Jean, I really hear you about the books. We packed many of the books first -- that's one aisle in the garage.

Suzanne, there might be a point at which it's impossible. You could be there.

Mark, you're right that packing -- and deciding what to keep -- does take away reading, but I seem to be reading faster now, so I haven't lost as much as I feared. Don't move if you don't have to!

I hear you, Dean. You have my admiration for being able to do it again after seven months! I haven't even moved yet, and I'm saying "Never again," too.

Karen, you have my sympathy. I'm trying to only pack what we love, too; my problem is that I find various levels of like are confusing me.

by Kris Neri If you read by March 2nd blog (Is it perfect enough), you know we’d been getting ready to put our house on the market. We did list it, and now we’re in escrow. Actually, this is our... Continue reading

Good for you, Elaine. Keep 'em guessing.

By Kris Neri I'm skeptical about psychological testing. Tests seem to reduce complex beings to a spot on a grid. It's not psychology itself that I take issue with, just testing. Tests I've taken seem to capture legitimate parts of... Continue reading

Sandi, I think I'm all three types as well...sigh. I'm going to have to come up with something like quilting to reduce my perfectionism, but it'll have to wait until after I sell my house. Until then I'll be obsessive cleaning, I suspect.

Oh, Mark, how I envy your ability to do that. I need to cultivate it.

by Kris Neri with the Femmes Fatales How perfect is perfect enough? Theoretically, there are words that can’t take modifiers. By definition, they mean that something is complete. Take the word “unique.” Oh, sure, we do modify it. We say... Continue reading

Lucky you, Mark. You can walk right by those chocolate hearts, although I've heard of lots of people buying them for themselves.

Love it, Ellie. I once heard of a family that reversed Christmas and New Year's for the after-Christmas clearance.

by Kris Neri with the Femmes Fatales What does Valentine’s Day mean to you? For some, who are happily committed, it’s the most romantic day of the year. Yet cynics often regard it as a fake holiday started by the... Continue reading

Oh, Kate, I feel your pain!

Deb, without living in a place where it keeps coming, I do appreciate that feeling of being in a prison. Sometimes the heat of Arizona summers feels like that.

Keenan, I imagine that living in Alaska, you have to have a love-hate relationship with snow. I admit I've chosen to live in a place where it doesn't keep coming, just falls now and then.

Mark, I always thought the best part of living in Southern California is that you can find snow in the mountains if you want it, but don't have to live with it if you don't.

Susan, I can certainly understand your fear of driving in snow. Those little moments when the car slips and you don't know when the wheels will get traction again put my heart in free-fall, too! Love the story about your dad needing to finish plowing in time for you to open gifts!

by Kris Neri with the Femmes Fatales I love it when it snows. I love the beauty of the flakes floating down, and especially, the hushed quality that seems to settle over the landscape during a snowfall. It never fails... Continue reading

J.A., I'm so glad that you didn't flood or lose power during Harvey as well! And yay for another person who doesn't eat pumpkin -- I had no idea there were so many of us in this minority. I'm also grateful for my love of reading. I don't know how people live without it.

Deb, those sound like really great things to be grateful for! Bringing chocolate chip cookies after surgery is surely the mark of a true friend.

I'm glad your family is okay, too. I've always thought fire had to be the worst of the disasters. And it's great to know your mom doesn't like pumpkin pie, too.

Susan, those are good gratitudes. I agree about the small joys. I think they keep us sane. And yay for another person who doesn't eat pumpkin pie!
