One of those states in the middle that starts with “I”, Alex

TweetThe plan was to wake up at 6am, eat, get picked up at 7:45 and driven to the Westchester County airport. I woke up at 6, no trouble. But a second call came at 6:03. The call every traveler dreads – my flight had been canceled. Gulp. Luckily, my trip was arranged through Seagate Travel […]

Connnneccticcut

TweetI’ve always had trouble spelling the name of this state. New thing of the day: I flew on Independence Air, a small airline that flies between smaller cities. Cool thing about this company: their stupid safety instructions (like showing you how to buckle your seat belt) are delivered by comedian Dennis Miller who manages to […]

Stop The Presses!!

TweetI found the lost Easter egg!! (Go me-e! Go me-e!) In previous years, it took four and then six months to find the Easter egg (yes, a real hard-boiled egg) that I oh-so, oh-too cleverly hid. And for the past 24 hours my family has been mercilessly teasing me because yep, I did it again. […]

I hate reality on rainy Mondays

Tweet*caution – sighing and pouting ahead* The weekend was a blast. We laughed, we ate, we made fun of each other, we walked the dog – perfect family get-together. The only problem was that it ended. Stef went back to college last night. BH and the CWF have to leave today. I’m on my way […]

Family Day

TweetAaahh, the bickering, the squabbles, the minor, constant, petty irritations. And the fangs. Stef and Mer are home at the same time. But don’t worry, the fangs belong to the dog, not the daughters. It’s actually really nice to have almost everyone here (the other two kids are up in New York) – loud and […]

Mail Call – long post

TweetSleep is a great thing. I got 11 hours of it last night and I feel superhuman. I woke up a couple times during the night and didn’t know where I was. I have five more weeks of travel ahead. By the end of this spring I’m going to have to get my name and […]

And away it goes!

Tweet*dancing in glee around living room* It’s off!!! The historical picture book manuscript I’ve been working on for the last two years is in (what I hope) is its final form and is now winging its way to my editor. I know I’ll have to revise it again – that’s a given. I will also […]

Can I go back to bed?

TweetIcky, scary dream last night. A cancer nightmare. Makes me want to go back to sleep so I stop thinking about it. But if I go back to sleep, I might wind up stuck in it again. I hate this. Going to take Mer to school, then buy a gallon of coffee at Wawa. It’s […]
