Gray Friday

Because I didn’t get up until 11:30 yesterday morning, I couldn’t sleep last night. My sleeplessness was aided and abetted by a good book and random cold-weather house-settling noises. I knew it had to be getting cold by how much noise the house was making. When I looked at my weather app at 2:00 AM, … Continue reading

Happy Thanksgiving!

This day was a bit jumbled and out of order. I woke up initially at 6:00 AM, got up and set the DVR for the parade (because I forgot to do it last night), checked Twitter and went back to sleep. I figured I’d wake up about 9:00. Instead, I woke up again at 11:30. … Continue reading

Dark Blues

One year ago today, I wrote this post. It’s funny, I feel exactly the same about the dark and cold right now as I did then. I could copy and paste the entire second paragraph here. I think it’s safe to say I have mild Seasonal Affective Disorder. I’m extremely fortunate that my symptoms are … Continue reading

Is That Just What I Get?

One more day. I think I can handle that. Just one more day of work and then a glorious four days off. Unfortunately, tomorrow also happens to be the last business day of the month and, for us, the last one of the quarter as well. So it’s bound to be busy, although I’m turning … Continue reading

I Watch Too Much TV

On the way home from my best friend’s house tonight, I was planning out this post in my head. I was going to tell you how sad I am that she’s moving (which I am) and how I don’t know what I’m going to do without her (which I don’t) and how horrible and terrible … Continue reading

Planning Ahead

The recent weather has me putting together an overnight kit to stash in the car. Because I live about an hour from where I work, the weather can prevent me from getting home. I want to make sure I can easily arrange to stay close to work and avoid the potentially dangerous highway. I’m trying … Continue reading

A Few of My Favorite Things

Sara recently posted about her favorite things, Oprah-style. What a fun way to share gift ideas and useful products! So without further ado (because, let’s face it, I’ll say plenty below), some of my favorite things: 1. Winter Dream Tea from The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf This tea is so delightful. It’s a rooibos … Continue reading

Freezing Rain and Catching Fire

I wasn’t sure I would get to post today with all the weather craziness around here today. If you don’t follow me on Twitter, we’ve been under a Winter Storm Advisory for the last day or so. It was fifteen degrees below zero on Tuesday and it warmed up enough by today to give us … Continue reading

Home

Yesterday was the four-year anniversary of closing on my house and today is the anniversary of moving in to it. Buying a house was one of the hardest, scariest, best things I ever did. I still get a little thrill every time I round the corner and my house comes into view. I fell in … Continue reading
