Sick Entertainment

February 27, 2010

Benjamin came home with a headache on Tuesday. Which turned into a fever on Tuesday night. Which turned into puking on Wednesday night. Which turned into… ahhh, never mind.

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.

Over the Edge

May 21, 2009

Rogue Mission

April 28, 2009

His first and his last.

March 18, 2009

On Saturday morning I slipped away in the middle of the night to jump on another plane. This time Benjamin had to stay behind. I let him fall asleep in my bed so I could watch him drift while I packed. He spent his last few moments awake begging me to stay, “Mommy, take me […]
