The other day on Facebook I saw a meme that says, “This is probably not the year to hang that mistletoe up around the office”. I nearly died. I mean yes it’s terrible what’s happening with all these perverted men doing unspeakable things to women. So to see that meme, made me bust out laughing… Continue reading Merry Christmas from the Family and We Still Have Leftover Thanksgiving Ham…
This week is Thanksgiving week in case you’ve not been reminded on Facebook by all your friends. Thanksgiving day we will see lots of plates of food on Instagram and families all smiling and happy. Let’s get real Y’all. All of that is mostly fake. Most of the food pictures look gross and/or the same… Continue reading Thanksgiving Fails and Perfect Family Holidays
There are some words and phrases that are like nails on a chalkboard for me. For those of you not in the age range of midlife-to almost dead, it’s what we used to write on before smart boards. You can google it for kicks. But back to my rant. Lately I have been on edge… Continue reading Viral Words In 2016 That Need To Go Before I Die.

Dear Dentist, You lied. All those years you’ve asked me if I flossed while having both your hands and dental tools shoved in my mouth. When I answered yes, you accused me of not being truthful, turns out you weren’t truthful. I’m so disappointed. While reading the news this week, I read that researchers have determined… Continue reading Open Letter to the Dentist and My Dad
I. Want. A. Cupcake. I realize this is not breaking news and there are all kinds of political and social issues we could poke fun of today. But I can’t even think clearly. My sugar level is so low I feel like I could pass out at any minute. No. I don’t have diabetes and… Continue reading Confessions of a Cupcakeaholic
I have a short list of things that
scare terrify me. And it all started with this:
A little place in North Carolina that became the first nightmare I can remember. It’s a recreation of the Land of Oz complete with a house falling on the witch’s legs. I can still remember the nightmare of my childhood with striped legs sticking out from under a house. SO thanks mom and dad for that.
This place is now closed to the public (making it oh so much more creepy) and opens about once a year for a few days for people to visit and remember the times they spent there as a child. (yay). In case you are in NC and curious, here is the link to the upcoming event: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/living/travel/article77860247.html
So then I got to thinking what else really scares me and I came up with this fun list:
- Spiders. They have a lot of legs so you have no idea which direction they will run. They have millions of baby spiders at one time. (Gross) Oh and they can jump too.
- Tornados. I think that came from the Oz business.
- Bats. Creatures from Hell. One time a bat touched my hair and I nearly peed myself. I was screaming like a lunatic and my neighbors thought my hubby was beating me. I kid you not.
- Jumping Crickets. Crickets in general are no big deal. But when they can jump over your head in a bathroom and you cannot get away and when you do it’s stuck in your hair. I can’t even.
- I am afraid one day my doctor will tell me I can no longer eat gluten foods or shellfish. I. WILL. DIE.
- I’m not afraid of the dark but I will admit I run and jump in the bed after the lights are out so that demon under the bed won’t grab my ankles. True story.
So now you know some of my biggest fears. What are you afraid of?
