http://youtu.be/CC2qKATc3Bw I love the Google doodles! They are so creative - you never know which holidays/birthdays/anniversary events that they will mark so you end up going over there once a day just to see what might be up. We aren't celebrating outside the blog this year 🙂 It being a Wednesday it sort... Continue Reading →
Oct 30 – Weary
Weary of election crap. Weary of people who can't respect anyone on the other side of an argument EVER - even when said person is commenting in a thread about how nice it is to see people cooperating during a disaster. Weary of people who prefer their biases over math and scientific evidence. Weary over people who... Continue Reading →
Oct 29 – Preparedness
Thanks to twitter and facebook I feel like I know half the people living under that enormous storm cloud. Many have been tracking it well since last week and could tell it would be hugs. All seem to have been diligently watching the reports and preparing ahead for the storm and it's aftermath (flooding... Continue Reading →
Oct 28 – Last Day of Vacation
Set my alarm for 5:45 this morning. Why? Because Renee was starting her race at 7:50 central time and I wanted to track it. I setup my laptop right next to my bed and just had to roll over and hit refresh on the website obsessively while watching Up. The IronMan 70.3 is as you... Continue Reading →
Oct 27 – Termites!
Isn't that pretty? That's termite sawdust...inside the door frame of my french doors. They are pretty well established in the trim around the whole house. Door trim, roof eaves - everywhere. My shared wall neighbor had her house painted and these same trim pieces replaced and they were just covered in bugs and pretty... Continue Reading →
Oct 26 – When politics and personal life collide
OK, so I am not transitioning DIRECTLY into fluffy fun from yesterday. There's a transition of sorts. As I hinted at in my race report, there have been some err....female problems..going on recently as I approach that time in a gal's life when certain reproductive systems prepare to take a dirt nap 🙂 When I...

Oct 25 – So, wait – what year IS this exactly?
I will apologize ahead of time to my more feint of heart readers but this politically oriented post needs to be on my blog site that gets the most eyeballs. It turns my stomach to see this graph, but it is important for female voters, and men who support us as equals, to see this: Courtesy of... Continue Reading →
Oct 24 – Oh, was I supposed to post today?
And here I thought having a week off would make it EASY to post every day Of course, this has turned into the typical at home time off when time fills quickly with errands and I was barely home yesterday & am out again this morning. 16's concussion recovery has stalled. He is having... Continue Reading →
Oct 23 – All My Children!
Day one of vacation was filled with many errands and accomplishments. There was also a final debate. But none of that matters. Because this happened: Right to left: 16, 27 and 27's older sister (same dad) and her adorable baby girl. While I have been keeping up with her through Facebook for awhile now,... Continue Reading →
Oct 22 – SheROX San Diego Race Report
Weather conditions were just about perfect. Some heavy drizzle just before the start kept them from being the best possible. But the water was "warm" for the bay at 68 and the outside temps were the same and there was.......NO WIND!!! (oh thank you all the deities to be thanked!) My personal condition was less...
