Welcome to Esther!

I’m a Mémé! Oth­er­wise known as a grand­moth­er :-) My baby girl had a baby girl on Sun­day, Sep­tem­ber 11. Lit­tle Esther is absolute­ly beau­ti­ful, of course — she looks a lot like her moth­er did as an infant. Both Mom­ma and baby are healthy. I’m for­tu­nate enough to be in Oma­ha with them for […]

Addition: Task Card Template

I’ve updat­ed the arti­cle on our card sys­tem and added a Word doc­u­ment that has blank task cards, to help peo­ple make their own cards. That has been request­ed by sev­er­al dif­fer­ent peo­ple over time, and I final­ly found the orig­i­nal Word doc­u­ment, which made it eas­i­er to do so. I’m con­sid­er­ing fur­ther updates to that […]

Accessibility

When some­one asks, “Is (X place) acces­si­ble?” the answer is “no” if there are any stairs involved in get­ting there. It does­n’t mat­ter if every­thing inside X is on one lev­el but there are three “lit­tle” steps at the front door, or “just one flight of stairs out front.” Those “lit­tle” steps aren’t so little […]

What is the first thing you see when you walk in your house?

The NaBloPo­Mo prompt for today: What is the first thing you see when you walk in your house? Right now, the first thing any­body sees is Sam’s desk. No, that isn’t pre­cise­ly right. If you’re look­ing straight ahead at the wall, you see a col­lage by Katie, which is much lovelier.

How do you feel when you return home at the end of the day?

The NaBloPo­Mo prompt for today: How do you feel when you return home at the end of the day? I’m not sure I should have answered this one, as I doubt that my answer will be in sync with the intent of the ques­tion. I don’t leave home every day to go to work, or leave home […]

Fall Cleaning

It has to be fall clean­ing because it’s Sep­tem­ber, right? I haven’t done spring clean­ing at any time since we’ve lived in this house, hon­est­ly. I haven’t been able to do it. But between a new pain spe­cial­ist who isn’t all the way on the oth­er side of metro Atlanta (who actu­al­ly lis­tens to me […]

That A/C thing

Appar­ent­ly, the fil­ter for the unit is miss­ing, and the coils need to be cleaned. There’s no obvi­ous sign of mold/mildew, but Sam says that fresh air is com­ing into the bed­room via the unit, and our neigh­bors on that side have been burn­ing some­thing in their back­yard. I found the web­site for the manufacturer, […]

I’m Allergic to Our Bedroom

More specif­i­cal­ly (I hope), some­thing in it. Not Sam, hap­pi­ly, but every time I go in there, I’m all stuffed up with­in a few min­utes. We keep that room closed and have a win­dow a/c unit in there because the house a/c just does­n’t keep up so well. I’m won­der­ing if there’s some­thing about the […]

Yay! and Boo!

The good news: we’re final­ly done with the water boil­ing! It’s a good thing, too. The stores are all out of bot­tled water. The bad news: the girl has a nasty migraine :-( She was sup­posed to leave Fri­day after­noon for the week­end, and it looks like that may not hap­pen. I hope she does­n’t have […]
