"They grow up before you know it..."
I know this is true. I've always known it's true. When I was a new mommy, holding an impossibly beautiful, tiny being to my breast, I would just look at him with wonder, and I would hear someone's voice, often my grandmother's, saying "Treasure this moment....

2016: Looking ahead, looking within
Despite a rocky beginning, I have to confess I'm feeling pretty positive about 2016. Don't get me wrong--I was devastated at the loss of some of my favorite and most inspirational people, all within a few short weeks, from November to January. Even so, I fe...

Digging out after life in the den
Winter Storm Jonas - about 4" total. It's a funny thing about snowstorms--most of my friends and family really dislike winter weather the older they get. They don't like the cold, they don't like the snow, they hate the way other people drive in it, and so ...

40 Bags in 40 Days - The Attic!
On my original schedule, I set aside a week to do the attic. I did about 85% of it today, since I found myself unexpectedly child-less (as my child apparently expected to be at his GiGi's today), and I thought I'd better seize the opportunity while it was t...

40 Bags in 40 Days - Update
I've taken something of an unintended break from de-crapifying. This is mainly because all of my spare time for the last I-don't-know-how-many weeks has been sucked up by trying to get all of our tax documents in order. There's been organization happening, ...

40 Bags in 40 Days - Day...3?
After my binge on Thursday, I gave myself a couple of days off. I had planned to re-start on Monday, but today at breakfast, I found myself looking at the dresser I'd just cleaned on Thursday, and started mentally rearranging furniture. "Honey," I said, "Yo...
