Starbucks and Art

TheBoy was running late from work and wasn’t answering his phone. This wouldn’t normally be a problem, but right now- we share a car. Normally I’d have been tearing out my hair wondering how I was going to get my kids to school, but my mother-in-law hadn’t driven her SUV to work, and that has

I’d forget my head if it weren’t attached…

I used to be organized. Amidst the clutter of my desk, I always knew where everything was. I would remember everything- my phone, keys, etc. etc. After the Oldest was born, not much changed. After the Youngest Kidlet was born, everything changed- especially once he was diagnosed with allergies. Suddenly I had two sets of

Quick little post

Just a quick post before we head out to start our day. I’m told it won’t be as hot as yesterday. Which would be welcome. It was horrible. The Guardian had this lovely story: This is a news website article about a scientific paper. As someone who reads about science news on the internet, this

Isn’t it ironic?

So, the man who owned the company that makes Segway died in a freak Segway accident. While it isn’t ironic, Alanis, it’s tragic. And sadly, it is a little funny. Just like discovering what feels like the missing piece to the puzzle that is a novel when I know I don’t have any free time

You’re kidding right?

It can’t be Saturday already. It seems like it was just Monday, even though that was one of the longest weeks I’ve had in ages. The rundown- my oldest started the week with a cough, after a total of 7 days at preschool. It seems like it should be a record. He never spiked a

Midweek blahs.

Well, it was bound to happen. The oldest kidlet has started preschool, and he has a cold. He’s coughed his voice into oblivion- not because there’s a drip or anything, but because he starts trying to clear his throat, which irritates it and makes him cough more. So he clears his throat. Seriously, he seem

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

The latest effort to end Don’t Ask Don’t Tell stalled in Congress today. Conservatives and anti-gay groups will tell you that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is vital to the safety of our troops. Gay soldiers isn’t the biggest threat that our soldiers face- politicians are. They want you to believe that gay people are inherently

Guilty Confession time

My youngest son still uses a bottle. Yeah, he’s had teeth for awhile and yeah… I know we should have gotten him from it. But he’s out and out refused every cup we’ve tried with him. Every couple months we try. But today, he bit through the last nipple we’d had, so I’m forcing him.

Fire, no sleep, and someone needs to get fired.

Right now there’s a fire burning up in the hills between Whittier and Hacienda Heights (they’ve dubbed it the Colima Incident). It started yesterday afternoon and is apparently contained- of course, I had to wait until this morning to find that out. I wish that local news would keep up with these things around the

It’s Tuesday already?

You know, nothing makes me laugh more than comment spam. Seriously! Sometimes it’s the typos, sometimes it’s that it was obviously translated from Russian to some other language and then English. But mostly, it’s that my blog has plenty of posts that these comments might apply to- but not on the post it was submitted
