Taking the pet on a trip? DON'T DO IT!!
I visited my sis in New Orleans, who's moving home to Philly this summer.  I offered to fly her cat home so Fuzzybutt wouldn't have to suffer the road-trip ordeal.   

Can you believe it cost $125 (one-way!) for the cat to be shoved under the seat in front of me?!! 

No pretzels. No water.  Nuthin. What a scam.  Even a child can sit on your lap FOR FREE. 

Plus, I felt like an outlaw going through security: they make you hold a clawing, squirming cat while they swab your hands for traces of explosives.  Yup, cats can be terrorists, too. 

The best - the evil eye from the grouchy passenger that "can't BELIEVE they'd let a cat on the plane! What if I'm allergic?!"  He wasn't. Just an ass. 

I'll NEVER do that again.

This is my inner child ....

This is EXACTLY how I feel when I attempt to cook. 
And right now, I'm totally using the fact that Cole won't stop pulling things out of the Lazy Susan as my lame excuse to not cook ... I HATE this stage of repeatedly having to pick the same things up and put away - can't get anything done! 
LAZY Susan, my ass!!

Does your high school deserve to be on the "best of" list?

77 Pennsylvania schools made the list of the top 2,000 public high schools in America - is yours on the list?
(check here:)

Congratulations to Dallas & North Pocono- the only schools in Luzerne/Lackawanna Co's to make list!  Not too shabby, considering there are areas (Lehigh Valley, for instance) that didn't have any schools listed.  Philadelphia suburbs had the most high schools in PA on the list ... congrats to my alma mater: Wissahickon High School !

I was really hoping more schools would be listed in NEPA, were you?  I was surprised Lehman didn't make it (go easy on them, Dallas!), nor Abington Heights (btw, Abington High, outside of Philly, made the list, not to be confused with AH in Clarks Summit)

Which public high schools do you think got robbed?

I may be a mom, but I think like a 12 yr old boy ...

I was so touched when I received my FIRST handmade (literally!) gift from my 15 month old son, Cole.  It's a flower, made with the imprints of his hands ...

...althooooough, I'm still trying to figure out what body part imprint made the leaves?!!! 

C'mon, you wondered, too.

A Facebook friend innocently told me it's his fist and thumb.  Ohhhhhhh!!  HAHAHA!  Whew.  I thought I was going to have to call authorities!!

Enjoy your handmade gifts, Moms!!!
May your gifts bring a smile, even a laugh, to your day.
Happy Mother's Day!
