Track Your Happiness on a Daily Basis

Track Your Happiness on a Daily Basis

Richard recently discovered this site called Track Your Happiness and I really love the idea behind it. Once you sign up they send you email or text reminders twice a day to “track your happiness”. Right in that moment you have to answer a few simple questions about your current activities and state of mind(…)

Is it Fall yet?

Is it Fall yet?

The weather on the Oregon Coast never really feels like what the average person thinks of as “summer.” We get plenty of sun and gorgeous days but it’s always windy and the cool air coming off the ocean makes you pretty much a little bit cold all of the time. I was just telling Richard(…)

I have been seeing Bamboobies breast pads all over the internet and didn’t understand (because I’m a moron) that they are called BAMBOObies because they are made of bamboo.
