Have You Heard Of Shakey Face?

While out to eat with some of my favorite humor bloggers, Kim Bongiorno shared a gem with us. Her friend, Vanessa shared it with her and she shared it with us. Pay it forward, right? It’s called “Shakey Face.” Here is my video tutorial on Shakey Face.   This is why I love these women […]

Big Haiti Love

Our team arrived in Haiti on Saturday.  The first thing I learned was the “language of honking.” As we traveled from Port Au Prince to Jacmel, honking communicated everything from “Watch out” to “I’m coming through” to “Hello!”  Not that I was doing any communicating. In Port Au Prince, I was too overwhelmed to say […]

Because it isn’t socially acceptable to blame my parents for schizophrenia. I rather enjoyed blaming them…those were good […]

Goodbye, Peter Rabbit

Saying “Goodbye, Nursery” When I was pregnant with my firstborn, my mister and I painted what would become the nursery. I clearly remember saying to him “It is going to be so weird having another person in the house with us.”  This makes me chuckle because we then had four babies in five years. I […]

That Time I Stepped Into My Computer Screen

There were book signings… “I would love to sign your book…as soon as I shovel this into my face.” There were the roommates… I roomed and color coordinated with Kelley from Kelley’s Break Room and Jen from People I Want To Punch In The Throat.  (Jen was also our fearless leader in I Just Want […]
