TOTh (Ten on Thursday)

1. The Dad gets entirely too caught up in this American Idol stuff... I've only listened to them from my room - they all can go home as far as I'm concerned.

2. We finally had Christmas yesterday... I must have seen chrissy a hundred times since then but, belive it or not, we just exchanged presents yesterday when she came over to help me set up the tv. Christmas in July is so overrated... we like Christmas in almost April!

3. Funny how the veggie hoagie came full circle.

4. I know they aren't gluten free but I bought them anyway! Wheat, spelt, rice whatever - all I do is throw bread away anyway. Couldn't resist these though. Seriously - how cute are they???

5. At lunch today it made me both happy and sad to hear that Jonah was reminiscing about the two of us riding Toy Story Mania three times in a row last year while everyone else was on a different ride.

6. This puppy dog gets more treats for being BAD - BAD - BAD!

7. I bought these life hammers for everyone a few years ago. Yes, I'm a weirdo. I've been thinking about my car bursting into flames at any given moment since it always smells like something is burning in it... I was stuck on the hulton bridge in the hail storm the other day and got a little panicky. I took it out just in case my visions came true. It's crazy what the mind can do.

8. With that said - my tongue kind of feels numb.

9. It's been pretty busy over at Two Bitches with Two SUVs Moving Company and it's only going to get busier... I've been loading boxes and double checking with the boss on what we should name them... here's one of them:

10. If number 6 doesn't say enough - talk about a horrible dog mom... I heard a big clang in the other room a little bit ago and thought something fell in the kitchen. It was poor Lily swatting and barking at her EMPTY water bowl. Please don't call dog protective services on me.

T & A
Maybe I should start writing these posts in the morning when I can see straight. I'm actually really tired tonight. Lily's stomach was growling this morning and she freaked herself out. I was out in the backyard at 5:15 am in little pjs, my dad's giant hoodie and a blanket... We came back in and tried to go back to bed but it happened again and I think she thought there was a monster under the bed because she jumped off and went on the couch... I, of course, had to go with her. There's always so much going through my head at night anymore that I really don't know what I should talk about so I'll just talk about this sandwich...
I've been thinking about the T & A sandwich we used to get in North Carolina. It's been on my mind lately and have been wanting to make it. It was one of my favorite things that I kind of just forgot about until recently. It's turkey and apple (T & A) and cranberry mayo... yummy. I think alfalfa sprouts go on it too. I actually forget what cheese we used - that's why I haven't made it. I may do this one instead. Though GBA (gouda, bacon and apple) isn't as enticing a name.

Recipe here if interested.

Hoping the monsters stay away tonight. ;-)

A year ago today - this was the view I saw when I looked out the window... those tail lights I'll remember forever.
That evening (until the early morning the next day) my puppy dog paced back and forth between the bathroom and the top of the steps, where she stood whimpering for someone to come help us. I don't think she knew that we were the only ones in the house at the time... I'll never forget that she stayed right there with me though. She's at the bottom of the bed now as I type this - laying right across my feet, just like she did that night. She's been frustrated with me and my sleeplessness as of late and finally gave up and went in the other room the last couple nights. I'm glad she's here now, though.

I have so much more to say but I don't have the energy to say it right now so it's going to have to wait. Maybe later. I just can't right now.

Thanks, puppy dog, for being my true companion.

Love the Bud(s)

In the store, at least - I'm sitting here shivering and freezing. The garden and outdoor stuff is out at sam's already... I got a little uneasy going down those aisles tonight. They were always my favorite. I did want to fill my cart with all the big huge flower pots they had like I was on supermarket sweep getting the giant briskets and bags of diapers but I needed to stay focused... My dad's tv died the other day... not sure if I decided on the right one. Got it because the model number was 621. That's the extent of my decision making skills these days. Hope it's ok. Don't really feel like talking much right now - my head is spinning with too many thoughts. I slept about an hour last night and just really want to go to sleep... sharon tells me I can take two pills - so if I don't wake up tomorrow - it's her fault. ;-)

Saturday, March 26, 2011


We had dinner really late and couldn't decide if we wanted breakfast or not... so we ended up with a cheesesteak, a superburger and a "side" of smiley waffle.

Friday, March 25, 2011


just ladybugs playing games at a picnic.

