Huge List of Activities to do with Kids during Covid-19

I started this document ages ago and have shared it with many friends, family members, and FB forums already. It's compiled from many, many different places: lists on facebook, travel websites, space websites, family websites, school websites. It's broken down into categories for ease of use: The Arts, Books, Celebrities, Coding, Crafts, Disney, Exercise, Food, … Continue reading Huge List of Activities to do with Kids during Covid-19

British Houses

Does anyone else watch perhaps too many British shows and movies and then, seeing houses you recognize from other things, feel at once comforted by them, but then a little later disconcerted because they didn't actually use that particular houses inside for the inside scenes? Is it just me?

Driving=Hands on Fire

I am feeling awful today. All the driving caught up with me. My hands are on fire, I'm super accident prone, and it's had to be a rest day. Fortunately I have a comfy blanket and a Greg to watch Netflix with. We are starting to watch Glee. I had intended to watch this with … Continue reading Driving=Hands on Fire

Downton Abbey Movie!!

Nick and I had a rare afternoon movie date this afternoon. We grabbed a super quick lunch at Torchy’s Tacos, wherein I discovered the joy that is the happy corn side dish (unfortunately it was Nick’s- sorry babe!). Then we headed down to Time Square Cinema for the Downton Abbey movie. We’d bought tickets way … Continue reading Downton Abbey Movie!!

15 movies that have stayed with me…

When I first started this list (three or four days ago), I panicked and couldn't think of any movies I'd seen, ever. Now I'm wishing I could do way more than 15!  So, here are a few lists: Childhood Watcher in the Woods - Bette Davis, spooky house & trees, child possession & kidnapping, aliens, … Continue reading 15 movies that have stayed with me…

Doctor Who is Fantastic!

For a lovely, wonderful three-hour block today, my sister and kids and I watched Doctor Who. It was beautiful. Since she left it's been nothing but soap operas. Apparently my mom only tolerates Doctor Who for my sister.

Date Night!

We are having a fancy dinner tonight! All sushi, all the time. And cocktails. Because it's not a date without cocktails. Well, not an evening date without cocktails in any case. We ordered WAY too much food for ourselves for one night, but sushi does not do well sitting in the car, even in this … Continue reading Date Night!

Now with Bonus Content!

I'm feeling list-y at the moment.  Some things I've done/am doing lately: Finished the CD uploads to iTunes.  Put the CD's in boxes.  Put the boxes in the garage. Nick is taking one to his mom and I'm taking the other to Goodwill.  Then I put all the little games into the newly emptied drawers … Continue reading Now with Bonus Content!

Mental Health Day (a cross-post)

I am starting to think that what I really need is a mental health blog.  Or to combine all my little blogs into one big blog so I can stop repeating myself from different angles.  Who knows. A friend of mine committed suicide this weekend.  We weren’t close lately, hadn’t been for a couple years, … Continue reading Mental Health Day (a cross-post)

Don’t Just Talk About It, Days 13,14, & 15

When I first made my list earlier this month, I had no idea that I'd end up having the kind of week I have scheduled ahead of me.  Monday I have a two-hour webinar for scouts, Tuesday I'm going to spend all day driving to and from Dallas with David, getting his back checked for … Continue reading Don’t Just Talk About It, Days 13,14, & 15
