Re: Reading recommendations for 12 year old boy

Rick Riordan has a couple of great series, including the Percy Jackson series and the Red Pyramid series. Of course, there's always the Harry Potter novels. The Sisters Grimm are another great series.

Re: Countertop / No Countertop

But, I told DH it will take me six months to recover enough to do another project.

We've tried to do one a year (major or minor), and that pace feels a exhaustive. 6 months sounds perhaps a little soon.

Re: the difference between here & FB

This is a self selected group of somewhat like minded people.

Oh, ha, yes, this is probably why I don't get The Facebooks or whatever the kids these days are using.

Re: Countertop / No Countertop

Lowe's assures me there will be no more problems. We'll see.

I really have come to hate home improvement projects, and really, none of ours have even been major ones.

Re: Speaking of paperwork*

Why would you run a phone past contract time unless you want the flexibility to switch companies?

That, plus I just don't even pay attention to when it's time for a "free upgrade" - I just soldier on until the phone quits, [more]

Back To School Shopping

It's almost that time of year! I don't think we have many newbies around these days, but just in case I am going to rehash some ideas for saving money.

Admittedly, I'm a little OCD and good at minding the details, so some of the above can [more]

Things I am currently struggling with

1) Eating a healthy breakfast. I am just not hungry until I get to work, and then I usually dive right in (so what I eat needs to be inhaled quickly and sometimes in a meeting or while I'm on my way to someone's desk). I know I've posted about it [more]
