Lessons from a four year hiatus

Greetings good readers! [insert sound of crickets chirping here] Okay, I deserve that. I have to admit I haven’t written in a long time. Four years give or take a post. Yet, here I am sitting in a coffee shop for the first time in years and the first thing I wanted to do was write something snarky, or funny, or smart, or all of the above. How the hell are you? Good I hope! You see, for the last four years I’ve been a Mom,...

Pregnancy at the Menopause Mafia

Did I ever tell you that this site is named after my two older sisters who suffer from hot flashes and sticky spots left by those hormone patches? In fact one of them is old enough to be out of the menopause by now. I’m explaining, because if not it will cause some confusing when I say…..I’m pregnant!!!!!! It’s about freakin’ time! Captain Wentworth and I had been work, work, working at this for a little...

2 Sangria recipes to die for

For summer sippin nothing beats a cold glass of Sangria. Here are two recipes you’ll love. The red Sangria has a hint of cinnamon and the Blackberry is a sweeter version rich with berries. This is one of my absolute favorite drinks, a fruity Sangria with a little splash of cinnamon. Delicious! It’s easy to make, but it does work best with a particular brand of Sangria mix. Monin makes a few different kinds of Sangria mix,...
