The only downside to having a baby in April is that now, finally, Nola is ready to hit the park. But the weather is no longer jiving with outdoor escapades so our time to swing is limited. Had she been a bigger girl, we could have put her in the infant swing sooner, but even [...]
Seven years ago, I woke up in my childhood bedroom with Constance sleeping next to me. Rain was spitting against the window, and even if there hadn’t been a Philadelphia Eagles blanket affixed to the wall with thumbtacks, keeping the outside world out, it still would have been dark.
Alanis Morissette might believe it to be [...]
Constance called me in a tizzy this morning because People.com ran the salacious headline, “Rebecca Romijn Recruits Jerry O’Connell As Mr. Mom.”
“That is so dumb,” I said. “It makes it sound like she had to bribe him to take over her job or something.”
“I get so angry about stuff like that,” she said. “It’s [...]
Today I committed forgery, but the person’s name I signed on the very important document told me it was OK. In fact, it was downright necessary in order to expedite a process that needed some expedition. At least that’s how I’ve rationalized it.
I also found a mango in my backpack. I wonder if that’s some [...]
Yeah, it must be getting close to time. I just had a little panic attack because I, for some reason, thought, “What if it’s not really in there?”

I have a cookie problem and like the blue furry monster of my youth, if there is a cookie [...]
It started as a chest cold yesterday and morphed into a stomach flu last night, which has continued through today. Thankfully it was a big election night and I had CNN to keep my mind off of puking. Although beady Wolf Blitzer and his repetitive banter made me lose it at least once.
I feel awful [...]
We had to use a flashlight to see for ourselves. The bathroom lights had been out for 5 days, inexplicably, and all bathroom activities thereafter had been completed in the dark. It wasn’t a blown fuse or bad bulbs, it was something for which we couldn’t discover the cause. Living without light [...]
A friend of mine, who shall remain nameless, works for the US Air Force and likes to read my blog at work. When she called to thank us for her Christmas package the other day, she informed me that now I have something in common with my favorite book, “Catcher In The Rye.”
I’ve been banned. [...]
