The Pressure Cooker, Grace Under Pressure, and Why I Am Running for State Representative in District 19

The Pressure CookerIn today’s partisan climate there are tremendous forces of pressure being applied to all of our political leaders.  In New Mexico, we need leadership that demonstrates grace under fire.

"I was thinking evenings after the dinner rush has settled in, of course we will be losing daylight soon, but I think our neighborhood is pretty well lit. We could meet up at the Whittier Community Center, or somewhere else if it is more convenient."

It's Parenting Fail Monday!!!

Morning Fix--Happy 2010 Peeps!

Posted on January 1, 2010 at 3:33am 6 Comments

As I write this is it about 3:15 in the morning and I have not gone to bed yet, but I did celebrate the new year in the company of friends, indulging in champagne at midnight and some fan-friggin-tastic ritualistic shots of brandy with sugar and coffee coated limes (it was pretty fun) and giving the kids sparkling cider and letting them crash wherever they fell.

I began this decade living in St. Louis, and am ending it back home in Albuquerque. When I started this decade I was hoping to go to law school, and I still am (admittedly much closer to my… Continue

What do you get when you buy a new washing machine? A dead dryer, that's what. Yes, I went to switch loads earlier and thought, "huh, I thought I started the dryer." Turned it on again and came back later to cold, wet clothes. Bummer. Anyone out there know anyone good at fixing things that are large and run on electrical power? I need help!

Wow. I want a job with the… Continue
