A long time ago my daughter, Tara, told me, “Mom, I love you, but you could trip over a dust bunny!” And I laughed and laughed because that was such a great and funny line but then I had to agree with her because that is the truth, unfortunately. I am an infamous klutz and … More My Latest Klutzy Moment
Pardon the reference to the 1989 movie “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” but that movie title just seemed so hilariously appropriate for what happened to me and my daughter, Tara, Saturday night, May 21, 2016. I had watched the Preakness horse race earlier that evening, disappointed that my horse, Nyquist, had only come in third … More Tara and Mom’s Not-So Excellent Adventure

The St. Patrick’s Parade held in Bay City, Michigan, is one of the largest in the state, typically lasting for at least 4 hours, if not longer. Bay City celebrates St. Patrick’s Day in a weird way.

While my daughter, Tara, and her boyfriend, Justin, enjoyed a much-deserved and needed date night, I babysat 2 of my 3 granddaughters on Valentine’s Day. Tara and Justin have had a rough time so far this year, as I had mentioned in a previous post, “Can We Have a Wednesday Re-do Please?” https://jeneanebehmeswritings.wordpress.com/2016/01/28/can-we-have-a-wednesday-re-do-please/ Their only … More Valentine’s Day 2016
Today was one of those days that we all wished we could just go back to sleep, pull the covers over our heads, and just wait until Wednesday was done with us. My apartment complex is still in the midst of major renovations and we were all notified several days ago that due to testing, … More Can We Have a Wednesday Re-do Please?
On Christmas Eve I got up at 8am to have breakfast, take my fistful of pills, shower, feed my kitty, etc., so that I could be at my daughter’s by 10. I was babysitting two of my three granddaughters so that Tara and Justin could finish up their Christmas shopping. Now this is motherly and … More Christmas 2015
On Thursday, December 17, 2015, my daughter, Tara, and I thoroughly enjoyed our first…and our last… Downton Abbey Pre-Season Gala Event hosted by Q-TV, one of our local PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) television channels.
