Asylum Announcements 2.0

It’s 3:09 am and I just got The Diva back to bed. I’m tired. I want to go to sleep. And I have to do that with my Husband snoring like a freaking buzz saw next to me. I swear that man could wake the dead with his snores! No wonder I’m tired all the […]

Happy Birthday, Big Bro!

I love you, but you are quickly heading to UNDER the hill instead of OVER the hill. Do you realize you are halfway to 50 now? DAYUM. Happy 45th birthday, Kev. You know I love you. And The Diva wanted me to tell you that she loves her favorite uncle and wishes you a Happy […]

Just Another Wordless Wednesday…

This is just a little slide show of our Halloween that I put together. I had so many pictures, I thought it would be easier and look a whole lot cleaner if I made it into a video, that way my post wouldn’t be 50 miles long. I also made a video of The Diva […]

Just Another Wordless Wednesday…

I decided to post this video from our trip to the beach last month because clearly Mother Nature can’t decide whether it is Summer or Autumn here in SoCal. It is going to be almost 90* today. While most of you are getting snow or some other kind of cool weather, I am stuck in […]

Just Another Wordless Wednesday…

Remember how I was worried that The Diva wouldn’t make any friends in school and that she would end up being the sensitive, hall monitor child no one wanted to play with? Well, I give you The 3 Musketeers… {L to R} Leslie, Alyssa and The Diva After only a couple of days of school, […]

Blog Trolls: Do They Really Think They’re Anonymous?

A family member found my blog this past Tuesday. It’s my evil SIL!! I have no clue how she found me — I don’t reveal my full name online — or even why she is going through it with a fine toothed comb. OK, I am 99% positive that she is looking for ammunition to […]

That’s IT!! The Diva Is Going To Be “The Girl In The Plastic Bubble”…

The Diva has tonsillitis. She has been in school FOUR days! And she rarely gets sick. The last time was this past Winter. She has had a sniffle here and there since, but nothing that really slows her down. When I picked her up from school yesterday, she said her throat hurt and she had […]

The Diva, my precious {And precocious} baby girl, starts her very first ever day of preschool in 9 hours and 30 minutes. I am freaking out! What if she gets scared and cries for us? What if the teacher or other kids think she’s weird? OY! Yes, I am nervous as hell. I have no […]

{My} Labor Day….

I know most of you see Labor Day as the official end of Summer and the start of the new school year. Or as just another 3-day week-end where you can barbecue with friends and family. But I am now seeing it as something else entirely. Everyone gets a day off from work. Week-ends, holidays, […]

Next Time, Daddy Can Take The Drama Queen!

This past Tuesday, I took The Diva down for her first ever school physical. Even though she had her yearly physical in March, the school district needed some “extras” including a urine dip, TB test, complete blood panel, blood lead test and an iron level. I even got her to pee in the cup. Want […]