Thursday, March 24, 2011


I'm just to the point where I can't do any more.
Tomorrow is another day.

Glo and I went for Hot Dogs today after her appointment - she thought she was in heaven.
It's been years since she's been there...
She wanted two (only ate one) and after her first bite said "this is better than getting drunk!"
She couldn't remember what I said to her earlier in the morning but she remembered every last detail about walking up to the original Original on Larimer Avenue on a hot night at 1:00 in the morning 60+ years ago... She was all over the place today - she talked in detail about my MILs funeral, Norfolk, being 16 when little stinker (my mother) was born and my mother going into the hospital to have me a couple hours after running up and down the steps giving out halloween candy. I don't think she ever called me by the right name. Looks like everyone thinks I'm JoAnn, I guess. ;-)

I'm glad I insisted on this appointment - The nurse came in and literally couldn't get a reading for her blood pressure... she tried three times and had to call someone else in. I was starting to think I was the only one that thought a pulse of 48 and BP of 80/55 was abnormal... Plus she lost almost 20 lbs in the last few months or so... Between all these visiting nurses and specialists and doctors it's sad that I had to figure this out on my own.

OK - who's next?

I think it's going to have to be Lily - poor thing. She's really suffering. These allergies of hers are getting to be too much for both of us. I'm about to rip many thousands of dollars of new carpet out of this damn house - though a food trial may be a little cheaper.

TOT (ten on tuesday)

1. The weather this morning reminded me of penn state. I have two weather scenarios... when it's really cold or when you can tell it's going to warm up by the afternoon but it's still chilly in the morning - "sweater weather." ;-) When the air hits me I sometimes get transported right back to that place - often my cedarbrook balcony or the walk to the post office or the library... The library has been on my mind lately and the downstairs vending area and pretzel nibs. I woke up the other night thinking I was alone, in the dark on the willard steps.

2. I did some yard work on sunday - well, I raked some leaves in the back... I love being in the dirt... I miss my plants and doing yard work at Dixon House. ;-( I always liked our little breaks and having to hop in the car all dirty and run up to rolliers for something and getting mineos - sans roasted red peppers.

3. Oh, how I miss ROLLIERS!

4. "The depth of his passion is immeasurable." Funny.

5. I guess everything is replaceable...

6. Did you ever see a hedgehog in a cast?
Now you have.

7. Did you see the story about this dog?

8. I need to eat more vegetables.

9. She is one strange pup.

10. This gets to me every time.

Monday, March 21, 2011


I love food... I always have - real or imaginary. It was always one of my favorite "toys." I loved going to Sears or Montgomery Ward and look into the refrigerators they had there and find all the fake plastic food.
Sometimes my Dad would even steal it for me. I would get in the car and he would hand me an egg or a hot dog! I'm sure there has to be some of it in this house still. The big thing on Etsy now is felt food play sets... so cute. Felt is the new plastic.
Anyway, I'm wondering if this obsession led me to my love of grocery stores... whenever we would go away for a work meeting or anywhere that was one of my favorite things - going to a strange grocery store!

Weird? Maybe.

I just like to see how it's set up, what they have in their hot foods section, what's new there, who shops there... Did you ever look into someone's cart to see what they had in it? I have. You can tell a lot from that, I think.

The grocery store is usually the wife's or mom's second home. I've been known to be there for hours. I did a lot of the shopping on my own but we used to go a lot together too. Almost like an excursion... go to eat... do the shopping. I think it's a very intimate thing going to a grocery store... couples go, families... "Let's get this" - "I don't like that" - "What do you want to have for dinner tonight?" It's kind of a shared experience. Maybe I'm making a big deal about an ordinary thing - but for me, it was meaningful... and, now, symbolic.

I need my meds. And a snack. Preferably not plastic or felt.

I've been waiting for the super moon after hearing all the hype for the last couple weeks... it arrived last night.
I got home and tried to take a picture and my camera battery was dead - luckily I took one earlier with my little camera when I was out so I got to document the occasion, at least...
It wasn't that big a deal really... we think the moon is super no matter how far away or close it is... ;-) Lily and I say hello to it every night!

I couldn't find my cord to download this then, but Lily got a bath yesterday...

