What I Know For Sure-26th Edition

1.  The new Village People commercial for pistachios is ridiculous. They spell out CRACK.  I saw it and wondered why that ad man wasn't fired. That's what we want all our kids doing... dancing and spelling out crack with their arms. What's next Meth? Total fail.

2. The Green Mountain pumpkin spice flavored K cups are the bomb dickery.

3. The candy corn and peanut combo is not allowed in my house this fall because it would become the candy corn and peanut cleanse. I am weak and my gut is now a light weight to sugar.

4. The holiday grapes(large red globe -Cerise from California) are my new candy corn. They are candtastic. They are probably sold out at the store. Follow me home. I'll hook ya up.

5. Caroline calls Cliff,  "Chiff" which led Abbie to calling him "Chiffarobe". Kinda seems appropriate since he is the size of a small chiffarobe.

6.  I have been trying to read a book for over a month. Every time I get going, I fall asleep. It is why I am a TV head. They make DVR's for that.

7. My washer died. My laptop died. I am waiting for the other shoe to drop die. I hope it isn't my DVR.

8. I realized I now need jeans with a flap on the pocket. I do tons of squats/lunges per week but I look like I have stood a bit to close to the fire and melted my arse. But, (shameless pun) my milkshake still brings one boy to the yard.

9. After living 30+ years just a few miles from a state forest I have decided to hike there.

10. Taking the Coopkeeper to hike on a unfamiliar trail just an hour before dusk without a cell phone or a note at home explaining where you are isn't the smartest thing to do. It encourages running, cursing and praying to get out before dark.

11. Caroline and I have watched The Chipmunks Meet The Wolfman close to 754 times.  She knows the lyrics and the choreography to the songs. I catch myself singing the songs when she is not around. I curse Netflix and my too-low-of-an-octive -to- do-the-Chipmunks-justice voice.

12. Maggie's salon did a cut-a-thon for the Angel Tree a couple of weeks ago. Annie and I donned elf hats. I insisted on playing Christmas tunes. I have been listening to Christmas music for a week before it and  every since. Sadly, I am not still wearing the hat.

13. I am an Instagram junkie. You can follow me @janiefox if ya want. I do more liking than posting.

14. Adam Levine was my boyfriend but I have deserted him for Richard Rawlings of Fast and Loud. It is a garage show...but trust me on this one. Man Pretty on the left. You're welcome.

15. My blog header needs a photo revamp. I am waiting for all my picture files to be restored by my Carbonite then I fully intend to change it up. Or I may watch The Voice and do nothing.

16. My main desire with the man residing in the White House after the election is that the man has the Spirit of God residing in him.

17. I am in love with the new show Nashville and I am not really a country music fan. However, I am a fan about TV country music.

18. When I am not listening to Christmas tunes this is one of my faves. It still makes me wanna dance.

19. Remember the bra quandry. I got fitted for a new bra by a professional. Well, someone who professed to work at the store.  I got 3. Every time I lift my arms the bra rises up over my breastuses. I am thinking the bra fitter could get a job as an ad man for pistaschios. I heard they are looking for good help.

20. I added a signature to my email so if you get one unsigned, no subject matter and it is a is a hack.


  1. I SO agree about #16. And Chiff is a most remarkable child! I've never seen one quite like him :)

    I'd love to see a before and after full-length photo, Janie. Are you at a maintaining level yet or still losing? I hit 135# and think I could be happy here. I definitely need to do some squats & lunges, etc. I have a lot of loose skin! And probably ought to get fitted by a TRUE professional.....

  2. You had me at Kelis.

    And girl? You be looking dang good!

    I love nonsensical nicknames.

    I should do a lunge sometime...

  3. agreed about the crack commercial hate it!!! ditto #16 and baby Cliff looks full grown with that mop of hair on his head he was born needing a haircut! So cute that one. Yeah I am hearing ya on all of it except the bra. I am stickin with my uniboob feel good ones. no more underwires. I told ya how to measure yourself it ain't rocket science.You didn't read that comment did ya. Yeah that's what I thought. I gotta enough booty for the whole world want some?

  4. Chiffarobe is ADORABLE! What a head of hair on that boy!!!! Where do you get your energy? I would love to bottle some and start chugging, Lord knows I could use to "need" new jeans - lol!


  5. I'm so glad you're alive and well! You were missed!

  6. I have a grape prob, too. But I prefer the huge, seedless green ones.

  7. I know you have a life but boy I sure miss it when you are gone! Your post makes my day!

  8. #17, I KNEW it! I'm not a huge country fan either, but this show has grabbed me. I love it almost as much as I love the hair on little Elvis, nope, Chiff, sorry. I gave up on the voice after blind auditions, can't take the judges banter, but will tune in for finale, right now torturing myself with X-factor, which is better than I thought it would be. Mainly I stare at Britney and wonder, what is she really feeling, that poor girl? White House - . Don't know what to say anymore. Better to keep my thoughts to myself and debate husband. Miss you when you are out and around with your family, glad you are back posting, but da** woman, you look good. Yes, get some new pictures up - you and Annie are my inspirations should I ever get my head together and act upon them! Ann

  9. And that is why we love you. Hilarious !!

    Thanks, I needed that.


  10. Love that baby hair! And music!!! And your lists. Thanks for keepin all my needs met.

  11. Lookin' like Annie's sister, mama. Glad you're back. And when you have a that baby's face for me! Yum!!

  12. "Lunges and squats" - you should be reported for that kind of talk! Gesh!!!

  13. Thank you for including that song in this post- I had never heard it and it was exactly what I NEEDED to hear today! You look fabulous and I'm glad that all is well with you and the fan!

  14. Oh brother- that was supposed to say "fam"!

  15. gurrrlllll...i'm a first timer over here via FPFG and i'm so glad i popped over!
    pretty sure i'll be giggling about this for a while. :)

    nice to meet ya!

  16. I guess you posted this while we were hunkered down with no power following Hurricane Sandy. Just catching up.

    The picture of you in that elf hat makes me giggle way down to my toes. Listening to Christmas music as I type. Ho-ho-ho!

    And dried mango is my crack.


Thanks for reading my blather. I read every comment. They make my heart happy!
