Ducks in a Row

Extracurricular activities. I never imagined I would struggle with these two little words. And yet. Our girls are six. And still not enrolled in anything. Now, it’s not like we’re trying to raise Olympic Athletes here. We’ve always believed we should let them develop their own interests. Or the same ones. And it’s made sense to begin with the… Read More Ducks in a Row

Resistance is Futile

Our iMac and MacbookPro are approximately six years old. Which means so is my Adobe CS 5 software. Considering all of these have been running like a 1812 Steam Engine and that my need for mobile use of the Creative Suite increases daily, it’s clear it’s time to upgrade.

Angry Laughter*

This week a friend sent me a video that I wasn’t able to open until about 11 o’clock at night. And now I’m no longer allowed to read email after the girls go to bed. THANKS A LOT, MAIYA. *Lost? We’re talking about this crazy addictive game. Don’t even try it. It’s way easy. And… Read More Angry Laughter*
