Store of Deception

Oh dear, cheap Costco
Everything is a deal
Yet I spend so much

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

Stitches in his chin
This time an even dozen
New hobby needed

Sunday, February 28, 2010

Not the best planning

Planned eggs and sausage
For our Sunday night dinner
Only had one egg

My Solemn Vow

I Swear Before You
No More Gray Grates on Stovetop
Nightmare to Keep Clean

Ode to Target Clinic

Cheaper and faster
The Target lady knows us
Once again it's strep

Only in Minnesota

Went walking today
Only in Minnesota
Walk dogs on the lake

I guess I can live without cable

No more cable shows
It is really quite amazing
How much I now read

Late night out

Early nights before
Would be home before midnight
Now ten seems quite late

I bet girls don't give Spiderman

School V-Day exchange
I wonder if he'll like it
If he gets Barbie

Monday, February 8, 2010


It's white once again
Snow falls and falls without end
Why do I live here?

Time to move on

Superbowl Sunday
Not as into it this year
Yes, I'm still sulking

Friday, February 5, 2010

So there

Punxatawny Phil
Saw six more weeks of winter
Groundhog soup sounds good

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

Growing, growing, growing

Growing like a weed
It seems the pants just fit fine
Now ankles peek out

Selective hearing

The gym calls for me
But its voice is lost to me
Brownies call louder

Friday, January 29, 2010

What do you think the temp is

Oh Minnesota
It's cold cold cold cold cold cold
Not a winter girl

Farewell football

Sundays are now free
Done with football forever
Until next season

Monday, January 25, 2010

I don't think so

When a six year old
Asks to use a pocket knife
Consider wisely

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Each night it echoes
This sound not soothing at all
The man and cat snore

Thursday, January 21, 2010

The kid is with Gram
My husband and I alone
You guessed it, Netflix

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

I'm the picture of optimism

Time for a job hunt
Prettied up the resume
May as well hunt snipe

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Happy, happy, happy

Minnesota wins
Now on to the Big Easy
My hopes are cautious

Saturday, January 16, 2010

Physics Remembered

Mass and Momentum
Sledding, these forces combine
Wipe out on the hill

Friday, January 15, 2010

Ode to Bakugan

Little Bakugan
Rolling all over the place
The kid is happy

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

The spoiled feline
Sprawls his body in the sun
Always where I walk

The Dustbunny Tales

Dustbunnies move in
Multiplying Rapidly
Netflix calls my name

Monday, January 11, 2010

I'd lose my head...

Bought some groceries
Then I lost some groceries
MENSA does not call

Sunday, January 10, 2010

I know tomorrow already

But I'm not tired
The awake kid claims tonight
He snores at sunrise

A Space Discovered

Bye bye Christmas tree
Away for another year
Space for more clutter

Welcome to blogku
Home of really bad haiku
Do not have to rhyme
