Ok. You just made a lightbulb turn on in my head. Duh! when the Seattle drizzle gets to be too much for me, I go to the gym (it's really tiny, with 2 treadmills...at our golf course) and walk on the treadmill there. And there is always some guy (usually my husband...) watching Sports Center on the tv. HOW did I not think of this?!?!? I could totally take my Ipad and plug in my headphones. Game. Changer. And I like to walk outside and breath real air...only ever listen to books on Players I get at the library. A good book, and I will walk 5 miles easy.

Awwww Cathy- I remember when my big boy went to 5th grade camp up at Warm Beach, and there was no such thing as Skype. Ha! Or anything close. And then he went to Leadership camp at Mount Olympus (somewhere on the south side of Mt Rainier....no cell towers....), and I agonized for days. Luckily he is at the UofW and my anxiety has lessened...and you're right, how do the Missionary Mom's do it?!!??!

Serious! How much did you pay for Miss Underwood???? I am so jaded by the prices here in on the Eastside....
Oh brave girl....continue to be strong. I am so lucky my pain is minimal and helped by acupuncture, but my DH struggles constantly. You make my heart break with the vision of you crying in your car. Baby steps is all I can say....baby steps.

Hey Alissa - I tried to comment a few days back,but not sure if it "took" - but I wanted to say I don't know which I love more, your JYC or this project. Maybe I just love your style. Thanks so much for the inspiration. And crush? Nobody come to mind, really. Except...I do have a picture of George Clooney and Brad Pitt sitting together on the set of Oceans, entitled 'Proof that God exists' and I've always said if God really existed (totally tongue in cheek) - I'd be sitting right between them!
Yay! I love that J was there and you have pictures to save the memory. My son taught my daughter to ride her bike (he's 9 years older than her) and I'm so happy I was able to snap some pictures. Go Harper!!!

We downloaded an app called Boost Magic - seems to help a little. Back/hip pain -aughhh! I call it my pregnancy pain - 21 years ago it started. And I swear the spot where I had my epidurals is so sore and achy sometimes. Acupuncture helped my dad with is hip pain....but I just told my husband the other day I may need a new hip!

Excellent and so inspiring, Nichol! I love your sketches - one of my favorite albums is from the class I took from you in 2007 - my favorite photos :)

I can only partly identify...I'm a bookkeeper and I just took on my 4th account - 4 different versions of Quickbooks on 4 very different computers, in 4 very different settings. And for some reason I can't say "no" to my PTA president, so I wear 3 hats at my daughter's school right now. Keeps me a little schizophrenic ;)

ha! I take months-long breaks (not that anyone reads, but it's a good diary/Project Life tool) - I am more ready for the holidays this year than I can remember in a long, long time. Excited to see your inspiration and I already have a bos of crafty fun to take along on Thursday to the in-laws (not that they're boooring) to keep me and my DD busy :)

Ahhh....#4 has been tough for me, and this is his junior year at the U! And I get very little sympathy from my friends/family, since my kid is only 45 minutes away - my boss's daughter is going to school in Germany and my goddaughter is in Hawaii. Doesn't matter, it still means there is someone missing when I do "tuck in". Don't cry!
We just had this conversation the other day...my 21 yo is in college and studying DNA right now. Scares me! Like they've found that smoking affects your DNA. Let alone the flame retardant stuff. And don't get me started on lotion I cringe when I see sunscreen sprayed on babies. Yikes!!! I've just started exploring, but really appreciate this post and am committed!
