Benjamin is requesting a kitty. I want to oblige him. Even though I know we would have to name it Rebound. Still… a cute little kitten can’t hurt anyone. The last two were kidnapped by the neighbor lady, so we have plenty of extra kitten room. Maybe two? Just so they can keep each other […]

The aftermath.

January 2, 2011

The support. The e-mails. The phone calls. The support. The e-mails. The phone calls. It has been 9 days now. During each I have remained completely composed in front of Benjamin.

The sick fairies spared John Bear and I the vomiting but left us with severe headaches and congestion. Benjamin pukes like a champ by the way. […]

It doesn’t feel like New Year’s Eve. Something is off and I’m not quite sure what. Maybe it’s the remnants of the flu or this nasty winter weather but my energy level has been much lower than normal. Perhaps I’m burnt out? It’s a very real possibility. I work like a mad woman. If I’m […]

The Rabbit Hole

November 2, 2008

Maybe I’m just in a giddy mood. Or maybe I have a very literal sense of humor. But this comment left by Mom Cat under my Ultimate Single Mom Contest post still has me giggling. I asked you all why you love being a single mom, here is her reason: “My house is mine again… […]
