From the Back Cover

Jane is married to Rick Still, who she believes has the distinction of being the only man in history brave enough to give her earwax candles for her birthday. They had six children in eight years, and while her children were growing up, she discovered she had a great sense of humor. At least that was her take. Rick once said to her, "Honey, you know all those real corny things you say all the time? Who ever thought you could make money at it?" Her son Adam once told her, "Mom could you please stop telling jokes to my friends? It's really embarrassing." One of Jane's philosophies is, "You're not doing your job unless your children are worried about being seen in public with you."

My thoughts:

This book is small, small enough to fit in my purse so I could read while waiting- for the doctor, for Brandi at soccer practice, the bell to ring while subbing in physics because let's be real here- Me teaching physics??? Besides being small, the stories in the book are short enough that I could finish one and not be left hanging when I have to move on to my next activity.

I liked this book. Jane has a way of taking everyday experiences and seeing the humorous aspect to them, like the time her washer went crazy and she had to call her husband home to help her stop the resulting flood. To most of us it would be a disaster, and it may have been, but just think Lucille Ball and you can only imagine the way Jane managed. Too funny.
