Man Dies Trying to Commit Suicide

That headline would be a lot more funny if it weren't true. According to MSNBC a man waded into San Francisco Bay threatening to kill himself. He walked into the water until he was neck deep. Would be rescuers watched for nearly an hour until he died and then someone finally pulled him out of the water. The would be rescuers were firefighters

I Hate My Cat

I've had it with the cat. Each night she wakes me up at 2am. I don't know what she wants because she doesn't tell me. When she wakes me she runs to the basement where her food dish and litter box are kept. I check both to make sure one is filled and the other is empty and then I go back to bed.

Death in the Family

And it's all my fault. I killed the hermit crabs. At least I think I did. It's hard to tell since they don't do anything. Hermit crabs aren't like the cat or the dog. If you forget to feed or water then they make noise, they drink out of the toilet, they throw their bowl around until someone notices and feeds them. I

Everybody Pees

That isn't quite as revolutionary as "Everybody Poops" but still, it is true. There isn't anything to be ashamed about when it comes to peeing, except if you call it urinating and then it's just weird. The reason I mention the whole pee thing is that the other day I was peeing. Let me back track for a second. My bathroom is above the water

It’s Time To Get New Glasses

This is a picture of me minutes after I lost my eyeglasses. I was taking taking two of my nieces on a jet ski ride and they wanted to do some tricks. So I did a few tricks. Tight turns basically and we all went flying. These were not just any old pair of eyeglasses. These were prescription glasses. Expensive sunglasses. I wish I had

Thanksgiving Recap

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I had a comedy of errors for mine and even took a picture for you. My son loves watching the food channels and announced that he wanted to brine the turkey this year. He also wanted to deep fry it but that wasn't something I was willing to do nor  let him try on his own. We also

Second Annual Complain About the Heat Post

Here it is my second annual complain about the heat post. It's too hot. Too hot to do just about anything except park myself in front of the fan between trips to the bathroom because I am drinking so much water. I don't know why I live in this part of the country. It's too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer.

I Had a Great Mother’s Day

I hope all you mothers out there had a lovely Mother's Day. I had a pretty good one. Not only did my kids actually get me cards but they each got me a gift. I got two tear jerker cards from each kid, I suspect neither of them read them because my kids are not all that sentimental and the little one can't read. My

A Watched Pot

I got nothing for you. I know it's pretty lame to post when I have nothing but I can't stand to see that my last post was last Thursday. It just really drives me crazy. I was laid off on Thursday so I should have plenty to write about but I just don't. I've been trying to get my grass to grow, the stuff on

I Create My Own Stress

Duh, I know. If you have been reading my blog for a while you have already figured this little factoid out but I wasn't convinced until today. Yesterday my daughter and her friend went outside with the idea that they would start the garden. I even bought my daughter some seeds at the hardware store when I picked up a filter for my furnace. I
