Apparently, soothing your little brother, from the heartbreak of divorce, involves consuming large amounts of alcohol. Currently taking one for the team. (Seriously guys, I’m the *best* big sister!)
He's My Little Brother
He’s my little brother. He was only 6 when my dad died, so I had to help take care of him even though I was pretty young too. He was always a good guy. Never a problem. A very special kid. Extremely handsome, like my dad. Very kind and caring. He keeps it all inside. Never says a bad word about anyone. He thinks it’s best that way. He loves his family, his kids, and his wife. Only...
Rev It Up!
Our neighbors have a big, black, truck. A very loud big, black, truck. When they start it up, it pierces the morning silence like a gong. It is even louder when it’s cold out. This morning it’s really, really, cold. Vrooom. Vrooom. Welcome to my morning… so this is what it looks like! Frankly, I’m unimpressed. I’d like to go back to bed now, please.
Hey, Bring Me A Beer!
Watching Red Wings Hockey, switching between channels to the UCONN/Arizona basketball game, while listening to a College Hockey Championship game online. …I’m a sports guy’s dream!
2006? I'll give you 2006!
2006? There are no pictures of me in 2006. I’m the one who takes the pictures here. People don’t take pictures of me! There are no pictures of me, until I figured out how to take pictures of myself. Clearly that wasn’t until 2007. Or was it 08? I dunno, maybe later. Anyways, you know what I look like. Imagine it 5 years younger and… Bingo, 2006!
Yesterday I changed the toilet paper roll. Today I ran the dishwasher. Yah, homemaking is hard. (I think I’m going to go lay down)
Sitting Back Enjoying The View~
Yes, it’s true. I haven’t had much to say lately. I’ve just been sitting back enjoying the view. (that’s what Barbara Walter’s says.) Anyways, I’ve been walking two miles everyday, with my neighbor, and ya know what? Exercise works! My muffin top is now just a slightly puffy dinner roll. Also, down three pounds. (yay) And that is all for now. So, carry on. Good...
I Waited 20 Years For This? Not Really.
So here’s the thing about the Super moon. To get the full effects, you had to see it right when it was rising… or right when it was setting. Now, since I don’t live by the ocean, on a mountain top, or any place where there’s not an unobstructed view, the chances of me seeing the Super moon, when it was REALLY, really, super are pretty close to none. But, I did get a pic of...
Two words: Can’t. Sleep. Two more words: Hang. Over. Accompanying sound: *ughhhh*
Yeah, so I drank all the Corona Lights. Sue me.
What Ever Happened To Tila Tequila?
Going out with the girls tonight. I’m a little excited, except for one thing. Stupid green!! I hate green. I don’t have ANYTHING green. I look terrible in green. So, how about teal? Will teal do? I can do teal. I look good in teal. It matches my eyes. I will accessorize with green. Okay? Will that save me from being pinched. (which, by the way, I think is a very rude custom) Happy St....
This Is A Test...Only A Test
Going outside, because you never know how long 56 degrees is going to last here.
Truthful Tuesday~Fight Edition
I’ve never been in a real ‘knock down drag out’ fight, but when I was a young teenager, I kinda got pushed to my breaking point. I can’t remember exactly what caused the problem, but there was some kind of verbal altercation between one of my siblings and the neighbor girl. Her way of attempting to win the fight, was to shout out, in a snotty little rant, “and...
Things You'd Probly Wanna Know~
~I saw 2 robins yesterday. They’re still ugly. (In case you were wondering.) ~We don’t have to dye our river green, for St. Patrick’s Day, like Chicago does. Ours is “naturally green”. They call it algae and pollution. Really, come swimming any time! ~ I don’t have to change the clock, in my car, to Daylight Saving Time. It’s been wrong the whole time....
Leaving Your Kids Is (Tonya) Hard (-ing)
We’re home from Chicago! I miss my girl already. It’s hard to leave your kids. And, how come, every time I ride the train, the village idiot sits behind me?? In the words of Nancy Carrigan: “Why? Whyyy?”
Twas a night of dysfunctional family fun. The “in laws” are seriously people you want to party with. Meaning: A lot of wine was consumed. And we’re on the Concierge Floor of a fancy hotel, in Chicago. Are you ready for this? I think not, Concierge people. I think not.
So yeah, Let’s talk about Paczki’s. Although I’m Polish, and am pleased as punch that everyone celebrates the paczki today, they’re not that big a deal. My dad used to buy them for us all the time, when we were kids. Like weekly. You can pretty much get them at any bakery. They’re called jelly doughnuts, y’all, JELLY DOUGHNUTS! (or bismarcks in some circles) ...
You Say Goodbye And I Say Hello...
Spring Break is over. After being home a week, The Boy said GOODBYE and went back to school yesterday. Then, HELLO, my Oldest Boy came home, on Saturday, to go skiing with his dad. He said GOODBYE and left for his place today. The house is empty again. But no need to fret, cause HELLO, I’m going to Chicago to see The Girl tomorrow. You say goodbye and I say hello…hello, hello,
