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 […]


Here’s a picture of Job and his new, massive bone.  It’s seriously as big as he is, pretty much.  So far, he can carry it around and he’s been gnawing at it.  His most favorite thing of all is to keep it at his side, though, especially when he’s sleeping!  What a lucky dog!!


I can’t say I’ve always been a fan of Valentine’s Day, but it’s a lot easier to love it when you’re in love.  And I am, of course.  In years past, Marc and I have always gone out of town for Valentine’s Day.  This year, because we have the new addition to the family (our […]


Infected

05Feb09

I have an ear infection.  I think it’s my first ear infection ever (it only took me 27 years to get here, thank you), at least in my cognizant memory.  I haven’t been feeling well for about a week and I couldn’t put my finger on what it was that was really bothering me, until […]


Settling in

28Jan09

Job has been with us for just a few days and I have to say, he’s fitting in quite nicely.  He is still a pretty tired boy, sleeping a lot of the evening and some of the day, but I think that that is just from adjustment, and also probably some bliss, given that he […]


Marc and I are SO excited and pleased to welcome the newest addition to our family.  He’s three years old, with black hair, brown eyes, and cute brown markings on his paws and face.  It’s our little min pin (miniature pinscher), Job! As you know, we’ve been talking about getting a dog for a REALLY […]


Catching up

21Jan09

As we do each year, Marc and I packed up our car last weekend and headed to Brooklyn, to spend a “Consortium Weekend” with Marc’s cousin (and my good friend) Seth.  The three of us have been joining forces on Martin Luther King Day weekend since 2006, spending the weekend in absolute relaxation, leaving Seth’s […]


Dog news

17Jan09

Marc and I have been jonesing after the idea of getting a dog for some time now.  We have been super responsible in the thought process–making sure we’d find a good time to get a dog, after we owned our own place and in a time after the holidays, when we’d be home and not […]
