A Stabbing Pain in the Neck January 17, 2019

There comes a time in any decades-long marriage, no matter how solid, loving, and in-for-the-long haul when you want to stab your beloved in the eye with a fork.  This is why all the women I know have at least one girlfriend in whom she can confide when she’s having one of those murderous days.…

New Year Same Me January 9, 2019

With the new year comes a whole slew of social media posts, blogs, and articles titled a variation on “New Year, New You.”  These are, I suppose, intended to be helpful and hopeful, and every time I see one I want to put my fist through the computer screen.  I hate them with an unbridled…

Stay-Away-Muffs December 20, 2018

Considering the fact that I listen and talk for a living, I sure do get tired of listening and talking. By the end of the week, I reach my capacity. My hard drive gets full. I need to process the information in my database and file it into long term storage before I can take…

Ode to Flannel Sheets November 8, 2018

Ode to Flannel Sheets “Beauty is truth, truth beauty,” And beauty occureth not without a good night’s sleep. Therefore without sleep, there is no truth, Only a jumble of undercaffeinated syllables.   Percale will do, maybe even soothe on hot summer nights.

My Superpower October 12, 2018

“If you could have any superpower, what would it be?” Of course, I’m not going to get a superpower any time soon, but it’s an interesting question to contemplate.  My first thought when presented with this question was that of all the superpowers held by all the superheroes I’ve witnessed, the thing I’d like the…

Cleanliness is Next to Impossible September 29, 2018

The biggest problem with cleaning your house beyond a swipe with a paper towel is that you realize the level of filth you’ve been living in. There was a stain on my carpet.  The stain was annoying me because it was large enough to be seen from Mars.  I found some carpet cleaner and an…

Blog Tour — Are You Still Kidding Me? September 21, 2018

One of the best parts about being a part of the Erma Nation, that is, being a part of the fabulous group of women (and the handful of brave, brave men) that descend upon Dayton, Ohio every two years is having the opportunity to meet fantastically talented, funny women who write books.  My friend Stacey…
