I survived! Now where’s my tshirt?

Yesterday was probably one of the busiest days I’ve had in awhile, and yet, I know that it’s just the warm up to what the next 14 years will be like. Aside from the usual dropping the kids off at both schools and pick them up routine, I also had to take them both to

Tuesday, and my brain is everywhere.

I finally got my Pottermore email. So far I’m loving what I’m seeing. I had a blast shopping on Diagon Alley- I bought a tabby cat for my pet. For those who are surprised- my first cat was named Griffin. He was a sweet little tabby. Well, sweet to me. He sort of hated anyone

Dear Pottermore

Dear Pottermore, I struggled to find the Magical Quill to gain early entry to Pottermore (mostly because the first few were released at times that were good for people in the UK, but not so wonderful for a West Coaster like me), but I did it! I have my first email congratulating me and a

The Wired Mom’s Rules for Twitter

I know, I’m not an expert on Twitter. I don’t have a zillion followers. But I do use Twitter regularly, and follow a wide variety of people- friends, companies, celebrities. After almost 5 years on Twitter (I know, I can’t believe it), I’ve set up these rules for myself that I use as a little

Julie Bowen, I get you.

Julie Bowen of Modern Family is coming under fire for her very candid comments on being a mother. At the Governor’s Ball last night, Bowen had this to say to US Magazine: “If I wasn’t a mom, I think it’d be harder to understand what it is to live with a child and hate and

A Tale of Two Schools.

My boys go to two different schools. Not entirely uncommon since one is in preschool and the other in kindergarten, but these two schools feel like two different worlds entirely. The preschool is attached to a private K-8 school. We’d thought about sending the Oldest Kidlet there for kindergarten, but it just wasn’t feasible for

Torchwood : Miracle Day

As River Song would say, “Spoilers.” As in, this post will be full of them if you haven’t seen Torchwood Miracle Day. So… stop now, especially if you haven’t seen the finale. Last chance, I warn you! I liked it. The concept was solid, and I enjoyed the more adult yet very much Doctor Who

Week Two: To Do List

Last week I posted a to do list 1. Finish a draft of Trisha’s drawing. I have been convinced my five pointed stars look horrible- time to just do it. (They aren’t that bad, they just aren’t perfect) 2. Go through clothes and weed out the stuff that doesn’t fit. Or the few nursing shirts

Sunday. 9.11

Sunday was the 10th Anniversary of 9/11. Because it is impossible to forget, I didn’t want to spend my time watching specials produced to keep the wounds fresh. I know, it makes me sound callous. But honestly, I can still see what happened a decade ago. I remember how uncertain I felt, and the way

Missed Opportunities: the new 52.

Now that DC’s New 52 are coming out (those are the 52 titles they’ve rebooted along with the DC Universe), I thought it was time to look at how DC marketed it- especially after reading this great post by Jill Pantozzi about DC’s presence at FanExpo in Canada). So far sales seem to be high,
