One Funny Reason We Should Watch Less TV and Eat Less Broccoli

It was an early sunshiny morning. Charlie (5) had awakened and slipped into the covers in the guessing room (the guestroom) to watch cartoons. That’s where I found him, looking all snuggly. Of course, my motherly instincts had me crawling in there with him to cuddle. We watched his show for a minute and then […]

How Don Draper Ticked Me Off In Spin Class

How do I look? I asked Charlie (5) before heading out to meet some friends for dinner. “You look original, Mom.” he said with approval. Hmm, I thought. I guess that’s better than extra crispy. Hey, wouldn’t it be funny to say that to clients at a tanning salon? “Hi there. Original, or extra crispy?…Bed […]

The Wheel of Fortune Fan

Finding the Funny in Going To The Allergy Doctor

So, I have been having sinus issues.  I saw an ENT, who said allergies are the culprit. What happens when you go to the allergy doctor for an allergy test? First, you fill out some paperwork at home. For whatever reason, my husband decided to fill out the forms and ask me the questions. I […]

Does this Chicken Smell Like Burned Plastic?

Picked Molly (8) up from her after school program and we headed home. It was cold and raining – the kind of weather that makes you want to sleep. And eat. To get dinner going, I put some raw chicken in water and turned it on to boil. The kids and I went upstairs to […]

A Not-So-Schmoopy Valentine’s Day

Had a regular (a-hem) girlie doctor check up today. My favorite question on the forms I filled out was “Do you use recreational or street drugs?” No. But great question, thanks for asking. They originally wanted to schedule the appointment tomorrow – ON VALENTINE’S DAY! Um, no thank you. For Valentine’s Day, I am hanging […]
