FOMO

Fomo. You would hear that word being said quite a bit around our office if you happened to drop by. It means “fear of missing out”, but you probably already knew that. New words and phrases have usually hit their peak and are no longer cool by the time I start hearing them. I promised…

I’m Not Lying. I Swear.

Are you a good liar? How do you tell when someone is lying? Those are two more of Joey’s seventy-eight questions to me. The first question is an easy one. The answer is no. I’m not a good liar. Of course, those of you who don’t know me that well yet can’t be sure if…

TAMMY!

One of my bosses and I have a love-hate relationship. I love him — he hates me. Well, maybe he doesn’t hate me. But I apparently annoy the hell out of him. Without even trying. And even when I try to not annoy him. And that’s not good. It’s not good at all. TAMMY! That’s…

Blessed Beyond Measure

Oh my God! Dandruff can lead to death? Taylor Belle was sitting beside me on the couch, reading her health book while doing her homework. And that was what she thought she read. I gave her that look that I guess mamas give their children sometimes. She said it a second time. Dandruff can lead…

Smoking

My daddy smokes. He has smoked as long as I can remember. Occasionally, a pipe, but mostly cigarettes. He is almost seventy-five and has had three strokes over the last few years. And, yet, he still smokes. And you wonder where I get my hard headedness. It was in the 1970’s, while I was in…

More Questions From Joey

Continuing on with my questions from Joey – In what ways do you think I am like you? Not like you? Well that’s an easy one. All of your good stuff – that’s from me. All the not so good – obviously from your dad. Seriously though, the traits I am most proud of in…

Have You Seen My Life?

It’s the Friday of a holiday weekend, and I got off of work a couple of hours early this afternoon. The kids are with their daddy for the next three days. I am a single woman with no one to tie me down. The sky is the limit. It’s time to live life to the…

The Greatest Gift

Having children makes my life much more interesting. Back at the beginning of the year, Joey emailed me a list of seventy-eight questions. Yeah, I actually counted. Questions like what’s the best advice you’ve ever received, what is something that most people don’t know about you, what’s your favorite quote, what’s the purpose of life,…

Guilt Trip

I was sitting in my bathroom, getting ready to go work at a wedding. You know, the usual getting ready stuff, fixing my hair and putting on some makeup. Mason came to the bathroom door and told me that Grandma and Grandpa were here. I was kinda surprised. Mama doesn’t come by to visit very…
