Back to School

Ahh, the stench of bus exhaust is in the air today. Leominster Public Schools are back in session. This summer went by FAST. I mean, seriously, did they have more than a few weeks off? It doesn’t seem like it. I took the requisite first day of school photo, and I actually think that maybe […]

Extending My Pity

All seriousness about this Katrina thing aside, I do want to say that I seriously pity the people who rented the house we rented for vacation this week. Cause it’s a couple thousand dollars a week, and they have no sun in sight. We apparently hogged it all up. Of course, there’s no chance that […]

I Can’t Complain

Okay, I can complain, I’m good at it. But I won’t, not when I’ve got half an eye on the news reports from Louisiana. You’d think you would come back to work after vacation refreshed and raring to go, but maybe it’s the 2 weeks remaining of a 4 week contract thing that makes it […]

A Few Cape Pictures

Okay, it took me all day, but here are some photos of our trip. Of course, these are only a few of the 300 I took, but I’m not going to bore you completely. You can click the restaurant sign to pull up the page of images (it may take a few extra seconds to […]

On the Road Again

On our way home. I’m sad. So, so sad. But relaxed, so there’s that. I think we’d be close to home already if there hadn’t been an apparently *really* bad accident on Route 6. We were stuck in stop and go traffic for over an hour. Great fun. Can’t wait to start pullung together all […]

I Could Live Like This

Just wanted to check in so you’d know I’m still alive. I’m alive! Lots of fun. Best house on the planet, my friends. I don’t think we could have picked a better one. Don’t fight with each other while I’m gone. Today’s plans: siteseeing this morning while my sister’s family hits the beach for a […]

What Time Does the Beach Open?

Out of the mouths of babes. You can tell this kid spends more time going to tourist destinations than being out in the great outdoors. I could have tried to mess with his head and tell him the doors open at 9, but I was a good girl, and said they are open 24 hours […]

It’s a Major Award!

Today is Junior’s last day of camp (he isn’t going on tomorrow’s trip – he’s going to spend the day with his cousins instead). Yesterday they handed out the camp awards. I expected some sort of crazy award – the last time he got one (at the end of the school year) it was like […]

Mayo Sandwich

Good gravy, they put a lot of mayo on the sandwiches here. So in case you’re keeping track, that’s no olives but extra mayo. I would trade 2/3 of the mayo for some olives, let me tell you. Longtime readers remember the adventures of the little boy who wouldn’t eat anything. He has expanded out […]

Where Am I Going?

I knew it was bound to happen. This morning I suddenly realized I was going the wrong way to work. That’s such a GREAT feeling, knowing that you have to backtrack. Puts a smile on your face and a kick in your step, it does. Obviously, I needed way more sleep than I got. The […]
