Middle Aged Mom's Couch Exchange
Posted Sunday, February 10, at 8:36 AM
Wanted: Gently used couch. Big flowers and ugly pattern fine. No stains or germs. Memory. Sitting on my Grandma's couch after Sunday dinner. My bare legs sticking to the clear plastic covering as the thick humid night air drifted through the parlor window. It took me years to understand the coverings. That day came about 24 years late as a young mother...
Why isn't my keyless fob unlocking my door?
Today, I pulled out my keyless-entry car fob and pointed it at my hotel room door and pushed unlock. The door didn't open. I was so glad the hallway was empty. I'm doing things, thinking things that well... are scaring me. Keyless-entry Fob Misuse -- Yes, the ones that come with our cars and trucks that are used to unlock them. ...
No one in Colorado has big hair.
I'm visiting my husband while he is on the job in Colorado. It is beautiful here -- the weather is nice, there is a lot to do, and the people are laid back. People here are different. First of all people here don't have big hair. As a person with wavy, crazy hair that is stuck in the 80's no matter how hard my stylist tries- I've got big hair. ...
Can I have a drink from your hose?
We survived. Our family survived the 100 mile yard sale. We had about a million people in our subdivision. Wait let me retract that, almost a million with a few soulless aliens thrown in for fun. It was about 100 degrees on my driveway. Our plan met a major glitch from the beginning -- the Boy Scout...
Death by Treadmill
Picture this... four treadmills lined up. Guy using one on the far left. I get on second from the right. Twinkie gets on the one between us. I'm going to town, I'm hustling, I'm living in the old days. 3.5 with some incline and 5.0 with interval -- no incline. Couch to 5K- I'm blowing you away! I've got the ear buds in, I'm rockin'!...

I am 48. Married to my high school sweetheart, mom of three college students, ovarian cancer survivor, only child - that is now an only adult caring for aging parents. Born in Cape, lived most of my life in Alaska. Yes, my husband and I graduated with Sarah and Todd Palin - known them most of our lives. I owned successful kitchen and bath design studios until I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Upon remission I decided to change my life. I used my English - Creative Writing degree to become a teacher. I also hold a MA in Eductation - Technology and Curriculum. We moved from Alaska back to Cape in case I died. I wanted my kids to know their cousins. That was 10 years ago. My view on life is odd. I have had extrordinary things happen and I choose to view in an extraordinary way. I am observant, intuitive, and feel like something is out there that I have yet to discover. I'm not afraid to speak my mind, quit a job because of unethical activities, and often root for the underdog. I'm sarcastic in nature and my students love it. I'm antsy, look younger than my age, and laugh really loud. Oh yeah - I love meeting odd people. Life is good. Robin Smith's blog is about observations, celebrations, and commentary about the idiosyncrasies, quirks, twists and turns of life. Exploring human nature and the people around us.
