Learning New Sports

Yes, of course I will get to Spain, but I need a little time. We’re still recovering from our trip, and it’s better if I get organized and ask the girls about their favorite memories and wait until Cute W’s sorted his photos and all of that. I’ve been talking about the girls’ new sports, … [Read more…]

Home from Spain!

Yep, we went away for April break! We just got home tonight. Some people might like to spend the day after a vacation recovering and doing laundry, but we plan on spending tomorrow at a volleyball tournament–whoop, whoop! I will catch you up on our adventures later, but here are a few pictures from this … [Read more…]

Spring, Please!

I think this picture was from our last snowstorm, when it was very snowy but not particularly cold. J decided to make herself some tea and head out to read in the snow. I am ready for spring. Like real, full-on spring. In high school I used to dress up in a summery dress and … [Read more…]

Automatic Kitty

Here is our lovely kitty.   You might not be able to tell just by looking at her, but she is sitting there waiting for someone to turn the faucet on to a gentle stream of cool, fresh water. She has a bowl of water, but that is for lame-os. She’s vastly prefer fresh-flowing water. … [Read more…]

March for Our Lives

Cute W, M, and I went to the March for Our Lives in downtown Albany on Saturday. It was a good turnout, with a similar crowd to what we’d seen at Women’s March at the same spot back in January. Cute W took some crowd pictures, and if you want to play Where’s Waldo, you … [Read more…]

Best Laid Plans

I was feeling pretty good this afternoon. I was way ahead on dinner, which is always a plus on Mondays, when M has a short window of time between track practice and soccer practice to scarf down some dinner. The main dish was chicken Italian dressing bake, which M had particularly requested, and I was … [Read more…]

Tech Struggles

On Friday our internet stopped working. I don’t know what it was, it just cut out. Usually if this happens I crawl under my desk and start unplugging and re-plugging cords into the modem, and then it’s fine. Or it’s not fine, and I do it some more.┬áThere is a veritable jungle of cords under … [Read more…]

This Is How We Do It

And yes, you should have that song in your head now. Or, I do, at least. You’re welcome. Which reminds me, here is an old song that I only recently learned about which I have been blasting while washing dishes lately: Lizzo’s Good as Hell. You’re welcome again. I’m saying “This Is How We Do … [Read more…]

Excuses, Excuses.

I haven’t been posting much, lately. The problem with skipping out on posting for a few days is that getting back into the rhythm is rough. Do I start with the important event that I should have shared ten days ago, or that trivial incident that just happened? And, in the midst of considering those … [Read more…]

Pile On

This post is from last week. I’ve been having a terrible time keeping up with everything. More on that. But for now, let’s share this, shall we? Okay, first? Enough with the freakin’ snow already. I mean, really. All of the snow that rightfully belonged in January and February saved itself up for March, and … [Read more…]
