Is English his second language?

GABE: “Mom?” ME: “What?” GABE: “Can I have a speak to you?” ME: “Uh, sure.” GABE: “Well, a kiss from me to you can I have?” ME: “Wha-aaa?” GABE: “A kiss from me to you? I can have?” ME: “Sure thing?” He bows his head so I can kiss his forehead, and then he walks …

Okay

Got some “stuff” going on around here. Possibly very good stuff, but I’ll be able to talk about it in a few days. It’s sort of got me preoccupied at the moment, leaving not much room for anything else. I don’t like being cryptic, and thank God this isn’t happening in the days before April …

Sigg-ah-Sigg-ah

I drink a lot of water these days. Mostly, I’ve been buying flats of bottled water. I did this because: A) I hate the taste of tap water, B) I’m too lazy to fill the filter pitcher we have, and C) For some reason, I drink more from a bottle than I do from a …

Huh.

Schmap, East Coast museums. Hover your mouse on the USS Constellation, and watch the pictures go by. Hey, that’s my name! 🙂

ACS Race Report

Well, it was freezing out. I mean, it might, just barely, have reached into the 40’s, but it was extremely windy and gray, so that it felt much colder than it probably was. The other woman from the family club who was supposed to do the run with me (she was going to walk, though) …

Batten down the hatches!

Thunderstorms this afternoon. I love a good storm, and it annoys me when the weather sites and channels freak the holy heck out over them. Instead of just “Storms” for current conditions, weather.com is saying “Storms in the vicinity,” as though the thunder is lurking around corners and waiting to steal women’s purses. 🙄 And …

Sam the Spiritual

Honestly, I could probably create a whole subcategory for Sam’s spiritual observations and developments. This kid gets deep sometimes in ways that just boggle my adult mind. Last night was the last Bible Blast night, with an awards presentation included. Every child who did memorization work or took the weekly quizzes got an “Achiever” trophy. …

Do-over?

Awww, I can already tell it’s going to be just a fantastic day. Any day that features me standing on my front porch at 8:00 in the morning, wearing a skimpy nightgown, hollering, “RUN, GABE! FASTER, FASTER! NO, DON’T CROSS THE STREET! SAM! SAM! COME GET THE BOX FROM GABE! IT WAS DUE TODAY, NOT …

Good Mo-or-ning…

(Because half the time that I say that common phrase, I get the beginning of Act 1, Scene 1 of Peter Grimes all stuck in my head, and I very nearly feel the need to also add, “Oh, hang at open doors!” The risks of having studied music, I guess. 😉 Grimes is particularly insidious …
