May. 31 days. 31 blog posts. While I love this blog and I love writing, I am glad that this marks the end of the WordCount Blogathon 2010. While I often blog on the weekend, I usually feel okay skipping a day. The Blogathon made that impossible. It was a fun exercise, though. I found […]

This week we spent the early evening at Brooklyn Bowl, which, to me, is really just a club that happens to also have bowling lanes. It was a launch party event for Yo Gabba Gabba’s live show. My big girl has watched the show. My baby, who won’t turn two until the end of June, […]

Yawn. I am exhausted today. I was up late last night because we started looking at old videos and didn’t turn the camera off until the week hours of the night. There was a lot to go through. (We got our first video camera in August of 2003. We stopped using it early 2009 when […]

Over the past 24 hours we’ve had three instances of customer service via Twitter and all I can say is WOW. First, a little background: We own a Kenmore stainless steel refrigerator. It’s about eight years old, but it’s in nice condition. About a year ago it started running all the time. We have an […]

Did you know your tongue is directly connected to your feet? I didn’t, either. This past Saturday I took an amazing class at Little Yoga House. The Anatomy of Breathing. It was taught by Leslie Kaminoff of The Breathing Project. Leslie, who co-authored Yoga Anatomy, was on Long Island for a Long Island Yoga Association […]

One of my newest favorite things took me by surprise: Writing this blog. I’ve been a professional writer for more than a decade. I’ve had my work appear in Woman’s Day, The New York Times, Time Magazine, Parents, and I am certainly proud of that work. However, I was absolutely unprepared for how much I […]

As I sit here nursing a huge shiner — I was walking around in the dark, bent down to pick something up, and smashed my face into the top of the banister — I am very glad that I have a diversion to keep my mind off of my ever-expanding eyelid. Today’s Favorite Things are […]
