Living half a life

It can be hard to do what we dream. Hard because it's new. It's different to us. When we do new things we can look silly, people doubt us, we fall on our butts, we embarrass ourselves, we look incompetent, etc., etc., etc. But even if you end up looking silly, losing friends, stuttering your … Continue reading Living half a life


This is it. 101 posts on this blog. (Side note: is it 101st? or 101th? because they both sound ridiculous.) Anyway, it is an exciting milestone to have "published" so many posts. I feel like I should give a 101, or mention how when I hit 99 I thought of "99 Bottles of Beer on the … Continue reading 101

The Brit Diet Revisited and the New Diet

So this is kind of sad. I had to read my own blog to remember what I've posted about being sick/recovering; when I reread my "BRIT diet" post I realized quite quickly what BRIT really stands for: Broth, Rootbeer popsicles, Italian Icees, and Tea (in particular peppermint tea, my favorite). Sounds like the best clear liquid diet … Continue reading The Brit Diet Revisited and the New Diet

Letter Scrambler: EPOTPROTY

Today as I did a word scrambler I noticed that the same letters that spell "Prototype" also spell "Pretty Poo". That, I think, explains a lot. I also noticed the latter first. That, I think, also explains a lot.

Facing the facebook facts! It’s snowing!

It all started as a beautiful, but windy, sunny day on Tuesday 4/14. I don't know why, but I find it hilarious that the weather app says it's dreary. ~Nichole Then, the storm came in. It has been snowing pretty consistently since it started yesterday. Fact from Facebook: It has snowed more in spring this … Continue reading Facing the facebook facts! It’s snowing!

More Trouble…

I really want to name one of my children Trouble. Another will be Random. I think the third (triplets of course!) will be Mischief. Also, these will be their first names, so when they're asked if Trouble (or Random, or Mischief) is their middle name they can say, "No, Trouble is my first name, I go … Continue reading More Trouble…

Note to Self

Record my giggles. Get a player with a motion detector. Hide in rafters at EA Maxis before I leave. Bwa ha ha ha ha!

This Is Me

Video game developer, writer, editor, blogger, mathematician, family member (sister, daughter, granddaughter, aunt, cousin, niece), friend, crocheter, reader, essential oil wellness advocate, pseudo artist, shower singer, follower of Christ, miserably flawed, eternally grateful for Christ's atonement. FUN! Making other people smile; making them laugh, especially when they've been crying. Mischievous, witty, horrible speller (Thank you … Continue reading This Is Me

I don’t understand…

I don't understand, but... whatever. Yes, whatever makes me happy. Let's go with that. 🙂

I’m not the only one!

Aw (said with a sigh), January = snow = cold. Which is perfect if you like being cold and snow and January. Well, I don't. I pretty much hate everything about it and I'm not alone. In fact, I fit right in with the 21% of the people that took this survey: What is your favorite … Continue reading I’m not the only one!
