[Quiet Thoughts] Remember the Simple Things

Photo: Today is a perfect day to break out one of the beach sunrise pictures I took last September. First of all, there is snow everywhere here in Massachusetts and I’m already sick of looking at it. Second of all, it is perfect for the beginning of my post. Third of all, the camera on…

Messy Times with Toddlers

  I wrote a post this morning and it was a little over-the-top. I read it over three times before just discarding it. What is the point of having a blog if it is just full of bitching and moaning? Clearly, that’s not why ya’ll tune in! So then I did some cleaning, and I…

I Can See it on the Horizon

Mission Impossible!   I did not get to have the pleasure of turning in Ursa Minor’s preschool application in front of Peggy…

  Photo: The two little bears discovered the train tracks behind the house. They were so happy when they figured out what is behind the neeewwwww house. December 28th. That’s the move date. Or, at least, that’s the stuff move date. That’s the out of this place move date. It’s the husband, at least, lives in the house move…
