Please Help Find Abigail Hernandez

While I have no personal involvement in this missing person case, it hits close to home – literally and figuratively. Her family lives about an hour away from ours. She’s close in age to our children. Her missing poster is…

Happy Sweet 16, DreamHost!

I’m taking a quick break from hauling widget boxes over from my old blog to wish my awesome hosting company a happy sixteenth birthday. I’ve been a customer of DreamHost since 1999, thanks to the recommendation of my dear friend…

Eddie

On Tuesday, June 26th, Eddie, our beloved Schipperke, lost his battle with Cushings. Words are still failing me. Someday I’ll be ready to share some of the wonderful memories of our oh-too-brief time with him, but for now, I still…

A Little Tease With My Whine

I’ve been eating/sleeping/breathing “Wrecked” for the past week or so, and I think my sanity (if you can call it that) is slipping a bit. My head is noisier than usual, and my creative energy seems to be stirring up…

Some day I’ll have a stress-free time before Christmas… *grin* Worst thing about my annual angst – it’s completely and totally under my control, yet I always let it get the best of me. I really thought I’d have it…
