Hello, It’s me…Lisa

Little and Big Xmas 2015

So you may wonder why I’m here blogging, sharing my spiel? Truth is, I started blogging because it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than therapy. And that makes you, dear readers, my therapists. By the powers vested in me, please follow, share and leave your comments, good and bad. Let’s kibitz?

I don’t want to kvetch (a lot), but dreck happens, often. And that’s okay. I am here on the planet to learn and grow daily. So what if we share a little growing pains?
Armed with my keypad, camera and some words, hopefully strung together fairly well, I can fill you in on what goes on, while also working on this ‘life in progress’ journey we all seem to be taking. Wouldn’t it be nice, if maybe we could all laugh, cry, see some commonalities, embrace some differences and inspire each other to keep going?
My muses? None other than my crazy, zany, beautiful (inside and out) and lovable family. That includes me, the Mrs.,Family 1-1-2016 BHI Little and Big. Yes, we are two mommas with two little girls. Trials, tribulations, parenting, working, aging and surviving, while food shopping, doing laundry, making meals, cleaning up and trying to save the planet.
Sometimes I’ll offer up little nuggets to nosh on, and sometimes a bit more of a tirade about whatever may have my kishkas in an uproar. I figure, this blog will see me, us, through the ups and downs of the hand(s) we’ve been dealt. Chronic pain, major life changes, moves, losses, gains, wins, ballet recitals, tooth fairies, friends, foes, fears, tsuris, yadda, yadda…
I blog because…
  • my girls may someday look back and want to see who ‘Mommy’ was as a person, through their adult eyes
  • I want to remember every (okay, most) beautiful moment of their childhood that is priceless and filled with such naches
  • every moment isn’t pretty–sometimes it’s messy and fehklempt, and I want those memories too
  • other parents out in the ether must know what to do when…? and share with me
  • for some crazy reason, I am channeling great Aunt Frieda with all of this Yiddish
  • I have funny thoughts, and I write them down, in the hopes that you (my therapists) may smile or chuckle over them tooblogger mommy
  • my family, my little mishpocheh and my extended and chosen peeps, need to know how very much I love them and feel loved by them
  • life with two kids, work, school and all the other mishegas, doesn’t always allow for adequate ‘tawk-time’ with the Mrs., or anyone else for that matter
  • ahhh, the Mrs., whenever I see her, my heart still skips a beat
  • every night, Little cries out during bedtime that she is hungry
  • Canada looks very good in the event of a Trump inauguration, and we will need to know where to send Little and Big to school
  • have I got stories to tell. Oy vey!

So, you’ll join me? What, you have something better to do? Nu?

BTW, I’m the one with the gray hair in the pic.

  1. I liked reading your introduction Lisa 🙂

    Are those words from German in between?

    I couldn’t get some of them, sorry!

    I wish you all the best.



  2. It’s good to meet you Lisa, welcome to WordPress. Your introduction sounds like you are a very busy gal that’s as it should be in this world I guess, a idle mind is the Devil’s playground or something. He won’t find room to play around in your head, I can see that.
    Thanks for the visit to my blog and I will be back here to visit you again and do some more reading.
    All I can say for now is.


  3. A fun intro! Fortunately, I have a Yiddish dictionary. My wife had lived in North Jersey before moving to Louisiana to marry me, and she knew a lot of Yiddish. And I’m a fan of Weird Al! LOL


    1. Yiddish just makes things so much meatier and robust! I found my old Aunt Frieda hidden deep inside me–never had a clue what she was saying when I visited her growing up. Obviously, something stuck.
      Thanks for following. I am looking forward to your work as well.

  4. Oy vey! Great about spiel, and I look forward to reading more about yourself and your lovely family 🙂 Canada does seem like a viable option in the event of a Trump success. (Oh no….please, no, no, no, no….)

  6. Hi Lisa. Sorry, I am still confused. I couldn’t spot anyone with grey hair at all. I just saw three kids with a beautiful lady who looks like she is their mom. Is that you? 🙂
    Thanks for the follow.


Talk to me! Please? You want some cake?