Saturday, March 19, 2011



I've been de-friended by a couple people. I'm sure there will be more in the near future. The first wasn't a big deal but the other, though I knew would come one day, was a sad day in Jeannine world. ;-) I loved steve. You know, I don't think I ever said a bad word about him... Imagine that.

This photo was from about a year ago at a gift gathering party we hosted... little did I know what was going on in the minds of both these boys. The night of this photo is memorable... it was the straw that broke the camel's back for my husband.. Just an excuse, really, but that's what I was told then. I yelled at him for drinking out of steve's glass... I admit it was a silly thing but there was a whole shingles issue and the fact that I had recently found out I was pregnant so I was a little paranoid about everything, of course, and I wanted to be as safe as possible. Another misperception and miscommunication, huh, Pat? Anyway, I was scared and upset and thought Dave wasn't considering my feelings. He chalked it up as me not letting him do what he wanted to do and thought I was "disrespecting" him... Ok the only people that would have gotten that reference were the three of us and maybe my dad. ;-)

Anyway, I guess it's time to start saying some goodbyes and closing some doors... Friend or not, I have a lot of good memories with steve-o and sometimes I leave the vowels off of the end of words because of him. ;-)

Friday, March 18, 2011


It was a sunshine day today so I took the little pup for a walk in the park and we ran into Sandy. I think it was the longest walk Lily ever had. This little pup was pooped!

Thursday, March 17, 2011


I was looking up the year for this quote from Sally Field from her Academy Awards speech... It was 1984 for Places in the Heart and the quote, I read, is often misquoted as I did in my title. It's actually "... you like me, right now, you like me!" I was thinking about that when I saw these:
First of all - I know they are a little topical but how cute!?! Secondly, wouldn't it be nice if you can just sum up everything with a thumbs up (LIKE) or a thumbs down (DISLIKE) - it would make everything so easy and fun, wouldn't it? Just a quick - for the moment - I like it - I really like it... As sally said - right now, at least.

I liked "liking" things on facebook to kind of have everything all together... but now with Pinterest I think one day I'll be pinning all all my likes there and my poor facebook will end up like myspace!

Here's something I dislike, though... Did you ever get a friend request from someone you barely knew or actually never really liked? Do you feel like you have to like them now? I have four people that I haven't accepted. They have been sitting there for months but I haven't had the heart to just delete them... I also dislike the fake messages - it was so nice to find out about all the interesting and fun things you've been up to - I really couldn't have cared less about them the last how ever many years I didn't bother to real friend you but now that we are facebook friends I'm so glad we are BFFs.. because you're awesome. I added that last awesome part. ;-) It's all so very silly. Especially when things like this are happening...
It makes me feel kind of silly trying to compile all my favorite things into one place when some people lost all of their favorite things in an instant. Yet I still do.

Anyway, here's something I do LIKE... Did you see the dog in Japan that wouldn't leave his friend's side? You can click here to read the story and watch the video.

That's compassion.

I saw this necklace the other day... it was always one of my favorite quotes from Winnie the Pooh... I was thinking that if I live to be the age my mother was when she died I have a little less than 9 years left. I'm kind of hoping that 2012 thing is for real so I don't have to wait so long but we all know how that Y2K thing worked out so I may be out of luck. I did read that Nibiru is visible every 2,160 years - maybe that's a sign - 216 is my mother's "number" so we'll see what happens with that.

I started Patti Digh's Creative is a verb - if you are alive you're creative. I've had it since Christmas and just started taking a look at it. It looks like it will be as good as the first one! I read that one - Life is a verb - 37 days to wake up, be mindful, and live intentionally - a couple years ago after coming across her blog one day. The whole concept for the 37 days came about because her step-father was diagnosed with lung cancer and died 37 days later.

What would you do if you knew you had only 37 days to live?

I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with all that's going on with me and those around me. This is a noteworthy week for me... with it being a year yesterday that we walked into that ultrasound room and I looked over at my husband and knew all was lost. And I'm not just talking about the baby. It was a year ago today that he left for a work trip to las vegas and I walked into this very house with my vera bags and my puppy... not quite knowing then that I would eventually end up back here to stay.

