What’s In Your Bag?

Sometimes I wonder if I am the only person who feels the need to be completely prepared for any type of emergency at all times. Or, have I finally crossed the line into full-blown-crazyville? I will let you, my darling readers, decide. But first, I should probably explain myself.  There are two specific reasons for […]

The Reason Why – I Am The Queen of TMI

*WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS GRAPHIC CONTENT*   Once upon a time, there was a girl named Meleah. She was a free-spirited, good-time-having, happy-go-lucky, kind of girl, filled with whimsical hopes and dreams. She lived to laugh. And she liked to imagine a world with endless possibilities.       But then one day, everything changed. […]

Welcome to Grey Gardens

  Well, people. It’s official. I’m old. I am old as fuck. But I am not talking in terms of age. I’m talking in terms of bodily functions. I am just plain old. Why? Well …   It’s not just because I collect social security due to my failing health issues. And it’s not just […]

Happy New Year MoFos – Wrapping up 2012 – Welcoming 2013

  2012 was an interesting year for me, to say the least. I really took a beating health wise. But it wasn’t all bad. Let’s recap. Shall we? In January, my dearest friend “Melody” was forced to climb Broke Box Mountain. And quite frankly, I hope she never has to climb that mountain, ever again. […]

The other day I was reading my friend June’s blog, just like I do every single day. She was discussing ways to save money and these are some really great tips. But one of the suggestions, regarding Name Brands really caught my attention and got me to thinking. I am a very loyal Brand Name […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 21: Gratitude

I spend a lot of time reflecting upon the things I have to be grateful for. But, it’s not all that often that I take the time to write those things down. So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’d like to share my gratitude list. 1. My son, Justin, for he is truly the light […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 20: Dear Cleaning Lady

Dear Cleaning Lady, I’m sure you’re not aware of my rule. And I am really not trying to be rude. However, you should probably know that NO ONE is allowed to look at me, much less talk to me, until after I’ve had at least two cups of coffee. And no one is exempt from […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 19: Full Body Scan

“The technician missed her vein! The injection didn’t go into her blood stream! Page Dr. Lizensczhacts! STAT!” The flustered nurse screamed across the Emergency Room. The skin on my arms bubbled up until it was covered with welts and blisters. The heart monitor beeped loudly and the oxygen mask strapped to my face felt suffocating. […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 18: Religious Family History

Yesterday, I told you how my mother and I prepare for Family Functions. And I also explained that we have a lot of those around here because we celebrate both the Jewish and Catholic holidays. And now I’m going to tell you why. Anyone up for a quick family history? Yes? Good. Let’s start with […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 12 : The Power of Saying, “No.”

Saying, “No!” seems like it should be easy enough. It’s two little letters. It’s one simple word. And while I have no problem saying, “No!” when it comes to my son, I’ve had difficulty saying, “No!” when it comes to other family members and sometimes even my friends. By a show of hands, who else […]
