About Me"Mom, you're on crack," my kids' favorite response to my valuable comments." I like to think of myself as the grandma humorist of the 21st Century. At best, I'm Erma Bombeck on crack.
I've been telling people what to do for years. And for the same number of years, they've been ignoring me. What better way to continue the tradition than to start blogging!
I hope you enjoy my funny... working its way up to hilarious... blog.
Please leave COMMENTS. I love to know you enjoy the posts. Some days your comments make my whole day. I'm of the age when that might be as good as it gets!

You already know how this is going to turn out. My husband had some loose tiles by his shower. After taking a Dremel to the grout and a scraper to the Wonder board (aren’t you impressed), I successfully pulled them … Continue reading
Yesterday I had carpet installed in two rooms. My daughter Coco says my house looks like a patchwork quilt. I chose to ignore her. Did I say judgmental things like that to my kids that they chose to ignore? I made … Continue reading
Sometimes it’s good to branch out. Maybe your friends don’t meet up to your expectations. Maybe they can’t help you through the task at hand. Whatever the reason, make new ones. I did. I’d been long time friends with the … Continue reading
