I’ve told you guys many times that I use Google’s Picasa to store my pictures. When you first sign up for Picasa you get the first 15 GB of storage free. For the last 5 years we have paid for extra storage. It is on an annual auto-pay so we never ever think about paying […]

I am gonna rant at you guys for a little bit about something that I do every week. Every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday I pick Lily up from school. According to google maps it is exactly 1 mile door to door from our house to the school. I have tried convincing Lily that we should […]

Lily pay phone mariners

If you could make one phone call to your past self would you? What year would you call? What would you say? If I had the choice I think I would actually prefer my future self to call my current self.

So I talk about the plants in our yard all the time… that is no secret. What I haven’t told you guys is that this crazy cold winter that we have had has taken a toll on all of them. Okay maybe not all of them but about 80% of them. I am not even […]

act your age

I recently overheard someone telling someone else something like “Grow up and act your age… your foot is half in the grave”. I can’t remember exactly what the person said but it really got me thinking. How do you act your age? I think that once you hit a certain age you start hankering for […]


We woke up this morning at 4:30 am to get packed and head to the airport. Our flight wasn’t until 7:30 am but it is said that today is the biggest travel day of the year so we wanted to be safe. After we returned the rental car and made it through security we had […]

When I first started my website it wasn’t really a problem but as time goes on and I post more and more information the spam that I receive via comments seems to get worse and worse.  I have my comments section set up with a rule that says “Comment author must have a previously approved […]


#1 – I am not sure if you ever click on my other pages above. See the one that says “BofC”? I just updated it today so go ahead and click on it again! #2 – Yesterday I was on the phone with my brother and he said he was working in Boston, Massachusetts this week. I […]


Have you ever seen or used one of these before? When I was a kid my Mom had one so I kinda thought that everyone had one. Over the last couple months at least 4 people have told me that they have never seen a tomato slicer before. How do people without a tomato slicer […]


Closets, closets, closets. It is so easy to stuff something in a closet and completely forget about it or pretend it belongs there. We have a closet downstairs just off of the kitchen that I hate going into. One good thing about living in San Antonio is that we don’t have a use for coats very […]

Today is my 1 year anniversary of being cigarette free! I truly believe that I will be a non-smoker for the rest of my life. I still like telling people that I use to smoke, because I feel so proud of myself for stopping. It is hard to believe that I did it for so […]


Spending the last few days in Montana made me appreciate the weather here in San Antonio. I am not sure why I was so surprised but when I walked out of work today it was beautiful and warm. 73° on December 14th is nothing to complain about. On my way home today I started thinking […]


I hate my morning commute. If I work the schedule that I want (8:00-4:30) it takes me at least 55 minutes both ways to drive about 20 miles to work. I recently changed my schedule to go in almost an hour earlier in an effort to avoid traffic and now it takes me about 35 minutes in the morning […]


About a year ago JP turned me on to the hair products at Origins. If you have never smelled Clear Head Mint Shampoo or Conditioner do yourself a favor, go find the closest Origins store and smell it. The first few times I tried it I only used it because I ran out of the shampoo […]

 I’m an electronic gadget fanatic. I love them! I love all the things that my little electronic robots can do for me. I did watch a lot of Jetsons as a kid .. do you think its possible the technology of “Rosie” had an impact on me? There’s so much great technology out there. At the same […]

In the middle of the day I remembered that I needed to go pick up one last thing at the mall. I pulled up a map and decided which way to go when I left work. I was about 1/2 way there when I saw a traffic sign about an accident in that direction so […]
