C’est La Vie

June 10, 2012 by

Have you been to Fred Meyer lately? What a mess! They are doing a major renovation that won’t be completed until November. Nothing is where you expect it to be and we shoppers can become a grouchy bunch. I think I walked about 40 miles. First I did my shopping, including a few items from […]

Smiling Down

May 13, 2012 by

It’s been a perfect Mother’s Day so far. Elijah has been pampering us with food and drink and we got to video chat with Aaron, who will be home for a visit in a couple of weeks. Louise wanted to get a hanging flower basket so we walked down to Fred Meyer together. The store […]

A Mythical Orb

April 1, 2012 by

You know what would be sad? If all the cherry blossoms got washed off the trees before we had even one perfectly nice day. Just as we closed the book on the wettest March on record (yes, that’s right), the sun appeared! We ventured out, blinking like moles emerging from their tunnel. Within an hour the skies […]

I should have known better. I thought I had learned to always carry a hundred dollar bill and my camera with me. You never know when the perfect opportunity will present itself. But yesterday, when I had to make a quick dash to the store, I just stuck my wallet (sans hundred) in my coat […]

Energy or Something

February 25, 2012 by

Guess where I went today. If you said “Fred Meyer”, you would be correct. And a loyal reader (for which I thank you). I had intended to do my giving at the mall after going to an afternoon movie. But as we were parking the car at the theater I realized I had left my […]

I’ve been thinking – about what’s next and how to really make a difference. I even made a New Year’s resolution. My resolution is to keep trying to figure this out. Last year (and My Month of Hundreds) was focused on honoring my mother and examining my relationship with money. I accomplished what I hoped for and […]

Happy New Year

January 2, 2012 by

It’s 2012 and I am still giving away money! In part, this is because I fell short of my goal of giving 100 hundreds in 2011. I still had a few hundreds to go when the page turned on the year. What will happen after those are given? I don’t know. I have gotten so […]

Small Talk

December 29, 2011 by

I just might not make it, and that’s the truth. I started the day with five hundreds left to give before the end of the year. It’s going to be tough, as I am working tomorrow as well as all day Saturday. The reality, along with panic, started to set in. I don’t know what […]

No Kidding

December 21, 2011 by

Believe it or not, I forgot it was almost Christmas. It wasn’t until I stepped inside (you guessed it) Fred Meyer that it all came rushing back to me. Don’t get me wrong: I have nothing against Christmas or those who celebrate it. Nothing at all. I know it seems bizarre to my Christian friends […]

Say Hi

December 14, 2011 by

I had a busy day of doctoring in Gresham today and didn’t really want to stop at the store on the way home. Then I found out that Louise was going to be at work till 8:00 and I changed my tune. Milk and bread? Check, no problem. Fred Meyer at 6:30 was a bit of […]