I'm far behind on many things I need to do but I just can't do anything right now. I've been shivering all day everywhere I went. I think I'm taking my dog and my book and going into bed for a little bit and just get up later and stay up all night. Poor lily bud hasn't been feeling too great... we were both throwing up this morning. Like mama like puppy, I guess! I feel bad for the little thing - all she gets to see anymore is the backyard. I checked out a place in penn hills and took her back up to get her nails cut. She fell right to sleep in the car... I drove around a little and let her sleep. That's totally normal, right? ;-)

Here she is in the car - lift-lift-click-buckle-kiss!

TOT - Ten on Tuesday (just ten little things on my mind..)

1. This is the cutest thing I ever saw!

2. I just found my dad's light bill from february mixed in with a bunch of things that were in a bin at the bottom of my closet... I honestly don't even know what else is in there... I just put the bin back in the closet and shut the door. If Lily wasn't doing something she shouldn't have been I probably wouldn't have even realized anything was in there...

3. If I didn't collect pigs I would collect giraffes. I like giraffes.

4. Hmmm... 10.10.10

5. Chrissy has been obsessed with Christina Perri's Jar of Hearts since it came out - it's her jam. Before Lizzie left to go back to school she made her a cd with the song on it 10 TIMES! ;-)

6. My dad informed that he and his friends he goes fishing with are going to that gun bash in penn hills next month... he wants to have the pre-show and/or after party here. Drinks and appetizers. I told him that was kind of weird. I'm not going to stay here and serve everyone and I don't want to leave the dog here with them coming and going so I may take her for her first hotel stay!!! Trying to figure out where to go!

7. I watched wheel of fortune tonight. It reminded me of mum... It was a little annoying, though, because every time Lily heard a ding she ran to the door and barked. She's turning into a little freak dog.

8. Why is it that I never actually have time to sit down and read a magazine or watch a show... or read the sunday paper before the middle of the week? I really would just be happy to sleep and I can't even do that most of the time.

9. That women's shelter I threatened to go to Christmas night is looking better and better.

10. If I can just find one that looks like this it will be good. This room is spectacular! It would be like living in a coloring book.

My mother used to use that expression a lot... like when something came to her all of a sudden. Like, duh!?! I get it now! We've been bitching and complaining about how nothing fits on the shelves in the refrigerator... you could only get the tall things like milk and stuff on the door and there wasn't much room for it. I knew this whole time that all it was going to take was to move the top shelf down so we could fit the tall things on it. Did we do it? NO. We kind of just talked about how there was no room in the refrigerator for anything. Like it would just fix itself. I finally did it and wish I would have done it long ago.
Speaking of seeing... everything was really blurry today. I had to get Betty to take Glo to her appointment. I've been wondering if it would be worse to lose your sight or your hearing - if you had both to begin with... each would be bad in it's own way but I think it would be worse for me to lose my vision... I wouldn't get to see Lily's tail start wagging when she looked at me - she's "telling " me she wants to go to bed now... I must oblige. goodnight.

Sunday, March 13, 2011


A few nights ago Lily freaked out - something scared the hell out of her during the middle of the night and she jumped off my bed with her tail b/w her legs and went in with my dad... that was the first time since November that she didn't sleep with me. The same thing happened the next night she was sound asleep and got up and came in front of me and was barking at something next to the bed. I, of course, was creeped out b/c it almost looked like she was protecting me when she got in front of me. She seemed really scared and left again after awhile. I just took her outside a couple hours ago and we came in and she started barking at something in the cellar. I'm just wondering if she sees something I'm not????

I yelled at the bud a little too many times tonight. I can't tell you how bad she has been lately. It's like raising a really bad two year old that can't talk. She likes to grab pens and run away with them every chance she gets. Anyone that knows my love of pens can figure out that I am chasing her many times a day. She's always getting into trouble... for eating my boots, for instance...
I watched her try to grab the little calendar card (that is under her) for about 5 minutes... when she saw me looking at her she quickly sat on it - like I couldn't see her... she's very smart like that. I know she is only playing but I am at my wit's end with everything and she is driving me a little crazy. She's lucky she's so cute. :-)
OK - It's almost 2 am. I have to change this post to 11:59 so it registers as yesterday. I don't know whether I am coming or going but I better go to bed before it's time for me to get up. I have appointments every day this week-for me, for others, for lily... I used to hate when I would hear the moms I knew bitch and complain about everything they had to do taking their kids here and there - I know I'm starting to sound the same way. I better get to bed before it's time to get up...and before she starts barking again.

