MUSIC FOR THE MIND

  The other day I almost got through an entire yoga class without crying…. Almost.  Then I heard the most unbelievable song and it moved me to tears. The melody was beautiful and the words were powerful enough that I haven’t been able to get them out of my mind.   As soon as class … Continued

That's Funny!

It’s not a shock that when I’m having a rough day I love me some good scotch.   It’s also not a coincidence that my pharmacist and I are on a first name basis.  BUT…. I still believe that laughter is the best medicine.  Nothing makes me feel better than a good belly laugh.  If … Continued

DAY WINE… IT'S HEAVEN ON EARTH

Typically I’m more of a hard liquor drinker but sometimes I need to mix it up, especially if I’m starting early and breaking out the booze during daylight hours. A few weeks ago I had plans to meet a girlfriend at the park with the kids.  Our texts back and forth covered the who, what, … Continued

U Came… UCONN… U Conquered!

I’ll cut to the chase and give you the punchline before I tell you the whole joke. Last night I won my March Madness pool when the Connecticut Huskies (32-8) beat the Kentucky Wildcats (29-11) with a final score of 60-54 in the 2014 NCAA Men’s National Championship Game. I.  FREAKIN’.  WON. Let me back … Continued

REMEMBRANCE MONDAY

Since Thursdays are referred to as TBT (Turn Back Time) and Fridays are known as Flashback Friday, why not call today Remembrance Monday? Memories are different for everyone and they come in all varieties.  Some are funny.  Some are awkward.  Others are so amazing that we try to recreate them over and over.  Occasionally when … Continued

You Tell 2 Friends & They Tell 2 Friends & So On & So On…

Remember that awesome commercial from the 70’s?  You know, the one about the shampoo.  “If you tell two friends about Faberge Organics shampoo with wheat germ oil and honey, then they’ll tell two friends, and so on and so on and so on.” In today’s world, I suppose social media is the equivalent of what … Continued

While Everyone Is Talking About Gwyneth…

It seems I can’t turn on the computer without reading another snarky albeit funny blog post about the Paltrow/Martin “conscious uncoupling” split that hit the news earlier this week. I won’t bore you with my own drawn out based-on-nothing-but-what-I-read-in-the-tabloids opinion on the matter, but I will say I think everyone should leave the chick alone!  Just … Continued

Elementary My Dear WatSON, Elementary!

Sometimes the obvious is right in front of our eyes but in order to see it clearly we need the assistance of others.  This was recently the case in my humble abode. Perhaps you remember me bitching in the past about my housekeeper.  The main problem is that the only thing she is good at … Continued
