Divorce

No, not mine. I said I wasn’t going to talk about it. I really wasn’t. That was my full intention but after seeing “the episode” of Jon & Kate Plus 8 and  crying over what is happening to them, I am going to talk about it. What I am not going to do, bash them….

Kickin’ the definition of family to the curb

Two years ago this month, after a particularly fantastic day with our nieces during a holiday in Florida, David and I made the crazy decision to ‘try for a family’. It was hardly as clinical as that, and certainly not done with a rational conversation. It was, more,….ahem…in the heat of things, so to speak,…

More odd than nice

We’ve finally gotten Bella to start the night in her bed. The past few nights however we laid her down much too early to get to take advantage of that, she would be waking up ready to eat when we would be going to bed. Well, last night we didn’t put her to bed in…

Straight from the closet – domestic goddess

Why is it that you only hit your holiday stride after a week on holiday? Perhaps I just take that long to de-compress and become a bit more normal. The old biological tock has been tick-tocking and has manifested itself via some rhubarb muffins this morning, the completion of one project and near completion of…
