Fri, 15 Oct 2010 18:22:48 GMTI am having a Stampin' Up! open house tonight to let people check out all the new stuff the company has for card making, scrapbooking, and other projects (like decals for home decorating). This is partially to help me make a sales goal by the end of October (I am close!). Obviously you all aren't here in SF to attend (but if you live close and are free tonight, hit me up!), but if you are interested at all, please check out my website and especially the Clearance Rack (you can access it through the Shop Now link - you have to go through my website to get preferred pricing) - there is a huge sale going on with clearance items until October 18. I've bought tons of ribbon and corduroy buttons...they keep adding new stuff, too.
Wed, 28 Jul 2010 19:55:15 GMTI'm a Stampin' Up! demonstrator again! They had a fabulous deal for ex-demos who wanted to sign back up and I couldn't resist. The post card came the day before I went to a workshop - it was like serendipity. I had been thinking about getting back into stamping just for the social factor and creativity. When I went to the workshop all the excitement I had in doing this stuff before Jack was born came back. I was like OH YEAH - I used to have hobbies! Anyway, it was so much fun and the company has fixed a lot of the things that I found annoying previously (and people can now order online from me!!!).
Tue, 15 Jun 2010 20:39:27 GMTThere is a deal going on until Thursday where you can get 50% off a family pack of tickets to Coyote Point Museum in San Mateo. Check it out:
Tue, 01 Jun 2010 17:58:15 GMTJoe's work schedule has changed twice in the last week or so. It drives me nuts! I updated our visitation calendar and notified our daycare provider the first time and now that all has changed completely. I hope he gets a permanent job some time soon so Jack's schedule doesn't have to change with the seasons like this. It's crazy!
Tue, 20 Apr 2010 21:56:16 GMTFor the newer crowd - I have a few filters that keeps some of my heavier stuff out of the way. Let me know if you want to be included on any of them or if you'd like to be removed if you are currently on them. I know sometimes I refer to some stuff vaguely in my unfiltered posts and that might be annoying, but I also don't want to trigger anyone.
Sun, 18 Apr 2010 22:38:50 GMTAre you on Facebook and will you be my neighbor on Treasure Isle and/or Tiki Farm? I know...but it's actually fun!
Thu, 25 Mar 2010 17:44:56 GMTI have a new article up on savings.com and would much appreciate comments over there!
Tue, 09 Mar 2010 22:16:28 GMTLots of stuff going on lately. Jack is potty training, David got a new job (he starts tomorrow!), we bought a new car (Honda Civic). I've been busy writing all over the place and work is busy, too. I'm going to BlogHer in August in New York and excited. Another busy year!
Mon, 08 Mar 2010 20:31:05 GMTHey Bay Area folks, go here and get 50% off a membership at the Oakland Zoo!
Wed, 11 Nov 2009 18:20:28 GMTI faxed in my withdrawal from college. I'm a quitter once again (this is the third time I've quit college in the last decade). I feel so good about the decision! It was causing more stress and not really doing any good. I may go back and take some online classes through community college but we will see. I have no motivation to go. I don't need a degree, I don't have a career goal other than to keep working/making money, and I don't want to spend time on school when I could be spending time on my family.
Fri, 30 Oct 2009 19:20:25 GMTI'm feeling better. I think the break from school has been great for me. I met with a counselor earlier this week and that went well, too. One of the most helpful things was filling out the depression assessment. There are around 10 questions and the scale for each is 0-3. I marked three for all but two...I didn't realize until then that things had gotten so bad. Honestly, in a lot of ways depression is more "comfortable" for me so it's difficult to notice when it hits. I know how to feel depressed - it is way more foreign for me to feel happy.
Fri, 16 Oct 2009 19:06:03 GMTGah, I'm still losing it. Thankfully I was able to push school off a month and we'll see if I'm ready to return by then. Jack is on the mend so I have at least part of my brain back. I'm starting to transition some of my old duties at work and get into my new position. These are good things...
