Goodnight Little House

Because if your sister gets a barrette…

Just the Beginning

Gabe left for our new house this morning but not without drama. At 5:15 am, Sid escaped. It was dark and chilly and too early to be yelling for a cat. The biggest problem here is that Gabe was taking the cats with him. The Goon Squad and I leave tomorrow. Sid was gone for […]

Can’t talk – Football

I’d love to sit and tell all of you about how I spent 10 hours at my house with the movers yesterday, or how I bought my very first present for anyone today, or about all of the ways the kids are trying to destroy my parents house, or give you ten reasons why I […]

You Say It’s Your Birthday

Happy birthday to Becky. It’s my birthday too. I am 33 years old today. My birthday wish for today is for the Buccaneers to beat the Patriots. (No offense Dubya, Bill, Jason or any other New England fans).
