The #1 Diet Plan IN THE WORLD

It’s official – as of this morning, I am down to pre-pregnancy weight.  I would prefer to be another 2.5 pounds lighter than that, but I’ll take this for now.  Nothing like a good dose of the flu to dwindle your weight down to nothing!  Even the Tech Guru looks lighter, and although the scale […]

Coughing and Sniffing and Sneezing, Oh My!

We have all been sick. ALL of us. First Punksin was sick. As you may recall, though, it was a light cough here, a runny nose there, and she was pretty much done. Her father, her brother and I, on the other hand, have not fared so well. Pudding has sneezed out such copious amounts […]

Happy Birthday Punksin!

Today is the Punksin’s birthday.  I have to tell you, it all feels rather anti-climactic to me, given the whole blowout weekend we just had.  I’m exhausted. And I rebelled against sending her in with cake or cupcakes or cookies or anything this morning.  I mean, come on.  We just invited all these little twerps […]

Hi-5 Might Be Higher Than You Think

It was a loooooooooonnng weekend. I felt as though most of last week was consumed with preparations for Punksin’s birthday party. She is only turning 4 and trust me, we did not have the NYC type of party where I flew in Celine Dion or Hannah Montana to sing Happy Birthday. It was pretty simple: […]

The Real World, the New Jersey Episode

Parents: Do you ever get the feeling that, no matter how progressive you think you are, no matter how you’ve sworn not to make certain mistakes, no matter how enlightened your theories on parenting are, that somehow, in practice, you are actually Fucking It All Up? That no matter what you do, somehow your kids […]

The Iceman Cometh

We just got walloped with some snow.  More ice than snow, really, and because it’s above freezing now the crap is melting everywhere.  I had to lift Punksin over some monster-sized puddles this morning. Have I mentioned? I hate winter. Really. I do not like snow.  I do not like the cold. I do not […]

Resolutions

As you may recall, I was mulling over a job offer.  The job sounded great – well, the opportunity was great but the salary, not so much.  But the job as a Lecture Agent sounded exciting, with the chance to represent a pretty solid stable of influential thought-provoking writers. I tossed.  I turned.  I spoke […]
