Whip It

13Oct09

Yesterday was an off day for us (though not for everyone, I realize).  Around 9 a.m., we saw a preview for the new Drew Barrymore-directed movie, Whip It.  “Let’s go!” I said to Marc.  He agreed and we were able to get it together to attend the $6 pre-noon showing in Burlington.  Score! I didn’t […]


I am really easily amused.  I absolutely get excited about most things that people wouldn’t even think about, but because I am who I am, I get jazzed just thinking about certain things.  Right now, I’m pretty jazzed about the following: 1.  Marc and I are going to Ten Tables tonight in Cambridge.  We got […]


So Marc and I had the luxury of spending the weekend together, which hasn’t happened in two weeks, making this weekend (even though I had to work) completely blissful.  I have to remember that I am allowed to get USED to spending time with my husband alone–and that it’s ok! We had a “big movie” […]


Ay yay yay…U2

11Mar09

U2 is playing a show about a mile from our house at the Somerville Theater.  It’s absolutely crazy, because it’s a TEENY TINY venue — at least as far as U2’s concerned, only about 900 seats, though probably less.  Marc and I have seen a few small names there — Mike Doughty (love) and Duncan […]


I love winter, probably more than most, but I’m freakin’ DONE.  I’m ready for it to be spring and somewhat warm, and for there to be no snow.  Rain is fine, just no more snow.  PLEASE.  I don’t think my brain can handle it anymore.  And the bottoms of my jeans are completely wrecked. I’m […]


Happy March.  It’s absolutely lovely here, it was actually warm today and even a little sunny.  I’m sure it will last a whole 5 more hours, but it was lovely. 1.  Pho:  Yes, I love soup.  I have written several posts about my favorite food.  My favorite of the favorites is Vietnamese Pho.  The delicious, […]


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 […]


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 […]


I just posted this on my facebook page, and I thought I’d copy it and post it on my blog.  Enjoy….and tell me a little fun fact about you, too!! 1.  I hate that I like American Idol.  I really hate that I like it.  Like … really really hate.  I blame Marc.  🙂 2. […]


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 […]
