Paint is cheap. This was the advice from a friend of mine in the 80's when I was considering which shade of white to paint my bedroom.  After she scoffed at my choice of a non-color, she said if I was going to take the time, money and effort to make a change that I should put COLOR on the wall...if you hate it, change it - paint is cheap. Hmmm, I don't know...that could be risky...and it's just not done...color? As in "not white, cream, off-white or vanilla"?

I'm confused - and I'm sure I'm not the only one.  Back in my youth food was not as perplexing as it is now.  Breakfast was pancakes & sausage with syrup.  Lunch was probably mac & cheese. For dinner Mom would pop a roast out of the oven and set it by the bowl of steaming carrots and potatoes and we were eating health.  Apparently that is sooo 1970's.

Sounds a bit like a superhero, doesn't it?  Anyone who was stuck raising kids in the 80's who were hooked on the He-Man series knows what I'm talking about.  The shows' creative team wasn't too creative. They would take a characters feature and add OR to the end.  Remember Skeletor, Fakor, Stinkor, Spikor, Panthor or Stridor? ....but I digress. I'm here to talk about your friendly professional who sells houses.

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words.  Oh dear...what, exactly, is my drivers license saying? Looking at the license that just expired I've decided it should be screaming "Did you LOOK in the mirror this morning? "or "What were you thinking with that hair cut?"  Seriously, I'm glad there isn't a website devoted to bad drivers license photos. (There's not, is there?)

I'm told that spring is on its way, but I'm not entirely sure I believe that.  If this past week has been any indicator, we've just entered the next ice age. I expect a Scrat to start darting around my yard looking for the last acorn in the county.  Seriously, even the wooly mammoths don't want to be out wandering around in this stuff.  My not-so-wooly dogs are not so happy at all.  The smaller ones are dancing on icy puppy paths trying to keep no more than two paws on the ground at any one time. Ok...that is kind of funny in a canine-ballerina kind of way.

"Time flies WAY to fast. Charlie is 1 and learning so much by the day and Jaden will be 3 in just a few short months. It's starting to get fun to watch them play and interact together, but time needs to slow down."

You've heard the old adage: "Never go shopping when you're hungry."  I think we can safely expand on that: "Never go shopping after watching Cupcake Wars."

I know they don’t mean to but every child eventually makes their parents look old. Luckily for me, I’m still firmly rooted in denial.
