Hunting and Gathering

Normally when I’m stressed, I rearrange the furniture, knock down walls, paint rooms, rip out flooring. You know, small projects like that.

Thanks to my back, I can’t do any of those things. Yesterday, I took Peanut and her cousin to the movies, went grocery shopping, did a load of laundry, and cleaned up the kitchen. Today, I can’t move from a supine position no matter how many handfuls of anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxers and pain meds I swallow.

While I await my visit to the Spine Clinic where they better offer Instant Healing because I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THIS, because we have OTHER MORE IMPORTANT SHIT GOING ON HERE, I’ve been building a little sub-blog to entertain myself and possibly some of you.

It’s called CalifmomFinds. (You can find a permanent link to it up in the navigation bar on Califmom, between Reviews and Examiner, my other gigs.) CalifmomFinds is a place for me to gather all of the treasures I find as I peruse the Interwebs. Some of the items are quirky, some are handmade, some are one-of-a-kind, and some are beyond any budget I’ll ever have.


Even more than hunting for things for myself, I love to hunt for things for other people. If there’s something you’re trying to find, hop over to CalifmomFinds and let me know. I will not, however, be able to help locate the following:

  • your mojo

  • lost minds

  • love

  • the meaning of life (42)

  • happiness (unless material goods bring it for you)

  • the man or woman of your dreams, unless he/she is deliverable via UPS

Just wanted to get that disclaimer out there.

Also, none of the goodies on CalifmomFinds are there because someone compensated me. All that kinda stuff is on CalifmomReviews. Disclosure. I haz it.
