This Week

May 18, 2010

I was going to write a post about how papa is our new babysitter, much to the delight of the kids, who last week told him that they didn’t really want lunch, they’d be fine with just some ice cream, but then there wasn’t much more to say about that, so instead I decided to […]

Good Bye

May 17, 2010

I don’t mean to alarm you, but it seems like I’ve been living on borrowed time. We should probably say our good byes soon. I’ve been under the care of Dr. Oz, via Oprah, and the news is grim. See, this month’s Oprah magazine has an article about Hurt Alerts– Five Pains That Could Be […]

Home Alone

May 14, 2010

So this week Husbandrinka has been in Poland, auditioning to be the new president or something and I’ve been home with the kids. Well, except when they’re at school, that is, or at one of their million after school activities. Or when they are with mama and papa. But, you know, those other times, they’re […]

Wait Watchers

May 11, 2010

I joined Weight Watchers. Don’t ask. I joined the on-line version, because I just can’t go to meetings. I went once with a friend of mine and it was very uncomfortable because I bought a few of their snacks and then ate them during the meeting and apparently you’re not supposed to do that or […]

One at a Time

May 10, 2010

Lately I’ve been concerned that I don’t have a bucket list.  I have no idea why it’s called a bucket list, I assume because Schindler’s list was already tooken, as my 8 year old insists on saying, no matter how many times I tell him that the past participle of the verb “to take” is […]

Happy Victory Day, Everyone!

May 9, 2010

65 years! Last night Husbandrinka came from Paris (a week early, because he didn’t think that he would fare well in Husbandrinka vs. The Volcano) and I said, “hi, so it’s 65 years tomorrow!” and he looked at me and said, “Huh, in France, they celebrate on May 8th. There was a big flag on […]

If you don’t count the hypocrites, there are two kinds of people in the world. Those who believe in greeting cards and those who don’t understand why you have to pay $4 when you can just call someone and say “Happy Birthday” or “Happy Mother’s Day” or “I’m sorry that I ruined your life”. I’m […]

And Then They Lived Happily Ever After

May 5, 2010

You guys! Did you see that some guy in Germany married his cat? It’s totally true, although I’m happy that another article clarifies that the ceremony was unofficial because marrying animals is not legal in Germany. Oof. I’m so glad that we won the Second World War. (We did, right? It’s ok to get rid […]
