Caroline has a lump on her arm about halfway between her elbow and her shoulder. I couldn't tell you - as I couldn't tell her pediatrician - exactly how long it has been there. At least a year. Maybe two?... Continue reading

Caroline the non-herbivore took a grudging and exceptionally small bite of salad tonight at dinner. Edward watched her fondly and then boomed, "That's my girl! Wasn't it delicious? I'm so proud of you!" Which is to say: when Caroline starts... Continue reading

In general Steve has a need for more information before he is willing to commit to any given course of action, which is why it took us four years (years. four of them) to buy a dining room table. What... Continue reading

My day in interjections: 1. Hooray: You're right. I can do this. It'll work out. We'll go to Montreal exclamation point. 2. Whoa: A friend and I met to watch round 16 this afternoon and Barcelona is spectacular; Man City... Continue reading

Steve spent this afternoon trying to convince me that we should throw... well, everything to the wind and go to Montreal in June for the Canadian Grand Prix. Like, actually buy tickets and book a hotel. While it is true... Continue reading

Let's just say this has not been my week. Continue reading

We have a party tonight that we look forward to attending all year and I have been in bed with another migraine since nine o'clock this morning. We're going regardless but I feel like I am moving through treacle. Got... Continue reading

I was just falling asleep over my book last night when I realized that I was not imagining the gentle sound of sorrow that emanated from upstairs. Like Miss Clavel (which, what? seriously, she is dressed like a nun. she... Continue reading

I am going to take shameless advantage of the fact that Steve is home and retire for the evening with my book and a mug of bedtime soup. To be honest I still feel a little weird. Does my head... Continue reading

Thank you. I didn't remember posting anything last night so it was especially nice to see your comments this morning. I woke up with what I can only describe as a migraine hangover tantamount to what one might experience following... Continue reading

Steve's gone, Patrick is on a field trip, I have a migraine. I think the twins ate valentine's candy for dinner. Misery. Continue reading

I... I don't even know what to say. Your interpretation makes so much more sense. India, lotus, yoga. But were we that aware then? Maybe we just picked it up from the Brits without processing it? I am quite sure the only Indians we knew in 1977 were putting coolwhip on pie with the pilgrims.

One of the reasons Edward has been getting physical therapy (apart from the fact that he has repeatedly ripped the nails on his big toes half off by tripping over his weirdly positioned walking feet - the last time I... Continue reading

Yes, sorry. I wasn't too clear here. What I meant to convey was that Edward proposed to lie on the floor in lieu of skiing - he was just trying to market it as yoga. He actually does real yoga (well, real enough - yoga pose stretches) with his physical therapist and it seems to be helping him quite a lot. We're fans.

Edward started groaning when I reminded him that they had skiing this afternoon. "I don't want to go," he said. "It takes so long," he said. "I have so much to do at home," he said. I said, "You have... Continue reading

So middle school science bowl goes something like this: two teams of four are seated at elongated folding tables in college classrooms that range in size from lecture to seminar. Each competitor is given a button attached to a buzzer/light,... Continue reading

As I dropped Patrick off for his last practice before the science bowl tournament I said, "Well, just one more day until you're finished bowling for science." He looked at me reproachfully but it wasn't until I was halfway home... Continue reading

HA! Yes, I shall hope it was explosive diarrhea.
Oh I am so sorry! Glad it wasn't worse but still. What a horrible person.
Actually I will give him a qualified pass on this (you know, from my lofty position of judgement) because the dead-center parkers the bejeezums out of me too. DRIVE AS FAR AS YOU CAN FORWARD WITHOUT BLOCKING THE CROSSWALK, YOU YUBS. Seriously, children need exercise and the people behind you would like to drop their kids off and go, too. In yesterdays incident, though, the cars in front were almost all the way to the end of curb... so she was being a tool.
Small school, not enough bodies. At their old school, yes, like yours - she would have been tasered by the gym teacher.
Is it wrong that I am cracking up?
Perfect! Thank you.
