Too soon?

I decided to get a fake tree this year so why wait? I’ve always had a real tree before but they need to get watered every day and I’m traveling too much right now to ask a friend to come do it that often. I actually was still going to wait a little longer to […]

PSA – backup your files regularly

I got home from work last week (been away Mon-Thurs almost every week this summer) to find my hard drive dead. I had a blue screen with the error “STOP: c0000221 Unknown Hard Error \SystemRoot\System32\ntdll.dll” and could not even boot in safe mode. I ran the diagnostics and got the error “Error Code 0F00:0244 Msg: […]

Personal Finance

I read this article by Suze Orman the other day and it really made me take stock of my finances. Besides that, it feels like everyone I know is buying houses recently while I continue to waste money on rent. Not that I even know where I’d want to buy a house at this point […]

it’s beginning to look a lot like…

Got my Christmas tree up yesterday, just in time for snow today!  I actually did have to brush snow off my car very early Sunday morning too, but this snow is sticking around on things besides cars.

crafts / Christmas

This past week I’ve been catching up on some knitting and sewing I’ve been meaning to do for a while. I really haven’t done much of anything in the way of crafting in several months. I travel so much for work that I’m rarely home and then have so much other stuff to get done […]
