It’s A Grammy Post Y’all!!!

Y’all are going to be so jealous after reading this that you don’t have Grandmothers like mine. For shiz.  Prepare yourself for some classic Grammy. So Saturday was my Popsie’s 78th Birthday (holla) and we had the family over for lunch. After lunch we decided to play Apples to Apples (if you haven’t heard of [...]

Saying Goodbye.

Yesterday, I had to say a painful and oppressively final goodbye to my dog Hansel. He was old but he was the best dog any Be A Lifehacker could ask for. He protected me when I felt threatened, he comforted me when I was afraid, and he soothed me when I was ill. In [...]

I love Cracker Jacks. A lot. When I was a little girl they used to have prize- really exciting prizes like rings, and puzzles, and compasses, or better yet, compass rings.

Are You Still Blurging?

Conversations and quotes courtesy of my Grammy. I would just like to remind you she is a real person who really says these things. Enjoy (I know I do). “This Socks” We were playing a game and my Grammy was losing miserably. So miserably that she exclaimed “This socks!”. I responded, “Grammy, I think you [...]

Accidental Breast Exams In Restaurants

My sister’s university graduation (she graduated from one of the top nursing schools in the nation) was last weekend. It was brilliant. I am so proud of her. Not because she graduated but because of what she did at her celebration lunch….. Male cousin: Hey, what color of nail polish is that? Sister: Grayish purple. [...]

Ghosts V. Hotel Renovations

So last weekend I went to Dallas to visit my sister and we spent the night in a hotel. Not just any hotel- an historic hotel. Which are my favorite kinds of hotels because they are usually haunted or at least have a grisly history of murders, suicides, and murder suicides. The hotel we stayed [...]

I Just Realized, You Don’t Really Know Me.

I had another epiphany. You’re probably thinking, “Wait, didn’t she just have an epiphany like two days ago?” The answer is yes. Yes I did. Then, today, I had another. So that makes my epiphany count two for the last week. Impressive, no? Anyway, I was talking about how much I love writing this blog [...]

The Circus

Below are some highlights from the circus aka Thanksgiving. Please keep in mind, these are my relatives, so don’t be surprised at the bizarre nature of the comments. I get my absurdity honestly. The Squirrel Anecdote After lunch, while munching on chips and homemade salsa (This is Texas y’all) my 8-year old cousin randomly and [...]
