Binge Booking

For the last month I've been wanting to write a post about my new found obsession with audio books.  It wasn't until a few minutes ago that I saw the title to a Huffington Post article ("Stop Binge-Watching and Start Binge-Reading") that I knew I had the perfect title for the post and just decided to make the time and write it! So yeah, audio books.  They are awesome!  It has actually become sort of an addiction.  When I get in the car first thing I do isn't check my mirrors ... it isn't Read more [...]

Top 12 Sad Faces of Little Lady

Mystery $?%& Light Switch

You know how one of the first things you do when moving into a new house or apartment is check out all the outlets to make sure they work and to also check and see which light switch toggles which outlet? Well I am here to report that after 2.5 years living in and just a few short months shy of saying farewell to our San Antonio abode ... I still don't know what that $?%& switch does ... ugh. And to make things worse, this is probably one of the most trafficked switches in the house. Read more [...]
