Various Asundry…finding me online and new writing ventures

Well this week has NOT gone as planned.

Tuesday, Rhett was sick.  Lee and Levi were out of school. I was supposed to telework.  Yeah. It didn’t happen.

Wednesday (today), Levi has a stomach virus which I am guessing he got from Rhett. Sigh…Lee will be next, I am certain.

I want to nap.  I am tired.  I have a sinus infection which I just went to the NP to get meds for. Miserable.  I get them 2-3 times a year, almost always at the beginning of fall and spring.

I’m on a roll blogging here so I figured, since I can’t nap (oh I wish I were a napper), I thought I’d share a few things.


Are you on Pinterest?  I joined a while back and have found it to be quite fun. You have to be careful about spammy pins but so far, I’ve found a ton of ideas and a lot of great recipes.  So, if you’re on Pinterest, leave me your Pinterest name so I can find you! I’m thatcarrie on Pinterest.


Oh, about a week ago, I finally (finally) got an iPhone after about two years of talking about it…you think you’re sick of it, you should be Rose. She’s heard about it for YEARS. Just a 4 for now. Hunter will be upgrading soon and he’s going to take the 4 and hopefully, I’ll get a 4s cheaper since the 5 is coming out soon.

With that, I joined Instagram this week.  So far, two pictures.  Impressive, I know. But you can find me at thatcarriega on Instagram if you’d like.  I love, love, love the camera on this iPhone. Now if I can just figure out how to make the darn thing work half the time, I’ll be doing good.

And last but not least…

I have been writing for well over a year now at a site called Mom Prepares.  I’ve been working with these lovely ladies since the start-up and we’re growing leaps and bounds.  I write at least once a week over there.  I hope you’ll come over and join us.
