Annnnd, it’s been another week!

Another? Oh, all right then.

Hi, kids. I’m still here. Life is happening. And we love life when it happens. Les Miserables opened at my Kids’ high school last night. Remember that my Kid 1 played Eponine, the world’s best role for a teenage girl?[1] It was awesome. (Unless you didn’t wanted to hear the orchestra director counting through his […]

Again. Again. Again.

Do you ever feel like your life is on repeat? Those same things, again and again? Like, for instance, we watched the Les Miserables 25th Anniversary concert again this Sunday afternoon.

Good morning. Ten things:

It’s not that far away. … Started reading the first Stephen King book (fiction, that is – I read ON WRITING and was thrilled) in more than twenty years this weekend. It’s […]

REVIEW! CONCERT EDITION!

Okay, don’t go falling off your chair in surprise. I didn’t really go to a concert. Not lately, anyway. I watched one. This one. I know. It doesn’t make me any cooler. But it is so, so good, and I want to tell you everything in the world that I thought of it. Ready? Go. […]

This is Fun.

I’m a real substitute teacher. It’s fun. It is. I still have a 5000 words/week writing goal. There will be weeks I don’t make it. And that will have to be okay. But I made it last week. And today I get to teach Kid 4’s class. Which is adorable in all its first-grade glory. […]
