This is what happens when I can’t find my ponytail band and I haven’t taken my meds. *sigh*

It’s official…KV is in full throttle spoiling mode. I told him that I don’t care for raisins but rather walnuts in oatmeal cookies. I visited him last night and guess what was in the oven? That’s right…oatmeal walnut cookies! They were delish!

He’s such a great baker and cook! I’m spoiled to the core and I love it!


Claddagh rings September 24, 2008

I’m not entirely sure why, but I love the look and history of the Claddagh ring.


In case you don’t know…


The name “Claddagh” refers to a small fishing village in County Galway (now part of Galway City itself) in the west of Ireland.

Legend has it that the claddagh symbol was originated by Richard Joyce, a Galway seafarer kidnapped by pirates and sold into slavery in North Africa where he learned the art of goldsmithing.

When he was released, nothing could keep him from his beloved Galway where he returned to become a master goldsmith and where he created the Claddagh ring. For centuries this was used as a wedding ring by the fisher folk of Claddagh village, which nestled outside the walls of Galway city in the west of Ireland.


Claddagh rings are worn as friendship, engagement or wedding rings depending on how they are worn:       



Friendship – by placing the ring anywhere on your right hand.
Engagement – by placing the ring on third finger of your left hand with the heart pointing outwards.
Wedding – represented by wearing the ring on the third finger of your left hand with the heart pointing inwards towards your heart.

The Sex and the City Movie is released TODAY! I’ve had it on my calendar since about April.  I’m so flippin’ excited! I’m such a nerd that I’ve already been to the Best Buy website and paid for my DVD and arranged for instore pick up. That way I don’t have to waste precious time in the store looking for the display. *sigh*

KV is allowing me to watch it on his big screen tv. He’s promised not to make fun of me although I know he’d rather take a beating than watch this movie. So…tonight between 5:15 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., my ringer will be turned OFF! My girls need my full attention!


In 2 years and 2 months…I’ll be 40…and apparently, I’ll be worshiped.

In case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40:As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few  reasons why:

A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, “What are you thinking?” She doesn’t care what you think.


If a woman  over 40 doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about  it. She does something she wants to do, and it’s usually more interesting.
Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you  at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get  away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.


Older women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off that you are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons.

Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress.
Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, “Why buy the  cow when you can get the milk for free?” here’s an update for you. Nowadays  80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage! Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!
