Spring Is Coming… I can feel it!

  The days are getting longer… I love long days and sunshine. Y.E.S.! I am having lots of fun on Pinterest these days- finding inspiration on  useful  dinner ideas and how to stay organized. Love the tip I read- that has been helping me stay on top of laundry and not become overwhelmed...

Good Housekeeping, Geneen Roth, Yoga, and Me …

When I took Sam for his final X- Ray, to make sure his broken collarbone was healed, we ended up waiting for the doctor in the examining room for over 45 minutes. Five year old, ball of energy, Sam was climbing the examining table like a jungle gym. He wanted to get up on the table, get down again, over...

YEOWCH!

I usually get my eyebrows waxed once a month. They start looking a little scruffy and so I head to a little shop that I don’t need an appointment for and they usually take me right away.  Unfortunately, the last few times I have gone to this  particular shop my brows have been a little uneven...

Happy Spring!

The daffodils in the front yard have bloomed and withered. Tulips and lilac are finishing up their posing. Spring is here! It feels like a switch has been flicked in me. New energy and excitement for what awaits. Life feels fresh. Sun beautiful sun. I came across a wonderful article about Holi , the...

Dreaming

Ever since Home and Garden TV (HGTV) announced their annual Dream Home giveaway I have been a little obsessed with the prize. They are giving away a brand new, farmhouse style house in Sonoma. Sonoma! Sonoma is one of my favorite towns in the whole world. Wine county living appeals to me. I love the...

Think About How You Say Things, Please

Todays life lesson comes courtesy of some barstools I am attempting to sell on Craigslist. I bought these barstools about a year ago when I fantasized they would end up in our "new" kitchen. However, I now realize the kitchen will not be "new" for at least five years when we might consider remodeling...

Huh?

Since I got my new computer , Michael is trying to teach me some of the new things in techie world that have been created in the past six years when I went underground to have kids --and apparently lost touch with the outside world. My latest discovery is Plurk. I am still trying to figure out what Twitter...

A First.....

Alex and Sam had their first sleep over last night. Their friends, Tom and Michael who are about the same age as they are, spent the night. We decided to take the boys so their parents could celebrate their anniversary. Happy Anniversary Suzanne and Zee! Hope you had fun. We had a great time. Gotta love...

What did we do before we had kids?

Michael and I were talking during our weekend off. What is it that we did with ourselves before we had kids? I tried to ignite my dull memory to figure it out. As we strolled around San Francisco I noticed a lot of young single-looking people, sans kids- sitting around in restaurants. As we passed outdoor...

Happy Anniversary, Part 2

For part two of our anniversary celebration, we spent Saturday night in San Francisco (after our awesome day in Healdsburg ). One perk of Michael traveling so much for work, is that he is now part of the Starwood Preferred Guest Program and he had a free night available at a Starwood Hotel. The "W" was...
