All right, yes, I admit it. Clearly I am crazy. To bring in a puppy when I have three very active and demanding children ( aren’t those quantifiers of ALL children?), in a house with boxes that are still not opened from moving in ~ what is wrong with me?... Continue reading

This time of year sends me flying into the kitchen, as if possessed, like a bloodhound desperate for a scent of impending smell. I want food, delicious aromatic food, yummy to look at and even better to eat. Summer is all about combining fresh and beautiful produce, but not about... Continue reading

I sat with a learned man recently who told me the story of the frog in boiling water. Evidently frogs are very thick skinned and possibly not particularly smart. So, say a frog is put in a pot of water at room temperature and is happily swimming around. As the... Continue reading

What is more comforting than an old friend? I mean a really old friend, like as in knowing each other through marriages, careers, children. Most importantly having been there when you were both fresh faced and young, desperately pondering if you would ever figure it all out. I saw just... Continue reading

This time of year is somewhat goofy. Trying to step around the hot, hot , dog days of summer while enjoying the time before school starts and managing all the children being home. Not an easy task. My children have all decided this would be a good time to get... Continue reading

For one thing, let's discuss the bugs. Evidently there has been an infestation of mosquitoes from a horror movie... Continue reading

I wake up in the shape of an upside down question mark and can't move. Oh, I see. It is due to two children in my bed, one on either side of me. There is snoring coming from the floor. My oldest has placed himself there sometime during the night.... Continue reading

The service could not be worse. I am giving Laduree a second try before an early morning hair appointment. I stand by the sign telling the world to please wait to be seated. I wait for 8 minutes and am the only person in line. As two women blow past... Continue reading

Back at the apartment I have noticed several bruises on the sides of my upper thighs. Upon reflection I know exactly how I got them. When I walk from the kitchen area to the bedroom I have approximately 8 inches within to navigate to get to the bedroom. Sound confusing?... Continue reading

My five year old is adorable. He has golden blond hair, sweet brown eyes and the ability to endear himself to most anyone who meets him. This is quite fortuitous as he is very precocious and given to some outrageous "antics". I have always heard that the French were not... Continue reading

For every helpful friendly face we saw in Provence, there is a surly, snarly, frowning face working in Paris. It occurs for a number of reasons. Life in Paris is not easy. It is crowded, busy and expensive for everyone, not just tourists. People have to really work to survive... Continue reading

If New York is the city of endless possibilities, than Paris is the city of never ending romantic notion. Mine included. Whenever I mentioned that myself, mother, three children, and at times my husband are spending a month of the summer in Paris, sighs and gasping commenced. No other city... Continue reading
