Everybody just calm down…

Some fun things to mention after Christmas… *  Yes, we got a new car.  It’s a Honda Odyssey.  The first thing we did was put one of those Supernatural stickers on the back window– you know, in case of repossession? * It made cruising for Christmas lights very much more fun than it has been… Read More

Happy Holidays

on December 24, 2014

Even though my family is an uneasy mix of pagan, Christian, and agnostic, I’ve never had a problem being wished a Merry Christmas or a Happy Hanukah or Happy Ramadan or Blessed Yule or Solstice or Pancha Ganapati or Saturnalias or Imbolc or really any holiday for that matter. Whatever culture you grew up with or faith… Read More

So this happened about five minutes ago.  It’s fifty degrees outside, and Zoomboy is standing in front of me, doing the pee-pee dance, asking me if there really is such thing as Gravity Falls, Oregon. (He likes the show on Disney– as do I!) Anyway– I look from his Perry the Platypus shorts and his… Read More

I texted Mate yesterday morning, when I was dropping the kids off for school  I think someone’s been fucking with my car. The steering wheel position was off, and it’s making really bad noises.

The Bells of Times Square

on December 13, 2014

 Okay– I’ll be honest.  I spent four days writing up the posts and choosing the excerpts for the blog tour for this one, and *whew* I’m exhausted. Part of the reason I left Whiskey and Patrick up for the extra day was that I was all blogged out.  Between the tour, a blog I wrote for… Read More

Letters to the World

on December 8, 2014

Okay– I’ve had one of those “sleep catch up” days that only happen when you don’t get enough sleep for, like, a month. I’m not sure if I’m capable of holding a single thought through a whole blog post, not to mention a cheery disposition.  (If you’re wondering why I posted the picture of the… Read More

Geoffie Home

on December 4, 2014

We told the kids before we left for the trip that they’d better enjoy Thanksgiving, because Christmas was going to be A. Thin, and B. Anticlimactic after eating dinner in Disneyland and coming home to a puppy.  They totally appreciated the warning. And they totally appreciated the trip. I’m not sure if I mentioned it,… Read More
