It’s More Than Just A Light

July 25, 2012 Unplugged

One of the things I like about Just The Right Things is that I have no idea what I’m going to write about.  Until the second I KNOW. Our Very Excellent Son Sawyer is about to leave us and go to college.  He’s ready, we’re ready.  I know I’m going to miss him so much, […]

Woman Discovers Walking – News at 10!

April 12, 2012 Unplugged

It’s funny how often I “discover” something that’s been right in front of me forever.  That’s what happened when I was shopping yesterday… I was at one of the two large shopping areas in Boulder yesterday – it’s a place I go to at least three or four times a week.  I parked and plotted […]

Spring Cleaning

March 28, 2012 Unplugged

I’ve got a horrid cold and I’m feeling miserable.  I got this cold about two seconds after spring officially started and I got all uppity congratulating myself that I hadn’t gotten sick all winter. Will I ever learn? This cold, like all others, doesn’t actually make me sick.  It just makes me SOUND horrid and […]

A New Year And Sparkly Shoes, Too

January 9, 2012 Unplugged

Happy New Year!  I hope your transition into 2012 has been a smooth one. We’ve been cramming 30 hours of living into 24 hour days as usual, but I’ve been trying to catch up reading my favorite blogs and reducing the huge pile of unread magazines on the coffee table.  I don’t know why I […]

Yes Universe, I’m Listening

November 1, 2011 Unplugged

Sometime you get a Just The Right Thing EXACTLY when you need one…. In life, some days are bad.  Some days are really bad.  And then there’s THOSE days, the ones that make you feel like you’re in quicksand covered in honey and the bees are closing in… When I’m feeling overwhelmed (like that) I […]

It’s Been Better Around Here

October 9, 2011 Unplugged

I’ve been mostly absent from this blog for a while.  I’m going to take the opportunity to indulge myself and tell you why.  (Starting tomorrow I will definitely get back to the business of Just The Right Things.  I promise.) I re-read the post where I mentioned that my dogs, Keela and Boulé, had a […]

Happy Birthday Jon & Megan!

September 24, 2011 Unplugged

Twenty-one years ago today, my little twins, Jon and Megan (not so little now) were born. I wrote last week about Megan and now it’s Jon’s turn.  Jon and Megan’s entrance into the world couldn’t be more different.

Ciao Bella!

September 17, 2011 Unplugged

Next weekend my twins, Megan and Jon, turn 21 and I’m sitting here scratching my head wondering how 21 years went by so quickly. Megan (and Jon) arrived 4 weeks early. Megs came flying into the world, only an hour after we made it to the hospital and you could say she’s been flying ever […]

Thoughts on 9/11

September 11, 2011 Unplugged

The first time, in 1978, I was 19-years-old, traveling through Europe with a backpack and $500 in my pocket. I cried when I saw the statue. The second time was on the morning of September 11, 2001.  I cried […]
