Parenting Tip #29,019,543: You'll laugh at this one day - I'm laughing, already!

My inlaws are both turning 80 this year (relax, you guys STILL look good) so, I try to keep holidays and family get-togethers as simple as possible. Let's face it, I know that having kids running around at these sort of things can get a little gregarious and my mother-in-law just doesn't seem to be in much of a festive mood, anymore. Heck, she's got 5 kids, I'm surprised the woman is even able to complete a sentence, or find the strength to smile, without madly clutching at her breast and gasping for breath, then dribbling her sweet tea all...

Nearly Wordless Wednesdays: Birthday Wishes and Caviar Dreams!

Why, yes...it IS my birthday...but, I'm not here AND those aren't really my sneakers, either. They do, however, belong to my 12-year-old and they fit me (big feet, warm heart) and I sort of...you know...like them. So, I'm borrowing them (because, mine broke) and spending the entire day...ALONE...with my husband, Garth (not his real name) and nobody else, but him! Why? Because, he surprised me by taking a vacation day...TODAY...and we're spending the WHOLE day...TOGETHER...strolling along the beach, or sucking on freshly-shucked oysters topped with a tiny dollop of sour cream and perhaps a sprinkle of caviar, even. Doesn't matter,... Read more →

What Memorial Day Means To Me, Mostly.

Yep, it's Monday and my youngest (she's 6) is beside herself with worry, because our flag isn't up (yet) and she can NOT find anything red to wear! Anything that's CLEAN, anyway. You see, around these parts, Memorial Day is the "unofficial" start of barbecue season and, as of today, the beaches in New Jersey are now "officially" open! Which simply means that the lifeguards are on duty and it's high time we ALL get our beach tags, or better make sure that those season passes are visibly displayed on the dashboard of your car, thankyouverymuch. This weekend is also... Read more →

Meanwhile, Back at Kamp Kegel - Part I

Mom is recovering well from her surgery, thank goodness. So, now it's Dad's turn. Yes, wrestling with various health issues, they make a wonderful tag team! So, while I am at the hospital, taking part in subliminal chit chat and contributing to the high levels of tmi typically found in a fully-packed waiting room -- like, telling the blue-haired lady how I froze my ass at soccer tryouts last night, will have to go again tonight and how I woke up with a cold AND my period, this morning (you're welcome!) -- and then shaking down the vending machine for...

Flip This: I don't think we're in Jersey, anymore!

It's cold. Too cold to swim and too wet to play. Just, too danged cold. We haven't opened our pool, yet. Aaaaand, the squirrels ate through the hose on our gas grill AGAIN. So, our barbecue is broken and, as of this morning, there are only 18 days left until the kids start their summer vacation. We're just NOT feeling it, here in Jersey.
