It’s Not A Floater
Every year since we got married, it’s been the same thing: my husband forgets Valentine’s Day. In past years, this has made me mad, sad and exasperated – especially during those early years. He was working long hours, building his company and I was working hard as a stay-at-home mother. It was exhausting. What little…
Thanks for another great year!
Well, SNORKers, as we bid farewell to 2014, I’d like to take this time to thank you for subscribing to SNORK. Your support and comments are always welcomed and appreciated. Each year, the helper monkeys at WordPress.com prepare an annual report for SNORK and I want to share some of those statistics with you now. Between WordPress.com, Twitter and Facebook, SNORK has…
SNORK wishes you the sort of holiday that makes you blow eggnog through both your nostrils (in a good way!). Merry Christmas!
Give Them Love
For many, the holidays are a time of rejoicing, of abundance, and of feasting. But it can be the most difficult time of the year for many others. This SNORK is a public service announcement, dedicated to shining a light on a group of people who are often mocked, marginalized, and misunderstood. I am, of…
Believing is Believing
“Aha! I knew it!” I could hear my daughter’s squeaky little voice coming through her bedroom door. She was maybe about 7-years-old at the time.

The holidays are just around the corner, and for many of us, they involve traveling. Will you be bunking at someone’s home? Are you wondering if you need a refresher course on houseguest etiquette? Well, today’s your lucky day! Not only do I travel quite a bit, I’m also an innkeeper of sorts, since my…
She has always been one surprise after another… For legitimate reasons, we believed a second child was not in the cards for us. So imagine our surprise when we were dealt a miracle! I was certain we would have another boy, just like our first, with jet-black hair and rich olive skin. On delivery day,…
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
SNORK is devoted to humor but amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is certainly no laughing matter. ALS (more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) is a progressive degeneration of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Its effects are devastating and there is no known cure. So, how did such a serious subject wind up here on…
Fluffy Got A Brazilian
Throughout history, hair has gotten a lot of attention. Entire books have been devoted to the subject, it is the stuff of legends and lore (Lady Godiva or Samson, anyone?) and pretty much every American parent has made a big deal of their child’s first haircut. My own daughter’s first trim was at the hands…
