Touchstones
Chris Cornell. Dammit. We lost another of our grungy, reluctant rock gods who ushered us into the 90s, one of the dirty boys who whispered through our earphones and ushered people like me through the Mickey Mouse surface-polished boy band years, who kept me...

On Calling It a Day
I'm pretty honest with my daughter. She's 12 and I think it is important for her to know that he's not the only one who struggles. That sometimes grownups make it up as we go along just like she does. And that that is okay. One of these conversations was cl...

Sunday Morning Coming Down
It's been two weeks since my schedule changed and so far, so good. It's been an adjustment but one that everyone in the house has been able to make. Well, most of us. I think Trixie maybe isn't a fan. Before, our weekday morning routine was very routine: ev...

Broken Stories
I'm so over the morning news. Anyone else feeling me on this? I like to be informed about all the things in the world because that makes the responsible adult part of me feel like her needs are met. But some days I just get to feeling like the breaking news...

Stress Nesting
My husband actually asked me the other day: Are you pregnant? Um, no. Most definitely not! But I could see why he asked. I've been irritable. Feeling sick. Major headaches. And the nesting. So much nesting. Exhibit A: All the Cookies I had been planning to ...

Taking Back Thursday and Other Things
Confession: Thursdays are not my favorite. It's the fourth day in a series of waking up way too early and not going to bed early enough, the fourth day of a week that's starting with peanut butter on toast because it's easy but I know I shouldn't start my d...
