Why I Sleep with Herks…

I did something the nuns who taught me would definitely NOT approve of me doing. OK, to be honest, there’s quite a few things the nuns would not approve of, however, I am referring to one thing in particular at the moment. When I was young, I wanted to be a nun. I think the … Continue reading »

Psst? Got a Sec?

Please say a quick prayer that Saint Padre Pio look after a very, very dear friend of mine today who desperately needs his help and guidance dealing with an abusive domestic issue.  She needs a miracle. She needs him to please give her a sign that she is doing the right thing. (Actually, it wouldn’t hurt … Continue reading »

“Mommy, You’re 60 Pounds and 8 Minutes!”

Sometimes too much information, to the wrong person, at the wrong time – can be a bit, well, comical – depending on how much ibuprofen you have on hand. My youngest will be turning 4 soon. Of course in her mind she’s 14, and on an intellectual level with my oldest. So when Daughter #2, … Continue reading »

I’ve Got 8 Bottles of Frisky-Hued Nail Polish, So What the Heck Am I Still Doing in NY?

I’ve been dragging my feet lately regarding our move to either the Cape or Myrtle Beach. And the reason is the weather. Putting aside the slight drought, it’s been gorgeous just about every single day. Closing your eyes and sipping a cool drink is a lot easier than poring over thousands of houses. Dreaming of … Continue reading »

Thinking Naughty and Nice in June…

Pssst…. I started doing it again. I started doing it on vacation. I really didn’t think I would start doing it so soon, but apparently, I am weak… and it felt so good. That surge of satisfaction knowing I was going to make someone very, very happy ribboned itself around my body and hugged me with the sensation one gets … Continue reading »

Why is There Alpaca Fur on the Floor in my Children’s Room?

I am a LOVER of surprises… What I am NOT a lover of, is coming home and discovering a white floor covering in my 6 and 8 year old daughters bedroom. Especially when this white floor covering is actually an eight foot by five foot, white alpaca fur rug. Did I mention it’s white? “Daddy … Continue reading »

All I Want for Mother’s Day is to be Naked in Peace.

I am NOT very pleased with the person who taught my youngest to jimmy locked doors. I am particularly perturbed at that person when I’m in the shower and I never hear the door open – just the whoosh of my pink-on-pink shower curtain before the icy breeze grabs at my exposed body parts (for some … Continue reading »

“Chopped Testicles, Mommy? Are You Delighted?”

First of all – Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to anyone who has a child in their life since we are all always teaching them lessons through our words and our actions. I had the wonderful luxury of staying in my big, puffy bed and snuggling all weekend 😉 . OK, that translates into – I was (still am) annoyingly … Continue reading »

Oh Dear God, Don’t Sit On the Pineapple!!

You are about to be the first to find out. I’m dumping Bob. He’s just not hot anymore. I admit that I have been rough on him lately – using him around the clock, over and over. I suppose I had to expect him to just get tired and stop responding the way I need … Continue reading »
