While the rest of the country freezes its tushie off…

We’ve turned on our air conditioning for the past (and future) few days.. What the heck is up with that?? It’s 79 degrees outside according to my iPhone’s weather widget.  Where the hell did winter go?? We had to turn on our a/c because due to our vaulted ceilings throughout the house (which, by the […]

Living in the desert

  We see these all over the place where I live. Short, tall, skinny, wide, no arms, dozens of arms… Did you know it is illegal do do any damage to these plants, even if you own one? You cannot just go out and dig one up out of the desert and plant it in […]

My civic duty

In December I got a jury summons for January 14.  So tonight I have to call the number on the paperwork to see if they still need my group or if I luck out for like the umpteenth time and my group gets dismissed.  I think I’ve gotten five or six summons over the years […]

Oh my aching back

…and feet.  Yuck I hate yard work.  We had a few weeds that were getting a little out of control, and since the ground is still wet from last week, I decided I should probably pull a few while it was still light out. Now my back hurts, my feet hurt and the sciatica in […]

Gearing up for Spring Cleaning?

Yeah I know – Spring is still a couple months away, and most of the country is still in the midst of Jack Frost’s wrath, but what better way to wile away the time spent hunkered down indoors than to plan out your Spring Cleaning schedule? I have seen these Space Bags advertised on televsion and […]

If you make toys, clothes or other items for children and sell them – listen up!!

I just got an email from a WAHM doing really well in the bow making business, regarding a new law that is supposed to go into effect in February that could possibly affect anyone who makes anything for children – toys, clothes, jewelry, accessories, etc., etc.. Please see her page at this link to read about […]

2009 didn’t bring me motivation

I’ve been feeling pretty lazy about pretty much everything.  I said in my first post of the year that I wanted to get back into working with my polymer clay and jewelry and stuff, but I just haven’t been bitten by that bug yet.  Instead, I’ve been spending my off time playing World of Warcraft […]

So not in the mood

To work, that is.  I just haven’t been able to get back into the swing of things at work since my week off for Christmas.  I had a couple of good days with my numbers, but for the most part they’ve been below my average for sure.  Bleh.

They will meet their doom

The termites, that is, I hope.  Tomorrow the exterminator is coming back out again to hopefully drill into the slab of the house to start getting rid of those creepy crawlies. After I cleaned out the closet in my husband’s office I pulled up the carpet to track the trails, which go all the way […]

Snail mail spam

Do you remember those old pyramid schemes?  The ones where you were sent a bulky letter in the mail, with a giant list of people and their addresses, and you were supposed to send like one dollar to the first ten or something like that, then add your name to the top of the list, […]
