Waking up early

We now have 2 kids. And they've essentially made me question whether I really need sleep, since I seem to function on so very little of it. Today, when my baby woke up to eat at 5am, I thought... maybe I'll just get up for the day. Well, "up" as in laying in bed and...

We bought a house

The only thing more lengthy and arduous that I've experienced has to be pregnancy. This might be because we actually bought a "short sale"... I guess. It's been unclear. And the things that you might expect to cause us problems in buying a short sale were, in fact,...

How ideas happen… and die.

People who paint or draw their own original artwork are the most fascinating people to me. It’s something I can’t comprehend… how you could possibly decide to take that step of putting your paint covered brush on a canvas and hope that image in your head comes to...
