I lost an old friend yesterday. Her name was Rockie, and she was an amazing cat.
I had her for 13 years – since she was the tiniest kitten you could imagine. A rescue found on the side of a field with her father and the rest of her litter. She was the runt, and the last one left. We grew up together and I loved her dearly. (more…)
Yeah… so… We haven’t really made much progress on the renovations since – November?!? We’re such slackers…
Maybe someday we’ll actually finish it. *crosses fingers*
The first floor renovations on our house are nearly done! We’ve almost finished the minimum needed in order to meet our goal – host Thanksgiving. We’ll still have a bit of work to do on the front section of the first floor, but that’s functional-enough and not really necessary at the moment. I doubt we’ll have time to move forward with that remaining portion – and if we did, it’d just be opening a big can of worms (re: would make a big mess). (more…)
I need to speed up my blogging. Maybe I’m tweeting too much and don’t have the stamina for a full length blog post. Or maybe it’s because I haven’t had time or the need at work to write up involved how-tos lately? I could just be frazzled from the busy summer and wedding planning.
It’s taking me too long to get around to returning to my drafts, and collecting the steps and/or details to finish my blog posts. My drafts are building up! I really just need to buckle down and finish them. At least I have the forethought to start the drafts with notes as I think of them so I can return to them later
Sure, we love our toys and gadgets – but we’re tired of all the junk and clutter. Today we started paring down. Sorting. Recycling. Junking. Donating. Selling.
We don’t need two large screen TVs or quite so many DVDs. We’ve already donated 6 bags of old clothes that have been piling up in our closets for the last few years. Boxes have been piling up in our basement that we really should go through one of these days. And what are we doing with all of these now-ancient computer books on our shelves?
