First World Problems

July 14th, 2016 · No Comments

I had to get a replacement phone recently.  Actually I’m on my second replacement phone. I have a Samsung GalaxyS 5.  There are several iterations of this phone and I’m thinking it’s on number 7 now. Jacob and David have Galaxy 4’s, so we don’t frivolously exchange phones.  I have the five and they have […]

Confession Time Here

July 13th, 2016 · No Comments

Last night Jacob and I went out to play Pokémon Go. I will be honest.  I’m not particularly interested in Pokémon.  Never have been.  Never fully understood the fascination with the cards, or what my kids did with them. Jacob downloaded Pokémon Go on his phone.  Last night he asked me if I wanted to go play […]

Today My Youngest Child Began High School

July 11th, 2016 · No Comments

A moment of silence please. There was no picture on the steps in his new uniform, shoes, haircut, and backpack.  There are, in fact, no new uniform, shoes, haircut, or backpack today.  I didn’t even think about it until we were about half-way there.  I made him take a selfie as we were driving down […]

If This Then That

February 7th, 2015 · No Comments

I have discovered the greatest app for my phone. It is called IFTTT-that stands for If This Then That. The brilliance behind it is if This happens on my phone, then That happens.    The This is called a Trigger and the That is called an Event. So, for instance, I have a Recipe on my […]

Chap Stick is Anti Aging?

February 3rd, 2015 · No Comments

Who knew? I mean, I guess I knew in a general sense that soft lips were young looking and dry lips were…unattractive, but anti-aging chap stick?  En-biggen the picture, the one on the right says “anti-aging” right there in the red dot. Usually, I buy the regular, old fashioned, chap stick.  In the bulk packages […]

Oatmeal is the new…

January 28th, 2015 · No Comments

Can’t really think of a pithy comparison…probably because there is nothing new about oatmeal.  Plain old bland oatmeal: I read on the interwebs recently that eating one serving of oatmeal a day will help reduce your cholesterol.  My cholesterol isn’t over the recommended limits, but it hovers on the high side.  I’ve heard about Cheerios […]

Remember when I did…

January 23rd, 2015 · No Comments

This? Well this week we had to do it AGAIN. Only this time they only took two more. Poor kid, I don’t think any of his back teeth came out without assistance. This time we went to the dentist and she did it without putting him under instead of going the oral surgeon route.  I’d […]

Knock, knock

January 22nd, 2015 · No Comments

Anyone here? Man! I can’t believe it’s been almost two years since I’ve been here.  I remember when writing here was an important part of my life. Since I was here last I have: I became a Grandmother!  And yes I do have the most precious grandchild in the world. Run a 1/2 marathon.  I […]

Things I wonder about. . .

February 13th, 2013 · 2 Comments

How come when the Orthodentist say, “we’re going to need to remove a few teeth” it suddenly turns in to EIGHT teeth? As my son pointed out to me a few is two, three at the most; NOT eight.  He is an astute child but they are his eight teeth. My BA-BEE! If anyone wants […]

The Owl Morning-Addendum Added

August 29th, 2012 · 2 Comments

This morning I took an owl to the Animal Shelter. When I dropped him off, they told me they didn’t do anything for them but waited for someone to pick them up. At 3-4 o’clock this afternoon! This was at 9:00 a.m. this morning. When I called the Wildcare people to tell them I’d dropped […]
