This is part 1 of a series of blogs about my personal journey as my rising kindergartener prepares to enter the Wake County Public Schools System. Although I’ve lived in Wake County for almost a decade now I honestly didn’t pay much attention to the school system at one point. My attitude was I p...
Like it or not, it looks like the Raleigh area will definitely get some snow and ice this weekend. Here are a few tips on preparing your family for the storm. 1. Keep a small battery powered radio on hand to listen to the weather forecast. 2. Make sure you have enough heating fuel or an alternati...
April 28, 2009.  I haven't posted a blog since April??  Has it really been that long?!? Trust that although I've been busy I haven't forgotten about Active Rain.  I'm back now.  I hope some familiar faces are still around. What's happened while I was away?  Well the baby (who was a few weeks old ...
Not for a family member or friend.  Well, he has become my friend over the past year that we've been together.  But right now I think his life is coming to an end. Who you might ask? Toshiba.  My laptop. Apparently my husband and I are too mobile with him.  Those days and nights of frolicking on ...
So I'm pecking away at my keyboard this morning when an unfamiliar area code pops up on my cell phone.  I've gotten a couple of calls from out-of-staters interested in moving to the area lately, so I answer.

I was just reading an article regarding travel issues at airports (long delays, ticketing issues, fees, etc.) when I started to think about one of my own travel runarounds. Back in the summer of 2001 I booked a flight from RDU to ATL for a long weekend of theme park fun for me, my younger brother...
I consider myself pretty technologically savvy.  I text.  I email.  I blog (not as much as I want, but I do it when I can).  I remember teaching myself how to write simple computer programs on my Tandy Computer when I was about six years old.  I created a wireless network in my house before the i...
For those who've yet to vote there is still time to do so before this Tuesday.  In an emergency meeting today, the Wake County Board of Elections unanimously voted to keep one-stop voting sites open an extra four hours on Saturday, November 1.  Polls will now be open from 10am until 5 p.m. As of...
  For the first time ever I used early voting this year. I must tell everyone that it was a breeze! Maybe it was the time I chose to visit my local polling place, but there was virtually no line. I was in an out in less than ten minutes. If you've already made your decisions for this election I h...
Has anyone seen the story in today's news about a house in Saginaw, MI that was sold on eBay for $1.75?  Apparently there's a pending foreclosure and back taxes due on the property.  The buyer has no intentions of moving into the property and hopes to sale it for a profit.  To each it's own - I g...
