Remember this?

March 9th, 2012 · 3 Comments

Remember when I posted this?  Cause I thought someone in my office was screwing with me. I just noticed this today: I guess someone else was having trouble figuring out which was decaf and which was regular.

Finding a New Normal

March 7th, 2012 · 6 Comments

I’ve not been doing a very good job of writing in my blog.  I have all kinds of excuses but I’ve been floundering around trying to find our new normal. You see my husband, after spending most of the last 17 years staying at home taking care of our kids (with a few years of […]

David and I have been watching the Netflix original series, Lilyhammer. The show is about an American Mafia guy who agrees to testify against his old gang in exchange for witness protection and relocation.  He choses Lilyhammer, Norway having seen in while watching the Olympics.  My husband tells me the star, Steven Van Zandt was […]

Random Thoughts

February 13th, 2012 · 3 Comments

Last week the BoyChild had a social studies project due.  My husband and I have four degrees between us (2 each) and WE weren’t entirely sure what the project called for.  We made the BoyChild do most of the work, but with us telling him what to do, i.e. “google the President and download a picture.”  […]

We took the plunge

February 3rd, 2012 · 7 Comments

Yesterday I called the cable company and cancelled my cable and my home land-line. We did it. We took that plunge. We’ve been talking about it for awhile. I’ve been an advocate of getting rid of the land-line for a long time.  David wasn’t.  We’d had that telephone number for a very long time.  More […]

Brown Rice

February 2nd, 2012 · 6 Comments

I’ve kind of fallen off the WW Wagon. The holidays are hard.  They start with Halloween and then there’s that long slog through Thanksgiving, Christmas and then shooting out of the tube a fat mess over New Years.  Not great imagery but you get my drift. My first week back (I didn’t go for a […]

It’s been a long rough week

January 19th, 2012 · 4 Comments

It’s been a long rough week. It’s only Thursday but I’ve woken up every day this week thinking, “is it Saturday yet?” Two teenagers have committed sucide recently.  One was 14 and the other was 16.  I only have tenuous connections to them if you could even call it a connection at all, I didn’t […]

I never did show you my new boots

January 16th, 2012 · 1 Comment

I just realized I never did show you my new boots. This is them: That’s me on the right. On the left is my daughter’s high heels. I know the picture doesn’t do them justice.  Here is a link to the Naturalizer web page where I bought them. I *LOVE* them and wear them every […]

One of those weeks

January 13th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Man this has been one of those weeks. I’ve been going to PT two to three times a week and getting injections in my knee once a week.  It is time consuming but the swelling has gone down which was the goal.  I’ve also not been running as much which might account for the swelling […]

Rules to Live By

December 31st, 2011 · 1 Comment

I’m looking for Rules To Live By for an article I’m thinking about doing for the State Bar Publication.  Sort of the “never ask a woman when her baby is due unless she herself has told you she is pregnant becuase you have about a 50/50 chance she’ll respond, “I’m not pregnant, I’m just fat.” […]
