My first Harmony Remote, I’ll be back.

Last Friday someone who will go unnamed dropped our TV remote on the floor for the final time. Since replacing our carpet with oak flooring several years ago our remotes have been taking a beating. The occasional drop onto the carpet seemed to rarely…

How a 2-minute task turns into an hour long comedy of errors

Why does Everything have to be so difficult? Nothing can be simple, everything has to be an Adventure. My little guy tells me before he leaves this morning that he would like to have his new Iron Man pillow case washed today so he can use it tonight…

Up, Down, Touch the Ground

I mentioned before that I would be coaching my daughter’s spring soccer team . I didn’t really go into this spring planning on coaching, but they needed another coach and I thought I might be useful. I was a bit nervous about it though, as I’ve…

We've nearly almost completely maybe made up our minds to move south

The last couple of weeks may have been the proverbial straw. Between the freezing cold, the damned snow, the sleet, the flu, the (bad word!) heating bill, the flu and just being locked up indoors all day… we’ve about had it with our beloved…
