I'm stealing from the suggested topic this time since it is so easy - and easy is always best for a Monday 🙂 So here are my pets: Amber the large boned, long haired, highly vocal (I swear she's had entire back and forth conversations with Alex who, naturally, loves to tease her) part Maine...

Well, the kitties are anyway. The rest of us? Sometimes home to sleep. Who knew I'd be taking a blogging hiatus? Caught Chip mid-yawn - they do love their Ham-micks! I swear I'll be back later....
The results of carrying a camera (phone) at all times
Pictures from my iPhone taken within the last week - starting with Sunday as I flew home from San Jose. Tales of that trip will begin dribbling out on my PP site over the next week or two. Meanwhile, the north San Diego coast line was sort of awesome from the air. The... Continue Reading →
Math with cats!
My house is exactly 1803 square feet. There is laminate or tile flooring covering around 1,100 of those sqft (the entire downstairs for instance, then both upstairs bathrooms). The remaining 700 sqft which is carpeted covers the stairs, the bridge and the two master bedrooms on the second floor. That's a shade under 40%. Since... Continue Reading →
My kick ass trainer
The other night while watching The Biggest Loser for inspiration, I launched into my first planned home workout routine. I was doing great - blew past the targeted 15 minutes and was on the back end of a 40 minute routine. Wanting to work on my leg strength, I was doing chair sits against the... Continue Reading →
Let the games begin! (I need the distraction)
Ah summer, when my day job gets so intense that I have no brain left to drive home let alone write a blog post! Also, whose idea was it to have my kid jam a one year online math class into not even three months? As if Mr Lazy & Unmotivated was going to... Continue Reading →
Short Stories from Casa Crazy
Some time ago as joke I created a Facebook location for our house and called it Casa Crazy. I did it because I'd had dinner with some friends who had all commented on how LAME Facebook check ins are, especially when people are checking in from home and calling their home some cutesy name. So,... Continue Reading →
May 19th – Hearth and Home
Catchy title eh? Ads a lovely delusion of grandeur to the much more boring reality that I basically stayed put and did chores 😉 OK, not entirely true. I did run out to Starbucks to grab breakfast. My cereal box for the week was empty and I didn't want to make eggs and I have... Continue Reading →
May 14 – Trespassing!
Arrived today! Of course I've been listening to the tracks streaming on his website since last week, but now I get to blast it in the car and finally load it on my phone and not be at the whims of a web stream. I'm pretty much guaranteed to love everything he sings - especially... Continue Reading →
May 12 – And peace was restored
Mother's Day is tomorrow, but I am declaring that I celebrated mine today. 26 and I had a great day together (along with the aforementioned friend I took in to work yesterday). I lounged in bed. The vet called to say Chip needed another day on the catheter. He was clearly feeling better but there... Continue Reading →
