Picking My Battles

I don’t usually give myself permission to not go to the gym and do all the things I feel I must do each day. I welcome my body telling me to lie down and close my eyes.

I Can’t Write Anything That Isn’t Angry

I’m up to my twitching eyelids in local politics as I defend my livelihood from the deaf ears of City Council who have deemed renting out rooms in my licensed and inspected house on AirBnB and VRBO to be “socially unjust.” That’s a quote. Perhaps they need a reminder about what social injustice actually looks like. […]

AirBnB Brouhaha

I just woke up from the most epic nap. I have been unusually tired despite going to bed a 8:30. It’s the stress. The day before I left for a vacation with my family and my Dad (HI DAD!) and step-mom, I got a scary letter from the City of Boulder. As you probably know, […]

Why I Hate Craigslist

        My husband and I own a couple properties which we rent out on various vacation rental websites.
