My little Hulkling.

I’m lucky. My boys are pretty darn good. They’re compassionate, empathetic and just out and out nice kids. Except for about 10-15% of the time. Then I wonder where I went wrong. Sunday was one of those days. We went to Disneyland (we have annual passes) and while we got a bit of a late

Olympic MANIA

I am obsessed with the Olympics. Even the Winter Olympics. I will always clear my schedule to watch the Opening and Closing ceremonies. I loved the Opening Ceremonies last night. It felt like a very personal love letter to the United Kingdom, proclaiming that this is who they are and what makes them amazing. And

Play nice, Geeks!

At this rate, I’m never going to blog about my vacation. It would seem that the new thing to do to get some page views is to suggest that most attractive female geeks are posers. Sometimes it’s just done by drunken idiots (like the guy who tweeted about Felicia Day being a fake geek without

8 years!

Today’s my anniversary. 8 years ago, I was lucky enough to be marrying a man I loved deeply then, but even more-so now. We had a lovely ceremony at a building that’s no longer accessible. I would talk about it more, but it’s not available as a venue anymore, since it was bought by Scientologists

RIP Sally Ride

It’s no secret that I wanted to be an astronaut when I was younger. Even after the Challenger explosion happened on my 6th birthday. In fact, the only thing that killed my urge to go into space was the realization that heading into high school, I wasn’t even 5 feet tall. Even then, I painted

At a loss for words

Last night as I went to bed, I watched my timeline preparing to head off to see The Dark Knight Rises. And I longed to be with them. It’s been some time since I’ve gone to a midnight show- it’s hard to manage when you have two little ones. Waking up to hear about the

Calm in the face of madness.

Today was an odd day- I know I was going to start sharing my trip report, but today was just too weird not to blog about right away. Earlier this week, I tried to refill my medication, but CVS didn’t have it in stock. So I had to wait. On the way back from the

I’m back!

Today’s post is going to have to be a short one. Most people come back from vacations with a ton of dirty laundry and a cold- I have a migraine. Obviously, I survived without having internet in the room. I might have had to recharge my phone twice each day- but I survived. (And that

What will I do?

I had a blog post ready to go on my laptop… We’re on vacation, you see.  Returning to a hotel we’ve been to several times- only to discover that their wifi isn’t free and I’m not entirely sure what their connection policy entails… So no internet. But enjoy this picture of my boys with Mater.

Don’t be that person.

I went to my gastroenterologist yesterday. Things are good. No flare ups. I’m still anemic, but so far as health issues go- I’d rather hear that my anemia is my only problem, as opposed to needing more tests. (this is the initial post about my health issues for those who are newish here) Today, however,
