Calm in the Blackberry Storm
Published on Tuesday, August 18, 2009 by The art of patience.  I may not be a master, but I'm pretty darned close.  That is what many say.  You are so PATIENT.  Perhaps I'm too much of a pacifist.  When I see someone in public yelling at a sales clerk or screaming at their kid it is almost painful to me.  I would much rather keep quiet then stir up trouble.  For many, this would be considered a fault....
Embarrassing Story Number 8,205 (And Counting)
Published on Monday, August 3, 2009 by Summer in our area usually equates to a good afternoon thunderstorm at least once a week.  Last week I was running some tickets with one of my co-workers when a huge thunder and lightening storm descended upon us.  Fortunately we were nice and dry, with all of our jobs residing in one location in a connecting building. When it was time to go back to our desks, ...
I Must Be Saved!
Published on Wednesday, July 15, 2009 by My poor, poor children.  With the luck of the draw, they are destined to be embarrassed by their mother at every turn.  I thank the Lord that they did not inherit my lack of skill and grace.  I have a surfer, a skimboarder and a gymnast - all things I could never had done at their age.  Alas, this is their life as pictured below.  A weekly occurrence - either ...
My Van is in a WHAT?
Published on Wednesday, April 15, 2009 by As you may know, we were in the Outer Banks during part of Easter Break.  During our stay I proved that even away from home, I naturally gravitate towards embarrassing situations.  We had cloudy skies for most of our stay, which in my house equates to bored children.  Which equates to fights.  Which equates to me MAKING them get out of the house.   Off we ...
Hissssssss!
Published on Thursday, December 11, 2008 by Yesterday I went to Curves and plunked my gym bag down on the bathroom floor – ready to change into my workout clothes.  As I was closing the door I heard a strange hissing sound.  Hisssssssssssssssss….!  Hmmm, what is THAT sound?   I stood for a second, trying to pinpoint the unusual sound.  Hisssssssssss…!!!   And then it hit me.  My young son had ...
Pardon me, Ma’am…
Published on Monday, September 29, 2008 by Me and my big mouth.  This is my latest and one of my greatest.  Picture me in an elevator full of women, with a young man standing in the corner.  He said to everyone in the elevator, “Excuse me, have any of you ladies caught a buzz?”  There was TOTAL silence.  No one spoke!  So I finally said as clear as a bell, “Ex-CUSE ME!?!?” (with a bit of attitude...
What is this Strange Creature??
Published on Saturday, July 19, 2008 by   While in Corolla, NC, we saw an animal that was very unusual.  We were five houses from the beach, with open space behind us.  In this open space we often see deer, fox and feral cats.  There are also rabbits and snakes.  But we have NO idea what this animal was!   When we first saw it, we thought it was a red fox.  It had short legs, and my moth...
Lookin’ Good for the Ex-Boyfriend!
Published on Wednesday, June 11, 2008 by  On my way to work, I stopped in at a "quickie mart" to grab a cup of coffee.  As I turned the corner, I nearly ran into an OLD BOYFRIEND.  I could not believe it.  Was my hair straight?  How did I look? I talked to him for a good five minutes.  Certain I had impressed him, I got back in my car and started to pull out.  It was when I glanced back through my ...
Don’t Look At My Butt!
Published on Sunday, May 4, 2008 by We all like to think we look fabulous, don't we?  This week I didn't necessarily feel fabulous, but I thought I was dressed neatly - at the minimum. Walking down the hall at work, two ladies behind me said, "Ummm, we hate to tell you this... but you have something on your butt."  Now, it didn't end with a quick brush of the pants to remove an offending piece of lint...
Barf on Board!
Published on Friday, February 22, 2008 by Imagine a trip to the Virgin Islands at only 13 years old.  The sun, the sand, the opportunity to try a Pina Colada… it was a dream come true! Sure enough, when I was in seventh grade my parents took my older brother and me to St. Croix for a family vacation.  There I indeed got to try my first Pina Colada while munching on fried conch as I listened to isla...
You can dress me up….
Published on Wednesday, January 23, 2008 by ..but you can’t take me anywhere!  I was at our annual church Winter Festival, waiting patiently in the buffet line for what looked like absolutely delicious food.  The line split into two so folks could serve themselves from both sides of the tables.  The way the lines were moving, a gentleman across from me seemed to always be at the same station I was througho...
Brown Nosing – 7-11 Coffee Style!
Published on Wednesday, January 2, 2008 by I admit it – I love 7-11 dark mountain roast coffee with a passion. Every day after lunch I pick up a refill cup and drink it at my desk. A few weeks ago I purchased a new 7-11 coffee mug – a really cool one with a wide base and top. After showing it off to a few fellow coffee lovers, I finished up my coffee and ran all around my workplace fixing pc’s and sof...
