5 Things to Stop Doing – NOW!

A few months ago, I was mentioning to a hiring manager – a CLIENT – over the phone that I would be out of the office for several days because we were celebrating my husband’s 50th birthday. He then actually had the nerve to “joke” with me that my husband was “robbing the cradle”, and when I calmly mentioned that…

I parked next to this Wonder Woman car the other night…how cool is that… I’ve been to the Grilled Cheese Grill a million times but never sat inside the bus…considering my Australian husband never took a big yellow bus to school, I had to give him the experience, right?

Peri-WTF?! (or, having the courage to be free)

So I’m slowly but surely coming to the concept that I’m actually in perimenopause and have been for a number of years. I mean, hell, minus the hot flashes everything else seems to match pretty perfectly, from my fucked up ovaries to my mood swings to my space-out moments. Fact is, in just over two months I’ll be 44. When…

Lots on my mind. Exhaling a LOT this week! A basic list for men – ALL men – to read…no matter how feminist they consider themselves to be. Amen. A huge thing going on that isn’t getting an ounce of coverage in our regular news feeds I found buried in The Guardian the other day? It was determined that THREE-QUARTERS…

Autumn in Oregon never ceases to amaze me, even in our garden, from the heuchera to the vine leaf maple to the snowberry tree going from blossom to berry, love it… Holy crap it’s Friday and Season 2 of Stranger Things is on so I gotta make this quick as it’s marathon time! I love this: Boobs are not a…

This is our mural downstairs in a little nook area outside of the bedroom that would have been for our little one. Being the basement and being beach bums ourselves, the ocean concept was an easy one, so I got some inspirations from some cartoon pictures and went to town with a black sharpie, then coloring those in with some…
