Beautiful California Posted on Dec 24, 2018, 2:12 am
I had to travel for work this past week. But if you have to travel for work AND family, I suppose Lake Tahoe and the California coast are not bad places to go. Pictures from my California this week include a city, Lake Tahoe, ag fields (ok, I cheated with someone else's video), and the Pacific Ocean. California is quite beautiful!

A Stone Girl Blog First Posted on Dec 18, 2018, 3:12 am
But you know what else Iím going to do? Something Iíve never done before. Iím going to post a picture of myself.

It Takes a Village to Help a Mom Posted on Dec 17, 2018, 1:12 am
It takes a village to help a mom. I'm thankful for my village.

Tis the Season Posted on Dec 13, 2018, 2:12 am
As my lapse in blogging may have tipped you, the competing demands of the season have caught up with me. Blogging has lagged. Multi-tasking has increased. Spaghetti is being served. Repeatedly.

A Pearl Harbor Day Anniversary Posted on Dec 7, 2018, 3:12 am
It's Pearl Harbor Day. It also would have been my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. Some words and pictures from my visit to Pearl Harbor a year after my father, a WWII Navy veteran, died.

Are root canals contagious? Posted on Dec 6, 2018, 3:12 am
Argh! It's 23 minutes after midnight. Technically missed a day. Oh well. Today's PSA is - stay away from me until my root canal is final and my tooth is filled this Friday. I may be contagious.

I'm a Self-Destructive Idiot Posted on Dec 5, 2018, 2:12 am
People with sensitive stomachs should not be allowed to combine random food items when exhausted.

A Pandora Introduction Posted on Dec 4, 2018, 2:12 am
Tonight, for the first time in a long while, I looked at the list of songs and artists I chose to seed my Pandora station. Like my blog introduction, I feel my Stone Girl station is still a fairly good representation of me. What songs, which musical artists, seed the music station in your life?

Hangnails and Single Motherhood Posted on Dec 3, 2018, 2:12 am
My hangnail for the last week has been a temporary bout of single working motherhood while Mike was out of town for work...Iíve told him before, I try and teach the kiddos not to say, ďI canít.Ē Especially if they havenít really tried to master whatever challenge is in front of them. Say, ďItís hard.Ē Or, ďI need help.Ē But donít just say you canít. This is a very tough lesson for me...
