January was a minimalist month for me. I took on a challenge with a small Facebook group to start a minimalist demolition of our homes. We tackled closets, pantries, and our very souls. I’m only sort of kidding. The idea is behind a movement to only have what you need and donate or throw out … [Read more…]
You’ve heard the ancient saying ‘people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.’ I’ll be the first to admit that as soon as I hear that oft repeated line that I laugh. I just imagine people staring at you as you go to the bathroom through several glass walls. So you’re kind of distorted … [Read more…]

All those ‘at least I didn’t get sick’ comments from the winter have caught up to me. We have late winter colds. We went to a library event the other day and one of the pre-K kids was coughing and sneezing. She had bags under her eyes, well let’s just say they were jumbo suitcases. … [Read more…]

Is it too soon for Christmas? Every year items appear in stores a bit sooner. We went to the megamart the other day and the Halloween clearance (and fall for that matter) was already 75% off and squished into a tiny section. Christmas was already set. I did find a cool Snoopy Scarecrow that I … [Read more…]
The topic for today is thus: When were you brave? When was the last time you did something brave? What happened? I guess it’s pretty simple. We had what was supposed to be an open house for our library. I spoke out directly against the person responsible for the whole mess. The mess is that … [Read more…]
Today I’m writing about a mental health day for NABLOPOMO. I started with NABLOPOMO around 8 years ago, I think. It was where I made my first blogging friends, most of whom I still chat with daily on FB. Some write now and again, some not at all. But that original few that I posted … [Read more…]
Moms can probably relate– I fell asleep walking to the bathroom in the middle of the night–it’s only about 10 feet–and smashed into the doorway and TV– with my FACE. Talk about a wake up call. At least it didn’t cause any lasting damage. Any funny mom injuries ever happen to you?
