Laundry Time

Back in those dark days of the not too distant past, the weekly need to do our laundry affected my whole day (and, to be honest, bled over to the days before and after as well). We’d been spoiled by many years of having our own washer and dryer, before downsizing an extreme amount to... Continue Reading →

The Nostalgic Vote

Today, in addition to being hubby's birthday (happy birthday, hon! I love you!), was the first time our eldest got to vote. Needless to say, proud momma managed (with permission from the gentleman in charge) to snap a picture as she entered the booth. It was also a bit of a trip down memory lane,... Continue Reading →

The Best Laid Plans

Yesterday was one of those days. Before this month crammed full of writing began, I had plans that I’d get my daily blogging done and posted before noon, then spend the rest of the day doing fits and spurts of NaNo writing. But my body decided Daylight Savings be dammed, and I slept twelve hours... Continue Reading →

A Dream (Host) Interlude

First, a clarification from yesterday’s post - my fourteen year old said she was less “appropriately horrified” and more “mildly inconvenienced” (her words) because she had to keep her hand in front of her face to hide my mad dancing skills from her eyes. I guess my ability to trip the light fantastic intimidates her... Continue Reading →

A year and a day

How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon? ~ Dr. Seuss It's hard to believe it's been 366 days since my last blog post. Needless to say, there's much... Continue Reading →

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 now showing up in stores where we shop. Even though my audience here is small,... Continue Reading →

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 thinkum, and I've never wanted to look elsewhere. Not only do they send out entertaining,...

From InternetG33k to Traci York

The Great InternetG33k Website and Blog Transfer of 2013 is underway! Please pardon the mess. I'm slowly working through, changing links and adding widgets. Until I finish, there will be old blog entries saying they're authored by InternetG33k (my former moniker), while new entries will be attributed to me. Also, some links might still bring...

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 miss him too much. Rest easy, buddy. I know you have great company at the...

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 resident spooks in our house.  Is it a bad that whenever something goes bump... Continue Reading →

Unedited and unapologic

Okay, I changed my mind - I fixed some typos, and I'm sorry for the unpolished nature of the following excerpt. *grin* This is part of my current NaNoWriMo project, tentatively titled "Submerged" (it was "Tangled" for a week or so, but this seems more apropos). Even though I fixed typos, this is the mostly... Continue Reading →
