Pre class: I have no idea what class I have to enroll in. The instructors are on Spring break. They need to give me “all clear” before I take a math class. (On a side note, I showed my transcript to one of the teachers and he said he teaches 111. He can’t help me but the main head of Math will be my best choice. … Continue reading Math 111
This is a super cool activity! It stands for West Coast Paint Rock. My six years old loves collecting rocks and painting them. One day she found a rock painted and it had #WCPR on it. It is a “rock” version of Geo Caching. If you find a rock, either you can keep it or re-hide it again. There is a closed group on Facebook which is … Continue reading #WCPR
I can’t believe I am feeling this way-for a cat! I don’t like pets. (Hold on, before you start getting mad at me). Consider my situation: a pet in my dictionary means more work for me. My kids are enough for me. I don’t want my plate being overload. This was the same reaction when we got Sultan (my daughter’s cat). It’s been almost three … Continue reading In Love With A Monster
If someone would have said to me sixteen ago that I would be delighted to see the sun, or, I will crave sunlight, I would have said: no way! I loved the rain. Back home in Pakistan, in Karachi, we use to get ample sunlight (don’t know how global warming altered everything now). Sun was always there. Weather was not a variable at all. Our … Continue reading Soak Up the Sun
Somethings are deceiving ( weather and miles)! It was a car-less day for me. This means I was forced to stay home-all day. But fate had other plans. I wanted to complete an errand and it was just 0.5 mile away. Piece of cake, right? My walk would take 25 minutes one way.I will have an excuse to wear my rainboots ( earlier it was … Continue reading 0.5 Mile
The last week of March is marked as a time when gray whales make their way to Alaska . At least that’s what they say. I didn’t get lucky to see a single sign of a whale. On the other hand, my husband and kids got lucky. Let me know if you spot one in the pictures… Continue reading Where, O , Where?
I am usually not like this. I am capable of making the right choices (I think). I like to use my brain more than the “heart.” But the last couple of days have just been indicating one and only thing, “start smoking.” Here’s who to blame: Mad Men. It is an AMC drama. The first episode or so I didn’t have much feelings for the … Continue reading Marlboro?

It is nestled between the trees and have ample exploratory and paved trails We started our journey on a rainy day on an exploratory trail.It’s a great idea to wear rain boots or else you will find your self splashing in the puddles and making your way … Continue reading Empire Lake
Over the past years, I have develop a sense of procrastination about organizing. I don’t call it procrastination. I have given this a separate name: next time. I make excuses and delay the chores. The last week my excuse was the weather. It was cold, wet, and dark. A good recipe of procrastination. I kept on telling myself that once the weather gets warm, I … Continue reading Next Time
I love working out. Yes, it’s true, not a typo. Why do I love working out? Am I a weirdo? No(I don’t think so). I am not a believer of treadmills/ellipticals/stair master… For me it’s just too boring and not motivational at all. No fun there. Also, a very credentialed personal trainer, a winner of bronze in the Olympics, told me that don’t waste too … Continue reading Right Choice
