Much was asked, so much is required…

  Photo Credit: Me! And the Outer Banks. And the Atlantic Ocean. And the Sky….   Happy Monday to you, dear readers. I cannot believe that this is the 29th of April, the last Monday of what has been an extraordinary month. Where did the time go? I’m pretty sure that we started this month…

Really?: Mean Girl Mamas

  Photo Credit: PregTastic Spring is here, but in a very tepid kind of way. New green has emerged from some of the trees, but since temperatures were down in the mid-thirties last night, some of the trees are still bare, or budding at best. Yesterday, though, it hit the mid-60s, and people were out and about….

Ain’t I A Voting Woman?

  After the world went absolutely crazy last week, I was reminded with the return of ads and debates that there is a special election here in Massachusetts. We have a primary here next week, and I must say, the field on both sides is rather bleak.  I’m a registered Democrat, and the two candidates…

We’re still ok…

  I don’t know what is wrong with the world. I’m from the DC area, I was a senior and high school during 9/11 and a freshman in college during the DC Sniper incident. This whole week has been that stressful–just holding our breath until things get better.  Watertown is south west of me. My…

In Want of Air…

    I have been overwhelmed by the bombing. I wasn’t there, I haven’t lost anyone, but being in this area for the last 72 hours with my two boys and no husband (he’s traveling) has been exhausting. The city is on edge, everyone sees the buggy man (or package) around every corner. The news…

When Major Publications Choose to Demonize My Marriage

I’m a little up-in-arms today. I was minding my own business on Monday night when, as usual, Facebook destroyed my happy balance. Essence Magazine has a love/sex advice column, and this time around, they decided to tackle an interracial marriage. So as to stop you from having to venture too far away, let me quote…

Raw Vitamin D does a body good…

I had maintenance come by and put the screen into our balcony door today. I have decided that we have to welcome Spring with open arms, inviting her to join us. She wants us to want her. We must show her our desire. So I had the screen put in the balcony door. It is only maybe 55ish…

It’s weeks like this…

  The boys didn’t nap today. As I type this, they are in the play area temporarily not paying attention to me. I know that this moment is incredibly fleeting. Eventually one will piss of the other, and I’l be refereeing again. Though I know that the two of them are tired, they chose to…
