I get the bad-a$$ badge after all!

I went to bed last night, absolutely decided that I wasn't going to run in the Turkey Dash this morning. I went to bed late, and I didn5k.'t set an alarm. I woke up at 7:00 and thought, "Oh, no. Not happening." I went back to sleep. I... Read more

Tomorrow my girls and I are signed up to do a 5k "turkey dash" in the morning. Erin and I did this particular 5k last Thanksgiving with our friends Karla and Anil. But last year Thanksgiving morning was about 45 degrees and sunny. This yea... Read more

Collapsing from relief

We got the word on Rebecca's MRI today. There is no sign of her tumor returning. This means that she can proceed to chemotherapy. It's not a light at the end of the tunnel yet, but it means there is at least a tunnel. The relief I feel is a... Read more

Not aimed at anyone here, just a rant

I don't know exactly what it is about today, but my FB page is flooded with slacktivism pictures asking that I "support cancer victims" by linking to some photo for today. As someone who cancer is affecting deeply at this moment, someone whose h... Read more

Cancer sucker-punches you

I think I'm doing okay with everything, and then the strangest things set me off. As I was searching for the largest possible turkey I could find, a woman cordially asked for how many people I was cooking Thanksgiving dinner. I almost couldn't m... Read more

We have the report on Shasta's breed. Just to remind you, this is what Shasta looks like. She's also tiny--15 pounds, and the tops of her ears just come to my knees: A... Read more

Last post about cleaning...probably

Saturday, November 16, 2013      8 comments

I ran errands yesterday while the cleaning crew was here, because I didn't want to watch the progress. I wanted the before-and-after effect. I wanted the Cleaning Fairies to have come. I was delighted with the results. It is all so very won... Read more

Cleaning progress

Friday, November 15, 2013      7 comments

I spent yesterday slavishly decluttering--because what's the point of a clean house if it's still full of junk? Now my entire upstairs is decluttered--on the surface, at least. Some of the closets and cabinets still need some work. But a girl ca... Read more

Spring cleaning, 6 months late

Thursday, November 14, 2013      9 comments

For my birthday last April, I asked hubby to have someone come in and really deep clean the house. That's finally happening tomorrow. Which means today I get to spend running around like a madwoman, decluttering the place. Right now, it's a... Read more

Last night I had a craving for popcorn. Now, I have not made popcorn in over a year, and Erin may have had some Pop Secret now and then, but not in the last six months. So I dismissed the craving as unachievable and settled in to watch M... Read more

We get our first basket from our CSA this Thursday. That means a lot more vegetables will be coming into my house, and will continue to come into my house throughout the winter. For those who don't know, CSA stands for Community Supported Agricu... Read more

Insomnia makes us do weird things

Wednesday, October 30, 2013      5 comments

I can tell that I've been watching too much classic, black & white Doctor Who. I just got up to make myself some tea and babbled out, "This unit requires stimulation to continue functioning under sleep deprivation stress. Re-caffeinate! Re-caffe... Read more

Signs that I am getting back in balance

Wednesday, October 23, 2013      10 comments

Yesterday I had a lot of work to do, but not a screaming deadline. So I took an hour to make a dent in the mess that is my sewing space. I cleared off all the junk that had just kind of landed in that space, and put everything away. I'm going to... Read more

Nostalgia for the kindest man I never met

My husband sent me a link today to a gif on Boing Boing that he proclaimed to be "The Coolest GIF of the Day." I'm linking it here. Feel free to take a moment to peek at it. I'll wait. boingboing.net/2013/10/2

Just a nice weekend

Monday, October 21, 2013      7 comments

So, DH's dad was here to visit this weekend, and we spent Saturday at Stan Hywet Hall. We love this place, because in addition to the house they have beautiful gardens, and it's just fun to walk around in them. But not Saturday, because it was P... Read more
