As I am occupied with my writing project and zig-zagging through all of the final touches on an article for a collaborative financial eBook, Lexi is keeping a keen eye on things and busily supervising terrorizing me. …hard at work, my editor-in-chief See you all soon-ish! =^..^=

Yesterday Lexi and I ventured to the library together for the first time. As soon as we stepped into the sunniness of the lobby, I felt right at home. Libraries are like the perfect sanctuary—where it is okay to tip-toe about and wander a bit lost before stumbling into different worlds. It is okay to [...]

Dearest Lexi, as your mommy, the things I am not. I am not your chew toy to gnaw on to test-drive pointy little incisors. Nor is my nipple. I am not The Keeper of your stuffed animals. There will be a new rule: if YOU chuck Mr. Blobby into the toilet, YOUR FATHER will fish [...]

Has the weekend arrived all ready? Time seems to evaporate sometimes in our little apartment. Even with trembling barren branches scraping across the bedroom window and the onset of dark gray skies, time is standing still. I love jamming chilly toes into my pale gray slippers or wool socks in the morning. Sipping on Egyptian [...]

A little Halloween munchkin devilry. Hmm, it’s Halloween. What shall I do? I have an idea! I look eerie and spooky- ookie. Now lets see what I need for gathering loot. Dang, this may be a bit unwieldy. …a short time later… Look at the spoils I have harvested. Muahaha. Well done, me. Happy Halloween! [...]

I was awoken at 5:15 a.m. experiencing chills and a raspy cough. And teeny, mealy fists tangled into my neck and hair. I felt like shit and there was Lexi, peeking at me. Grinning and talking her gibberish. Feebly I tried to coax her to lay down and snuggle into my tartan blanket, but all [...]

Child usefulness #37—When Lexi wrecked havoc on my workspace area earlier and found her sonogram photos, which have been misplaced for months. Lexi, among the carnage. Brutal truth: My kid is much more efficient than I am. =^..^= P.S. Between typing and editing this, Lexi started to rouse and I tiptoed away, straight into a [...]

…me, when I was five months preggers

Last night M. and I attempted to replace the control arm on my vehicle to fix a loose ball joint, but it was obvious something had gone terribly awry once he flipped the ignition and an explosive pop! and sickly grinding radiated from behind the tire, which produced a host of problems. Soo, since Lexi [...]

Beanie and her ball. Alexis Skye

Is it weird that I’m laying in bed browsing financial forums on my iPod, with my daughter snuggled peacefully beside me, napping. All of my friends tip-toe around the subject of personal finance. They find it a wee uncomfortable and pretty snooz-y, and yet I can spend hours devouring material and crunching numbers in my [...]

Thursday evening, M. and I spontaneously decided we wanted to celebrate our daughter’s first birthday while camping by the ocean. We compiled a rough budget, and by four-thirty a.m. on Saturday morning, our rusty-orange Caliber was stuffed with gear and we were cruising five hundred miles to Cape Ann, Massachusetts. Our Anticipated Budget For Our [...]

Imagine me – the ‘not-too-savvy with tech-y computer-y stuff’ lady — switching web hosting yesterday. Ohh boy. Hopefully nothing was flubbed during the transition. If you notice any site inconsistencies, please let me know. Ok, now a confession. My productivity this week has been horrendous. My daughter Lexi has just started with separation anxiety. Meaning, [...]
