This blog post is coming to you live from Eva, the droid. I’m not even typing; I’m “swyping,” which involves sweeping my finger across a glass screen in a single fluid motion. I release my finger, and she knows I’m done with a word. I place my finger on the screen again, and she automatically puts a space and starts the next word.
Sometimes I’m sloppy, but she is also very intuitive and guesses what I’m trying to say, often times with scary-good accuracy.
There are other cool features.
In fact I’m not even typing right now. I’m speaking at her and she’s typing for me.
Wow. That last paragraph was added by voice command.
I think I’m in love.
…and I don’t even have an app for that.
Do you ever look around your office, kitchen, or house and think, “Well, that looks cluttered!?” Well, I’ve been de-cluttering the office, kitchen, and house…
…and now it’s the blog’s turn!
Rather than have a bunch of stuff over on the sidebars of the blog, I’ve moved them all to their own page:
Awards & Recognition
I’ve also cleaned up and rearranged the tabs at the top.
I’ve swept it up, dusted the surfaces, and I love how it looks.
…now we’ll see how long it stays that way!
I find it only fitting that I bring up the Travel Category while we’re on another trip.
Back in 2004, my husband and I took two weeks to travel around Europe. It was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken. He has gone back since for work, and we know we’ll go again in the future.
There are other Travel-related Categories, too, but this post will focus on our Europe adventures.
Here is a look into those stories.
Did you know I used to have a “real” job?
This Category is a fun look back at when I didn’t have time to sit around and eat bon-bons all day.

This week, while we’re in Hawaii, I’m pulling some fun categories to the surface. One of my favorites is “Are you bleeding?,” not only because it’s an interesting category, but it’s the first triage question I usually ask.
I can’t help it. It’s how I was raised.
“Are you bleeding?” No? Carry on, then.
There is a whole other set of questions to ask from there if the answer is “yes.”
Check out the “Are you bleeding?” Category for some “fun” stories!
I’ve always been fascinated with language, and having a child is a crash-course in not only teaching a language but learning one as well.
Over the years, I’ve been careful to record the “Claire-isms,” the words and phrases that Claire makes up. As I looked back through these, what I feared is true! I’d already forgotten some of them.
It’s a good thing I’d written them down when I had a chance!
Check it out: Claire-isms!
Well, it’s finally here! In honor of our 10-year wedding anniversary next month (almost 14 years together…can you believe it!?) my husband and I are escaping to Hawaii for two glorious weeks of play. The grandparents have arrived for two weeks of play as well, but they’ll have their work cut out for them, too.
Play is hard work when a preschooler is involved.
I’ve got some things set to auto-post these two weeks. For your reading pleasure, I’m pulling up some categories, dusting them off, and providing links to them. I love reading back through our stories. It’s one (if not the main) reason I love writing here at The Casual Perfectionist.
So, sit back, relax and start reading.
Hey! That’s on my To Do List for the next couple of weeks, too!
