I’m a Failure
Published on Sunday, November 18, 2012 by This weekend I found myself at home rather than away.  You know what that means, don’t you?  Sigh.  It means I have no excuses.  Time to clean. Three hours in to sweeping, picking up, sorting and marveling at how wrecked things have gotten around me I came to a realization. Other than being a mother, for which I am truly blessed, I have not done anything in my...
Man Up, Moon!
Published on Saturday, November 17, 2012 by My new dog is all boy.  Well… most of the time he is all boy.  And when he isn’t, my 19-year-old son complains. “Moon!  Stop whining like a girl!  Mom!  He’s doing it again!  Moon, quit sounding like a girl!" I say let him be what he wants to be.  Moon is in touch with his feminine side. [caption id="attachment_7765" width="500"] And his Egypti...
I Do I Do I Do Believe In Ghosts…
Published on Friday, November 16, 2012 by Day 16 of NaBloPoMo is SCARRRRYYYYYYYYYY!  The topic is kind of scary too.  I am actually more interested in what YOUR answer is to this question! Would you buy your dream house if the price was right BUT you also were told it was inhabited by ghosts? How many ghost stories have you watched where you said out loud, “don’t go in there!”  You hear voices wh...
Needles in my Skin
Published on Thursday, November 15, 2012 by First, the doctor puts a needle in to your skin until it hits the nerve.  Then he sends electricity through the needle.  As the electricity is going through your nerve, he tells you to move your hand or arm.  With the needle still in it.  That was my morning.  An Electromyogram and Nerve Conduction Study, or EMG. But at the same time I was having this done, Mele...
The ONE Meal I NEVER Ruin!
Published on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 by Today I decided to go with the suggested topic for NaBloPoMo’s day 14. “Tell us about the best meal you ever cooked.” So this is the deal.  Before kids, I would spend hours preparing one meal.  I love cooking.  It’s therapeutic, don’t you think? And then came the kids.  And out went the fancy food.  There is just no time. However, once in a blue m...
Can A Fish Live With A Hook In It?
Published on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 by I promised I would tell you something “crazy weird” about the puppy drum I caught this weekend.  And that I could prove or disprove an old fisherman’s story.  Day 13 of NaBloPoMo gives me an opportunity to tell you a fish tale.  But a TRUE one!  Honest! How many of you have heard that a fish can live with a hook in it?  “Your fish swallowed the hook?  J...
A Keeper – Finally!
Published on Monday, November 12, 2012 by Months.  We have all tried for months to get that pie in the sky keeper puppy drum.  I cannot begin to tell you how hard it is to put a 17 ¾ inch drum back in the ocean.  It just isn’t the legal 18 inches.  So close.  OH SO CLOSE! But the North Carolina game wardens don’t play games.  If you have a fish under the legal limit, you will be fined.  Hundreds....
Sandy vs. Corolla’s Dunes
Published on Sunday, November 11, 2012 by I am so happy to say that overall, Corolla was spared a great deal when Sandy blew through.  All the houses near us are intact and there is minimal debris or standing water around the neighborhood.  But how did the dunes fare? Every year the locals kindly and gently find themselves talking to visitors about climbing the dunes.  It is illegal for a very good reason...
How did it get from Here to Here?
Published on Saturday, November 10, 2012 by Weekend Nablopomo – Woot! Sometimes I will realize that something completely normal to me might actually look a little strange to someone else.  For instance, last week I was at my desk when my eyes happened upon my open purse.  To me, nothing looked out of the ordinary.  But then I thought… “What would someone say if they walked by and saw that?” And so ...
If I Could Change One Thing
Published on Friday, November 9, 2012 by NaBloPoMo Day Friday, November 9, 2012 asks me, “If you could change one thing about your life right now, what would it be?” Oh my goodness what a loaded question.  And not truly answerable in a public forum.  At least not the mother of all answers. There are about three things I could list that need changing immediately.  Big things.  But let’s take it a ...
Training Monkies
Published on Thursday, November 8, 2012 by NaBloPoMo’s Day 8.  Eight days of posts and I’m still kicking.  WOOT! Today’s topic?  “If you could have any job (and instantly have the training and qualifications to do it), which job would you want?” A stay at home mom.  I didn’t even have to think. Indeed.  I was born too late.  I would be the happiest woman in the world staying home with my c...
Compliments and Comments
Published on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 by Another day of Nablopomo, or National Blog Posting Month finds me with the following writing prompt: “Talk about the last compliment you received.” I have two, actually.  The first was said to me just a few days ago.  I was driving my daughter to school and she was chitchatting about a conversation some children had at school.  The subject came up about paren...
