Yikes! Forgot this one-Bullied at Proctors Tonight

Tonight at 7:30 pm there’s a presentation at Proctors of Bullied, a documentary about one student’s experiences with anti-gay bullying. Along with the documentary, there will be screenings of student films and a panel discussion about bullying.  I can’t believe I missed this, especially since I’m friends with one of the organizers! In my brain … [Read more…]


I’m slacking off here at Capital District Fun because I wrote a post on snowshoeing over at All Over Albany. You might even remember the picture from our outing at Thacher last year.

Snowed In

Cute Little Fairies

We’re gearing up for J’s birthday party tomorrow afternoon.  Now, we’ve never invited the entire class to a party, and we’re almost always just at home.  Where we go overboard is with the cake and the crafts. This year, J said that she wanted a fairy party and the first thing out of M’s mouth … [Read more…]

Yikes!  I keep having to update with items I’d squirreled any in my email and forgotten–sorry! Did anybody else catch that super-gorgeous rainbow today at about, um, 5:45 pm?  We so completely deserved that rainbow, didn’t we?   I mean, seriously, we made it through a lot of rain.  I was over-volunteering at elementary school today, … [Read more…]

First Week in October

First Weekend in October

It’s J’s birthday!  She turns 6 on October 1st.  Our schedules are so busy that the kid party isn’t until next weekend, but we’ll be up bright and early with her Special Birthday Breakfast (pancakes, sausage, strawberries) and some present opening.  I actually put all of the presents up high, high, high because we re-use … [Read more…]

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…]
