Old Ladies

Published on: 16 Sep, 2009

I totally dig old ladies. I love everything about them. Their hair, which they religiously get coiffed once a week. How they get dressed up in old lady dresses and pearls and heels to go to the grocery store. Their embroidered tablecloths, and hankies, and lace doilies. And best? Their attitude. I am fortunate to [...]

No more drinking Jack and Diet Coke out of a travel mug and reading Cosmo on the sidelines. (Or wait, was that just me?)

Today we remember. Everyone in our nation was touched in one way or another by the events of September 11, 2001. Each and every American citizen over the age of three remembers where he or she was when our world changed forever. We had moved to our small-town Victorian house just two weeks before. So, [...]

Today is the 4th birthday of my tiny infant sweet baby boy(friend) and yes, Oedipus is on the phone and wants his complex back. (this was Bobby’s 1st birthday party. Why couldn’t he stay a baby forever?!) The more kids you have, the faster time flies. The old saying that ‘in motherhood, the days are [...]

Fitting In Is Totally Overrated

I am the Queen of Not Fitting In. I did not fit in when I was in high school because I was kinda dorky and editor of the school newspaper and didn’t play any sports and couldn’t afford Gloria Vanderbilt jeans (God, how I wanted a pair of those, or Calvin Klein, or Guess). I [...]

Or: The Blog Post Where Marymac Admits to Being a Psycho Last week a friend of mine stopped by my house during a visit while I was hanging out in the pool with my sister in law and her kids, called me a ‘mental patient’ and asked ifI was ‘off my meds.’ I am sure [...]

This Old House

Published on: 24 Aug, 2009

Careful what you wish for, people. That’s my summary of what it’s like to live in an 1881 Victorian house. There she is. The ‘house of my dreams.’ Right?

Back to School Tears

Published on: 21 Aug, 2009

Thinking of my four little babies getting on that big yellow school bus on Monday bring tears to my eyes. Tears of joy, people. It’s been a long summer. It’s been fun, and I love, in particular, the sleeping til 9 every day. But it’s time. For Them. To Go. I packed up their crap [...]
