A few weeks ago I posted about my brother Brian coming down for a visit.  While he was here we watched a Flyers game.  My brother, being a Flyers fan, really gets into cheering for his team.  Everytime they score a goal, he stands up, throws his hands in the air and shouts “GOAL!!” loudly.  [...]

The First Step.

Is admitting you have a problem.  Everyone knows this.  Even Cookie Monster.  Today on Sesame Street, Cookie Monster seemed to acknowledge his weakness for the cookie.  For those of you who don’t have to watch it, Cookie Monster tells us the letter of the day by holding a cookie with the letter on it while [...]

Scared you didn’t I? No? Try this on for size. As you might be able to tell from this picture, I went to a halloween party last night. Fun was has by all as far as I know. Here’s a picture of me and Laura who was Pippi Longstocking. I was Miss Piggy after going [...]

“You have some spaghetti on your balls” “Please don’t stick your tongue out when your brother kisses you.” Also, click here for a video of Alex getting freaky with a pool noodle or two.  It’s a large file so it may take a few minutes to load.

Are you sick of socks yet?

No?  Good.   That’s Nicks handsome feet in handsome hand knit socks from Grandma.  She’s celebrating Socktoberfest too.  Nick gets to wear them because, after all, he is the oldest.  Those six minutes gotta count for something.  Grandma is knitting away on another pair as I type, though, so Alex won’t have to wait too [...]

I completed my first pair of Socktoberfest socks!  Nevermind that they are both very teeny weeny socks. I do have a couple of regular sized socks on the needles, both about a quarter of the way done. In baby news, I think the Terrible Two’s have struck early here.  And it’s just going to get worse.  [...]

The places we are.

Four of my friends are on their way to Bermuda today on a cruise.  While I couldn’t be happier for them, I am jealous too.  I’m sure they’ll return the favor in 17 years when I get a vacation.  But it got me thinking of all the places I have had the chance to visit.  [...]

Cancer sucks.

18th October 2006 | Closed

I don’t really think we all need an explanation here.  Almost everyone in the country has had cancer touch their lives one way or another.  Recently a friend of mine lost her mother to cancer.  If you can, take a moment to remember those who have lost their battle and to help continue the fight [...]

Oh Shit.

Earlier today I had to go into my bedroom to get something and Alex followed me in.  They love to play in there because they’re not allowed.  Plus they like to flop on my big fluffy pillows. So he’s trying to climb over my pile of shoes when he stumbled and said “oh shit.”‘ Maybe [...]

A Sock is Born

I will start Jaywalker number two this week.  First I really have to buckle down and finish the scarf I’m knitting for my ISE pal.  I only have about another foot which I should be able to complete at work tonight.  Hopefully tomorrow it won’t be raining and I can take a trip to a [...]
