Back in December, at Velocikitty’s suggestion, I installed a Theme Switcher to let my readers choose how my blog was presented.  But, in my mindful meanderings today (when I should have been working), it occurred to me that now I have no idea what the heck most of you SEE anymore when you read my blog. […]

Wow.  I want to say thanks to Gerbil at There’s a Penguin on the Telly for giving me my first (and only) blogger award.  She just tagged me as a “Thinking Blogger”:  The flag above will take you back to the origin of the award. Now, I am charged with the task of passing on the love, […]

I have been tagged by Jodi to participate in the Real Mom meme that has been working it’s way across the Mom circuit.  Basically the rules are this:  Put up a post “Real Moms [insert what you do here]”, followed by an explanation, a picture, and a “Real Moms. Making ….”. Then tag five people. If […]

It took a full two months before the act of delivering my son to his daycare facility didn’t end in a veritable fountain of Harry tears, two little outstretched arms, and an absolutely heartrending chorus of “Noooooooooo!”.  I have a very good daycare.   The teachers are kind, affectionate and attentive.  The atmosphere is homey, if a […]

At the risk of losing my “mommyblogger” title, I suppose the time has come to throw in a “Harry” post.  But it may not be the one you were expecting.   I have been watching one of my son’s prodigious growth spurts lately in amazement.  There is almost none of the baby that I snuggled in […]

I’m back.   Sunburned, bruised, still damned tired (hence my extra day of blogging absence), but more or less back. I could give you a rundown of the highlights and down-lows of my week, but what it comes back to is friendships.  I got to spend a lot of quality time with people I don’t see […]

In accordance with one of the many laws of Murphy, I have contracted rotavirus from my son (courtesy of the bacterial cesspool alternately termed “daycare”) just in time to take my vacation.  Trying to find a silver lining in my misery, I am comforted only that I will start my vacation with a clean colon […]

Folks, during the 5-Minutes-for-Mom Blog Party, I got a comment from a blogger whose blog I hadn’t surfed through yet.  So I went.  And I read the whole thing. Now, normally, I don’t do these party-socialization-type things.  For those of you who know me in person, you know why.  I am of the solitary-bordering-on-antisocial-intimate-gatherings-are-okay kind […]

Seeing as how it looks like only two of us managed to actually read last month’s GAMBLE selection (which I am marking off to the “Holy Shite, it’s only xx weeks to Gulf Wars!” syndrome), I suppose that it doesn’t matter that this month’s book introduction is a wee bit on the tardy side.  If […]

Can chocolate cake be written off as a business expense? Because I could SO use a huge honkin’ slice right about now.
