Surfing Sunday 04.23

We have had a softball-filled weekend. We had a double-header yesterday, and today is a big “fun day” fundraiser for the league. I’m glad that Annabel really enjoys softball, and wants to participate in all the skills challenges┬átoday, like throwing contests and hitting contests. I’m sure James will also want to participate, because anything Annie…

Spring In My Step

Spring break is officially over, with Annie begrudgingly going back to school this morning (James goes back tomorrow). For the first time in years, I actually emerged from the week rested. Usually I’m longing for a vacation from my vacation! I actually got a lot of sleep, and despite having a chest cold for the…

To those who celebrate, Pesach Sameach and Happy Easter! We’ve been up for hours already today, thanks to two little kids who were VERY anxious to search for eggs. Annie, James, and even Schuyler managed to find all but one of the eggs that the Easter Bunny hid…and of course, the Easter Bunny doesn’t remember…

Hunter Gatherer

Friday was a obviously a crappy day, but it did have some bright spots. The one thing I knew would get me through the day was the Easter Egg hunt at James’ preschool. If 25 sugar-crazed kids can’t make you smile, nothing can. James had been looking forward to the egg hunt for WEEKS. His…

Eight Years Gone

On Tuesday I was instant messaging with a friend when I mentioned that I felt really anxious, as if an anxiety attack were imminent. I told her how I hated feeling like that, especially since I couldn’t identify the stressor that was causing the anxiety. All my articles were in, my taxes were done, and…

Talented

I just adore Annabel’s best friend, E. They are so sweet to each other, and they do almost everything together. When it came time to sign up for the school talent show, E’s mom and I knew the girls would want to do something together – assuming, of course, that they’d want to participate. Which,…

The kids had their regular dentist appointment on Friday. James is…not a fan of the dentist. Like, to the point where I usually have to bring another person with me and then I lay on top of him so the dentist can pry his mouth open. I loooove our dentist but I dread going because…
