FEMA Rushes Supplies To New Orleans In Anticipation Of Light Snow
I have a neighbor who hates the heat and loves the cold (d’uh Einstein – don’t live in Southeast Louisiana). When I pass him each day while walking Chulo the Stupor Dog (actually he walks me), he always has some smartass comment about the weather (& though you would never believe it) I give a […]
If you live in Louisiana (not far how this stretches), at least St. Tammany, you do not have yellow filters over your eyes! This yellow pollen haze is real and it is kicking my arse! Forget car washes for now, don’t bother pressure washing your house just yet, keep your windows closed and be careful […]
Remember that episode from “King of Queens” when Doug drags Carrie to a Home Repair store to try and find “couple friends” without kids? Well, we have decided we either (1) need to convince all our friends to get boats (2) get a bigger boat (3) buy a waverunner so we can fit more friends […]
I wish I could declare it “The Summer of Greta” and slowly decompose like George did (a little Seinfled humor for you). But I am officially declaring it the start of summer – NOW. Two more months of school, planning the vacation to Destin, signing kids up for camps…yep summer! The pool is clean and […]
Traveling from New Orleans to Boston today was problem free. A mild inconvenience in Charlotte, which if I chose to get bumped, we would have ended up with 4 free tix. But you know the deal, the next flight will be delayed and the luggage would be lost (with our jackets) – so…NO DEAL (but […]
D’uh, they are both interactive (I LIVE for comments-hint). Well readers, as you know (or you don’t and should read my archives), my parents are visiting from MA and they hey have never ever been to Mardi Gras before. So, I spent the day explaining (too freaking cold to go to a parade today) why […]
Complain about the rain, complain about the sun, the heat, the cold, the humidity. But if you are 9yo and get off the school bus – you run in the house and get on your bathing suit! So loosen up everyone and do something carefree and silly today. Also, if negative thoughts enter your head […]
Image borrowed from here(the eyes move). Now where did I put those flashlights?
My kids are getting the whole Louisiana weather summer pattern. Barely a day has gone by where they didn’t get some quality outdoor time (when they are outside I lock all the doors, grab the bon-bons and sit my butt on the couch to watch my “stories” – ya right). When they wake up it […]
That’s it, I’m re-writing mapquest for NOLA. I headed off to an Organizing job in Uptown yesterday. I have no idea where Uptown is, Downtown, Mid-town, wrong side of town- I only know landmarks. There is no map grid when you are driving that says – “YOU ARE HEADING TOWARDS THE WESTERN PERIMETER OF UPTOWN!!!!” […]
I had to share the anarchy of my night at Pelican Park f with y’all. First let me start off saying, this is the nicest and most well run and kept ball park I have been to in all my travels. Son # 1 was taking the mound at 5:45 – sharp. The only problem […]
Everyone seems to have allergies with all the pollen around. The yellow haze on my newly detailed car is hanging around and rain is coming. Hopefully this will wash all the crud away! On top of that, I have so much necessary housework!
ATTENTION: All you businesess in Mandeville, Covington, Metairie, NOLA…anywhere I write about…jump in now before I charge you a full FEMA check for a tiny ad!!! “This” blog has only been around a short time, but I maintain others and have been a blogger for 2 1/2 years now. I know what I am doing […]
