Extreme Home-Do-Over!

I still remember that fateful day, when my husband Garth (not his real name) and I nervously sat down at the conference table, distracting the lawyer long enough to hand us each styrofoam cups of stale coffee and, between the 3 of us, was the only one able to hold a pen steady enough to sign the papers. "I think I'm gonna throw up!" I was a few weeks pregnant with our first daughter (commuting, while under the influence of gestation, sucks wet poodle, btw!) and, well, WE WERE BUYING OUR FIRST HOUSE! "You're young, yet, there's still time." The... Read more →

Hair of BlogHers Past

Only 14 more sleeps until BlogHer '10 and, since this IS my 4th year attending this particular blogging conference (read: proved myself to be a dork, 3 times, for REAL, already!) I feel it safe say, "WHOOT!" and admit that I am sooooooo happy I do NOT HAVE TO worry about flying, you know, in an airplane, or eleventy. Heeeeeeello, NJTransit...it's been a while...how've ya' been, dawg? Still, it can get sorta weird, stepping out from behind one's blog and leaving your delete button, behind (mine is broken, go figure) and, well, it's kind of hard to pass myself off... Read more →

D'oh, There's a Deer in My Garden, Dear Maria, Dear Maria!

This is my paternal great-grandmother, Maria, in Hungary. My father spent many childhood summers, giving up his "city boy ways," living the "simple country life," with Maria (his mother had him late in life and, apparently, he was a handful!) and, according to my father, it was anything and everything...but, simple! Still, as tough as Maria's life was, my father insists that she was the sweetest, kindest, most gentlest person on earth. Unlike, her great-granddaughter (that would be me!) who is about ready to snare her some Bambi! Exhibit A: Deer tracks (post-sprinkler) this morning. No, I don't want to... Read more →

Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Pretending Like It's Two Zero Zero Four

This Full House 2004 Found this picture buried deep in our old desktop's files and, well, ignoring the fact that my laptop is STILL broken is not such a bad thing, after all. Buuuuut, now my face hurts, as I'm seriously considering climbing into the h...e...double hockey sticks of a crawl space over our garage and dusting off the crib...too.
