home office in my backyard

home office in my backyard

So maybe I jumped the gun too soon on this whole redecorating the office thing. Because this seems like a MUCH cooler option! (though it is a little bit a lot more expensive than a couple of cans of paint and some baseboard) (Photo: Courtesy of Cedarshed Industries)


what a difference a week makes

what a difference a week makes

First, I want to just update you all. This week has been crazy. C-R-A-Z-Y. It has been a long time since I’ve gone through such a wide range of emotions in such a short period of time! It started on Monday when I gave my 2 weeks notice at work. Then 2 days later, that… KEEP READING »


in which I GET FIRED.

in which I GET FIRED.

Yup. FIRED. Can you get fired if you already quit? Apparently you can. And, I got fired with a PHONE CALL. I took today off because we got new carpet installed today. I scheduled the day off last week before I gave my notice. So here I was, getting ready to start moving furniture and… KEEP READING »


in which I elaborate on the fact that soon, I will be self-employed

in which I elaborate on the fact that soon, I will be self-employed

So. One phase of insanity is ending, and another is beginning. After 2 years of full time work and evening work and very often weekend work, I am saying NO MORE, PLEASE! As of August 4, I will be working for ME. If you had told me 5 years ago I’d be doing this, I… KEEP READING »


blind leap

I just quit my job! It makes me want to do a little dance and throw up, all at the same time.


weekend in review (snore)

weekend in review (snore)

I spent all day Friday and parts of Saturday and Sunday cleaning out all of our JUNK from our 2 extra bedrooms. We’re getting new carpet installed on Wednesday (hurray for getting rid of the 25 year old nasty carpet!) and I still have no idea where we’re going to move everything while they’re working….

Italy: Day 6 (and 7)

Italy: Day 6 (and 7)

When I started this whole Italy recap thing, I swear I didn’t intend for it to take TWO FREAKING MONTHS. But it has. Life happens, what can I say? So. Our last full day in Italy. We got to sleep in again (which was good because the day-long trip to Florence was pretty tiring!) We… KEEP READING »


I guess this is a sign

I guess this is a sign

(WARNING: Geek-speak ahead.) One of the biggest annoyances in web design is developing for every browser possibility under the sun. FRUSTRATION. And the bane of my existence has always been Netscape 4. Recently I’ve switched over to all-CSS layouts for my blog and my freelance work, so Netscape 4 isn’t really on my radar anymore….

who’s bright idea was this again?

who’s bright idea was this again?

You know how I’ve been making excuses for not posting? There’s something else that’s been taking up my time, but of course I can’t post it publicly because I know some people from work read this and for now, I’m keeping my cards close to my vest. If you’ve been reading along here for any… KEEP READING »

in which I make excuses

Slacker blogger alert! I know I’ve been a bit absent lately… and when I do post, it’s stupid crap. And I’m fully aware that I STILL haven’t finished the Italy recaps (1 day left!) which is sad considering it’s been almost 2 months since we LEFT for the trip! I’m usually not this lazy, I… KEEP READING »


scattered

scattered

I just feel all over the place right now. I can’t think straight, and I’ve constantly got 50 bazillion thoughts running through my head simultaneously. I need to find something to wear to Sarah’s wedding this weekend. And for the wedding we are going to next week. And gifts for both. Don’t forget to get… KEEP READING »


new server

new server

I moved the site to a new server today, trying to consolidate all of my random websites I have lying around (and save some $$ in the process!) So if anything looks wonky, that’s why. It’s only temporary! Let me know if you notice anything broken… (if you’re seeing this post, that means the nameservers… KEEP READING »
