My daughter knows me well

Got an email from my middle daughter.  You know, the drop dead gorgeous, super smart, and generous one.  She sent me a photo showing the ideal car color for me.  And she was right.  If that pink car had been a small station wagon it would have been the perfect car.  Pink is far better than green.  Perhaps it is time to think about a custom paint job.  But I am too cheap–can’t imagine spending 1000 dollars or more on a car paint job.   

Just think of all the things one can do with a thousand dollars.  I can and probably will start my new business “Doggie Bags and Dragon Cats” for less than 1000 dollars total.  I could spend a week in Portland, shopping at Powell’s books and having beer at all the wine bars.  How about an extravagant long weekend in Catalina.  Or plane tickets to Europe.  Or getting a new front yard by having 10 cubic yards of compost delivered onto our driveway.  A new garage door opener to replace the broken not-working opener.  150 bottles of wine.  Or very boring, about one third of the property tax bill.  Sigh….guess it is time to buy that lottery ticket.



Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
