A Very Big Day

on June 30, 2015

We got up at 4 a.m. so we could leave Zoomboy at the airport at 5:30. He looked really grown up, but his last hug was really tight.  Mama’s been trying to keep it together all day.  It helps that we were REALLY busy. We left the airport around 6:00 and drove straight to San… Read More

Oh Happy Day!

on June 28, 2015

Taken by Steve Parris, of Seattle  So, when I was little, my dad was a hippie– I’ve gone on about Brother Bus elsewhere, but one of the details I neglected there was that strung between the front and back of the car, right where a chauffeur would have a window on a limo, were two… Read More

Only YOU can prevent tragic ushing accidents…

on June 27, 2015

So show one of the annual recital commenced tonight, and the following things occurred in no particular order: A.  I remembered why I should never work retail, because customer service is NOT my strong suit.  Witness when the woman came in a half an hour late and got in my face because I was busy… Read More

Yes, there’s still knitting…

on June 26, 2015

So, I’ll be honest. Jay (From Joyfully Jay’s) posted an absolutely adorable picture on Twitter, featuring herself wearing a scarf she’d made in Dragonfly Fibers.  She had very kind words about me as a knitting inspiration, and I felt very inadequate, because the scarf was amazing and because… Well, this is what I’m working on… Read More

There’s No Place Like Home

on June 25, 2015

And people were happy to see me. Even the furry ones. Chicken is trying to come to terms with the idea of a “va-cay-tion”– because it’s a foreign concept. Zoomboy is packing for Europe and getting ready for the dance recital. Squish is getting ready for the dance recital and looking forward to having her… Read More

Happy Graduation, Chicken!

 I’m back in San Diego again. This time to see Chicken graduate. She’s tired, and doesn’t think she’s accomplished much. But in truth? We are so proud. Thanks, Rhys Ford, for being there to see my baby graduate, and for taking pictures and taking me to lunch when I was about to eat a really… Read More

Cover Reveal– and thank you!

on June 21, 2015

First of all, I’d like to say thank you to EVERYBODY who has told me that Keir and Nascha and Cal’s predicament with his family has moved them.  Not everybody feels that way, so your support–and belief that this story is ultimately positive and happy, and that the sweetness outweighs the pain–well, you’re Amy Lane… Read More

So I was whining about my schedule…

on June 19, 2015

Forgive the blurriness– this is Squish in a gym that’s probably 95 degrees, dancing her heart out.Tonight we’ll be on stage, hopefully with some AC. Anyway– yes. Whining. Whining is definitely the word.  But something amazing happened– let me show you. Today– get recital costumes and Father’s Day gifts from Target.  At 4:30 take kids… Read More

Happy Anniversary!

on June 19, 2015

So, every morning I wake up, go get my phone from the charger, and bring it back to bed to set the alarm for the next half-hour. Yesterday morning I did that.  Mate was up hellishly early considering the fact that we’d gotten in around ten o’clock the night before after the drive from San… Read More
