Like gumbo, but not literally.

So many things. If you are bored, you have come to the right place! • If you would like to see my newest vlog (in which I share a story about a fairly AWFUL experience with a BUG)… I’m gonna have to beg you to click right on this cute little link here… You’ll still […]

Here's the deal…

I should probably just go ahead and create a new JOtS newsletter, but not tonight. NO. MAMA TIRED. Which reminds me, have you signed up for my newsletter? I send it monthly. Like a woman’s cycle. Except it’s never been delivered on a monthly basis. Actually my newsletter arrives in one’s inbox with as much […]

No Foolin'!

I have an announcement to make!!! * * * * * * * * * APRIL FOOLS!!! Ha! I got cha! In other happenings… these are the brighter happenings of the last week or so. No foolin’! I did not get any pictures of my puffy eyes from a pretty good cry the other day, […]

Monday Mingle: My favorite song, other answers and a burp.

That’s my new flower pin. It’s almost as big as my head. It has nothing to do with this post. I just wanted to show you. ~~~~~~~~ A new video blog! Thank you to Eighty MPH Mom for having questions so I would have something to vlog about! I’ve been trying to jump in on […]

Who's A Firework?

I started blogging in 2004. That almost makes me a “grandmother” in this family of blogging. A really YOUNG granny *ahemhem* However, I have wandered… Business? Pleasure? Hobby? Addiction? There are women (OK, me too, sheesh!) who have been blogging just a year or two, and I feel sheepish. The fruit of my nearly 7 […]

Homophones: Your Doin' It Wrong

Did you catch that? Huh? Did ya? How about this one: Found this on a friend’s Facebook wall. She’s an English teacher. She’s so sexy. Eye I am not going to claim I am flawless when it comes two too to appropriately using words that sound the same (but are spelled differently/have different meanings)… But […]

Survey Much?

Dear friends, If you have a moment(s), I would really appreciate the feedback, yo. Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey, the world’s leading questionnaire tool. And as a thank you, here is a piping hot cup of coffee I made just for you. O.K. I made it for me, but when I drank it, […]

Favorite Things Friday: Here, There and Everywhere!

It’s been a bit busy lately… I recently had someone ask, “So. What’re you up to today?” My mind raced… “Do I say I have 2 posts due, a class to prepare to teach, a video to finish editing… or just mention I’ll be helping out in one of the kids’ classrooms…” I tend to […]

Go Ahead… Delurk or Somethin'

So. I heard it through the grapevine (via Greeblemonkey via Rude Cactus) that today is Delurking Day. Now. I know people are coming by. And I have a handful of long-suffering commenters who put their 2 cents in {big squeeze}… But MOST people do not. To be honest, I hardly ever leave comments. Because my […]

Make We Laugh Monday: Handerpants

I went Christmas shopping recently. On account of the fact that Christmas is EMINENT. *insert code blue here* *and also wild, desperate eyes* *No… WILDER* *WIL. DER.* I went into a shop that my accessory-adoring heart has developed deep feelings for. In that shop I find hats and scarves and earrings and funny cards and […]
