Miracles Never Cease

Christmas miracles are all around, people. Like that time our family Christmas party went from non-event to total party practically over night. (Okay, so maybe it was really over a year, but such is the nature of Christmas parties.) Or that other time when H&M tried to trap us in their store but we managed […]

About That Marathon

If I’m being honest with myself, which I try to do, I was really disappointed in the showing of the Americans the New York City Marathon on Sunday. My heart sank each time I furtively checked my Twitter feed during Sunday School for the latest on the standings. At first Meb was hanging with the […]

All of These Punkins . . .

are hoping you had a magical Halloween . . . especially that magician’s assistant at the bottom. Little firecracker, that one!   Oh, and me too. I’m hoping you had a fun Halloween. And that even if you stayed up until 2am working on costumes and wondering how things were ever going to come together so that […]

Disney Baby Giveaway!

A little while ago, we were invited to see some of Disney’s new looks for babies. Tigger was there. Manchild acted like they were long lost buddies, which was great because Tigger acted that way too. I mean, they even co-ordinated the orange stripes, so there you have it. Totally on the same wavelength. Pooh […]

George Sheehan Is My Homeboy

Quick reminder: I’m taking my survey down tomorrow, so if you haven’t taken it yet, please take a minute or two to help me out. It’s only 5 questions. Thanks!! I’ve been holding out on you. I read a book. Several weeks ago. About running. And I loved it. And I didn’t tell you about […]


Last week a package came in the mail. I wasn’t expecting anything from Amazon, and my new swimming suit wasn’t due to arrive for a few days, so it threw me for a loop. But the boys, of course, were totally up for a surprise. We opened the box and found this: A beach bag. […]


I am a wanderer. I knew that already. And today I got to wander around and release some of the stress and frustration that happened yesterday when I “missed” my flight – or they wouldn’t let me on board because I was there 41 minutes early instead of 45. (I think if they had realized […]

Weekly Retrospective

All of our wildest dreams have (sort of) come true. It was just a few months ago, it seems, that we were dreaming of a family bike. In our imagination, there was a seat on the front for Little Miss, a seat on the back for Squish, Manchild would sit on the cargo rack and […]

Altra ZeroDrop Review

We were in Boston waiting for the train that would take us to church on Sunday. There was a guy standing there, in a collared shirt and tie, eyeing us. I tried not to look like I was eyeing him, but I had my suspicions that he was going to church, too. Probably ours. Well, […]

Some Questions Worth Asking*

Why must something be either good or bad? Why can’t it just be? Why don’t I just wait and see? What do I fear? What do I really fear? Danger? Failure? Disappointment? Success? Do I give my family all of my burnt cookies? Do I let my children know they are wanted? Every day? What […]
