I’m a Goofy Goober!

So party details… What started out as us looking to plan a small party for Junior’s 7th birthday ended with us renting out an entire movie theater for a private showing of Spongebob for 80 or so of our friends, family, classmates, etc. Hell, even my accountant was there! (Okay, so he happens to be […]

Dumb Stupid T-Mobile

My Sidekick has been down much of today, I believe from a hardware upgrade gone horribly wrong. I don’t know…I can’t use the phone to find out. What gives me great solace in all this is the ability to say, with 100% confidence, that Paris Hilton and I are suffering from Sidekick withdrawal together. Lindsey […]

Party Day

I think I’m ready. I tried on my crown and it looks fine, if I do say so myself. I think I’m going to go back and get a whole bunch of them, you know, just for every day. I don’t know why we don’t wear tiaras more often, really. I’m on the phone in […]

Queen for a Day

The Bright Side

The city of Leominster used there little sidewalk plow-y thing and getting out of my street this morning was a breeze. I could totally see oncoming traffic so I didn’t feel I was taking my life in my hands. I don’t remember them doing that last year, but maybe we didn’t have such scary mounds […]

The White Stuff

Okay, obligatory picture of my kid out in the snow. What he’s standing in is what’s new since the last storm. That’s also why I left the rubbish barrels in the picture – we had rubbish pickup on Monday, so that’s all new snow on top of those babies.

Snow Day 2

It’s not as bad as on the Cape (did you guys see the picture on the front page of the Globe yesterday – the houses looked like the inside of a freezer. It looked SO cool, but that’s only because I don’t live down there and my house wasn’t encased in ice. So Junior didn’t […]

It’s a Delicate Balance

Proving that it’s all a delicate balance between light and dark, sanity and insanity, winter and summer, yesterday I signed Junior up for 4 weeks of introductory ski lessons. Tonight I signed him up for Instructional League baseball. (Wait, my baby is too big for t-ball? Waaaaaaa!) So now he wants to take his ski […]

6 more inches?!

Oh man, just what we were missing around here…six more inches of snow! I wonder if they’ll cancel school or not. Ugh.
