Poor Cereal Bar

by Claudya Martinez December 1, 2011

You are so lucky you only get to see the edited version of me because the unedited version of me leaves quite a bit to be desired sometimes. For example, I just threw a massive fit because Put Pie, my 3 year old, would not eat the cereal bar she had just asked for.  And […]

A Drink Before Bed #Positivismo

by Claudya Martinez November 30, 2011

For as long as I can remember, I have had difficulty falling asleep. It doesn’t matter how tired I am, I am not one of those people whose head hits the pillow and nods off within 5 minutes. No, that would be my husband. Argh, he drives me crazy saying that he’s not sleepy and […]

Open Email to Google

by Claudya Martinez November 29, 2011

Dear Google, My head is spinning. You are going through so many changes, which means that by default I will be going through so many changes. I have to tell you that I’m freaking out a bit about the pending disconnection of Google Friend Connect for non-Blogger blogs. I would love more information about how […]

My Wish Came True and So Could Yours

by Claudya Martinez November 29, 2011

The internet is a magical wonderland. You encounter all kinds of mythical creatures from trolls to fairies. The internet trolls are not pleasant, but fortunately there are kindhearted internet fairies that make up for the cruelness of the trolls. The last time I believed in fairies, I was putting a tooth under my pillow. It’s […]

Google Friend Disconnect

by Claudya Martinez November 28, 2011

Google has announced that it is discontinuing Google Friend Connect for non-Blogger blogs come March of 2012. WHAT THE FUNK! Over 700 of you follow this blog via GFC and I’m getting the shakes thinking my feed will disappear from your dashboards or readers. It will be a sad and lonely blog without you. So […]

Meyer Lemon Pie

Meyer Lemon Pie

Never go to the supermarket hungry. I did and I came home with a premade pie crust and then had to figure out what to do with it. I knew I had Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk that I could use and decided to pair it with Meyer lemons from our backyard. The results were […]

Sundays In My City

      San Francisco is the birthplace of the Mission-style burrito. Named after the Mission District in San Francisco. What makes it Mission-style? The size. It is roughly the size of your forearm. If it’s not ginormous, then it is not a Mission-style burrito. I showed you mine, now show me yours. Share your […]

Fragmented Fridays

by Claudya Martinez November 25, 2011

I went computer-free for the Thanksgiving day holiday. I spend quite a bit of time on the computer and I have to steal that time away in bits and pieces, but on the holidays I don’t want to be distracted. I want my family to know that I am choosing them and the present moment […]

Might As Well Join Them

Ice Bat

My home no longer belongs to me. There are creatures not made by nature everywhere I see. Sure they’re delightful and for the most part I think they’re okay, but sometimes I wish they would just stay put away. It seems that no matter how I try they will always be freed from their nice […]
