Getting serious...

Abbey update:

I'm having trouble with access to my St.Blogs site, so I will be posting more serious stuff here, rather than all silly stuff. I have to get a tech in again to determine why I always have this problem. So, this site will be the understudy for the starring role at Abbey2, which means I better Catholic-it-up then.
Having said that, if you link to me at Abbey2 would you be so kind as to link to Abbey1 again? Thank you for your charity.

All about "Me" moms...


They tend to be rather concerned about their appearance.

Extreme thoughts...


Did you ever just want to beat the crap out of someone? For no reason?

Countdown to Mother's Day continues...


Moms who think their kids are ugly and evil. (They can be so judgemental.)

In the movie "The Anniversay" this mom had a son named Terry too.

Something from the poetry man...



I HAVE LIVED THIS WAY FOR YEARS AND DO NOT WISH TO CHANGE

I hope you'll forgive the black paint
on my windows,
the smell of cat litter
in the kitchen.
Guests complain sometimes
that my collection of Minoan cadavers spoils
their appetite, or that having the shower
in the living room creates too much moisture,
but I think you'll grow used to it
if we get to be friends.

Yes, it is kind of inconvenient
having the bed strapped to the ceiling,
but I've grown so accustomed to the view
of my Max Ernst carpet that I hardly think
I could sleep with gravity anymore.

Why thank you, it was a gift from my lover's husband
after our honeymoon in Cincinnati.
I do think
it goes well with the orange bedroom set, the burgundy curtain.
See, you're feeling quite at home already.
Don't be shy.
Help yourself to the jellyfish,
the goose down,
the chocolate-covered cotton balls.
