Happy Holidays! Part One.

It’s the sign of a good holiday week, when I completely forget to post about it (because I’m too busy enjoying it!). We’re here in Tucson at my grandmother’s. Growing up, this house seemed huge, but it’s a 1950s ranch house with three bedrooms and two baths. They added on a den and a larger

Stuck in the Middle.

Right now, I’m sitting in the Comfort Suites in Blythe, CA. About 3:45 yesterday we were about 5 miles past Chiriaco Summit when we got a flat tire. The car was too low for us to get the spare out and we called AAA. We realized that we probably should have jacked the car to

App Review: EyeEm

If you’ve read my post about Instagram and their new Terms of Service, I updated it. Just so you don’t have to click to another page, this is the latest: Instagram blogged about the backlash, admitting they weren’t very clear in the way they wrote it (actually, they said that we just misinterpreted it because

Oh, did I forget?

I forgot that I try to post daily, apparently. Not really. It was just an incredibly long day. The Little Kidlet had his last day of preschool for this calendar year, and his Winter Program, too! Usually it’s a big to-do in the chapel (it being a Lutheran school), but this year they did smaller

Instagram: What you need to know.

Since was originally posted, there have been developments from the story. I’ve marked the updates down at the bottom. Not that long ago, Facebook acquired Instagram. They integrated it into Facebook, and the internet rejoiced. Well, today Instagram began informing users about their updated Terms of Service- mostly to bring them more into line with

After Midnight.

This weekend, I did the unthinkable. I had a weekend filled with events. And for an introvert, that’s major. On Saturday afternoon, we went out to my brother-in-law’s housewarming party. The kidlets played with some other children and I actually talked to people instead of hiding behind my phone. It’s shocking, I know. Even more

Sunday Special Wrap-up: 12/16/12

{Geek} The Doubleclicks (along with Kirby Krackle) found a way to fix Baby it’s Cold Outside. All they had to do was move it to a galaxy far, far, away. Phil Noto posted this amazing poster-style art for Star Trek Into Darkness on his Tumblr. 12/12/12 happened, and it took down Tumblr. Somehow I survived

Coping with the Loss

Yesterday I’d planned on posting my weekly link post. But I just couldn’t bring myself to post anything. I’d been offline most of the morning because of a doctor’s visit (I haven’t been feeling well) and it wasn’t until I was picking up the Oldest Kidlet that I even checked my phone. And while I

My daily drive.

Right now, I have a morning drive that takes me around the hills nearby. Past the cemetery where deer come out in the morning to graze. Onto the freeway to continue driving around the hills. The funny thing is that the weather on one side of the hill is often very different. It will be

The Worst Parking Job of the Week!

I know, it’s Wednesday. There are still a few days for someone to snatch up the prize, but I figured I would share this gem. That’s right. This person pulled into what they thought was an open space, saw the cone there, and instead of getting out to move it (or to pull out and
