On the Agenda: Teen Angst.

I got a personal calendary agenda thing! It’s purple and CUTE and named after Positano. (Here’s big blog stepping in to tell you why that appealed to me so strongly.) Also, every single page inside is more adorable than the last. I can’t wait to ruin it all by writing all over it with my…

Last week before Louisiana!

And it was, mostly, a good one! Our shopping is finished, our haircuts are new, my to-do list is done (except for the biggie, going through our 2013 medical reimbursements, which I really don’t want to touch), and we’ve eaten just about all of the perishable goods.

Novelty

The water is off in the condo today. We were alerted yesterday by means of a note attached to our door. There wasn’t much explanation, just that some unnamed somebody would be working on a water line somewhere in the vicinity of the apartment. It’s kind of fun, turning the faucet on and seeing nothing…
