2015 — Looking Back

2015 — Looking Back

Azziz is gone. It’s not exactly the greatest news, considering he accomplished what he came to do. It’s too bad we can’t ever go back. (February 2015) I’ve heard people complain about the new jobs downtown and the parking issues the additional people will create. Well, folks, you can’t have it both ways. If you […]

Quality Over Quantity

Quality Over Quantity

When it comes to holiday shopping, do you plan ahead? Wait until the very last minute? I guess I tend to fall somewhere in the middle. I never start before Thanksgiving, but starting on Christmas Eve would make me panic. I don’t even mind braving the crowds in December, on the prowl for the perfect […]

Getting Over a Case of the Guilts

Getting Over a Case of the Guilts

How’s your holiday decorating going? If you’re Jewish, I’d guess you’re all set, since Hanukkah is well underway. Who am I kidding? You’re probably all finished. It’s December, after all. I’m behind. Haven’t started. I went through this last year, too. It was different, though. I couldn’t catch the spirit. This year, I simply haven’t […]

Chore-ography

What’s your least favorite household chore? I don’t think many people actually enjoy mopping, scrubbing toilets or doing laundry, but most of you probably have something you hate over others. As an aside, I do have a couple of friends who might enjoy cleaning. It may be that they appreciate the end result; a clean […]

I’m thankful for technology. Really, I am. I can’t quite appreciate the full breadth of my thankfulness, but I’ll get there. My laptop died. Our backup plan, an iPad with a bluetooth keyboard, failed, too. I sound spoiled, and these are first-world problems, but I can’t do my job without technology. Gone are the days […]

Vive La Paix

Vive La Paix

For my 16th birthday, my dad took me to Paris. I’d taken French for a couple of years at the time, and though I wasn’t fluent, I loved the language and spoke it pretty well. I understood it fluently but was afraid to converse. We were warned about Parisians not caring for Americans. If we […]

Why Am I Here?

Why Am I Here?

Last weekend, I did something completely out of my comfort zone. I would’ve told you about it sooner, but I didn’t. With our schedule these days, I didn’t have it on my radar until the last minute. I didn’t think you’d be interested anyway. If I’m being honest, which I usually am, I was nervous […]

1. Cowgirl Sparkly Witch Zombie Harry Potter Kitty. She’s started having to explain her costume with “It’s complicated,” but it doesn’t bother her a bit. Next year’s layer has already been decided. It might be my favorite one so far. 2. As planned, he was Zipperface. It looked so real, what with his face unzipped-like, […]

My kids love Halloween. They’ve always loved playing dress up so it’s a natural fit. Rather than being into Legos, The Boy loved capes and masks. His imagination would make any crappy accessory seem real. The first Phantom of the Opera mask he had was made of cardboard and a rubber hair band. His four […]
