Daisy, Daisy, Give me your answer do

I think we all knew it wouldn’t be long before I cut into another swapped sheet, am I right? That’s ok. My predictability is part of my charm. At least, that’s what I tell myself. This “pink & orange daisies on green” sheet caught my eye right away when it arrived. I love it! It […]

Don’t hate me because I’m prolific

Remember those “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful” ads? I remembered the phrase, but couldn’t for the life of me remember the product. (It was Pantene. Gotta love google.) It amuses me that advertisements can be so effective at getting into your brain that you’ll remember their taglines twenty years after the fact, but at […]

Blogging under the influence

Under the influence of TV, that is. I put it on simply to break up the silence, but to my surprise, Saturday Night Live is actually funny tonight. I haven’t been able to relegate it to the background like I’d planned. Maybe it’s because of where I am in my own life at this particular […]

This is not one of those times

Some days when the boys are home from school, I get all domestic and get in the mood to take care of laundry, clean up the kitchen, maybe catch up on some business email. This is not one of those days. When it became clear to me that the guys were hunkering down for a […]

Color me impressed

  I had no idea the color would be so vibrant!  I’m guessing that’s what happens when you actually follow the instructions that comes with the dye . All of my previous experience with dye has been pretty much a matter of throwing the garments in a dye bucket, swirling it around now and then, […]

I love it when he rips his pants

Yep, another knee blown out, another skirt for me. Woo hoo! Neil came home from Capclave Sunday night with the news that he’d worn through the knee on another pair of pants. I’m sorry for his wardrobe’s loss, but I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t good news for my wardrobe. I know I […]
