ShareLast week I took Luke to a play date at my friend Kim’s house. She asked me to bring some kind of grain salad, as part of the grown ups lunch. I decided on bulgar salad with roasted peppers, zucchini and herbs, purely because it’s what I had on hand. For the kids, it was PB&J’s […]

ShareOn the way home from the Apple store today, I found myself listening to the Miranda Lambert song, “The House that Built Me. When this song came out two years ago, I got emotional every time it played, thinking of the house where I grew up. It was an 1800’s Victorian-style farmhouse, with brown shingles, […]

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 […]

ShareMy husband is one of those lucky people who comes from a big family on both sides. Not only that, but most of his cousins are in a similar age bracket: late 20’s to about 40, all with burgeoning careers and adult lives and families of their own. Last weekend, we came together with the […]

ShareWhen I was in 8th grade I cheated in Latin class. We had to hand in our homework and I convinced a friend to let me copy hers because I, shockingly, wasn’t exactly prepared. Strangely enough, we had the exact same wrong answers. Busted. I also, on occasion, would try to sneak a peek at […]

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, […]

ShareThis morning started out like any other morning. Several “snooze” sessions, my best Oscar the Grouch impersonation, and a large cup of coffee. Until I looked out the window. After several days of much needed, heavy rain, the skies over Long Island dawned clear, cool, and heart-breakingly blue. The perfect day to be out in […]

ShareIt must be a slow news week.  All anyone can talk about is LeBron James (am I the only person on the planet who could give a rats you-know-what where that guy ends up?). Well, LeBron and the heat wave, that is. Here in the Northeast, temps have soared over the 100 degree mark more […]

ShareOne of my favorite things about New York City is that it affords its inhabitants the ability to be completely spontaneous.  There’s no driving, no worries about parking or the mall lot being too full.  Your choices are not Applebee’s or Chili’s, by default (though I’d go Chili’s all the way, there). You might wait […]

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 […]
