In the past few years, my body has changed a lot. Rheumatoid disease has given me a possibly permanent wobble when I walk and slightly deformed hands, I’ve lost about 25% of what I weighed then, I just plain look older, my proportions have shifted. I’ve gotten rid of a lot of my clothing and… More I am not, and have never been, a fashionista.
Sometimes I love Farm Fresh To You’s offerings (generally awesome melon and greens), often they’re good enough (your basic apples are fine), sometimes just meh (like the strawberries in a given week are super-tart, or the blueberries have started to shrivel). But I hang on for this: They turned me onto Keitt mangos and they’re… More KEITT MANGOS ARE IN omg omg omg
The worse my rheumatoid disease has gotten, the more I’ve had to give up brick-and-mortar and go online for shopping.

We gave up awhile back trying to limit screen time for Owen. It doesn’t seem to limit his creativity (he’s being outrageously creative right now, in front of the television) and he gets plenty of sunshine and exercise. I know the Experts want it limited, but maybe, if one pays attention to kids as individuals,… More Oggy and the Cockroaches and giving up a little control.
I just had a flip through my twitter followers page for the first time in two or three years. I’m a bit surprised at some of the people following me whom I’m not following (or wasn’t): Tom Robinson? Ms Magazine? A few different college geography departments? Wow. Cool. I had no idea. I added/reciprocated a… More social media blah blah idea dump
He’s so on the verge of reading and spelling. I got him Boggle Jr. a few weeks ago, figuring that he likes dice, it might be fun. He was completely uninterested. This morning, he took it off the shelf, sat down with it, and is happily making words. I need to remind myself that for… More I should trust my kid more often
