ShareI promise I’ve not forgotten you.  I swear.  Don’t go getting all scorned lover on me.  I know I’ve been distracted lately.  It’s just that, well, you see…we’re closing on a house today and there’s just so much to do! Sadly, that “so much” hasn’t included a lot of cooking, outside of work. I’ve been […]

ShareI’ve been on a cleaning frenzy over the last several weeks.  Both in preparation for the move and to get this apartment in ship shape so someone will actually buy it.  It’s amazing how much junk a couple can store in a reasonably small space without ever feeling too cramped. I attribute it to the […]

ShareOne of the things I’m struggling with, move-wise, is the fact that we’ll now have this whole house to take care of on our own.  That sounds horribly lazy, I realize.  Let me explain. We have a decent amount of work to do to bring our new abode up to speed. It’s a 1912 Colonial, […]

ShareMy father is not a cook.  Let’s get this straight right away.  He is a great many wonderful things, but as far as cooking goes, it’s toast and delivery pizza (and the toast thing is extremely rare, though he’s been doing pretty well on the grill, of late).  My mother buys pre-cut Cracker Barrel cheese […]

ShareThe past four days here in the Northeast have been nothing short of glorious.  It’s that first taste of Spring that has you turning your face up to a long forgotten sun, savoring a breeze that’s suddenly not quite so biting. The windows are open wide (honking cabs, be damned!), and the parks are jam […]

ShareI wax poetic (maybe that’s a stretch) about New York City a lot on this blog.  It truly is a dynamic and interesting place to live.  But there are several things that I’ll not miss when we leave.  Given that I’m feeling a little conflicted about the move to the ‘burbs, I figured I’d start […]

ShareMy long lost friends!   I have so much to tell you.  Please forgive my absence, life around these parts has been a little nutty lately. We’re moving.  To the ‘burbs.  I’m still in shock.  The last weeks have flown by in a flurry of house inspecting, contract signing, apartment listing and finance fretting.  We move […]
