The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]

Last week was the week when all the spinning plates hit the ground…again. And now, toiling under the dual tyranny of a bad cold and a toddler who has decided that eating dinner is optional, I am trying to pick up all of the shards before leaving for D.C. on Saturday. I think I’d rather […]

This morning, I woke with the realization that my birthday is just over two weeks away. This year has snuck up on me. I feel like I blinked in February and magically transported myself to May like Samantha on Bewitched. So let’s recap my weekend.

This weekend was a tricky one. The warm weather and bright sunshine of last weekend disappeared in a flurry of wet snow trapping our very active 18-month-old in the house with us. Plus, our babysitter cancelled, so neither of us feels ready for the week ahead. But in between making mac-and-cheese and watching Aristocats for […]

Monday Mornings: February 5, 2024

January seemed to last forever. February will likely fly by. But my life is in transition, and I’ve decided to focus my energy on building for spring. As a result my window shopping is looking toward the future.

This weekend, I needed a rest. Our holiday was fun, but far from relaxing.  Luckily, my husband wanted a night out with friends, so I got to spend several hours in bed, with snacks, television, and my pups.  It was great.  And here’s some of what I found while I was mindlessly scrolling the Internet.

This weekend, I got two hours to myself for the first time in months. Really to myself. My child was asleep. My dogs were asleep. Kyle was off playing cards with his friends. My house was clean, and there was nothing else to do but sit in my bed and scroll Instagram. It was glorious. […]

This week was a bit of a mess.  Kyle is sick.  I am sick.  We have no reliable childcare, so we’re cobbling together work time where we can.  We missed our Thanksgiving dinner pickup, and had less than two hours to shop for and cook a meal for six people.  But we’re making it work, […]
