Every year since I was a kid, we have gone to the Goshen Fair in Goshen, CT. It’s an agricultural fair held every Labor Day weekend, and it’s about forty-five minutes away from our house. They have animals and tractor/horse/oxen pulls. They’ve got woodcutting and pie eating contests and horseback riding and bunnies and pigs …Read More
We got back from our trip to Richmond on Sunday night. After being gone for six days, there wasn’t much food in the house. Yesterday (Monday) I had plans to get caught up on laundry, clean some stuff up and get to the grocery store, but as so often happens, things did not run completely …Read More
Today was day sixteen of summer vacation. It was the first really rainy day since the kids have been out of school, and after two weeks of sun and outdoor swim practices and a few late nights and a nine-hour-long 4th of July party the other day, we were all in need of a lazy, …Read More

Most of you know that I love yoga. I’ve fallen a little bit off the wagon recently, though. Now that the kids are back to school and I have my feet back under me, I’m getting back to it. And I really hope I can inspire more people to give yoga a shot. But I understand …Read More
Tonight’s post is brought to you by my kids who sucked balls today. And Kirkland Premium Golden Margarita.
First of all, I am two margaritas into the night, so be forewarned that there is a good chance that this post will contain mumerous typos and I don’t give a crap. Second, I fucking lost it today. Like, I. SNAPPED. So I know it’s most ly my fault that the kids have been so …Read More
Yesterday I was given some interview questions to answer, and one of them was What is it like raising seven children? What is it like raising 7 children? Well, it’s not much different than raising one or two. There are just more of them. But I can give you a snapshot of the last week. …Read More
