Spring Sprung

Whether we realized it or not, Spring has sprung. It brings a lift in the spirits, a desire to attack and air the house, and projects. The house smells of delicious lemon and lavender cleaning products.  I depend daily on: Method Kitchen Hand Wash (lemongrass),   Williams-Sonoma Meyer Lemon Dish Soap (my mother so loved […]

Forget Campers

I’ve woken up early this morning. I blame my tiny bladder. Laid in bed waiting for sleep to return, but that was a hopeless cause. Drank many sips of water hoping to eradicate the feeling that my innards were as dry as a saltine cracker. Gave up on sleep, dragged myself out of oven-temperature covers […]

Doozy of a Day

Oof. Today.  Was.  A.  Doozy. There was nothing special in particular . . . Minion played a lot, slept a little.  I think he must be going through a growth spurt because there was a constant sense of underlying fuss really close to his surface.  We were just barely fending it off through most of […]

Of Choirs and Carpets

I am having a devil of a time deciding on carpet. I could bore you to tears . . . so, simply.  I have always lived on a beige carpet.  I have never really had much say in that matter. For Christmas, my big surprise was Knobby telling me we were going to carpet the […]

September 5


Irked. I know that to all you every-weekday-workers with your 9-to-5’s will think this is a bit silly. But. I am an introvert.  I am a homebody.  If I have just ONE appointment on my week’s calendar, that’s a day I either dread or simply don’t look forward to . . . and after that’s […]

Neverending House Projects

I am all over the place with house projects right now. Mimi’s bedroom has long been the storage space.  All the leftovers and things to catalogue have been sitting in there, and slowly the pile dwindled until it was pushed into JUST the closet (and it is just a little closet, since this house was […]

Slap Myself

There are too many tabs open. In Chrome here on my desktop, in Safari on my iPad. There are too many things piled on my desk. Piles of things I put here to keep reminding myself these were things I needed to accomplish, check on, whatever. There are too many projects I am so eager […]

Doctors Appointment and Random Houses

I have this annoying sinus headache.  It’s more of an ache on my head than a headache. Take your tube of lipgloss, push it into the arch between your eyebrow and your nose, and that’s how it feels. Sinus pressure. Yay. —- Went to the pediatric urologist today . . . an appointment I’d been […]

Pleased as Punch

*Yawn* Knobby has been on vacation for nearly two weeks now.  Lots of little house improvements have been made. House has been automated.  He’s made an app for our phones which can turn lights on and off, uses Sonos habits and other tricks via the Nest thermostats.  Replaced light switches but we can’t really see […]

Common Sense: The New National Deficit

Pixy needs a martini. I went out today.  On my own. That’s probably nothing to most of you.  But . . . I don’t like going out.  I like staying home.  I like staying home for more than a week at a time, if possible.  I like WALLOWING in the staying at home. And I […]
