When people ask you that question, they are just ignorant, but they think they are being helpful. Another one of my favorites is, "Cheer up!" To which your sardonic response might be, "Oh! What a great idea. I'll get right on that." (While you are thinking what a Putz that person is, right?) And then there's the "feelers." The ones who say, "Have a good cry and get it out of your system!"

Christmas Village!



I never miss Christmas Village at the Fairgrounds. Granted, it's a lot of the same stuff year after year. But I get to see my friend Wendy! It's our annual Girls Day Out!

Yes, we try to limit what we spend, but we always but Mama Lee's Hot Chocotate and something yummy like Kettle Corn!

Come join us!

Hi Kimkat,  
I went to a drumming circle yesterday and it was good to get drumming again.

Whether you are having an Oscar party or it's just a party for one snuggled up in your bed with your favorite jammies, it's fun to play along with "Prop Bets." If you don't know, Prop Bets are like fun side bets about the Oscars that don't involve much about who wins. For example, "Will Ellen Degeneres wear a dress at any point in the show?" You pick YES or NO.

    Not Your Average Mom!

I do not know this woman, but I feel like I do.

She has a Mom Blog, and it's a good'n.

I have to think she would be delighted to have me pass it along.

I hope she wouldn't mind.

Just in case, pretend you don't know where you got it.

Just remember that what is written there are HER thoughts, not necessarily MINE.

Hey Mama! I saw this on Yahoo and thought it was pretty brilliant, so I wanted to pass it along!

Not One for New Year's Resolutions? Yeah. Me either.

Just one more thing at which I could fail miserably. No, I'm not being negative. I just think the whole idea is unrealistic. Why do we have to start something New (or END something Old) on January 1. There are 364 other perfectly good days when we may feel far more motivated. And if you do slip a bit, guess what? You can start again tomorrow.

Some "Mom" terms drive me nuts ... and some really tick me off. 


Mom jeans. This is a negative term to describe jeans that look awful.  The jeans that are ill-fitting. Jeans that have elastic waistbands. Moms like all kinds of jeans.

This might be a little heavy, or even strange, but do you ever feel like you are "channelling" someone?

Lately I have been painting. Now, keep in mind, I have never picked up a brush until a few months ago. But now, I paint whenever I get a free hour or so.

Get your mind out of the gutter!

Dolly is going to expand Dollywood by ... (wait for it)... $300 MILLION DOLLARS!

And that will include a brand new resort hotel. You can read all about it here.

Thanks to Anna Marie for sharing with with me! Anyone who has ever had a dog would love it!

You know, Anna Marie and Clint are always poking fun at me about my culinary skills or lack thereof. But one thing I love to make is PASTA SALAD.

Now do not tell me that Pasta Salad is not considered cooking. If you are in the kitchen heating or chopping or measuring anything, you are cooking! That's MY rule and I'm sticking with it!

The first thing I noticed about Margaret was her hair. Falling well past the middle of her back, it was pearl-like and shining in a loose ponytail that swished gently across the back of her bright pink t-shirt. As I drove past her walking along the side of Shackle Island road, I could not help but notice the brisk strides she was taking in her trim white cropped pants while she hauled a stuffed grocery bag almost half the size of her delicate frame.

I can't help it. I just LOVE Doogie!

Neil Patrick Harris is being the go-to guy when it comes to hosting awards shows. Rumor has it that he will host the next Emmy Awards. If it's anything like the Tony Awards last night, we are in for a treat!

See the Tony Awards opening here.

2 Years ago today, Osama Bin Laden was killed and his body was dumped in the ocean. 3 Years ago, the thousand Year flood hit Middle Tennessee. and 80 years ago today, the Lochness Monster was spotted in Scotland. It's a bad day for water.

This flea and tick season is the worst. And the mosquitos are no picnic either!

Could it be? Mom was wrong all this time?

I new study shows that women are better off going au natural instead of wearing a bra. What do you think? Read the article here.



Braless is Best? Study Says Bras Make Breasts Saggier

Everyone who has every been to a flea market or garage sale dreams about finding something that turns out to be a treasure, right?

Well, this woman buys a $7 painting at a flea market. She finds out soon after that it is an original Renoir! Great news right? Well not quite! It was reported stolen by a museum in Baltimore 60 years ago and they want it back! But wait, there's more! An insurance company says they paid off on the loss years ago and the painting now belongs to them! So a federal judge is trying to figure it all out!

Mom told me to marry a man who is good with his hands. (OK,  get your mind out of the gutter.)

Thankfully, I did.

I bought some new Patio Furniture this week because our 10 year old table and chairs were kaput! Well, the "Easy to Assemble" claim was a big fat lie! They included some stinky little allen wrench to put it together. Seriously? 7 pieces of furniture? Have they lost their minds? That would take a month!

Fortunately, I MARRIED an Alan wrench!
