    New Name, New Design…Older Me

    It’s been a LONG time since I have posted. Partly because 2022 was a shit-show. And 2021. And 2020, if we’re gonna be honest. The other reason is because Momma On The Rocks has been held together by bubble gum, pipe cleaners, and a whole lot of hope for far too long now. Unfortunately, I’d been quoted big money to fix it, and while I really, really intended to get it updated – I just couldn’t find the bandwidth to do it. Time got…lets just say it REALLY got away from me. I am not technically minded and trying to fix the website broke a friend who has skills. We…

    Gift Ideas for your Traveling Guy

    This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertisers. Product was provided for client review; however all opinions are mine alone. #WorldsSmartestToothbrush #PhilipsSonicare #OprahsFavoriteThings #CollectiveBias If your husband is like mine, he is notoriously difficult to buy for. I think his favorite gift I’ve ever got for him is when I paid for the annual fee on his Platinum American Express card! Because he travels so often, he doesn’t want a bunch of junk weighing him down. My guy is a bit of a minimalist: he isn’t one for the latest trends, and while he appreciates great technology, he is not a tech geek (like me). He…

    Be Careful With Your Donkey

    When you open an email from my Dad, you’re never sure what you’re going to get…. A clever joke? A very off-color joke? Photos of baby animals hugging? A cool video of just about anything? Sometimes, I get something seemingly light-hearted and silly…but one that creeps up on you and makes me think….this is one such joke. Bear with me here… An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked. As they went along, they passed some people who remarked “What a shame, the old man is walking and the boy is riding!”  The man and…

    To be a Princess…

    My lovely daughter is a princess fanatic. Her favorite princess is (now) Rapunzel, followed very closely with her long-time favorite, Ariel.  She has nearly all the dresses. All the movies. She can talk endlessly on all things princessy. When she grows up, she wants to be a princess…or a veterinarian. Or a Princess Veterinarian. So when Kathy at Mama’s Losin’ It  suggested the prompt “If you had to choose a Disney princess to live the rest of your life as…which princess would you choose and why?”, I knew who I would be (because I’ve had this conversation with Pea before): I would be Belle. And here is why: She’s pretty.…

    Welcome to Loserville

    Can you see it? The big “L” on my forehead?   It is there because yesterday THIS was delivered to me (cue heavenly choir of cherubs singing):       Yes. It is what you think it is.   It is a cordless electric sweeper.  I know I mentioned that I was getting one in a prior post, but I’m just that excited about getting it that I had to share. (I know you care.) I am ecstatic. I am doing my happy dance. I know, its sad.   I’m a bit of a neat freak, you see. (I think I’ve mentioned this, too…) And with the door opening and…
