Gonna Get My Commercial Driver’s License

A few nights ago I was watching television with Tom, something I hardly ever do.  Usually, when the kids go to bed, I head for the computer or grab a book.  I am not a big TV watcher.  And I hate watching TV with him because he channel surfs.  And as soon as I get interested […]

What Really Happens When the Cat is Away

Last night I reached the saturation point.  My house was filled with children last week.  My niece was here, two of Jenny’s girls, my children, Nancy’s child and maybe some other children that just wandered in at random, attracted by the mayhem.  It was as if a flock of locusts descended and they pillaged my […]

The Siren Song of Summer

I am so tired of summer I could shriek.  Remember those first golden days when the kids slept in, there were no lunches to make, no bookbags to pack, no homework to finish at the last second and there was much rejoicing?  Well, I’m over it!  I am tired of summer and ready for the […]

Why I’ve Been Hiding Lately

I know I haven’t had much to say lately, but that’s just the way it goes sometimes.  It’s either there or it’s not.  I no longer have a butt boil, my children are only marginally annoying and I haven’t fallen down any stairs lately.  In CNN speak, it’s a slow news week! But here are […]

Jennifer and the Deathly Smelly Books A Million Customer

I read Harry Potter yesterday, all in one day.  And this old woman was there at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday to receive her reserved copy.  And I was at the front of the line, something that has NEVER happened to me before. Here’s how the evening progressed.  I got there at 8:30, like a total idiot, […]


I stole this from Blue Momma’s blog, Life in the FishBowl.  I bolded the books I have read.  I bet Kiki has read over 3/4 of them!! From the list below: -Bold the ones you’ve read -Italicize the ones you want to read -leave the ones you aren’t interested in as they are 1.The Da […]

Broke Back Boobies

I was watching Brokeback Mountain on Saturday.  I love that movie because it’s such a beautiful love story.  However, there are some extremely graphic and disturbing scenes with which I am not comfortable.  I am not talking about the gay sex which is a tiny blip on my mental radar.  Hey to each his own.  Who […]

goddess patty

Great.  I just discovered that “Goddess Patty, which is the google term people are using to find my blog,  is an overweight dominatrix with her own, um, web-based business.  I am gonna have to come up with another term of endearment for my child!  But go ahead and google the term if you want a good […]

Why I’ll Be Famous One Day

Wow, I sat down with a totally different post in mind, but then I happened to check out my stats.  I LOVE WordPress!!!  It shows you what terms people typed in to find your blog.  What a hoot!!  Here is the list which I cut and pasted: These are terms people used to find your blog. […]

A Summer’s Day at the Amusement Park

I’m sorry I have been incommunicado; apparently the router Tom installed so he could use his fancy little laptop interferes with our internet connection.  And did he leave the fancy little laptop at home for me to use?  Oh no, I am not worthy!!!  So if you have a gripe, please direct it to him; […]