Tue, 22 Sep 2009 22:54:53 GMTI'm done in. The stress of school and work and the busy summer social calendar have really exhausted me. I have decided I'm gonna hide out for a while so that I can get through the rest of this semester without totally going insane. I need time to myself. I need time with Jack and David. I need to lay low for a while on everything else.
Tue, 08 Sep 2009 04:29:50 GMTYesterday was the one year anniversary of my first date with David. We celebrated on Friday by going back to Clementine (although it's now called Chapeau!) and it was awesome. It's so amazing to look back at the past year and just how wonderful it has been. I find it amazing that I can say that when I think of all the craziness of the last year, but it really has been fantastic!! I am totally in love with this man and so glad to have him in my life. Yay!
Mon, 31 Aug 2009 17:12:05 GMTWanna help me out? I'm looking for a few parents to join my SF Savvy Source group and get conversation rolling for our launch this week. It would involve signing up for the site and starting a conversation thread on some parenting topic or local-related thing. Easy, right? Hardest part is getting this done before tomorrow.
Sat, 22 Aug 2009 19:40:32 GMTHey peeps! I bought my own domain name and moved my parenting blog over to Ewokmama.com. I hope you will all stop by, check it out, and leave a comment or two. Oh and if you subscribe to the feed, you'll want to change that URL!
Thu, 30 Jul 2009 17:45:00 GMTI got my grades for my first two classes and got 99% for both! Wooohooo! I'm proud!
Wed, 08 Jul 2009 17:15:50 GMTI'm a planner, always have been. I plan everything, even conversations (and then I compare the results with the plans because it's interesting to me).
Fri, 03 Jul 2009 14:46:40 GMTI'm pretty sure I'm going to quit school again. At least, I am fed up with fucking University of Phoenix. Three times now in 6 weeks I've had to argue with the damned teachers over my grades. Earlier this week I argued with one professor over my grade because I got docked points on an assignment for something that is based on his preference. I searched everthing on that freaking website and then I searched the internet and there is nothing supporting his assertion that I should have included subheadings in my short essay. I pointed out that he is subtracting points for something that he did not state was a requirement of the paper formatting and that I could find no documentation anywhere suggesting that I use subheadings in this situation (the assignment is maybe FIVE paragraphs and he needs it broken down into subheadings??). I asked him to point out to me where it says this is required or even suggested. He couldn't back up his claim but he also didn't give me my points back. Bastard. This is not even an English or Communications class. It's a "how to take classes online" basically. He is docking ME points because he has trouble reading a fucking short essay.
Mon, 22 Jun 2009 17:08:28 GMTI did pretty much nothing all weekend and it was fucking fabulous! I don't know when the last time I did that was. After Joe picked up Jack on Saturday I just hung out by myself (David went to Tahoe to help his friend Joshua move) chatting online and drank a bit of wine. Later in the evening Dave's friend Andy and I got some crepes for dinner and then went to see an Irish folk band called Culann's Hounds (they totally rock, too). They were SO AWESOME. Who knew that playing an accordian could be so hot??? I so want to see that band again. I want to take everyone I know! Amy, especially you. I know you'd fucking love it.
Mon, 15 Jun 2009 22:42:50 GMTI've got a nasty nasty cold. I'm trying to ignore it and carry on as much as I can but I don't think the cold likes that very much. The plane ride home from Vegas made it so that I can't hear very well out of my left ear. Every time I laugh it sounds more like a cough because my lungs are so crunchy. I'm taking prescription sudafed and while the box says non-drowsy I'm VERY MUCH drowsy. I'm nearly falling asleep at my desk and I'd go home except that I can't drive like this! Also, I have so much work to do from being out late last week (one day due to cold, one day due to Vegas).
Tue, 09 Jun 2009 23:15:22 GMTI'm so fucking stressed today!!!! Guh, I need an outlet for this crap. Anyone have any suggestions?

Tue, 26 May 2009 22:50:31 GMTI regret enrolling in school. I'm already overwhelmed and today is only the first day! I guess I didn't realize that there would be so many posting requirements for the forums and so many freaking assignments every single week. Also I apparently have to interact with people a whole lot more than I expected. Oy.
