So, You From Joisey?

Everyone has a story, here's yours!

I'm headed to Chicagoland to visit my sistuh-from-anuh-thuh-muh-thuh, Melisa (YAY!) so my husband dropped me at the airport a little early before going into work, today. Ticketing Agent: I'm sorry, but you can't check in any earlier than 4 hours before your departure. Fiiiiiiine, I was waaaaay earlier, but it's okay. Garth (NHRN): Maybe you can see if there is an earlier flight you can get on. The thing is, here's the thing: This particular flight has first come first served sort of seating and I had a pretty good boarding spot. Me: I don't mind, I'll just watch all... Read more →

Super-Nor'Easter-Winterstorm-Pain-in-the-Ass-Juno

Big doings here in Jersey. We've got our first major snow event (a.k.a. ROYAL PAIN IN THE ASS, if you're from Jersey) creeping up our coast. The kids had an early dismissal (they've already canceled school for tomorrow), my husband's work closed early and, well, now we wait. The snow started blowing sideways at lunchtime, but the blizzard doesn't really get here until sometime in the middle of the night, because who needs sleep, right?!? [raises hand] I have anxiety issues with snow -- especially major P.I.T.A. snow events and most especially driving in it, here in Jersey, home of... Read more →

Wordless Wednesday: Goodnight (and good job!) Sun

I love it, whenever I get the chance to introduce folks to a few of my favorite things, here in Jersey -- sharing them with the ones I love most...priceless. Sunset Beach -- Cape May, NJ Thanks so much for indulging this Jersey Girl and sharing in some spectacular seaside moments, Melisa. And good job, sun.

Sure, I like snow: just not so wet, cold and snowy.

As a family of Jersey girls and boys -- my husband, Garth (not his real name), the kids and I were ALL born and raised here -- we've grown accustomed to snow. It's the wintertime. We live on the East coast. It snows on the East coast, especially in wintertime, sometimes it even snows A LOT. Our oldest was not digging, helping me dig out of #Janus. Yesterday was no exception, although when the forecast called for "a major snow event" we immediately split into two camps: there is team "I hope we get dumped on!" and the other half... Read more →

Asshats have not yet completely taken over the world!

I shared an update on Facebook, praising a good Samaritan for stopping to check if I was alright after having negotiated some very icy roads, earlier this morning. I then added to the comments: Long-time blog readers will understand EXACTLY how very proud I am, of myself, for NOT losing my sh*t. I feel the need to expand on this morning's discussion (which is EXACTLY why I love Facebook, btw!), because I am extremely lucky to have been introduced to lots of brand new online friends over my eleventy years of blogging -- someone once called me the "grandmother of...
