Happy Birthday to my one and only brother!! (a wee bit belated)
My brother Jonah is a free spirit. He works on an island in the summers, taking out deep sea fishing charters, landscaping, house painting, and delivering pizzas. But then he spends the rest of the year traveling the world and surfing.
I know, sounds tempting [...]

May 17th was my sister Alia’s 30th birthday. She invited everyone to her farm in Vermont for a huge celebration/work weekend. I flew up to Boston on Thursday after work to join in the fun.
I met my baby sister Maria - she’s 24 now, so maybe I need to stop calling her ‘baby’…
my mom, and [...]
Captain Smarty Pants sent me an article the other day called “Mothers’ talk is key to kids’ social skills, study says” so of course I started worrying and wondering if we provide enough emotional cues for our boys. Then I remembered something.

I almost killed my entire family yesterday.
I know, that sounds crazy, and not something one should make a joke about, so let me be more specific. I drove my husband and sons within hundreds of feet of a tornado yesterday.
We missed it literally by 1 to 3 minutes and I could see the swirling clouds [...]

This is too cool. Out of the blue, Missie over at Sykin’s One Stop Etsy Shopping Guide e-mailed me to tell me that she had featured Karen’s Kitsch’s etsy shop on her blog.
Like I said, too cool right? Anyhoo, Missie is a fellow Twilight fan and has a neato shop with Twilight inspired stuff on [...]
Quinn has had a fever since Saturday. It has spiked up and down. He is a little pathetic sick man in the morning, does okay during the day and then around 4 o’clock starts to decline again into little sick man mode just in time for Captain Smarty Pants and I to get home from [...]
I’ve been working in an office for a little over a month now. I’ve chronicled a little bit of my forced wardrobe acclimation woes and my re-remembered loathing for tights and pantyhose, but really, I kind of like wearing nice, put together clothes for a change. However, something strange keeps happening to me.
I keep catching [...]
