The Care and Keeping of Magic

  While my blog has been broken forever (or at least since February) some headway seems to have been made on fixing the font issues. Still can’t see images (hence no “They Coulda’ Been Great” monthly posts – expect a monster one as soon as everything is back to normal) – but that’s not required…

  The holidays are all about extremes. Peace on earth! Goodwill to men! Black Friday mobs! Road Rage over hour-long back ups! But that’s life, right? Every high is balanced by a low. And over the holidays, I combine the two like that last cocktail you didn’t really need…shaken or stirred…mixed or mingled…blended or beaten…

They Coulda’ Been Great: September 2013

A little look back at September via Facebook… (What is this? All answers are HERE.) September 2 1:12 p.m. George: Dad, why is juggling free? Chris: What? George: Why is juggling free? Chris: Juggling is what? George: FREE! Why is juggling FREE? Chris: I have no idea what you are talking about. George: Why is…

They Coulda’ Been Great: August 2013

A little look back at August via Facebook… (What is this? All answers are HERE.) August 3 7:43 p.m. “I like to do like this…makes me look old.” August 4 8:22 a.m. So chronic lower back pain seems to be part of my life now… Feels like just yesterday my worst “getting old” complaint was…

They Coulda’ Been Great: July 2013

  Another month has passed and exactly 0 blog posts have been written. Some good Facebook activity of course! So here are the “coulda’ been’s” (no idea what I’m talking about? Explanation HERE.) July 1 3:30 p.m. Earlier at the pediatrician, Eleanor suggested that doctors look in your ears so they could see your brain….

They Coulda’ Been Great! May-June 2013

  Hi Mom, Chris, Nancy and the other 98% of my family (and a few of my best friends who aren’t on Facebook)! You know how you never check my blog anymore because I NEVER post anything anymore? And how I always say it’s because I’m so busy and that’s only 50% true because the…

They Coulda’ Been Great: 2012

  8/21/13 I know… A “They Coulda’ Been Great” post for ALL of 2012. AllOFIT. Oh – there’s not that much of it – I was a sporadic poster that year. I’ve had so much fun looking back at the silliness evidenced in my 2013 Facebook status updates, that I decided to stroll down memory…

Hi! My name is Alice and I’m (supposedly) five months old. I’m a rescue dog but I’m (mostly) house broken and only puke once a day. I can’t tell you why I puke every day, but man is it fun to see my owner, Kate freak out over it. Apparently this┬ápuke thing is gross. But…

I think I’ve mentioned before that we don’t even bother with the cuter, less crude terms for passing gas in my house. Since I, personally never brought it up, my children first learned what this bodily function was called from my husband. And no amount of “call it ‘tooting’ please” admonishing has any effect on…

Sorry Pixar – You Can’t Make this Cute.

It was a beautiful early autumn day in our suburban corner of the Northern Virginia woods. And instead of spending the afternoon at the playground with my children, I sat on our back deck sterilizing vacuum cleaners. Now, I’ve always made an effort to keep my vacuum cleaners in good condition since I finally figured…
