Don’t look at me… my struggle is showing!

Don’t look at me… my struggle is showing!

At my software development bootcamp (Epicodus), we work in a style called “pair programming.”  Pair programming refers to a practice where two people share the same computer, working together to write and debug their code.  Each person in the pair takes turns on the keyboard and each person contributes by talking through the code whether … Continue reading

My text from the Easter Bunny

My text from the Easter Bunny

Not just anyone gets a text every year from the Easter Bunny… the real Easter Bunny.  At my house, we do. This text is from this past Sunday, but it started years ago when my boys were little and believed in all things make-believe and magical, especially if those things involved candy and/or celebrating.  So, they were … Continue reading

Groceries just show up!!! Really!

Groceries just show up!!! Really!

My current favorite app is the one that magically makes food appear in my house in a couple of hours or whenever I’d like to schedule it to be delivered.  Who wouldn’t love that?  It makes me want to grocery shop (because I’m really not!). I’m talking about Instacart, a handy dandy little app for ordering … Continue reading

What blog am I reading?!?

For those who were reading my blog a couple years ago, my last post (I Kinda Get Git…) may have you wondering what blog you inadvertently subscribed to back then.

(Not an) App of the Week: HomeSpot HQ

This week’s app of the week is actually not an app at all, but I’m including it anyway and hoping the developers will create an app for their awesome site.  HomeSpotHQ.com is self-described on their site as follows: “HomeSpot is a free online tool that allows homeowners to manage home improvement projects, prepare routine maintenance schedules and record … Continue reading

App of the Week:  Packing with Evernote

App of the Week: Packing with Evernote

This is not the first time that I’ve written a post featuring Evernote. I’ve extolled (I don’t get to use that word very often) it’s virtues as an organizer of recipes and magazine articles. I’ve written about how I’ve used it to organize my knitting patterns. In addition, Evernote was the app I wrote about … Continue reading

The Sabbatical

I stink at my sabbatical right now. I keep thinking of things I want to say…like that “I’ve finally cracked it…!” [the way to make packing less of a nightmare, that is]. I think that post is my next App of the Week. At any rate, I just want you to know that I reserve … Continue reading
