This is my life, plain and simple. It’s busy, it’s stressful, and it feels like the universe is against me at times. I would love to believe that God doesn’t give me more than I can handle, but I think the man is really confused with my ability. I pretend to the strong and tough, but inside I feel like a scared, lost kid. This growing up stuff is hard, even when you’ve been doing it for awhile.

I’m a woman, a wife, a mother, a friend (although not always a good one), a social worker, a runner, a listener, and a caregiver. I’m also a crazy control freak, type a personality, judgemental and gossipy. I want to think I am a nice, loving person, but somedays I just don’t have the strength to be the person I really should be and feel like I need a punching bag something to throw to express the emotions I’m stuffing deep inside. I have an extremely stressful job and a workaholic husband who has chronic health condition that is progressing at a steady pace. I have two great kids that I worry about constantly and probably nag at more than they deserve. Oh, and as if that wasn’t enough, I have my own auto immune condition that can wipe me out. Oh, and I think I’m funny. We’ll see how much and if you agree.

With all the above mentioned chaos, I run across some pretty hilarious incidents in my everyday life. Here’s my take on them; my remembering of how they occurred, and my one-sided, jaded opinion of them.


  1. You have been tagged! I know what you are thinking. “Tagged? Like one of those animals that get shot with a tranquilizer dart and get a metal band on their ear?”

    Errr … sort of. But also, kind of like those award thingys. It just something that people have been doing on WordPress. Feel free to join in … or if time is being … well, time … then just enjoy the read and the tag.

    You can read about it here by the way:

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog. I just saw you were friends with Irish Katie. It’s always a jolt to see her name pop up in unexpected places. That girl got around! Any friend of Katie’s is a friend of mine, so nice to meet you!

    • Oh Katie! I loved her posts and miss her so much! We used to trade comments and later on emails. She actually help me give my pet names to my family members for my posts! I didn’t find out she passed away until just right after Christmas. I find myself reading old posts and comments just to ‘hear her voice.’
      It was there I found you and your blog. And I so glad to have found another of Katie’s gals! Congrats on finishing Chemo and I’m putting you in my prayers that your recovery continues to soar! Kerry

      • She seems to have been a prolific emailer when she wasn’t writing, reading, or commenting on other people’s blogs! I miss those long emails and her comments on my blog. I never, ever once thought she wouldn’t make it what a shock that news was to receive. She was such a wonderful person and touched so many lives. It was so great to see her comments on your blog, almost as if she were still here with us.

  5. I bumped to your blog while searching for WP themes…(hope I didn’t hurt you…lol) and yours is featured! nice…
    and I think WP team did the right thing to put you on the frontline—you are funny and entertaining 😀

    so . . . Hi !
