Back in April, Kalyn posted a question to me here. I tactfully (or perhaps not so tactfully) ignored it because it wasn’t one I was ready to answer in public. But I think I have waited a sufficient amount of time now. So, the answer is yes, Kalyn, I am pregnant. Will, my sweet little […]

When I was a little girl, my grandmother and I would go every year to a pick-your-own strawberry patch near our home in Dutchess County, New York.

Thank you to all the well wishers who commented on Will being under the weather. Thankfully, he is feeling better now – though his stomach is still sensitive and milk is not his friend. Being that milk is his favorite drink, it stinks for him because that’s what he wants most. But I am doing […]

Well, Will’s ailment has infected our whole household. For Shawn, it started on Valentine’s Day, one day after Will first became sick. And while I did make an abbreviated dinner like Virtual Frolic suggested (I did the chicken, potatoes and mini cakes and skipped the rest), it wasn’t a pleasurable meal. The only really good […]
