Lists… who’s running this show?

Lists… who’s running this show?

I like lists.  I like the process of writing them.  I like the look of the listed items with their optimistic little checkboxes.  I like it that my list provides a plan for accomplishing things during my day, that my list keeps me organized and on track.  I like it that my list lets me … Continue reading

App of the week: PostalPix

I tried out a new app this week and it filled a niche that surprisingly wasn’t already filled by the apps currently on my phone. I say “surprisingly” because I have what seems to me like an awful lot of apps. The other day I was looking at all of my little folders crammed with … Continue reading

Washcloths and Failures

Washcloths and Failures

This is my update on the yarn along.  It’s also a chance to tell you I’m making a new “super easy, use up some yarn you probably already have” pattern.  Any guesses which is the washcloth and which is the failure?  Right. I was all happy and possibly a bit cocky last week about how … Continue reading

Chernobyl …the meltdown at my house

One of my favorite stories of my son, Spencer, is from when he was in kindergarten and picked out a heart-shaped Care Bear lunch box for school. I remember asking him if he would be okay with it if someone gave him a bad time about it and I loved his reply. He said, “that’s … Continue reading

Does anyone else hear it being said in a news anchor voice?  “A  year  in  review … with  Tom  Brokaw.”  How ’bout now? Anyway, I’m doing a … Continue reading

App review: Storyboarder

Storyboarder is a super cool app made by the same people who make two other apps I’ve talked about (Postagram and Sincerely Ink). In iTunes they state “Storyboarder allows you to quickly and easily tell your story from a collection of photos.” That’s true, but I don’t think really does the app justice or sells … Continue reading

I fell off the wagon…

I fell off the wagon…

I made it eight days into 2012 before I fell off the wagon. No, not the liquor wagon or the food wagon (food cart?)… Actually, I don’t know the origin of that phrase “off the wagon,” so if I’m mixing metaphors as I go on, sorry about that. I generally have a pretty good grasp … Continue reading
