From the Author:

I laughed out loud when I read this book - oh, wait, I'm the author. Well, I laughed out loud while I was writing it, although I wasn't always laughing when the events I wrote about were happening!

From the Back Cover:

When you schedule home repairs, does your service man arrive promptly?
Do your children like to clean their rooms?
Does your spouse brag about your chicken cordon bleu?
If you answered "yes" to all of these questions, perhaps this isn't the book for you. If, on the other hand, you can't get a repairman to show up on time, which is okay because you need to shovel a path through the kids' rooms, and the closest thing to gourmet you've ever made says, "peel back cover and heat," Gayle Carline feels your pain.
As a fan of Erma Bombeck, she used to content herself with telling funny stories about her life to her friends and family, while her husband rolled his eyes and her son hid in embarrassment. But, like Erma, she dreamed of more...
In 2005, her dream came true - she got a weekly newspaper column, where she could share her stories with readers in her Placentia community and beyond. Her husband has added a heavy sigh to the eye roll, and her son keeps asking to join the Witness Protection Program, but her readers love her, so life couldn't be merrier.
How did she do it? By asking herself, what would Erma do?
