Happy Manuyear. This used to crack us up, when we were kids. Seriously, what the hell were we thinking?! Anyways, Happy New Year all you fantastic people!! ..And try not to step in any of that manuyear stuff. BAHAHAHAHA (give me a break, I started drinking at 4:00 and I already have my hangover) Gotta go watch the ball drop. Where’s Dan??
He’s got margaritas in the fridge and margarita glasses chilling in the freezer. He’s picking up Mexican food from our favorite little restaurant. He’s still gonna fall asleep by 9:00…but at least he’s making an effort. That’s New Year’s Eve at my house. ..Gotta love ‘The Man’. I know I do.
*Ring* *Ring* *Ring*
To most of you, New Year’s Eve is the night for everyone to party to the max. “A time to *ring* in the new”. But for me, no matter where I am, no matter how many years pass, no matter how much fun I may appear to be having, it’s the time when I think about the *phone call*. The call that we got shortly after midnight. The one that made me hear my mom cry, for the very first...

1. Clean out the basement storage room before I become the next featured freak on Hoarders. 2. Travel more. 3. Get rid of the old clothes I continue to hold on to, thinking I will shrink back into them. 4. Visit my mom more. She’ll be 89. She won’t be here forever. 5. Paint more artwork. How is it that I stopped? Oh yeah, the having kids thing. 6. Play my guitar again. How is it...
It has to be Madonna, cause she's the only one who...
And This Is Why I Hate Skiing
I don’t consider myself a germ-a-phobe, but I may have to change my title. I am becoming increasingly repulsed by the, all to common, uncovered sneeze…and the proverbial “i’m stopping the flow of germs by coughing into my hand” thing. I see no reason for civilized people to engage in this caveman-like behavior. When you do this, you are spreading germs. You are...
Get ready Chicago. I’m afraid the weight of it all is going to make you sink. Yep, sink right into the Chicago River. I mean, that train was FULL. So, SO, full of people, and bags, and I know what my kid had in her bags alone,…so save yourselves!!! Save yourselves NOW! Yes, I’m afraid Chicago is goin down. This is definitely going to make the headlines. Please be sure to spell...
I hate skiing. I hate skiing. I hate skiing. …So, hey,..we just got back from skiing!
Ten In Ten
1. I have better friends on the internet than I do in real life. 2. I love my mom more than I thought I did. 3. It’s really easy to put on 15 pounds and really really hard to take it off. 4. I still can paint a pretty good piece of artwork (if I do say so myself) 5. I swear a lot more thanks to you fuckers. 6. I’m really good at flip cup. 7. My kids still think I’m cool...
MY MOMMA IS HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL!!!!
This time it’s for real. She is there. It has been confirmed! Thanks everyone for the well wishes. And Merrrry Christmas to all!!! Love, JeeNeeBee
Keeping Finger's Crossed
Okay, take two. They just said my mom will be released from the hospital in a half hour. I want to believe them. I really, realllly do. But they said the same thing yesterday and it never happened. So, keep your fingers crossed! I mean, unless you have to go to the bathroom or something. K-thanks-bai.
Oh, and one more thing...
Also, Susanimate was the one who got me on tumblr. Please forward all formal complaints to her. Thank-you…and Happy Holidays. Sincerely, JeeNeeBee
You were born the day before baby Jesus. Does that...
Susanimate, From the moment I met you on ‘the twitter’, I knew we were friends. You are pretty, and you are awesome. You are pretty awesome! I love that you are funny, ..and that you think I am funny (mostly that you think I am funny). You care about others deeply..and when you don’t, you let them know. I LOVE that about you!! But most of all,..the thing I really, really, love...
And Then They Changed Their Minds..
Mom’s still in the hospital. Maybe tomorrow. :(
Oh Happy Day!
They just released my mom from the hospital! She WILL be home for Christmas!! YIPEEEEEE!!!
COFFEE CAKE for Lynn
Happy Birthday Lynn! Here’s some coffee. Here’s some cake. IT’S COFFEE CAKE! *Jeannie does the birthday dance here* (Oh, and sorry for yelling, but COFFEE CAKE does that to me) Enjoy your big day!! ***hugs and smooches***
The Show Must Go On!
So, it looks like my mom is going to be in the hospital for Christmas. They still don’t know what is wrong with her, and yesterday she had a blood transfusion. It’s SO sad. But the saddest thing is watching a scattered few of my brothers and sisters do the “freak out”. This kind of freak out: “now what are we going to do for Christmas?” and..”I guess we...
