When the daily Post Prompt hit my Inbox this morning it made me LAUGH!! The word is: embarrassing, which is ironically a word that probably half of my acquaintances would use to describe me. In “honor” of that, I thought I would regale all of you with one of the more embarrassing moments that I had at work. Continue Reading
I have had this blog drafted up for 2 days now, and just haven’t had the time to finish so YES, after all this work I AM going to combine TWO Daily Posts prompts into one blog.
Anyone who remotely knows me needs to realized one VERY vital fact: I have never EVER, nor will I EVER BE a morning person. Look, I dislike them so much that I even put it in my sarcasm font: morning people. See. The only exception to that rule is that if I stay up without going to sleep at ALL then yes, I WILL be a morning person. Otherwise, if I have hit the bed, and need to arise from slumber ANY time before 9 am…people may (and have) die. Continue Reading
April 15th is known as “Tax Day” here in the U.S. This year, since the 15th fell on a holiday, procrastinators got an extra weekend. For those of my followers who reside “across the pond” April 15 is the date that everyone has to reconcile their income taxes paid for the year. Best case scenario, people paid the government too much money during the year and they get a “refund” of the overpaid taxes. Worst case scenario, you didn’t pay enough and you have to pay back the extra owed. Most of us count on the “refund” and hope to treat ourselves to a little vacation, or a new computer, etc. For those of you who are “salty” at getting no refund, this will make you feel better as well. I thought I would “celebrate” by compiling a list of some of the WORST ways to spend your income tax refund. Sadly, most of these have afflicted our family: Continue Reading
It seems that The Daily Post has a knack for kicking me in the inspirational feels. At first when I saw that the word of the day was ‘breath’, I started singing the stalker anthem: “Every Breath You Take”, by The Police (Sting), but I promise I won’t be analyzing that song. These blogs were supposed to be all funny, but today life got me in the feels…but I’ll do my best to keep it light. I was struggling at figuring what to blog, and then as usual it hit right in the middle of disaster. Continue Reading
Despite the fact that it is supposedly “Springtime”, the stomach flu is still making it’s rounds. As referenced in yesterdays blog, my baby girl is down with it currently, and now the hubs is as well. I’m constantly hearing adults with no children whining about how they are “so sick with the flu”, and my uber-competitive self is LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY at them! Sure, maybe it’s just because I’m 75% crazy (TRUE story), but it also may be because every time I hear about the flu, I am reminded of the “incident” a few years ago that happened in our house. I refer to as, the DEMON FLU FROM Hell!! It started with my son Jonah, in that horrible night referenced in yesterdays blog Boys vs. Girls: Being Sick with the Flu (if you haven’t read it yet, do so now…I’ll wait. All caught up now? OK, let’s proceed). But that was JUST the beginning. Continue Reading
I was awakened by my little 5 year old at 6:30 am by a persistent “Mom. Mom. Mommy.” When the darling hubs (who KNOWS I am USELESS in the morning) tried to help her, she just kept “mom”-ing and we knew something was up.
