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!

This morning after working a long week including over thirty hours overtime, I sat in front of the computer again. I needed a break, so I Googled the local reduced-price movie house and glanced at the show times. The Ides of … Continue reading
You probably remember from older posts that I like organization. Couponman says he likes it when I, for example, organize his closets so his shirts are sorted by long sleeve shirts and short sleeve, then by color. But it never lasts … Continue reading
Yesterday I ventured out past home with my husband. It was our wedding anniversary. The only rule about the weekend was that I did not want to be involved in the planning. I know that may sound scary to many women, but … Continue reading
