The Fan

Mini Me has the hottest room in our house.  We have a classic split-level home, built in the 1960's.  The HVAC system is in the crawl space, situated right next to Mini Me's room.  It's fine in the spring and summer months, but once we fire the heat up, it's like hell down there. I …

Grocery Store

Day before yesterday, I actually made a trip to the grocery store. I hate going to the grocery store, so I normally order groceries and have them delivered. Now, I know how that sounds.  It sounds all fancy and ooh la la. It's really not.  In fact, when I order groceries, I tend to spend less …

La Mère du Psycho: Break on Through

I had visited the grave of Jim Morrison on my first trip to Paris, 23 years ago. I had no idea that this time, I would be jumping a barricade to visit him again....

Daveed

I decided to brave The Earl to see Daveed Diggs (original Thomas Jefferson/Marquis de Lafayette in the musical Hamilton) and his band Clipping....Little did I know that I would be one of the oldest people in attendance....and the fact that I came as a Hamilton fan would make me stick out like a sore thumb....

We had to be at Belmont the next morning at a specified time. I can no longer remember what that specified time was, but sure as hell, we were running late.

  Yesterday, my husband had our car.  We are about to buy another car. That, in and of itself,  is a long story that I will not bore you with.  Let's just leave it at: yesterday, I was at home without a car. Yes,  I could have called a friend to take me, yet again, …

Out of the Mouths of Babes: My First Time Speaking As A Writer/Blogger

It was a momentous day in my career as a writer, as that is what I call what I do, as opposed to being just a blogger.  Bloggers are writers!  We are writers who blog our writings. Anyway, back to my momentous day.... I was asked to come speak to The Baby's second grade class about creative writing and about writing my blog!  I was so excited. …

Karma is a Bitch and I Mean It…..

I used to work with someone who cried a lot and was always in pain and was finally diagnosed with something the rest of us dubbed as complete and total bullshit, but our co-worker who had it, called it "Fibromyalgia".   This was in the early 2000's.  Fibromyalgia was a new thing.  There were a few …
