perv Tale – Please back Up

I have heard the term “Chic Magnet.” One may envision “The Fonz” of beholding such stellar status. Yes? Well how about Perv Magnet? Is there prestige of any proportion associated with such flattery? I think not. Sadly, this is what I have become as I late, and quite frankly I am just not in the mood. Let’s face …

maniac Tale – Can’t get Enough

After weeks of feeling like I was a foreigner in my own body suddenly,”The Mummy Returned.”  As if a switch has been turned back on, I have my boundless energy back. I’m just not so sure everyone else in my household is as thrilled as I am. I actually thought the kids would be ecstatic. After …

pandemic Tale – Worry Worts

There has been a pandemic sweeping through my house as of late, affecting both children and dogs alike. Oh ya, and me. For one, Layla has been barking at herself in the mirror quite a bit lately. The first time she did it a few months back, I figured it was the age thing. I mean she had been looking into …

weekend Tale – Wipe Out

My Weekend Party started as soon as I finally decided to leave work Friday evening. As I fire up my Xterra in the parking lot I see the red indicator light come on reminding me I need to get gas. I head to the nearest place around.  A massive self-service, round-robin style gas station. You know where there is one way …

skyrocketing Tale – Heat and all Rising

Did I just say Happy Summer? Ya well I’ve changed my mind. I’m ready for Fall already. For one thing, my house is a complete disaster. I thought my migraine medicine had cured my OCD and made me not give a rat’s ass, but it’s reached the breakthrough point. Unless someone is going to do an intervention tonite, I will be up ’til dawn …

keepin’ on reality tv Tale – Want me a Sister Wife

Yep, I am back at it again. To critiquing Reality  TV that is. Not that I have any qualifications what-so-ever. Let’s keep it real though. What does one really need besides a TV, a remote, and an opinion? Oh yes, and time. Not that I have of it these days. But I did. More than I wanted to for a month straight, and …

good time Tale – What’s fun?

As I sat on my bed last Thursday watching my daughter count Bosco’s nipples,  I realized I needed to get out for the night. STAT. It just so happened I had already made dinner plans for the following eve with a wonderful friend I hadn’t seen in quite some time. Now dining out is not usually my thing. I always hear my father’s voice …

thursday Tale – Least fav day

As of late, I have officially declared Thursday my suckiest day of the week. I am just too freaking tired on Thursdays now.  In the past if people asked whether I was a morning bird or a night owl, I’d quickly respond,“Both, sleep is overrated!” My entire life I have always burnt the candle on both ends. No sleep? No problem! Well, these days although I still cannot relax …

boy Tale – The Prince and I

Now I don’t often call my son a Prince though I feel he earned this title by simply being born, and I make no qualms in saying so. After all it was he who saved this distressed damsel. His existence alone was all she needed to know she must free herself from the darkness… And once she was rescued she …

dummy Tale – My second Epiphany

My first epiphany occurred right before the birth of my son. I mean like 30 minutes before. After 3 days of prodromal labor and my Dr. having gone away on vacation for Memorial Day weekend and the maternity staff  having decided I should not be admitted until I was 7 centimeters dilated since my progress was so slow and my progress …
