The sad truth: Separate and not equal

Today the obituary for my husband’s dad was in the newspaper. The order of the kids goes from youngest to oldest. I must say, this was not a tactic that I ever thought would be used, but it was, and the grand kids were also listed youngest to oldest. This makes me so incredibly sad […]

Goofing off

Sometimes we goof off so much

  Sometimes we goof off so much that we forget where we parked the car. Normally we time our arrival to Miller Park so carefully that we end up in either the tiny parking lot or (our favorite) on the side of the road that wraps around the parking lot. This time, we were in […]


Yesterday we went for a 4 mile walk with the dog and took photos of each other taking photos. We stopped by the vet with Dogzilla to see if she had lost any weight since the summer. She didn’t. She now weighs 104.4 pounds, up 2 pounds from the summer. Then we went to the […]


Do I need it? I’ve been working on decluttering my home for years, but it’s gotten serious lately and I’m participating in 40 Bags in 40 Days. It’s not so much that I have to get rid of 40 bags, as much as it is going through everything that I own and deciding: Do I […]

The Faucet Fairy takes on the kitchen

A few years ago I wrote about how I changed the faucet in our bathroom, all by myself. This time the kitchen faucet NEEDED to be changed. It was original to the house, maybe 1996-ish, and there was a crack in the neck of the faucet that sprayed water at you whenever you turned it […]

The time I passed out on a plane

It’s the last day of January, I’ve officially made it through 1/12 of 2014. Here’s something I never in a million years thought would happen: Passing out on an airplane. Yep. THAT happened. I was flying home from California with a layover in Las Vegas. It was supposed to be a very short layover, like […]
