This Week

The offerings are a little bit paltry this week, I must admit.  The kick-off-the-school-year events have already happened, and it’s not quite time for spooky-Halloween-stuff or appreciate-the-fall-leaves.  So it’s quiet.  Halfway through working on the week’s events, I decided that I really just have to clean house and work on the What About TODAY? listing.  … [Read more…]

Last Weekend of September Already!

Phew, you guys, I’m tired!  I have a cold which seems to be resisting even my beloved Theraflu, it was Back-to-School Night for the big girl, it’s our last night without Daddy, and I just realized that my Netflix chick flick is foreign-with-subtitles.  Which means I can’t multitask.   I’m just going to stop looking for … [Read more…]

This Week

It’s actually pretty quiet this week.  Part of it is that I need to parse through the various schedules and reconfirm what is unique and what’s a regularly scheduled event for the What About TODAY? page.  I also tried to update my Playground List and ran into technical difficulties yesterday.  Not to mention that I … [Read more…]

Hanging Around the House

I don’t know about the rest of you, but my kids are exhausted and more than ready for the weekend. They spent the day sneaking over to our next-door neighbor’s house, where there was a yard sale.  You’ve heard already that the girls love a yard sale.   They were both outside in the rain at … [Read more…]

Ah, an Autumnal Weekend

Another busy weekend!  Thanks to those of you who’ve recently completed the playground survey–I’m going to update that list soon.  Oh, and I missed it earlier, but CMOST is having a program on Wednesday or Saturday mornings at 9:30 am for 2- to 4-year-olds.  Here’s what else  I’ve found. . . any additions? All Weekend: … [Read more…]

Lovin’ the Routine!

School’s great, thank you.  They’re both settling in, making new friends, liking the teacher. Most of our activities haven’t started, but at least we’ve figured out what we’re doing.  The girls both enjoyed their soccer games:  I was afraid that they wouldn’t like them as much as practices, but I think that they’re even more … [Read more…]

Local Blogs and Personal Dog Drama

For those of you who were wondering, the TU’s Albany blog has a post on what happened to the playground in Lincoln Park.  Meanwhile, their Youth Arts blog has a post on a casting call from the Cohoes Music Hall for kids 5-8 to act in “A Christmas Carol” and another post about  joining the … [Read more…]

This Week

I was with J at bedtime, and I asked her if she was ready to turn off the light, and she said, “No, I need more time for kissing and rejoicing you!”  Very adorable.  And then, moments later, she told me that she was very sad about something, and after a few minutes I understand … [Read more…]

More Stuff Going On, and an Apology

Today I was chatting with friends at a playground when one of them told me that she gets mad when I don’t post every day.  Really? I do try to post every day, but the late August-early September transition is one of my least favorite times of the year.   The girls and I are discombobulated … [Read more…]

This Weekend

We’ve got a tremendously busy weekend coming up.  Here’s what I’ve found: All Weekend: There’s the Tug Boat Roundup in Waterford. The Shaker Heritage Society in Albany is having their Fall Harvest Craft Fair from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.  Family activities and pony rides.  It’s $4/person. It’s Clifton Park’s Annual … [Read more…]
