consider me crunched

Whoo. Okay, crunch time at work is over, for me. My co-workers have another two weeks of ripping their hair out (so if you pray or light candles or whatever, point that in their direction please, because my brain is fried to a crispy golden brown, so I can only imagine what state they’ll be in by August 1st), but I am technically free. Free to do all the stuff I put off because I was up to my ears in work. Yay! Probably. Continue reading


SO this morning I bounded out of bed, caroling “IT’S TUESDAY!” and scaring the cats, hustled the kids out the door (I’m pretty sure I let them get dressed first) and sat down to watch Act One of Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, all scampery and excited, and…

new niece!

I have another niece! Yay! Her name is Daphne Claire and I can’t wait to meet her (but I’ll have to wait because she’s eight time zones west of me, and I have no idea when we’ll be getting to Denver – the plan was to think about it this year, but Things keep Coming Up, as they tend to do). I wonder who she’ll look like? She was born yesterday, so right now she probably looks like Alien Frog Baby, but bits of the family keep showing up in the next generation, and I find this really, really cool. First Niece looks so much like my mom, and Second Niece looks so much like Ignatz. First Nephew looked a lot like his dad when he was a baby, but not so much now. The Sniglet looked so much like First Nephew when they were babies, but now he doesn’t at all. Or maybe he does, we haven’t seen them together since the Sniglet was a baby. Anyway. An adorable family is now one unit more adorable and I am so pleased.

thirteen years, baby.

That’s how long I’ve been married.

Weird, huh? I suppose I should be writing a long and thoughtful post about What It Means to have been together for all these years, but I don’t have a lot to say about it, beyond, “yep. Still here. Still married.”

you can’t handle the cute

We’re going to go pick out a kitten today! They’re only 4 weeks old right now, so we don’t get to bring him or her home until about this time next month (after London, fortunately) but today we get to go look at little baby kitties I am so excited!1! Continue reading

You don’t have to tell me…

… that I am completely alone in this. I know, I know. Nevertheless:

Aside to Laume: thank you for much food for thought and reassurance. Will definitely ponder your words.

It’s not just me.
