Bed Injuries

When Mr. Comfortable and I were younger we rarely suffered bed injuries. We were more flexible and could move quickly. Now we’re older, stiffer, and our reaction times have slowed considerably. Bed injuries occur frequently.

National Dogs in Politics Day

Every September 23rd America celebrates (or at least some of us do) National Dogs in Politics Day. This holiday reminds us that sometimes non-humans make the most honest, dependable, and hard-working public servants. Duke, pictured below, is serving his fourth term as mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota!

International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Because I love weird things I’ve decided to celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day this year. The “holiday” is celebrated every September 19th. Who knew? I’m sure Mr. C will call a shrink and the kids will start looking for a cheap old folks home for me but their confusion will be worth it!

Spirituality in an Irish Family

I came from a large, Irish Catholic family. Every Sunday we attended Mass and I remember Daddy on his knees each night praying before he went to bed. Spirituality in an Irish family is very important. But, as a kid, we viewed things a little differently than the adults.

Special Diets and Family Dinners

I’ve always loved having our family dinners with the kids and grand kids. It’s a chance for us to spend time together over a good meal and enjoy each other’s company. But lately my kids’ special diets and family dinners are causing me headaches!

Fungus Amungus with Creeping Crud

This summer has been absolutely wonderful and, at the same time, not the best summer of my life. A perfect example of this is happening right now. The weekend began seemingly innocently. Friday night I got a sore throat. It was no big deal, really. On Saturday we attended our granddaughter’s 12th birthday party. It was so much fun and we stayed through the bonfire that evening. About 30 minutes after getting home I found I have Fungus Amungus with Creeping Crud.

Some Assembly Required

There are few phrases that strike fear into the hearts of anyone who has children or grandchildren more than “some assembly required.” And yesterday Mr. Comfortable and I ignored our instincts and found ourselves in a “some assembly required” situation. We survived but it wasn’t pretty.
