Today was supposed to be better! And it was… mostly. Ben took the girls out this morning and I had a great visit with my good friend Erin and her sweet little boy. Plus, they brought delicious spanakopita and hummus. What a nice treat! And the girls came back with just enough time to have a quick play date with JJ. Read the rest of this entry »

My viewing selections for tonight include two old episodes of 30 Rock, two episodes of Jacques and Julia Cooking At Home and two episodes of The Golden Girls because it’s been that kind of day. Emotionally I feel a little stretched a little thin. Read the rest of this entry »

So I think I’m going to get rid of all the books I have with ideas about things to make out of paper because apparently my kids don’t need the inspiration. I did groceries yesterday and Chase promptly commandeered a bag. Read the rest of this entry »

85 degrees in March? I’m already sleeping in shorts and a tank. This perfectly-timed-to-beat-the -heat pregnancy thing isn’t exactly working out. The windows are open, I’m down to just the sheet. I mean, honestly. I can’t pare it down very much more. Read the rest of this entry »

I sit here writing this while I wait for my baked apples to finish up in the oven. Today was better than yesterday. I got some work done, went to the doctor ALONE, treated myself to lunch AND made dinner without too much fussing.

So I still haven’t charged my camera battery but I’m giving myself a pass because it’s mostly because I’m still feeling under the weather. You know when you can feel the giant circles under your eyes? I feel like that. There’s a little tickle in my throat and I’m tired and I can’t. stop. complaining.
My biggest complaint is about food. I’m so tired of eating food. Coming up with things to eat all day long is tiresome. I’m hungry but have no appetite. Nothing appeals to me. Makes mealtimes fun. Lots of fun.
I managed to throw together some mac and cheese for dinner. Mac and cheese and fruit salad. With hot sauce (for the mac and cheese not the fruit salad). Something finally hit the spot! Hit the spot so well that there’s one serving left that I’m reasonably certain won’t last until tomorrow. Success! And I’m happy… until I have to do it all over again tomorrow.
What else is going on? While I think this song is catchy and easy to listen to but the day that one of my children asks me what it means to come out of a “lady hole” is the day I refer them to the WTMD pledge line for more information. Honestly, the questions will come do they need the encouragement?
I steamed green beans for dinner last night and when I described said vegetable as beans Avery was indignant. She was emphatic that they were certainly NOT beans. And while she agreed that they were tasty and ate them she refused to refer to them by their name. Beans, apparently, should only be of the black and pinto varieties.
One day I’ll be into coffee again and when that day comes I’ll be brewing a batch of this
Pomegranate limeade from Trader Joe’s? Get some.
That’s it. Now for a cup of tea and to try again tomorrow.

Everyday for the last three at least I’ve promised myself to take a picture of… something… anything. Part of the problem is that the battery in my camera is dead. It’s a problem. I need to fix that. Read the rest of this entry »

That’s sort of what we’ve got going on here but we’re having fun. We finally (finally!) have a working record player. It only took one failed win on Ebay (anyone need a broken record player?) and two trips to Essex to get it all sorted out but I did it. And, as the label on the machine insists, it’s Musictime!

Can you believe this weather? Yesterday one of my friend brought up root beer floats in casual conversation and how they’re just right for this time of year when it’s way warmer than you expect it to be and you’re always a little overdressed. Why, yes, I think that exactly describes it. So while I was out picking up bread today I also picked up the fixins for floats (and some peach sorbet and Haagen Dasz ice cream bars). They were so good. So, so good. Read the rest of this entry »
