We went on a long baseball tournament. I sewed a lot of hexagons. BY HAND!


It’s summer y’all. That means I’d rather be outside playing in the garden, running around just to be outside or otherwise occupied. That makes me a shittier than normal blogger! But look! Pictures! of cats! and kids! I went to Memphis. There were kittens. There were nieces! and Monkey! The museum wore us out. It […]


I’ve all but given up my music photography since moving to Michigan. Luckily, I find shows here and there where I can drag my big camera (Canon Rebel) along. Most often lately, I only use my phone camera (iPhone 4S) because it’s so damn handy. When we were on vacation in November I took my […]


  I was super excited to be given the opportunity to try out this cool gadgety gadget. Our family of four sports 3 smartphones and 2 tablets, and we’re looking at another smartphone in the near future. Since we share a data plan, sometimes The Millionaire has to remind us not to go heavy on […]

ONE WEEK, 7 little tiny days and I can get the heck outta dodge. You know why I love vacation? Because I can pretend I don’t live in a tiny, backwards, claustrophobia inducing little town. My imagination turns me into the cool urban dweller I long to be again. There are awesome cities within a […]


For the last several years the Millionaire has traveled on company business over the Thanksgiving holiday. He has been asked to be on-site on Black Friday and Cyber Monday at a client near Philadelphia. This means that he travels on Thanksgiving Day. His company has been flexible enough to allow him to drive on the […]


    In an amazing opportunity I had this Spring, I met Ms. Parham (featured the above eBay Thanks You video) as part of the eBay Parent Panel Summit. That short trip changed my entire outlook about eBay. I thought I was already on top of the world after being selected as part of the […]


I wrote this while still in Memphis  at Gonerfest 9. ” I can’t believe we waited so long to come to gonerfest dumb, dumb, dumb. My mopey days are done. The hoard won and I’m ok with that now. All is well when I’m siting in the back room of the HiTone watching gonerfest on […]
