Met today with a contractor to talk about a new roof and new windows. The roof is really bad and must be replaced soon, and the windows are oldoldold and are not energy efficient. That's going to be a hefty chunk of change, but worth it since our utility bill was nearly $200 one month! It is VERY cold here, yet we keep the ol' thermostat at 60 degrees, wear sweaters and drink a lot of alcohol.

Earlier this spring, I signed up OC for soccer. The first practice is tonight. She is SO excited. I guess this means it's official: I am a soccer mom. Oy vey! I can't believe it. Now just let me find my SUV and my travel cocktail shaker and work that stereotype....

I am bored with this blog's design. I bought a new URL but need to find a web host and start designing a new site. Trouble is, I don't know much about how to design a functioning blog. I need to learn about CSS and how to use interactive coding. I know there are people out there who design blog templates and headers and things, but I AM a graphic designer - albeit sans the proper equipment at the moment - and I want to do it myself!

Witness: Creative Frustration.

Harrumph. Bah humbug. And razzberries.

I can't really devote much time to it right now because of other pressing issues that need attention. Nothing exciting, just crap that needs to get done which means I can't spend time on the redesign of this site quite yet.

Meanwhile, I think what I need to do is share more photos and do less whining....starting tomorrow.

Little kid soccer is so fun to watch! I coached a team of 5 and 6 year olds a few years ago, and they were like a pack of wolves going after the ball.

Oh, I hear you on the home stuff. $$$$$ and $. Blech. Can't wait to see your pictures. Chris' 5 and 6 year old soccer years were the cutest of all. Enjoy!

We ought to replace our old windows too. I can feel the temperature drop when I stand near them, and we live in California!

Hey Lady - sorry we played phone tag this morning and that the contractor was there when I called. Aren't you going to get a minivan instead of an SUV?

A former co-worker says, "If I had a blog, I'd use WordPress ".

Know what you mean... I code HTML all day and should have myself a swanky template.. and yet I still use one of the standard ones... because I just don't have the time.

And the LAST thing I want to do when I get home is code HTML.

CSS is not my thing... may the force be with you.
