Simple Life: It’s Just Too Much

August 21, 2012

Depending on your definition of “too much stuff”, I’d posit the following: We all  have too much stuff. It’s a side-effect of modern living, really.  There are a bunch of reasons for it (accessibility and pressure among them), in fact.  We live, we consume.  It’s not just typical, it’s expected. Take a look around. Right now.  Right where […]

Simple Life: The Best App is Life

August 19, 2012

There are a ton of things out there that can help you get simplified, folks. From mobile apps to browser add-ons to services that remember birthdays for you so you don’t have to.  We’re talking a multitude of little programmed bits of goodness, here. And I’ve tried a lot of them. (This is me admitting […]

Simple Life #1 — Stuff.

August 16, 2012

 Tell the truth, now… How many of you, just looking at the picture of all the clutter, had the insane urge to order a dumpster or light a match and walk away? ::raises hand:: I don’t know about y’all, but seriously cluttered spaces make me feel like I’m choking. Sometimes, even literally.  I have allergies to dust […]

Pickle Proud

July 26, 2012

My grandma was an awesome lady. She taught herself to sew (and made me a bunch of clothes and toys, too), grew an incredible garden, and made the best dill pickles on the planet.  She was an avid garage-saler, travelled extensively with my grandpa, and was tough as nails.  (There may have been a few […]

Maybelle Zine is ready!

July 19, 2012

Hey folkses — I’ve been a little quiet this week while gearing up for a 24-hour zinemaking challenge called the 24 Hour Zine Thing, aptly enough.  In the challenge, you write, layout, and produce an entire 24+ page zine (or independent, self-produced magazine, for the unaware) in just 24 hours. Yes, it’s a crazy endeavor.  And it […]

FF: Elizabeth’s A Giant Sloth

July 13, 2012

Y’know how I said that, this week, I was going to hit the gym at least twice? That I was committed, and that I’d scheduled in Tuesday and Thursday, come hell or high water? Uh.  Yeah.  About that…. Tuesday, I came down with some kind of stomach bug. Stomach bug doesn’t even really describe the […]

FF: Tales of Theresa’s Double Jointedness

July 13, 2012

Let’s talk exercise clothing for a minute, shall we? When I started this little adventure into fitness, I consulted the ever-wise Elizabeth as to where to start on my road to health.  She had all sorts of information on different types of exercises, gyms, etc…  We made our little pact to be workout buddies from […]

Fitness Friday: The Slacker Report

July 6, 2012

Miss Theresa’s feeling a little under the weather today. So y’all are stuck with just me.  And, let’s be honest, I’ve not got a lot to report. See, last week was my Birthday Week, as I mentioned…uh…last week.  I’m one of those that believes strongly in the power of birthdays to be, well, birthdayish, and that […]

FF: Elizabeth’s Course-Correction

June 29, 2012

  I’ve mentioned that my (expanding) behind hasn’t seen the inside of a gym in quite a while. And before I get all excusey and apologetic, I have to say:  I’m not all that sorry.  Petulant, I am. The fact is:  right now, in the summer, even with its four-billion-degree temperatures and often-blinding pollen counts […]

June 27, 2012

 It’s my birthday. For most people, I think birthdays are largely about cake. Don’t get me wrong.  I like the cake.  And the week-long celebration of making it through another year without being hit by a bus.  (Did I mention I’m a clutz?) There’s a bit of introspection that goes along with birthdaying once you […]
