I got a card in the mail today from a neighborhood woman. I told her about the miscarriage when she called to ask me to send out an email for a local organization. At the time, she was so sweet, telling me how sorry she was for our loss. We got off the phone and [...]

Long-time readers of this blog may be wondering why I’ve been posting less. Others may have a more direct question: Why have I been so quiet about myself? I guess it’s time to answer. My focus outward has been brewing for about six months or so, but it became more pressing about a month or [...]

Big Girl is doing a 50 states lesson in school. The kids are supposed to go out and ask friends and family to send them postcards from whatever states they live in. Cute idea, but could we actually get postcards from every state? I wasn’t sure. I started with my address book. We’ve got family [...]

Be a Friend to Make a Friend

Today is a snow day here in New York. Hubby got up and, because he takes a train to work, was able to go off to the city. Me? I was at home with both kids. No babysitters in sight. We did a bunch of stuff to keep busy and have fun. I had Big [...]

Maybe it’s the money thing. Maybe it’s a self-esteem thing. (Do I really deserve something so extravagant?) No matter, I am [...]

Yesterday, four people neglected to pick up their CSA boxes. Four! That meant that I had more than 100 carrots, eight bunches of broccoli, four large bags of potatoes, four large bags of sweet potatoes, four butternut squashes — there was a lot more, but you get the picture. A lot of fresh, organic produce. [...]

It’s Not About You — I Promise

Recently, someone asked me if a particular post I had up was about them. It’s not the first time — or the last, I fear — that someone, out of the blue, asked me if they were the subject of my blog. In the past, I’ve even had people ask me not to blog about [...]

The notebook lay open on the counter. I didn’t recognize Big Girl’s scrawl so I picked it up for a closer look. There, on the page, was the following: “Bring it tomorrow and you said if you don’t I could punch you thank you good night.” WTF?!? I called Big Girl into the kitchen. What [...]
