Nothing Like an Italian Family

Note to self: If I want to be humiliated in public, there is an aisle in Toy 'R Us dedicated for hard headed grandmothers and dramatic aunts. I quickly figured out that by taking the baby buggy and casually walking around the store, no one would ever know that I have genetic ties to the two wildly gesturing, screaming Italian women in aisle 4. Who knew that buying a baby bathtub required a degree in aerodynamics? Learn something new everyday.

Venturing Into the World of Blogging

Greetings Fellow Bloggers!

Well, I have finally done it...I have entered the 21st century. The phenomenon of blogging has spread like wild fire and I can no longer cower and resist this powerful urge to “blog.” This blog does not have a single topic of discussion. It is simply my musings on life, books, movies, current events, and whatever else strikes my fancy. I hope you enjoy and look forward to hearing what you think!
