We're all voting for the same person, so why are we fighting?

We're all voting for the same person, so why are we fighting?
I spent the past weekend with my family. We’re all voting for Hillary Clinton. Some of us are “raging liberals.” That’s a direct quote. Some of us were reluctant Hillary supporters who turned the corner toward “enthusiastic” after the Democratic National Convention. Some of us would certainly be voting Republican, if the Republican nominee were... Read more »

Happy Lace Anniversary, Hammervision!

Cagney & Lacey
It’s Hammervision’s 13th wedding anniversary today. Because we’re becoming my parents, we don’t buy each other gifts anymore for our anniversaries. Instead, we’re remodeling a room. That’s called adulting. (Except he pulled a fast one and *did* enroll me in a candy making class. I’ll post the results, which will surely be hilarious failures.) But I... Read more »

I was reading Lainey Gossip this morning at breakfast, as one does, and one of her posts got me thinking–who does have the perfect celebrity relationship?

I hugged every last one of my possessions and all I got was this VERY TIDY house
I wrote on Facebook a few weeks ago that John and I were in the process of KonMari-ing our house. I had been thinking about doing it for a long time. I’d had a sample of the book (The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up) on my Kindle for months. But I kept putting it off... Read more »

Summer Movies So Far: See It or Skip It?

Summer Movies So Far: See It or Skip It?
We’re already into July and it’s been a while since I’ve posted any movie reviews.  That’s not to say that I haven’t been going to the theater.  Far from it.
