Shut Your Pie Hole…I’ve Been Busy

I’ve been away from the blog for awhile. You think it’s because I haven’t anything to write about? You shut your mouth. I have plenty. Here are snippets:

My reign as HRH Princess ended when one little grandson prince was born this September. It’s pretty clear The Husband has moved on to a new love…

The new king
My competition is not big but he’s formidable

My reign as nagging mother spouting, “Do something meaningful with your life and marry your best friend”, is over…

My newest daughter in law
Three boys, all married angels. My work is done.

I continue to fight the urge to unfriend anyone who uses this emoji: 🤣. I really can’t stand that guy. 

I took a test to match my personality to a country. I got Iceland where there’s a Penis Museum and no mosquitoes! And I say, “Förum!” (which means “Let’s go” to my people).

I got Iceland?
Who else got Iceland? Jeez.

 Our house in Arizona (aka The Casa) has been undergoing renovations for six years.. wait. The Husband just confirmed it has been just six months. We are living behind a plastic shield of shame thus my normally chipper Icelandic attitude is descending rapidly into an episode of Survivor. Or Donner Pass. Y’all, not to put too fine a point on it but we don’t even have an ice maker right now.Devil aka Tommy Lives in Fear

Devil, whom I now call Tommy (see above), can’t stand the construction chaos which has caused his toilet paper demolishing habit to spike to three rolls per week. One day we were gone for 30 seconds and he ate 100 corn tortillas. Someone call Ripley’s. He’s very fragile right now with the threat of Donner Pass, me being Icelandic and all that.

Just try to imagine the inside
Why Devil eats toilet paper

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: People keep butt calling me because my A name puts me first in their phone so I shan’t be taking your calls anymore. I’m talking to you Megan and Leighton. You, too, Mother.

Speaking of Mom. Last year in September she had two strokes back to back. We weren’t sure if she would move into long term care or assisted living. Well this year…

My 91 year old mom
She’s so stunning

A Pierman Sister in Paris blog is readying for a shot in the arm when we go for our annual Paris trip next February with not one, not two, but three sisters in tow. These teddy bears better still be hanging out or I am going to be sick! Förum!

THIS is happening in Paris RIGHT NOW!!
Teddy Bear Invasion à Paris!

That’s it. And that’s a lot. Stop telling people that I’ve lost my mojo. If you need me I’ll be behind a plastic shield of shame somewhere in Carefree, Arizona—a less appropriate town name could not exist right now—where I’ll be picking up Devil’s toilet paper and ignoring all your butt calls and learning more about my people, the Icelanders..  🤣🤣🤣


  1. You crack me up! Seriously, though, you have my sympathy if you’ve been in remodeling mode for six months. Six weeks of kitchen and bathroom remodeling just about did me in in 2015. I still have flashbacks. Talk about not getting any sleep!

    1. Yesterday I yelled at the contractor because I haven’t had hot water in the bathroom for five weeks. Weird thing is that it’s not a room under construction and there’s hot water everywhere else! He’s infiltrating my dreams now. I’m likely to have PTSD. We need a support group.


  2. Welcome back, Alison. All your news are fantastic. Congratulations on the birth of your grandson and well done to your mum for recovering so well from her strokes last year. The trip to Paris sounds brilliant, teddy bears or not: Forum to you too. 👍
    I am afraid to take that test in case the result gives me ‘Tierra de Fuego!😛

  3. Yo Icelander, living in Arizona and pining for Paris! I, too, have been a bad blogger due to business – as in busy-ness, not the commercial sort of business – but nothing like your busyness. I even planned to write a blog post about it, but now, of course, I can’t do it. It would be like plagiarizing.
    The new daughter-in-law is stunning and the grandchild is adorable. I say both of these honestly and with no jealousy or competition, because I hope it will be a very very long time before I post corresponding pictures from my life.
    So it is now Alison – 3 to Circumstance – 0. I am going to go find out what country I am – I figure it can’t be that hard to beat Iceland. I’ll let you know.
    (P.S. Have missed you, friend.)

    1. I wish there was a “love” button and not just a lame “like” button when I hear from you. Get to writing that busyness blog post. I want to see what you’ve been up to. I honestly pictured you veiled and in a perpetual state of mourning given the election season and all the mud slinging about. You really must take the quiz. Here’s hoping you get Iceland then we will confirm we are sisters from another mister. Cut and paste this link and report back.


    1. Hey, you! I have missed your posts! Where have you been? Thank you for stopping by my blog. My mom is so cute. 91! And yes, my new daughter in law is simply gorgeous. She’s also bright and kind and thoughtful. The whole package.


  4. Great post, Alison! Loved the reminder of Carefree – we lived in Scottsdale for awhile and I remember Surprise, too. Lots of great place names in AZ! Have a splendid holiday, or do the best you can as you renovate your home! 💕😊🎄

    1. Thank you so much. We are supposedly “four weeks out” so looks like I’ll be ringing in the new year with my contractor! I love the desert. Best decision we ever made was buying a home here. Happy holidays to you as well!

  5. Thanks for the chuckle, I absolutely adored this post. I had to resist the urge for THAT emoji to be pressed.

    What a busy time for you. Full of beautiful news especially your gorgeous grandson. Hope the work gets finished soon. Looking forward to reading more from you soon.
