(We’ll set aside for now how politics felt more personal this past year than they have in a long time.) Well, Cecily emerged from her super-shy […]

2014: and home before dark

2013: mean and green (and over)

It’s another year, which means it’s finally time to write a blog entry about the past year. It’s time to recap what happened in list format, focusing of course on consumerist media and glossing over the things that really mattered emotionally, like our children’s milestones – the fact that Simon is actually a little human […]

2012: another year, another post

Maybe this year, you’ll get more than one post? I wouldn’t hold my breath. Let’s review last year’s resolutions: Read a dozen books (again!). Failure! I did much worse this year. I read Bossypants, and that may have been it. Cook a meal once a week. Failure! I feel like we actually ate out/got take […]

Simon Oliver

I’ve tweeted about it, told people on the phone, and put up pictures on both Picasa and Flickr, but I thought it might be nice to post something here as well. We had a baby. If you were reading through my year26 posts, you were aware that Katie was pregnant and that our due date […]

Day 365: this is it

The last day.  The final piece of this year-long puzzle.  The coup de grace.  My 26th year of life. In some ways, this was an ordeal.  There were days when I had to actively remember that I had a blog post to write and stumble to my computer, fighting off sleep, only to stare at […]

Day 1

I’ve decided, partially inspired by the 25 Things epidemic on Facebook, partially because I miss writing, and partially because I’m a narcissist who loves a challenge, that I will write a short blog entry every day of the 365 days from today (my 26th birthday) until my birthday next year.
