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 »

“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 »

Today’s Dilemma – Balls or Birds?

Yep, I’m one of THOSE. A “coupon clipper”. And this morning I am devoting a tiny chunk of time to “cutting money out of circulars”, with the help of, of course, my two littlest. My three year old is learning how to read and is “delighting” me with every word she reads – “Are you … Continue reading »

Ahhh…Friday. Tonight I get to slip into a silky, royal blue silk dress and sky-high pumps and enjoy myself at a local artist’s reception here in Saratoga.

A Public Apology to My Mom, and Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award

I am not proud about what I am about to confess to you. Worst of all, I know I will disappoint my mother the most. I committed a HUGE sin in Polish tradition. I used instant potatoes in my pierogie. It has been a  bit incredibly difficult to sit down and write a proper post these last few weeks. The weather … Continue reading »

Zapiekanki, Dzelten Maize and Part 3 of My Versatile Blogger Nominations!!

My favorite food in Poland (OK, one of my favorite foods in Poland) is zapiekanki, and from sessions at nometne as a child – dzelten maize. The zapiekanki that conjur up the best memories for me were (probably still are) sold by outside vendors near the bus and train stations in Rzeszow. These  are similar to grilled French bread pizzas topped with … Continue reading »
