Cheers and Jeers

Cheers… to the so-cute-they-induce-squealing black lab puppies that I visited tonight.  My mom knows a fellow teacher who raises them, and she was looking for people to come by and play with the puppies before they’re sold, in order to help socialize the pups.  Hmmm… snuggle with adorable puppies and not have to clean up […]

Ring Bearers and Breakables…?

I’ve never really dug the whole ring-bearer-pillow bit.  If the pillow is really lacy and girly, what the devil do you do with it after the wedding?  NavyGuy would die before he’d let me put the pillow on our bed, and honestly, the last thing we need is another piece of bedding stashed somewhere (how […]

Zoo Thanks

A quick card to share just cuz it makes me smile. I babysit for an (almost) 3 year old little boy who is maybe the politest kid I’ve ever met.  He calls me Miss Mugs, says please and thank you religiously, and shares his toys.  Willingly.  Anyway, he’s a blast, and I babysat for his […]

More Letters…

So the good news is that a) I’m back in Wisconsin, b) all of my luggage arrived with me, and c) it was a completely un-eventful day.  No one annoyed me, the TSA people and I got along amazing well – I didn’t even have to sit next to any talkers on the plane! The […]

Premptive Strikes

My inner B@#$% tends to come out when I travel by air… so clearing the air ahead of time may be the most efficient route to go… Dear Random Driver on I-5, I deeply apologize for NavyGuy’s behavior this morning. He doesn’t do well before seven a.m., and he does particularly poorly in cars at […]