It was about 7000 degrees at the pool tonight for Dante's 2nd Birthday... Unfortunately I don't have a picture of cute little Dante blowing out his candles or the little 4 month old pug, Rocky, in his St. Patrick Day shirt that came with one of Chrissy's friends. I can't believe I didn't get any of those fun things - the girl with the camera attached to her at all times didn't snap any of that! I did get a picture of this, though.
It turns out that every other saturday is senior nudie night at the pool... the gang was coming in as we were getting ready to go. They were putting up the tarps to block the outsiders from seeing all their old naked loveliness. Mary said that she learned a few things from hosting this since 1984...

1. It's hard to keep eye contact when talking to any of them.

2. The statement "All men are created equal" is NOT true.

3. All men should be circumsized.

They bring food and have different themes... chili night... chocolate night... My Dad said he thought he heard they were going to have beans and wieners tonight. ;-)

I was thinking of staying... I did get a wink from the old Italian guy.

I've seen several Cirque du Soleil productions... La Nouba is still my favorite. I've been obsessed with the album again recently. If you haven't seen La Nouba in Orlando (WDW) you should go. It is a show like no other. See the preview here.

I feel like I'm one of the wacky characters juggling everyone's balls. I don't mean that as inappropriately as that sounds. I just feel like I'm teetering trying to keep everyone's shit in the air and am on the verge of letting everything fall out of my hands - right to the ground.

I was debating yesterday on ordering the michael jackson cirque tickets but thought it was too early - with the show (in pittsburgh) over a year away in 2012. Who buys tickets so far in advance? Katherine asked if it was before or after the end of the world was due to arrive that year? ;-) With all this weird weather and things going on she may be right to inquire about that. I don't mean to be all doomsday. I'm just not sure it's wise to plan so far ahead anymore.

A few days ago I found out that I need to see a neurologist and go for an MRI. I've been going numb on the top of my head and my face and chin and a couple nights ago the numbness got really bad and was traveling down my whole body plus I've been randomly getting really dizzy. I went in to the doctor and she said it's either anxiety, migraines or MS. I actually don't think it's migraine related - I haven't been having them as bad at all lately and anxiety - I don't know... what do I really need to be anxious about? ;-) This has been happening off and on and it happened awhile ago. I was still doing acupuncture at the time so she wondered if things were controlled because of that. She was more concerned than I thought she would be. I, of course, google doctored MS and it all seems to make perfect sense now and totally seems like it could be. That along with my recent vision changes (which we were blowing off as normal 40 year old stuff) prompted her to recommend what she did. Now I just have to figure out when to do all that.

I was wondering what would happen if I took a year off - for just me - and intentionally ignored everyone around me. Should have started that around March 1st. That would have been a good start date. I mean everything can wait, right? No one is more important than me. Screw everyone else. I've been lucky the last few days - MaryLou and Linda have been in and staying with Glo... and I've let everything go in the house - bills, dinner, cleaning, dirty dogs! So there should be no excuses... and no numbness, really.

Yet, I'm still here juggling...

... and numb.

Candy store... Shoe store and Dress shop. We visited all of them today. We took a road trip to Sharon, PA to look for prom dresses. We went to The Winner. At one point it was like we were swimming in a sea of dresses. We needed one of those big tall flags we used at the Amazing Maize Maze to find each other. Mission accomplished but I don't want to see another dress for a very long time. ;-)

While we were in town we had to go to Reyers shoe store and Daffin's candy shop. I think they took some liberties when they said they were the "world's largest" but we'll give them a break. The chocolate wasn't even that great but they did have these cute pig candies!

It was a yucky, rainy day and we just ran out of time to see all that Sharon, PA had to offer... had to pass on the Buhl Mansion and Tara... we chose a new diner over the original Quaker Steak & Lube. BTW, did you know Jim Winner came up with The Club - the auto anti-theft device??? There was a display of them in the "men's lounge" at The Winner. It had couches and a tv and also had beer and popcorn in it. No men, though. I thought of my uncle when I saw it - I think he may be the longest running user of The Club!

