Personal First Aid Kit (AKA the return of the cowboy hat).

Monday, November 28, 2011


Once upon a time I yammered about the importance of first aid kits. I was kindasorta a new mom and as a result BLANKETED the domicile (and car) with tiny kits crammed with ‘saving’ devices. Bandages. Medicine. Tweezers. Ointments. Ice pack thingies. Heat packs. Surgical tape. You name the medical crap & I had it [...]

Where blog posts wither & die (part two).**

Sunday, November 13, 2011


Yesterday I brought the Tornado to see Shrek the Musical. Again. (she requested the harry potter specs. she knows not who h.p. is.) You cant see but Im wearing these shoes. again. So glad I listened to all of you (especially Charlotte) and didnt return them. I love. I feel fancy. I look on the [...]

Where blog posts go to die.

my lame attempt at Fitbloggin11 to document how Im always wearing a jumpsuit** I adored Fitbloggin11. I met so many new people.  Visited with so many old friends.  Brought home so much knowledge & wisdom.  And just felt a true sense of renewed connection to our Tribe. Yet, with all those experiences, one sentence in [...]

Sweet Talking Ken

Monday, October 24, 2011


(please to excuse the blurry snapped in aisles photo) The other day when I was shopping with the Tornado I got sick and tired of her lollygagging and plunged on ahead she ambled down the toy aisle and became entirely riveted by a Ken doll. Mama!! Look! She shouted. It’s super cool! It’s a talking [...]

Ahhh Im back to MUSTurbating

Wednesday, October 12, 2011


(with apologies to the amazing Albert Ellis) My MUSTS these days? I must take new group exercise classes so I can yammer about my likes and dislikes here on the blog. I must get to the Tornado’s school and volunteer once a week. I must try a new vegetable each week so that Im role [...]

Unfurling the freak flag.

Monday, October 3, 2011


(our freak flags pointing, errr, flying) We like Shrek the movie(s). We LOVE Shrek the Musical. It’s cute. It’s filled with catchy tunes.  It’s a show all three of us adored which isnt always the case. The Tornado & I share the same favorite song. And, the first time we saw the musical, she leaped [...]

How I fight the pressure to be perfect.

Monday, August 15, 2011


Oh people. Believe me I know how vlogs can be a challenge to watch. Word posts are easily read on the sly at the office (yes. I said it.) Word posts are easily read in the morning while the Child is still pretending to slumber & you’re praying she actually falls back asleep. That’s how [...]

The one where I seek your sartorial help.

“Oh Mama. I love these. Can I have them when Im 16??”** Oh People. I am predictable and I realize this. (Please to reflect back upon my many ramblings about how the word play here is MIZFIT and MISFIT not Miss. Fit.) There are many facets of my life where I trust my gut implicitly. [...]

What’s in your gun?

Friday, March 11, 2011


This is a conversation which started over on my Facebook page and one Ive still not been able to get out of my mind. Actually, it started long before that (this is your cue to wriggle around & get comfy in your chair.  while this post shall be mercilessly brief there is lottsa navel-gazing coming [...]

I want you hold me.

Wednesday, February 16, 2011


(please to STOP, sit down, & commence gazing at your own navel as I proceed to blog whilst gazing into mine) It’s been a wee while since Ive blogged stream of consciousness. Whether it appears so or not (and believe me given my writing style Im cognizant of the fact it does not)—I tend to [...]
