This Too Shall Pass. Or Not.

July 8, 2013

I’m thinking it may be time to throw in the towel on this-here blog. As much as I love this family-friendly – daily rambling about my faith, my family, and my love for the Saturn Sky – I think the time has come to put it to rest. And write a medical blog instead. This is no lie – and […]

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….

At The First Sign Of Trouble

January 6, 2012

On a terribly boring day, I sit here, laptop in hand (or on my lap, as it were) attempting to come up with something thought provoking or amusing to write about. On a good day, I come here already knowing what it is I’m going to blog about and sit here with my fingers on the […]

Engaged In A Fierce Battle

January 12, 2011

Back in 2008, I joined the YMCA near our house and started on a weight-loss journey. My goal was to lose a pound of week for forever as long as it took to get healthy. I stayed with it hot and heavy for 25 weeks. I lost 25 pounds and it felt good knowing that […]

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 […]

I Am A Girl…

June 4, 2010

I am a girl who loves to sit in her big, blue, bloggy chair every evening while watching The Young And The Restless and writing the next day’s blog post. I am a control freak and, as a result, constantly update my funeral plans monthly. I am a girl who has a difficult time saying […]

I Am Not Dramatic!

May 17, 2010

Welcome to another edition of Not Me! Monday, where I share all the things I didn’t do this week. Or in this case, this past weekend. It was not me who spent the weekend loving all over my nieces and nephews, who were visiting from all over. There are 15 babies on McDaddy’s side under […]
