Heads Up

I think Ima start blogging again. Consider yourself warned.


I know. I KNOW!! Here I was going to post more regularly and I haven’t been keeping up. AND I need to write up the Sprout’s one year letter before she turns TWO or something and … I know. I just keep not having a spare moment, or when I do, I’m using it to […]

Willkommen, Bienvenue, etc., etc.

Howdy, y’all! Welcome to the new digs! I’m still refining the site – Mr. Squab is designing me some graphics and I’m monkeying around with colors and widgets and stuff, but the basics are all here. Check out the top left menu with the “About” page, and note the new contact info. I’m hoping this […]


So my comments system (Haloscan) went belly up, and I’m using it as an excuse to give this here tired ole blog a bit of a facelift. However, as I am strictly amateur at this interwebz design stuff, it may take a little while to work out all the glitches. Just wanted to let you […]

Apparently my life is currently incompatible with blogging

It’s not like things haven’t been happening. The Sprout turned 3 months old, the Hatchling is coming up with new catchphrases and other awesomeness all the time, Mr. Squab and I celebrated our 7th anniversary, I finished rereading the entire Harry Potter series – I mean, the days are filled. Just not so much with […]


I swear, this pregnancy is making me a total klutz. I’m not saying that I’m the epitome of grace at the best of times, but the last two weeks my level of physical ineptitude has really gotten ridiculous. I can’t fix a meal without dropping at least three key items on the floor. I can […]

In other blogging news …

So I just spent some time last night on updating my other blog and was planning on having an advent extravaganza of posting to make up for not having posted on it for, like, two months, but then Google disabled it sometime in the wee hours of the morning because it thought it was a […]


I’m currently at an undisclosed cabin location somewhere in western Wisconsin, enjoying a week “off” with family and friends. Blogging will be light to nonexistent, much like the DSL signal here. Regular blogging will resume next week. In the meantime, here’s hoping that Gustav calms the fuck down and leaves the Louisiana coast alone.

A New Venture

I’ve started a new blog that some of you might be interested in. It’s a vehicle for an abiding interest of mine, children’s literature, and it’s something I’d been thinking of doing for a while now. Basically it’s a recommendation site, where I can review and advocate for some of my favorite “must-read” children’s books, […]

Merely Resting

I’m not dead. Sorry for the lack of posting – it’s just been one of those weeks. It’s not that we’re particularly busy, it’s just that there’s insomnia, and summer colds, and errands to run and playdates to schedule and somehow the blogging doesn’t happen. We’ll try to be better this weekend.
