ShareIt’s been so long I hardly know where to begin. My loyal readers (are there any left?) will remember that my last post, nearly three months ago, was on the eve of our family trip to Montauk.  We were taking my mother-in-law Carol out east for a vacation. As I stated in the post, she […]

ShareI am headed to the east end of Long Island for one last summer trip.  I have spent a decade of summers in Westhampton Beach, the first town in the Hamptons (and so un-Hampton-y that they actually don’t even list it on the map in most Hamptons publications). This year, hubby and I decided we’d […]

ShareThose of you who reside in the Northeast can attest to the fact that this feels like one of the longest winters in history. It’s only February, yet I find myself longing for spring and warm breezes earlier and more often than I have in years. I’m not one of those people who sink into […]

ShareI’ve been getting pretty fired up about our first holiday season in our new neighborhood. Starting today, we’ll have a houseful of family for my favorite all-American holiday. Beside the fact that Thanksgiving is a holiday based solely on food, love of country, and giving thanks, it’s also the official start of the holidays. In […]

ShareI always loved Halloween as a kid.  It was the highlight of the fall.  And I don’t even like candy. I had the kind of mom who’d make my costumes herself.  There were never any store bought mermaid or Miss America costume-in-a-bag outfits in our house. I think the best costume I ever had was […]

ShareYesterday I had a procedure at the hospital that was perhaps the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced. But don’t worry, I lived to tell the tale. I know you can’t wait to hear it. I went in for something called a hysterogram, more commonly known as an HSG.  The doctor uses a catheter, contrast, […]

ShareHere’s the thing: I feel guilty.  All.  The.  Time. The littlest comment will send me tunneling down the guilt spiral.  Mom’s friend says “oh, I know your parents really miss you!” Kill me. Slowly. The mother-in-law mentions she’s by herself for the weekend and wouldn’t I like to grab a bite?  Guilt stinging like a […]

ShareWe were back in Stratton for the long weekend, skiing and sitting by the fire and enjoying too much Merlot (or Cabernet, or Pinot, or Malbec…we’re not picky). A running problem I have with skiing is this: to get the good runs in, before the hoodlums and ski school descend upon the mountain, you have […]

ShareOde to a pumpkin.  How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways.  More than a hot shower after a day in the cold and rain.  Certainly as much as your friend and cousin the butternut squash.  I’d take you over a Ravens win any day.  Ok.  Well, not really.  That one was a […]

ShareI got back late last night from a week in the UK. Before leaving, I was lamenting the end of summer and not quite ready to embrace all of fall’s bounty. No more, my friends. After a long weekend in the English countryside, hiking through hilly towns and pastures of grazing cows and sheep, in […]
