My house has been overrun by tomatoes. I swear to you, they are everywhere. They are in the fridge. They are on the counter. They are in the freezer. It’s like a scene from that TV show “Hoarders” only instead of newspapers and clothes stacked up everywhere, we have tomatoes. Frankly, it’s terrifying. And the [...]

So today I woke up and I was so happy. First, the alarm barely went off next to my head. Next it was Friday. Yay! I turned to Harry, snuggled in and said, “Ooh, it’s Friday. Aren’t you glad the week is almost over?”
And there was a dead silence, then Harry said, “It’s Wednesday.”

For one thing, I’d walk around [...]

Maybe it’s just me, but I realized recently that my family exercise plan wasn’t working. It was a gorgeous day in June and I recklessly decided to set my shorts free from their prison in the bottom drawer of my dresser. I put them on. And they seemed a bit tight. You know, not like [...]

Using the internet for medical advice

Recently, Junior caught mono. At first, I didn’t know what it was that he had. I figured it might be a little virus or something.

Please excuse the repeat. However, Junior has just been diagnosed with mono which means I have spent the last week or so being his royal majesty’s very grumbly servant. Just to let everyone know: he is NOT a good patient. Also? I’m a terrible nurse.
Many readers know that I have dreamt of Olympic gold. But [...]
