East Coast Earthquake

Virginia earthquake

My sister called in a panic because there was a rare earthquake on the East Coast this week. She says the whole house shook for a really long time and everyone ran out into the street. They have had aftershocks too. But thankfully, they are all OK – no major damage, either.

Hate the New WordPress Dashboard

Although WordPress is free and has a lot of great features, I totally HATE the new dashboard. It used to be fast and easy to log in as an administrator and write a new post. Now it take three times longer to get through the log in process and access the text editor to write a new post. How stupid! Who on earth thought that removing the “new post” button from the dashboard was a good idea?

Laundry Day

August 2, 2011 // Posted in Life, Memories (Tags: , , , ) |  Comments Off on Laundry Day

As a kid in New England, my family lived in a small town with a lot of good people who took family life very seriously. It was one of those “it takes a whole village” kind of places.

Everyone in my neighborhood did laundry on Monday, and although we had electric dryers, a lot of women preferred to hand the laundry out on a clothesline. Tuesday was always dedicated to ironing the clothes that were washed the day before.

It’s funny how these little habits stick with you. I try to do my laundry on Mondays, but if something comes up and I’m too busy, then I make very sure to get the laundry done on Tuesdays. LOL
