For the Dogs (and Cats)

I think our dog Boo is confused. While moving my office home was an adjustment for me, lately we’ve been noticing that she’s having her own adjustment. Or at least it seems that way. Because James has worked from home for so long, she’s accustomed to sleeping away the day…

Closed Concept

Welcome to the 1000th week of SIP! Not really. But I did find myself losing track of the days last week. What would make me think Monday was Tuesday? Although with the change in routines and living arrangements, I don’t think that’s too hard for any of us to do.…

Not Just A Movie

James and I have succumbed to binge watching. Call it a side-effect of being indoors so much. I was always amazed when people said they were doing that. How did you have the time? I just could not imagine. Yet here we are. Sitting on the sofa. Not only binge…

Danger, Will Robinson!

Architects always design. I don’t care where they are or what they are doing, the wheels keep turning. At the lake – where’s a good place for a house and how best to orient the rooms? At a friend’s home – you know the kitchen would work better if… At…

The Things You See Inside

By now, most of us are in week two or three of our shelter-in-place experience. Working from home for the first time. Having to home school kids. Wondering if day-drinking is considered a hobby. And while the weather here has been relatively crappy, there have been a few days nice…

Not Ready to Snap

Author’s Note: This was written pre-shelter-in-place/social distancing guidelines. I know a lot of us are working from home not by choice. I hope if you are the adjustment hasn’t been too great, and you can find some ideas on how to be successful (as well as some humor) below. We…

Oh Snap!

I would love to meet the marketing genius at LEGO who suggested creating the LEGO Architecture series. Someone needs a raise. Or maybe a smack upside the head! Most years at Christmas and/or my birthday, I’m peeling back wrapping paper to see which LEGO set is underneath. My efforts this…

Corner Office

After working on my own for 3-1/2 years, I finally have an office that I can call my little corner of the world. Literally. At the start of the year, I moved my office home and into our guest room. Or our quasi-guest room. Okay. The room where James’ parents…

Holiday Madness

I received a text from my sister a few days before Thanksgiving to let me know that they had voted, and James and I were hosting Christmas Eve at our house this year. (I mentioned that briefly in last month’s post.) But they voted and somehow forgot to include me…

Hotel Perks (Quirks)

Hotel Perks Quirks I don’t think I travel a lot. I’m certainly not in the realm of those who travel every week for work. But every year I start adding things up and realize I’m moving around a lot more than I think. (As I type this I’m thinking “How…
