Yard renovation complete!

A month ago, I contacted a local landscaper to talk about getting our yard looking nice. Because it looked terrible. The lemon tree had died, and was now just a scrubby bunch of spiky shoots. There was no grass, only weeds and dirt. There were soccer balls everywhere, and a big ugly shed, and a […]

1 year since I joined a cult

I am a pandemic cliche. Not just the puzzles I put together, the shows I binged, or the sourdough I started and baked with. No, it was the purchase I received one year ago today: Yeah, I laughed at the commercial just like everyone else did. I took a spinning class once and hated it. […]

13 and a third

The thirteen year + four month picture happened to fall on Easter Sunday, when we were at Grandee and Larry’s. My sister and her family were in town so these weren’t the only pics they had to stand still for!

March 11

Right around now, everyone is talking about “the last normal day.” March 11, 2020 was the last normal day for us. I took the boys to soccer practice that evening, and I used the time while they were practicing to go buy some hand sanitizer because I’d heard that might be a good idea. By […]

13 and a quarter

It’s that time again! Time to do math! That’s right, the boys are 13 years and 3 months old. So that is…159 months old! 13 and one quarter. The other day Miles told me something horrifying. “We will be 15 next year.” That is technically true, in 2022 they will be 15. But that was […]

Science! (or, a 2 in 3 chance)

On Friday, the boys might have gotten the COVID vaccine. Or maybe not. A few weeks ago, my sister texted me about a Moderna vaccine trial for adolescents, and one of the clinic sites was here! (And she works for Johnson & Johnson, tsk tsk.) So I filled out a form and blah blah boring […]

The making of the Moiras

When I was trying to figure out how to make my Moira costume, I couldn’t find any tutorials or any blog posts of people describing how they made theirs. I suspect mostly it was “find a white-ish sheet and go from there.” But no, Pam is not going to go that route. I think we […]

Mardi Gras 2021: Moiras and the BBC

What a Mardi Gras we had! All of the work we did on the house float and our costumes was so worth it. But I am exhausted, but want to get this down before I forget any of it. Yesterday I posted this tweet with a video I made teasing our costumes and special throws: […]

Mardi Gras 2021: The House Float

It’s almost Mardi Gras and my friends and I have been busy getting ready for it. I know what you’re thinking. “There aren’t any parades this year!” That’s true, but there are floats. House floats! And we have turned Stephanie and Chris’s house into one. Let me back up a bit. Before we knew Mardi […]
