Oops, I Organized Again

I LOVE my new bookshelves.  In our first little apartment, I had no space for books, just one cheaply made squat bookcase from dear old Wal-Mart.  I had room to display some of my favorite children’s books, but mostly stocked it with chapter books that I had collected but not yet read.  (For more overanalyzing… Continue reading Oops, I Organized Again

A Space to Create

When we moved across the country to San Francisco, I expected to spend about a month unpacking and settling in.  Enjoy my hard-earned summer, and then get down to business.  I figured that by the time July rolled around, I’d be going a little stir-crazy at home and would be more than ready to start… Continue reading A Space to Create

A Work in Progress

As much as it would please me to have a beautiful kitchen worthy of a magazine, what I am really appreciating these days is a real life, working kitchen.  It’s not always clutter-free or spic-and-span or color-coordinated, but it makes this apartment feel like a home. With my new low-residue diet and illeostomy bag, I’m… Continue reading A Work in Progress
