Book Review: Layoff Reboot

Layoff Reboot: Okay, what am I doing with a book about  layoffs on a de-cluttering blog?  Well… I found out about this book today and decided to read it while it’s FREE.  I mean, it is an odd book to mention on this blog, isn’t it? But you know, when I saw the title, I realized that it has a broader application to reinventing your (workforce) career to doing what you really want to do. It can apply to a

Who Doesn’t LOVE a Giveaway?

Well, I’m sure that some people don’t, but hey. Most people do enjoy a chance to try something FREE.  And the folks over at Inkwell Press are doing JUST THAT.  They’re giving away THREE prizes.  What is it, you ask?  Well, I’ll tell you.  PLANNERS FOR LIFE!  That’s right.  Three very fortunate people will receive an Inkwell Press planner every year for “life”  (I don’t know what their definition of “life” is but I suspect that it includes the life

STOP THE MADNESS!!!

I don’t understand.  What is with these crazy people.  Kaye left the laptop open while she took the kids to the park, so I thought I’d do a little Internet surfing–watch funny dog videos, spam cat hater blogs–the uzhe.  I ran across this BLOG post about Santa.  Obviously, Santa’s a cool guy.  Always brings me a nice catnip mouse and lets me drink his milk.  Kaye still thinks I steal it, but I know where my catnip is buttered.  I’m

On the Sixth Day of New Year’s

My human came to me ‘n said, “Nothing’s getting done. Cat, help me please! I’ve got to do this! Purrlock scat! What’s all this stuff? And when will I be clutter free?” She’s getting desperate.  Crazy desperate. She’s talking about things like teaching Sophie that less is more.  The kid is a KID.  She only wants more.  More cookies, more toys, more clothes, more of everything but leaving cat whiskers.  That kid keeps trying to de-clutter mine. I think she

On the Fifth Day of New Year’s

My human came to me ‘n said, “Cat, help me please!” I’ve got to do this! Purrlock scat! What’s all this stuff? And when will I be clutter free?” I thought I’d find a bunch more books and get this week over with.  As you may recall, I’ve already been through this madness. I do not need more.  So if I show you THIS BOOK, maybe you’ll go de-clutter something and stop reading this blog and then Kaye will learn

On the Fourth Day of New Year’s

My human came to me screaming, “I’ve got to do this! Purrlock scat! What’s all this stuff, and when will I be clutter free?” She’s lost her marbles.  Which, you would think she’d be glad about–less mental clutter, right?  Oh, no!  She wants to organize them into color-coded bins or something.  Crazy. Her friend Chautona says she liked THIS BOOK–actually read this one and enjoyed it.  And then gave it to a friend who loved it too. Even her daughter

On the Third Day of New Year’s

My human came to me and cried, “Purrlock scat! What’s all this stuff, and when will I be clutter free?” See how she treats me?  I was just trying to share my mouse–introduce it to hers on the laptop–and she wounds me.  Cuts me deep.  But I will be the better feline.  I will put my toy mouse on her pillow… or under it.  Yeah.  Under it.  As a  peace offering.  I am so misunderstood. THIS is the book du

On the Second Day of New Year’s

My human came to me and wailed, “What’s all this stuff and when will I be clutter free?” Now she’s on a cleaning kick.  She’s trying to become some freaky Martha Steward gal.  I mean, if she wants to go all gourmet with the food, I’m not going to complain–particularly if she wants to consider adding salmon to the plate, but otherwise this is just craziness.  Still, THIS BOOK is tempting her today.  Didn’t she get rid of all those

On the First Day of New Year’s…

My human came to me, and asked, “When will I be clutter free?” It’s that time of year.  Humans get all weird after Christmas–remember last year?  She freaked out because she couldn’t find a laser.  A LASER.  They just wanted to torment me with it.  Didn’t it ever occur to them that I batted it under the china cabinet for a reason.  They  never move that thing.  No torment.  Life is good. But she freaked out and bought all those
