Pitch Perfect 2

  I’m so happy to know I’m not the only total dork that loves this movie. Hilarious thing is Pitch Perfect is NOT my kind of movie. I didn’t watch it for many months after owning it. I bought it for my daughter because I knew she loved it. Then one night I watched it […]

Seattle Seahawks, Holy Shit!

O-M-G!!! Here’s the deal and I want to confess first thing. I’ve lived her all my life. I’m not a first round Hawks fan. I mean really, they’ve played like shit too many years and I grew up during the years of hard ass teams. My first love is Raiders, second is Bears. Then there […]

age is a number

Age Is A Number

It always amazes me when I run into women that truly worry about their age. Not just joke about it, but truly worry about this whole getting old thing. I won’t lie, there are times it hits me. At 42 I think I’m statistically middle age. If I stop and think about that fact it […]

Then the dreaded day comes when opening the closet door results in several purses, pillows or articles of clothing falling on […]
