Our little boy is 1 year old. It is so hard to believe (also hard to believe is that I am almost done with another knitting project). So, I don't know where I first saw this idea, though I am... Continue reading

In the past year, knitting has become almost a fantasy. It's not that I cannot knit. Heck, I have been getting about the same amount of stuff done, but it has been in dribs and drabs. I will have a... Continue reading

This week's 10 for Tuesday is about cars. As I just earned my license last week, I am not really qualified to write about cars I have owned. Instead, I want to write about baby-led weaning. I cannot remember where... Continue reading

Monday was an eventful day for me. It involved insurance, a phone call or two (not mine), parallel parking, a really sad 3 point turn, and then at the end a sheet and the words, "You Passed." Yup, I am... Continue reading

In the past, Thanksgiving, and to a lesser extent Halloween, was my raison d'etre during the fall. I would cook, plan, and cook some more with an eye to making the largest number of Thanksgiving desserts, while cooking just enough... Continue reading

There are tons of books I love, though I'll admit that between having a baby and going back to school if it isn't a board book or a textbook I don't really have time for it. I feel weird apologizing... Continue reading

Chris is now at home, taking care of Q, while I am attempting to bring home the veggie bacon, but not real veggie bacon (that's cruel) and to learn all of the things. It is awesome, because, unlike daycare, Chris... Continue reading

For Camp Loopy project 3, we needed to knit 800 yards minimum using our favorite colors. As much as I joke about black, the "color of my soul," I love blue. In the past few years I've become more of... Continue reading

I'm sitting in Q's nursery room, about 5 feet from his crib as he falls asleep. I'm back early from my first CS class, because we went over chapter 1, course objectives, basic programming information, and the syllabus. It wasn't... Continue reading

Time management is for everybody. Intellectually I know that, but now that I am a parent I feel like I have to be even more careful to get things done when the opportunities present themselves. When I first met Abby... Continue reading

So, instead of knitting or cleaning or making more ice cream, I will leave you with our celebration of Weird Al Yankovic's new album, Mandatory Fun. Poor guy, born to such a Tacky family! Sunday is National Ice Cream Day,... Continue reading

I finished a second item in the beginning of June. Q needs replacement sweaters, because either they are shrinking or he is growing (I know which one it is) and the ones I made for him no longer fit his... Continue reading

People never tell you when you have kids that your thoughts of having a schedule mostly go out the window. There are lots of things they don't tell you, and because every family is different sometimes it is because they... Continue reading

This picture has nothing to do with today's 10 for Tuesday topic. I just love my little boy. So, this week's 10 for Tuesday is 10 Bands or Individuals you've seen in concert. 1. It's hard to beat this one... Continue reading

I've been trying to find a replacement for Donut King (goodness I loved that place). Doughnuts don't appear to be as big a thing here as they were in New England. On the other hand, it is a lot easier... Continue reading

Camp Loopy is starting soon! This is the time of year where I buy yarn pretty much every month, and I actually finish things. The first project is 400 yards and it has to remind you of a character or... Continue reading

click images for bigger Last weekend was the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival. As part of my ongoing driving practice, we went to the festival via North & Lime. The drive was uneventful, and we got to the festival early.... Continue reading

Trying new things is a pet peeve of mine. I realized a few years ago that I would say that I didn't like something, and that people around me would say the same thing. Some of these things were things... Continue reading

So I couldn't tell you when I first read about baby-led weaning, but apparently it is a thing. You take your baby, put some food stuffs in front of them, and watch and listen to them experience food. No making... Continue reading

Yeah. Victor and Q are in the same party. As Q gets older, it is getting easier to do knitting in the evening. I recently finished a sweater for him (I sewed on the buttons on Sunday) and baby legwarmers.... Continue reading

This morning we had snow. Not a lot of accumulation, but blustery. Walking Victor was an exercise in snow down the back of my sweat jacket in one direction and a calm winter storm (if any storm can be called... Continue reading

Mild mannered, focused corporate CEO by day (though that face isn't giving out any bonuses soon) and cucumber-powered super hero by night, behold Q-cumberman. Yeah, we love the PhotoShop. Q is slowly learning to enjoy some solids. Not that he... Continue reading

So, gifts for babies. I know it is tempting to make sweaters or other clothes, but after my first experience making clothes that fit for about 6 hours I now make blankets, hats (aiming for year size), or toys. For... Continue reading

The past two weeks have been 10 things you do that your spouse doesn't do but could and 10 things that your spouse does that you could do but don't. What a mouthful. Since I didn't do the first one... Continue reading
