Thank you Irene….

Irene did something amazing for me this weekend. She let me be lazy. Totally. Completely. Lazy. And it was great. I did babysit my nieces on Friday and take M. and L. to get feathers in their hair as a back to school treat, but after that I went to Chris’ and was heavenly, slovenly…

Crankies

I know they say that mood is just mind over matter, but tonight I am not agreeing. I am cranky, grouchy whatever you want to call it, and no amount of happy-go-lucky self-talk is going to make me feel better. The upside is that I know moods pass and this one will too. The crankies…

letter happiness

Today was OK for a Monday. A friend of mine got a call for a job interview she has been hoping for. No one freaked out at work. I got to eat lunch outside in the most gorgeous weather ever today, and I stopped and bought myself a little pick me up (even though I…

transitions

Rumor has it that Fall is just around the corner. I am still living in denial; fierce denial of this unavoidable fact. Living in New England summers are short. Three months. Ninety days. I like the Fall I really do, but I am not ready to let go of summer yet. I need to find…

Quiet Times

These days I have had off in August have been much quieter than the days I had off in July. It has been more of a lazy time to relax, rather than days filled with summer adventures. I guess this is ok. Good in its own way. Except that summer is almost over and I…

It Is Personal….

I’m having a hard time figuring out the whole realtionship thing. I never did get to see Chris this weekend. Friday and Saturday were tied up for me with work, and Sunday he ended up stuck in CT traffic longer than expected dropping off his kids. I am not overly upset about not seeing him,…

“Progressing Well?!?”

Referring to a big deliverable I have at work this weekend… “…Hope you are progressing well to a successful Sat…” Really? Are you my boyfriend or my business partner? I’m just sayin’ – who says that?!

Eons & Anniversaries

Yes it has been another bunch of eons since I have updated. I am having a good summer. Right now I am sitting on my back patio, sweating like crazy (which is so much better than sitting in my office freezing), drinking a beer – yeah I know don’t fall over – I had a…

Happy 4th of July

All great things must come to an end. How cliche is that? But gosh don’t I feel this way at the end of every good weekend. Yesterday CTR, the kids and I headed to Walden Pond and it was so nice to swim! It sounds crazy I know but I don’t get to actually swim…

Long Weekend – Part I

The first half of this 4th of July weekend was kicked off with a bang. CTR came over yesterday and we headed into Boston to walk along the Seaport. We had a drink at the infamous Barking Crab. It was crowded and we didn’t stay there for dinner since it can be kind of tourist trappy…
