Sometimes you have to just suck it up… and this was one of those times. Midnight snacking in the kitchen I swore a shadow moved under the radiator. Nahh…I poo-pooed it away. To cast out all doubt the mysterious shadow was boldly sashaying across the front of my fireplace a day later. Yup, it was a &*^#% mouse. Those of you who follow UHB know the water bug incident. If not, go check that out. Continue reading
My friends and I are all women of a certain age who agree to be over the dating scene. We have married and divorced, date, raised our families, loved, lost and are in the ‘I’m Every Woman era of ME’ rebuilding phase of our lives. One girls night-in we got together for movie night and continued the dating conversation over snacks with the silly shenanigans of a RomCom – He’s Just Not that Into You. Continue reading

Spring colors abound with mild temperatures sending big clunky boots with the snow salt in the treads, back into closets. Time to show love to the open-toed, slingbacks and sandals as they emerge from their winter hibernation and take center stage.

I lost an hour today. Checked my purse, the closet, my junk drawer the computer bag….yep it’s gone. This is nothing new. I can’t tell you how it happens, it just does.

Today there was a legitimate reason, the clocks were all moved ahead because of Daylight Savings Time. Continue reading

Yup, you have reached your limit. Continue reading
