Pieces and Parts

Miss Muffin is turning out to be a pretty good guitarist. She really seems to enjoy it and I’m always impressed when I think about how far she’s come since her first lesson. Read the rest of this entry »

Keeping Busy

I’ve been keeping busy lately with online coding classes, personal projects, and starting up my own business. I keep thinking it should all be moving faster, that somehow I should be further along in the process, but I try to give myself a break now and then.

Dre will be done with school for the year soon. She’ll be doing some math over the summer break, a whole different story. Believe it or not come July I’ll be the mother of a teenager. Scary!

Leaving My Mark

PromoPens

Maybe my pens would look like these

I’m working on setting up my own web design/development business and one of the things I’ve spent some time looking into is how to get the word out about my services. Obviously I’ll be setting up a professional website, a well as twitter, facebook, and LinkedIn profiles. Business cards are also a given, but I’m still looking for something else.

Life in 2015…

It’s hard to believe that we’re almost to the 1/4 mark of 2015. Lots of changes at home, including a move. Less change on the school front, still no money to finish. We’ve had wild weahter with temps in the mid 50s one day and the teens the next. Icestorms. Snowstorms. TTU actually cancelled classes for an entire week something they had never done in their 100 year history. I learned to play minecraft. I’ve read a few good books, I should probably blog them.

Squeaky Clean

Boutique soaps, handcrafted soaps, spa soaps they seem to be everywhere. Seriously, until I worked at Bath & Body Works I had no clue that the soap market had gotten so fancy. I picked up a few awesome soaps at work but I’m almost out now.

The other day I stumbled upon the molton brown soap brand which comes in a variety of unique scent combinations. I’m tempted to order some as soon as my bank account rebounds from our latest move.

Global Understanding

TTU from Tucker StadiumWhen I first discovered Tennessee Tech University and the lovely little town of Cookeville I really had no idea how diverse the population was. Truthfully we were here close to six months before I realized that Tech’s international outreach had populated the town with people from every part of the planet. Read the rest of this entry »
