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…]

Snow Day and Cocoa

Wow, this is a ton of snow. For those of you who aren’t locals, it’s been snowing hard literally all day. At 6:30 am there was already more than we’ve gotten in most of or snowstorms this year, and it hasn’t stopped since. We’re hovering right near the freezing point, so it’s heavy, wet snow … [Read more…]

Personal Improvements

M got glasses. And contacts. She recently reported that she was having trouble seeing, and she started spending quite a bit of time picking out random objects at a distance and reporting to us exactly what she could and couldn’t see. (“See the poster on that wall there? I can’t even see it! Okay, well, … [Read more…]

Back to the Savannah Book Festival

We spent the first half of our February break in beautiful Savannah. Actually, we left town early, right after M was done with Thursday track practice, because we were driving and it is a long drive (about 15 hours). We were superstars who were on the road until just after 1 am, so on Friday … [Read more…]
