Marc’s back from England, but let me tell you….it’s kind of been a long week without him.  He left on Monday morning, when I promptly freaked my freak and decided that I could NOT. FIND. MY. PHONE.  And instead of calmly looking for it, I decided to have a major panic attack, that included tears, […]

Marc’s leaving on Monday (tomorrow) to go to England for a week.  I’m pretty sure we’re both in denial about it; it’s not because I can’t function without him (I really can, I swear), but because it seems like such a crazy interruption to the regular flow of life.  You mean, I have to be […]

Temperature wise, the past few days in Boston have been glorious.  Yes, there is still snow on the ground (and ice underfoot), but I’ve been walking with my coat WIDE OPEN!  How incredible is that?  Incredible!   Yes, I’m aware it’s not going to last forever, but I am really okay with the reality of it in […]
