My Time In Jail

Searching For Something?

February 4, 2013

Y’all know that I can relate to the crazy. Some of these people though? They take crazy to a whole ‘nother level. Have a look for yourself…. La Fayette, Georgia arrived on “What I Learned at the Funeral Home — From Inmates to Playdates” by searching for live embalming process. Hey La Fayette, I’m so […]

Twenty Years

February 29, 2012

In approximately five weeks, McDaddy and I are scheduled to attend our twentieth reunion. It doesn’t seem possible that we’ve been out of school for twenty L-O-N-G years. That means that this girl is almost forty. Not that there’s anything wrong with being forty, because age is just a number. Mostly. I can’t help but […]

Everyday Is Payday

October 21, 2011

Before we got pregnant (and by we, I totally mean ME, except that it was a decision we made together), McDaddy and I decided that I would quit work once our baby was born. It was an easy decision, still, I knew it would take some getting used to. When I worked at the jail, I shared an office […]

The Joy Of My Life

March 8, 2011

I spent most of the day sitting at my dining room table with three other PTA mothers processing cookie dough orders. It was the second fund-raiser of the year for Stevie’s school and was necessary because the budget for this school year has not been met. After processing 168 orders ($23,000) I am pleased to say our fund-raising […]

X — Marks the Spot

February 25, 2011

McDaddy is out of town again this week and it is quiet in our house. The boys are asleep and I’m doing my nightly blog post from the couch while watching American Idol. A week like this one is not rare for us, but it never gets easier. McDaddy is no doubt saving the world one control system at […]

Let It Roll

January 28, 2011

I started a post about Facebook but decided it was going to take more time than I wanted to devote right then to complete my thoughts (surprise!) so I abandoned it in favor of something a little less time consuming because I am watching American Idol and it’s hard to think clearly when I’m focused on JLo’s skin and […]

My Time In Jail

January 14, 2011

I spent six years in jail. I just love saying that. In addition to the five years I was actually employed there, I spent my senior year of college as an intern there. I was a naive twenty-something who knew nothing about street lingo or being hustled, and I thought P.C. meant politically correct. I hadn’t been behind […]

My Annual Recap

December 31, 2010

My long-time bloggy friend, Jo-Lynne from Musings of a Housewife is hosting a blog re-cap carnival (complete with a snazzy button) and I thought it would be fun to play along, just as I did last year when I posted My Year In Review. I’ll be looking back at the first line (or two, or three depending […]

Thanks For Hoppin’ By

August 7, 2010

Well look who’s arriving late to the party! Better late than never, I guess. First off, I hate to be late. For anything. If this is your first visit to ‘From Inmates To Playdates’, I’d like to welcome you to my humble abode. I dish out a daily dose of crazy here everyday and I’d […]
