Narcissism

So, my cute husband keeps posting all of my blog posts to Facebook.  Which is sweet, but I was starting to get a little embarrassed, and I said, basically, do you have to?   Then he started teasing me, complete with fluttery, effeminate gestures of indecision and distress:  “Oh, I want people to read it!  … [Read more…]

Bring on February!

That’s right, it’s the month of love.  We kicked it off with a little celebration that included a fancy dessert auction, and while I made bids on what would be most delicious to me personally, my ever-thoughtful husband looked at everything and thought, what would most delight my 7- and 5-year-old daughters?  The result: Sure … [Read more…]

Frigidly Freezin’

Wow, when it’s this cold, I just want to stay inside.  Luckily, there’s lots to do this weekend, but the freezing weather and a visit to Mohawk Commons last night reminded me that I have another list I’m working on, which I like to call  “Indoor Desperation”.  You know–for when you must get out of the … [Read more…]

Wake Up, Baby!

I’m a little bit concerned that, between all of my whining and all of the talk about skiing, some of you might be nodding off in boredom.  Or perhaps the bloggy-voice is starting to sound like Charlie Brown’s teacher, wah-whonk-wah-whonka-wahh. . .  So  I’m introducing the latest project that I’ve been working on.  It’s a calendar of regularly-scheduled events.  … [Read more…]

Comments, and other Complaints

The purveyors of spam found me while we were skiing, so I am temporarily moderating comments to ensure that you are not trying to convince my readers that they need bigger, more long-lasting erections.  Argh. Meanwhile, I have great drifts of laundry that are piled all over the main floor of my house, and my … [Read more…]

Jiminy Peak

Okay, I know, I’ve been the slacking blogger lately.  Originally I thought that I’d be home much earlier yesterday, but with the crazy weather, plans changed. In case you were wondering, yes, it was warm and pouring rain on Monday at Jiminy Peak.  It was monsoon-like.  We took a walk that morning and it was … [Read more…]

My New Cute Cards

I’ve been going to places like Panera and Joyful Jumpers and seeing all of these people walking around with toddlers who could really use some Capital District Fun.  It’s making me a little nutty, yet approaching them feels at least intimidating and possibly freakish.  So I made some little cards to put on bulletin boards.  … [Read more…]

Weekend Again Already!

Night 2 without the husband and I’m on my third vapid chick flick.  Wore the purple flower barrette to gymnastics and not a single person made a comment, which meant I couldn’t explain loudly that my five-year-old had done my hair.  Earlier grouchiness evolved into an intense craving for a particular chocolate chip cookie recipe. … [Read more…]

Grouchy

When my husband goes out of town, I miss him most in the morning.  He is a morning person, as is M.  Not me.  Last night, when M went to bed, I persuaded her to set the alarm for 6:15 am instead of 6 am, which she prefers.  She is a morning freak of nature–a 7-year-old … [Read more…]
