When I went to pick Edward up for physical therapy I had a few minutes to wait while they tracked down his class in the computer lab; so I got to look at the completed work hanging outside the room.... Continue reading

The following event, in its entirety, has just shown up in my calendar for February: "Steve is flying on an airplane to Colorado where he will stay for several days seeing clients to discuss [redacted] in the company of [redacted]... Continue reading

About five seconds before Patrick was due to leave this morning for science bowl practice he came into our bedroom. "Mom," he whispered and I tensed, squeezing my eyes even shut-er. History tells us that a child about to walk... Continue reading

I have probably said it before and I will definitely say it again but I truly do not understand why I am lucky enough to have the smartest, funniest, kindest, wisest, most thoughtful, most introspective, most extrospective, most supportive people... Continue reading

Oh Ellie. You are so lovely.

Sarah, hey another baby! How exciting and congratulations. No no no. Not jack-y at all. A perfectly fine question and one I found interesting, hence the follow-up. A huge part of managing solo without misery, really, is having older kids. As Becky said, much better than I can, above.

Anon, I am so sorry for your loss. It does sound exhausting and I don't know how you did it either. I know how you ARE doing it, however, and that is with a great deal of grace and humor. You have my respect and sympathy and warmest hopes for much more fun in your future. Did you ever watch 30 Rock? Tina Fey's character used to dress up as Princess Leia when she was called for jury duty and explain that she didn't think it was fair for her to participate since she was a hologram. Apparently this didn't work in NYC but perhaps if you live anywhere else... ?

Of course, Steve's version of Tradeshowgate - if he cared enough to have one, which he doesn't - would probably start with him telling me that he was going to a trade show for something or other at the end... Continue reading

Yes, it is becoming clear to me that my passion for Chelsea puts me beyond the reach of decent people. On the plus side I guess I am now free to follow someone else in the FA cup - any suggestions? I assume at this point Arsenal is going to win it all (who's left?) but I like an underdog. Usually. Except with Chelsea. What can I say? Have you ever watched Hazard dance past three defenders to score? So pretty. And I just ordered the book, thank you!

Steve and I... well, I don't want to say that we have a difference of opinion because that makes it sound like we are not in all things, at all times, in perfect harmony, always. Which would be wrong. But... Continue reading

Steve read this and said exactly the same thing: too soon.

No one was airing the Chelsea fourth round FA cup match today (and we still have internet powered by lethargic squirrels) so I had to follow gameplay by scrolling through a live feed on my phone. Chelsea scored. Then Chelsea... Continue reading

I'm watching the Cambridge (United) v Manchester (United) game that I recorded yesterday in honor of Toni and I am cheering up immeasurably. I'm only 30 minutes into it but Manchester looks like they're drunk. And I see Man City lost as well so at least Chelsea isn't the only premier club to be staring into a big bowl of shame. Everton, eh?

Oh no! Of course not. Well, I don't know you, so maybe but I didn't take it that way. I read your comment ten minutes after I finished peering at the live feed from Stamford Bridge and the pain was still so raw. 4-2. FOUR DASH TWO. Chelsea knocked out by a League 2 team. Oh the humanity.

Yeah. Thanks.

In my most narcissistic moments I see Caroline and Patrick as if I were viewing them through my own reflection in a fun house mirror: one version so concentrated; the other so expansive. Patrickness interprets my whatsit as if it... Continue reading

No I haven't seen it. In my mind Les Mis is really about the music and although I know Anne Hathaway has a lovely voice; Russell Crowe? I am willing to be convinced otherwise , though, if someone has seen it. What I would really like to find for Caroline is one of the staged versions. Did anyone ever put one on DVD?

I have been laughing over this since I first read it this morning.

After Toni left me the link to a terrific football-related Les Miserables parody (BPL Transfer Deadline Day the Musical) I have had the score stuck in my head. So I went to find my, yes, cassette tapes only to realize... Continue reading
