I Got Nothin

You know, it’s just one of those days where I have nothing worth talking about. I have little bits of fluff floating around, but nothing you would be remotely interested in. Nothing to win me one of those bloggie-er awards. You know that’s all I’m after. I was going to rant about people who do […]

I Don’t Know How I’m Raising This Kid

Okay, so for Christmas this year I bought my son and my sister’s kids each a toy call a “Musini MagicSensor” (that was on sale for almost free at Amazon) that encourages movement by only playing music when you move.

The Lost Post

I tried to email to blogger last night and this disappeared, so I copied it from my outbox. I am a very VERY unhappy girl right now. How on earth it happened, I don’t know, but at some point today my SideKick got two scratches on the face that are actually so annoying and distracting […]

Before I Forget

Jody Says: This is the perfect time of year to treat yourself to a little something special – lotions, bath salts, candles. This recently-discovered site is actually owned by my friend’s sister, but she does have some great prices on some really neat stuff. If you live in Santa Cruz, you can visit her store, […]