When Trains & Tumblr Collide
I think Terry and my daughter are on the same train. Hey Terry, you want me to bring ya a beer when we get to the Train Station?? …Or a mason jar drink??
She's The Only One I Got!
They took my mom to the hospital tonight in an ambulance. (She’s going to be 89 next month.) They are admitting her. I’m confident she is going to be okay. She has to be. She’s the only mom I got!!! Say an extra one for her tonight, pleeease!!
Three Long Island Ice Teas later……and I still know my name.
Christmas Parties Are Confusing
What’s worse than going to your office Christmas Party? Going to your husband’s. And no, I don’t mean YOUR husband’s. Relax, I’m not going to your husband’s Christmas Party. I don’t even want to go to mine. I mean, I don’t have an office. I don’t work. Oh forget it. I can’t wait to go to my husband’s Christmas Party. Really,...
Confessions From the Laundryroom
I use extra fabric softener in the wash. Because who doesn’t want to smell like a Mountain Spring? ..A great BIG Mountain Spring.
After yesterday’s humongus ‘face-plant fall’ into my kitchen cabinet. I am here to report that there is not a part of my body that doesn’t hurt..(except for that little space between my eyebrows)..oh nope, that hurts too! Let this be a little reminder, kiddies, stay on your feet. Don’t run in the house. And never, EVER, break a fall with your face. And now back to the...
Happy Birthday Jann!
Happy Birthday Jann. Oh, that smile. I love that smile! I think you are an incredible lady and I am proud to consider you my friend. Have the best day ever. You deserve it. Cake for everyone!!!
You Can Call Me Grace.
I left water running in the kitchen sink. When I remembered it, I had visions of water running all over the floor. So, I bee-lined for the kitchen, hit a slippery patch on the tile, and took a nose dive. It wasn’t pretty folks. …Did a face-plant straight into the side of the cabinet. Heard a loud crack. First thought: “not the teeth, God, not the teeth”. Nope, teeth are...
Bonus points…no hangover!!!!
Hey, I played flip cup with the football team. ..Yeah, I’m THAT mom. So what. And ya know what? I’m good at it!!
I know I’ve done a lot of “last football this”, and “last football that” postings. ..And you probably thought that was the end of it, right? Wrong. Tonight is the last Football Banquet ever. Yep. And there’s going to be dinner, and a raffle, and an auction, and, get this, ..unlimited BEER! Boy, things sure have changed! I think I’m going to like this LAST...
Happy Birthday hemirt5pt7! May I suggest you make that martini a mar-biggie! Enjoy the rest of the day and eat cake, baby!!
Happy Birthday to raiselm. A person with whom I feel I have a big connection with. By the way, have you found anybody with the keys to these handcuffs yet?
I’m not a big fan of the “woo”. (also called the “woot”) But let’s face it, everybody’s let out an occasional “woo” at one time or another. I’ve done it. Hell, I probably do it alot. When I get really fired up I’ve been known to let out a great big hearty “woo”. I believe there’s really no excuse for a poorly...
Seriously, I am the BEST damn wife..I dunno if this guy even NEEDS a Christmas present. (feeling a little full of myself today)
Yeah I Know..
So, you think this was bad? A whole strand of my Christmas lights went out.
It's A Wrap
Last Christmas I painted a couple of pictures for my daughter’s apartment. In the Spring, one of the paintings was damaged by her roommate. She was pretty bummed out. So, in the Summer I decided to paint her a surprise replacement. One small problem. I couldn’t find those damn acrylic paints ANYWHERE! I looked in all the obvious and not so obvious places. They were nowhere to be found....
Happy Birthday U's Twos!
Happy Birthday crustyjuggler72 and angryoldcoot. Sharing your birthday is very civil of you. I have to share my birthday with my mom, and I gotta tell ya..it sucks. Ohhhh mom this, ..and mom that. “WHAT ABOUT ME”??! Woah, ..sorry! Anyways, cake. Have your cake and eat it “two”. ..And one more thing, I never got my own cak—-
The first snowfall. Here is my take on it. “OMG, it snowed”. (Initial moment of excitement, like when you were a kid.) “The big flakes coming down sure are pretty”. And then 10 minutes later, you are over it. How many more days till Spring? And where did I put that Snuggie?! Gah, it’s snowing. Whose idea was it to live in a giant refrigerator?? Can somebody turn up...
