Animal Crossing

Thanks to the COVID Pandemic my whole family has played a lot of Animal Crossing by Nintendo. It’s a chill game where you can “go” to islands and build things, buy things, cook things, etc. It is probably a boring game for most but for me it was a fun distraction. Then about 6 monthsContinue reading “Animal Crossing”

Xmas Movies

Another thing you can always depend on during the holidays is sappy Xmas movies. Hallmark has been making BANK on these suckers for years. There is always the one about someone trying to get home in time for the holidays, the funny kid gets in trouble but everything turns out okay movie, the sappy loveContinue reading “Xmas Movies”

Xmas Songs – BAH HUMBUG!

When JoAnne mentioned Xmas MUZAK from Kmart I had to curl up in a fetal position and rock back and forth until I got over the yucky memories that brought back. The only thing good about any of that canned repetitive music was when one of the FABULOUS gays at Kmart would belt out aContinue reading “Xmas Songs – BAH HUMBUG!”

The Wright Brothers

Does anyone else cry when they visit a museum or a site where something amazing happened in history? My husband and I do. The first time we went to a museum that we both admired and got misty eyed we knew we were a great match. Flight is so amazing to us and so special.Continue reading “The Wright Brothers”

We’re the type of family that always played games.

All those great board games – Clue, Monopoly, Trouble, Masterpiece, card games – you name it, we probably played it. So we were hanging around just chatting one evening, and Desna brought out “Jenga” cats. We had so much fun trying to balance those stupid cats!! And then we played Bullshit, and Yahtzee, and maybeContinue reading “We’re the type of family that always played games.”

It is a non profit organization that was founded by an inventor (Dean Kamen) in 1989. In my opinion, it is a FANTASTIC way to promote STEM and helpContinue reading “FIRST ROBOTICS”

Couple’s Getaway!

I am still not ready to travel out of state but I have been taking cautious jaunts here and there in my home state where I feel “safe” from COVID and angry people. That really does not leave many places in North Carolina but we have been making do. This past weekend my husband andContinue reading “Couple’s Getaway!”

Independence Day Makes Me Anxious

July 4th is right around the corner. I have watched firework sales tents pop up here and there. I will say, this year there are not as many and I’ve heard whispers that it is hard to get fireworks this year. I, for one, am glad. I know, I know I’m no fun. I’m sorry.Continue reading “Independence Day Makes Me Anxious”
