For the first time ever, my 5 year-old son Super Boy and I took the 8:23am ET train last Wednesday from Ann Arbor (MI) back to our home in Wisconsin. And it was actually pretty cool.My son, unlike many boys his age, is not overly impressed by trains. I realize that this is vastly unusual … Continue reading The Morning Train
Today is our pooch's 7th birthday! Naturally, I felt compelled to write about it. Happy Birthday, Josie! I've written about Josie before. She's quite the character. Cute. Highly intelligent (sometimes). Extremely energetic (most of the time). Very social. Not very well behaved. (Totally our fault. I've been told I "babied" her too much as a … Continue reading Happy Birthday to Josie the Super Dog

Dear God, I suck at knitting! I learned how to do it (although I use the term "learned" loosely) about two years ago, and still it eludes me. Oh, I can do your basic knitting and your basic purling.... I can increase and decrease... I can cast on and cast off. What I cannot seem … Continue reading Knit Picking
My lovely little Super Boy never ceases to amaze me. Just the other day, when we were gearing up to head out of town to visit my dad and stepmom, I said to Super Boy that I wanted to stop by Starbucks on our way out of town to grab a coffee for the road. … Continue reading Java Junkie-in-Training
