Wherein I get my hair chopped and tell you a little bit about some of the crafty work I have in progress.continue reading "Thursday"
Every year at this time, I take a look at our diet and think about reducing the amount of processed foods we consume. In some ways, the guidelines we now have to follow for a heart-healthy diet have made whole(er) foods meal-planning even more challenging.continue reading "The butter dilemma"
I had a little good, clean (messy) fun today. It started on Twitter, as all good things do, when Stacey said this: Hair chalk is a trend? I didn’t even know it existed! I feel so behind, sometimes… — Stacey Trock (@FreshStitches) February 28, 2013 And, well, I didn’t know it existed either, and I [...]continue reading "Fun with chalk"
I’ve been kind of blah lately. My house is messier than I want it to be, which makes me unhappy. But then I feel too disheartened about it to clean it up. And when I let it get bad, I feel guilty, and when I feel guilty, I feel blah. And I don’t feel like leaving [...]continue reading "Cutting off the blahs"
Ok, who wants to help me be a little less winter-fashion-inept? I am reasonably comfortable dressing myself in the warmer months, or pulling together an outfit around a pair of jeans, but in the winter, anything not jeans-based throws me for a loop. I always end up feeling like I’ve chosen the wrong footwear and [...]continue reading "Fashion victim"

I also got the urge to treat the birthday boy to a night out. I dropped the kids off at my in-laws’ house, booked us a nice hotel [...]continue reading "Wife of a 45-year-old"

But maybe you are waiting for me to process your Polka Dot Creations order. Or maybe you’ve emailed me a question that I have not yet responded to. [...]continue reading "Victim of the ick? Hope not."
…it pours. Finally getting over my sore neck issues, and now I have my son’s cold (but with a twist – I was lucky enough to get a fever and a headache, too). Throw in a little PMS just for kicks, and well, it’s been a fun few days over here. Yesterday I was good [...]continue reading "When it rains…"
Quite literally. I spent Monday feeling worse and worse, Monday night being sick, Tuesday being feverish, nauseous, and headachey, and today I seem to be left mostly with the headache and a little dizziness. I’m not ready for “real food” quite yet, so until then it’s Saltines for breakfast. Oh! There is so much to [...]continue reading "Spring Fever"
Over the course of this past autumn, I swore off shampoo, deodorant, and moisturizer. I know. Either you’ve done this before yourself and are thinking “good for you” or you’ve never done it and are thinking I’m crazy (not to mention stinky). Well, maybe I am a little bit crazy, but I smell just [...]continue reading "Body Powder Gift Set"
