I think I left my laptop at the BFs house. Funny how I haven’t noticed until now. That means this post, written entirely with my thumbs, will be short. Today was a big day. I sold my Shasta trailer after coming to terms with the fact that it just didn’t make sense to have it. […]
I’ve referred to the neighborhood social networking site Nextdoor a few times, it’s a place where people can post about garage sales, ask for recommendations for handymen, send out an alert about a lost pet (or in my case, a found one) but mostly it’s where people go to complain about their neighbors. Usually it […]
Sometimes I leave out details that might upset someone who reads my blog – and believe me, there are times when I wish it was anonymous – sometimes I am writing it from the perspective of the person I want to be, maybe putting the cart before the horse.
Do you know who wasn’t impressed by the 4th of July fireworks?
I exist in my bubble of comfort and privilege but I am keeping my eyes and mind open. I sometimes avert my gaze because it is overwhelming but I return to it.

I’m giving myself one hour to write this post because I’M THAT BUSY. For real, it’s ridiculous. I pretty much make masks, do some mandatory self-care (walking, strength training, salad eating – which takes forever!) gourmet cooking for the boys and then sew, sew, sew. I go to bed exhausted. Easter was a bust because […]
I awoke feeling so happy. I got to have all the things I have been missing: travel, crowds, music, dancing, and random encounters with kind people. In other words, a Bassnectar summer gathering.
I’ll admit it. Like someone driving past a car crash, I couldn’t help but look. I watched (some) Tiger King to see what all the fuss was about. Do I feel dirty? Yes. DB is into it but I’m a little hesitant, especially after watching the first episode. “You’re hung up on the tragedy of […]
I got this nifty little notification today. I guess that’s not happening, not that it’s all that pressing at this time. My biggest motivation to get my divorce finalized was to get my short-term rental license so I could rent out my little house on weekends to supplement my income. Who knows when the pandemic […]
