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 […]

SharePost-President’s Day is when I start getting really antsy. For spring. For sunshine and flowers and chirping birds. For the prospect of a light sunburn.  For food that isn’t quite so heavy – fresh produce and lots of grilled treats. Then I realize that Punxsutawney Phil did in fact see his shadow (or didn’t he? […]

ShareMost people are of the mindset that when the cat’s away, the mouse will play.  In this apartment, the cat and the mouse actually enjoy quite a symbiotic relationship.  So really all that happens when the cat is away is that the mouse eats mushrooms.  And olives. In abundance. My better half gets home tonight […]

ShareThis past weekend my hometown received their second major dumping of the wintry white stuff. They got almost 30 inches in some spots.  Trees were down, power was out. People were stranded in their homes with nothing to do but eat, drink and play Monopoly.  I was so jealous.  We were supposed to get a […]

ShareMost of my friends seem to get pregnant just by blinking. Oops, we pulled the goalie and the very next day my pee stick came up with two pink lines! I love my friends.  They are my soul sisters, my laughter, the very best things in my life, alongside my family.  I never, ever want […]

ShareSome nights I just don’t feel like cooking.  There.  I said it.  Happy? But then I remember that it’s not just me anymore.  Five years ago I would have just picked up the phone and dialed my favorite sushi place.  Done and done. The problem with that now is that I made a deal with […]

ShareI rode the elevator yesterday with a man who complained bitterly of the cold weather we’ve been having.  In fact, that’s pretty much all I’ve heard about since New Years. Every day, the weatherman talks about the “deep freeze in the Northeast,” or the latest cold snap. My doorman keeps telling me to “stay warm!” […]

ShareThe first decade of the 21st century ended quietly for the Shanleys. To be honest, 2009 was a trying year.  Of course there were some treasured memories. This blog was certainly a fulfilling highlight.  We found a beach rental that we fell in love with.  Got upgraded to first class on a long awaited trip […]

ShareMy mom has been working on a project which essentially traces her roots (thus, my roots) back to the Revolutionary War.  Well, really she has us as far back as William the Conqueror.  I have to say I’m a little dubious of that part.  But it’s safe to say that a member of my family […]
