OK, this is how I want to do Thanksgiving every year

So I politely declined some plans for turkey day because 1) I didn’t feel like traveling and 2) while I can handle 6 kids buck wild on sugar, I need a quicker escape than a trip back from Kent. And also, it just seems like it’s too much of many things except peace and quiet….

Admit it:

you have done this. I have recently. But only in the lead-up to a doctors appointment. And I apologized as soon as I was there, right before I said “oh good, it’s not tuberculosis.” I should never have read Angela’s Ashes. Attention cyberchondriacs: you are not alone.

Bailout-palooza

I hope that some day, we look back on this time hope that we never hear the word “bailout” (or is it/are it 2 words?). Much like I feel about “web 2.0″….well felt about it a few years ago before it kind of became it’s own joke. It is said with irony, usually in the…

In the spirit of appreciating the poor turkeys that are giving their lives

I am going to try the blood donation again today. No antibiotics this time (not that they did me any good). If anything gets me this time, it will be that I haven’t been all too interested in high-iron foods lately. I had to actually write a sticky note to remind myself to eat red…

Half an hour every day makes Heather a shiny girl.

The blog post I had hoped I would write someday. Every day now, I am spending a half hour in front of the light box. I’m not sure if it specifically is working or if it was the detox or some other stuff I am doing (gotta say that the detox was most definitely part of…

Black Friday and Cyber Monday...

sound bad but are totally good (and somewhat inconsequential for me because I am basically done with my Christmas shoppping…I know; don’t hate me). Anyhoo, you can preview deals on these web sites: www.bfads.net www.blackfriday.com gottadeal.com www.cybermonday.com www.bestcybermondaysales.com   (And by posting these here, I get rid of another piece of paper on my desk…I…

Sometimes, when you work from home...

you get stuck on this decision: is this work-related or personal? My work stuff ends up on my desk and my personal stuff ends up on my desk. No right or wrong. It just is. My work “to do” list sits on top of a flyer for a green cleaning service, which is on top…

OK, that was nuts

I don’t think I have ever been sick for 2 months before. I had mono in high school and still went to my prom. As I’ve mentioned, I am one of those people that figures if I can stand and walk, then I can go do stuff, including work, including prom. And perhaps that is…

Song lyrics I heard today

You know how there’s a line in every song that sticks with you? Well, I have one for every song in my playlist…      I ain’t freakin’, I ain’t fakin’ this. Shut up and let me go….hay! Take my hand and we’ll jump out the window. When I’m with you, I feel fine, I…

Further efforts in pursuit of a cure for crazy

You probably know that sunlight is medically necessary. There’s the whole vitamin D thing, but there’s other stuff too. I think that sunlight promotes the growth of sanity. Oh, someone is going to link to an article about this, I am sure. In normal Heather fashion, I don’t really care HOW it works, I care…
