9 months

Sam is 9 months old today! Happy 3/4's Birthday! I think about now is when I'm supposed to say "time flies" or "I can't believe how she's grown" or something of that sort. But I won't, because I hate being predictable. Instead, look at these shoes...are they not the cutest things ever?!?!   Here she... Continue Reading →

i just wanna…

Spring. Doncha' love it? I always say that this is my favorite time of year. But then Sept/Oct rolls around and then I'll say that fall is my favorite time of year. I'm fickle like that I guess. You know how I'm always saying that I'm bored? I think this time of year and coming out of... Continue Reading →

Class of ’94, redux

I guess this will be the post where I rehash anything publicly sharable from my weekend. And then wonder why I feel the need to do so on the internet. But anyway.... I gathered up the 20-30 bags of stuff needed to travel with a child and headed to the fam's on Saturday. (By the way, why... Continue Reading →


It's official. I now have a fully advanced case of the "Momdar". Last night/morning it was The Accountant's turn to have baby duty. In other words, if she woke up crying it was his job to get up and change her diaper, feed her, console, sing, do the hokey pokey, whatever she needed so that I... Continue Reading →

to tide you over

I have a nice long post drafted but I really must go to bed before I collapse onto the floor and scare the cat. But until then, here is my new favorite picture of Sam. If you look really close you can see her two bottom teeth poking through. She loves bathtime, especially when I... Continue Reading →

Dan Miller

I don't always catch the morning news so like many events, I heard about Dan Miller's death via Twitter. I haven't been able to watch the tributes today but am watching Channel 4 now, at 10pm. His empty chair with the flowers is absolutely heartbreaking. Isn't it funny how we think we personally know the people who... Continue Reading →

deep thoughts for a Saturday night

You can't depend on others for your own happiness. Who said that? Someone smarter than me. Such an obvious sentiment but it's so obvious that it gets missed a lot I think. That thought hit me tonight. Hard. I don't know. I am just thinkin' thinkin'. I'm discovering lately that I do this. The depending on others thing I... Continue Reading →