Anyway, we are calling this our January adventure... yeah, we are a little late in our seeing new sights at least once a month journey... I thought all this largeness would have taken my mind off all my weird symptoms I've been having but it was kind of still the same. ;-(

Did get to see a 400 pound turtle, 125 pound reindeer and 75 pound frog made out of chocolate though so, with that sight seen and the big old other stuff, january adventure is complete. On to February... we'll have to get to March later.

Very, very PINTERESTing

I started my Pinterest the other night. I have been hearing about this for awhile now and I think I may have actually said whoo-hoo out loud when I got my invitation.

I think I'm addicted.

The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, right?

I have a problem. ;-)

I'm always pulling tear sheets out of magazines. I try to file them as best I can or they often end up all piled together and then I lose track of them... I've pulled photos from the computer and tried to do this on my own and I just get my laptop all cluttered with "virtual" folders - then I can never find anything in the big old mess. I was excited to try this out and love love love it!

With this you can virtually pin your favorite things, ideas, wish lists, etc... categorize and organize them on as many boards as you choose.

Here's a screenshot... all nicely organized! ♥♥♥

What's great is the source is credited right there in the "pin" so if you need to reference it or find out what web site it came from it's all right there. Did I say I ♥ this thing?

You can follow other boards and re-pin from other people's favorites too so you get a lot of inspiration and discover all kinds of new things.

If you want to peek into my world and see what I like click here to go to my Pinterest. I'll be adding to it daily and nightly, I'm sure.

Just wanted to document that I got my first parking ticket today... $30 for being over by 13 minutes!

TOT - Ten on Tuesday

1. I have never done so many things at the last minute in my life - intentionally - because I just didn't care or was too exhausted to do it any earlier.

2. I think I slept for about 45 minutes last night... didn't go to bed until 3:30. This random numbness I'm getting is a little crazy and scary... waiting for the doctor to call me back now.

3. Mystery solved, the statement "you get what you pay for" is obviously not true.

4. Lily is the best snuggler ever.

5. She needs a bath - BAD!

6. Did you know you need some sort of certificate for working in a lot of offices? I don't even know word or office or powerpoint or any of those computer things. If it's not a Mac I can't do much and even that is pushing it.

7. The Dad really gets excited for taco night.

8. Two boxes of girl scout cookies down - 6 to go.

9. Hmmm... the timing of that event couldn't have been more perfect... Coincidence? I think not.

10. I thought the pumpkins were just buried in the ground underneath the snow - turns out they were, in fact, rotten after all. Yes I still have fall pumpkins out and it's March. I could care less.

That was the theme for the 25th anniversary of Disney World which was being celebrated when we were on our honeymoon. Since I documented yesterday's date I might as well finish this Disney thing out... I found a folder stored deep on my laptop with a bunch of pictures I was going to use for a blurb book - I had started making calls about renewing our vows in Disney Land during a work trip to California last year and the book was going to be part of it. I was off track, huh?

Anyway, I came across these from our honeymoon... we had a private photo shoot around the park.

They stopped the band...

We took a little off the top...

And even showed off our rings to the big guy himself.

We went back to the original brick to join hands...

...and took some shots that were dream photography worthy.

We even were escorted to some restricted areas of the castle - behind the gates and on the turrets... I must not have scanned all of them at the time but I did find this one on the grounds...
The castle was all dolled up for the 25th anniversary of the park. It was transformed into an 18 story birthday cake.

Looks like mice aren't the only ones that like cheese in that park.

Cheesy photos and all, though, it was a special time.
I'm loving that the lamp post is in this one... it was always a sign to stop and look for the out of order numbers on the brick.

There is nothing like the feeling you get when you walk in those gates and get a map or walk down Main Street with all those people or watch the fireworks in Epcot or walk by some "secret" that we found out on one of the many tours we did around the park. Even driving under that big Walt Disney World sign would take my breath away. All the times I've walked around that world... there's a lot of magic to remember.

So I guess now it's time to say good bye to all the Disney-ness of it all... I could go on and post a zillion more photos but I'll spare everyone the reminiscing... I still haven't found my disney door scans yet so I'll probably be back at some point with those.

Oh, and I just have to say this once: Por favor, mantenganse alejado de las puertas. ;-)

See ya real soon...
