Tale from my Crypt – Pot in the Air

Shortly before surgery last May my mother insisted on accompanying me to my pre-op appointment. I warned her gory details could be discussed. She said it was fine, as she wanted to be there to support me as she always has. Not only had I had been very serious and selective in choosing my surgeon, …

Daily Drama – Carry me Through

I am hoping the two hours of shut-eye last night will be enough to carry me through today because I’ve got a gangload to get done at work today. No joke here folks. Sleep eluded me, despite the fact I tried counting just like the Dr. told me. Counting the number of times my daughter …

drama jr. Tale – “The World is Against Me”

My oldest tells me, “The World is Against Me,” during a very hysterical phone call I received at work yesterday. Why? Because she’s already made the determination three entire weeks into the Semester, the highest grade she will possibly be able to receive in some 1 credit class is an 87. Of course, I am highly …

Daily Drama – My Florence Nightingale

Knowing I have been suffering from my chronic tonsillitis for many days now, my darling daughter has been slipping down to my room in the dark of the early morn each day, a cup of ice water in hand. I instantly feel better as she sits at the edge of my bed, flashing her 1000-watt …

Daily Drama – Quasi Dr. Deal

Somehow not only do I keep managing to forget the throat Dr’s name, but his appointments as well. Perhaps it’s subconscious as I was slightly highly offended he stated I needed a nose job in addition to a tonsillectomy. Then when I saw all the photos of the Res-pumped lips I wondered if perhaps I …

Why yes I crack many a joke about how I loathe yard work. Because I DO. Indeed I am known to say I do little more outside than move shit around because it’s TRUE. Yet, still I am a very lucky girl to have a Piece of Paradise out there of all my own. While occasionally …

Tale from my Crypt – Heartfelt

I came across this photograph which brought me back a couple of years… One night when I announced it was time for “shower-power,” my son thought this entailed dumping all my Bath & Body Works wash down the drain.  Just because…just because “I don’t know,” I was told. For some reason I was more hurt …

tasty Tale – Quest for The Best

Since like many busy professionals and parents, I have little time to actually stop and eat. Therefore, I am always on a Quest for The Best foods I can chow down on the go. For my own health, there are several factors I need to consider when purchasing such quicky foods: Low sodium, sugar, and …

Daily Drama – Typical Tuesday

So I told my son I loved this morning, and to have a “Great Day!,” yet sent him off  to school with no lunch or snack. Oh, I also managed to remove his assignment book out of his backpack. I just cannot remember why?!? Wooow. I did save face by hauling ass to the school …

Daily Drama – Please get Me

My 17 year-old-daughter is known to leave detailed lists starting off with Please get Me. It’s all good, as I very much appreciate knowing what she needs. The trouble is I can never seem to get the number of razors quite right. While I admit Math has never been my forte, I for certain do …
