Fumbling towards Ecstacy – and standing still.

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

Life is…. life, these days. Fun, fulfilling. But I feel the need for deeper connections with humans, these days. More of them. And, I suppose, within my own family. Yet at the same time, lethargy has set in. Day in, day out. For me, maybe this is a “con” of the internet. I have dear […]

No room to move

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Such a busy weekend. We just had bamboo floors installed in the living room and dining room, after ripping out all the carpet ourselves. White carpet in a dining room. Who does that? Along with this is the obligatory moving around of furniture, and getting rid of things we don’t use, or giving them a […]

Enter Summer

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

It’s raining tonight. It’s a nice, cozy rain. We went to a birthday party earlier for one of Derek’s friends and it was a good time, good food and friends. There was a point were most of the kids were running in crazy circles around the house, faster and faster and louder, and eventually, two […]

Emptying out.

I sold the glider chair today. The one I sat in with Derek the first days of his life in the world,all the way up until the day before we put his big boy bed that we built by hand into his room. That was Memorial Day weekend. It went to a guy for his […]

Rainy Holiday weekend.

Well, I guess it is not the weekend yet. Derek is upstairs and I am trying to get him dressed to go swimming, but he is being very dawdly today. I fear this will end in a freakout when it is too late to go swimming, but he has to learn to get dressed at […]

Screaming kid and a 3″+ slug on my kitchen counter. Rock star start to the day. At least the sun is out and I am about to brew coffee.

Derek is at school. Coffee is brewed. I will now sit outside and drink it in the sun for awhile. Then to work, packing up orders, then bikram yoga in a couple hours. But right now…. sun and coffee.

Need to make an online journal entry of substance. I need to make the time to do it. How did my days get so busy, so full, so hectic? Web stuff, straw stuff, preschool stuff, little boy stuff, house stuff, preschool auction stuff, health stuff, DLJ stuff. Well, I must get back to the STUFF. […]

Buried in Fiberglass Snow

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Our insulation was sucking pretty hard, so we went ’round, got estimates and recommendations, and then I made the appt. Yesterday, in the afternoon, they called to confirm coming today at 8 am. WHA? So we got everything out of the attic. Not that much stuff compared to most people, probably, but the camping gear, […]

A random list:

-Simon LeBon really kinda goes overboard when he decides to have a Twitter session, makes me page just a blur of blue eyes. -Lots of WordPress messing around right now. Come the New Year it will be time to get back into Joomla, methinks, for other projects. I still kinda like Drupal *wistful* -Derek and […]
