of Joplin,
and Alabama.
I feely badly for a child I know
who has brain cancer.
I feel badly that people go to bed
hungry at night.

Someone needs to tell Ms. Ferguson
she is a 51 year old woman
and it is time to grow up
and become a responsible adult.

Problem solved.

When things go south for most people they don't have a team of professionals who belly-up to solve their problems.  And, when something is done to hurt one's feelings most people don't jump on a plane and fly to the jungle to become one with nature just "to get away".  And when there is a need for some extra attention most folks don't buy their grown children funny hats which they flaunt on TV to get some media attention.  And when most people run out of money they don't keep spending money they don't have.

Just my perspective.

This too shall pass. . .

Our teenage daughter's Bathroom.
Yes, there's more . . .


This is what my Mama taught me.
And she was right.

A guy from our church youth group
came by the other day, and in due time
he made a trip to the bathroom.
Daughter later told me he told her
at church, "Your bathroom is scarey".
She could care less.Yes.  I'm embarassed.

I was a messy teenage girl.
(though I won't confess that to Princess)

I'm one of these -


Were you neat as a Teenager?
How about now?
*this is a totally non-judgemental zone*

These are a few of my favorite things. . .

Julie Andrews (remember her?)
sang about her favorite things;
I am gonna Blog about a few of mine. . .

My Grandma gave this teapot to me
as a wedding gift.

The years have come and gone
and sadly, this teapot has broken.
I have replaced it twice.
Each time I look on ebay or in antique stores
and replace it with one that looks
exactly the same.

As long as I have this teapot
it seems as though Grandma
is close by.

My hydrangeas are in bloom.
Another Favorite.

This is my favorite "new find" of the summer.
Toenail Falsies.
But them at Walmart, $8.
I dare you to tell them from the real thing.

Tell me about your "Favorite Things" -
I wanna know.

It's none of my business but I just have to ask . . .

I love the answers you leave each week
when I throw down a question.
It was so interesting last week
learning how you each received
your name!

Once again -
     "It's none of my business
       but I just have to ask . . ."

Every household has rules,
at least a few -
or maybe a lot.
What was a rule(s) that was enforced in
your home when you were a child?

Any you find unique or unusual
as you look back?
