MIA, part two.

I started off my day the way I always do. I took the kids to school. Then I stopped by my doctor to get a referral. And now I’m here at the ER waiting room. I’m fine, but my iron levels are low enough, he wanted me to come here for a blood transfusion. I’ll

Great Expectations.

Reviews. They’re both a nuisance and important. Especially for a self-published author who are trying to earn a living by selling ebooks. Or if you’re Anne Rice, occasionally you vent at Amazon reviewers who disliked your book. Why am I sharing this? An author posted a blog with guidelines about how to post reviews on

MIA

So I forgot to write a post for today ahead of time. Today we went to Disneyland with my parents and had a great time. Yesterday, TheBoy and I went to see The Muppets- and yes, we had a great time. If you were a fan of the Muppets as a kid, I urge you

Yawn.

I know that my kids wear me out, but I’ve discovered that my brother in law makes me tired, too. The youngest brother in law is 23, and he and his girlfriend go out all the time. Out late at night, up relatively early in the morning. They went shopping on Black Friday at midnight

Lazy Friday

After watching countless television ads, my oldest asked us about Black Friday. So he announced it to everyone as though it were a holiday. We made sure he understood that we weren’t shopping. That for us, Friday is about relaxing. But still, “It’s Black Friday! Black Friday!” Which makes me think of the stupid Kohl’s

My family was never big on Thanksgiving. The highlight of the meal was never the turkey, but always on the side dishes and desserts. During

The Turkey (I’m following the instructions on the bird and I’m going to coat the bird in butter when I cook it, baste it regularly and cover

Allergies vs Thanksgiving

As you all should know by now, the Little Kidlet has a slew of allergies and I have a gluten issue. On a normal day, this means that LK and I have a lot of separate meals from the rest of the family. But how does it affect holidays? Well, in the past, I’d roast

Forgetfulness.

As in, it’s almost 8pm and I completely forgot about writing a blog post today. It was a rough weekend. It’s been the first weekend where the boys had no chance to go outside. It was too cold on Saturday and rained on Sunday. So by the end, I had two whiny little boys. Every

I had a dream…

..and I dreamed it for you, June. And if it wasn’t for me, then where would you be, Miss Gypsy Rose Lee- Just kidding. I just really love Gypsy. With all this talk about Natalie Wood’s death, it has me thinking about some of her more memorable roles. While for West Side Story was all
