Anyone else binge eating in front of the TV?

Anyone else binge eating in front of the TV?

The election, a pandemic and a full moon???? BRING ON THE CHEESY CRACKERS, people. I already ate Jax's sour pumpkins and sent him photographic proof. This is what happens when you leave candy in the house. Sorry, kid, you knew better. I hope you all are doing yoga, meditating and eating from the land. And not, like me, carb-loading like it's an Olympic sport and watching absolute Netflix crap...

What Say You.

I've never had an old school blog before. It's fun. But I don't know what I'm doing. Use the comments on this one and give me your thoughts. Pretty please. - Do you want to be able to subscribe to these little posts? Or just pop over when the spirit moves you? - Should comments be easier? - How do you feel about the longgggg everything-on-one-page scroll or would little clickable boxes be easier...

#ThingsISeeOnMy Hike

Kudos to the woman hiking this morning with her zoom call on speaker phone. I heard her say, "Yeah, guys, I'm sorry, my video isn't working, but I can hear you so go head" as she blew by me up the mountain. She should teach a master class on working from home.

Things no one needs to know but I’m going to tell you anyway.

Things no one needs to know but I’m going to tell you anyway.

1. I am intermittent fasting. I don't really understand what this is or how it works and, like most of my decisions, didn't feel a strong need to research it so just sorta picked a window of time I now eat within. Also, I gave up gluten. For no particular reason other than I like gluten-free bread and am making it a thing. 2. I think Billie Eilish is absurdly talented. I would very much like to...

I Gotta Tell Ya.

I Gotta Tell Ya.

I am greatly enjoying my new No-Facebook life. Less stress, more time, and I rediscovered a little something I used to love to do called READING. You’re like “What? Huh? Like with books?” Yes. I am reading the books. Made of paper. I am reading the books like they’re made of fresh sourdough bread and I just quit Paleo. I can’t get enough. I am carb-loading books. And I’m going full escapism. I...

Peace Out, Facebook. And Welcome.

Peace Out, Facebook. And Welcome.

Welcome to this. Whatever this is.  Thanks for coming. I mean that. If one more person talks about community, I’ll hurl, but that’s what I was missing on the Facebook. Odd since that’s sort of its intended jam, right?  Anywayyyyyyy, I said peace out to Facebook for a lot of reasons, but primarily because Facebook is a time suck to beat all time sucks. With zero value add. So adios,...

No Shame

No Shame

Well, it had to come. Some of you readers have been with me for a while now. You’ve read these random blogs and followed along on Facebook as Jax came home from China, was diagnosed with all the things, and proceeded to grow up into a teenage boy. He’s gone from tricycles to bikes, from building blocks to creating airplanes, from Thomas the Tank Engine to his own You Tube channel. It was bound...

The Answer is No.

The Answer is No.

So we’re homeschooling over here. It’s going really well, I’d say. We have great people, Jax’s anxiety is at an all-time low, he’s happy, he’s inquisitive, and importantly, he’s learning things that are relevant to his 14 year-old-life and skills he’ll use for his future. Yay homeschool. The one weak spot is that he needs more social interaction during the day. He needs “school” friends. I think...

Becca Bought: A Beeswax Wrap of Smugness

Becca Bought: A Beeswax Wrap of Smugness

I am basically an eco-Guru now.  I was turned onto these by my eco-friendly friend. She is really quite a lovely person, but apparently she has been secretly judging my ziploc usage for months now.  One day, her turmoil just bubbled over and she said, “OMG Becca, the storage bags. The petroleum, the chemicals. Why??????” I sort of live under a rock and was all “huh?” So she told me...

Becca Bought: Macrame Prozac

Becca Bought: Macrame Prozac

If I had to pick one product to stand by for eternity, it would be this swing. First of all, it’s darling. We could start and end with its Anthro Free People vibe alone. But those websites would sell it for an amount comparable to your mortgage and this little number is so ridiculously reasonable. You can buy one (or two, like I did!) and not be stuck slurping ramen for the rest of the month....
