Not a lucky dining choice

I nodded my head in agreement to most of the predictable recommendations for where to go when visiting Portland in a recent Shelterrific post. Part of me thinks there would be a lot less for bloggers to write about if they were required to first Google whether the question had previously been asked and answered, […]

ADA parking in an ideal world

We went to the grocery store the other night, and it was really cold out. Despite getting the handicapped space nearest the door, I still started complaining about the cold as soon as I got out of the car. Note that these are paraphrased, as I have awful verbal recall of conversations.

In a mere three or so hours of hobbling (my foot continues to be painful), he and I found not just a couch and two living room chairs made of awesome, but also […]

Overdue move

Nothing like holding on to the past for a year too long. I have finally decided in my little heart that nonprofitgirl could die. This is due in part to the fact that I no longer have the urge to post there, and in part because I…haven’t worked in the non-profit sector for over a […]
