Happily Ever After?

March 29, 2010

“Maybe you shouldn’t have kids,” I sigh into the phone. Typically I’m encouraging my little sister to just have a kid already, but my sister has caught me in a post Benjamin was being a pain in the ass moment and I don’t really feel like talking, or doing much of anything. In fact, I […]

May the force be with you

March 10, 2010

Designed by none other than John Bear, the tireless 80’s toy and movie pusher, Benjamin’s birthday invitation garnered such a strong reaction from everyone who found it in their inbox that I had to share. When Benjamin saw it he jumped up and down, and then after a few more viewings proceeded to tell me […]

I tried to quit coffee last week. That lasted for about a minute. Coffee is irresistible. Between shopping trips this morning I popped into one of those cheesy party stores.
