Sick Entertainment

February 27, 2010

Even though we were sick, low on energy, and trapped in our house Benjamin and I still managed to have a fairly entertaining week. With the help of my MacBook Pro we made his first movie. Not bad for an almost 4 year old. (And don’t miss a hilarious John Bear sighting at the end). […]

The other side

September 3, 2009

I spotted my first fallen leaves in the grass of the baseball diamond near my post office last Thursday. The bag over my shoulder was bursting with little brown packages. Each containing a silver or bronze new leaf necklace destined for one of you. I make this walk to the post office, with Murphy in […]

Haunted Bedford?

August 27, 2009

Remember how I mentioned John Bear being a bit “creeped out” when we arrived at our bed and breakast in Bedford, PA. Well, check this video out: Hope you enjoy. And do me a favor… if you live in New York City (and don’t hate me) please spread the word about this event for single […]

My new dance partner

July 3, 2009

I’ve mentioned Murphy before… To refresh your memory, Murphy is John Bear‘s dog, who happens to be white (Benjamin has been requesting a white dog for months and months). Since then the two have met and I’ve even been watching Murphy during the days while John Bear works. And guess what? This cat person has […]

Tea, anyone?

June 9, 2009

I’m sick.  A sinus infection or something. Allergies. Stupid allergies. This is the first time I’ve ever had them.  Am I the only one who thinks it’s awful that we all medicate ourselves for a few months every year because of stuff floating around in the air? This is  terrible, terrible, terrible feeling. My head […]

Over the Edge

May 21, 2009

Ever felt like you just want to dive off a mountain top? No? I hadn’t either.  That was until I spent three days straight with Nolan and Benjamin, two adorable three-year-olds who, when together, can’t stop beating on each other. Like a cosmic formula Kristin and I’s sons had it out for each other during […]

Rogue Mission

April 28, 2009

If you missed it… Last month I entered a video in hopes of being selected as one of 100 Ford Fiesta Movement agents. A few weeks later I got a surprising phone call from Ford that I had, indeed won. The call came from this guy… Andrew, my Mission Control point of contact. Isn’t he […]

Fiesta, Fiesta!

March 22, 2009

Benjamin’s party went off without a hitch. Miraculously. Somehow – between Benjamin’s birthday on Wednesday and his party on Saturday – I managed (with Mia’s help) to morph my upstairs guest room into an office and my living room into – well – just a living room. I even had time to decorate with daisies.  […]

His first and his last.

March 18, 2009

Because today was Benjamin’s first and his last third birthday and because I didn’t buy him a single present in Austin I spent my lunch break on a mission. My mission was to buy everything I would need to transform his room from a nursery/toddler room…  [Click to continue, although, be warned – there are […]
