I just got back from BlogHer last weekend and it was a lot of fun. I got some really cool things and I will tell you about it soon. And what does that include? Some really great recipes from places like Hillshire Farms, Knorr, and others. I think I may even have a recipe or […]

About this time last week, I was sitting in my friend Theresa’s kitchen, drinking wine, talking, laughing, eating and learning. Wait, what? Yes, learning. And I liked it. Before you ask yourself what kind of freak I am, wait a minute. I’ll explain. I love food. Always have. But as an adult, I really learned […]

When I worked outside of the home, I was so much more organized. Maybe it was because I had to do be in order to get anything done. Or it could have been because I didn’t have a toddler running around underfoot, demanding attention. Those pesky kids, I swear. Always wanting something. You’d think that […]

Each evening, my living room looks like a bomb went off in it. We don’t have much of a dining room, so my son’s high chair is next to the couch. And he’s in the loves-to-throw-food stage. Kix. Cheerios. Toast. Various veggies. They’re all over the place. The kid has some range. For quick cleanups, […]

I’m still dealing with the clutter demon. When you live in a small place, you have to be brutal in culling your possessions. That’s something I haven’t been doing. Sentimentality has not been my friend. I like to keep mementos reminding me of good times, happy things, and people I love. But when you’re so […]

Gadgets can be a lot of fun. Isn’t it cool to find something new? But some gadgets, while nice, are really just unitaskers. What’s a unitasker? It’s an item that only performs one function. That’s it. Beyond that one small purpose, it’s really useless. Admittedly, we all probably have some things that are suited to […]

We’re still rearranging furniture in these here parts. And still not happy with the results. Basically, we have too much furniture for this place. Since there’s so little storage, you need other storage. And it doesn’t help that we don’t have a separate office area and are stuck with my desk in the living room. […]

Well, the meal went pretty well. I was scrambling at the end, trying to keep everything warm while I finished the gravy & rolls. But it turned out okay. Everything was hot except the carrots, which were a little cooler than I would like. But everything else was good. The turkey was awesome. The breast […]

I have to tell you, I am a house cleaning, desk clearing, laundry washing, hard working, multi-tasking MOFO this week. And today, I just could not sit down. I kept thinking of “one more thing” to do. I knew if I sat down that’d be it for the day. So I kept going from thing […]
