May 2009


May 11, 2009

This weekend I decided that Husbandrinka and I needed to expand our vocabulary. I asked him if he agreed and he said “whatever” which translates to “yes, and you are the most beautiful woman that I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen many women, but not in an inappropriate way” so I asked him if he […]

Putting the Vice in Advice

May 10, 2009

We’ve streamlined Mother’s Day at our house. I put an end on flowers and a ban on breakfast in bed, and I’m too practical to insist on good behavior.

Cleaning: It May Be Contagious

May 3, 2009

The great thing about doing your own cleaning, especially if you are me, is how much mileage you can get out it. It’s sort of like household chemo. Like the other day, Husbandrinka came home with our kids, plus my son’s friend and the friend’s mother. Well, the mother is also my friend, but that’s […]

Thank you.

May 2, 2009

The winners of my “Will-blog-for-sponsorship contest” are blogless Peajaye and Blognut. Please email me at with a topic that […]
