friday random elevenish twenty-one: “my marriage is old enough to drink” edition

19 Jul

Yes, this post will go up Friday, but I am writing it, as usual, on Thursday, which, as I indicate in the title, is my twenty-first wedding anniversary. Not much is going to happen on Thursday, because dance class, but the plan is go go out for dinner on Friday; I’m thinking Ammo Brewing, because […]

Of course, it’s only Wednesday, but whatever. This three-day week does, as short […]

week late debate reflections

That said, I did catch the highlights and have read endless commentary and analysis, which while i know isn’t the ideal, it’s the situation I found myself in and better […]

meet phoenix

03 Jul

We really did not need another cat, though it was a situation I had a hard time saying “no” to, especially since everybody else cranked so hard on the house de-cluttering/summer cleaning project. The story itself is notable; you see, Phoenix is the littermate of Lukin, the eldest child’s cat who didn’t work out as […]
