Are you two kidding? Weather like this is why I live in Florida! I grew up going to the beach in South Florida on Christmas, so "White Christmas" has a different meaning for my family. Wouldn't have...

holiday cards

I'm with you. I love sending Christmas cards, but my dad died 3 weeks ago and I just don't have it in me to fake cheerfulness right now. Maybe next year...

My partner when I was in my 20s made me smile every time he walked in the room. I was completely in love with him, but we fought like cats and dogs. Once we split, we got along famously. He remains...

I just put down my beagle of 14 years a month ago. She was the sweetest, most beautiful and loving dog ever.

Now, those first two years were not the easiest, but after she hit 7 or so she...

They said free shipping and no sales tax. Several boards cheaper than $310. Good luck!

I hate purses but tend to need lots of stuff in them, so I've moved to the purse-within-a-purse model. I have a large Land's End tote whose various pockets hold pens/pencils, tampons, notepads, a...

Florida geckos

Lizards are all over Florida. I think your best bet is to make peace with them and let them be. They eat roaches. I have several in my house at any given time (they love my sunny Florida room).

I saw your post title and just knew you lived in Florida! The rain has been crazy, hasn't it? I hate to complain since we've been through such a long drought already, but 3 times a day?! It's sunny...

I work as a professional editor and charge by the hour, not the page. I end up making more that way because my clients make a ton of changes! I started out at $15-20/hour, and can now charge...

I'm so sorry! I was just recently disowned by my father. He left me in a bus station at night in a foreign country where I didn't speak the language. All this because I refused to be belittled for my...

right on!

I agree with mostly all of it. Many people in America refuse to parent. As teachers, we see and complain about it all the time! Finally the rest of society is seeing what we've been seeing for over a...

i agree!

Hate weddings with a passion. Not interested in dressing up, sitting through an (usually) average rubber-chicken meal, not knowing most of the people there. Family weddings aren't much better, but at...

Scott owns testing centers

The only reason Florida Gov. Rick Scott came up with this plan is because he OWNS the drug testing centers where these tests will take place. Sure, he "transferred ownership" to his wife when he took...

I have the same problem and have tried the same things you have. Nothing really works completely. I just had to say that I love your avatar! :p

pinning personal pics

Start a blog or a tumblr. Maybe if you have a flickr or picasa account it might work. I pin pics from my blog and that works. You just need to have a url to attach pics. Good luck!

cuban food

My favorites that always please a crowd are ropa vieja for dinner and tres leches for dessert. The dessert is so popular that they sell it ready-made at Publix now! :D

sewing machine

I bought a 1940s Singer (in a cabinet) on a road trip up the East Coast about a decade ago. I love it, although I'm limited in what I can sew on it (unless I want to keep swapping out feet). Anyway,...

I second the Rays game, but I'd skip the Dali with young kiddos. I went a few weeks ago and *I* got bored. <!--eyebrow-->

I've heard the new children's museum is fabulous.

traveling overseas

Be very careful! After Jan 1 of this year, banks and credit cards started adding whopping fees to any overseas transactions (for some banks, it was almost 10%!!) When in Europe, my clients and I...

In Florida, we keep the thermostat at 80 (82 when we're away) and have ceiling fans in every room that we turn on only when in them. I realize that's probably drastic for most folks, but the energy...

career switching

I started with a 2nd part-time job for a few years in a new field. Loved that and gathered enough clients to make 1/2 my normal salary by moving in with a friend, cutting back on everything, etc...

I loved every minute in Peru. Food was some of the best in Latin America. I just returned from Ecuador, and it made me miss Peru even more (although I'd recommend Ecuador to anyone!)

This was my...
